I'm addicted to this game.

What is the colour of night?

Red around here. Which is to say that red lights mark all the interesting shops to go to at night.

Sanguine, my brother.

Is that right? I think so.

I too am addicted to that game. Just beat the main quest and the Knights of Nine quest with a Nord Barbarian, then started a Dark Elf. Made my own class: "Scoundrel." Basically a pirate. Thief, murderer, anarchist...yeah. It's fun.

There are three primal urges we have as humans: mating, food and Oblivion.

And I have a disgusting animal urge to play Oblivion.

An Oblivion dating sim would be better than Oblivion itself though.

O Hug her
O Kiss her
O Ask for dowry

I play this game, but I'm not addicted to it. I think I would be more addicted if it wasn't quite so open-ended. On the one hand, there's always something to do, but on the other, it feels sometimes like you have no purpose.

I used to play it but got bored because it's so complicated.

I have Morrowind on the PC and it is pretty good, but I quit after awhile just because I was bored with it. I love it compared to most JRPGs though.

I got bored of it because it wasn't complicated enough. You can interpret that as "there was no way to raep the loli" if you wish.

I couldn't get into Morrowind as much because it felt more cumbersome to me...wasn't as realistic, combat system wasn't was good, stats system needed work...etc.

I like Oblivion a lot more because it's more realistic. You can do anything you want in any way you want. You can be good, evil, or a shade of gray...and these things aren't measured in any readily visible way (other than "fame" or "infamy"). It's much more engaging and it feels truer to life than other RPGs.

Plus, it feels so much more Action/Adventure Gameish than other RPGs. That's good, because I normally hate RPGs. But Oblivion is the leet.

I got the fucking RING OF DEATH. And they want $20 to replace it.

Fuck the man.

The open endedness is the only thing that kept me playing. Amazing game.


Call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX. It's Microsoft's Xbox hotline, and they repair for free until 2008.

So manly.

P.S. this game sucks.

The combat system is simplistic and repetitive. Swinging a sword back and forth or shooting arrows is absurdly plain. The magic attacks are very plain as well.

The art design is fairly boring. Most of the areas visit are wooden houses, castles, or caves that are poorly imagined and lack any kind of visual flair.

I don't give a fuck how beautiful it is outside because the game is poorly optimized and you can't even play at good settings to even see it. Xbox 360 version has a low framerate outdoors.

Closing Oblivion gates starts off fun until you realize you can close like 60 of them and they all have extremely similar structures.

Enemy strength is proportional to your level, which basically means there's no point in leveling up; in fact there's a way to game the system so that you're actually better off by NOT leveling up.

There are not enough voice actors.

Too many of the characters look like they have Down syndrome, and there's a good chance the character you made looks like it too. Character creation is too fucking difficult. Why can I contort my face in such unimaginably horrid ways. Who would want to do that.

Why hire Patrick Stewart to do voice work for such a short-lasting role.

Ending was epic, too bad you basically played no role in it other than to run.

Ex-Fucking-Actly. The same shit, like D&D. Nothing original, just fucking dwarves and making fucking soup for magic.
