It is amazing for the first few hours. Then you realize it's an awful game. Still worth playing it for those first few hours though.


This! This is a pretty good summary. Though how much you are willing to pay for it might depend person to person. I bought it new and wish I hadn't spent that much for it.



Oblivion is not even a particularly good game, let alone a great one. Morrowind on the otherhand is a great game.

Fuck no. I fell for the hype of Oblivion and bought the GOTY edition. I only had myself to blame......

Same here! (But lucky me I got it for cheap after some months).

I don't know why but I couldn't get into the game. I found myself asking "and now what do I do?", and as I couldn't find an answer, I stopped playing.


This!

Plus, combat was boring as hell, levelling up was stupid, the world was huge, but was oh sooooo boring (it al looked the same), the story didn't had any depth... I hated it

because we're saying that a mediocre game is mediocre?  he's likely the kind of person who feels it's great. 

That said, this is one of the few games that I see both sides to the argument.  it is mediocre and repetitive, but it's also remarkably deep and vast.  Depends on play styles, really. 



I got it all, baby! 

PS4, Switch, WiiU, XBO, PC
Vita, 3DS, Android

Top 3 this generation: 
Bloodborne, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III

I want to like it.

But the leveling system is so bad, and hand-to-hand combat damage scales so damn poorly as you level...

He's either 1: Laying on the floor in shock at the thread replies. 2: He ran to get his Oblivion disc and whisper "it's all right" to it over and over whilst rocking back and forth in the fetal position or 3. He raged when he saw the comments and proceeded to destroy his computer so he never has to visit Vgchartz again.

Yeah that's what I was kinda thinking.
