Bethesda does not care about PS3 owners

Summary: There is just way too much Oblivion content that could have been released and they didn't even try it, worst of all its always been available on every other platform. They were also incredibly slow to release Skyrim DLC to PSN (it was finally released with little fanfare about a month before it was all put in a new retail edition) while it was available for PC and XBox 360 right away, again, and Bethesda had the nerve to blame PSN.
Summary: I have been playing this game for a couple of days now, and no matter how hard I try I absolutely hate the game. I find the game to be boring as all hell, dull, and overly easy. I bought this game after getting Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3 as I loved both games, but unfortunately this game is not as exciting, as fun or as challenging as either of those. Gameplay (1/5) - The game is so boring that it is not even funny.
One of the Worst Designed Games I've Ever Quit Playing...

Summary: I purchased Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion thinking it would be a great introduction to Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, since I'd heard so many raving reviews of the new game. Do NOT be fooled: this game is truly awful. Graphics aside (they were fine for the time), this game has some of the least intuitive play controls of any game I've ever played in 25 years of gaming. Rotating the camera, for instance, is cumbersome.
Summary: Bought this game based on good reviews, bad decision. Don't buy this game unless you want to run around (time consuming) and spend 1/2 the game dealing with items. Not to mention that if say you accidentally pick up the wrong thing you get carted off to jail. The amount of effort you have to put in to accomplish anything is ridiculous. Go buy Knights of the Old Republic or Dragon Age Origins, those games got it right.
Summary: I bought this game a few days ago thinking that this was going to be awesome. IT IS NOT! It is very boring. People say you got hundreds and hundreds of hours of gameplay from this game well... it gave me about a whole 5 minutes of gameplay. I had to google everything and call my friend on the phone to understand what i had to be doing. The weapons are very dull and boring. lack luster graphics. it takes forever to get from point A to point B.
Summary: this game is not worth the money that was wasted on the box art, it is the worst buggy game on the market, do not let the few fans it has trick you into wasting youre hard earned cash. buy morrowind or wait for skyrim, try other games.
Summary: I love RPGs. So after seeing all the reviews. I bought this first for the Xbox 360. I tried playing it, thinking it will get better... And it didn't. Then I saw the Anniversary Edition and thought, maybe I didn't give it a good chance. After playing for a month or so. I am trading it in. One thing I hate is the "go to jail" part. You can't do anything without getting caught. And the load times.... I swear I am loading much more that I am playing.
Summary: Do not be fooled. This is just a more aesthetically pleasing version of the Game of the Year Edition of Oblivion. They added nothing new to the gameplay, they added nothing new in terms of expansions. Everything you got in the GOTY edition you get here plus some odds and ends goodies like the Making of DVD, Map, steel case etc... They did nothing to fix any glitches such as no cure for vampirism in the PS3 GOTY edition. I am pretty sure Bethesda hates the PS3...
