I was a Morrowind fanatic when it originally released. FANATIC. I had multiple characters that eventually all evolved into jacks-of-trade type deals, but probably by my own design. Character creation is historically rich in the ES series, so I don't expect anything less in Skyrim.

Really? In every way? I would expect graphics and mechanics to be improved with each new addition to a franchise but gameplay is the single, most important characteristic. Otherwise known as "fun". If they don't improve the fun, what's the point?

So I ask: is it really better in every way?

I don't recall having too many issues with gameplay, but I played it back in '02 on the console. I'm sure it's quite a different experience to replay nearly 10 years later, especially after playing its descendent.

Morrowind had a robust enchantment system that I was sad to see so mutilated in Oblivion. Though, in hind sight, those god-like characters with uber gear kinda sucked the enjoyment out of the game very quickly.

That could be part of that (sometimes annoyingly) rich character creation system. If your friend didn't set short blade as a major skill and doesn't have a high speed (short blade's governing attribute), then that will negatively impact accuracy. Accuracy can also be diminished by illnesses/curses and noobiness.

I'm such a fucking dork.

I'll find out what he picked, I haven't looked at the creation system very much.

I'm probably a dork too so, at least you're not alone?  ;D

The Pamasaurus:

We can talk about games as much as you want, promise.

My Morrowind character favourite is the agile thief. My last character ended up being able to steal things from in front of people. NOTE: Pickpocketing was faulty, so the victim almost always knew you were there.
