One of my very first RPG game was coincidentally The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. What makes this game appealing at first sight is easily the brilliant art.
When I first observed a family member play Oblivion, I was enchanted. I immediately went out and found myself a copy.
What makes Oblivion a great game is the ease of control. You, yourself control the movements of your character with great flexibility. You will soon find the list of skills, magic, and variety of weapons and armors that affect your movement and progress in the game.
In Oblivion, you start off as your in-depth, customized character that may be one of several races. You find yourself in a jail, but are soon free to face an unknown danger. Aside from the main story-line quests, there are many side quests which greatly enhance your game.
You can join many guilds, wield a variety of weapons, own property, and journey on your own.
One of the greatest features, in my opinion, is the freedom of side quests, and most importantly, the option to simply slay everyone in sight. That's right, you can kill just about everyone so long as they are not required for the main quest. There are also tons of mods you can download to further enhance the game. Stripping your fallen enemies is also an option.
Till this day, I don't believe I've even completed all the quests possible.

Well, Oblivion. It was my first big RPG game. I have spent so many hours just travelling in its world,having forgotten about the main story. It is beautiful. Although, the main story is also interesting to play, but it is pretty short.
You start as the nameless character (just like in Skyrim). You complete the first few tasks which serve as a tutorial, and then you are free to do anything you want. You can visit cities and complete different quests given by NPC's, you can enter different fractions (thieves, soldiers) and complete their quests.
Gameplay is exciting, as well. Comparing to Gothic, which is also considered as one of the best RPG's, Oblivion has some advantages. The main one is that you have to repair armour and weapons. Simple thing, but if adds some realism. And there are horses! I know, today it isn't a surprise, but back in 2009 it was.
All in all, if you missed this game, shame on you. Buy it. Right now.
One of the best games i've ever played!Goldenheaven | Dec. 12, 2013 | See all Goldenheaven's reviews »
I fully enjoyed this game as i played i found it has an engaging story and will keep you busy for some hours a day, even when i got bored with the history i went down to the brotherhood to become a vampire and wrecked chaos.
You can engage in various activities in this game like lockpicking, thievery, horse riding, become a mage and these are just a few.
If bored i also recomend to search for some mods, but i kid you not when i say this game will be carved in your memory for the years to come.
A great game that can play on almost any computer!cordellv | Nov. 18, 2013 | See all cordellv's reviews »
Although the PC interface is a little clunky, I love this game. It's main story, plus all the side quests and DLC quests make for a very engrossing and long game. I could easily put 100+ hours into the base game itself. And, with the glorious PC edition, we got mods, and a very good community for them! You could easily triple the amount of content and add new types of gameplay. I used to have this game on my old laptop that was fairly competent in gaming, and I could play it on high settings with a mid range graphics card and 4 gigs of ram. I now have a computer with 3 gigs of ram and a basic video card and I can still play it on the low settings! I recommend this game to anyone who likes free roaming western RPG, or anyone that likes games in a fantasy setting.
One of My Favorite RPGs of All Timerct2guy | Nov. 12, 2013 | See all rct2guy's reviews »
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a very beautiful game. Although its graphics seem quite primitive for today's standards, the lush, floral scenery mixed with the use of HDR and set to the tune of some Jeremy Soule classics help bring this game up to be one of my favorite RPGs of all time. Although combat can sometimes feel clunky, and some bugs make the game seem quite broken, the storytelling in the game is unbelievably good, and allows the player to immerse themselves and literally hundreds of hours worth of content. With the expansions and plug-ins included with the GotY Deluxe edition, and the available custom content via the modding community, this game is definitely worth the incredibly low price it's currently offered at.
