I'm planning on picking up Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion today for my PS3 (I don't have a PC that could run it), and I'm looking for some advice or comments on the experience.
(1) Is the GOTY edition all that and a bag of potatoes? From what I've heard Oblivion is intimidatingly huge, so the additional quests don't have much appeal to me - but if there's any horrible bugs that version fixed, it may be well worth it to go that rout.
(2) From the vids I've seen, I think I could really enjoy being a melee class - I like the idea of hitting a button to raise my shield and block incoming attacks, but I'm not blind to the additional options that spellcasting would offer. I'm sure there's no 'best' class, so I guess my question is 'what did you find the most fun?' Can you have a blast the whole way through as a straight fighter, or is a warrior-mage rout a better bet?
Thanks for any advice!
