I started the series with Morrowind, which I played the shit out of for months on end. Then I got Oblivion and did the same, and then the same again for Skyrim, and I still play all 3 games at least periodically (including ~50 hours in Morrowind during my limited free time this semester). While Morrowind had the most interesting main story in the 3 main Elder Scrolls games, and it certainly had the best VARIETY in weapons and magic, I just can't buy the idea that Morrowind was the best game out of the 3. Even with the nostalgia I have playing it, or hearing the iconic music when on Solstheim in Skyrim, I just can't understand why people think Morrowind was the best. The combat system was atrocious and prevented ranged combat and to a lesser extent magical combat from being viable character builds unless you min/max your character to make absolutely sure that you don't run out of magicka and get absolutely fucked when you fight more than one opponent without chugging potions or resting in between, or as a ranged character you need to spend all of your money training marksman so your ranged attacks that hit their target will actually have a chance of connecting.

The travel and exploration system is weak because at low levels, or on characters without a high speed stat like heavily armored warriors, it takes an eternity to get anywhere without spending what little gold you have on the limited fast travel system and for the most part the environment isn't interesting enough to be worth journey (although it doesn't get nearly as boring and samey as Oblivion's environment). It's a pain in the ass to not be able to carry all of the loot out of the dungeon and have to make multiple trips to the city to sell it all, but at least in the later games you don't need to spend an hour walking back and forth to do it. Yes, the world size is a major asset in Elder Scrolls games, but in later games you can get around between most locations quickly if you want to and walk the trip if you want to, where in Morrowind unless the journey is between specific locations you HAVE to walk the distance. Don't tell me that all the trips between the cities and Ashlander sites over and over through the same barren terrain without anything happening wasn't boring as hell beyond the first trip.

For other details of the gameplay: In Oblivion and Skyrim you actually got perks for increasing your skills instead of just having higher numbers. There are complaints about the simplicity of gameplay in the later games due to quest markers and fast travel, which you can turn off or ignore respectively if you want to, making them invalid complaints. In Skyrim you fight a lot of dragur, whereas in Morrowind the cliff racer problem was so bad that Bethesda actually apologized for the sheer quantity of the fuckers in the game. In Morrowind most characters would stand in one place or walk around one area at all times, while in the later games they actually had schedules, making the world feel more real and get stale slower. Morrowind had the biggest map, but the later games, particularly Skyrim, were much more packed with things to do due to random events and a higher concentration of dungeons and settlements. Skyrim even has a system that picks random locations for some of the quests and objectives so you don't go through exactly the same mission every time you go through some of the quests with a new character, and Skyrim had more of a crafting system than Morrowind with the addition of smithing/mining.

Morrowind was one hell of a great game, and it does have some advantages over later games, like being able to kill any character you want, but it seriously doesn't make sense to call it the best game out of the 3. The best for its time perhaps, but not the best overall.

Well I've finished Arena, morrowind, oblivion and skyrim so I consider myself a pretty solid fan.
Anyways I like oblivion the most because I found it to be the most fun. I liked skyrim the second most because it was darker and I enjoyed that tone for an elder scrolls game and morrowind last (Not that it was bad it was amazing).
My reason for morrowind being last though is because the combat was trash even for an elder scrolls game. It was point and click until the chance to hit succeeds enough for him to die. And the plot was retarded. You kill a literal god Dagoth ur, then leave the room and this azura bitch is like "gr8 job m8 here's a piece of crap ring not worth carrying. now fk off fgt bich". And oblivions ending was all giant dragons busting shit apart and biting a giant daedra god.
Skyrims was 'gr8 job m8 u killed literately the easiest and lamest boss so if you want to fight a real cool boss you gotta get this dlc (it was a fucking awesome dlc and gave us a REAL final boss fight.. I speak of course about the other dragonborn the vampire was alright)
You just got #REKT by my opinion

I like both oblivion and morrowind, but I think oblivion was a bit more approachable when it came to difficulty. Morrowind was one of the first video games I played and it was also one of the hardest. I'm not saying I didn't love it once I got older but damn "here traveler try to find this obscure dungeon half way across the world with just verbal directions. Also, be wary of any creatures that are like 4x your level especially if you go to the wrong dungeon by mistake." It's just my opinion, but the missions in oblivion were more fun, and the world was more immersive. Skyrim is fun but it ruined the fun of some of the skills and don't even get me started on the magss guild or the fighters guild.

this is outta the blue, but I just wanted to say that you're one of the few FJ users that's willing to state your view or position on a subject, even if it clearly goes against that of the general community. granted, some of those positions might not be "correct" or agreed by me, I still appreciate and respect the thought you tend to put into them.

don't really know what brought this up. just felt like a good time to say it.

Wait. What. People follow me? And know my name? To specifically read my opinions? Why? For what purpose do you do this?

Thanks, and you're welcome.
