    I've logged about 300 hours on Oblivion, and I came across a quest on the Shivering Isles that required me to drag and item, and I didn't know how. I checked the manual and it said to use the L2 button (on PS3). I couldn't believe that after 300 hours, I hadn't even realised that there was a drag button.

    Haven't been missing out on much, but when I started a new character, it was great being able to drag stuff so you don't become over encumbered. Being able to carry that extra sword or two really helps you get a bit of gold a little quicker.

    Yeah, it's not THAT useful.

    It's kind of fun dragging bodies and stuff though

    I use it extensively to organize my loot.
    I have rooms filled with stuff so that my framerate drops to about 5fps lol.
    Yeah, I'm a hoarder.

    I compulsively read the manual when I buy a new game so I knew.  All I ever used it for was to make corpses dance though.  Lugging loot back to town with it was more of a pain in the ass than it was worth.

    That reminds me of how I didn't know about the wait button. I wasted so much time running around randomly.

    LOL. You guys are hilarious! I cant believe that you didnt know about the "wait button" Captn. And Dave, I knew about the drag button from the beginning of my quest. Doesnt help you at all.(Except maybe for that particular mission) But it goes to show how much better off you'll be when you read the manual!

    Haha well I'm glad there are two or three other people who didn't realise either. I guess I'm not just a hopeless retard after all.

    I knew about it. It was in the original gameplay trailers for the game. You guys don't remember how they'd show you dragging the chains, and picking up vases in the jail cell?

    Don't remember that at all...

    Anyways when I found out about it I instantly went to my house and started organizing everything. My house was a mess.

    Yeah I knew about the button. It's kinda fun actually. If I have a chest full of shield per say, then I take a particular nice looking shield and place it on top of it or something, so that it's all nice. It's not really that practical thought, and moving stuff around is somewhat difficult. I hope they improve on this for the next ES game. I like showing off special or unique quest items in my houses.

    Don't worry your not alone, I didn't realize it until I was about 220 hours in and had got all 1250 achievement points from it lol. Makes things kinda fun, positioning bodies how you want them, or hiding them in bushes :D

    Be careful not to drag something when in someone's house/store...it's considered stealing for some reason. You can whack things around with a sword, but trying to help the owner remodel their place by dragging stuff around is apparently illegal. XD

    I've logged almost 200 hours and I had no idea.

    I've always wondered what the button does.  I feel like I've been missing out.

    That actually bothers  me....  they should just warn you.  Like, "hey that's mine!"  And if you put it down they forget about it.  Just assuming its theft should be fixed in the next TES game.

    I think my favorite was reading a complaint by someone about this games saying, "After 100 hours, I've decided I'm never playing this again... I hate how they make me ride my horse between all the cities!"

    Whoops! :D
