Oblivion Conclusion: Why I Missed The Mark

oblivionmeme.jpg

Oh there are a lot of reasons I could list outside of the obvious. Here's the best of:

-School
-Work
-Other Games

But it's that last one that stings the most. As a gaming enthusiast I find myself amassing games on a weekly basis. Xenogears just came out for the PSN. Snapped that up. I'm only 50% through Stacking and Bionic Commando Re-Armed 2, and I just picked up the Grin 2008 Bionic Commando on the cheap. It's a "Boo Hoo" kind of moment to admit that I just play too many games to get around to one I even want to play, but there were a few things I learned about Oblivion in the end that made me realize: I can take my time on this game. And when Skyrim comes out, maybe I'll be too busy with Deus Ex: 3 at that time to get around to finishing it too.

Oblivion was just...it got to a point that I summed up in the meme above. I was not really enjoying the struggle anymore. Any gamer knows that once that happens the magic just dies. After this, I'm giving Xenogears a try. Right now I've clocked three hours in it, let's see how far I get.

Stay tuned for some badass GDC coverage next week!

What a wash out this series turned out to be. Such a shame.

The best thing about Oblivion is that it really doesn't matter if you ever finish. The main quest is fairly lackluster - what's awesome about the game is all the fun you can have doing other things.

I still fire the game up every now and then (and I bought it at launch), just to try out something insane in the spellmaker and murder a town full of people.

There are actually quests, however many years later, that I just never bothered with. I don't think I've done any Fighters Guild stuff, or Knights of the Nine. I'm saving those for a rainy day sometime in 2016.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
