Sometimes opening levels are really, really great, sometimes opening levels are really, really AWFUL. Yesterday highlighted the first… today highlights the second.
Let’s be perfectly honest, though: Oblivion’s intro just wasn’t that bad. It may have been “unrealistic” (whatever that means in context of an Emperor who talks to the gods and received a vision of you in a dream) but it was fun, and it was a great introduction to the game world and the game itself.
Also, it’s hilarious that Wolfenstein: The New Order showed up on yesterday’s “First level was awesome!” list and today’s “First level sucks!” list.
