indeed it is
I'm still in love with it
the mods are just excellent

but for all those who think morrowind has no story, I refer you to this page http://til.gamingsource.co.uk/mwbooks/
it contains all the books that appear in morrowind (some of them are just random stories... usually with a very dark ending) but there are a lot of them that talk about the political situation, religion, the conflict between the houses, some very cryptic religious texts (like sermon zero)
research texts about the Dwemer (the dwarven-like people that mysteriously dissappeared suddenly) and so on and so forth

I only played the first Diablo and LOVED it
Its funny since Diablo is mainly a dungeon-game while nowadays I dislike dungeon-games.
Diablo was one of the first games I ever played... too bad I borrowed it from somebody and had to give it back.
I've never played Diablo II

although i believe that Diablo is a great game ( both Diablo 1 and 2 ) i don't know if i would put them in the RPG category... in Pure RPG's there is at least a bit of interactivity with other people, you talk with others etc. Diablo is simple Hack-n'-Slash Not that this is a bad thing... after all, Hack n'Slash is the only element of RPG games that ComputerRPGs do better than Pen & paper RPGs. They are not as deep as real RPGs ( up until now at least - i can't know what will come next )

Well it wasnt communication really.... the villagers just "talked" to you, you could not reply to them. You always made the "quest-related" questions to them, with the main purpose to find another quest because the goal of the game was to find all the quests... anyway, this isn't the only example that shows that Diablo isn't a pure RPG - it doesn't have character creation ( although of course it has character advancement ). As i said above i dont believe that this things are bad elements of the game. Because of the nature of this game it should be fast paced and have simple playability. This is what makes Diablo great. It has that unique characteristic that made games historical since "Pac-man" Simple-but-fun-to-play.

Man, you'r missing all the fun.IMO diablo II is (far) more better than it's predecessor, in every aspect.Related to the "no interaction" feat, i think it's one of the features that made this game sooooooooo good.I mean you talk a little, and then you hack&slash your way through those monsters.
