My Thoughts on Skyrim Vs Oblivion on PC

Skyrim vs Oblivion

The Elder Scrolls series has been out for 11 years now. As we all know, work on TES IV: Oblivion, began in 2002 and ended March 21 2006 so the graphics are a bit outdated. TES V: Skyrim however, was started soon after Oblivion's release and was released on October 11 2011.

Even though these 2 titles were released 5 years apart, one can't help but still compare the graphics and give Skyrim the win on that one. Although, technically, Skyrim is the better game as far as graphics and size are concerned a lot of TES fans still prefer Oblivion for their own personal reasons.

Note: I'm not a computer guru so please forgive me if my terminologies are a bit off.

5 reasons I prefer Skyrim

  1. The graphics are better (of course they are, 6 years is a long time)
  2. The map, in my opinion, is bigger and more detailed by default
  3. Although the mods are quite new compared to those of Oblivion, the better graphics and programming
  4. that came with vanilla Skyrim, enabled the Skyrim modding community to catch up fast on both quantity and quality.
  5. I like the idea of being a somebody (the big 'Hero'). In Oblivion the emperor's son was the hero and you were his lackey, so to speak. Now that a mod has been released to make guards respect you more, it got even better.

Mod talk: Skyrim vs Oblivion

I personally enjoy the immersion mods. Not just the physical immersion mods, but also the new magic, city, wild and dungeon immersion sounds. I know this should have been in the reasons listed above but I felt like making a long list would bore most readers :P

Oblivion also has some good mods seeing as the Oblivion modding community has been modding it for almost 8 years. One dragon mod I tried was not that good although it was flyable (as far as I know dragon in Skyrim are still earthbound).

Oblivion has more of a cartoon-like feel, in my opinion. Where as Skyrim looks a lot more realistic. Please keep in mind that I am not talking about their vanilla formats but rather the modded ones.

When running Oblivion on 1920x1080 HD vs Skyrim on that same format there's a huge difference... Now add the 2k mods, or maybe 4k? Again, Skyrim wins hands down.

I think the reason Oblivion doesn't feel that good to me is because it was the first Elder Scrolls game I ever played. I have no sense of Elder Scrolls nostalgia.

Skyblivion and Skywind mods are almost done, then I will finally be able to enjoy Oblivion and try Morrowind all from the world that is Skyrim.

There you have it, but don't let me ruin your fun. I advise you to try both and decide for yourself.
