What can I say about Oblivion. I was gifted the game when it came out on the Xbox 360. And after that, I continued to play it till I gave the game to my girlfriend 6 years later and bought the GOTY version on PC, which I'm playing at this moment. I have a lot more hours on PC Skyrim simply because I thought it would be better. I was wrong. I'm now adding to my collection of inhuman hours of Xbox 360 Oblivion.
Don't get me wrong, dear Skyrim fanboy. It IS a great game, with amazing atmosphere and graphics. It one-ups Oblivion on graphics, since it's 4 years younger. But when it comes to atmosphere, Skyrim might as well be a cardboard box. Here's why:
Oblivion's soundtrack is rich and beautiful, unlike Skyrim's flat "Dovahkiin" "Badass" default track every time you get in a battle.
Skyrim's main questline is almost nessisary, since it contains the Shouts that are so very fun to use. Oblivion's main questline, however, is lots of fun, and optional. You'll miss out on items, but you'll never be lacking in a critical game ability that was the gimick of the entire launch.
Skyrim is flat and snowy, with SOME differences around the eastern and southwest parts of the map. And when you are in those green areas, it still feels like it's about to freeze over. Oblivion has snow, beautiful snow in fact, but it's SO diversive in the enviorment section. Beaches, forests, mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes, ponds, actual Oblivion, it's all amazing. And the colors are so vivid, with reds and greens and yellows and blues and OH GOD ITS GREAT.
When you fight a bandit in Skyrim, you're swinging a pool noodle at a mural. When you fight a bandit in Oblivion, it's head will twist to the left when you deliver the final blow with your Elven Mace, it's body crumpling to the ground, ready to plunder ( and sometimes teabag ). No silly spinning death animations that need a mod to disable like I have, just ragdoll. Like real life.
All in all, Oblivion is ahead of it's days. It was an improvement to Skyrim in the atmosphere department, not graphics. I LOVE Skyrim for all of her faults ( one of my favorite gaming moments of all time were my first 2 hours in the Forgotten Vale, absolutely breathtaking ) but Oblivion takes the cake. Morrowind? That's a different story. Totally different subject. I don't have much experience with the game honestly, so I can't effectively make a decision over who wins in the entire trilogy. And yeah, it's a trilogy. ( EDIT, I know Elder Scrolls isn't a trilogy. I was tired and wrote this half-arsed. Stop commenting on it :) ) ESO sucks ♥♥♥♥. I said it.
Buy this game, with the DLC. It ain't no map pack, it's two seperate and amazing questlines. Just buy the game. Right now.

Oblivion, in my opinion, is the best game of all time. It gets a bad reputation among fans of other elder scrolls games, you see the argument that Morrowind is the game for patient players that can enjoy an older game, and skyrim is this big new awesome RPG, and so Oblivion is seen as some weird spot in the middle of the two. Yet I repeat, oblivion is the best game I have ever played.
Many Morrowind players dislike Oblivion with the argument that it is less inclusive and immersive than Morrowind. But then why is Skyrim the only game on par with Morrowind? Skyrim, the game with less weapon types, the game with the worst alchemy, the game with the worst magic? Skyrim's graphics barely surpass the incredibly captured beauty of Cyrodil, and they had five years to make skyrim. They had four to make Oblivion, and your blind grandma could easily tell the difference between that and Morrowind graphically. The gameplay was also a complete overhaul from morrowind to oblivion. People talk about how Morrowind's or Skyrim's fighting systems are so much better, with Morrowind's realistic feel that you have to be good with the weapon type or you will be awful, or with skyrim's realistic feeling combat but Oblivion completely build anew the combat system of morrowind, made it insanely more realistic, and remains the only game in the series that you can have a sword, shield, and spell at the same time.
From Morrowind to skyrim each game got easier. Morrowind is the most difficult of the three, with no quest markers on a compass, and no advice or help whatsoever. But when I went to play skyrim it was the easiest thing in the world. Anyone can take a nord with a battleaxe and beat the game. Oblivion is in the middle. Oblivion isn't like the insane difficulty of morrowind, showing how hard each quest would be were you actually to do it in real life and record the words that someone said to find a secret location. Oblivion helps you, but is not easy. The game has an easier start, but if you can remain powerful past level 30, that's when you know you're good. Skyrim is just always easy. Progress through oblivion is kind of like progress through life. The lower your level, the less you have to worry. But as you grow into the game it takes constant effort and maintenance to remain successful. In oblivion you have to have a gameplan. Will you be a thief that goes around and gets rich to make sure they have the best equipment in the game, and talks your way out of hard situations? Will you be the the brute warrior that relies on lots of stamina and power to take down less physically gifted enemies? Or will you be my personal favorite, the mage that can go about every situation in a million different ways? Sure, you can mesh these things to any degree, but the point is that if you don't go about it correctly with skills that make sense together or you use the wrong race, you won't be successful later on.
You could go on forever about the systems in place in oblivion that make it unique and amazing but Oblivion is the game that revolutionizes combat and especially graphics (Oblivion had some of the best graphics the world had ever seen, and was made on such a large scale that's almost an unimaginable feat) but sticks true to the elder scrolls mentality. Skyrim is a game to pull people into the franchise. Skyrim is the start of a new generation, a worse generation, of TES players. Oblivion is the peak in the series.

Being someone who has owned Oblivion from 2007, I've poured thousands of hours into Oblivion over the years (non-steam) and can confidently say it is probably one of the best RPG games around.

So good, I purchased it for a second time on steam.

Beyond vanilla gameplay, which intitially I thought was great, mods can turn the game into something completely different. Add in Deadly Reflex or UV to get a deadly and bloody game, despite being somewhat unrealistic. Or maybe go for Duke Patrick's combat mods and find yourself playing a realistic combat game.

Or download thousands of other mods and mix and match to create a game that is unique for you. Don't like the levelling and skill progression? No problem. Grab numerous mods that edit the system, changing it into something more casual, more hardcore or even something completely different. XP system? Gotcha.

I've played the game through multiple times over the years. I have to say, I'm still not bored of it, though I did take a break for a couple of years whilst I played Skyrim and Morrowind.

Graphics are a little bit dated. But plenty of mods around it to bring it up to Not-Quite-Skyrim quality.

Great fun, Perhaps the combat isn't as good as Skyrims or the story isn't as rich as Morrowinds, but a great game with an awesome map.

3. You will never ride a mf dragon, but you get to make one yourself ✔
4. No matter what you do, you will always lose both your current and future king ✔
5. You will help make a mad god sane in a fashion... ✔
6. You will make a bad elven dude who was dead for some millenia, stay dead forever ✔
7. You get to kill all your fellow assassins if u play the dark brotherhood quests ✔
8. You get to steal an elder scroll and feel badass about it ✔
9. You can feel like spartacus doing the arena quests ✔
10. You will get to talk and meet the most polite and good natured vampires and still u will kill them ✔
11. You will explore the most beautiful landscapes u have ever seen ✔
12. You get to have sword shield and do magic at the same time ✔
13. You have tons of mods. ✔
14. You get to do more magic stuff ✔
15. You can ride a unicorn ✔
16. You will hate the leveling system ✔
17. You will never have to listen to the words "I used to be an adventurer like you, until i got an arrow in the knee" ✔
18. You will witness the origin of the most idiotic justice system where u get to save an entire world
and still people will lock u to jail for stealing an apple ✔
19. You get to experience a medieval sims game by making potions/crafting stuff/sleeping (a
lot)/fixing things/buying stuff/selling stuff/making a house/upgrading your house/eating/cooking
and making life altering choices that affect an entire continent ✔
20. You get to use cheats everytime u are bored and experience the ultimate thrill of being a God

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is one of the greatest games I have ever played. Made in 2006, the game still continues to amaze me, to this very day! Back those days, this game was considered as one with the most realistic graphics (Even today, they are not bad). And it was a HUGE leap from it's predecessor, Morrowind, by all accounts. But, of course, it is not perfect. Nothing is.

Well, here's my pros and cons of this game:

Pros:
- the main storyline
- the world's size and details
- character customization
- the guilds and their respective quests
- the spells (better than Skyrim's if you ask me)
- the ability to make your own spells (Not available in Skyrim)
- the look of the cities
- the soundtrack
- Mods, the possibilities are endless
Cons:
- the lockpicking system!
- armor and weapons can break and need repairing (OK, this is probably made to add realism, but I still find it annoying)
- too little amount of voice actors
- fast travel made it too easy (you have access to all the cities in the beginning so that really kills the exploration feeling)
- combat was a bit dull

But despite it's minor flaws I still enjoy the game. And recommend.

The graphics are a bit dated now, but it's still a wonderful game. You can mod it up to make that a lot better though, as the original faces are really very awful.

I prefer Skyrim by far, but if you haven't played either I'd recommend playing this one first.

Story? Great, but morrowind's was better.
Gameplay? It has aged. I won't hide it. Skyrim really has better mechanics for basically everything, but this game is a lot simpler to pick up and has better quests and storylines.
Atmosphere? Best out of the series. Although they couldn't afford to hire more than 8-12 voice actors.
Graphics? Good for a game from 2006, but it still looks amazing on max settings. Still, graphics mods polish it.
Physics? Try decorating your house. It's painful.
Leveling up and build system? Complex, but dumbed down from Morrowind, for the better.
Game length? Doing every quest and completing every guild + all the DLC = More than likely 200+ hours. Very rich.
Better than Skyrim? Absolutely. But it has aged, and won't live up to the more modernized style of Skyrim.
Has it aged well? Not quite, but you can still play it if it doesn't crash. From what I know, some cards actuall aren't compatable with the game. Mainly AMD cards, but see what cards can run this game before you buy it. It may be 20$ thrown out the window if your card isn't compatable.

Most negative reviews are either about how it can't run on their computer or how people like it for nostalgia. Don't listen to those reviews. The game is well worth the 20$ if you are really into vintage games like this that aren't dumbed down.
