  1. Hello, guys. I have a question about the game Oblivion. I know lot of people are talking about the game that it's a really good game and must buy and all that. But I have never ever played any RPG game in my life, and I have no idea how rpg game works. But I am interested in playing Oblivion so how hard is it to learn playing rpg game? So should I buy ovlivion or not? Thanks for your help.

    I hadn't really played any RPGs until I played The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind (the game that is before oblivion in the series) and I loved that game so much. It got me hooked. I love the freedom they give you. I played at the same time as a friend of mine, and it was like we were playing two totally different games. Our experiences were so different. He was a stealthy wood-elf in the thieves guild and I was a sword wielding imperial in the fighters guild. He stuck to the cities and I ran around in the country. We'd try to talk about the game, but we hadn't seen any of the same things! The main quest is only a small portion of the game, and when not doing it, you can basically do whatever you want.

    Oblivion is a very demanding game in terms of hardware, but if your system can run it, I would say go for it. I bought it and I'm still just getting started, but I'm having a great time.

    It's a fun game, but as already mentioned- it does require a modern to semi-modern PC, so be sure you have a PC powerful enough to play it first.

    As far as RPG's go, there is really nothing difficult to them. You make a character, pick gender, race and appearance.. then pick what you want them to be, like a fighter/warrior, magic user, wizard, rogue, assassin, ranger/archer or any combination of things. These determine how you play your character- be it swinging a sword and shield with heavy armor, or ducking back in cloth while casting fireballs, or sneaking around in the shadows backstabbing.. or using a bow & arrow... etc.etc.

    From there, it's all about exploring a rich, beautiful, HUGE world.. getting involved in story/plot elements, taking on quests/doing things, and building up your character. As you play, you get experience, your character grows stronger and gets newer/better gear and access to new abilities as he/she grows.
