The lights are on
Before there were dragons terrorizing Skyrim, before the gates of Oblivion opened in Cyrodil, before adventurers braved the insanity of The Shivering Isle, there was a game called Morrowind.
Join Andrew Reiner, Tim Turi, Ben Reeves, and Dan Ryckert as we get lost in the first room of Morrowind, and then take an epic journey through red fog. Be sure to stick around for the roulette to see a game that has aged surprisingly well compared to our dear Elder Scrolls III.

Okay, so I may be a little late to this party, but I've gotta say, Call of Cthulhu is definitely worth your time. I played that game recently, and it was great. There are definitely a few missteps and some weird pacing issues, but for every frustrating puzzle or confusing segment, there's an unforgettable sequence. One of them was taken straight from the Shadow over Innsmouth, and it's just as tense as it was in the short story, if not more so. The combat is serviceable, mostly gunplay and stealth, but the best parts come from the chase sequences, the atmosphere, and the more well-designed puzzles. This doesn't quite bring Lovecraft to life as well as Eternal Darkness, but given the recent issues at Silicon Knights, I think it's as close as we can get.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely. Would I want to see a Super Replay of it? Well...considering how many times I got completely stuck and had to rely on an FAQ, it might not be the most compelling candidate. Judging by the trouble you guys have had with Overblood 2, this could take forever in Super Replay form. Some of the "boss fights" still give me nightmares. Then again, that's probably just the Great Old Ones talking.
should have replayed the pc version
Call of Cthulhu looked interesting. Morrowind looked horrendous by today's standards.
First order of business: Drop your pants and run. This was classic, funny replay, great team on this one. And Call of Cthulhu looked pretty cool, I'd say super-replay material.
i love replay but i must say this one sucked real bad. to listen to a grown man scream like a girl at a video game was just akward. this was one of my favorite games i wish they had someone who knew how to play games and not just write about them play. i love gi but this sucked ass
Due to how Morrowind is designed it is one of the greatest games made, but also one of the least interesting to watch for just half an hour.
This game needs commitment and a little investment, but once you put in the time you will be rewarded more than in any other game.
Morrowind still trumps most, if not all RPG's in several areas; music, atmosphere, immersion, content and lore for example. Granted the animations are bad and the combat worse, look past the first hour, get hooked and fall in love.
I remember that game, a really great one. Nice to see a replay of it
I always thought the GI staff said Dan sucked at games in jest... after watching this, I can't help but really think he's just awful.
the ELDER SCROLLS!
