Their previous game, Morrowind, was so beautiful when it was released 4 years ago, that the first steps outside of the village in the beginning gave an overwhelming sense of freedom.
I remember one of the very first things I did the first time I played was so sit on a rock and wait for the sun to set on the horizon.
With all its shortcomings (no game is perfect), Morrowind delivered a world so rich in adventures that it is maybe the only game I know of that makes me feel as 'going home' when I start it up.
In anticipation of the new chapter, I came across several sites literally bursting with new content for Morrowind. And after a few weeks of downloads and fine tuning, I settled down on enough expansions to make Morrowind feel like a completely new game.
These changes are so extensive that I decided to give up my first (and only character in the game so far) and start all over again, from the beginning, which gives me a chance to explore the game from a fresh perspective.
I opened up this site to comment on the richness and depth of both games and their extensions
