    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Elder_Scrolls_IV. It looks basically like an oblivion ad, the criticism section contains little actual criticism. Wikipedia articles i have read in the past have mostly showed both sides of the story. If your displeased with the way Bethesda is catering to the LCD and hyping up poorly designed games, edit the article and give it some balance.

    Dude, I already warned you to read the rules, and you go ahead and post a topic on the wrong forum? That should be general gaming, not general discussion. That's the second time you posted in a wrong forum, plus the count of making a thread that was outright vatworthy, so strike one. Should be strike two, but meh, leniency.

    That said, I don't see your issue with the article. The "critics on the game" rightly notes "Which has cast doubt on wether their ratings 9/10 or more for Oblivion truly represent the quality of the game, which also applies to comments such as praise for it's immersiveness and scope", but the fact is most of the professional gaming media has lauded this game into heaven, for wikipedia to reflect this in any other way would be a falsehood.

    Would've been funnier if you'd made a table like the one encapsulating the release list.

    Not that funny, though.

    I'm not familiar with the wiki stuff. I don't know how to make all the fancy stuff.

    Oh yeah, go you. Did it occur to you guys that it's rather stupid to complain about a Wikipedia article not being factual and NPOV enough, and then pasting that sort of thing there?

    You make baby Jebus cry.

    If you think the article is flawed, why not take it to the Talk page, as is customary?

    Yeah. Um, Vox? That's basically the same as what they did. Vandalism.

    Keep up the good work.

    Do you think Wikipedia will ever beat a library or at least a real collection of encyclopedia in it's quality?

    IMO wiki is mostly about quantity. Too much pop culture and stuff no one will think about in 2 years.

    Yeah, wiki is all about quantity. They will have the world's largest collection of bullshit news, information and current affairs, that no one can actually use it down the track due to people changing information.
