    I couldn't play Morrowind on a console system. You don't get the expansion packs, you can't customize your graphics settings or resolution, and as you said, the controls are just atrocious. The idea behind Morrowind is similar to that of Grand Theft Auto or Animal Crossing: it's a sandbox game.

    There are literally thousands of things to do, and you're pretty much free to do them all in any order unless you choose to follow the main story (which is also good). If you want some structure I recommend joining a guild or talking to Caius Cosades in Balmora. He'll have some jobs for you.

    I guess it's because we're all nerds here

    I was never really good at sports games but I've always liked the create a team and player thing. But since I was so bad at them I would always have to simulate a game. Gets quite boring after a while.

    Already did all that.

    You are right though the PC edition was reviewed as being much better than the Xbox edition. You only get one expansion on the Xbox and that's if you buy the "Game of the Year Edition". It's also not very good when the Xbox crashes. Word of advice :Save often

    Hey did you play Baldur's Gate on the Dreamcast or PC? I'm kinda curious if anyone has played it on the Dreamcast.
    sorry, i played it on the PC. i got a DVD of it from a friend. i belive it might have been part of a gift set with a piece of hardware. good game though...
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    Strategy. The best RTS game that I have ever played would have to AoE2, and then Rise of Nations.

    But I was quite impressed by Battle for Wesnoth, I think its an amazing game. And then I found another one called Battle of Survival. It's similar to Red Alert, really good game.
    Linux could do with some more Strategy games though.

    linux could do with more games full stop! admittedly there are quality titles released instead of the crap that windows users get foisted on them. isn't AoE published my M$? i know the first one is, so good luck trying to get a linux port of that lol.

    simulation, although they can be some of the most difficult games out there.
    Linux is for those who want to know why their computer works.

    I picked up a copy of SimCity classic for $2.99 a few weeks ago. The graphics aren't as pretty as SimCity 3000, but it so simple and addictive.

    On a somewhat related note, I'm checking out a SimCity clone I found on HappyPenguin.org called "LinCity-ng". It has promise.
