Finished Oblivion. I had so much fun that I don't want to really stop, but at the same time I've been playing it for two months, I'm a little burned out.
Now, I couldn't help but compare it to Skyrim, in some ways I found Oblivion to be deficient, and in other ways it was quite superior. So I think it would be a good idea to highlight the differences, in summary:
The graphics. This is no surprise, as Oblivion came first. But in terms of design, there were quite a few missteps. I just couldn't take some of the monsters or some species seriously. And I do prefer the design of the cities of Skyrim over that of Oblivion. That said, I feel the design was, on the whole, superior. There was much more depth to it. And I think that's something that can apply in all aspects of gameplay. There was more variety, more detail. More spells. I don't know how to count this, as the number of spells were fun, but also, by and large, useless to me. I may have not had as much emphasis, in my playthrough, on magic. But I do think that it was because the majority of spells were useless up to level 50 (the skill level, not character level. I think I finished that at 31).
Though one thing I really didn't like was the lighting. I almost constantly went round using Night ... something. Nightshade? Even in daylight. It gave everything a blue tinge. Not in itself a bad thing, but I would have liked to see the world design. Oh, and the weight limit. That was just incredibly annoying.
The guild quests. It's tough to say which game has the stronger. I liked the Assassin Guild one. Thieves Guild was also good, but they were both strong in both games. The Fighters and Mages Guild were fairly boring, to be honest.
The overall story, however, I very much liked, and, even though it lacked dragons, I think it was superior.
Now playing Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. Which consists of me skipping around going 'I'm a pirate! I'm a pirate! Wheeeeeee! I'm a pir- ohh! A turtle!'
I am a Star Wars fan. That doesn't mean that I hate or love Jar Jar. That doesn't mean I hate or love Lucas, or agree or disagree 100% with him. That doesn't mean I prefer the PT over the OT, or vice versa. That doesn't mean I hate the EU, or even love all of it. These are not prerequisites. Being a man is not a prerequisite. Being a geek is not a prerequisite. The only prerequisite is that I love something about Star Wars. I am a Star Wars fan.
Life is like the Force - Luke Skywalker, Crucible. Damn straight I am.
