I played Oblivion first. I put probably 20 or so hours into it, then got stuck. I think I was over-leveled or something, plus I really wasn't very good at combat, probably because I usually use 3rd person view, which apparently has problems with it. Anyway i kept dying against the same Berzerker Goblin or whatever it was. I started a new character and put probably 10 more hours into that one, then I just kind of got bored with it. When I got Skyrim, probably a year later, I figured I'd never play Oblivion again and uninstalled it. But lately I've been thinking about giving it another try, now that I've gotten a better hang for how that combat system works. I don't like the annoying character creation and leveling setup, but I think I can still have some fun with it.
