Morrowind and Oblivion on sale, how are they on PC?

#1ajko000Posted 8/3/2013 1:26:28 PM
I've only played Skyrim, and I didn't like it as much as I used to because once you do literally everything in the game twice, it becomes slightly boring.


I'm wondering if in these earlier two the games are almost exactly the same, or if there are some subtle differences or monumental differences, or both.


My big irk about Skyrim was primarily the menu system, which could be remedied, the HUD lag, which could kinda be fixed, and the god awful combat in terms of weapons and levelling up. The magic system I felt was below average, but I hear it was much better in the earlier games?

What should I expect in terms of Oblivion and Morrowind?

Also if someone could tell me the exact time the sale is ending, I'd be grateful.

Since all of them have mods on PC, the chances of you doing everything interesting the game can offer is infinitesimal. Mod. The. Hell. Out of them.

Skyrim is much more streamline then oblivion, so what problems you have in skyrim is worse in oblivion (ui, fighting, leveling etc)

Morrowind can feel more clunky but it's a good game with good story. Actually conversations is much deeper with more factions and people having a lot more to say mainly due to written dialog, there's very little voice acting here.
Your choices also have consequences. Rising to high ranks in some factions will lock you out of others and they will conflict.
With mods you can make the game look very modern too

Which do you guys recommend for someone who really liked Skyrim?

Morrowind bothered me watching my brother play a couple months ago because of the graphics, but his was also original Xbox, and I know there are texture mods that make it look good.

There are mods for literally everything for Morrowind and Oblivion, so I would say get them. Even without mods they're fantastic games.

But if you got bothered by Morrowind's graphics to the point that it's actually an issue, I don't know if you'll like the gameplay. It's very different than Skyrim.
