Will over at Criminally Weird has a post about going back to Morrowwind after playing Oblivion. I noticed the exact same thing: Oblivion didn’t wow me. I did not fall in love with it. But it did ruin my relationship with Morrowwind.
When playing Oblivion, I longed for the greater depth of plot and characters that Morrowwind offered, but going back I miss the many interface and gameplay improvements. Maybe I’m just hard to please.
Ah well. I’m sure the next game will have both. I just have to wait. Until the next one. In four or five years.
