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 will ask him again and get back to you with details!

FFII style. I loved that idea.

My friend comparing Morrowind to Oblivion:

"Movement is eh, stealth isn't as good.  Dialogue is difficult, persuasion is insanely difficult.  There is a take all button but you still have to open everything up like a chest. (Including flowers)

In Morrowind if you hit something you don't know if you hit it because nothing happens half the time.  I hit stuff with my starting dagger and only like 1 in every 12 hits actually hit.   Then I upgraded to a sword which helped. 

In Oblivion you might not do a lot of damage, but if you hit something you hit it."

I asked how much more fun Obilvion is than Morrowind.

"About... 6"

Lol, 6 times more fun than Morrowind? I just reinstalled Morrowind and am going to play through it again. I would definitely give the newer Oblivion and Skyrim a go, though.
