I may have spent an ungodly number of hours wandering around Skyrim, but I still miss Morrowind, the setting of the third game in Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series. The swamp-covered, volcano-tormented realm of the dark elves just had so much character; it was an endlessly interesting place to go questing. (The soundtrack really was the best, too.)

Morrowind's graphics can look a bit dated by modern standards, but thanks to a dedicated modding community, Morrowind regularly gets a very intense graphical overhaul. The version 3.0 overhaul, seen in all its resplendent glory in the trailer above, is now available for download.


Be warned, though: This isn't some easy as pie Steam Workshop mod—it's a very involved process. Fortunately, the people behind the mod have also uploaded this walkthrough for how to install all the files needed to make it run properly:

I have been meaning to go back to Morrowind, and when I have a moment I'm going to give this a shot. I also want to see the version of the game that's been modded into Skyrim. Then again, I kind of just want to replay the actual game Morrowind; better graphics are just a bonus.
