I like these games, but I'm something of a completionist. I want to find every weapon, get every perq, max out my stats, and travel to every location. I generally find that more fun that the story itself. And I thought the main story line of Oblivion was definitely the weak link, especially since the game sucked when you had a bunch of NPCs fighting each other. For me completing the side quests was a lot more fun, especially the assassin's guild stuff.
But eventually I just hit a wall and that was it. That point came about halfway through Shivering Isles. On day I just quit and never started again.
Fallout 3 was much better, as was Fallout New Vegas, although I still haven't finished that one, either.
