Why are YOU buying Oblivion?
« on: March 15, 2006, 09:20:05 am »
I've had several arguments with my friends on this topic...

Why are you buying Oblivion?

To just explore and not even do the main quest?

To just do the main quest and get it over with?

Kill every living thing in the whole world?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO ONCE YOU GET IT???

Explore.

I finished every mission for every guild in Morrowind, except the main quest ( :D never did it past the 2nd mission), so I've done enough missions to hold me over for a while. Although that is unless the gates start opening quickly and my cities are getting destroyed, then I'll do the missions.

But mainly to explore and try and find that Unicorn.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

I'm going to buy it, install it, and wistfully stare at the desktop icon for a few months. Maybe by then I'll have a video card capable of running the game.

I am buying Oblivion because there are so few developers that I feel deserve my money. 

ALso, to waste time.  I don't know exactly what I'll be doing, besides playing the game.  I nice bit of everything.

Explore and try everything possible and comes to my mind.

"Oooh what if I jump in this...oooh what if I kill him?" Things like that. Love to see the radiant AI at work.

So I have a reason to return to the states and not get "Seperated from" the others in my class trip to Germany! ^_^

First, Im going to buy a new gaming PC, then I'll buy Oblivion.

I'm looking forward to going through the main quest line and exploring the world on horseback.

Uhh, to have fun?

I guess explore. I want to do the fighters guild, and maybe fight in the arena. The only problem I have is all the scarry things in it. Like the undead. (I hate scarry) They're so freaking detailed.!

I want to find as many dungeons as possible and loot them ALL. And kill every single mob in them. And take their treasures. Right when I get out of the catacombs, I will start my own personal quest as the Indiana Jones of Tamriel.

I buy it because I want it :P

This might sound like I am buying it just for the gaphics or something but I have been wanting a game with nice natural environments for some time. I also want it just because the first one was good, except for the combat system. Lets hope the game has good immersion and makes you feel like you really are a hero.

It's the whole enchilada for me about feeling like I am getting to live a whole life in a detailed and interesting fantasy "world".

I particularly LOVE exploring and discovering the secrets hidden all over the gameworld in TES games.

I believe the quests in this game will be MUCH more detailed, varied, and interesting than in any other game to date.

I expect with the great graphics, more realistic NPCs, etc. that the game will be the most IMMERSIVE "virtual world" ever to date.

I also enjoy unraveling the story, etc. but most games have that so it is less unique to why I am excited about Oblivion.
