My personal odyssey with Oblivion is well documented in these forums
. The levelling system made me go mad 16 hours in and completely destroyed any desire to play further. I also found Fallout 3 a lifeless and soulless chore, which I stopped playing directly after Megaton.
Now I hear the same praise I heard about Fallout 3 and Oblivion about Skyrim. It being the best thing since sliced bread. I see all those features, forum threads and videos on YT
where people go nuts for it. But I don't want to spend another 40 to 50€ just to get another disappointing WRPG.
