Tried playing Morrowind and it's even worse than I remember. Somehow I keep forgetting about the overzealous collision detection, the bad map geometry that that's really easy to get stuck on, how short the jumps are, the slow movement speed, the hugeness of all the areas in the game which really compounds the slow movement speed... just the act of moving in the game is deeply unpleasant. I can't think of any other games I've managed to get stuck on the map object so frequently.
How many hours did I spend on this when I was younger?
I would say the geometry issue is more of a Bethesda thing than a purely Morrowind one, although it does suffer a lot from from it. I didn't really have those issues myself. My problems were more easily solved with the aid of mods. Things such as the horrible economy system that plagues every elder scrolls and delaying the Dark Brotherhood attack. I delay it more to prevent me getting some of the best armour in the first town rather than for difficulty reasons though. Despite it's flaws I still love the game though.
Playing along with my unarmoured, unarmed healer in Morrowind. After hitting a decent hand to hand level, fighting lost its tediousness and became quite fun. A lot more strategy is needed than usual. Hand to Hand is not as powerful so far as it was in Skyrim but it seems more useful than it was in Oblivion at least. I was surprised at how strong it was in the early game of Skyrim. It does go from more powerful than most other early game weapons to falling behind mid to late level weapons though.
Finished Fallout 3. I thought the ending was pretty lame. The pacing seemed really off after the G.E.C.K quest.
