I am currently re-reading The Magic of Recluse for what must be the fifth time. I am blessed (or cursed, as the case may be) with a really bad memory. So when I read a book I’ve already read, it is still quite an enjoyable experience for me. I sometimes remember some of the main plot points, but often I just forget almost everything and reading an old book is like reading a new one. Anyway, this book is a fantasy book set in a well-thought-out fantasy realm. And the book, incidentally, is where I got the name “Blackstaffer” from.
So anyway. All this to say that I’m interested in fantasy related things.
I saw this preview of the Oblivion Shivering Isles expansion, and I got to thinking. Now that I don’t update HDBlog.net anymore, I’ve got more time on my hands. Why don’t I give this whole single-player RPG thing a try. Ages ago I tried Ultimate III (or was it Ultimate IV) on my Atari 800XL, and frankly I thought it was quite boring. But I’m a big fan of fantasy books, so maybe I’ll like a fantasy RPG.
From the preview below, and other things I’ve read and seen, Oblivion is supposed to be a pretty good game. Is there anybody reading this that played Oblivion as their first RPG, and enjoyed it?
