The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion – RPG classic turns 15 today

TSA writes: Oblivion, the fourth title in Bethesda’s flagship Elder Scrolls series (and predecessor to the juggernaut that is Skyrim) turns 15 years old today! With that in mind, let’s take a look back at this beloved classic and the foundation that it laid, not just for Bethesda games, but the roleplaying genre at large.

It's only a classic because there was no other option at the time.

I have some classic horse armor for you
also oblivion is miles better than skyrim

I agree, but it was/is worse than Morrowind.

I can play Oblivion today and enjoy it. Morrowind? No, I tried. There is massive chasm separating Morrowind in world and game play mechanics. The NPC AI in Oblivion alone makes it a far superior game, imo.

I remember going through that series of quests to join the mages guild where you had to get a written permit from every mages guild in each town. Many of the quests are ones I still remember to this day in that sequence. Even when joining the mages guild you even got more of a school experience where you got to make your staff and craft your own spells, with the last part actually making you feel like you worked your way up to archmage when you got it.

Then I played Skyrim and became archmage in 4 fetch quests and never needed to cast a single spell.

Why do people like Skyrim over Oblivion again?

This game needs a backwards compatibility 60 fps option patch for Xbox Series consoles

Can't wait to play this in 2025

Didn't Bethesda say they'll start developing it after Starfield? It's going to take them at least 3-4 years to make a good elders scrolls game

Think you've got the Roman numerals mixed up buddy

CaptainHenry916187d ago (Edited 187d ago )

You have a link where it says it's In development? They've been working only on Starfield

Rebel_Scum187d ago

I don't get it dude.

The article is about Elder Scrolls IV released 15 years ago. So why can't you wait til 2025 to play it? Buy it on steam now lol. You're not thinking of Elder Scrolls VI?

CaptainHenry916187d ago

I'm not lol. I thinking about the new Elder Scrolls

RazzerRedux187d ago

Wrong game, dude. This is about Oblivion. Not the Elder Scrolls in development.
