You know, JemyM, if I may be frank, that's one of the most insensitively snobbish and thoughtlessly dismissive remarks I've heard here in a long time. Who are you to insinuate that I and many others who play Oblivion are not thought of as highly as PC gamers?

You're 21 alright. And I'm 40 years old, have a Fine Arts degree, have lived twice as long as you, experienced as much in my life,, played games on the original Atari 2600 and Intellivision, and many people who CHOOSE to play these kinds of games on console have their reasons. Just because you've played some of the great games in this particular genre shouldn't mean you should belittle intelligent people like me who are also a very powerful force in the market for video games. I for one AM NOT SORRY that I don't meet YOUR standards.

I'm sick of these high nosed PC gaming snobs thinking they're god's gift to the gaming world.

Aren't you guys here sick of it too?
