Post Does anyone still play this game?

I haven't heard much about it, since everyone jumped the ban wagon to Skyrim.

i was going to revisit this.
i got the game with shivering isles, and i only ever completed the main questline and one of the factions (the fighters guild i believe, where you just battle a increasingly difficult enemy)
want to do other bits and get moneys worth but need to finish skyrim first.

I still have to finish ONE achievement from one of the DLCs. Been playing a Monk which was a mistake.

I'm playing it now. Picked up the game years ago, started it, but never really got into it. Was too overwhelming, had no idea what to do, found it very complicated.

Always kept the game though. After playing Fallout3 and Skyrim, I recently decided to give this game another go, and now I'm hooked!

Personally I like Fallout3 the best of those 3 games. I'm just not into that medieval nonsense with the swords and magic, but still having great fun with it.

I'm starting it now. I played it on another GT when it came out, and played a little on ps3.

Just bought it when it was on sale, and working my way through it now.

I don't really think it's jumping a bandwagon if you play the sequel of a game made by the same developers. However, I do still play this game, I find it far more entertaining than Skyrim. I loved the plot of the game and Shivering Isles was incredible. I have trouble with the graphics, though. I guess after you get used to the newer graphics of games like Skyrim, Fallout 3, and Fallout: New Vegas, it's harder to get past the look of a game released in 2006.

Jesus! I've owned Oblivion since April 2006. Since then, I've logged hundreds of hours playing the game - most of that time came between '06 and '07 - but I've never beat the main story or the mages guild! I've made a battle mage with the purpose of accomplishing both of these tasks, though.

On topic, I play this game still. I also consider Oblivion better than Skyrim. Maybe it's my nostalgic bias, but I just can't get into being a Dragon Born.

I stopped this game. If Xbox Live has a sale on the Dragonborn DLC, I'll start playing Skyrim again.

It's really unfortunate. Oblivion was and is an amazing game! I love how mysterious it is.... Skyrim really doesn't have that....

I'm playing through the game now - I got it cheap as part of a deal. I can certainly see how it must have been amazing when it first came out, but now it just seems a little slow and clunky (compared to more modern open world games - RDR or GTA4 for example). Still a fun world to explore and a decent game, but I can't see me playing after I have finished the main storyline and guild quests. I don't have Skyrim so I can't compare.

I haven't started on the main quest yet - just working through the guilds.

I beat Oblivion twice on an old account and never beat it on this one so I plan on going through it very soon. Am probably going to lower the difficulty though as I'm doing it just for the achievements. Don't need another 100 hours logged in this.

Also, Morrowind IS the best. I was watching a video on the overhaul mod for the PC and might get back into it.

I've had the Anniversary Edition Steelcase version sitting in my "to get to eventually" stash for quite awhile - I think once I clear out a few more of my backlog (near done with two now) I'll be starting this up. I loved Morrowind when I played it on the PC years ago now, so I'm looking forward to this one... eventually.

Not to hijack this thread, but to anyone who has played through the last 3 ES's, is there any continuity that would require me to replay through Morrowind before playing Oblivion (or a reason to play through Oblivion before Skyrim?).

I'm thinking about picking this up if I can find a GOTY edition. Never jumped on the skyrim bandwagon so maybe I'm a bit behind in my gaming though.

This has been sitting on my shelf for around two years now. Finally started Skyrim after all of the DLC went on sale 50% off. Maybe once I finish Skyrim I will finally tackle Oblivion. Gotta love massive backlogs.

Same for me. I spent 405+ hours in Skyrim and had Oblivion for awhile and never touched it. Decided yesterday that it was time to give it a go.

I ordered the GotY edition about a month or so ago after GameStop told me they don't sell this game at all anymore (even though Walmart had it at the time I asked about it but I couldn't get a ride that far into town -_-). I ordered on Amazon but haven't gotten that far yet. I'm working through Assassins Creed Brotherhood first, and then I have 2 more games ahead of it still. I'm debating which I want to do first though after those.... Oblivion or Fallout 3.

I have Morrowind for the old Xbox and love that game (HATE the glitches and constant freezing though). I can't wait to start on Oblivion, and I'm grabbing Skyrim after the full collection is released on disc so I can get the DLC too

As great as Skyrim is, I love Oblivion more. Kind of a shame that after three mediocre DLCs that Bethesda is moving on with Skyrim.

When it originally came out I played it for a few months on the PC...
But I overdosed on mods and addons... Also I'd play one character for a week, then get bored or annoyed at something, mod it and create a new charact.

Furtherst I got on the main plot was entering the first obliviongate.

Then last year I got the Game of the Year edition for the 360 and had a blast. Took me about a month to get all the achievements, but I still play it every once in a while now.
That world, while technically uglier than Skyrim, still feels more vibrant and alive.
(Could be that because I come from scandinavia, I can see "Skyrim" outside my window three quarters of the year).

I am still playing it. I have played it a few times before, and I have to say it is still one of the best games on the 360 even 7 years later. I finished the original 1000, and now I am working on finishing up Shivering Isles.

I just started this one today. Still too early to tell so far but it's pretty decent so far. I like the maps better in Morrowind (they were bigger and I liked how the world map showed where you've been/haven't been also). I also like how a few things like the Torch and such don't count towards your total weight. I never used them in Morrowind because they counted and it seemed a waste of space LoL

I played it recently, however I've only been playing on an xbox since December so it was a new game for me. It wasn't hard to beat, I went at a low level for the entire game (I think the highest I leveled up was 4 until after the main quest). It was a lot of fun too, the Shivering Isles DLC was my favorite part.

I haven't checked out Skyrim yet. All I've really heard about it is that the graphics, compared to Oblivion, will blow me away.
