Oblivion was my first TES game. Before I tried it, I was never really into RPGs. I always found their stories trite, fantasy cliches with little imagination nor depth. Oblivion, and the TES series in general, offered an alternative: instead of being forced to deal with a bad story, you, the player, get to choose what bad stories you want to experience and at what pace. It was surprisingly refreshing - if I don’t like a questline, I can just walk out. Additionally, I later discovered that if you dig deeper into the game world, the stories aren’t always that bad - there is a lot of lore and background to everything, and though not as amazing as Morrowind or even Skyrim, it was there for you to discover if you had the patience to read books, listen to conversations, and explore hidden locations. Even though it is more than half a decade old, I find Oblivion has aged well. As evidence for how wonderful I found Oblivion, I played around 500 hours of it within two months - unmodded, too. With mods, you can extend the experience even further. All in all, Oblivion is a game I recommend, as well as the entire TES series in general.

This game is huge, is even bigger that skyrim with dlcs, why?... simple... in this game you had, the normal world to explore and the oblivion plain and they are huge places to explore... You can get lost just exploring one city or looking for loot on one of the hundreds of dugeons or chating with the npcs of the game ( chek m'aiq the liar the is my favorite) or my favorite part of the game... mods... lots and lots of mods... this game had almost everthing... and hell yes is fun. +The soundtrack is beatiful. +The grafics are ok for a game of 2006. +The combat is intense and never boring. +The world is live and the main and side quest are so interesting. +This is one of the first games that had a facemotion capturing on it, you really think that the npcs are alive. +This game had Shealgorath... and if you do not know who is he... you must buy this game right now.
The only think that I do not like about this game are the minor bugs and some faces of the npcs, but you can fix this with mods.

There is only one bad thing I have to say about this game, and that's the spellcasting system being a tiny bit counter-intuitive. Other than that, it's nothing but praise from me. It's a good story, the world is huge and immersive, the gameplay is fun, the soundtrack is fun, the voice acting (which Morrowind didn't have) is on point, there is a TON of content, it's just a great game.

Despite being seven years old, it's not less impressive than when it first came out. I didn't even play it until it was about four years old and that still did nothing to lessen my enjoyment. The amount of detail put into everything (as well as all the other Elder Scrolls games) is just unreal. Whenever you think you've found everything in Cyrodiil, you'll suddenly come across some unexplored castle in the woods, or cave in the mountains. Even after putting well over 100 hours of gameplay in, I still wasn't tired of it. One of the best RPGs and worth every penny. Also, be sure to get the GOTY edition, as the Shivering Isles DLC is definitely worth those few extra bucks.
