Oblivion ganderings at 1Up

1Up has a preview of TES4: Oblivion. There's really not much new and it's basically a fluff piece from what I read of it, so here's a clip:

The PC market doesn't see many good single-player RPGs these days. Diablo-style action-RPG hybrids continue to gain in popularity, and the mainstream acceptance of massively multiplayer online games has ensured you'll never have to play alone again. Meanwhile, the Baldur's Gates and Elder Scrolls of the world remain fond but increasingly distant memories. Fortunately, a few publishers still understand the unique and immersive appeal that traditional RPGs provide. First-person RPG The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, which came out in 2002, is undoubtedly the best recent example of what can be done with the genre, and developer Bethesda Softworks is well aware of that, as executive producer Todd Howard and his team have dedicated the last three years to the series' next epic chapter: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.​
Think he would have said Elder Scrolls of the world if it weren't for Morrowind? And it's a particularly stupid thing to mention in a preview for the fourth game of the series.
