Obviously you pointed out you're in the minority, and I'm not attacking you or saying you're wrong, I'm just curious, what exactly is it about Oblivion that made you finish it twice? Or what is it about Skyrim that isn't "grabbing" you?
Can't really explain it. I know one HUGE factor for me is the removal of the spell crafting. Another, maybe I just don't like the mountain setting. Maybe having dragons made it too 'cliche' for my taste. Maybe I prefer more medieval settings. I don't know exactly what, all I know is that I just don't have any drive to play the game.
