    Can we agree that video games can only be considered cultural in a specialized world of stunted maturity and/or prolific boredom?

    Considering the vast percentage of the population that has grown up on video games, I think they have had a profound impact on our culture, our way of life.

    They're not just for adolescent geeks anymore.

    some games can now be considered art.

    baldurs gate or planescape torment can be likened to a medium to great novel.

    guild wars 2 graphics might be likened to good paintings

    just as chess or footbal(the real footbal, not the rugby kind that is the american footbal) has been likened to works of art so to can video games

    That's what most say, and I agree so far, except for one thing; it's so depressing! Oblivion had green fields to run and frolic in virtually (can't be getting any actual exercise now can we).

    I have Morrowind. Haven't found the time to really get into it.

    Spend most of my time playing golf on www.wgt.com

    Anyway, Deus Ex is the best PC game ever made.

    I loved Morrowind at the time (except for that bloody wood elf at the beginning) but Oblivion just looks so much nicer though less alien🙂

    Morrowind is a good game but it's a shame there is no limit to how many and how strong your intelligence potions can be that help you to make stronger intelligence potions that help you to make stronger intelligence potions that help you to...that help you to create baddass potions boosting all your other stats and allowing you fly everywhere and have endless supplies of money.

    You can?

    The flying - or levitating rather - is awesome, but I can see how it can get abused.

    Well I'm not going to play with those glitches. I set out to play Oblivion with glitches and it was really easy. My signature spell was called "Shape of the Hunter" - Summon Clannfear + Invisibility and a small heal. That spell could defeat any thing easily.

    This time I just want to pimpsmack everyone straight up.

    EDIT - The idea that Alchemy was overpowered never occurred to me. That is really funny! I didn't play an alchemist in either game.

    Enchant seems to be the skill I most easily abuse. Magic items are plentiful and customizable.
