BEST RPG GAME EVER:
OBLIVION-the elder scrolls
I love elder scrolls so much, it is the best RPG game ever made! If i play Oblivion, i might even forget that i still live on earth. The inside graphic and realistic environment is so breathtaking! They even have weather system. I got to see sunny days, cloudy days, rainy days, night fall, morning sun rise, Oh my! Not forgetting the wind! Even if i can't feel it, i can stimulate the feeling because the grass is moving with wind!
And what i like the most from this RPG is the freedom to choose that they give inside the game. Even when there is the main story in it, but i basically can be and can do whatever i feel like doing!
I remember the game Ultima 7 when i was a kid. Where i can kill all the villagers and steal all the items if i wanted to. And OBLIVION is pretty much the same.
And besides that, the NPC in OBLIVION has an improved AI in it. They talk to each other, they sleep, they eat, and they carry items for me to steal. I love to steal from the NPC. I even steal it from under their nose. Is not that they are stupid. But my character's sneak skill has reached its maximum level (master).
However, there is one thing i do not like about Oblivion. That is when i have to go inside the oblivion gate and close it everytime i want to finish the main quest. I HATE IT! It is so bloody inside and i mean it. It is gruesome and full of blood everywhere. Dead bodies hanging around. Ugly monsters, and evil like things inside. It gives me an uneasy feeling.
I guess i am not into shooting zombie or killing evil-ugly-looking monster or ghost and its colleagues. That is why i don't play silent hill, or resident evil. I am really sick with resident evil and cannot understand why people make such a game. And what i don't understand even more is why people buy that game ! A Korean guy in our dorm in Singapore when i was still in high school got nightmares every night from playing that game everyday in 1 month. Until he get freaked out by himself and stopped playing that game.
Well, i can kill normal monsters and bandits or whatever in the game, but i don't know why, being inside the oblivion gate just give me the creeps.
But overall I can never describe better how good and a great success OBLIVION is. I AM A GREAT FAN OF THE ELDER SCROLLS GAME! YEA BABY! GIVE ME SOME MORE OF THAT!
Mentioning that, i just remember that there is an expansion of OBLIVION : SHIVERING ISLES.
Note on self : I will buy that expansion no matter what. It is worth it!
Five thumbs up for BETHESDA SOFTWORKS! (Two on my hands and two from my feet and another one If i have a spare thumb that is)
Ow and another thing..If any of you have played Vampire II Bloodlines before (Ubisoft), Do you realize that the interaction on characters and movement are somewhat the same to Oblivion ?
When you click on the characters and how it zooms in, even the teeth of the character looks alike on both games!
They are using the same engine aren't they?
Also i noticed as if Oblivion has a Face-Gen software built in. When i wanted to make a custom character, the features in it is similar with the ones in Face-Gen software.
I also want to add in here, all those great graphics and music has been spoiled by the limited vocal from the NPC. I can hear 50 NPC with the same voice!
Awww come on! Such a huge budget Bethesda have but cannot even hire more people to fill in the vocal ?
I am sad.
