Idk how I feel about Elder Scroll games. Oblivion was cool, but since Fallout 3 came out I kinda lost my desire. Also, I was given a copy of Morrowind and I can't even stand to play it. Idk if it's the 360 emulator or the game engine, but it runs like crap. Considering how Elder Scroll fans rave about Morrowind, I guess this kinda broke my spirit for the franchise. Random history tidbit. Morrowind's is gigantic, with 487,000 sq km. To put that into perspective, Oblivion is around 16 sq km. This was due to a terrain generation engine, a practice still seen in Oblivion and Fallout (which is why the layout of dungeons may be somewhat different, but many of them look very similar). However, this engine was so buggy that several main quest dungeons were impossible to complete. Bethesda got so fed up with patching the game that they enabled console commands so people could finish the game. No, this isn't important in the least.

Morrowind, like Oblivion, is twelve times better on the PC. One of the best (and largest) modding communities of all time. Much like its predecessors, I can't wait to play Skyrim. Such a fantastic series.

Here's to hoping that they've moved on from the aging Gamebryo engine, though. It's really starting to show its age, even on the PC with heavy modifications and feature-adds.

They did. There's been a lot of confusion about that, even GAF was saying it was Gamebryo in their OT. But it's 100% confirmed now, they're using something new.

Well, judging from the background of the twitter page, I'd say that it's inevitable at this point.

So... fuck yes.

As long as the graphics are improved, I'm happy. The thing that struck me most from the trailer was actually the music. Oblivion and Morrowind had some great tracks. This one sounds like it will as well.

Jeremy Soule is one of my favorite vidya composers, right up there with Marty. In addition to the Elder Scrolls series, he's done Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander, CoH, and KOTOR, all of those being some of my all-time favorite games.

All I want is confirmation that Gamebryo is dead and gone forever.

It's Bethesda. If it actually releases on time, I'll give you a cookie.

Bethesda runs on Valve time. It's never actually coming out, that's just what they want you to believe.
