                So you are well trained at being miserable. What were you being punished for? It must have been bad. At leadt tell me you modded the game . 1500 hours vanilla is inhumane.

                there was some modding back in the day. like pre-oblivion, when vanilla started to get too familiar. like all tes games though, vanilla with tweaks is always the best. mods stand out too much in general and its almost always obvious that youre interacting with something not from that reality.

                i cant play the game anymore though. ive been in every location, talked to every npc, and played every race/class combo several times over. im on indefinite hiatus until i die or TR is feature complete. whichever comes first.

                I don't blame you for hating TES after playing Morrowind that much. Maybe if you started with one of the good ones it would have turned out better. It was just a stroke of bad luck Morrowind being your forst TES game. Look on the bright side. It could have been worse and you started with Daggerfall.

        I didn't. I literally walked everywhere and planned out each of my quest goals throughout all of my travels until I burned out at the end.
        Walking everywhere definitely added to the experience, especially for me personally, but this game is clearly designed for you to teleport around the game world.

      Magic in Morrowind was broken because the game itself was broken. It came out in, what, 2003? They didn't know how to truly balance a game back then, leading to them adding shit that could absolutely butcher any sort of balance. Like giving yourself 800 points of merchantile with a single spell, selling all your shit to the mudcrab merchant then buying it back at 10 coins. Or whatever the absolute fuck alchemy was holy shit that was broken.
      Oblivion magic was also broken, but like the game itself, it was less broken than morrowind. You could still get absolutely insane shit, like dealing a trillion damage with spell stacking, or making potions that were almost as good as the ones in Morrowind, but generally the complete fucking brokeness of the game was toned down. If this is a good thing or not is debatable, but I think it's a lot more immerssive that stats are capped instead of being able to drink 50 sujamas and getting 4000 strength because effects stack like that for some reason.
      As for skyrim, they were going for magic being cool and having unique effects that you being able to game the system. You still can, obviously, enchanting and alchemy are still retardedly broken, but spellcasting itself is more about dofferent types of spells that all feel and act dofferent. You have laser beam, continuous spells, you have ward spells that actually form force shields in front of you, you have spells that create fire runes on the ground that explode like mines, you have spells with different charge times, you have spells that turn iron to gold for some reason. It makes magic into less of a min-max break the game thing and more into a this is fun I'll try it out thing. Which one you prefer is up to you I guess.
