oblivion and morrowind are some of the best games i have ever played. :) i loved the amount of guilds you could be a part of in morrowind and ithe amount of quests and creatures you could face and the alchemy ingrediants you could harvest ect ect. and in oblivion i loved the better details the many small little easter eggs and gliches that are easy to exploit and the better graphics and look and feel of the battles just makes it a great game. :D
i do have to say that both games have only one fault each. morrowinds sword strikes quite frankly look stupid and in the begining its like mud crabs are mini bosses in their difficulty to even hit let alone do damage.
as for oblivion its just short in comparison. oblivion had something like 80000 individual set dungeons and side quests where oblivion only really took me a week to master every weapon and every guild in the game with the shivering isle and knights of the nine quests.

Yeah I liked how Oblivion had better details in the gameplay than Morrowind. It may have been a generic medieval fantasy setting but the fighting animations looked very cool and I liked how objects in the game moved around realistically. Plus the generic medieval-ness wasn't so bad to me, I like medieval settings and it was fun to pretend that I lived in a world like that. :)

One thing that I didn't like was that the really cool monsters and creatures didn't appear until after your character levels up a lot. It's kind of boring having to fight the same monsters over and over again such as the rats, imps, and wolves. So every time I start a game I try to max out all my skills as much as possible just to see everything that the game has to offer.

lol i disagree with that. if you want you can easily find a ton of enemies to fight besides imps and wolves and ect. you just have to look for them. plus being a red guard helps since then you can kinda short cut leveling up to an extent. XD

i like oblivion more than skyrim, cyrodiil is my favourite province of them all, in the 1st elder scrolls it only had the imperial city but in oblivion its got tons of great things, the character models look cheery and i love combat and magic and i can make myself bedrolls with a chest on top of a chapel so i can have like little houses, i love the game in general

Yeah, Oblivion still has good spots to explore. It's still worth playing.

On the topic of Skyrim the previous Elder Scrolls games, it looks like you'll be able to visit Morrowind and at least, the Imperial City in the DLCs.


Thing is we don't know that for sure, Bethesda could be using a standard map with all of the terrains and just then build off of that. Since all of the towns and in the provinces are already known.

Also, 47x you can't kill that dragon anyway (SPOILER) since that the dragon is the avatar of akatosh and is being projected through Martin in order to not so much kill Dagon as send him back to his plane of oblivion.

i still play it. love it on the pc. completely different game once its modded properly. although you can over mod it and end up with a crash every minute if you arent careful. for me i tend to use the elder council mod series. with all the mods installed you can do everything from join the legion through to really take over rulership of the mages guild once you become archmage.

I got Oblivion on Steam for £5 as part of a sale, and previously I bought Morrowind. I want to first obliterate Morrowind before I move onto Oblivion, then Skyrim, that's if I can find these damned thieving agents! >:o

Oblivion is still one of my favourite games. I´m currently on my second run through it, almost reached 100 in all skills and cleared most of the side quests and guild quests.
The character designs are quite ugly but I can live with that because the game is so much fun.

Fallout 3 was a really good game with great graphics but there were too little interaction with NPCs, you reach max level too quickly, almost every time you fast travel you´re ambushed by enemies and if you follow just the main quest you stay within a small area, missing out on all there is to find in the game. After a while I felt it was all sneaking around and shooting. That´s why I returned to Oblivion instead (cleared Fallout 3 two times before that though).

I wish there was a mod that made it possible to use magic and bows in Fallout 3 and guns in Oblivion. Would probably only be fun for five minutes or so.

Haven´t played Skyrim yet, I´m still waiting for my expectations to lower a bit or I´m sure to be disappointed.

Eh, I've tried getting into it oer and over again and it just isn''t able to pull me in. For the longest time I didn't understand how to actually level up(I'd assumed it was like Fallout 3, which I'd played before and uses the same engine), and other than that, the load times are a bit of an issue for me because every few seconds of exploring, the game slows down a little and it's very obvious and messes up the seamless experience. I also feel that the combat is very clunky and awkward and hard to get used to - at least after playing games like Fable or Zelda which feel much more polished.

Not to say that it's bad outright. I'm sure there are plenty of reasons why others enjoy it. I'm just unable to have fun with it. Maybe I'd have better luck with Skyrim.

As long as we're talking about oblivion, I have a funny somewhat related story

I was playing assassin's creed revelations multiplayer (bear with me I am going somewhere) My target was perched on a beam on a near by rooftop. I waited for him to get down so I could off him, but he wouldn't move.
I have this habit of talking to myself/the game

soooo

I said in my best guard voice
THIS IS THE PART WHERE YOU FALL DOWN AND BLEED TO DEATH 8) and I threw a knife at him and he fell down and I killed him.
