* NewbieBoom: The six-year gap between ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'' and ''Morrowind'' meant that ''Morrowind'' was the first game in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series for many fans. ''Morrowind'' was both a critical and commercial success, establishing the fanbase that would go on to make ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' even bigger hits.
