Sorry about this being a bit confronting, but we can't go through the history of the site and not ask the big question *gasp* Which do you prefer? *another gasp*
Mmm, I never played Morrowind, so I can't say that I like it or not.
Oblivion is cool, but worthless without good mods.
I can't believe so few voted for Morrowind. That game was a great example of fantasy in general and on top of that, it was a challenging RPG set in an exotic, hostile world.
Oblivion on the other hand is an overly casual, sickeningly easy hack-and-slash-and-shoot piece of generic rubbish - the people who populate its tired cities are all the same, the Ayleid/Cave/Fort/Oblivion dungeons are all the same, even the realms of hell in Oblivion are all the same. Its only saving grace is Shivering Isles.
I've also never played Morrowind, but I enjoy very much playing Oblivion, in fact, is the only single player game I have been playing for a long time
OFC this wouldnt happen if we didnt have this wonderful modding community!
Morrowind gameplay+Oblivion graphics=YAY
Oblivion is probly the greatest non-mmo rpg of our time, and it will probly stay that way until Bethesda makes the next TES.
Morrowind was fine but it was lacking somthing... oblivion filled in most of the voids but we lost our beloved fantasy world.
Since it takes place in Cyrodiil, they tried to "Humanize" it make it relate more to our actual human society, Morrowind was a strange dark elven land which is why things are mysterious to us and is why we can call it fantasy.
we need Dark Messiah game engine in Oblivion, cause comon, in Oblivion it's just too primitive.
But that's my opinion.
i voted oblivion bescause, i have morrowind also but every time it shut down after five minutes so i cant play it
Morrowind was absolutely phenomenal in the vastness of the game. It would take you a good two or three hours to trek across the island on foot, real time, and that was if you ran in a straight line without fighting anything.
Plus, there were more types of weapons and WAY more factions/faction quests.
Sure, Oblivion has shiny new graphics and a revamped combat system that actually makes the Block skill useful, but it's put too much non-fantasy emphasis on a fantasy-style game.
This isn't really a fair vote, there are a good amount of people who just started the Elder scrolls series, I'm still considering getting Morrowind and giving it a go, but I'm not sure it'd be worth the time now that I've played the sequel. Anyways from what I've read, they've both got their ups and downs, but I've played Oblivion so I'll have to vote that way.
Wow, I'm amazed at how many people haven't played Morrowind, or just don't like it as much as Oblivion. I found Morrowind much more fun to play in the long run, and in the forums a lot of people agree with me, but it looks like the public has pretty much spoken.
morrowind was a HUGE game and there was tons of hidden stuff, i liked bloodmoon the most cause it was fun to play a werewolf, but the only reason that it took so long to move from one side to the other is because you moved extremly slow, and block sucked, but it was a great game.
oblvion seemed very small, because you could trek from one side to the other in a very short time especially with fast travel, the reason why oblivion was so bad is because of the fact that TES became so popular that everyone started to play and they needed to make the game more user friendly, so you got fast travel and compass and all that, which sucked but it shows the popularity of it, its like star wars, the first three made it so popular that when the 4th came out they added jar jar binks to make it more kid friendly which sucked but again it just goes to show you how popular star wars was
so i voted both, a combination of the two would be awsome, also oblvions story line kicked morrowinds in the A hole, only because of that part where you have to search forever for those people and all that other parts that are similar
Simply - TES3: Morrowind.
I agree with #3. Oblivion looks so much better than Morrowind, but that's about all it has going for it (except maybe for the functional sneak system). Morrowind was so much deeper and more interesting, and the gameplay wasn't just hack and slash. Shivering Isles is the only reason I play Oblivion; and the only reason I play Shivering Isles is because it reminds me of Morrowind. If only Oblivion were interesting...
Sorry to post again, but thank you #7! I just checked out Dark Messiah, and it looks awesome! Seems like a more intereactive Oblivion with some Morrowind thrown in YAY! Only problem is that it's got linear gameplay...Well I change my above post to this: the next Elder Scrolls game needs to be all the features of Morrowind + the graphics, sneak and block skill of Oblivion + the interactive gameplay and destructable environments of Dark Messiah.
How about this:
We stop saying bethesda should steal other people's gameplay and create a game that has it's own unique gameplay/graphics.
Just because they put alot of features from games that you like, it doesn't make it a good game.
Let Bethesda figure out what they want to do with the next TES, they are wining a barrage of awards with oblivion, and oblivion definatelly has more players now then morrowind did so they are obviously doing somthing right.
Um, Griffin. We aren't telling Bethesda what they should or should not do. We are simply giving opinions, not holding them at gunpoint. Are people not allowed to express what they liked, didn't like or would like in the next installment? It isn't a crime, and I don't think it is up to you to tell us what to do.
Ok your right
And just so people know, I'm going to upload a file and then I'll be gone for a few days.
Lol, never played Morro.
I have to say both, because i think the games are to different to compare, and both are good in their own ways.
Both shouldn't be an option in a poll like this.
i completely and utterly agree with Fadeaway.
Morrowind truly was the better of the two.

|Why do I never get around to posting comments until the poll is closed... |
Anyway; In my opinion, Morrowind is superior only because Oblivion requires such a fancy PC (which I don't have) and beacuse it is nostalgic. I think that Morrowind felt more other-worldly, where Oblivion was just... TOO real.
