Elder Scrolls Teasers

A teaser image on The Elder Scrolls Website has folks abuzz over the possibility that the announcement of a fourth installment in the popular Elder Scrolls series (rumored to be titled "Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion") is imminent. Supporting such thinking is a section on their newly reopened forums (thanks Jaded-Gamer) which includes a section for The Next Elder Scrolls Discussion.

This is something I could go on hours about, but I'll keep my opinion brief. Many of us have yet to find a good 1st-person open-ended non-linear off-line (with LAN or on-line as an added option) RPG that lets us fight things we're all familiar with, like dragons, mermaids, various undead, and giants, in a setting with elves, dwarves, humans, etc., in a huge world of wildernesses, oceans, and recognizeable wildlife (I could excuse some liberty on wildlife, as long as there are bears, crocodiles, wild cats, etc.), and quests ranging from minor errands to epic trials worthy of the greatest heroes. Everquest is the closest I've found, but you have to pay to play online (unless you're playing with EQEmu, which still has a rrrrrrreally long way to go). Everything about Morrowind is lonely, because of its long stretches of sandy, rocky, swampy, and otherwise dreary terrain, and few green areas to make up for it, no real companionship A.I. by any of the NPCs (even with the best companion mods, they seem more like robots than companions), no multiplayer, and a generally alien, uninviting feeling throughout. I'm poor, financially speaking, but I would jump hurdles to dish out $200 or more for such a game. I want it so bad(ly), and every 3D game in recent years has massively disappointed me. I'm a fan of Morrowind only because it's the closest thing to what I ask for (I don't ask too much?) and it doesn't even come close!!!! P.S. Rather than giant ugly-@$$ fleas for transportation, why not an airship? Or a horse? Or a dragon? Or just stick with boats and walk inland. No, we must have fleas because this is Morrowind. Oh yes, and giant mushrooms where trees or giant ferns or anything else should be instead, because we don't want people wandering into something they're familiar with (at some point there I succumbed to sarcasm; I'll let you guess where).
