oblivin had trouble rendering a inside of a house .... it loaded it seperately from outside so that transition wasnt seamless and it just couldnt run it as good as the HL2 engine runs much bigger maps than the inside of a fracing house :/

i have just finished Oblivion, it is a good game but i did find that it lacked depth, the NPC's seemed to be just so 2d and when some spoke and you asked for rumors the voice would change from example and old women to a young womens voice, the only dialog in the game that i found that character and passion in was Patrick Stewart as the Emperor but then its patrick stewart i dn't need to say anything else! and the graphic problems, i mean the game looks odd at 640 x 480 or is that the other way round and it was abit short compared to morrowind. but i did enjoy it, a great game just felt abit rushed to me.

I was overclocking my 850XT when playing it, and I still didn't get a genuinely good frame rate. It's absolutely nuts.

Hmmm, Gothic 3 looks like Oblivion but has an old-school Arena or Daggerfall feel to it.  Bring on the ridiculously beautiful women in scantily clad outfits weilding large phalic symbols!

There was one other thing about Oblivion that made it feel 'half finished', and that was the amount of items you could find that were useless as anything other than trade items. Various degrees of cups, plates, sewing equipment, blacksmithing equipment etc, I always felt that the original plan was to make all of those items useable in some way.

Nope they were just decoration in Morrowind and are just decoration in Oblivion.

They have a purpose though: house decoration.

Nah, that's just the ambience factor typical of TES games.  If you play Morrowind, they also have all these useless (for the game) items laying around.

Oblivion seems like a watered down version so the masses can understand it.

thats cause they designed it to be a console game, and they had the average console gamer in mind.

i hate how they destroy games like that.

Ah, I suppose it also gives the modders some material to use if they want to create expansions, I know there was a smithing one, but it didn't work at all well, I suspect there are others :)

Yes, you can spend many days amassing a huge spoon and earthenware collection in an empty, dusty shack in a tiny village in the arse end of nowhere.

You may be joking but there are players who actually do that.

I've heard of players who amassed such a huge quantity of paint brushes that they managed to climb the Imperial Tower with them!!!

That's impossible, surely?!

I just got into the game myself. First and formost the graphics are stunning. I downloaded a few mods for it to tweak things up a bit and the overall effect is that it's one of the most immersive games I've played. The dialogue is a bit odd, not much depth there I must admit - but the actual game world is colorful and at a glance seems fully functioning.

So yeah, I like it!

You use the console command to add item, and add paint brushes to your inventory, then you drop 'em.  Eventually you ought to be able to have enough stacked up to climb that high.
