Obliveon is a awsome game. the way you make your character is really cool, all the smells, the hundreds of quests, all the cool armor. if u like rpg and open wolrld games then this is the game for you. this is more than the game for you, this will become your ;life untill skyrim comes out.....then skyrim will be your life lol. im not kidding.....anyone who has played this game will agree with me on this one lol.
No, I would not buy Oblivion. If you were to buy an Elder Scrolls game, I would recommend Morrowind (plenty of mods that enhance the graphics) or wait until Skyrim.
.Dull, repititive quests (compared to Morrowind)
.Not as much challange (compared to Morrowind)
.Your character gets way overpowered way too fast (compared to every game)
.Dull, repititive dungeons and ruins (Yes, even Minecraft has more variety)
.Many varied treasures (rubies, powerful artifacts (over 30 of them, compared to about 15 in Oblivion) ETC.)
.Quests are different most of the time
.Varied foes that do not become ridiculously overpowered (except in the expansions)
.You actually have to WORK and use EFFORT to improve your character
.Many characters have unique and dynamic stories
I hope you haven't bought Oblivion yet, for Morrowind is quite a steal on Steam and it is a better game overall.
