Excerpt: The Elder Scrolls series has strong PC roots, though its presence is growing in the console arena. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was released simultaneously for the PC and Xbox 360, and while the 360 version lacks access to the mod community of the PC, it is still a very solid entry that offers...
Excerpt: Say what you will about the Elder Scrolls series, but where they come from, they make 'em big and chock full of stuff to do. So it is with Oblivion, the latest and largest entry into the series, this time taking place in the Empire of Cyrodiil during what may be its final days.
Excerpt: MMORPG's do a great job of immersing players into a virtual world where they can always find something new to do or someplace new to explore every time they play. But this year, Xbox 360 owners can find a very similar experience in the single-player RPG, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion .

Conclusion: The hype was over the top, the gameplay is shoddily reliant on the uninspired system of travel; not to mention fairly repetitive, the music is decent but its timing is abrupt, and the graphics are a mess. The narrative, as if I even have to clarify, is asinine.
Excerpt: If you're a PC gamer and you haven't heard of Oblivion, you may perhaps want to come out from under your box at some point in the near future. Wait, that's a little unfair. If you're a PC gamer and you haven't heard of the Elder Scrolls games, you definitely need to come out from under your box as...
