Is it just me or the number of Npcs in each new game is getting smaller and smaller. For Example

in Daggerfall there was 700,000 npcs to interact with and 15,000 towns,

Morrowind Had 3000 npcs (counting guards)

Oblivion had

900 npcs

Skyrim had

400-500 npcs

and some of the major cities even smaller population

solitude had 70 npcs while the imperial city had 120, while vivic had +400

I just hope that in future games they add more npcs to make the game world seem more alive dont get me wrong i loved skyrim, its just that the MAJOR CITIES seemed like walled villages too me, and the villages seemed to be more like hamlets.'

But what do you all think have you noticed that the population of each game is getting smaller and smaller
