Oblivion may not have been the best of the series, but it sure as hell had the best opening
>that pan over imperial city
Mod it faggot.
Still no amount of modding can turn boring forest into something good, I grant you.
And Morrowind is just too old now to go back to it.
Skyrim is too recent to be replayable.
TESO is a MMO.
Really now is not the time for TES; now is the time to fill the gap with other games until 2020, when Tamriel comes out.
>Playing TES tutorials
what is wrong with you
>not using a mod to skip the whole thing
>Guys listen what if... GUYS LISTEN... what if we spend more than 90% of the budget on Sean Bean and Patrick Stewart and use 5 voice actors for the remaining zillion characters?
Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim are not video games, they are casual playthings.
>inb4 hurf durf Morrowind nostalgia
>He didn't have a new character save right before he left the sewers.
>And Morrowind is just too old now to go back to it.
Why even bother with Oblivion when you can play an objectively better game/mod
Nah I'd advise against that. Oblivion was my first, too, and I loved it, but I replayed it again a couple of months ago. Underwhelming. Disappointing. Almost ruined the memories.
I love Oblivion. It was a good balance of freedom, but within a streamlined game. It had the most interesting quests by far. Skyrim felt too walled in with the mountains. The removal of the crazy jumps/ability to fly really made that worse. The magic in Skyrim was a joke. The A.I. felt worse to me somehow, every fucking dude in charge of a town saying the EXACT same line to you. The lighting was terrible - either blowout highlights with zero color or crushed blacks. The U.I. was boring, "shouts" were largely useless, dragons were uninteresting, the main quest was awful, as were most of the side quests.
>want to play modded oblivion
>look up modding guides for the mods that interest me
>lose any and all interest
Holy shit what a fucking process. I can't be bothered to spend 3 hours to get all this shit working
>Hey guys, lets make every enemy scale with the player, but lets make the "boss" of each dungeon absurdly stronger than the player for difficulty.
>No don't make him smarter or give him more abilities, JUST MAKE HIM HAVE MORE HP AND DO RETARDED DAMAGE, JESUS KEVIN GET IT TOGETHER.
Every elderscrolls ever
I really hope the bethesda thing at E3 isn't all about fallout, Fallout is an infintely more boring setting.
>All those guild quests
>Cities were actually different
Oblivion was a lot of fun, shame about the dungeons,oblivion gates being the same and retarded levelscaling.
I know they will never get it right, but they are the only company making open world fantasy games like this anymore.
The lack of variety it what keeps Skyrim from being replayable. After 30 or so hours there's nothing to do that you haven't already done 50 times already.
>go to cave
>get to end
>fight bigger draugr
>leave through convenient exit
Literally 70% of the content in Skyrim
Anyone remember that giant guard who was as big as the gate doors in the intro?
Fucking Bethesda Quality
No acrobatics skill for sicknasty jumps across buildings
Magic was horrifically balanced to be complete and utter shit in vanilla, you have to mod the shit out of it to make it competative.
>hopping one foot off the ground is the same as being able to jump over rooftops
>being able to use four different pre determined spells is the same as being able to create and combines effects
>I played this game for at least 50 hours trying to get into it
I wanted to love it so badly, /v/. The intro and the soundtrack are excellent, but the simple combat, poor character models, and uninteresting world held me back from truly enjoying it.
I still don't regret my time playing Oblivion though. Lots of great times fucking around in the Imperial city. Also Shivering Isles was awesome.
JRPG's at least have bosses that do interesting things, or are at least themselves interesting. Not some Draugr with the added "ancient" prefix that means his sword, which looks like all the others does 100x's the damage of other enemies that look just like him.
What school of magic made it possible for him to regrow his hair?
Dead serious, and Morrowind is what I tend to reply with when asked what my favourite game is.
I can finish any questline whilst heavily drunk.
It's lost its magic for me. Plus, it's old, I get motion sickness from 90s 3D nowadays. I didn't at the time, but maybe I'm getting old.
They won't announce the next Elder Scrolls any time soon, same reason they keep pushing the Fallout 4 announcement.
They want this piece of shit to remain relevant.
That fucker was taller than the walls separating the districts
>The lighting was terrible
man, I don't know if its my monitor or what but when I play Skyrim if I get hit by fire I'm pretty much blind and when it's gone it takes about three seconds for color to return. Is this normal?
