It sounds like we're in for a long wait for the next Elder Scrolls instalment so if you're in the mood for some epic adventuring and for some reason do not have Oblivion already then it may interest you to know that Shop To are currently offering the PC version for a mere £5.99. The next best price I have found is £12.60 so you stand to save over £6!
Oblivion tells of the events that unfold after the Emperor of Tamriel dies without leaving an heir; a worryingly state of affairs that leaves the realm open to invasion from the world of Oblivion, a harsh land filled with hostile creatures who aren't too fond of humans (or elves, or orcs, or two legged reptilian/feline races).
However, to complete the main quest is to merely scratch the surface - Tamriel is a huge, living world, just waiting to be explored. In fact you may choose to forego the central storyline entirely. There are side-quests a-plenty as well as caves, forts and strange ancients ruins just waiting to be plundered for all the riches that they hide. You can play as one of the ten different races that populate the vast continent of Cyrodiil and customise your character to be a mage, warrior, thief or anything in between. You can make your own moral choices too, though the game could be improved by more far reaching consequences from the decisions that you make.
