Each rpg that comes out gets compared to this game as the standard.
Sadly so far, I only see the new games as lacking. This world is the most interactive game world I have ever seen in a game, and the sheer size of it is amazing. No other game has the complete freedom of choice and game play as Oblivion. I would pay double the price for a game as fun, in depth, and have the free choices that Oblivion has.
I wonder if there will ever be another game as good as this one. With each new title, I think high hopes, and then when I play the game the world doesn't seem to be as interactive and as realistic as Oblivion.
Maybe one there will be another game that will compare, and possibly surpass. For now but to wait...
