You have the task of finding the hidden heir to a throne that sits empty. Tamriel's previous emperor has been slain, and with no true ruler the gates to Oblivion open and demons begin to invade the people and towns of the empire. 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.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is now my favorite PC game, and I would go so far as to consider it the best PC game of all time (then again, I haven't really played that many PC games until recently). It's a great game for those who previously liked Nintendo favorites like Zelda. Being a huge Zelda fan myself, I feel right at home with Oblivion. To start, the game's world is gigantic. If it weren't for the game's map, it would be extremely easy to get lost in its beautiful world. One might think that a world so large in a video game would be rather empty, but it's really quite the opposite. Besides a main Imperial city and seven or eight other memorable towns, the world is littered with dungeons, abandoned fortresses, castles, caves, grottos, and more. If the game was just about exploring the world, it would be an entertaining adventure all in itself, but it doesn't stop there. The world looks beautiful too. Even today, in 2012, it visually stands up to a lot of games out there. I would definitely consider it a game with "good graphics." Whether it be the giant glowing mushrooms or sparkling galaxies in the sky at night, or the snow-capped peaks and rich green forests and grasslands, the world of Oblivion is as good looking as it is fun.
