Review More Oblivion reviews

<a href=http://www.loadedinc.com/>LoadedInc</a> and <a href=http://www.armchairgeneral.com/>Armchair General</a> have both posted reviews (<a href=http://www.loadedinc.com/review.php?temp_view=review.php&game=ElderScrollsIVOblivion&id=684>one</a> and <a href=http://www.armchairgeneral.com/articles.php?p=2587&page=1>two</a>) of that one game you may have heard of, the popular with the swords and trees and so on. The first rates it <b>9.6/10</b> and the second <b>91./10</b>. Here's some vile hyperbole from the Armchair General review because the LoadedInc one is pretty bland.<blockquote>This is likely the most difficult game I’ve had to review. Not because it was hard to get a grasp of the game or how I felt about it but because every time that I thought about starting in on writing the review I had this urge to go and play “just a tiny bit more” to get a “better feel” for the game. Six hours later, I’d have to take care of other business rather than write the review. Even now I’m wishing I had uninstalled the game just so I could get through this. Or maybe all those people gathering in the living room are finally here to give me the intervention I so desperately need to get away from my keyboard.</blockquote>Here, at last, is a plausible theory for the success of the TES games: chronic addiction.

Well, darn. Let's just give all of Bethesda some Nobel Prizes, already.

This guy is in for a nasty crash once he realizes there is nowhere to go after he is through.

Low replayability = bad for your addiction.
