It plays good enough that I've become hopeless addicted to it, which is a rarity.

Now back to snorting a line of co... err... playing Skyrim.

I could think of a bunch of things that need to be fixed... but I've already played for 38 hours, so I guess I don't care about it as much as I should. You win this time, Bethesda!

Whatever, this game is still kicking ass!

I got a gamebreaking glitch at the end of the blood's honor quest. I can't move on to the next quest in the quest line. No quite sure if I should just abandon the quest line or just wait for the patch.

My horse fuckin killed a group of bandits by itself and distracted a giant long enough for me to kill him. Horse of the year.

I had some bad framerates and a corpse spazzing out but thats about it.

Most of the games I buy have been out for 6+ months. They're on sale and patched decently. I sure appreciate release day buyers to play through the bugs for me. :)

I'm 30 hours in and I had one lockup and like three glitchy npcs. GOTY by miles for me so damn good and it reminds me of how much I fucking loved Oblivion.

With the exception of save bugs, any kind of glitchy craziness in a game of this scope and size is understandable. This ain't a 6 hour corridor shooter. I'm about 20 hours in as well (PC) and haven't had any issues. The small bugs I've seen have been more funny than anything, and at this point in my Bethesda RPG playing career, welcomed.

@endaround: What save issue is that other than the saves getting REALLY huge after some playtime? Do they have a tendency to corrupt or something= maybe I should start using more than two slots from now on if that is the case.

I've had a couple of CTDs (annoying but not game-breaking) and one flying mammoth (hilarious). So far this seems to be way better than Morrowind or Oblivion.

I've been playing on the 360 and it's been just fine so far (though I'm only about 10 hours in).

The PS3 save issue is huge. Have no clue how that slipped by.

@Bantamoose: That would have me laughing forever.

Posted by cyraxible

I've only had a couple CTDs and I fixed that by tweaking some audio quality stuff and haven't had a problem yet. This is leaps and bounds less buggy than any previous Bethesda game.

Posted by Deusx

It isn't as buggy as other Bethesda games... I'm already 20 hours into the game and I've yet to find a single bug. I'm on PC of course.

Posted by SaltyPancakes

I believe you don't overlook the bugs in Bethesda games, they just more than make up for them.

Posted by Bantamoose

The only major bug I've had is when all the ground had vanished in the Town of Solitude and being high up on a cliff face it caused every NPC and myself to fall to our deaths, which was nice.

I've logged about 12 hours so far (I know, pretty weak) but I haven't really had any bugs or glitches with my copy. I am running the PC version. I did have it crash to desktop randomly once yesterday when I fast traveled back to Helgen. But, I booted it back up, fast traveled there again and worked fine.

Posted by donfonzie

It does work well enough that its completely playable. only ran into a few glitches in the first 20 hrs., nothing game breaking though.

Posted by solidlife

I dont know to be sad or happy about patches, happy its being fixed sad that it is not fixed at launch

When Bethesda will get around to making the poor buffalo as bad ass as Skyrim's horse?

There’s probably an argument to be made that we cut Bethesda Game Studios a little too much slack about the issues that plague the launch of every one of its products, but the games are just so damn good, so...we overlook it.

This is why I’ve put 25 hours into Skyrim and don’t seem to care about a fairly serious texture issue!

That said, Bethesda has publicly admitted there are plenty of kinks to work out. Pete Hines, the company’s VP of marketing and public relations, told his Twitter followers that a patch is coming.

“We are continuing to work on an update for all platforms to address issues any bugs and [performance] issues we can,” he said. “We will fix as much as we can for your platform. I don't know if it will fix ‘your’ bug. Takes a while to test/fix/regress. Hang in there.”

At the moment, there is “no word yet on when it’s coming out,” but as the company is still actively monitoring submissions from the community, it’s possible your issue could still be flagged and included in an upcoming patch.

If you were expecting that patch in the next 24 hours, however, that may prove too optimistic.
