When everyone in the world is ugly, how do you pick find the truly hideous? Sure, you may be able to fine-tune your avatar in Oblivion to Barbie doll perfection, but the sad truth is that once you do, you’ll be the sole member of the Cyrodiil Attractive People’s Club. I don’t know if it’s the water or just a really bad genetic pool, but everyone in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is butt-ugly. They all took a dive down the uncanny valley and smacked their faces into the pit below, dancing that line between realistic and oh-dear-god-you’re-hideous. Maybe Bethesda were going for a harsh, gritty reality and people in the middle ages just weren’t that attractive, but perhaps they should have spent a little more time making bearable faces instead of gold-plated horse armor.
