I started some time in 2010. Probably. It may have been Christmas of the previous year. Anyway I voted 2010.

Nope, it was 2009. I forgot about the old PlayStation dying. I guess I started on the new one in 2010.

But which second was it at? I need to know if it was closer to the 30th or the 31st minute. You can´t tell us that? For shame, mr Wyrd. I expected more from you wacko.gif

2009 here, with PC GOTY a blissful $20US. Oblivion was the first Elder Scrolls title I did not buy and play at release. The reason? My then primary PC was some years old by then and far below minimum requirements. It was just as well really, as I was heavily into MMORPGs at the time. By 2009 I had a newish self-assembled computer. Online gaming had lost much of its allure. I credit Oblivion with breaking me of my MMO addiction (and reestablishing my single-play RPG addiction). My Everquest 2 account remained active for another year, but doubt I logged on more than a time or two for relatively short visits. It is fitting that Oblivion be the game that saw an end to my love-fest with MMOs, since Daggerfall was the game I abandoned for them upon joining the internet and discovering the beta to Meridian59 in 1997. (Yes, I ceased online gaming a few months to play Morrowind at release.)

I think mine was May 3 2006. I made the thread I'd linked previously probably two days after playing. Don't knoe the exact time though. laugh.gif wacko.gif

I bought my first copy sometime in late spring or early summer of 2006 - not long after release - but my first save for my first significant character is from August of 2009.

When I first got the game, I only played it for three days. On the first day, I made it most of the way through the tutorial dungeon. On the second day, I went up to the Market District and sold loot and shopped and stuff, and started Unfriendly Competition. I got stalled on that - I did all of the normal RPG things - talked to people, looked for notes or notices or any other sort of clues - and couldn't figure out what to do after getting stonewalled by Thoronir. On the third day, thinking maybe I missed something, I checked my journal, and that was when I discovered that the "journal" wasn't a journal at all, but an in-game walkthrough that told me what "I" had "decided" to do next. I shut the game off right then and there and didn't play it again.

I got the GOTY edition for Christmas in 2007 from a relative who knew I liked computer RPGs and didn't know I already owned the original game and disliked it so much that I'd uninstalled it. I went ahead and installed it, but didn't play it much. I'd try it every once in a while, when I had nothing else to occupy my time, but it was probably at least another year, and an awful lot of modding, before I played it with any frequency, and it wasn't until I got to the point that I not only could ignore or mod out the stupid bits like the walkthrough journal and the magic radar, but knew the game well enough to be able to just use Beth's often poorly designed quests as a basis for my own roleplaying, that I started to enjoy it and actually played it long enough to bother hanging onto a character.

Me too. I called in "sick" to work the next morning because I wanted to keep playing. I do get what gpster is talking about though, about the in-game walkthrough. It's designed for people who want to b34t the g4m3 as quickly as possible, but offers no further options for those of us who wish to think our way through.

No, but I just can´t pass up any opportunity to make a reference biggrin.gif

I didn´t actually do that but boy did I consider it! laugh.gif

I was so occupied playing it in the evenings though that I seriously neglected my otherwise thorough tooth brushing. I made such a poor/hasty job for months that my dentist started to complain tongue.gif

I started playing about two months ago. I want to keep playing, but I can never find the time between FO4, Skyrim, and bingeing the X Files.

ha ha I also binged X-files a couple years ago. Netflix, man!

What platform are you on, Cain? PS3? Xbox? PC? I'd also be overwhelmed if I discovered all these Beth games at once.

I bought the entire X-Files series, movies, and new 6 episode mini-series on blu-ray a few months ago. I am still watching it (about half way through).

Going backwards, eh? Just like I did; started with Oblivion and went to Morrowind tongue.gif

I'm on 360 for Skyrim and Oblivion, PS4 for Fallout, and my sad laptop is enough to play Morrowind.

My discovery of Bethesda games actually started with Skyrim in 2011, and then went Morrowind, Fallout 4, Oblivion.

Netflix is awesome, lol. We actually plan on cutting cable soon, and going Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu only.
