It won't be hard at all, although you probably won't find the character models as pretty as you did when you first got it.

I also really miss radiant quests whenever I play that game. Now that I've finished the Mages Guild questline, there just isn't anything left to do for them. Kinda lame.

And yes, it's generally agreed Oblivion is the "worst" of the three, but that isn't really saying much when they're all quality games. Oblivion does have some great quests, although Cyrodiil itself is kind of uninspired in that game.


I know I'll catch flak for this, but I would like to see Oblivion redone with Skyrim's mechanics and engine. maybe on the NextBox.

Now we wait for the fanboys to tell me why my opinion is wrong.

Because it's not Morrowind, so it can't be good silly.

The PC version of Oblivion is fairly easy to go back to. There's a lot of things you can do with those spiffy mods.

You know, once you sort through all the anime porn mods.... Don't let that discourage you, though. There are plenty of amazing mods, fixes, changes, and overhauls. If you put enough time into looking, and not just on Nexus, you can find lots of things that make Oblivion pretty awesome.

>Implying I'd want to skip the anime porn mods.

I still go back occasionally. Whodunit? is still my favorite quest from any game I've ever played.


This times infinity!

I have a friend who loves Oblivion and keeps going back and forth between Skyrim and Oblivion and says Skyrim sucks. I go back to Morrowind after Skyrim, and while not having some things is a little frustration (mainly a neatly organized quest list) it's easy to go back. I'm expecting the graphics to be less pretty and to have to read a lot of text, but it's easy nonetheless. I can't imagine going from Skyrim to Oblivion is that hard considering they're a bit more similar to one another than Skyrim and Morrowind.

Morrowind is a really alien world which was awesome, with a good computer and some graphics mods this can look amazing! There is just the retarded thing of 'missing' a point-blank sword strike that will probably aggravate you... Oblivion was pretty uninspired imo, although the questlines were better than that of Skyrim, and Shivering Isles made up for the boring world that you got with the standard game. Skyrim's world is really amazing though, I still love to see all the mountains with the clouds and everything, it's so easy to just lose youself in the game. :)

The basic breakdown is this:

Oblivion's world just doesn't feel inspired. Everything is just so... samey. And thanks to the level scaling, exploring is even less rewarding. However, Oblivion's quests are some of the best in the series. The quests are where Oblivion really shines.

Mechanically, Skyrim fixed everything that was wrong with Oblivion. Level scaling isn't ridiculous, the leveling system is much more natural, and combat just feels better. Skyrim's world is also a lot more fun to explore, in part because of how some things can still surprise you and kick your ass.

Skyrim still has it's own flaws to worry about, though; the faction questlines have bad pacing, the game becomes too easy too soon, etc. Some people don't mind Oblivion's weaker gameplay and just love the quests, and that's totally cool.

When people play Morrowind, they know they're playing an old-school RPG. People who love Morrowind are people who are totally okay with dice roll combat, or the steep learning curve. But Oblivion has more modern gameplay, and it probably gets so much flak because Skyrim just does the "modern" thing better. But Skyrim and Morrowind have very different gameplay, so they're pretty much independent of each other.

Over the last 2 months I picked Skyrim back up and began enjoying it like never before. I eventually got bored and had no problem at all picking Oblivion back up. But I'm unnaturally adaptive so trust my opinion if you dare.
