Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

"Highly anticipated" couldn't begin to describe the buzz around this title. If "Game of the Year" honors were handed out based on looks alone, Oblivion would already be preparing an acceptance speech. Once an Xbox 360 launch title, the delay may be a blessing in disguise. If Oblivion had been available alongside the hardware shortages at launch, there would have been riots in the streets.
