For tykes weaned on the clean, orderly fantasy world depicted in Lord of the Rings (and its many immitators), The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was a bit of a shock to the system. After all, it was really, really weird. Like, downright bizarre in some places. We'll never forget the first time we rode around the countryside in a giant bug – mostly because no amount of therapy is enough. And that's only the tip of the iceberg. There was, however, a certain appeal to it, and Bethesda freely admits that Oblivion lacked that exotic flavor.
