Unlike the previous game on this list, we’re sure that you really DID take a crack at this epic action RPG at some point. You probably really wanted to get far in it but, well, did we mention that it’s epic? Being so open-ended, there’s just so much to do here that there’s a high likelihood that you didn’t finish everything possible in this expansive title before you moved on to the next game in your sights. But what IS like the previous game on this list is that it ALSO has a new game coming out: Skyrim. We’re going to venture a guess and say that you’ll undoubtedly feel like quite the schlub picking it up if you haven’t at least gotten a third of the way through Oblivion. Go back to it. It’s still a great game that deserves your time.
