Diablo is the best game to relax after a bad day at work etc you chop to pieces a few monsters ( instead of your boss :P )

When talking about RPGs no game can beat the Baldurs Gate series. It's simply the best RPG ever.

Planescape: Torment is the runner up.

Diablo 1&2 is also great, more hack'n'slash.

IWD 1&2 is good, a bit too linear.

The Elder Scrolls series really becomes boring after 1 hour of play because you realize the huge world is not huge but a series of 5 repeating quests and locations. And the fight is very bad.

For me, Planescape: Torment and the fallout series are the best cRPG, directly followed by Baldur's Gate 1+2.

I loved morrowind. It's a singleplayer mmorpg . It had it's flaws but I like the overall design of the landscapes and the city of vivec. Though vivec was pretty ..empty for a capital city. I installed a mod which added like 100 extra npc's around so it looked more alive. Worked for me.

I also loved the various armors around...let me see If I can find a pic of my outfit

Yeah, Morrowind rules. I love the way you can work your way to the very top of any of the game's guilds, complete the story, or just explore the world in your own time.

In that case Gothic 1 and 2 is better than Morrowind, it's world is little smaller, but never repeating like Morrowind and it is somewhat more attractive game.

Well, I got both Gothics and Morrowind at the same time, but I just threw a glance at Gothic 1 to see how it is, and then I decided to play Morrowind through. I played it for approx. 2 hours, then I unistalled it from my pc and decided to give Gothic a chance instead. I did never regret it and I did never want to play Morrowind again.
Well, I know that different people always like different kinds of games, but if you didn't play Gothic 1 and 2 yet, try it out, I'm sure you would understand the difference between it and Morrowind.

I have played Gothic I and II
In terms of graphics gothic is not nearly as good as morrowind
and in terms of storyline, while both aren't all that great, Morrowind is better (mostly because the story isn't straighforward and often the badguy is the badguy because he is MORE evil, and even that is open to speculation)
However Gothic is better in terms of realism, almost every character in the game is unique and had his/her schedual, while morrowind (without the mods) is quite static.

However morrowind does have the editor, which (while not a part of the game) cannot be disregarded.
Thanks to the editor we now have mods that add anything from smoother, realistic, bodies and heads, to new textures and cities and entire new continents.
And even entire new continents: http://wizards-islands.com/ is a mod soon to be released which adds a whole new continent with new spells, armors, buildings, monsters etc...
and then there is Tamriel Rebuilt, the goal of the team is to create the entire area of Arena again, but this time in detail (not generated areas)
http://www.tamriel-rebuilt.org/
So far onloy the entire province of Morrowind (that is mainland Morrowind)
and a part of Skyrim is complete, but the level of detail in the areas is amazing.


Anyway, since you claim you only played it for 2 hours youa ren't really in a position to judge it...

Maybe I missed it, but how come noone mentioned Daggerfall?
IMHO, that's a great game...Though I only saw few pictures of Arena, Daggerfall seems MUCH better. After all, it IS like Arena 2, right?
