You know that you can just use an injury kit to heal your injuries right? Drakes don't have an instant kill attack. If you're referring to Overwhelm, it can be interrupted with any kind of CC. Lmao you are mentioning Dragon Age's storyline/writing and Oblivion in the same sentence? Try tilting/rotating/zooming the camera. It's not rocket science. You realize you can pause the game and issue commands to smooth out the "cluster ****" right? This might be part of your problem. You do need to pay attention to equipment and upgrade your party's items if you want to succeed. Another pro tip: hit escape and it skips dialogue for people with the attention span of 6-year-olds. Overall my advice would be to learn to play.
