" I am in the Oblivion camp on this one. Maybe it was because I was 13 when it came out, or maybe because it was the game that sold me on the Xbox 360 (Yes, the Xbox. Because even back then I knew that there was no chance in hell of my parents ever buying a new computer), but for whatever reason I find oblivion to be a tighter experience than Fallout 3. I like them both, mind you, but there is far more stuff to do in Oblivion that doesn't involve scouring every single inch of the wasteland looking for a single quest. Yes, the complaints about it being generic are valid, but I enjoyed the sandbox "Anything goes" vibe that it gave. As for Morrowind... fuck that game. I have tried multiple, multiple times to get into it with very little success. Maybe walking around an empty world looking for quest objectives at a snail's pace only to get killed because you entered an area you weren't supposed to is your kind of thing, but it sure as hell isn't mine.

Your loss. Unfortunately, the majority of people share your opinion. And Bethseda listened, dumbing down Oblivion to the point of being irrelevant.
Morrowind had the best world, the best immersion, the best/wondrous feeling of exploration, the best music, the most variety. Oblivion and Fallout 3 were dumbed down, although Fallout 3 less so. If you really think about, Oblivions world is just as bland as Fallout 3. Oh look, another forest.
A $239 lifetime subscription option would have been very nice for WoW. But then again, a lifetime subscription to WoW is worth a lot more than that and Blizzard doesn't have much of an incentive to bother with it.
