Default Oblivion

Anybody have this game for the 360? If so, would you recommend it?

If you're a very, very casual gamer, stay away. You'll need a good 50+ hours just to come close to beating it.

It's designed to keep you playing endlessly in a world where almost anything is possible, but if you don't take the time to invest in playing many hours, you'll find it a waste.

Yeah, you'll get your money's worth if you like those kind of games. First night you get it, you'll probably be up until 2 in the morning playing.

I'm up until almost 3 in the morning every night playing video games. Not to mention, I get to work around 8:30 in the morning. Oh, and when you binge drink the night before (like last night) you find yourself posting on message boards because any work you do will not be productive, and thus you might as well post meaningless posts at ISH.



Damn video games, and damn alcohol. Oh, and damn the occassional Vicodin.

Am I the only person who doesn't like this game. Every person I have ever spoke to, who owns a 360, loves this game. Maybe it's just me, but I've never been able to get into those kind of games.

Hummmm...

Now let me think here... yes... of course, your lineup consist of games such as NBA 2K7, Madden 07 and for better or worse, Queers of War.

If you're not into a game as creatively wise as Oblivion, you're surely not into other gems like Viva Piņata or Eats (on XBOX-Live Arcade).

Have fun boosting your GamerScore and bragging to your friends about unlocking your "dunked on ni66a's head" Achievement.

I love RPGs in general, but I like the turnbased Japanese style a lot more than the Hack_Slash US style.
I never got into this game. The style and the gameplay just do not appeal to me.

Oblivion is really a great, great game, the best of its kind on the 360 by a long shot. But me? I had more fun with ´Enchanted Arms´ and `Phantasy Star Universe`.

Wow you really are the great mystical being you make your self out to be. Bravo.

So judging by your post it seems as though that if a person does not have an interest in a game such as Oblivion, then it must make them ignorant and/or racist. Also I could not care less about gamerscore, that is just for the people who feel that the higher your gamerscore then the better gamer you must be.

I will agree with a very small part of your post and that is the part about NBA 2k7. This is really the only game I play on the xbox. I do not play Madden or Gears of War both of which I find boring.

I play NBA 2k7 so I can play an extremely good simulation style of basketball, I do not care about dunking on people then bragging about it, like you said.

it's definitely not for average casual gamer, but if you're into that genre it's INCREDIBLE. you can play it forever.

Yeah, that's the thing, I'm not into this kind of genre. Like previously stated you have spend many hours to get the best out of this game and personally I get bored of any game after about an hour of play.
