In all the discussions regarding Oblivion being better or worse than Skyrim, I never see mentioned the Oblivion gates. Well, to me they are immensely sporting! First of all, graphically, an Oblivion gate is simply awesome to behold. Seen from a distance they're terrifying, then you get closer and the very sky changes, becoming altered as if you're already inside. Inside, it's a compelling vision of hell. Skyrim certainly has no analog to this. So now, I find that all I want to do the past few days when I play, is crash Oblivion gates! I'm only level 10, but there are gates everywhere! Including Kvatch, I've probably closed 9 or 10. Good stuff can be found within fleshy pods, and I make fair coin from collecting fire salts and Daedra hearts. I made a special frost spell specifically to deal with flame atronachs, and summon my own flame atronach to assist in dealing with everything else. I'm an expert in conjuration, yet can't seem to find a 'summon frost atronach' spell. Anyway, I'm a bit disappointed that the realms repeat so often. One particular layout, I've traversed 3 or 4 times now... But I'd like to hear from others regarding Oblivion gates. Did you initially enjoy them as much as I currently do? Or did you hate them? I know I'm bound to get sick of them, but for now I just look forward to crashing the next one!
