    I'd say no.

    It depends on whether you enjoy Oblivion in the first place. Mod it as much as you like and it'll still be the same game, which is a little different to the way FFH totally transforms...

    Oblivion needs mods. It's more of a toolkit than a game. As others have said, it's bland. Its unique strength is the degree of customisation you can have. Mechanics (for example the levelling system)...

    Were we playing the same game? They both had very gratuitous sexualisation. Not significantly greater sexualisation than a typical straight-to-TV splatter horror movie, but they're firmly at the "not...
