Excellent review. I actually enjoy how it is really a running comparison to Skyrim. Personally, I'll take Fallout 3 over Skyrim or Oblivion any day. However, this review makes me want to get back into the EDS universe.

Thanks a lot. Yeah, that's the only way I could figure out how to make an Oblivion review relevant today -- compare and contrast it to the newer Elder Scrolls game.

I liked this and Skyrim more than Fallout 3, but New Vegas might be above at least one of them. I think that game fleshed things out more, as far as giving you a busy world with tons of things to do. I'm still fairly early in the game (just reached Mr. House in New Vegas) and only seen part of the world, but it just feels vast. I just really like how it kinda balances the line between Eastern and Western styles of RPG by putting various classes of monster in different places, so you're kinda directed where to go in the early going and have to build up to explore various locations, instead of having the game (for the most point) be as difficult as you can handle at any time and place.

I'm not afraid to die because I am invincible
Viva la muerte, that's my goddamn principle
