THE ELDER SCROLLS 4 OBLIVION

So I just got it. Thought I should make a thread because I know Billy, Tozzy, Sik and Tiggs have probably tried it, and a few others at least tried it out for a while.
So, lets catalog real fast:

When you got it
How many hours you logged before you stopped
Your major accomplishments

I picked it up while looking for The Godfather: Don's Edition at my local gamecrazy, they didn't have it, and I didn't feel like waiting 2 weeks for it to come in from eBay, so I picked this up for $20 knowing that allot of people seemed to love it crazy.

When you got it: three days ago
How many hours you logged before you stopped: n/a
Your major accomplishments: n/a

Share please? Danke.

That game's been out for ages. I bought it on the first release 360, and all I got were frozen loading screens and invisible shit to fight that wasn't supposed to be invisible. Gayness.

Since you are always full of video game knowledge, what in specific didn't you like about it? Or, what would you have changed to make it better for you?

Sounds like first release troubles. Maybe you should try it out again now that the bugs are gone? Though I warn, the loading times are still terrible and the people still stupid looking.

"I'll tell you what everyone else tells you about XXXX"
"How does that help me?"

You fucking idiot.

"...the loading times are still terrible"

If that was my complaint and in subsequent releases the problem still persists, WHY would I suddenly ignore the original problem that pissed me off? Tard.

Anyway, I've logged 18 hours on that game. It's not as good as Morrowind, which totally defeats the purpose of a nextgen sequel.

Wow. These are like, some of the most fucking idiotic things i've ever read from you.

Let's start first.

The game, sucked. The zooming camera bits pissed me off to no end, the retardedness of the NPCs, the stupidity of the law, the boringness of it and the rediculously anal attention to RPGing to the extreme the whole package was. I was going off on tangents, not actually engaging any kind of story, just doing boring set up bollocks. It wasn't a game, it was just stupid. There was no fun in it at all. It was pretty looking, kinda, but the rest sucked. It really just wasn't an engaging game at all. I would have changed it by not making it and starting over again.

First release troubles.... There aren't any new releases. The game is the same way it was when it was released. They made addons, and the expansion, but they haven't re-written the game. They won't.

The bugs AREN'T gone, the game still has it's flaws. The consoles are the same hardware, and that's it. The loading times are still the same since they haven't sped up the ps3 or 360.

Going back to a shit game to see if it's still shit is like putting your hand in fire and getting burned, then doing it again to see if the fire is colder.

That's how I managed to log so much time. Like in Morrowind you had more linear play, you could do your quests, side quests, etc, and if you didn't want to do that you could just explore forever. I spent 3 days finding the bipolar blade.

But in Elder Scrolls they took a good concept and stretched it into something that gayed the whole thing up. I liked the custom character classes, but after you make your guy, who cares?

lots of fixes for the game here.
http://thenexusforums.com/index.php?showforum=177
a friend of mine is playing and used some of the decent mods to fix some issues.
Like Tozzy said. They didn't fix the game, People just fixed it themselves and uploaded their fixes..
