Of all the gaming disappointments I had in 2006 Oblivion kinda stands out. The others (Sid Meiers Railroads, Medieval 2 Total War, Gothic 3, Neverwinter Nights 2) were bugfests and sometimes instances of developers biting off more than they could chew.

Oblivion wasnt. It might well be the most bug-free version 1.0 I've played this century. It looks as good as any of the others listed on my PC, and unlike any of the other games mentioned I get a smooth experience at maxed out settings. Unlike the others its not a "nice try"…

Yet I hate it more than any of the others (possibly except for Railroads). Bethsofts concept has strayed too far from my ideal RPG to be interesting. Presentation and things like AI schedules are vast improvements, but the multitude of quests and the choices to be made that I had in past TES games were removed.
