From the creators of Morrowind...
its an american style RPG. you basically build your character.. race, gender, stats, etc (very in depth) and go in and have a HUGE adventure. if you ever played morrowind youd understand.
from what i hear this game is going to be sweet as hell if you like RPGs or adventure games (it is very long and slow paced though so maybe its only for the ones who think they will truly appreciate its grandure).
Oblivion features a groundbreaking new AI system, called Radiant AI, which gives non-player characters (NPCs) the ability to make their own choices based on the world around them. They'll decide where to eat or who to talk to and what they'll say. They'll sleep, go to church, and even steal items, all based on their individual characteristics. Full facial animations and lip-synching, combined with full speech for all dialog, allows NPCs to come to life like never before.
Oblivion is a single-player game that takes place in Tamriel's capital province, Cyrodiil. You are given the task of finding the hidden heir to a throne that sits empty, the previous emperor having been killed by an unknown assassin. With no true Emperor, the gates to Oblivion (the equivalent of hell in the world of Tamriel) open, and demons begin to invade Cyrodiil and attack its people and towns. It's up to you to find the lost heir to the throne and unravel the sinister plot that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel.
it comes out the 20th (4 days).
one funny note though.. i was keeping an eye on this game for a while and i remember when it first started they created the needs/wants AI where it did what it wanted. they want to test their newly programmed AI and the world basically turned into a civil war. people would get hungry, steal, get caught, not want to go to jail, fight, the guard would kill the civilians, other guards would see the guard killing and fight him, and this happened over the entire world. kinda funny if you ask me haha.
