The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Summary
As early as Skyrim launched on PC, fans took it upon themselves to use the game's fancy engine magic to craft the RPG they really wanted - a prettier looking version of its prequels Oblivion and Morrowind.
The team behind ambitious-to- mod Skywind has been reaching out to its fan community in order to find voice actors to read the huge amount of NPC dialogue in the game, and it's shown off some of the results in a recent
Judging by some brief sample videos like the one embedded below, it's some very impressive work. I've played dozens of retail games with way worse voice acting than this.

Videos like this are a bit of a nostalgia rush for me - look, there's the Red Mountain, there's Azura's Coast, oh god there's one of those hideous parastic worms. I'd almost forgotten just how alien and strange the world of Morrowind is. I'd almost wish we'd head back there in the nextgame, but on second thought it's probably time for something new.
