Stuck in Oblivion

Two years after its release, the hype had finally settled and the price dropped bottom low, I finally decided to play The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I must admit that I was one of those gamers that kept bashing Oblivion around the time of its release (see here and here). But not because it's a bad game or it's a bad RPG. I was mainly bashing it to irk and vex all the other gamers and hypers who think it would be the greatest RPG, when it doesn't even had the core elements of a role-playing game.

Anyways, putting all the bashing behind, the game isn't bad at all (as expected with an Elder Scrolls franchise). There were a lot of improvements since The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Specifically, the fast travel and the quest marker. I was also able to run the game smoothly on high settings (HDR, Large Textures, 4X AF, etc.) on my PC. So I was able to experience that mesmerizing graphics. They removed the spears from the game, however, disallowing me to re-create my "Mystic Huntress" custom class. But all in all, Oblivion seems to be a fun game.
