Default An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire

IMO Bethesda should get Arkane Studios to do the combat in their games and then create something akin to Morrowind again (where your choices actually have long-term consequences). I will give Morrowind several things:

+The world felt dangerous.
+It felt very old school which I loved.
+The quest-lines were huge and complex.

I can imagine the next TES game being even more watered down to appeal to the casual RPG fanbase. It's getting tiring now seeing all this and the worst part is that because Skyrim has a big fan-base (even when you see lots of hate for it) and sold well, other RPG developers are using it as their basis for creating their games.

I hear a few developers using Witcher and Dark Souls as their basis which is what I prefer. RPG's can be both modern and have a level of complexity to them. When you achieve something yourself without having your hand held, then the achievement is all the more worth-while.

I agree an epic game, but at the same time

- most "Dungeons" were nothing more than small earth holes (Daggerfall had real Dungeons)
- combat was dumbed down
- balancing (leveling and trading) was not good (I was invincible after level 14 or so and had a huge amount of money)

Many things are fixed through modders nowadays -> I recommend: Morrowind complete overhaul

Isn`t Morrowind complete overhaul just a set of cosmetic mods that have nothing to do with above mentioned problems?

MGSO 2.0 from KingPix overhauls gameplay, too. 1.0 was gfx only.

Actually I used 3.0 a while ago. This Morrowind Overhaul Game Experience mod you are talking about has not been released yet as far as I know
