    I wish they would remaster oblivion

  • drpacman579

    Oblivions cities are better... Much better

  • Kairyuu


  • nsge

    Me: Just killed a dragon and saved the whole city(used magic by accident)Every guard: "You have committed crimes against Skyrim and her people. What say you in your defense?"

  • BiccLasagna

    Even the loading screen is better.

  • Kai Huizing

    Skyrim has no arena :(

    I remember this one time while playing Oblivion. I was like level 8 and I found a troll. I knew i was outmatched, but I had just gotten a new sword that i wanted to test out. So, as I thought about how stupid it probably was, I charged the troll. We went back and forth in between the underside of the damaged fort and on top of it's crumbling walls. For every hit I landed on it, the troll landed 2 more on me. I had to start blocking every single shot in order to stagger him, or he wouldve made quick work of me. My thief character wasn't used to this kind of beating. I was using everything I had; every potion, even the few spells I I had. About halfway through, another fight started between me and my own stamina. I began to do no damage against the beast. Still, I refused to back down. The battle literally lasted for about 10 minutes. We both fought hard, but in the end, I was the one left standing. I had barley any health left, I couldn't even see the red on my health bar. I paused the game and just started laughing about how amazing the fight was. That was over a year ago, and I still remember it like it happened yesterday

    OMG when you said that Skyrim had a tone of urgency and impending doom for every quest, everything just made sense. I love Skyrim but whenever I play it I feel like there is no lightheartedness and the overall gameplay & graphics was darker than Oblivion, even tho in Oblivian you literally had to go thru portals and in to a hell like dimension.

  • Chiko Loco

    The worst thing in Skyrim is how you start the game. There is no development of your character. You simply start as the most powerful dude. In Oblivion you literally started from the bottom. It doesn't matter where you've started. Best example is the Arena or the mages guild. The blademaster even made fun of you after requesting for a fight. And from fight to fight he respected you more and more. To join the mages guild you had to obtain a recommendation from all mages guilds. In Skyrim you just have to perform a spell.

  • Barf O

    "You know, if you've got the aptitude, you should join the Mage's College in Winterhold."But...but....I am the archmage....

  • Pavel Hranáč

    100% agree with all of yours points.My addition: The world in Oblivion seemed much more alive.In Skyrim everything is static. Everybody pretty much works outside of their house. You never see a guy from the city go out to the fields. Only generic npcs can be met on the roads. But who would want to travel when 60% of Skyrim's population are bandits, right? Then 35% are generic soldiers or Thalmor and only like 5% are actual people. And most of these aren't even interesting!

  • Zachary Boyd

    One thing Oblivion did better than skyrim - Leveled loot.You find 30% reflect magic shield and it just works. Or damage attribute dagger which you tuck for that one strong enemy.In Skyrim you find another blessed war axe, couple of rubies and some gold… Another thing Oblivion did better than skyrim - scrolls.In Oblivion, they are numerous and start as low as 4 septims for a piece. This allows you to have massive arsenal at your fingertips without hassle. Skyrim? Early game you save them because they are loot, late game you sell them because they are useless now.One more thing Oblivion did better than skyrim - towns.In Oblivion, you remember each city as something. Skingrad is city of nutters and wine, Anvil is anchorage, Bravil is depression, Imperial city is mushroom farm, Bruma is city of cold and nords… Skyrim? Dawnstar, Morthal, WInterhold part without university? Boringly SAME!

  • Ubeogesh

    A very trivial thing that I prefer in Oblivion: an actual quest log, rather than list of check boxes paired with map markers.

    3 Main things Oblivion did better than Skyrim imo:Character focusBeautiful landscapeAmbient music

  • etherraichu

    I got the Imperials and Stormcloaks to agree to a temporary truce, mediated by the Grey Beards, who hadn't interacted with skyrim directly in centuries. I even got the Blades and the Thalmor to hold off killing each other for a bit.I went and found an Elder Scroll and used it to see through time, to learn a Shout no one had heard in more than 3000 years.I used Whiterun's place to capture a dragon, which I then rode to a hidden Dragon CUlt Temple, and soon after, into a protal to Sovngarde. The place most people have to die before they can even hope to see it.While there, I defeated Alduin, who could've destroyed the entire world. The last time Alduin threatened people, the only way to win was to create a rift in time and force him into it. Alduin is nearly a god, and it wasnt easy, but I finally defeated him.After reluctantly leaving the strikingly beautiful Sovngarde, I took a trip back to Whiterun, to tell my good friend Jarl Balgruuf the Greater, the man who helped me capture a dragon using his palace, that the threat is finally over."Fancy robes. You a wizard or something?"

  • Allan M

    Couldn't agree with you more! I hate that in Skyrim everything you do seems to have no effect on the world, people don't recognize your achievements!

  • George Hennon

    I remember on a certain quest in Skingrad you had to speak to someone who was currently in jail. And to get in without the guard being suspicious, you had to get hired on as a lowly servant, the "Slop Drudge." I remember walking around the town after the quest and the guards actually said things like "Get to work Slop Drudge" and things like that. I just thought it was really cool

  • Brad

    I love both, but I've put more hours in skyrim. I find myself going back to skyrim over oblivion.

  • felipe silva

    Spell creation in morrowind and oblivion was rly nice

  • SylentSpecter

    I, am the dragonborn. One of the last remaining in centuries.I am the leader of the dark brotherhood and the listener of the night mother.I am the leader of the thieves guild and proud nightingale of nocturnal.I am the savior of skyrim, and slayer of alduin.I am a member of the companions, and one within the circle.I am thane of all nine holds.I am the savior of solsthiem, and have defeated the first known dragonborn.I have gone to sovenguard and back.I wear armor made from the bones and scales of dragons.I am the chief of the stormcloak rebellion, and slayer of the imperial leader."So you can cast a few spells, am I supposed to be impressed?

  • dokso

    I died when you said "I am the guildmaster you brick!"

  • Diablerie Tandino

    I'm late to see this video, but I am soooo glad someone acknowledged one of my biggest pet peeves about skyrim. Your character just doesn't matter. No matter what they do in the world, you're just treated as another nobody. You can be Thane of every hold, a nightingale and master of the thieves guild, the listener of the dark brotherhood, a champion in the companions or the arch mage of the mage college, and you're a nobody. Even in the aforementioned guilds you're not even really acknowledged as the leader. You're still treated like some schmuck who just walked in the door. In Dawnguard you can bring down Harkon who is supposed to be this super powerful vampire, and the people left over in the castle still treat you like an errand person. If you joined the dawnguard, Isran refuses to even aid in your quest to stop the very thing he's apparently been planning for for years. He even threatens you because serana shows up at his doorstep. You're just made to feel as if you have no effect on the world. Like you can spend an entire quest line stopping harkon from blotting out the sun, and then 2 minutes after you defeat him, you do the very thing he wanted to and...nothing happens, no repercussion. Every skyrim citizen acts like a darkened sun is just a minor inconvenience in their daily routine. If it wasn't for mods, bethesda games of late to me would just be worthless trash.

  • Fun Games

    I miss crafting spells, items, potions, armor, and weapons. Crafting and spell casting in Oblivion was way better.

  • o tejas o

    My 2 cents worth :1] I LOVE Skyrim's game concept , but the game play and programming suuuuuuucks !2] as massive a game as Skyrim is , should of taken around 10 years to fully program it correctly - not crap it out in 4 -5 just to make $$3] Oblivion had GOOD game features that were left out in Skyrim for whatever reason ?? a] could use a sword or dagger under water to fend off the slaughterfish b] when you went under water , there was an indicator to let you know when your oxygen level would run out c] there was also an indicator to let you know when a potion or effect would end d] you have two hands , why can't you wear two rings

  • martin hyrule

    Oblivion is one of my favorite PC games, When I reinstall windows or got a New computer, Installing Oblivion is the first thing I do (and then civilization), I know the game has its flaws and the graphics are not the best, but I just love the game-play, the experience, for me the whole is more than the sum of its parts. I never get bored of this game, It's huge, full of interesting characters with interesting stories... and the mods, don't get me started on the mods, there are some amazing mods out there, we have some of the best modding communities in the gaming industry period, the game always feel fresh or... you can make your own mods with the help of the community, the possibilities are endless.

  • rokpepeshogun

    The story of oblivion made skyrim a success cause everybody thought Bethesda could only level up their game and moddingcommunity but they made 4 steps back into Arena WITH microtransactions and creation club.. oh and Fallout 76 is a big mess.

  • TheMajesticBlair

    i find skyrim to have a better navagation system

  • Uncle Fester

    2 things,Acknowledge my achievements....but I don't have to be the leader of EVERYTHING maybe just some...Also you are correct, in Oblivion you can tell the difference of races better.

  • Oggy2295

    5:06 "A quest that is light-hearted and fun" flock of sheep drop dead

  • R Gar

    Skyrim fell short because the world didn’t recognise all the feats you accomplished. If I’m going to invest time in saving the college of winterhold and become the Archmage, I want the characters at the college to recognise me as their leader and not just a student. How Bethesda thought this was ok is beyond me, it literally makes character progression non existent as you are no more accomplished in the game world at the end when compared to your character at the start.I could kill someone’s wife, they’d witness it, but after I’ve paid my bounty they act like nothing has happened. Wtf? Don’t add these features into the game if they aren’t going to have long term effects on your progression. It still makes me laugh my head off that in these games you can kill 100+ soldiers in a city, pay off a bounty and just return there like you did nothing.

  • RenniganEagle

    Guild in disarray and build it up. Guild at the peak of power and spiral into disarray. Literally Skyrim.

  • Golden Will

    in most rpgs I play as a spellsword. skyrim, oblivion, morrowind, Spellswords just fit very well for me

  • John Duff

    I agree with a lot of the stuff but idk i just enjoy skyrim more

  • Ashley Burton

    I like how in Oblivion the main quest doesn't shoehorn you into being any particular chosen one with special powers; you are just a nameless agent.

  • Zackary Warner

    The thing I like more in Oblivion than in Skyrim is Oblivion. Not the other dimension, but Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. It's just a better game. Oblivion >= Morrowind > Skyrim.

  • Gen Rose

    I agree with everything. But I honestly loved the Oblivion dungeons compared to skyrims. There were cool sunken forts, poisonous chambers, idk a whole bunch of stuff. But they were fun to explore. Skyrim's though, were lame and boring.

  • Wiledwired Weasel

    "Adding to my theory that the dragonborn was never actually born." Wut.

  • Death Atlantic

    Dude, when I first played Skyrim back when it was released, after a month or so, I had this feeling that something was off, but I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was. I think you really hit the nail on the head with this video, and answered my question that I've been asking myself for a long time: "Why is it that Oblivion was so much better?"The only answer I had up to the point I watched this video was that the quests were subpar in comparison. Playing a Dark Brotherhood quest in Skyrim vs in Oblivion, it's blatantly obvious how much more love went into the latter. Every quest had a unique twist, and there was a bonus if you could do something a certain way. Great video!

  • Vedran K

    I helped to win a war for imperials and guy in Solitude told me to get lost :'( Also cities in oblivion actually look like cities while cities in skyrim look like vilages...Dawnstar litteraly has abouth 10 hay houses and thats a city??


    I recently picked up oblivion, which I haven't played since I was like... 11, after playing pretty much only skyrim for the past several years. I have no nestolgia attached to oblivion, I was probably awful at it back then and didnt get far...The only thing I like better in skyrim is the menus. Everything else in oblivion just makes skyrim look like a mess. How does skyrims wolves and dogs NOT look like actual wolves and dogs? Why is skyrim's color scheme so bland? How come skeevers don't look as nice in skyrim?Don't get me wrong, skyrim is still a pretty nice looking game, but oblivion feels like an actual world that exists. Fighting through the oblivion gates to shut them is a wonderful experience, while fighting through the likes of the black books or skyrims crypts just feels like never ending sameness.Like, WHY? WHY isn't skyrim better than oblivion? What went wrong? What happened that skyrim became so bland? And WHY did no one ever tell me how awesome oblivion is?!

  • KillerKikyo5

    You made good points that i never thought of, even though I’ve always liked Oblivion more. Oblivion is so much fun, no matter what my mood is.Also, i replayed Oblivion quests and was shocked by how much detail and creativity they put into them.

  • EOMinecraftGuy

    At 2:47 there is no dark elf, it bosmer altmet altmer

  • The Paranormalist

    My name is David. I am a Nord of Skyrim, an Unforgettable War Hero, the Legendary Dragonborn, the Leader of the Thieves Guild, the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood, Thane of Every City, Powerful Master Mage of the College of Winterhold, the Harbinger of the Companions, Leader of the Blades and the Slayer of Alduin the World-Eater, Harkon the Vampire Lord and Miraak the Dark Dragonborn. Yet whenever I kill a chicken, I am the world's worst known criminal. Can I go to Sovngarde?

  • Finn Driessen

    I dont agree about Skyrim's starting zone. You dont get any backstory but thats what makes it so great. Youve been knocked uncautious and thanks to the hard hit youve forgot most of youre memories. Instead of Oblivion you dont even know how you became inprisoned.

  • Seph Geodynamics

    Without a doubt, oblivion is superior, the quests where simply awesome

  • juju planet

    I like that in oblivion the daedrc quests you actually do stuff unlike skyrim

  • Jared White

    They both have the problem where the dungeons are all the same, especially after multiple playthroughs.Every nordic ruin is the same. There a few exceptions for ones with unique puzzles/enemies/traps. But uf you beat thenmain quest, you have seen all the tricks they can throw at you. Dragon claws, hidden levers, whole lotta draugr necromancers and bandits. Find the word wall or chest at the end and badda boom find the secret exit to the beginning or outside.If you have seen one ayleid ruin and beat bleak falls barrow, you have seen 20% of the elder scrolls 4 and 5s content

  • BGB IG

    I hate that in skyrim the combat classes such as the nord, orc and red guard don't start off with bonus health or stamina, the high elf starts off with higher magicka which is true to lore and that is good but when you think about it a Breton is better off as a robust combat character due to their base magic resistance which can be maxed out easily and the fact they start off with the same health and stamina as a combat class.

  • Chance Kirkham

    Probably the worst thing about Skyrim is the fact that they took away my hotkey for spells and replaced it with a bunch of really crappy shouts that honestly aren't even worth it because I don't use them

  • Nikolai Pavlov

    im watching this video while installing oblivion :D

  • ThatRetard

    The one thing I noticed that Skyrim did better than oblivion was they made people selfish and stubborn pieces OF #$&*

  • I Play MLBB

    I am the Dovahkiin one of the last or probably the last in TamrielI can permanently kill a dragon by devouring its soulI am the Guild Master of the thieves guildArch-Mage of the college of winterholdNightingale of NocturnalDefeated MiraakThe Harbinger of the companionsHas Slain Alduin Saved the World

  • Joel Duncan

    Really great points especially on the recognition.

  • Marcello Baczkiewicz

    I mean in Skyrim people did give you respect if u killed a dragon for example after u killed a dragon with delphnie a went back to riverwood people whould give you coins.

  • Elizabeth Iris Septim

    You'll probably never read this, but one of the things Oblivion did better was the ambient music.

  • Medachod

    I would've been more excited for Oblivion than Skyrim on Switch.

  • Mastema Howard

    Your character was just that,a character.You weren't gods gift to humanity nor were you able to be everything at once.You were some schmuck that the emperor saw once in a dream.YOU weren't important,you were literally just a glorified escort.Another problem is the forced 1 handed magic.Oblivion let you hold a 2h and cast destruction spells simultaneously.Now you have to pause in the middle of combat to switch spells,equips weapons,and even to use heal spells.Lastly oblivion didn't try and force titles down your throat.You had to earn your way to the top,and thay took HOURS.Compare that to skyrim in which you become head of the companions in less than 8 quests.Hell you can literally become the archmage in skyrim without ever using an inch of magic.

  • Ray2Quin

    Usually I get pissed when you Diss skyrim. But because I also love oblivion I'm okay with this video.

  • Kazema Inzei Raiyaru

    Oblivion dark brotherhood was far better

  • AyrtonGamesBR OFICIAL

    Oblivion runs on my PC, that's other positive point

  • AlchemistOfNirnroot

    Also, I feel like they dumbed down the vocabulary from oblivion to skyrim.

  • Ghost 7702

    Oblivion’s Armor looked way better... minus glass armor

  • that guy

    I actually liked oblivion way more than skyrim.

  • Smokin D. Johnsonn

    compare the cities of oblivion and skyrim. ok i mean, it is obviously that skyrim have better graphics BUT i like skingrad and cheydinhal a lot lot more than Markath or Windhelm. Whiterun is really nice, but in oblivion every city still gives me a Special Feeling. I like Skyrim a lot, but Oblivion had much more soul

  • Buff Lesion's Cargo Pants

    Dragonborn, Thane of all holds, arch age of the college of winter hold, harbinger of the companions, listener of the dark brotherhood, guild master, champion of various daedric princes, slayer of Lord Harkon, Savior of SolstheimGuard: C I T I Z E N

  • Zhero Zhero

    Both were great games but you made some great points - especially how was the characters were treated and how you can have both mage like and rogue like powers in Oblivion. I liked the world design in Skyrim a tad bit better. It was more detailed.

  • Dragma90

    1:34 Hits the flame atronach with fire. You what?

    You said “Here’s a Bosmer, an Altmer, and a Dark Elf, but all of them were Bosmers 😂
