Dunno, i found it had a story. :) Although, typically, i play such a game for the atmosphere, gameplay, game world, and the quests. You know, if you do all the side quests, you can easily forget about the main story completely... 

Aaaaaaaaaaand maybe this works for Skyrim, but not for a DX title.

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

You're right. Funnily, i didn't even perceive MD's story as thin, or hardly existant. But, i'll be cautious, because, sometimes your perception can really trick you.

I don't know if that was sarcasm but The Elder Scrolls main stories were very superficial. And then compare it to what Daggerfall had. A couple of endings and an interesting plot intrigue. It was all text. But goddammit that script had more consideration than the Hollywood Oblivion or Skyrim. Can't say about Morrowind though because I missed it.


 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

It wasn't sarcasm, i really mean it. Sometimes, when you have a positive general impression of a game, it can make you think that certain aspects of the game were great, even though they may not have been. Even though i still think MD's story wasn't half bad.
