BEST VIDEO GAME EVER CREATED

This is seriously the best game ever. There is so much to do in the game. You could put easily 100 hours into it not doing a single quest twice. The quests in this game are so much better than Skyrim, just like how this game is BETTER THAN SKYRIM. There is so much replay value, with so many character creations and skills. Best Elder Scroll game, best RPGS ever, and best video game ever.

Got it after Skyrim

Let me just say, I wasn't sure about Oblivion. I played Skyrim, loved every one of the 200 hours I poured into it. Oblivion I felt was a step backwards. Understandably worse graphics.. Closing Gates? Why should I care?

Well, I bought and proved myself wrong. Oblivion is the best RPG I have ever played. And that's including Ocarina and Fallout. Graphically it isn't as great as Skyrim, but it didn't really bother me. The quests are simple and fresh. The factions and towns give you hours of gameplay. Not to mention that familiar Bethesda questing experience.

I found Oblivion to be harder than Skyrim, which to me made it the better play. A lot of time goes into leveling your character and maintaining your equipment. I felt that my character really belonged to the world. I didn't feel like I was raining down fire like some out of world diety as in Skyrim. Not that overpowering your foes with untold magic isn't great, but I digress.

All the quests are well thought out. The main quest in particular goes by smoothly. The one quest point that I would criticize were the gates. Closing gates aren't fun, and there's not enough upside to do so. No big loot, no huge reward, it's just a completion checkpoint. But that's a small blemish on a perfect game.

But it, play it, remember to feed your dog once in a while, and play some more.
