Seriously? I got on the TES wagon when Oblivion came about. Afterwards, following the recommendation of every TES fan in the world, I tried to get into Morrowind, but I couldn't take the dated tech and graphics. Was it the plot? The environment? The characters? Why is it so loved?

Thing is, it wasn't all that great.

I got my start with Oblivion, so I'm no expert, but I'm guessing it'd be the complexity.

Morrowind when it was released at the time was up to date and brilliant
It's normal really, it's easy to play games that look more realistic as you go on but much harder the other way around

It means little more than when you join a faction, the members of other factions have their dispositions lowered.

This is the amazing level of the depth of choice in Morrowind. The fact that you can become the leader of the...

It seems that people forgot exactly what went on in Morrowind, and only remember the good parts.

Nostalgia. It's a good game though. IMO Morrowind >/= Skyrim > Oblivion

It's still a great game. But back then, I suspect it was magnificent. I played it 2011 and had a blast. (although it starts insanely slow due to horrible stamina.) I can't imagine how much more fun I would have had if I played it when released. Thankfully, Oblivion introduced me to the wonderful world of TES.

It's the same reason why people shrug when they now play FFVI & VII, MGS, Ocarina of Time, Halo 1, etc. You had to be there.

I dunno man. I still play OoT. It held up very well. FFVI too, for that matter.

I'm old though. Those games still look good to my eyes. = )
