Yeah, we've had this discussion about Oblivion a billion times. It was a shitty RPG, so stop calling it one. Yes, I can understand why people that ran out expecting Planescape would feel duped, but by the time many here bought it its RPG shortfallings were well known.
I just wanted a fun game. I expected an RPG. I got a top-notch action adventure game. I loved the crap out of it. Skyrim should be the same. Poor RPG mechanics (which barely sound like they exist at all.) Great action adventure mechanics.
