    I'm not allowed to play M rated games. It's the worst thing in the world. I'm 16, my brothers 18, but my mom says no M games in our house. She's fine with me playing Gears of war, oblivion (a game I want SO MUCH for my new computer....its so fun....) at friends houses. Any tips? We watch R rated movies all the time...and its 10 times worse than M games (not gears of war...but still) where 'real people' get slaughtered. How can I convince her!? Any tips?

    And I don't see any resolution to this, besides me going to college. =(. Its agony to only play oblivion once every 2 weeks at my friends house.
    Are there any Teen games that are just as good as oblivion? Neverwinter nights 2? Or is that not active (turn based), because I like being able to attack and block ect in oblivion, unlike dungeon seige where you just click and your guy does the work.

    I've played guildwars, but go bored after I found myself just farming for no reason.

    After playing oblivion, will it seem lame? It has all the same system, with classes ect, and guilds? Never played it, sorry for the newbie questions.

    Thanks

    Oblivion looks better and has a better combat system than Morrowind. But Morrowind has better RPG elements ... a more imersive storyline and a much more diverse and interesting landscape to play in. They both have their pluses and minuses and I don't think for one second that after playing Oblivion Morrowind will seem lame. Oblivion is starting to catch up to Morrowind with MODs from the playing community and I'm sure will eventually surpass it but Morrowind for the time being has the better MODs available.

    NWN 2 is still full of pretty nasty bugs so I'd stay away from that until it gets properly patched. Another game that has great potential IF it gets patched properly (I gave up on it because of the bugs) is Gothic 3.

    I'm not sure, I'll have to look. Shouldn't be any worse than Oblivion. No nudity, no more gore ... blah blah blah

    Never played any of the Gothic games - contemplated it. But never actually got around to it.

    So I'll go for morrowind. Does it have the same basic play? Like sneak attack, and guilds ect?

    Any other games?

    uhhh. Sneaking was still there, though I'm sure not as important as in Oblivion.
    Guilds? They were there. Again, didn't have a major role, IMO.

    If I play morrowind on my new rig I should be able to have max graphics (I should actually be able to with oblivion too). Will morrowind on max be better than oblivion on lowest? Thats what my friend runs it on.

    It's a little blockier than Oblivion, not as lush an environment either

    Morrowind Screenshots these look as good as you'll see in the game

    Heh....At my friends house, he has an old computer, so he had to set all his graphics on lowest for oblivion. The characters on it look more blocky than that. I noticed in the morrowind photos the scenery looked a little bland though. Oh well, as long as the game play is just as good, I'll go buy it.

    yes...I can watch R rated movies, I can go to friends houses and play M games...but I "can't have M games in our house". My brother is 18...lol, going to college next year (actually turns 18 in 2 months, is a senior right now). I would love tips...but I think its hopeless. I just don't get it.

    My morrowind question still stands.
