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.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game of the Year Edition Review
23 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.
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.
Excerpt: Earlier in the year, Bethesda gave us The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Shortly after, Xbox 360 owners were treated to Shivering Isles, which left PlayStation 3 Oblivion owners feeling a little empty on the inside.
Conclusion: Yet again, this is the closest thing we've got right now to an offline MMORPG. That means even more gameplay for the money with the GOTY Edition, and with a huge story and hundreds of hours of exploration to be had, good luck finding a better value.
