Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Be careful: real life won't look good enough after entering Oblivion

No two people in Oblivion look alike, and every speaking character in the game has lip-synched dialogue performed by real vocal actors. And we mean actors: Bethesda, the game's developer and publisher, hooked up with top Treker Patrick Stewart to voice the king. However, the story feels like classic been-there-done-that fare: sinister tragedy leaves a kingdom leaderless, terrible curse revealed, the aforementioned gate to Hell opens, oh-my-God-the-pain, epic quest ensues.
