Morrowind or Oblivion?

    Ive been playing Oblivion a LOT and I LOVE it. However, I put the guts of 800 hours into Morrowind along with the two expansions.
    For those of you who have played both, which do you genuinely prefer and why?

    Well, I spent alot of time in Morrowind initially and didn't get very far. I was just exploring the world for the most part. I don't think I even got past level 3 tbh. Then I spotted it in gamestop with both expansions on the xbox for a tenner. So I got it. I can play my xbox in bed so I figured I'd be able to invest a little time in it every night instead of having mamoth health-threatening sesions at the weekends. Plus there were other things to play and do (Life, for example...). I have about 10 hours on the xbox version clocked now, and that's mostly cos I fell asleep one night. But I did my character properly from the star and levelled up pretty quickly. I'm level 6 in it I think.

    Alot of people are giving out about the levelling system in Oblivion where everyone else levels with you. I prefered the Morrowind way where, if you could get away with it, you could steal/make-a-run-for some serious kit even at low levels. I spawned myself some glass armour in Oblivion just to see it cos it was so cool in Morrowind. I still found I was getting my ass kicked by scamps. In Morrowind I was almost invincible. So I reckon even though I had it, I wasn't MEANT to have it so it was p**s poor. Could be completely qrong but I dunno.....

    Tangent there, but to get back to your question: Oblivion. Definately. As an imersive world its fantastic. I mean, of course there are problems with it. But hey, you can sit on stools, fcs! Brilliant. I took a trip up north to the border when I got my first horse and went hunting deer in the snow. Because you can.
