I don't like hearing little kiddies piss and moan when things don't go their way,nor do Ilike hearing people talk smack in my ear whenI get killed. It's just childish, and it makes me want to pull out my headset. If anyone actually talked strategy it might be worth wearing one.

I've never seen Bioshock freeze up on my 360... though I've never played it for more than five hours at a time either. That whole work thing really throws off my play time.
Anyway, reviews are just meant to be a guide to help you choose which games you spend your money on. Thats it. If you don't agree with a review then by all means buy the game and see for yourself. At $60 a pop, games are getting too expensive to just pick up on a whim. Personally, if I have any doubts about a given game, I'll rent it first and see for myself.
You don't have to play through the main story right away. You can go off and do whatever you please. You can join the Thieves Guild or the Dark Brotherhood. I enjoyed the Brotherhood a great deal since it had some of the most memorable quests in any game I've ever played. Don't worry about buying all the coolest stuff right away either. A lot of stuff can be found in dungeons and quest lines. Steal what you can, sell what you don't need. Also, melee characters tend to be less costly when it comes to gold.
However, if you prefer the more traditional Japanese approach to RPGs, you should probably stop right now. Oblivion is all about you making your own way in the game world, and I think thats what trips up most people that don't like this game. It won't hold your hand and guide you through, you have to find your own way.
A friend and I are building my new machine next weekend. The motherboard can handle up to eight gigs or ram, but for now I'm only going with two. When I ask, people tell me more than two gigs would be overkill, but none of them are gamers. I'm mostly into RTS and FPS games. Supreme Commander has some serious requirements, and I know FPS' are getting more advanced all the time. Should I stick with two, or should I splurge and go for four right off the bat?
