As some of you might know I was supposed to study in Korea (Seoul, SKKU) this semester but since my business was taking off I decided to stay in the Netherlands and follow as much next-year classes this year as possible. I will study in Korea around March 2017 so basically I just switched everything around meaning I had to do my minor this year. Since the second semester just started I’m currently following the second semester of the Game Studies minor and will follow the first semester this september. Luckily my professor told me this won’t be a problem since the topics discussed in both semesters are unrelated. However…. since I joined so late I did miss the announcement about the homework the other students received when they finished the first semester…. we had to play Morrowind for about 100+ hours, Skyrim for 50+ and Oblivion for 30+ before starting this semester, although focussing on Morrowind would be fine as well…. hahah it seemed like I had some catching up to do 😀 !! But I never expected to fall in love with this game (Morrowind) sooooo much.
Although it came out in 2002, the graphics are outdated (to say the least) and the fighting is really annoying, the complex storyline makes it all worthwhile. And can you imagine playing this awesome game, doing your homework (which is reading analysis about this game and other game topics) and then coming to class only to talk more about this game!? This is an absolute dream come true and since my professor is the biggest Elder Scrolls fan I have EVER met the classes are filled with her passionate talk about the Elder Scrolls and Game Studies. I have played for about 13 hours now (If I would have more spare time it would have been 50+ already) and although the game was a bit to much to handle for me at first (a lot of story and background information with 100+ new names and books filled with riddles) I absolutely fell in love with it from the moment I learned about the dragon break (more about that later). I have to admit I spend more hours reading the Morrowind books on the wiki than actually playing the game, hahah.
I will be writing about my Morrowind adventures (big spoiler alert) and share screenshots of the amazing and wicked design. Although I did add mod pack to make everything a bit more…. I guess pretty?? new?? updated?? But I can post pictures both with and without the mod.
