I would like to play it but i'm afraid i won't understand anything of the game because i didn't play the other games.
You don't need to have played the other games to understand whats going on in Oblivion. There are references to Morrowind and the events that took place there by a few of the npc's, but it wouldn't be confusing to a new player.
Oblivion's story line is completely separate from Morrowind's story.
