Its pretty tempting but for $150, I think I will pass. Now what I do want is to try to buy one of those 7' plastic statues stores are getting for the release. Myabe after a few weeks some stores will be throwing them away and I can swoop in and buy one. I would gladly spend the extra $100 on that rather than the 12" one in the collector's edition.

I have heard of Elder Scrolls but I can say that I have never played it.. I was told it was kind of like 1 player Neverwinter Nights and a few games similer to that.

It's a lot more than that...it's like you are really in your own world. Everything is so detailed, you can run by a flower and pick it and then go to your home and use it on alchemy. Your actions have consequences. You can take over towns, murder everyone if you want, or be a hero, be the best thief in the world and steal from kings and sorcerers..be a vampire...so many stories you have to play it more than a few times, and every time you play it takes weeks and months to complete a path you want, if you choose to explore. That is in Elder Scrolls: Oblivion.

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is the new one coming out and from everything I've read and seen it's so much better. Here is a link to one of there better trailer and their website:

P.S. has some decent music too

I think the only thing that has kept me away from Elder Scrolls is I know that it has several games and so on and I've always felt like if I don't start a series from the beginning I either 1) will not understand the lore / story or 2) will be robbing myself of the true experience of the game.

I read a tad bit earlier about Skyrim and it's something like 200 years after everything else so I'm guessing a new person could easily start up without missing much.

So I guess the game would be like a combination of Fable + Neverwinter Nights then?

Well also about so much interactive opportunities, throughout Oblivion I found plenty of books in dungeons, stores, peoples houses, and randomly and many of them dealt with the history of and information on Tamriel, which is the continent that holds all the nation states that the Elder Scrolls has focused it series on.

So that's part of the reason why I think it takes forever to play this game...you can read novels in it lol

I guess you can say its a mix of those two, with the complete freedom to have non-linear gameplay if you choose. Still it doesn't do it justice...wish I had a better comparison.

Also, the games don't build on each other that much that you NEED to know what happened before. I think Skyrim is supposed to take place a few hundred years after Oblivion so I can't see anything major being missed by not having played it. Even Morrowind to Oblivion where there is much less of a time gap, there is nothing missed by not playing Morrowind. Its like the Fallout series. There is some overlap in terms of lore from game to game, but each game is completely understandable and incredibly enjoyable even if it is your first time to the series.

By the way, if the game play of Skyrim is anywhere near as good as the trailer was and all of the videos make it out to be, it will be the best game of the decade imo.

I'm very tempted to buy Oblivion since it is getting really hard to wait for Skirim.

Is it still worth it to buy it now?

Ya IMO you can buy packaged deals with all the expansions and extras for cheap.

Most fun I had was with the thieves guild...I broke into everywhere and stoles everything. I mean that's how I was able to afford houses in every city and they where all pimped out.

Aergis said the most fun he had was becoming a vampire and joining the Dark Brotherhood of Assassins.

As has been said, most of the earlier lore is covered in the many, many books you find in the games.

I do hav Morrowind, but I never get far in it because I get distracted doing lots of side stuff then lose interest.

Oblivion is still a great game and definitely worth buying. I really enjoyed the Dark Brotherhood more than any other quest line in that game. My only suggestion is to avoid the main quest line for as long as possible as it really is the worst part. I don't want to spoil anything but it gets repetitive really quickly.

I'm considering buying that Oblivion game. (Damn y'all always get me hooked to new games)

Should I get it for PC or XBOX? I think if I download steam they sell some mega pack with like a dozen DLC's or something..
