Throughout my teenage years I have developed depression and social anxiety. I started with Oblivon, I played it all the time and enjoyed every minute. The main reason I still love it today is it helped me with my depression and social anxiety. It may only be a video game but it helped me develop social skils and interactions.

You could say The Elder Scrolls & Fallout saved me in a sense. It's taught me social skills, interaction, the way people and society works, morals, consequences and culture. A lot of the games content may be fictional, but i've applied my knowlege to real life and it's helped thus far.

People might bash Bethesda for things, I understand their games may not be for everyone. Although they can't to everything, with their game universes so diverse, they are a small team too. But what they CAN do is provide amazing experiences, an awesome world for us to explore and discover, learn and enjoy. For a small development team, yet still being able to create an entire Universe such as TES and evolve and expand Fallout, that's impressive. I love Bethesda, I love TES and Fallout. Oblivion is my favourite video game of all time, i'll gladly play it decades from now.

After playing Oblivion, I can see why many people love this game. It has many features missing from Skyrim, such as equipement decay and spell making (that's awesome). One thing I don't like about it, is the combat, it's very slow, and well I like faster combat.

The quests are very nice and creative, such as the one where you go inside a painting. The guild quests are very nice. The Fighter's Guild was very boring in my opinion (The Companions had a better questline), the Mage's Guild was okay (The College of Winterhold is sort of similar), the Thieve's Guild actually made me feel like a thief, the Dark Brotherhood was also nice with lots of twists and murders.

Then you have two great DLCs, one with a short but good story with good rewards and the big one that gives you a new land, weapons, spells and laughs.

Buy this game, don't let its age fool you (there's plenty of mods to change your mind).

Saved Bruma from being demolished by a Great Oblivion Gate... so I destroyed the gate, Daedra invasion stopped. However... that was not the end as the Empire descended into CIVIL WAR whilst Daedra were attacking them all at once, but they paused for a moment all because someone accidentally hit the Emperor, then everyone started to battle each other, slashing swords and clad at everybody and knocking any and all unconcious (or killed) whilst the Daedra just stand there literally watching, with me included.

Thought I'd try to talk to one but I got the "BE QUICK ABOUT IT MORTAL" approach. He wasn't very interested in speaking.

All I saw was hordes of guards from all the different cities rushing from each end and more and more began joining in the frey, including Imperial Soldiers. In the end, when the Emperor was knocked unconcious, everyone started clapping and celebrating and moved on with their daily lives, while Emperor Martin Septim just laid on the ground, ♥♥♥♥ing comatose. Then, the Daedra and the guards started fighting each other and it started happening again.

The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion is just fantastic. lmfao

_____

So, I have completed the Dark Brotherhood questline. However, I was supposed to wait for someone to assassinate at a certain time in one of the cities. So, I used the waiting option. Ofcourse it wouldn't kill me for just waiting a bit (WROOONNNGGG).

So, after waiting, battle music started and I was ontop of one of the houses. I saw someone at the last second, pulling out a bow and firing an arrow straight on my face when I was ontop of a three/four story building. It was such a strong blow that it lifted me off my feet, casted me down to the ground and I died. Bloody hell!

Reloaded from the same waiting save, managed to get out the way before it would happen again (lol). Killed the lad, Lucius randomly popped out of thin air when I killed one person and started screaming that I was a traitor I "shouldn't" have exactly killed the person I should have. He preached on about how he was going to kill me and then started to say

"Oh, you're confused aren't you. I should be killing you but something tells me I shouldn't be!"

So ofcourse, Lucius is blabbering on about a plan to catch a member of the Brotherhood, so I inadvertintly agree, no doubt. So, as I pressed forth, I turn around to see him actually RUNNING OFF into the distance when he's describing his plan. So ofcourse, I wouldn't exactly figure it out because herp-a-derp master of stealthiness just decided to go for a jog.

His voice got lower in sound and all I heard was: "The Dark Brotherhood will rise again! NOW GGGOOOooooooooo-" and he then leaves the city. So I do too, heading to my next quest location.

So, I realized what I had to do eventually, but in the top left of my screen, it then stated that "Lucius <Insert second name here> is unconcious." atleast half a dozon times over, just after he stated he needed to go into hiding. He didn't get very far, then.

Better than Skyrim. xD

My neighbours always welcome me like "Hello, Dunmer!".
I always loved to close every Oblivion Gate I found. Right now, my neighbourhood is free of Oblivion Gates. Cats can find food more easily since no Daedroth try to steel their food.
Shop owner at the corner of my street gives me free sweetrolls every morning, because I killed the minotaur at his backyard.
Before enchanting my sport shoes, I wasn't able to catch my bus. Now, I never miss it.
And since I leveled up, people keep saying "You smell of death, been conjuring up dead things?".

some people say that oblivion is much worse than morrowind, that it is boring and so one.
i played oblivion a lot and i can say that it is different to morrowind, but still good.
i can agree that the main quest is not very astonishing but the thing about TES is that main quests didn't really matter because there is so much other cool stuff in this universe.
once i had to travel through the painting into the painted world to save his artist. the other day i participated in vampire hunt which was started by the vampire himself. once i got A REALY LOYAL FAN who followed me EVERYWHERE. the other day i stayed at the inn located on the ship, and while i was sleeping that ship was HIJACKED BY PIRATES. and so one and so long, so many fascinating adventures!
the most interesting part was the shivering isles addon. i suggest you first to finish the main quest (if you want to finish it sometimes) and only than go to the shivering isles, because this one is so good, and everything else is less bright after it. this sheogorath guy, he knows how to entertain!
oh and i have an announcement for my fellow argonians: YOU CAN WEAR SHOES IN THIS GAME. HOW COOL IS THAT?

This review: contains no spoilers

Pros
  • Questline stories & characters --- Though it remains straightforward and has a simpler plot that still doesn't quite reach its full potential, the main questline manages to overtake TES3's for presentation alone.

    Everything is made up for in the game's countless side quests, which are easily the best in the series. Comical premises and unforgettable characters are plentiful, from helping a Wood Elf with his paranoia to quietly disposing of a mansion's guests by turning them against one another. Even the faction questlines, which were more errand-based in TES3, return with greater depth.

    Since all the DLC is bundled with this release, it's also worth praising the Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles expansions for the amount of content they add to the already immense base game. The latter also contains some of the most outrageous quests and characters in the series and is often considered the best video game expansion of all time.
  • Soundtrack --- Possibly the best soundtrack in the series. The tracks are memorable and greatly enhance the atmosphere, especially in the overworld, where exploration is accompanied by a relaxing piece that always feels appropriate. Dungeons and cities now have their own unique track playlists unlike in TES3.
  • Overworld --- As the geographical center of Tamriel, the province of Cyrodiil has a variety of landscapes thanks to the regions it borders; evergreen forests, marshes, snowy mountains, and seaport beaches. In addition, the Oblivion realms of Mehrunes Dagon and Sheogorath feature volcanic deadlands and an island straight out of a fantasy painting respectively.
  • Visuals --- The textures on architecture and characters aren't the highest quality considering the detail of the models, but the landscape visuals can be stunning due to a graphical style that does not shy away from its color palette.
  • Modding support --- Modding support returns for TES4 with improved functionality for mod creators and users.

Neutral
  • Gameplay --- Compared to TES3, its more modern approach makes it more tolerable for newcomers to the series, though at a cost of skills, attributes, and equipment variety.
  • Dungeons --- More atmospheric and filled with more areas of interest compared to TES3. However, there are also fewer distinct dungeon types which may increase the sense of repetition in not just architecture, but enemy types as well.

Cons
  • Leveling system --- At higher player character levels, armors, weapons, and enemies become phased out. This leads to a loss in variety and item value when even the common bandit carries some of the best equipment in the game.

Conclusion
Of the three TES games released on the Gamebryo/Creation Engine so far, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is the most well-rounded. The gameplay can be described as "one step forward, one step back" as not everything survived the transition from its predecessor. Judgment on whether the additions are a net positive will come down to each individual player familiar with the series.

TES4 also chooses a more traditional fantasy setting for its province as opposed to the imaginative, exotic land of Vvardenfell that was featured in TES3. Enemy types also seem more generic as a result. This is corrected in the Shivering Isles expansion where nothing is constrained by preestablished lore, allowing the developers to implement their wildest creations.

While it doesn't have the same depth in its lore and world-building as TES3, TES4's presentation and incredible questlines make it a contender for being the best in the series. With more modern gameplay mechanics and visuals, it's admittedly also one of the best starting points in the series for newcomers.

With hundreds of hours of content, it's highly recommended to buy The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

I played Skyrim before Oblivion, but still feels Oblivion has much to impress me.

After I saved Kvatch, people started calling me "Hero of Kvatch".

After the Bruma Battle, a statue of my character was built beside the city gate, which was generated based on my weapon and armors instead of using a pre-set one.

After the main quest line, all the guards hail me as Champion of Cyrodill when I pass by.

After I became head of a guild, I recieve unique benefits like a real man in charge.

After I became Grand Champion of the Arena, there is an adoring fan who wants to worship the ground I walk.

All these details make me feel like that I am really living in the world and making a difference. I am really changing my place in the age of chaos through hard battle and honest work.

Instead, in Skyrim, guards still call me a sneak thief after I saved Skyrim from dragons. Nobody on Solstheim recognizes me even after I saved their asses from Miraak. I helped a Jarl to reclaim his throne but all I got afterwards is "You are not as dumb as you look".

Bethesda, WTF?

============================================================

pros:
+Not bad graphic as a game in 2006.
+Despite some strange looking NPCs and their strange chit-chats, Cyrodill is a much better place than Skyrim, considering climate, city scale, politeness of the guards, etc.
+The Shocking Oblivion Gates.
+Elder Scrolls music never fails to impress.
+Magic crafting. College of Winterhold looks like a bunch of rookies in comparision.
+Newspaper about the quests you have done. I don't know why they cancel this in Skyrim.
+Shivering Isle is really something you should not miss.

cons:
-Poor motion design. Takes some getting used to.
-Awkward NPC chatting systems. Mother and daughter greet each other like strangers, have some random talk, say goodbye, and then immediately greet each other again.
-Useless followers.
-Dungeons are like f**king labyrinths and have little to offer other than common monsters and meaningless random loots. No related quests. No background info. I can see why Bethesda hired talented level designers to construct dungeons in Skyrim.
-It ruined my life like Skyrim did.
-If only I get to know this great awesome game earlier.

My recommendation is sololy based on the inability to properly map out the controller with Oblivion's key layout.

First, I am a PC controller gamer so my view is playing as one. I can only play a few games with a keyboard, because I am living with a disability.

You can use a controller, but maping the buttons and having the game not detecting buttons on my Xbox 360 PC controller has been a let down. The LT and RT buttons would not be detected, but my biggest problem was not being able to adjust the camera with the controller. These problems unfortunately made it so I cannot play this game. I played Morrowind with only a keyboard, but my reaction time was bad.

I am glad that I was able to enjoy Skyrim with Full Controller support.

This review is because of the way that the game is being handled. If you by the Goty edition on the top then good luck trying to get the other dlc. I did not see the other version when i first bought this game so now im stuck with only the 2 dlc and cant some popular mods to work. The fact that they do not have an upgrade available to get the rest of the dlc is appaling and makes those who saw the cheaper option first, then want to get the other dlc out of luck. Untill another option is made to get the dlc for those who purchased the cheaper option, such as myself, I will leave a negative review and I urge others stuck in my position to do the same so that you can get your upgrade as well without having to buy the game again with more money

And i will still pay for the upgrade i just want the other dlc that i have to pay 19.00 for even though im not geting what im paying for back since its for the dlc and the base game which i already have and not being compensated for

The proper review will be later.

Morrowind is for those that love all the details.

Skyrim is for those who love a quick streamlined adventure.

Oblivion is for those who crave the classic nostalgia train.
