In my opinion Bethesda does just fine in the graphics department, Daggerfall wasn't even upto par in the graphics realm when it was released and it was still a kick butt game.
True... I'm waiting for Oblivion 'cause I played Arena, Daggerfall and Morrowind.
Bethesda never proof his self in graphics. Morrowind was in some way eye-candy, but it was almost 99% 'CPU based graphics' (Morrowind worked same on gf256, gf2, 9700). Still waiting for Oblivion
