Oblivion has been and continues to be a fascinating game for me. I know full well that some people claim to have completed the main quest in as little as a couple of days, but I’m now up to over 70 hours of play time…and I’m still not finished.
The main quest isn’t hard and, in fact, it’s arguable that its easier to complete if you do it quickly. Oblivion “scales” your foes as your character goes up in level- so if you work on a quest when you are level 5 your opponents will all be around the same level as you. If you wait until you are 20th level, your opponents will have “kept up”…and although this may sound like the challenge is the same, the powers (spells, items, and so forth) at higher levels are (in my opinion) more challenging
to deal with.
So how is the game keeping me busy? Well, I’ll give a few examples, including my most significant accomplishment to date…
