The secret to having fun in Oblivion is...

There's even someone in the thread giving tips on how to roleplay, like going to the church to pray, and making friends with the priest. He's offered to help other players find their roles. Such as paladin. Or elf paladin. Someone should have him make a diplomat character that enjoys probing the many varied NPCs of Cyrodill.

If the dialogue sucks, it's because you people have no imagination.

Gold. Super mario is the best racing game just use your imagination.

Yeah, it's cluttered with contradicting hyperbole presented in circle jerk form. I can't believe I spent so much time there.

Next they will be saying "just pretend that it's a video game!"

Took me a few minutes to figure out what the fuck "dilouges" are.

If this thread is some sort of contest about finding the best thread ever on the internet, there should be a rule forbidding to go to the ESF. I seriously don't see the difference between that and cheatting.

But they're so... so... cute at the ESF - flailing around, deperately trying to justify the RPG-tag that Bethesda plastered on the side of Oblivion. For their next trick, they'll prove that black is white and get killed the next time they use a zebra-crossing*

I think it's very appropriate that "ESF" sounds so... Myers-Briggs.

ESFs never seem to lose their sense of wonder. One might say they see life through rose-colored glasses. It's as though they live at the edge of a looking-glass world where mundane objects come to life, where flora and fauna take on near-human qualities.

ESF children often exhibit this in a 'Calvin and Hobbes' fashion, switching from reality to fantasy and back again. With few exceptions, it is the ESF child who readily develops imaginary playmates (as with Anne of Green Gables's "bookcase girlfriend"--her own reflection) and whose stuffed animals come to life like the Velveteen Rabbit and the Skin Horse:

"...Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand..." (the Skin Horse)

ESFs have the ability to see good in almost anyone or anything. Even for the most unlovable the ESF is wont to have pity.

Of course, pseudo-psychology is intended to sound accurate when applied to anything, so what do I know? ;)

That is a funny thread, I'm actually laughing with them for a change. I didn't realise so many of them have become so disillusioned.

Seeing all the folks on the TES forums becoming imbittered is a beautiful experience.

Ahh.. Oblivion is a more streamlined and dumbed down RPG compared to the other Elder Scroll games, but it is still an OK game. Not as good as say Fable (I reference fable because it and OB have alot in common) but still its good.
All what OB misses are bouncing XP balls.

This guy speaks the truth, and no one listens? Kinda weird - I know there are some CRPGers over at the ES forums.
