I own Multiple copies of both retail including expansions and GoTY editions, I am still tempted to buy them on Steam though... Since there are no Steam achievements or anything though, and no CD keys even if I remember correctly, and I can install them and add them to my Steam list; I guess there is not a real big reason to buy them on Steam. Easy to download on Steam anytime and have updated, but not that hard to use DVDs anyway; and sure you can download them fully updated at many places free. I still might buy them though lol

Morrowind and Oblivion are legendary games. They're worth over 100$ and provide unforgettable fun. I hope people who buy them will enjoy them.

I like the fact you don't have multiple disks and have to install them in the specific order, you get it on Steam, just download the game and play it!

With Morrowind, and for that matter Oblivion, the basic install is the least of your worries, even if it came on ten disks. It's the amount of mods to get it all up to date and pretty that's the real install nightmare.

I got L4D2 from the Great Gift Pile and traded it for Morrowind. I hope I find some time to play it soon . I wouldn't pay $10 for it though - in fact, I don't think I'd pay $5 for it today...

After installing latest MGE XE and Morrowind Overhaul it looks better than a lot of modern games, so totally worth buying for 10$.

If I had a couple hundred extra hours and maybe 10 games off my backlog list, I'd be tempted to pick up Morrowind and give it a spin.

Older games have been growing on me. For some reason I've been disliking shiny new graphics and prefer some simpler, less flashy designs.

True - been playing Baldur's gate for about 10 years after release... played Neverwinter Nights 1 for 5 years after release too...

Gameplay is king to me...

Gamestop has a way to get Morrowind/Oblivion for 'free'

http://impulsedriven.com/products/ESD-IMP-W3004

Buy Skyrim and the other 2 are free.

Unfortuately though Skyrim is Steamworks, the other 2 are not. Thus you will be stuck using the GS client.
