I'd just like commentaries on the game. What do you think of it ? Is it better than Morrowind ? I just wondered because I just discovered Morrowind and IMO it's one of the best game ever, surely the best RPG game ever (just before Baldur's Gate). I probably will buy it soon, but I'd like to see what people think of it before.

Dude, if you thought Morrowind was good, Oblivion will blow your ass OUT OF THE WATER. No lie, truth be told.

I have the game on the X360 and I stopped playing 3 weeks ago. I got turned into a vampire and then it become all shitty to me. The cure quest is a piece of crap and I gave up. I'll probably continue playing in a while.

The only RPG that can really stand up to Oblivion is Morrowind. But they are different enough to make them difficult to compare. Morrowind is very impersonal, and large. It lacks the small details that Oblivion has. Granted, when Morrowind came out it was a technological marvel, but it's mostly because they put in stuff that didn't even have a purpose. I remember one quest inside a tomb could take forever, or it could take five minutes because they put so many useless subsections in the dungeon.

Oblivion is great because of it's detail though. You can buy a kitchen set for your house. People have daily routines. Everyone has a unique face. But I feel it was at the tradeoff in gameplay. Sure the combat is much more detailed then Morrowind, but it has a lot less quest (even though they are much more in depth quest). Morrowind had maybe 10 guilds/factions to join. Oblivion has 4 or 5. The Main Quest in Morrowind also took forever, and in four years of playing, I never had the drive to actually finish it.

Still, if you've got something that can run Oblivion you'll be hooked like a crack fiend. I knew one guy who did Adderol (or however it's spelled), and sat playing the game 16 hours straight. Personally I used to play it something like 8 hours a day when I first got it. It'll really immerse you.
