Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Just recently started playing it again. I'm introducing it to a couple friends along the way too, and so far there's nothing but good news.

It still gets to me how vast and expansive the game is. Anyone else have shared feelings?

Also: Skyrim.

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I recently began playing it for the first time. I'm stuck at Kvatch.

There's so much content in this game! I have, like, eight quests I need to finish that I don't have time for.

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Oblivion is a great game.
If it wasn't big enough by itself the modder community have done thousands of mods for the PC.
You can be a Stormtrooper with lightsaber,Link with the Master Sword,have a motorcycle instead of a horse....
I even today play Oblivion to try out the mods that are still coming out.

But Oblivion makes me wish a Zelda that would be that large with so many quests and dungeons.
But unfortunately we won't ever see such a lengthy,dense and interactive world in Zelda.
At least not until the people responsible for it change.

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

If you're playing it on the PC, there are muchos mods that I would strongly recommend, the first and foremost being Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul. Completely changes how the game is played and adds tons and tons of new ****, including quests, weapons, armor, enemies, bosses and so on.

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I mainly replayed it because I was reminded that for the PC version you're able to go into the console and mess with the gameplay just a tad, and I've been having a blast, heh...

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I played Oblivion after much persuasion from others who were seemingly shocked that I hadn't done so yet, but to my dismay I found the game mostly boring and bland. It wasn't really my thing at all. though to be fair it may have been more to do with m mood at the time- however during the two weeks that I played, I was never interested and almost had to force myself to play.
That said, I will try again in the future.

Also, I wish every single person didn't carry a weapon with them. It was ridiculous.

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED CHEATS/FIXES:

Quest Award leveler-Matches the leveled items you've acquired to your level. Now you don't have to wait until you are a high enough level to do a quest!

+5 to All Attributes- If you level up a skill at least once, the attribute it's associated with have a +5 bonus regardless how much time you actually contribute to the skill. This is definitely a "cheat" but then again your alternative is spending hours trying to perfectly level your attributes. Very useful.

Bag of Holding- Tired of moving your stuff back and forth into your home? The bag of holding is a weightless, portable container!

Deadly Reflexes- look it up. Your mind will be blown. You can decapitate, have more brawl fighting moves, (kicking, shield bash) freeze and shatter...YouTube - Deadly Reflex 6 fighting (teaser material)

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

YOU ARE THE ONE FROM MY DREAMS





LET ME SEE YOUR FACE





I love the game. I used to play it non-stop. Though what I don't like is the telepathic guards and the very stringent laws....once I accidentally got on an owned horse and then STOP! YOU VIOLATED THE LAW! PAY THE COURT A FINE OR SERVE YOUR SENTENCE! YOUR STOLEN GOODS ARE NOW FORFEIT!

Guards are really awesome though. I think after I completed the main quest in my really high level character, I decided to attack Count Skingrad.

I died amidst a lot of WHY. WON'T YOU DIE! and THIS IS THE PART WHERE YOU FALL DOWN AND BLEED TO DEATH!

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I find it one of the worst games of the Elder Scrolls series that I've played, but it's still very fun. I much preferred Morrowind, but I like a few of the additions they made in Oblivion, namely the combat and magic (save for Restoration, which they unreasonably nerfed). I also love how colorful everything is, and it is hands-down the best video game to play while stoned. Oblivion and Starfox 64.

I played this game a lot and I had loads of fun with it, but in retrospect it isn't a very good RPG. Level scaling, extremely repetitive dungeons and one voice for all the elf races were my biggest qualms. I'm fine with the voice they used for both Khajiits and Argonians, as well as the voice for Nords and Orcs, because those races sound like that. But Dunmer? They do NOT sound like they did in Oblivion. Their voices in Morrowind were awesome.

Oh my god the Male Imperial voice was my favorite part of the game. Everyone complained about the voice acting, but why? What's not to like about this voice? I want this guy (his name is Wes Johnson by the way) to narrate my life. He just has so much Shakespearean gusto in his booming voice.

oh and RATS? THEY'VE GOT FIGHTER'S GUILD PEOPLE OUT KILLING RATS THAT'S RIDICULOUS!

also I'VE FOUGHT MUDCRABS MORE FEARSOME THAN YOU!

and HA HA HA, YOU MOVE LIKE A PREGNANT COW!

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I remember on my first playthrough I killed the Dark brotherhood guy, so removed a large part of the game. In my second playthough I joined the DB, and they have some of the most fun quests ever.

Why do you not like it? What are it's flaws?

I think the flaws people focus on are the leveling system, the removal of several skills as a way to simplify abilities, and the voice acting. Essentially, people want Morrowind.

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

It was an addicting game, but it did have it's flaws. For one thing, there were too few voice actors, everyone sounded alike. For another thing, the characters weren't engaging, many had no relevance to the plot. For another thing, the world was big and explorable, but it just kind of felt dull. The world was so big, yet nothing really went on in it. There were lots of caves to explore, but nothing in them.

But, the side-quests were well done and I enjoyed the Dark Brotherhood and Thieve's Guild. I enjoyed creating the type of character that I wanted to. I enjoyed exploring the world, even if it was dull at times. Overall, I would give the game an 8/10.

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I'm so early in this game. I've explored Skingrad, but I've never been able to talk to the Count. I can't even buy a house!

Hehe.
You don't want to buy just any house,you want to buy a house in Skingrad!
The most classy town of the empire.
In order to speak to the Count and buy the house you will have to be a celebrity.
You can become one by completing the main quest,becoming the grand champion on the arena etc...
Mind that it's the most expensive house you can buy in the game and that you will need extra money to buy furniture seperately.

I love the fact that you can just punch everyone to death, even right in front of people and they won't know what's happening. Takes a lot of the fun out though. I consider that to be the most fun quest in the game.

Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Wow.
I just finished downloading it. (hehe)
This game is awesome.
The controls are smooth and everything feels good to do.
Although ever since I saw that one Zombie (GET AWAY FROM ME YOU SPAWN OF HELL BURN BURN BUUUUURN) I turn every corner slowly with my shield out.
THIS ISN'T EVEN A SCARY GAME WHY AM I SUCH A WIMP

Can't wait to get out of this dungeon and explore the great outdoors.

(also why did people leave so many lock-picks and battle axes lying around what the hell?)

EDIT: Y'know what, this game is f***ing amazing. I am having a blast sneaking through a bandit's hideout sniping them in the back and listening to them being drunk. I think I will enjoy this. Additionally, I will now keep my eye on Skyrim. I hope my computer can handle it. *crosses fingers*
