    No, the overly repetitive environments, the enemy levelling alongside you really killed it, not to mention that Cyrodil is the most boring section of the Elder Scrolls world, its setting was very very bland, meanwhile Morrowind had some rather exotic places in it, it felt like there was much more to see despite it being smaller in scope.

    It certainly doesn't help that Bethesda can't seem to be able to do any sort of involving stories or interesting characters.

    I hated the leveling system, where the world would be leveling with you at the same time. But that got fixed by mods and other than that there were some minor things I did not like but nothing that stoped me enjoying the game. :)

    I hate RPGs, don't really have the attention span for stating, managing quests and etc. I'm the kind of gamer that likes to be placed in a battlefield, fight and get out and go to the next, or I like driving games ... only series that defies this is Sims, who doesn't like playing god for time to time :p.

    Though I do miss more story driven games like Batman: Arkham Asylum, CoD4 was good at this for an FPS.

    Yes, you are.

    Played it vanilla for a whole month (spent all my holiday) until i couldnt get any more missions anywhere. Then installed various mods and replayed it but didnt finish.

    Played through both additional campaigns also. Can't get enough of this game tbh. Really looking forward to Skyrim, BUT i had high hopes they'd finally add MP COOP, now that would be awesome.

    Imagine invading a tunnel system full of vampires with your fellow squad of dark brotherhood killers. ARRR! :D

    Oblivion was the best game of 2006.

    i really enjoyed it , especially when adding the many many mods and forcing HDR and AA. awesomeness galore!

    However i didn not like the physics , just not in the obllivion game but also fallout games (sliding down hills, standing on the edge of a rock in mid air, weird jumping).

    hmm mixed opinions in this thread but that's okay, I didn't expect anyone else to dislike it like me

    All the problems have been either fixed or replaced by some mod. Now... If only the game had a better quest structure... All you do is accept quests and then execute. No options whatsoever(or aftereffects). Skyrim won't be much better for those who don't like oblivion. This open world nature of TES just isn't for everyone.

    Funny.....I am not a hack & slash type of guy at all.

    I have never even played one game of that.

    Yet, I was thinking maybe I should try one, and Oblivion is the first thing that came to my mind.

    Maybe i will just stick to my roots and not play them.....I really like guns and explosives rather than swords and magic.

    I was just thinking that with so few really good games to play....that i should give Oblivion a go because it was an "A" title.

    DarkMessiah has better combat than Oblivion, but it lacks an open world.

    Oblivions world & DM fighting system would be the sh!t.

    I have tried on many occasions, but it's so boring most of the time that I really never finish it.

    I want to like it, I even used like 50 mods to play it...but still not enough.

    I liked it when it first came out, well at least until I got to the 3rd or 4th Oblivion gates, then it began to appear monotonous. Much of the gameplay seems repetitive. Explore castle, cave, fort, battle imps, other creatures, repeat, rinse. And then the dastardly oblivion gates which contained zero element of fun to me. The nice graphics of the game as a whole was probably what kept me going.

    FO3 is one of my fave ever games its the first RPG i was able to get into, have put many hours into it (nearly 200 over 2 games :) )

    vegas is meh..

    oblivion shouldn't be compared to FO3 as its a lot worse imo

    He's saying Oblivion is worse than FO3, not the opposite.

    Oblivion was just frustrating, especially the spell customization.
    It was a game that asked you for not playing it.

    Oblivion is fun to mess with, but for me it's way too slow.
