A friend was complaining about the glitches in his PS3 version of Skyrim. They sounded really bad. He ended his rant by saying "Bethesda! Consumers are not beta-testers!"

For my money, I'll probably wait until Elder Scrolls VI comes out before I spring for Skyrim. First of all, it's highly possible that Scrolls VI may be the first Bethesda game to use more than three voice actors. So far the Elder Scroll games have gotten better with each new release, so there doesn't seem to be much harm in waiting for the next one if this one is still buggy as hell.

And if Elder Scrolls VI comes out and everyone says it's terrible, than I can go buy Skyrim and download what will then be the definitive patch.

Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

I have the PS3 version, and they're pretty bad. The game crashes a lot. However, as awesome as the game is, they're worth suffering through.

That.....was weird... It posted my comment twice.

Good review that I agree with. Fortunately, the glitches were nowhere near as bad for me on the 360, but there were a number of little annoyances. But like you said, the game brings the goods in so many other ways.

Yeah, from what I understand, the 360 version got off pretty easy. It's by no means unplayable, but it is bad enough to make me question whether or not we should be supporting this.

The answer, of course, is that we should, because Skyrim is otherwise incredible.

You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.
