Re: I've started playing Oblivion

Sun Jan 06, 2013 9:51 am

I've been wondering if Oblivion is worth going to after playing Skyrim. From this thread, conversations with brick, and this thread over on the Skyrim Forums: http://skyrimforums.org/threads/is-obli ... rim.16990/ I believe I will give it a shot. (As soon as I can jack it from brick. :) )

I'm having a blast with it Kal. Of course I haven't played Skyrim for a point of reference...

I've completed the Arena, Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild, and Fighter's Guild questlines. I'll start the Mages Guild Questline tonight. Haven't even done the main questline yet but I will after I finish the Mages Guild. Then I'll move on to the Shivering Isles.

I just loved how you first even met the Thieves Guild folks... Dammit.


If I keep reading or thinking about this game I'm gonna end up starting a new playthrough...

If you like Oblivion I think you'll really enjoy Skyrim. Better engine, more streamlined leveling, and a LOT more quests.

Becoming the Arch-Mage is the best thing in both games.

I did all that with my first character in Oblivion too. And its one of the things i changed for Skyrim.

Each character I made was designed for 1 or 2 specific guilds. I wouldn't do the mages guild with my sneaky character, etc. Also my main fighter character had moral issues with committing crimes, so I didnt do any side quests that required me to kill or steal things.

I thought it was much more "realistic", and I really enjoy making new characters so it was awesome.

Ugh... I just lost 20 minutes of gameplay and a dozen location unlocks to a Pineappling bear. ::censored2::

Wish it would autosave more often.

How the Dark Brotherhood starts is pretty neat as well imo.

Side stuff was definitely my favorite part about Oblivion iirc at one point I spent 40+ hours doing the guild stuff, side quests, and random exploration without advancing the main plot.

I just got started yesterday. Level 2. i'm an assassin elf born under the thief sign, and trying to stay away from heavy armor. I like it so far, but the comments on the archery were spot on, which really sucks since that's always my preference. Everything else is pretty cool.

Anyone else notice that all the shopowners' faces look the same, just different colors? lol
