Ok I decided to get this game because of the hype behind it and everyone saying is a good game. But while I was playing it I dint see why people like it so much, I mean its not a bad game but I just cant see why people praise it so much, I think fable is a better game.. not for anything but oblivion reminds me of the worse game ever "Two Worlds"

I would say its probably harder to appreciate if you have been playing a lot of the newer stuff such as Fallout, Mass Effect etc. But it still seems like a great game to me

It's for a more mature player, Tr3yKilla. FPS heads need not apply.

You're not alone, tr3ykilla. Oblivion was a huge disappointment, but Bethesda (IMO obviously) haven't put out a decent game since Morrowind and even then that wasn't MINDBLOWINGLY AMAZING.

I don't see what the problem is. From the moment I started playing I knew this game was something special.
Then I couldn't motivate myself to play it for ages.
But then I started it again a few months later and haven't been able to stop since! Even after completion you can keep playing for hundreds of hours more.

There's just so much to do,

Explore the world
Explore the cities
Talk to people
Fight with people
Steal/Pickpocket
Buy/Learn new magic
Buy/Find weapons
Loot
Buy houses
Customise houses
Make everyone like you
Kill people and take their house
Make potions/concoctions
Close Oblivion gates
Become a vampire
Cure yourself of vampirism through finding the witch and collecting necessary herbs
Fight pirates and take their ship (no you can't commandeer it lol)
Ride horses
Go into dungeons
Join guilds and do the guild questlines
Return to locations that played important parts in the questline (for example, Applewatch after you've done the Dark Brotherhood questline)
Complete missions but try to change the outcome a bit, such as try to rescue an argonian that is supposed to be sacrificed (this doesn't affect the outcome but it will result in the argonian being in the Temple of the one or not)
Read books
Go to the arena and become a gladiator
Get an adoring fan
Kill the adoring fan
Enter any building
Level up
Go to prison and escape

and so on!

There's just so much to do in the immersive world. If you stay in one place, you can watch people around you go about their daily routine. People have their work, people have their favourite hang-out spots and people have their attitude.
Some people also need help and ask you to perform tasks for them

Or alternatively you can do all the things I listed above and many more which I've no doubt forgotten.
It's a beast of a game, a game like no other. All games wish they were Oblivion. Even if you don't like Oblivion now.. just wait. You will.

How many times do I have to tell people this. AGE DOES NOT MEAN MATURITY! My 12 year old cousin acts like her mother maturity wise. I am more mature than her. Then there are people in there 20's and 30's that act like they're 13 - 15.
