Aye, Oblivion is a good'un.
But I have to be careful talking about older games. I start thinking about them, and then obsessing, and before you know it, I'm playing them even if I have another game on the go. Right now I'm playing, in no particular order, Skyrim (haven't actually played for a couple of months but I'm by no means done with the game), Darkstone (which, you know, I can leave for years and come back to some other time), Legend of Grimrock, which continues to be great, though difficult, and now Might and Magic 8, which I just downloaded from GOG.
(As a somewhat irrelevant aside, I do love the MM games, at least six through eight. I love everything about them, the silliness, the huge worlds, finding stuff lying around everywhere (I mean, little piles of gold just lying there for the taking? I'm there!), and the music, the incredible music. I just played through a Temple of Eep and the setting is ridiculous, the enemies are ridiculous, the premise of the quest is ridiculous, and yet the music is magnificent, a rich and classical orchestral piece. Wonderful juxtaposition.)
But now, you see, you've got me thinking about Oblivion, and I do love that game. I'll be pining for the fjords before I know it, and back in there, playing five games at once.
