Official Shivering Isles screen shot
Many of you already guessed that a Game of the Year edition would be arriving one day...

Bethesda Softworks plans to continue to ride the wave of success from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - the game publisher plans to release The Elder Scrolls IV:  Oblivion Game of the Year edition.  Gamers already playing the original Oblivion will be able to pick up and continue the expansions without having to play through the game again.

Even though it will be useless for experienced Oblivion players using the PC and Microsoft Xbox 360, Bethesda realizes that an expansion set will likely attract gamers who haven't already played Oblivion.  The Game of the Year edition will include the original Oblivion along with Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine.

The GotY edition will be the first time the two expansions are made available to Sony PlayStation 3 owners.

Bethesda said to expect the GotY edition to be available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.  Shivering Isles added an additional ~30 hours of questing in a new plane of Oblivion, while Knights of the Nine added a new faction, additional items and quests.

Strangely enough, the announcement came at the same time John Riccitiello, Electronic Arts CEO, mentioned how games are "boring people to death."  He also claims that the industry has been "rinse-and-repeat," though I am sure some of you will argue that this Oblivion product doesn't count as "rinse-and-repeat."

Even though I tend to enjoy multiplayer RPGs more than single player games, Oblivion ended up being my favorite single player RPG since Fable.
