best game for the best console

im not going to say this becuase i think ps3 is better than any other console, but its the truth. the playstation3 version runs smoother and has better graphics than the 360 version too and if you like runescape or something like that, this is a perfect game for you ( note that this game is for everyone and everyone will love it but mostly runescape lovers will like it, i think)

like i said the map is vary massive and large which can be a bad thing because it takes like a whole hour to get from one side of the map to the other side and you got to do a lota traveling so well lets just say get the pop tarts ready.
you get a good weapon selection so its fun, buts its only fun when you really doing stuff.
the game super sucks when you gota lota traveling to do.

Excellent Open-Ended RPG

Oblivion is a excellent and expansive (100+ hour) RPG. It's a bit slow to start and requires some patience, but if you're into RPGs and you give it a chance you'll almost certainly like it. The high points are open-ended gameplay, unbelievable graphics, and interesting plots. The formula works well. Immersion is important to me, and I've rarely felt so immersed in a game as when I play Oblivion. They even hired some professional voice talent -- you may recognize some popular actors. (Yes, there's a reason Martin Septim sounds like Boromir.)

As others have mentioned, the open-ended and nonlinear gameplay comes at the price of complexity and a few rough edges. The game can be a little buggy and hard to understand at times, but I think the good more than makes up for the faults with Oblivion.

Not everyone will like this game, but if you like RPGs and have enough patience to let it grow on you, this one is definitely worth a try.
