    What made Oblivion great for me?The music, god the soundtrack literally took me to another world.

  • BounceHub

    Oblivion was so much better than Skyrim the main quest, side quests and all the towns looked better in my opinion think they just tried too hard with Skyrim I know a lot of people will not agree with me but it’s just my opinion didn’t even complete Skyrim I got that bored with it didn’t get into it at all

  • cesar hernandez

    I remember the fisrt time i left the prison (at the beginning of the game) and i saw that huge open world before my eyes. It was amazing.

  • Hanakin Sidewalker

    have you heard of the high elves?

  • actually sun tzu

    I remember stepping into a painted world, perpetually in autumn... it was magical

  • Brian Callahan

    The guild storylines and quests were way more interesting in Oblivion than Skyrim. The Dark Brotherhood in particular was incredible. My favorite quest in either game is the one from Oblivion Dark Brotherhood where you get locked in that inn with like 6 other people and have to kill them off one by one

  • Akuma Masurao

    Oblivion was a fairy tale, and I mean that in the best possible way. Nearly all the quests felt like something out of a fairy tale book that you'd find on the bookshelf of your grandparent's house when you were visiting.

  • Conroy Smith

    easily the quests because instead of skyrim where the thieves guild or the college do the same thing.1. go into cave2. find item3. doneit had meaning

  • Thomas Edmonson

    I loved that some NPC's would change their voice entirely when you selected certain dialogue options. Little imperfections like that make the already enjoyable game hilarious on top of it all.

  • ElfLord 1108

    Oblivion is, how can i put this, THE GREATEST GAME OF THE 2000's

  • Immortal_pancaker

    When the intense music plays you draw your sword preparing for the worst then you see it , you see the monster that plagues your thoughts your dreams more like nightmares...... it comes barreling out of the grassy swamps......A mud crab

    i somehow like oblivion more than skyrim.

  • Caden Seil

    My favorite thing was when I first got out of the prison, going over to the Ayleid ruins across the pond, getting smashed by some bandits, coming back as Master of Fighters Guild, Champion and Grand Champion of Cyrodiil and the Arena, and one shotting all of them.

  • ice checksolvea

    Far from civilization near the southern border of cyrodil i am deep within an Ayleid ruin sneaking around in complete silence when suddenly my screen spins around to an angry guard yelling "STOP CRIMINAL __!" A touch lightning spell that flung a Lich so far i could not find the body.Decorating the diverse homes of oblivion and stuff staying where i placed it: swords, helmets, gems.

  • ironside31

    The only thing about Oblivion that bugged me was coming from Morrowind with all its weird creatures and landscapes to.... Kentucky! Or any other state or country that was just rolling meadows and trees. Other than that and the wonderful potato faces it was cool

  • Jared Piper

    My favorite thing about Oblivion? The skooma..

  • KosaiAvonej

    I remember when I first left the imperial sewers, not having any idea what Oblivion was about or the ES series saying "Wait a minute?! I can do whatever I want? Oh shiiit this rocks!"

  • Luke Spencer

    The art from this video is amazing, I'm screen capturing this and setting it as my background.

  • BagOBeans

    1st: I like oblivion bcus it kept some of the old school rpg mechanics around, like class, skills and attributes, also increasing skills would give you new moves and abilities.2nd: I love the music, to me its overall the best of all the soundtracks of the ES games.3rd: I love the visuals, they were very immersive, and by that i mean, its very colorful and it just feels more fantasy/magical, i remember walking from Imperial City to Skingrad for the first time, and it was gorgeous.I like skyrim too and the colors are very immersive, and since i live in scandinavia it feel very familiar to what im used too seeing, but i would have liked the colors to be less bland.

  • Benjamin Walter

    but you could fast travel in arena and daggerfall :/

    Oblivion is my favorite Elder Scrolls so far.

  • Nyladreas Sareloth

    It's always funny to me.... People always talk about innovations and NPCs having lives and schedules in oblivion. Don't get me wrong, I love Elder Scrolls more than anything. But! Europe had Gothic much earlier than the world had Oblivion. 2001 and 2002. And Gothic did not only do all this, but even more. And everything was more alive than Oblivion even. Oblivion was just bigger. Too bad that game almost entirely missed the western market.

  • Δεινόμαχος Μελανός

    I still play oblivion, nowdays with mods... And i can say That everything in this game they way things exist from guilds to npc's seem to be feet in a very natural and balanced way. After i play skyrim i realize how interesting and cool was the most of the npc's in Oblivion.

  • crappy sounds

    Everything he said about how revolutionary oblivion was in 2006, gothic made in 2001. Oblivion had the bigger impact on the market, but its not revolutionary.

  • Cynical Demon

    I've played skyrim like 3 times a year ago and now as of two months ago I started oblivion and I'm enjoying it more than skyrim....which says alot. It actually matters what you do, in skyrim people could care less. People come up to you in awe and they recognize everything you do that happened close to that hold and a news paper called the blackhorse courier prints stories about you and people hear about your exploits and adventures and swoon at you everywhere and I'm level 25 haven't even been to kvatch to start main quest just doing as many side quests and recently I've become knight errant of leyawiin and people are actually saying "hail sir knight of the white stallion, it's an honor to even be in your presence sir" just that alone is more than I ever heard in skyrim cause in skyrim they just don't give a shit....."Wait let me guess...someone stole your sweet roll" "Oh your leader of the companions...so what, you fetch the mead?" "I've killed a dragon maybe I'm the dragonborn, come to think of it my cousin killed a dragon too maybe he's a dragonborn too" The thing that hurts skyrim is you only remember being dragged through the mud by a guard or npc after doing something amazing. Oblivion has nothing but praise....the spawns in the wilderness are fucking crazy like coming across 5 minotaurs a grizzly bear and 7 land dreughs at the same time.

  • Marvelous Chester

    Everyone knows it was the annoying fan that made Oblivion great.

  • MagentaCrystal59

    What made Oblivion great Oblivion great was the Dark Brotherhood for me! And it was unexpected. I killed a Mythic Dawn spy in her home with The Crusader stuff (Since it was a part of the main quest of aiding the soon-to-be emperor Martin Septim) and as I did a saw "a dark presence watches you" or something and I'm like...Shit! It's gonna be an ambush! But...I saw nobody. I went to sleep in my house that was once a haunted manor and there he was...Lucien Lachance. I was honestly mesmerized by him and his introduction and wanted to recruit me into The Dark Brotherhood and gave me The Blade of Woe in case of reconciliation. Now I followed the good route, not taking any of the bad routes. (I wore the Crusader's armour and weapons as proof of that.) But after completing Knights of The Nine and The Main Quest...I felt empty, even though there were a lot of quests and such. I happened to pass the Inn Lucien described and found out why whoever wanted Rufio dead...I SLAUGHTERED HIM AND TRAPPED HIM IN THE DOOR AND WATCHED HIS BODY CONSTANTLY CONVULSE! HAHAHAHAHA! >>:DThan was my first sinful route and after Lucien congratulated me I placed away all me stuff in The Knights of The Nine's Temple and started my new life with my new family. They were some of the best and challenging quests I've ever played. And it was all worth it becoming Lucien's Silencer, him giving me Shadowmere (The BEST horse in the game! Others were so slow!)and going to all these Dead Drops. And the Twist was a surprise! Both Lucien and I being deceived by a traitor! I had to prove Lucien's Innocence, but I was too late and was in shock at what happened to him.(Arquen and the others of The Black Hand are idiots, though. I wished one of them could mention about Lucien's Silencer (Me or Player) and have them wait for me to watch Lucien's fate. That way I could go You fools captured the wrong man! Holding up the traitor's Diary and Mother's Head. Lucien did his job right.)Anyway, I became Listener but my heart felt empty and black as The Void.

  • Raul Gonzalez

    I still dont know how to use the persuasion system on oblivion.

  • Apollo

    They need to remaster this

  • NerdWana

    What I really loved about Oblivion is that once I've accomplished something important in the game, the NPC's would start to recognize me, saying it's an honor to meet the imperial arch mage or thanking me for my intervention at Kvatch.Sure, Skyrim did that, too. But not as often and it didn't feel that rewarding

  • fred doolanburke

    the dark brotherhood questline was my favourite questline of all bethesda games.

  • RagingGoblin

    I know this won't be a popular opinion, but I'll have to disagree on practically all counts.1. Balancing and character/world interaction: First of all, while it's true that Oblivion was innovative in many ways, it's also very fair to say that it's not a particularly intelligent game. The balancing was - thank you, Bethesda - even worse than in Morrowind. And while I know that many people detested the hit/miss mechanic of TESIII, Oblivion's combat is arguably worse; people hacking and slashing at each other for days without any kind of feedback. Oblivion also lay the first cobbles for the road to ruin of complexity in TES; in many ways, the game, characters, and battle mechanics are - frankly - less complex and engaging equivalents of Morrowind.2. World buildingFrom a purely aesthetical viewpoint, I don't think Oblivion comes even close to either Morrowind or even Skyrim. Endless randomly generated forests and meadows, all too similar dungeons - everything outside of core areas feels like a chore to walk through once you're familiar with the area. While Morrowind was diverse, strange, and untamed, Oblivion feels like a lazy Irish wildlife sanctuary.3. Character routinesYes, the concept was innovative, but - let's be honest here - it was bad. It's amusing on your first ten hours of playtime, but the same dialogue of the same characters in front of the same building every time you walk past gets on your nerves. Especially the obviously randomly generated ones. I know you know what I'm talking about: 'Have you heard news from the other provinces? That is all! Good day!' Nice conversation, folks.I prefer the honesty of Morrowind. Sure, the NPCs only trot along, standing behind their counter, but they don't pretend to be anything they aren't. The radiant A.I. didn't add anything for me.I'd rather imagine something come alive than see something fail to do so.4. StoryThe story of Morrowing was intricate, beautiful, gritty, and fresh. It felt dramatic and wondrous.Oblivion's plotline, on the other hand, felt entirely stereotypical. 'Gates of hell open and can only be stopped by the rightful king.' That kind of story was an old hat during the Middle Ages, not exaggerating. It's true that it felt more pressing, urgent than its predecessor's, but that's really all that can be said about it.Also, truth be told, the scope of the story isn't any bigger than TESIII's. Especially considering Azura's backstory, the Dwemer, Chimer - all of that is part of the story for the character to explore. Oblivion's 'the evil god tries to invade the lands of man' doesn't even come close!Truthfully, while I can see people lavishing about Oblivion's music or quests (even though music really wasn't ever a problem with a Bethesda title), I can't understand people praising the beauty of Oblivion. Yes, Morrowind was...chiselled and edged, but Oblivion was too round, too green, too wishy-washy. It was a good game, but I can't bring myself to see it as one of the most extraordinary, truly noteworthy RPGs of history.

  • Oliver Corlett

    My favourite part of oblivion is that i was allowed to play it when I was six and I wrote story about it in school

    When this game came out I was a little kid at the time. I remember when I used to sit down on the couch with my dad and just watch him play it. I was never much as a watcher but for some reason this is the only game I actually enjoyed watching someone play for long periods of time. I remember when we first loaded the game and instantly immersed into the world of oblivion. How the story instantly kicked off from that dungeon. Designing you own unique character. Learning what skills and spells you want to use for your play style as you go though your first dungeons. This game really has a special place in my heart because me and my dad really bonded over this game. I could not wait for him to get home from work to watch him play it. If he was playing it, I was there with him. We would talk about what's going on in the story and share are thoughts and opinions on it. Then talk about it again the next day. (Also we loved setting off the traps while in dungeons and caves lol). When I stared to play oblivion my dad would watch me play it too and help me along the way. But the point of this comment is that this game really bonded me and my dad together for a lifetime +1Who ever says video games serve no purpose and are a waste of time, go fuck your self.

  • Wyatt Strauss

    If they restored Oblivion I might have to transfer my consciousness into the game and become an NPC.

  • Max Stein

    I like Oblivion but Fable is still better.

  • Smiley1967

    The most think I liked on oblivion was that you are not the main charackter you are more of a side kick thats shows his value by helping martin to defeat the enemy. So in the beginning it was like the same in good old morrowind no one show you the main enemy in the beginning it was on your own to explore everthing in skyrim it was more like hey you are the dragonborn and this is your enemy really even the end fight was a big disapoint in skyrim oblivion had so much hero novel and drama. I played Oblivion with mods more than 1500h or more, morrowind I dont know but allot and skyrim 752h.

  • SKC 123

    I enjoyed following roads, avoiding the use of the map, to get around. It was brilliant because there was often something interesting down each path, whether it was a change in the environment, cities or the random terrifying ogre. I will definitely say I prefer oblivion over skyrim purely because there was a lot more thought in the world layout AND how fantastical it was. dem magical moments like stumbling across the necromancer ritual with the beam of light radiating into the sky or the unicorn.

  • AndrewMalique

    "You're going to die in here, Breton! You're going to die!""You hear that? The guards. There coming. For you! Hehehe...""Baurus, lock that door behind us.""My sons... They're dead, aren't they?""You don't know that, sir, the messenger only said that they were attacked.""No, they're dead... I can feel it.""Get this gate open! This cell was supposed to be off-limits!""The usual mixup with the Watch, I...""Stand back, prisoner! We won't hesitate to kill you if you get in our way!"(I'm legit recalling this from memory)

  • Pinheadpatrick

    I also love the quests . In Skyrim you feel like a dog being told to go ,get this or talk to that but in oblivion it is much different. Some quests are sooo unique you wish they would never end . Some quests were just goofy and some people were actually insane or paranoid . I love the fact of Sheogorath with him taking advantage of his status and having a little fun in the process.i am in love with this game and have hundreds of hours on the game. Like if you think we need to stop the online elder scrolls games and NEED a new offline single player elder scrolls . May the wind be on your back.

  • John Blood

    my favorite thing about oblivion was making weapons of mass destruction and poisons that could kill the gate keeper in one arrow hit. Despite taking long as hell to achieve this kind of status, it feels earned because you have to really work it up there. You never felt unfairly overpowered even though you were overpowered in the end. too bad that my game fucked up and basically bricked after i used my WMD spells one time too many in the middle of a populated area.

  • Ethan Wassink

    You could fast travel in Morrowind via the silt striders and boats. Moreover, with high enough skills in Acrobatics & Athletics and/or the Levitate spell you could achieve speeds with your character faster than any other Elder Scrolls game to-date. Oblivion was my least favorite ES game that I have played. I in no way want to say your reasons for liking the game are wrong because they are completely understandable but for me they are the exact reason I like it the least. I don't always want to be The Hero that Saves the World. As you say in the video, Oblivion throws you into that immediate threat right away and for a first playthrough you might really fancy that role but what about re-playability. Personally I like to role play different roles in various play throughs. The Elder Scrolls worlds that Bethesda developed are AMAZING for that. All the games have huge worlds to explore, various guilds to join, etc. This game just felt more linear like the Fable franchise than its other Elder Scrolls counterparts, at least the ones I have played.

  • Tails Doll

    That dumb mages guild npc who was the last survivor died by getting crushed afters secs of meeting him.

  • Zandaz

    For me, Oblivion did 4 big things which means I prefer it to Skyrim:1) Zaney characters - these were memorable, slightly out there. Everyone was unique, from necrophiliac alchemists to paranoid townsfolk.2) Quests - the quests were so much richer in Oblivion than Skyrim. Dark Brotherhood had many interesting assassinations, main quest was pressing. Also you were just an ordinary person who made a name for themselves, rather than having blatant fame thrust upon you with magical powers.3) Classes - though some people complain about fixed combat, it made every character feel unique. In Skyrim they tried to be flexible, but encouraged the trio of mage, assassin or warrior. In Oblivion you could be any specific thing you liked. It also made the game more replayable and having multiple characters rewarding. In Oblivion I had a dozen characters and never got bored. In Skyrim I ended up doing everything on one account because it was too tedious to use an alt.4) Fantasy world - in Oblivion I felt like the world was different to my own, it felt magical, different. It had an atmosphere of the wonderful and outlandish. Skyrim on the other hand just felt a bit dead, like a medieval game with some fantasy thrown in. Another realm was invading, minotaurs, ogres and goblins lurked in every corner. In every corner something new anddifferent appeared, whereas in SKyrim once I'd seen 1/4 of it I felt like I'd seen it all.My opinon but think it's quite relatable.
