I never played Oblivion, and was going to get in anticipation of this, but hearing what a mess it is on the PS3 dissuaded me.
FNV was a buggy mess because it wasn't made by Bethesda. It was made by the folks who made Alpha Protocol (another buggy mess). Bethesda's games are glitchy and buggy, but more on an amusing level. FNV, however, was exactly like you say: I finished it, but I never want to see that game again. Awesome writing, but horrible on the tech side.
And you should play Oblivion on PS3. It's hands down the definitive console version. It looks and runs 10x better than its console counterpart (no trophies, though). The problems with Oblivion aren't the bugs; it's the design. The scaling difficulty makes the game ridiculously easy. It's quite possible to beat the game in just a few hours if you know what you're doing. But as long as you don't mind that, it's got everything a great Bethesda RPG should have.
