I liked Fallout NV better than Fallout 3, but that has a lot to do with it having at least some plants and color... Fallout 3 was very grey. I like FO4 better than either of those, especially with the "Simple Green" mod added on so not everything is dead.

The main story line in Oblivion was pretty boring imo... but the side quests (dark brotherhood, thieves guild, etc.) were excellent, and Shivering Isles DLC was awesome. The main story in Skyrim was better than the main story in Oblivion, but the side quests were not as good. Radiant quests in Oblivion seemed less repetitive to me than the radiants in Skyrim... on the other hand, however, Oblivion takes a lot more time to get moving than Skyrim did. It's really hard leave the Imperial City until you've leveled about 5 times or so - there's just too much that kills you fast. But at least there are a lot of things you can do in Imperial City and the surrounding island that aren't required for the main quest. It was easier to just go explore the countryside in Skyrim... but there were also pretty major parts of the game that are locked until you make progress on the main quest line - shouts and dragons being the biggest ones.

I like them all. But at the end of the day, I liked Oblivion more because the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves Guild quests are really, really good. After the very first time, though, I tend to ignore the main story in both of them and do more exploring, side quests, and DLCs. That's fairly true for all Bethesda games for me - the main stories are okay, but are kind of weak.

Bioware's the opposite - Dragon Age and Mass Effect can get really repetitive and boring if you don't just skip a lot of the side quests, but their main stories are so well written and acted that I still love them.
