I was completely new to Oblivion when I first played. I was wandering through that dark sewer for about half an hour just looking around not really understanding anything that had just happened. I choose a character and class that looks good and then step outside the gate and see my first view of the outside of Cyrodiil. I was awestruck. It was sunset and the golden-orange half-light was shining across the waster of Lake Rumare giving off a spectacular glow. A butterfly past my right hand side and to my left a mud crab scuttles along. The clumps of grass look so realistic, a ruined building lies across the water, and a wooden boat and rickety pier are stationed in front of me. Behind me, a huge fortified town on a hill stands, with a huge tower standing above them all. I had never seen a game like this before. It was unbelievable. Still now, after having the game for almost a year and a half, it still takes my breath away looking at the glorious countryside and nature of Cyrodiil. All the scenery, the things to see and the characters! Snowy Bruma in the North, the towering pinnacle that is Dive Rock, even the ruined, burnt, desolate city of Kvatch. And all the characters that you get to know, some in-depth, others not. The mysterious, murderous but friendly figure of Lucien Lachance, speaker of the Black Hand. The legendary Gray Fox. Owyn, the grumpy Blademaster of the Arena that eventually gets to respect you. The tired Nord and fence of the Thieves Guild, Ongar the World-Weary. You get to know all these characters as if they were real people. The enjoyment that I got out of this game hasn’t been matched by any other game ever. Even the quests and storylines were magnificent. The Fighters Guild’s struggle against the Blackwood Company. The Necrophiliamancers murdering the Mages Guild, the traitor in the Dark Brotherhood and the retirement of the old Gray Fox in the Thieves Guild. Brilliant quests like Whodunit and Accidents Happen in the Dark Brotherhood raise a dark pleasure in you as you kill people for enjoyment and out of reverence for Sithis. This game involves you like no other, it almost feels like you are there. You feel warmer after you step inside after a cold day in Bruma, you can almost feel the crisp, refreshing water of Lake Rumare as you go swimming. I have no doubt in my mind that this is the best game I have ever played. Bethesda created a masterpiece with this game, I believe it is truly brilliant. Even if there are a few flaws in this game, the modding community out there have created hundreds of mods, some superb, others not. They have perfected an already brilliant game. I am useless at modding myself, so I am very grateful to those modders out there that have improved this spectacular game. To the critics of this game, I believe you shouldn’t bother playing this game if you are not getting full enjoyment out of it. If you are not enjoying this game as well as the creatively brilliant mods out there, there is no point. This post is all my opinion. Some may agree with it and others will no doubt this agree. But I believe that this is not just a game, but a work of art. I write this as a tribute to all who helped make the game and all the modders who have put hours of effort into perfecting mods that improve this game even more. I am waiting in anticipation for Elder Scrolls V and hope that it can match the standards that Morrowind and Oblivion set for it.

    It easily is one of the best games i have ever played. It would be a good MMO. Some people have tried, but they have failed.

    HELL YEAAAA

    dont forget shivering isles, that was an AMAZING expansion.. i havent play knights of the 9.. is that good?

    but anyway

    this was the game that actually got me into RPGs
    and probably my favorite thing about the game is the character creation
    ive played the game about 4 times with different characters..
    if i remember correctly it was a high elf with all the magic schools as major skills, a dark elf thief with illusion marksmanship and hand-to-hand, a breton with.. i forgot, and a wood elf with bows and arrows, heavy armor and alteration

    you can just mix and match all these skills and classes to make a really unique character <3

    i wonder if fallout 3 will feel anything like this game..

    Oblivion is boring.

    I kind of agree with that, but I mean it's just not my game. It was pretty fun while it lasted, graphics were amazing, but it kind of died after a few hours of playtime.

    Yeah, it died for me after the first 260 hours of gameplay. But it was good while it lasted.

    You just didnt like it because you didnt play long enough to get into it! It takes longer than that to get into a game! Ugh noob!

    Sorry, I just had to comment. It was too good to pass up lol.

    The first time I launched Oblivion, I really didn't think I would like it because I'm not really into RPG style games. When I got out of those sewers, I was amazed how good it looked, but at the same time very confused on what I was doing, I went into the Imperial City just talking to people, after that I started jus wandering through the hills and ended up dying by an Imp, lol. After getting into the game and starting the main quests and getting the hang of the game, I thought it was just a blast. I was so into it and loved every second. Than came the expansions and the other content that furthered my amusement. All together Oblivion is just a wonderful game and all the things you can in it are amazing. I really love how real it can be sometimes. No, not the whole fantasty deal, just like the weather and terrain and everything make it a really good game.

    After riding around the countryside for an hour, I got sick of the game. Some good potential screenshots in that game though.

    Its quite surprising that most of you guise hate this game or find it boring. The reason behind this could possibly be that the game is all about swords and magic and also the fact that this game is set before Crysis, before all of those alien technology, all that crap. Or you guys just hate swords and magic :P

    Meh, its my most played single player game ever... 107 hours on xfire, but its probably more than that because at that time I didnt use xfire that much. I just loved its freedom and the storylines.
