The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind® Game of the Year Edition includes Morrowind plus all of the content from the Bloodmoon and Tribunal expansions. The original Mod Construction Set is not included in this package.
An epic, open-ended single-player RPG, Morrowind allows you to create and play any kind of character imaginable.

In Tribunal, you journey to the capital city of Morrowind, called Mournhold, to meet the other two god-kings of Morrowind, Almalexia and Sotha Sil. Your journey will lead you to the Clockwork City of Sotha Sil and massive, epic-sized dungeons, where strange and deadly creatures await you, including goblins, lich lords, and the mysterious Fabricants.
Bloodmoon takes you to the frozen Island of Solstheim where you'll experience snow, blizzards, and new creatures, including frost trolls, ice minions, and wolves... just to name a few.

I played Oblivion and Skyrim before trying this game and the amount of content crammed into Morrowind astounded me. None of the later main Elder Scroll titles had THIS amount of creatures and weapons! The native beings range from simple larvae like worms to ravenous "Guar", a two legged beast with a nasty bite. Also, the world is quite hostile, in which just one wrong turn can lead to a prompt death. In other words, the enemies never level up with the player character and they are tough to fight at lower levels. This forces anyone to be cautious and makes adventure far more dangerous. By today's standards, the game hasn't aged all that well though. Yes, the graphics are ancient, being from 2002 mostly, thus Skyrim fans may avoid Morrowind. If that doesn't do it, then the Dice Roll combat system will. Every newcomer will struggle upon realizing the first 15 strikes won't kill an enemy. Then comes in the infamous Cliffracers. They are hated by everyone, with a good reason as they are hard to kill and so many of them attack players at once. I tried to run from them by going into a dungeon but a vampire almost killed me so I fled back to the outside and well, the same Cliffracers were waiting outside and got me. You gotta love how easy Morrowind is right? Still, Morrowind deserves to played once because the game actually requires strategic thinking and planning to get the rewards. Those that master the brutal environment of Morrowind are to be worshiped. I give TeS: Morrowind an A for remaining as an indisputable example of an RPG game in the 21st century that its sequels lack.

I do not know how many hours I put into just the base game alone not including the expansions, but it must be a huge amount. At first I played on Xbox but it is even better on PC IMO. With just the base game you will be very happy and with the expansions it is even better. Admittedly seeing as how I first played this game more than 10 years ago that might affect my view of it, but I still enjoy playing Morrowind. Although as others have said, don't go in expecting it to be just like Skyrim, it is quite different. I have found with Elder Scrolls games that you enjoy them more when you don't spend too much time comparing them.

I played this game back when Oblivion was announced as a way to get introduced into the Elder Scrolls series in preparation and fell in love with the series right away. Great story, amazing open world, diverse dialogue options, and plenty of quests to keep you busy for days on end. Graphics are a bit dated as of now of course, but for it's time, it was amazing, and even now, most other things hold up in my opinion. If you're a fan of RPGs, I'd highly recommend this game.

Morrowind is a magnificent game and the standard I hole the rest of the series to. The world is vast and full of interesting creatures, people, and foliage. The story is engaging, and the combat is somehow better than Oblivion, and definitely more varied. The side quests are, for the most part, fun and interesting, and the characters you meet are interesting with their own stories, and you can play for 1,000 hours and not do everything. I'd recommend downloading the Morrowind Overhaul if you buy it, as the graphics are pretty dated. Otherwise, amazing game.

The Elder Scrolls 3 : Morrowind. What a game ! Like usual in the series, you start the game as a prisoner. This time, you’ve been sent to the island of Vvardenfell, homeland of the dark elves Dunmers and heart of the province of Morrowind, and have been freed by the imperial soldiers. Sure you have a mission, but like in any other The Elder Scrolls game, you are free do to do as you pleased. Vvardenfell is a strange place to explore with exotic views and dangerous beats. There are a lot of factions here : guilds, noble houses and more... The story, inspired by Frank Herbert’s Dune, is really good. The soundtrack is amazing too. Gameplay-wise, there are tons of possibilities. The game’s system is pretty deep and interesting. Unfortunately, it hasn’t aged well. The combats might feel a bit clunky. Same thing for the stealth mechanic. The visuals can improved via mods, however. This is the Game of the Year Edition so the extensions Bloodmoon and Tribunal are included, adding hours of content to a very massive game. Morrowind is a classic, almost a legend among RPGs. If you love Skyrim, you should try this one while being prepared for the dated gameplay.
