Fallout 3 or Oblivion
" @Claude said:I'm not so sure. I played Oblivion on my PC and Fallout 3 on my Xbox 360. Who knows? Maybe I would have liked Fallout 3 better on the PC." Oblivion... I lived in that game for a long long time. I only played Fallout 3. "LOL I love u <3 not in a gay way, but u are so full of wisdom "
Maybe another poll is in order. Did you play Fallout 3 on a console or pc?
Fallout 3 is more innovative IMHO. The use of perks, radiation poisoning, crippled limbs are all pretty cool. But the art design is what stands out. I have both and beat Oblivion. Currently working through Fallout 3, and because of what I mentioned, I'm liking it a bit more.

Fallout 3. Despite about three different attempts to get into Oblivion (two on console and one on PC) I just had a horrible time with it for some reason. When I started Fallout 3 my hopes weren't high after my experience with Oblivion but I absolutely loved Fallout 3 and am still playing it today.
oblivion here's why. the leveling system is way better, more diverse environments (although i do like the fallout wasteland), interchangable clothing and armor sets like assigning specifice types of gloves or boots to the character, and swords magic and bow and arrows are just cooler. I still play both but i play oblivion all the time
I tried to play Oblivion when it first came out and I tried to play it again about a year ago. I'm going to assume that I was playing it wrong, but I would just be murdered repeatedly over and over again. I could not make any progress through the game and it did get a bit frustrating. Fallout 3 was awesome though. I finished the game pretty easily (navigating through the subway system in Washington DC proper was annoying though) and running around with Fawkes made the side missions a lot of fun. Fallout 3 easily takes this competition.
Morrowind. But since it's not there, Oblivion.
I hate level caps. Plus, it feel like more of an RPG whereas the everyday things you do contribute to gaining XP in a certain skill. I like that system more than simply, hey you gained a level! pick some new skills.
IE, I love running and swimming to gain athletics over time, jumping to gain acrobatics, lockpick enough to gain lockpicking, etc. In Fallout 3 you can get a high Lockpicking without even touching a lock. Doesn't make any sense to me but whatever :P
Dearest OP, you seem to have made a mistake and have failed to put Morrowind in this poll. I just thought I'd point out this mistake out so you can remedy this, to not make you look a fool.
Both games are a dream for modders - or a nightmare, when you are wasting hour after hour fiddling with (and occasionally breaking) the game instead of playing it.
" @SeriouslyNow: Suprised I even have to answer that. There is much more variety in the perks system, assuming you've played Fallout 3, you probably know this already. Oblivion is a great game and I pumped over 100 hours into that, but the bonuses of classes do not compare to the perks system in Fallout 3. I'd rather not discuss this further. Thanks! "I've played both to completion (inclduing all addons) and there's really not that much more variety in actuality as perks really only show a major variance in the VATS system, otherwise their interaction with NPCs is much like the conferred bonuses in Oblivion. FO3 is essentially Oblivion with a themed makover.
Fallout 3, however when you play for 80 to 100 hours Oblivion's lush nature was more pleasant than Fallout's continual wasteland (i know it's the point of the game, i'm not dumb). Fallout's wasteland is better/more interesting at first. They both have their own strengths and weaknesses in terms of their worlds. I love how in both games I can be 30 hours in and discover gameplay mechanics that I was previously unaware of.
