The Elder Scrolls 3 Morrowind Game Of The Year ...


Some aspects of The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind haven't aged well, which is understandable considering the game originally launched in 2002. However, it's still a worthwhile experience for Elder Scrolls fans, and it's interesting to go back and see how Bethesda used it to establish the blueprint that would later be used to bring Oblivion and Skyrim to life. With The Elder Scrolls 6 still years away from release, now is as good a time as any to revisit the classics like Morrowind.




The Elder Scrolls 3 Morrowind Game of The Year ...



The two new expansions add roughly 100 hours of gameplay to a title that was already best described as massive. Completing everything in GOTY Edition should keep the average player occupied for at least several hundred hours-making this a great game for people who want to buy one game a year and play it forever.


Overall, whether or not one enjoys Morrowind: Game of the Year Edition depends on whether they liked the first game. Those who found the original overwhelming or uninspiring will want to skip the expansion. However, RPG fans who liked the open-ended gameplay and freedom of the first game will want to take a return trip-the two expansions with over 100 hours of new adventures coupled with the $30 price tag make this game one of the steals of the year.


Oblivion is my favourite elder scrolls game, but I would consider this a close second. The quests and stories are superior, but it plays drastically differently and is quite dated. You could potentially mod the game to fix this, however, I have not tried. Oblivion > Morrowind >> Skyrim, in my opinion.


The game has over 300 books (not counting scrolls). One particular compilation of the text was 1,241 sheets of 8.26'' by 11.00'' paper. PC Gamer weighted the in-game text as equal to 6 standard-size novels. Many of these books provide long, serial stories, and provide hints as to the background and history of the game. One critic in particular, Phillip Scuderi, remembered Morrowind for its great literary richness. To him, the in-game literature and its integration within the game was Morrowind's "most original and lasting contribution to the history of games", one that would place it beside Planescape: Torment as one of the most important games of all time. Such themes are echoed in other responses to the game, such as that of RPGamer's Joseph Witham, who found a story "discreet" in its progression, with a dungeon-crawling feel, standing alongside a "whole world of unique history" with books forming the greater part of the player's interaction with that world. Most of the books were reused in Oblivion.


The scale of the game was much reduced from the earlier concept, focusing primarily on Dagoth Ur and a smaller area of land. It was decided that the game world would be populated using the methods the team had developed in Redguard; that is, the game objects would be crafted by hand, rather than generated using the random algorithmic methods of Arena and Daggerfall. By 2000, Morrowind was to be unequivocally a single-player game, with no chance of multiplayer extension. In the words of Pete Hines, Bethesda's Director of Marketing and PR: "No. Not on release, not three months after, no no no." The project, despite the reduced scale, became a massive investment. According to the team's reasonings, the endeavor took "close to 100 man-years to create". To accomplish this feat, Bethesda tripled their staff and spent their first year of development on The Elder Scrolls Construction Set, allowing the game staff to easily balance the game and to modify it in small increments rather than large. According to project leader Todd Howard, the Construction Set came as the result of a communal yearning to develop a "role-playing operating system", capable of extension and modification, rather than a particular type of game. Despite the additional staff, designer Ken Rolston would later state that, compared to Oblivion, Morrowind had a small design team.


The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon, announced on February 14, 2003, and scheduled for release in May of the same year, went gold by May 23,Tribunal in November 2002. Bloodmoon is a larger expansion than Tribunal, in terms of area covered and content created; it expands the game's main map to include the untamed island of Solstheim, a frigid northern tundra sprinkled with forests, located to the northwest of Vvardenfell. These additions marked a return to the "open-ended gameplay" and "free-form exploration" of the original, in contrast to the linearity and confinement of Tribunal. Reviews for Bloodmoon were, again, generally positive. Aggregate scoring sites Metacritic and Game Rankings both gave the game generally favorable scores: Metacritic, a score of 85; Gamerankings, a score of 83.


The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition was announced May 12, 2003 and released October 30 of the same year It compiled both the Tribunal and Bloodmoon expansions, along with patches available only for the PC release, and offered them up in one single package for both PC and Xbox platforms; something which, previously, Xbox owners had not had access to. Absent, however, from the Xbox version was the improved journal included in Bethesda's Bloodmoon and Tribunal releases, as well as the later patched editions of Morrowind's original release. Reviewers responded to the absence negatively. Nonetheless, reviews for the GOTY set were generally positive; more so than all previous releases. Metacritic gave the game a score of 88; Game Rankings, a 90.
