Excerpt: o·bliv·i·on (1) forgetting or having forgotten; forgetfulness (2) the condition or fact being forgotten (3) official overlooking of offenses; pardon Okay, let me first start with the reason I have given you the definition of oblivion. When I first read the title of Elder Scrolls newest installment, I was shocked. I thought of the phrase 'blown into oblivion'. Having never given the word much thought before, I took it to mean that oblivion meant it would no longer exist.
Excerpt: Oblivion may very well be the wisest game purchase you’ll ever make, as such is its size, you won’t be needing another game for months to come. With a gargantuan world to explore and a possible final gameplay time of over 100 hours, the game is vast in more ways than one. Before you can set foot with wide-eyed wonder into this beautifully realized world, you must first- via an extensive character creation tool- create your characters appearance.
Conclusion: Upon booting up The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for the first time, the game feels overwhelming. Massive…daunting…basically, any synonym for freaking huge works. This left us (as it may for most) a bit unsure as to where to proceed, the right choices to make, or even what on earth is going on.
Conclusion: There’s still much to enjoy that was carried into Oblivion over from previous ES games, including a huge land, tons of quests that sometimes seem to appear spontaneously, lore-based artifacts whose purpose you must determine, and a mix of possible careers in thievery, magery, ranged and melee weaponry that actually work.
Excerpt: ’s quick save and save anywhere features are downright vital. There’s a reason you and you alone are tasked with saving the entire world aside from Patrick Stewart telling you to do so: this reason is because everyone else in the region is a bloody retard.
Conclusion: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is simply the most comprehensive game and experience on the Xbox 360 to date. While a few other games on the system might do one or two things as good or slightly better than Oblivion, none of them come close to overwhelming experience that is Oblivion. Simply put, it is the one Xbox 360 game that everyone should own.
Excerpt: It’s impossible to think of a game more deserving of the adjective “epic” than The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This game is so large, so detailed, and so full of life that it delivers a role-playing experience on par with MMORPGs. Its first-person viewpoint and intuitive controls make for some exciting battles and make a case for the game to be considered an action-RPG more than a pure role-playing game.
