Man I really love Morrowind.
I remember when I was a scrub and didn't like it.
I couldn't hit anything. My armor was weak. I was so slow with walking. An unclothed guy with an axe could destroy me and my armor. Eventually I gave up because I was so weak and couldn't do it anymore. The game was too hard for me. What's the point of playing a game if you can't find any joy in it?
But Morrowind wouldn't leave my mind. The thought of "maybe I will get better" kept coming to me while I distracted myself with the beautiful game of Oblivion. But I was scared that I would just stop enjoying the game. Eventually I did return. I decided to work with the game.
Oh boy was that difficult. Often times my armor was really goofy, mismatched, and my skills were too low. I wasn't up to speed with how the game worked. CLIFFRACERS kept trying to murder me whenever I traveled. Yet, there was a small sense of progression.
That progression grew. My character became more powerful. I started to earn titles, learning of my character's destiny to become the savior of Morrowind. I could finally start hitting things. I was walking faster. I wouldn't die so easily.
I did more quests. I proved myself to the Ashlanders that I was the true Nerevarine. Even the Daedric Prince Azura placed faith in my character to destroy the Blight and restore Morrowind to it's former glory. I continued. I scavenged for new items, weapons, and armor while facing new challenges and truly exploring the beauty of Morrowind.
(I changed my character's hair because I didn't like the last hairstyle. Sorry, I won't do that again.)
I am getting closer to destiny. Already the Hortator of the three main houses of Morrowind, my character will now prove herself as the Nerevarine and go onto vanquishing the evil of Dagoth Ur!
So yeah, I love Morrowind. It takes a while to truly start enjoying, but the game is REALLY rewarding. I feel like I earned this stuff. All my trials and toils in this game have grown on me so that I can't help but go back and play MORE Morrowind, because I love that sense of earning. I love working for reward.
