Nice. My steamgamesales feed didn't catch this. Too bad I can't just get the F3 DLC for %50 off.

Saw this earlier and bought Morrowind. The game of the year edition of Fallout 3 for $25 is a crazy awesome deal.

So tempted to get fallout 3 again for the mods, the fact that I want to play using a Chinese uniform from Anchorage and a sword is also enticing.

Why is it so tempting to re-purchase things I already own when it goes on sale on Steam?

Is oblivion still the same? Meaning are the load screens still a minute each?

Nice, I guess now I have no excuse not to buy my first Bethesda game.

Who wants to take bets as to whether Vinnie buys all of these?

Huh?  That would be determined by your hardware, not the game.  If you have some POS machine you had back when it came out then, yes it will be a slow load.

Yeah, I've never known Oblivion to load that long.

Sorry, I should have specified that I played Oblivion on the 360 before. So from your responses, I am guessing it handles better on PC?

I had Oblivian for 360 as well. The load times were a little frequent, but none of them were more than 10 to 20 seconds.. Maybe you should have cleared your cache or something.

On a nice PC, Oblivion load times are instant to nearly instant.

Are there any improvements to the Steam version of Morrowind? I already own it on CD-ROM, but would gladly snatch it up again so its disc free.

If you already have FO3, does the GOTY edition install into the same directory?

Says here Fallout 3 is $25 not $30, but that's still too much to warrant a rebuy.
 
I had / have really long load times on the 360 version of Oblivion and in my experience it won't even require a high end PC to have better load times.  My old PC loaded areas much quicker but the in-game performance was much worse.

I could go for that GOTY Fallout 3. I have been meaning to get back into it at some point and since I don't have any of the DLC this could be a good excuse to revisit it.

Fallout 3 is very tempting. If the sale lasts throughout the weekend, I'll probably end up buying it.
