I'm just going to say epic. Though Oblivion may be a a few years old, I believe it still outshines the newer RPGs out there, like Force Unleashed. I just realized that in essence, Fallout 3 is a ripoff of this beauty. The graphics are stunning and the physics are extraordinarily lifelike. There is a whole world open to you, and you can do pretty much anything within the confines of the game. There are hundreds of quests and dozens of factions. Weapons can be enchanted, spells can be made; there is no limit to what you can do. There are days of the week, and hours of the day. People perform actions all of the time, depending on the day and time. For example, you can see people go to a store to run it in the morning, and then leave, lock up, and go home. You can see NPCs stealing from each other and view guards defending the city gates. The storyline is stunning, and the voices are amazing. Of the probably thousand characters, each sounds quite unique. Every bit of conversation has a voice with it, which is a pity if you're like me and simply read it to get into the game. You can wield bows, swords, maces, and staffs to destroy your mythical enemies. Content-wise, the violence is pretty mild considering you're using swords, and there are a few sexual references far and few between. I say that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a must-have for anyone. To give you an idea of what you can do, I have put 52 hours into one account and I'm not even close to getting to do everything. oblivion is truly worth the money.
