Looks awesome, and proves that Rogueson and Floydian1 aren't the only ones with talent.
Only thing is that I can recognise the photoshop effect to make the rain. Otherwise...10/10

Making it rain in Oblivion is just a console command, doing it in Photoshop is more work and that rain effect looks way better than Oblivions rain.

Wow...the hypocrisy of this site is off the charts.

10/10 for the picture, 1/10 for the vast majority of site members.

I like it, regardless of anything. 8/10

But Floyd, Rogue, I gotta say...your pictures are not bad. They're far from it...but the beef that I have with them, is that they're so heavily modded to the point that I can't tell it's a screenshot of Oblivion anymore! It ends up looking like every other RPG game on the market, I'm sorry...but that's why I like *this* game. It's different from the cookie-cutter RPGs out there...and the pics you have make it look like everything else, unrecognizable.

this is awesome. As in, you could very well be the next floydian or roguesun. Both of whom are awesome POTD-makers. this is just so... perfect. photoshopped or not, that's 'bout the only thing people can complain about. it's not, as some people put it, "over-modded" (why do you have a problem with that, people?! Bethesda made it moddable for a reason, you know!) or "a boring scenery shot" (I love scenery shots. They make excellent PC wallpapers.) it's an awesome pic of an awesome scene, you must have worked pretty hard to get it so perfect (the pose, the lightning, everything)

in short, you get 10/10 and several boxes of cookies. Sir, I tip my hat to you.

Happy Russia, you mean to say that Oblivion isn't a cookie-cutter RPG? As far as Western RPGs go, Oblivion is just about as cookie-cutter as you can get.

In any case, how does whether or not it looks like Oblivion have anything to do with its quality as a picture?

@ 21

Because the picture has to be of an Elder Scrolls game. If someone were to post a, let's say, Gears of War pic...its quality would most certainly be deterred because it doesn't belong. And for your information, I prefer Oblivion and Morrowind to the cookie-cutter RPGs of Japan. And saying that Oblvion is "western" cookie-cutter...take a look at other RPGs that originate from here...and try to compare them to the amazing stature of the Elder Scrolls games.

@ 15: The reason that people 'resent' you is because whenever anyone posts a negative comment about your pictures, you snap back at them with equal force. Other PotD uploaders don't do this. Also, you and RogueSun had a monopoly going for a while. These are both good reasons for resentment. Think about it, it's not that big a deal if someone doesn't like your pictures. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SNAP BACK AT THEM. This is the sole reason (in my opinion) that everyone dislikes you. If you can stop defending yourself so heavily, people would like you better.

End of rant

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is a Western RPG. The Baldur's Gate series is a Western RPG. Interestingly enough, the biggest reason the Elder Scrolls has the same fan support as these other IPs is because of its modding community. As in: the mods make it popular and successful. The story, however, is absolutely similar to most 2nd and 3rd rate Western RPGs.

Here's an interesting read concerning the differences between Eastern and Western RPGs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_differences_in_role-playing_video_games

Well to be fair Super Llama, you can't really blame us for the monopoly as that isn't under our control, its under your's and Fen's. So that isn't really a valid point. As for the reason we snap back, its not because we expect others to like every shot we post, both of us certainly get plenty of criticism at other sites, the difference is that other sites give a reason for their dislike. They say something like: "her expression doesn't fit with the mood of the shot" or " the color composition is too busy for my liking." Here we get things like Orchidea's comment: "this blows imo." or Serio's: "Meh, seen better. It's alittle tiring with all these photoshops, as they just make the picture worse."

Can you spot the difference between the comments, because historically speaking, most of the peons on this site cannot. You'll notice we don't snap back when someone has justified their claim. We do however when it is an uneducated flame designed to insult rather than constructively criticize. Besides, its not as though Floydian and I can rely on you mods to actually enforce the rules meant to stop trolling, especially when some of your comments tread the fine line of obeying and ignoring said rules.

Okay, Rogue, how's this for constructive?

I find this picture rather nice. The lightning adds a very gloomy, if not frightening touch to the ambience. And it also provides the much needed light source, so that is provided rather well. The stance of the Knight is the usual battle stance, nothing brilliant, but the angle the shot is taken gives a grand scale to the character.

As for the rain itself, it is done rather nicely, whether that is ingame or artistically edited. The title is self-explanatory, and gives the picture its setting without being silly or seeming to have too much thought put into it. The month, "Rain's Hand" is obviously showcased in the weather that is featured in the picture. The dark buildings behind the Knight are an excellent contrast to the shining light on the character.

As if he's returned from some unholy place, or a dark forest, the background compliments the overall mood of the picture.

#23 and #26
I Love Ya'!
But I think Floydian snaps back more often and harder.

How ever, this picture was amazing.
Too bad I couldn't write as good as #26, even if i wanted too.

This is a true 10/10.
And hey, this is the most blazing picture ever!
