    Default Elder Scrolls IV : Oblivion

    I am a bit late in getting Oblivion, just got it the other day there and was wondering who else has it. What do you think of it? I am liking it so far, probably the first proper RPG I've played in a long time, stuck just now getting rid of my vampirism as it is proving to be more trouble than it is worth at the moment. Nice mechanic though all the same, lets you mix things up a bit.

    300 hours in 3 years?

    I easily logged 500 hours on one character, 400 on another and close to 800 on another, in probably 1 1/2 years, maybe less.

    FYI this game is the absolute shit on acid.

    Well, for starters, I bought it on launch day for PC. I knew my computer wasn't exactly up to snuff, but it still handled it pretty well. I almost immediately got into the modding community. Unfortunately I never made any, but I have a hefty collection that I consider to be necessary to even play the game anymore. If it wasn't for a few software and hardware glitches along the way, I would have had a few characters with 500+ hours, but I only got around 80 to 150+ on a few.

    Do you have it on 360 or PC? If PC, I can suggest a handful or two of mods that are well worth integrating.

    I have it on PS3, GOTY Edition. At first I went crazy over it then I just gradually stopped playing. Only 20 hours logged in, haven't beat the game yet, haven't even touched the expansions I got with it.

    I am playing it on the 360. This badboy looks like it is going to be mega addictive. Playing a mage, loving it. Only lvl 27 just now, doing the mage guild quests then I will go back to the main story, I have saved Kvatch.

    I don't know if this is a bug, but once you do the cure for vampire quest and you go to talk to the vampire count and you get you're reward, I kept clicking reward and he kept giving me 7.5k g, I got upto 2.5 mil then I got bored. Bug or?

    If you have vampirism kill yourself and go back to another save. It is the worst thing in that game to get rid of. Otherwise it is an amazing game and if I didn't just get my 360 and oblivion stolen I might have played it today.

    I got it cured, ended up being worth it (getting 2.5 million gold++). Just got made arch mage of the mage guild. Loving it so far.

    Sucks about getting your shit nicked, thats bang out of order. They should hang whoever is responsible.

    I agree, it was probably a couple of fucking crackheads too which makes it even worse. Our whole house got robbed and we lost like 6k worth of shit.

    Oblivion you mean Fallout without guns?

    I heard great things about this game and thoroughly enjoyed breaking Morrowind, but I don't have the time to commit to a fantasy RPG like Oblivion. Plus the setting never really did much for me, even in early Elder Scrolls games.

    I never played Morrowind, my pal gave it to me and I left it on the train before I could play it lol, lost it.

    Starting on the main quest line now. This is the most addictive thing I have played in a long time. Alot of time required, Im on the scrapheap just now so got plenty to spare.

    Err, graphically yes.

    But in terms of gameplay and character skill development, it's a completely different ghoul.

    I actually think Oblivion has superior graphics over Fallout 3 and much more options and cool sidequests where you feel like in a world. Fallout 3 just has more in depth quests but a level cap. I logged in 50+ hours for Fallout and maybe 20 for Oblivion just because I prefer guns.

    Everyone knows Fallout 3 is Oblivion with guns.

    Same engine, same quest system, same combat, same graphics.

    I mean you can try to fight it but at the end of the day they reskinned Oblivion. I like Fallolut 3 and enjoy playing but it's still just Oblivion: Gun Mode

    Just completed the main story, kind of dissapointed at how short and repetitive it was, I feel they could have done more with it. That said, the main story was never supposed to be the main draw of this game.

    How the hell do you make it to lvl 70? With my char just now, it isn't possible. I am lvl 33, in my major skills I am master in 3, expert in 3 and apprentice in 1, so should be at least lvl 51 or something. Does enchanting items to boost a skill increase your lvl?

    The main story in Oblivion is very repetitive and not very good overall. The ridiculous amount of sidequests is what makes the game worth playing.

    edit: and no enchanting items to boost a skill doesn't increase your level.

    as well as the ability to have an impact on your world... becoming a member of guilds and organization, becoming a leader of them, etc.

    also being able to mod the thing to no end. someone actually added a flying dragon mount to the game.

    These things are not available because Bethesda changed business models, not games.

    I went and read a guide and saw how you can get to 70 and that it doesn't matter really in terms of game difficulty.

    Been playing around with spells, decided to make a series of 1 minute buffs to my health/magicka/a skill and a spell that basically instant kills mobs.

    THe game play is exactly like Oblivion, and Morrowind etc. Fallout is nothing special at all, the graphics compared to Oblivion(launch game i think) is just retarded, Oblivion is fucking beautiful and Fallout is just dull(I know the reasons why, but they still could have used decent graphics).

    I, personally, thought Oblivion was about 1000 times better than Fallout, but I'm a Fantasy nerd when it comes down to it, sci-fi doesn't get me much(Mass Effect is a different story though).

    Fallout I can only see me doing the main quest, if I get back into it, but I've completely beaten Oblivion(all the quests) with 2 different characters, and I'd still pick it back up to make new toons.

    Man that game is like crack.

    The Fallout graphics are marginally better than Oblivion because it's the same engine. The reason you prefer Oblivion's graphics is because Oblivion isn't set in a nuclear wasteland, not because the graphics are better. The graphics are better, just not prettier (whatever the fuck reason you want pretty is beyond me.)

    yeah, what atmosfear said.

    also, oblivion's graphics were more impressive back when it was released compared to fallout's contemporary competition.

    I would have to go with the other guys where Oblivion has not a better graphics engine but a better setting.
    Also one thing, Killuminati?, I think I was just playing some GTA IV online with you a little bit in the missions where you escort the guy? My name was butnie.

    I easily logged 500 hours on one character, 400 on another and close to 800 on another, in probably 1 1/2 years, maybe less.

    FYI this game is the absolute shit on acid.
    One year = 8 765.81277 hours. You've spent about 1700 hours on ONE GAME in a little less than a year and a half.

    Do you realize how pathetic that is?

    Also one thing, Killuminati?, I think I was just playing some GTA IV online with you a little bit in the missions where you escort the guy? My name was butnie.
    Nah you weren't. Must have been someone else. I don't have gta iv or a method of playing it.
