Excerpt: The Elder Scrolls is one of gaming’s most famous Western role-playing series. It’s been a PC-focused franchise, for the most part, with the first two games exclusive to Windows, and the third, Morrowind, ported to the original Xbox a few months after its initial release.

Conclusion: Aside from being the best multimedia experience ever created for a home audience, Oblivion: Game of the Year proves without a doubt that videogames can be art, and a very fine art at that. The only thing that might justifiably deter people from buying this game is if they already purchased the additional content and expansion pack and still have the original game in their possession. For all others, however, there’s really no excuse.
Pros: Still simply the best, More content makes it even better
Cons: Requires a massive amount of time, GOTY a poor name choice

2 April 2009
Excerpt: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is without doubt one of the finest games to grace the PC and consoles during this generation. It's a huge, stunning adventure that lets you go anywhere, exploring and tackling quests as you see fit. If you're a PlayStation 3 owner who is yet to sample the delights of Tamriel then Ubisoft's Game of the Year should be high on your list of future purchases.
Excerpt: The sequel to 2002's Morrowind is such a remarkable accomplishment, not even because of its vast plains, seemingly endless amount of quests, and polished mechanics, but because it's equally accessible to both hardcore and casual gamers. You don't have to devote your life to Oblivion to truly enjoy it, and for those who don't want to pump in the hours, the main storyline can be completed in relatively few hours.
Excerpt: Pro Evolution Soccer has steadily defined itself as an arcade experience over the years. Its instant playability remains a staple of the series that continues to suffer under FIFA's success. Much like the greasy-haired prima dona on the front cover, Konami's franchise would have been the best in the world if it wasn't for one other competitor.
