I started loading Oblivion about 11am yesterday morning. I have only had five hours of sleep.. besides the sleep I think I have spent approximately another four outside the game. Got to eat and shower.
So that is roughly twenty two hours in the game and I have not yet gotten the urge to find the long lost son. But I have joined the Thieves Guild, the Mages Guild, and The Dark Brotherhood.
About mid-day today I started to wonder why my character had yet to level up. I was stuck maxed out at level one. Like me in real-life, Tuco the Argonian Assassin (my in game persona) had not gotten much sleep. I found a bed and took a nap, gained a level.. slept again, gained a level.. (repeated until I was level five, LOL!)
Upon waking after my first nap I met a stealth dark robed figure who reminded me of a Sith Lord. He liked my lust for blood and ask me to join the Dark Brotherhood. Sahweeet!
Clearly the best RPG I have ever played. I know that is saying a lot since I like many others have just scratched the surface. I just have to believe if the quality is this good all the way through this game is an instant classic.
I got to roll the Brotherhood has requested I assassinate some old codger.
