The Witcher story and world is way more interesting

Oblivion story is boring

lets put it this way, everyone that played both games, will recommend The Witcher over Oblivion. Only person here that recommended Oblivion was SH64, and guess what he hasn't played the Witcher yet

Oblivion is a fine action game, but if you want a good RPG with deep compeling story then the Witcher is only logical choice.

Stock for stock, The Witcher is by far and away the better game. It's is a true PC game not some console after thought.

However....if you put on all the top notch Oblivion fighting, monster, leveling and graphic mods, then I would easily go with Oblivion cause I'm a gfx ***** to the core.

I started playing The Witcher a couple of days ago. If you're looking for a strong story and gameplay, The Witcher is the way to go.

If you're looking for a pretty game with lots of mods, go with Oblivion. Just be warned that Oblivion's gameplay is shallow (especially without mods).

As far as replayability, The Witcher should be the better game, as your choices are suppose to have far reaching consequences (I'm only a few hours into the game, so I can't say how well it works). In Oblivion, once you've seen it once, there's no real reason to play it again (other than play with mods).

If you like RPGs with alot of depth The Witcher dominates Oblivion. Oblivion to me seems to suffer greatly with very dumbed down RPG elements. Mods can make it a little better but the bland feeling is still there. I was bored to tears with Oblivion and had to force myself to keep playing it after the first ten hours. The Witcher is the complete opposite and even now it's beckoning me to play more. Witcher FTW!

The Witcher gets my vote. If you liked the classic BioWare rpg's this game is up there with the likes of the BG series,kotor,nwn and planescape. One of my favorite games of all time and I haven't even had it for a week yet.

Just make sure you get the real game and not the cut one.
