I have Skyrim and it is a great game. I have platinum trophy already and now I am not finding as many things to do now. I know that Dawnguard is coming out but it is the same price (unless they reduce it because of all the stuff ps3 users had to go through) as Oblivion GOTY. Is Oblivion worth playing since I've beaten Skyrim or should I not even bother with it?
Although you will find the graphics a bit primitive by Skyrim's standards, Oblivion definitely holds up well. In many ways, I still consider Oblivion to be a superior game when compared to Skyrim. Sure, there is no dual wielding, no skill perks (not directly anyway) and no Shouts or Dragons, but Oblivion has spell making, better skills in general (such as Acrobatics) and it has a Chameleon spell which is essential for any stealth based character.
Plus the environment is much better in Oblivion. You can go from the jungles to snowy mountains, from great forests to rolling hill. Add to that, the strange world which is the Shivering Isles DLC an you've got plenty off things to see.
In my experience, the GOTY edition is fairly problem free, especially when compared to Skyrim. You may notice a small dialogue glitch or clipping issue, but nothing like what I've heard about Skyrim on the PS3.
I will warn you of one thing though. The PS3 GOTY edition does have the infamous Vampire glitch. Should you choose to become a vampire, you will find yourself unable to ever turn back. There is a questline to cure your vampirism, which you will be unable to complete. Just be forewarned. Still, that is a minor issue really as being a vampire isn't much of a problem.
Hell yes you should. I love both games and its hard to chose which is my favorite. It is different keep in mind but overall there are a huge amount of similarities. I liked the faction and main quests (excluding the theives guild) way better in oblivion. Ive played through it many times. Shadowmere is indestructable. If you liked skyrim which by the platinum I assume you did I can say with 98% certainty you will love Oblivion.
Well yeah.... with the pc there are so many game commands. I can get level 83 with every weapon and armour in the game in about 50 min. Thats not to say it isnt fun. One day Ill buy a Elder scrolls for the PC. I would like to buy a PC just for gaming first though. All the mods and console comands are fun (my ex stepsister had it and I played once). It just feels more rewarding to me to beat it on a system with no exploits/console commands/ and cheat.
