So, I decided to start a thread because I just started playing this game again. I saw it on Steam Summer Sale for a measly $10 and figured "why not?" because I only own the original collector's edition and none of the DLC, and it's nice to get the GOTY version which fixes some bugs and what-not, AND I haven't touched Oblivion since Skyrim came out. I managed to mod it up a bit, got the Oblivion Reloaded, a Texture Pack, and a Character Overhaul (because dude, some of the faces in Oblivion were simply atrocious). I didn't go REAL heavy on mods, because I wanted as close to vanilla as I could get, just... modernized in terms of graphics and maybe a little gameplay. So anyways, I'm surprised at how much fun I'm having with this. Perhaps its nostalgia, perhaps it's been enough time that it is almost like a fresh experience because I don't remember very much of the game, but it's been pretty fun! I've been noticing a few things I miss from Skyrim, but yet things I wish Skyrim had. First, I'll have to start off with my UI complaints.... I don't get why, in 2006, Bethesda still felt that there needn't be a "CLOSE ALL WINDOWS" button. Pick up a book? You MUST click the "Close" button. Want to get out of dialogue/shop interface? Gotta click the close button. Can't hit escape, oh no. Is there a mod for this, does anybody know? I'd love to install it, if so. Second, I'll have to wonder... why did they not make complex dungeon traps in Skyrim? The spiked ceiling deathtraps, the trapdoor floors... the enemies hidden behind false walls... in Skyrim, you just got spiked grates and hanging heavy objects. So anyways, just wanted to make a thread to talk about this game since I'm actively playing it. In my playthrough, thusfar I haven't gone real far in, like a couple hours... I've explored the ruins right next to the exit to the sewers, a fort and a cave on the way to Cheydinhal... combat is much easier than I remember, everything dies in one hit to a sneak attack arrow. lol. EDIT: Will also note that it is nice to see actual foilage now instead of just snow and barren tundra grasslands and yellow/orange leaves.
