Skyrim was a lot of people's first Elder Scrolls. I didn't really like it as much as Oblivion, largely because the culture and vivid appearance of Tamriel is just so much more pleasing than Skyrim's Nordic, mountainous, gray region. It's sad, because if Oblivion were the game to have been released a couple years ago and Skyrim in 2008/2006, Oblivion would have been the household name.

It's all because of advertising, I'd say. I mean, Elder Scrolls has always been a groundbreaking series, People just didn't know about it (and they still don't). You wouldn't believe how many times I've heard someone refer to Skyrim as the name of the series (and how many times I've heard people call ESO "Skyrim Online" or "A Skyrim MMO"). I dunno, I'm just tired of the Skyrim here, there, and everywhere and no love for Oblivion or Morrowind.

I just never get around to playing much of any game like that. Damn time consuming open world games. :(

Never liked oblivion that much to be frank, maybe because I first played Skyrim. I'm not really a fan of the level up mechanics in Oblivion.

Nobody was a fan of leveling up in Oblivion, but it was such a fantastic game in other areas that it wasn't too much of an issue. This is especially true thanks to Oblivion's emphasis on equipment, so you wouldn't just overpower everything and progression was on a more reasonable scale. Still, the leveling was cumbersome.

But the timing is a big part of it. I played Oblivion first (Well, Morrowind first, Oblivion second) and I was blown away. At the time, it was one of the most impressive games I'd ever seen, so when Skyrim came out, I wanted it to be to Oblivion what Oblivion was to Morrowind. And, as a sequel, it's alright. It adds things, but it went the safe root, mostly, and in a lot of ways it felt like a modern expansion to Oblivion. Problem is, most people played Skyrim first, so they viewed it as a whole new game rather than a sequel, and thus, their views on the game would be the reverse of my own.

...And that's generally why I tell people to start with Morrowind or Oblivion.

I quite enjoyed the three or so hours I've spent on Oblivion.
Will pick up again if I ever feel like shooting things with arrows and mucking about.

I barely played an Elder Scrolls game, but for the past 3 years have been sucked into it's vast lore and history. It's quite a fun read.

You can always read the in-game books, they have some good literature. I mean, if there's one thing that the creators cared about when making the game, it was the world and history of Tamriel.

...Well technically that's two things, but you get what I mean.

Sounds like they're bit on Social Studies haha!

I haven't played any of the Elder Scroll games and with the other games that I would rather get instead I don't find myself doing so for a while.

Speaking of RPGs, Tara, get Rune Factory 4. It's for you. If it's anywhere as good as 3 was, you'll love it.

191. some of the in game books sure are freaky though. XD Pickpocketing gets really easy after investing a single point in it... makes leveling a piece of cake too.

Wait, when will rf 4 come out? How ng not too soon, as I still have to finish skyrim and xcom: enemy unknown. That amd I'm waiting for the new pokemon and sonic game as well.

October 1st. I have it ordered on amazon, but kind of want to buy it digitally. That and Etrian Odyssey. But I got a discount on RF, and EO comes with limited edition stuff, so I have to get them both as they are -.-

This is a great Fall for games (especially for the 3DS). I'm sad that I can't get Inazuma Eleven 3, though, living in America as I do.

I really really want to get it. ;v; But I have like.. no money so I can't get it when it comes out. Maybe a bit after when I do have the money or something though. I really liked 3 and Tides of Destiny so I have good hopes for 4.

197. Indeed. But, I guess I can't complain, as I'm able to invest dozens of hours in the games I already got.

Speaking of which, time to turn Hiisada into an official thief.

I'll invest sometime in reading the last book of a series and the rest of it on Pokemon X and Fire Emblem: Awakening and anything else I feel like playing.

Outside of school and such of course.

Speaking of books, I really need to continue reading The Discovery of Heaven.

@Lapras, having a hard time believing that you never watched it before. It's been a good two years I guess since I last saw on ep, which is pretty weird as well, since I was a huge fan. XD

Speaking of FE, I wonder if there'll be any info on Fire Emblem X ShinMegaTen at TGS.

Also, love Mythbusters. It's just a good show, one of the few currently airing shows that I watch.
