PC games like Morrowind....
What games would people recommend that are very much like Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind or Thief- first-person, free-range RPGs? What my friend likes most about Morrowind is the feel of being in a totally different world, with different religions, and different buildings, etc. When she plays a game, she wants to feel like she's in a totally different world and living another life. That's what she likes about Morrowind. If she wants to be evil- she can. If she wants to be a pilgrim- she can. She loves Morrowind's attention to detail and graphics as far as the sky & the rain, as well as the audio effects. However, she hates the senseless repetition of the quests, the programmed responses of the other characters, even when they are written to despise her character, and being able to run forever without having to eat or sleep. She wants to be in a totally different world but still with a semblance of realism to it. She's not talking about games like Fable, which while still a RPG that you can choose your own affinity in, the graphics are unrealistic and seem more cartoonish. She especially likes the Thief series because they are first-person games that have a really cohesive storyline and there is a lot of interaction and activities within the levels. She likes the hiding and the sneaking instead of all the out and out fighting.
How do the other Elder Scrolls games compare? We've heard Oblivion is really good but because we've been told there is a lot more action in it, she's not sure she's interested in it because she likes the freedom of Morrowind.
