    Not so pumped :( I found the last elder scrolls to not live up to morrow wind.

    But still worth a play to get a peak at those graphics!

    I just hope they make the dungeons/exploration aspect way more interesting. I absolutely loved Oblivion, but after 20 hours of searching, the underground/ruined castle/elvish ruins all start to look identical.

    Can't wait for this though, if Fallout is anything to go by, they're definitely getting there with the less samey looks :D

    I was just about to say it's an unfortunate release date as it will be competing with MW3 but then I realised the Elder Scrolls target audience is a lot different!

    Looks cool, I hope that Bethesda Softworks finally decide to upscale their graphics.

    Hopefully they redeem themselves after the terrible dissappointment of Oblivion, I also loved Morrowind though. The whole level scaling, lack of treasure hunting and everything being terribly generic was far too dull. It didn't have the oh wtf is this at the bottom of this random cave, a note describing something then OMG boss and super item in the next room. The fallout games then proceeded to be oblivion with guns.. Bethseda has a lot to make up for in my eyes.

    The beauty that oblivion lacked was the drive to explore every nook and cranny looking for that elusive random awesome item/mythos. That is what kept me going with morrowind a few times through and many many hours.

    Exactly, I wouldn't mind if they re-did morrowind with Oblivions gameplay minus the level scaling. That just got really annoying :(

    That being said, I still loved Oblivion; although Morrowind was much better.

    Stealth, I would say oblivion was a decent game , where morrowind was an equisite one. They just haven't redeemed themselves since they started on the graphical focus that began with oblivion. No better time than the present however.

    The main campaign just needs the huge epic adventure feel back, I would settle for that.

    Goddamn it. I already have Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 3 and The Witcher 2 to contend with. This is too much!

    I'm going to get so slain for this, but... :D

    I think they did well with Oblivion. I tried Morrowind several times, and I realized the game IS something awesome, but I simply couldn't get over the graphics. I *love* old graphics, 8/16 bit, old school adventure game style pixel drawing etc...but Morrowind just looked too awful no matter what I did. Even tried graphics mods.

    So I missed the game, but I am loving Oblivion a lot and the level scaling was easy to mod away. Just like almost every other annoyance in the game. And I actually prefer the fairytale-like "generic" setting :) Morrowind's fantastic, weird sceneries weren't for my tastes so much.

    Definetly waiting for Skyrim now.

    Yeah I know right, I remember playing Morrowind for hours and hours before realizing there's anything close to a main quest :lol:
