I didn't like Oblivion that much and Fallout 3 seemed just like Oblivion to me. Is there any point in me buying Skyrim?
Not if you don't have the time to get into it. Skyrim has sucked up about 20 hours of my life so far and I've barely touched the main quest line. I finished Fallout 3 and New Vegas, but I mostly just played through the main quest. Never had the desire to explore and do the side quests like I'm doing with Skyrim.
As always, YMMV.
