The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (PC, Xbox/2002) Guessed by Scoobes
Morrowind represents a watershed moment in my gaming life. Before I played this masterpiece I had consumed mostly action games: platformers, shooters, action-adventure, fighters, etc. But things changed after Morrowind. I fell in love with the RPG genre. The absolute freedom of the game captivated me. One could postpone the main storyline indefinitely to explore the vast world inside the game, collect its treasures and meet its strange denizens. With a rich mythology, an outstanding amount of content, and incredible attention to detail, Morrowind had it all. For me, it's the best in the series, and one of the better RPGs ever made.
