No, really. I mean – you can’t deny Morrowind’s place in CRPG history, but. Nobody really likes Skyrim fanboys who next to drool on their Dovah collectible figurines.
But Morrowind fanboys are no better.
I mean… TES did not start with Morrowind. It didn’t end with it, either. Neither did CRPG history.
Whining constantly about how no other game could ever hope to compare with Morrowind is, well, rather immature.
No amount of pretentious claims like “the first two titles were generic fantasy” (generally uttered by someone who never played them) will fix that attitude.
I’m younger than some of those fanboys (actual gender identity varies). But I’m old enough to remember how Morrowind was considered to be ‘BethSoft selling out’.
It – to be precise, the community reaction to it – set the tone, that’s for sure.
