It has been 20 years since Morrowind released on Xbox and PC, and in the years since its release it has continued on as one of the most important open world RPGs ever made.

For Xbox in particular, it was the first game of its kind released for the platform. The openness of the world and endless possibilities in role playing Morrowind presented were unprecedented and thought impossible on a console.
The creator of the game, Bethesda Game Studios, would become an important part of Xbox’s history. Morrowind would remain an Xbox exclusive and defined the platform as the place to play western RPGs.
Fast forward 20 years with Bethesda Game Studios now under the Xbox umbrella, they are set to release what promises to be another genre defining game in Starfield. History it seems is set to repeat itself as Xbox looks to become the defining platform for RPGs yet again.
