Anyone knows where I can get a better deal for Oblivion (with expansions, Game of the Year edition) than these? It's 10 on Amazon.co.UK but the shipping to Spain is half as much. I'd actually prefer a download, but in Steam it's not cheaper. There isn't a better deal in eBay either. Also in Steam there's a GOTY "Deluxe" edition in addition to the regular GOTY one, but I'm not sure what the additional content is (there's no info in Mobygames): "Fighter's Stronghold Expansion, Spell Tome Treasures, Vile Lair, Mehrune's Razor and much more."

It's not pricey, just wondering. I think I'll be exploiting Morrowind some more for a time, though. I beat the main quest last time (without expansions) but I haven't explored half of it yet, and it would be waste.

If you can wait, Steam should have its yearly summer sale at the beginning of next month and no doubt Oblivions will be part of it too.

I can wait no problem, I still have a lot of Morrowind, and I don't plan to play very intensively. Not to mention that I have Civ5 waiting. I'll subscribe to the RSS feeds. And happy birthday.

A week ago I started playing a game called Skyrim, which was apparently a big thing years ago, :P and boy I am impressed. 10/10. I started just after finally finishing Oblivion, and what a huge difference.

The smith lady in Whiterun got killed by a random vampire :_( and left me money in her testament!

I still haven't played Skyrim, it's been part of my backlog of games for so long now I think it's probably starting to resent me.

Dude you don't know what you are missing. OK I don't know if this kind of game is your cup of tea, and it's true The Elder Scrolls is by far my favorite RPG saga, but this is a perfectly crafted and art worthy game.

Not just the core gameplay, quests, characters, all compares favorably to any other installment in the series or other RPGs, but the ambiance, the simple but solid NPC dialogue mechanics, the first time I get suspension of disbelief in an RPG; the great scriptwriting, the ambiance is simply amazing! and there's more that you can do besides the typical core gameplay (my favorite thing is smithing, but also hunting, just exploring all the fascinating landscapes...

Here are some screenshots (not the best graphic quality due to my dated hardware):

Is not that good honestly, is very simple and consolish, the game world is pretty amazing though.

I've always enjoyed TES games to a certain extent, even Oblivion, but they're not exactly my cup of tea (almost, but not quite).

I got bored quite quickly with the vast amount of meaningless combat in Oblivion, Fallout 3 and New Vegas. I'd be much happier if most of that was stripped away, and there were more parts like the Dark Brotherhood quests.

I'm sure I will get around to it eventually though! So many other games to play at the moment, I would have to stop working to be able to play them all!

Anyway the quality is higher than other games, even Morrowimd at leat as far as dialogue and side quest writing go. Oblivion was decent technically but the artists and writers who got paid for it will burn in hell. One of the things I like most is the simple but smart dialogue mechanics and the great writing make me feel like NPCs could be real people instead of "press A to talk" Ultima/JRPG characters from any other game.
