hello all. i have oblivion for ps3 never finshed it tho but i guess ill get back into it somtime :D
i bought morrowwind in the steam 5 day special sale thing for £3.75 odd after hearing good things from it..
my first thoughts were good when i got of the ship but as i got into the town i thought... nah
the thing annoys me the most is the dialogue box, oblivion has voice in this you gotta read EVERYTHING its so hard to use as well i got confused about how to use it.
so eventually it just sat there and then i uninstaleld it so thought id get some feed back on here, also the quests are hard to understand to know where to go ect ect

There are lots of fans who swear that Morrowind was the best game. There are also those who see how the gameplay was improved in Oblivion, and understand that Morrowind is a bit too hardcore for most average action/rpg players.
Personally, I loved Morrowind for it's huge open world(much bigger then Oblivion's world). It also had a much better feel of towns, with lots of NPCs that really were not for any quest, but simply were there. In contrast, nearly everyone in Oblivion has a quest connected to them. I loved that in Morrowind I could ask nearly everyone how they felt about "the Mages Guild", and many of the races had very differing opinions on the different subjects.
However, I also hated it at the same time. After playing Oblivion, little things keep me from playing Morrowind. Things like the lack of a quest marker system, and the 'dice rolling' combat instead of Oblivion's 'if you hit them you deal damage', really show Morrowind's age.
In my opinion, Morrowind is still a very fine game. It's not a bad game at all, and has a lot of that classic RPG feel. However, I don't think it aged well. What we want and expect out of a game has changed over the years, and Morrowind, at least for me, doesn't fit that slot in my entertainment anymore. It was fun, I loved it, but I'd be hard pressed to find a reason to go back to it now that I've gotten used to Oblivion.
In a sense, I guess Bethesda did a really good job of making Oblivion as a true sequel if it can spiritually replace the old game in my list. :)

I actually disagree.
Morrowind is... a very different game then Oblivion. I actually much prefer it to Oblivion for several reasons.
One the compass. I hated the compass in Oblivion entirely because it made questing far to easy. You just fast travel and your done, or you just ride your horse and fight a random mudcrab. You still know exactly where to go even though your character might have been born on the other side of the world and didn't even know how to read a map till the start of the game. He still knows the entire layout of a dungeon and where the exit to it is.
Morrowind required the player to do a lot more work, and it didn't baby the player as much. With Morrowind the dice rolling system took a long while to get used to. However Morrowind's non-leveled reward system was far superior then to Oblivion's. In Oblivion at level 20 bandits wear Daedric armor. In Morrowind going into a Dungeon filled with Vampires, if you weren't prepared your ♥♥♥ was cookie dough. In Oblivion you just need to block every attack and realize the AI is so simple you just need to block every half second and slash. That way you'll catch them off guard.
Overall Morrowind is one of those games you shouldn't buy on impulse. Especially if you enjoyed Oblivion beforehand. The main issues with Oblivion is over how consoleized it is. The same with Fallout 3 really.
