Judging classics for its graphics. Very "hardcore gamer". Happy holidays!

Thank you for the news, I'm an old fan of Oblivion and Skyrim, but never played Morrowind, so I'm looking forward the chance to play it, for the first time in my life.

On the other hand, it's not necessarily so difficult to go back to 10+ years old games. While waiting for GTA V coming to PC, I play now both GTA San Andreas (2004) and GTA IV (2008), and to my surprise, I enjoy the ancient San Andreas much better. It can't even handle the mouse properly, the poor thing, and houses in-game look like photo-textured prim box houses in SL in 2007, but nevertheless, the game content, the skill system, the side quests, the reward system, even the vehicle physics are all better than GTA IV. So 10 years old games can still be appreciated (and they are necessary for realizing what actual new games are lacking).
