Nowadays, I play Oblivion because I got an XBox 360 on Sunday. Yes, I went back on my word. Yes, I have a game I professed that I hated and professed was a poor game. I changed my mind. I think the game is delightfully fun, delightfully addictive and delightfully satisfying.
The combat is smooth and fun for a first person game, the world is expansive and detailed, the characters are cultured, witty, aggressive, vulgar, deceptive, dark and well-acted by the voice actors. The game has some faults, but overall I think it is easily one of the greatest games ever.
You can all hate me if you want.
