Well I don't know about Morrowind, but Baldur's Gate has one of the shittiest endings I've ever seen in a game.

Please don't call it that. It's a tenuously connected spin-off to a great game, Dark Alliance would suffice.

Morrowind was one of those deals where you really have to play it without expectations, along with a sense of wonder. Now that Oblivion has came out and the face of gaming has changed its hard to appreciate it normally. It's a great game, but definitely more niche these days.

Yeah, I'd imagine if you've already played Oblivion then Morrowind would be nearly impossible to enjoy.

That happened to me and I can't say how sad I was because a friend of mine kept telling me to play Morrowind back in the days as we both were RPG fans and I kept pushing it away until I played Oblivion. When I decided to give it a go, I simply couldn't. It was too ugly and lifeless.

Well, lesson learned. When a friend recommends you an older game, play it before the newer one is released.

Or mod Morrowind to the point where it basically plays like Oblivion anyway. :P

They didn't even bother trying to make an ending, they just cut it off in the middle of the story and said "BUY THE SEQUEL!"

Awful, awful ending.

That is hilariously awful. :)

I'd quote Mel Brooks ("Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die."), except that I played it too.

So I'll just say that "buy the sequel" is one of the all-time worst endings around, but it's been long enough since I played it that it makes me laugh now.

Fair enough.

I just went into the game completely spoiler-free. Had I known what the ending was, I likely wouldn't have picked it up.
