I played all the way through the original Oblivion release, no patches, over the course of a month or so and never hit a single bug. I ran into bugs in Gothic 3 in the first minutes I played and then almost continuously afterward. I was willing to put up with them, to a point, because I could see the shiny gem of a game buried in there. But I eventually gave up on Gothic 3 after a few weeks hoping that some day it would be fixed up. And my experience with both games is not unusual.
Eventually, I did buy the CE of Gothic 3. And playet it for maybe 10-20 hours, no crashes whatsoever. The combat took a little getting used to, but was much nicer implemented, than in the previous games, at least from my point of view.
Of course, when I bought the CE, it was patched to maybe 1.06 or so, so the game breaking bugs were mostly gone.

I don't know if it matters whether or not I have the Gothic 3 CE version or not in terms of gameplay. bugs etc. ??
