Skyrim is an amazing game, but does it compare to Morrowind and Oblivion? Skyrim is a definate improvement from Oblivion although I find there are certain restrictions. Imporvement visually is obvious, gamer's have more ability to create their own perfect character, modify and alter that character and explore wider variety's of appearance. And although Skyrim has added more to gameplay, skills and leveling it has also taken away the aspect of a fun RPG where leveling increases skill to the point of imunity. Hours and hours of gameplay are needed to achieve the highest skill levels in Skyrim, although in Oblivion and Morrowind your character could concentrate on the one attribute they wished to level.
Morrowind is still, in my opinoin, the highest point Bethesda has reached. The graphics, controls, slow motion kills and vast variety in weaponry and armour in Skyrim is amazing, but the world itself is limited. Same environments are encounted all over the map due to the single race of the Nord story restriction in the game. Yes, Skyrim is based around the Nords as a race (200 years comparison from Oblivion), but we obviously see other races as we first start the game.
The incorperation of environments that suited races in Morrowind created a sence of amazement and a new world to explore. An example of this is Sadrith Mora, in Morrowind (as seen in the jpg above). The restriction of the Nord's has, for me, added boredum to the game. Skyrim is incredible and an acievement for Bethesda. But my love still lies with the wonder and tranquility found in Morrowind.
This is entirely my own opinion of the game, although I would like to know the abilitys and restriction's other's feel Skyrim has offered us.
