      I have the 360 version. The Main Quest in the game doesn't take that long. Can take about a month to finish the main quest. But the good thing (what I like about this game as well as Morrowind) is that there are hundreds of miscellaneous (sp?) quests. The game is very in depth and is very fun. When I start playing I can't put it down.

        Some help here, please.

        I haven't been playing much in the way of video games for several reasons. First, I have two kids. Second, my old laptop couldn't support the new games (its hard to play a game simply by listening to it). For the most part to begin with, I pretty much played on SW titles.

        However, I have a brand spanking new Dell (less than a month out of the box) with a huge frackin' 20 inch digital flat screen! I'm thinking/hoping that this will support all the latest PC games out there. I'm interested in getting back into video games and since my wife isn't too keen on me getting a console system I guess I'm relegated to the PC. I think that will be okay. I'm not a rabid gamer.

        This game seems like the latest and greatest thing. I wonder if this is where I can pick things up. In other words, do I need to get and play through the previous Elder Scrolls before this, or can I start on this game and not be totally lost and hopeless?

        Thanks.
        Victory and defeat are matters of the temporary force of circumstance.



        Thanks, Snk16!!

          If you just get Oblivion you will not be lost. I recommend you get the special edition of this if you want some background info. But even that isn't necessary as you pick up all background material in the game via books and dialogue. I love the fact that the Empire in the game is based on Rome

              Mad serious bump.lol

              Just picked up this game yesterday to give it a chance.

              So far I'm disappointed in this game.

              Just like other Bethesda games I've played, it's overrated based on the high praise people give.

                I play it. High elves are awesome. Did lots of side missions and finished the college of winterhold missions. I've had it since launch but haven't played it as much as I'd like because of work and school.

                  The problem with playing a game like Oblivion late is that you've been hearing about how good it is for a long, long time and anything less than perfection will be a disappointment. It's hard to give an unbiased opinion on a game that's received so much hype if you weren't playing it at the same time as everyone else. Oblivion is (was) a fantastic game, it's a shame you're not enjoying it now.

                  PS. Epic necrobump.

                    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's a all out bad game. Just saying it's not as good as people claim. No matter when I play(ed) it.

                    I'm not basing my opinion on it with current graphics, just all around gameplay and fun factor.

                    I'm only 5hrs in, it's pretty boring, and the game itself has some issues.

                    At the same time I'm not big on Bethesda, I've played Fallout 3, New Vegas, and now Oblivion, each of which people ravened about, I felt was just average games. Bethesda is good at making large scale games, but their characters lack graphically based on each time frame of the games release.

                    In Oblivion, I don't like how I can kill my allies. So far I've murdered allies mistakenly during combat, because we are both hack and slashing the same opponent.

                    I don't like how the city guards are magical. During a side quest, I had to sneak into someones home(a criminal), nobody saw me enter the home, no one was in the home, theirs no alarms. But somehow 2 city guards appear.

                    That's pretty silly to me.

                      Nice bump lol. But yeah, I see what you're saying. However, those are simply gameplay mechanics. There wouldn't be much to the game if you were easily able to go in any house and quietly steal what you want. Although, generally, I never had a problem with burglary attempts. It did take me a while to get into Oblivion as with all Bethesda games. I agree with you that companions die too fast and too easily. That was toned down in Skyrim, thankfully.

                      As for Bethesda in general, I think they put out the best open world games altogether. I just think their games need to be a little more cinematic via cutscenes and allow us to have a more dynamic character. I love Fallout and TES but I really don't feel connected to my own character in any way.

                        Oblivion > any game ever made ever...


                        but seriously... amazing game. Better than Skyrim for sure. This game has the best quests of any game like it i've ever played. it's landscape is extremely varied and the add-ons are sweet too like Sheogorath's land.

                        Oblivion rocks, just give it some time.

                        PS whatever you do don't try and spam your character or get the 100% chameleon. Ruins it. just play the game and I'm sure you will love it after you're into it aways. Try the Dark Brotherhood. (Ten thousand times better in Oblivion)

                            what would you consider better games? and don't mention any recent ones, i am talking games as old as oblivion.

                            that game along with fallout 3 most definitely deserved all the praise they got IMO

                            i can understand if you didn't like the gameplay, if you are an FPS fan. if that is the case then you need to realize that this game is not an FPS game, its an RPG game.

                            name me some single player RPG games better.

                            good luck.

                              From 2006?

                              It'd be hard to name a game from 2006, I didn't start playing RPG's until Mass Effect 1 came out in 07.

                              If you want to count games in between 06-08 or 09; then Mass Effect 1, Fable II, Dragon Age Origins, Diablo II, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Borderlands.
