Oblivion is one of those RPGs that everyone should experience at least once. Sure, while some of the mechanics and graphics may look dated (notably, the character faces look like something you see in a nightmare), the game's world, story, and characters makes the cons easy to overlook. However, even if the cons are a deal breaker, mods can easily fix them. This is a damn near perfect game that I can wholeheartedly recommend.
Much like Skyrim, Oblivion has great graphics and gameplay with an engaging story line that in itself deserves 5 stars. What really makes it shine though is the modding community that adds so much to games like this such as new outfits and armor, new and improved looks to the characters and even added quests and things to do making it's replay value last much longer than it normally would. And the best part is, all of the mods are pretty much free and easily installed. This game comes highly recommended by me.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition Deluxe, couldn't they come up with a longer name? But jokes aside Oblivion was jaw dropping experience and this version offers all the released DLC that makes the game even better. The game is still playable today, especially thanks to like a million mods there were made for the game. The only thing I don't like about this title is the difficulty scaling that is connected to character lever so you need to think before raising skills to level up.
Divines, Deadric Princes and bright hued faces, honestly, what's not to love about Oblivion? Okay, so maybe I am a little biased as this was the main game I played growing up. The best way to describe this game is that it was a great game during the time it was released. I still play this game now but for those who didn't grow up with it, the graphics might hurt the eyes. But past that, you have great storylines and side factions such as the Mages Guild and the Dark Brotherhood. Having played Skyrim as well, I prefer some of the factions/guilds in Oblivion over Skyrim. The Dark Brotherhood questline is definitely the highlight of the game and, to be honest, who doesn't want to walk around in some creepy black robes killing people in the dead of night..... or in the light of day if you're brave/skilled enough. Did I mention you get to hang out with the Daedric Prince of Madness in the Shivering Isles DLC? No? Well you're in for a fun time there. All in all, a game to be experienced for under $20.
While Skyrim enticed millions of players with its stunning graphics, satisfying gameplay and huge world just waiting to be explored, Oblivion is closer to the old-school, Dungeon and Dragons inspiration of the series (it is still a modern game by all means, a point of transition between Morrowind and Skyrim, and 2 different design choices. Even though the world of Cyrodil may not be as beautiful as that of Skyrim, the game's graphics are still good looking today, and certainly impressive thanks to the care the developers put into sculpting it. The soundtrack and gameplay are just as good, if not better than those of its sequel, compensating for the lack of kill animations, dual wielding and plethora of special abilities, some innate to a Dragonborn, with an in-depth and complex magic system, a robust class system and it's own variety of abilities and perks that are level-specific. Perhaps Oblivion's strongest strength is its multitude of interesting and engaging quests that draw the player in the game's world and provide hours and hours of fun regardless of the player choice of class and playstyle. Though the main quest is relatively short as always, the story is great and it's characters compelling (special mention of voice actors for some of the game's main characters: Sir Patrick Stewart and Sean Bean) You would do yourself a disservice not playing Oblivion just because it's a bit older than it's more popular sequel. Trust me on this!
