FYI, Oblivion lets you play in 3rd person view with the camera behind you, if you prefer that to a 1st person view.

Dude, Oblivion is one of the best rpg's ever. It has awsome graphics, great gameplay, and hours on top of hours of quests and things to do. Just because it came out doesn't mean its final. There are many mods / patches that are underway that will improve gameplay. Only thing lacking is no multiplayer, but their goal is to create the best sp rpg which I think they came pretty close.

Boy, you can always spot the youngsters.

My friend, there is no way that a game that is four days old can be classified as "one of the best rpg's ever". Give it a little time to cook before you start lumping it into that lofty category.

lmao.

I have aways played RPG, like the Command and conquer series. I just started playing BF2 which owns.

If you have ADD, go buy CS:S or something where you have to either kill a guy or get blown away every 2 seconds.

Oblivion is awesome, but I think Neverwinter Nights is better (as a game), being as it is turn based, and for an RPG i like turn based better than FPS style weapon use.

Now the graphics of Oblivion can't be beat, and are very similar to what we will be seeing in Unreal Tournament 2007, but man, it sure makes my 7800GT feel dated.

half life is way better (so's fear and BF2)

of course, Oblivion has a slower pacing. there's a lot more to do

Command and Conquer is an RTS game, not an RPG.



As for Oblivion, compare it with other RPG games like WoW and youll see that it has far better graphics than any other RPG to date.

I need to retract that statement I suppose, I can't say that this viewpoint is that of a "youngster" anymore. Check out this headline from GameSpot's review:

Quote:
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is simply one of the best role-playing games ever made.
So my bad, Mephane. I'll buy you a beer when you're old enough.

I still think it's too soon to make such bold statements, however. The reviewer could have made it clear that the game was frickin amazing without saying it was one of the best games ever made. Categorizations like that simply should not be made for a few years. Oh well.

The full review can be found here: http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/...ml?sid=6146657
