why didn't Bethesda get a new engine when developing skyrim?

Bug will always exist.

The problem is not Gamebryo, it's the game design.
Sandbox RPGs are inherently buggier than linear games, because there are bajilions of variables to be accounted for.

Not to mention that important NPCs exist in the game world, unlike GTA, which NPCs are only available at missions.

Besides, Other linear gamebryo games work fine.

I thought they used a heavily modified version of it.

I would love to be proven wrong though.

Doesn't hating on things you couldn't do better yourself just make you feel so cool and intelligent?

Im honestly not entirely sure anymore. First it was a brand new engine. Then it was a heavily modified Gamebryo. Then it was a brand new engine.

Ain't most new engines just heavily modified versions of older ones?

Take a look at Oblivion in it fifth anniversary edition - it's much better than the first release edition. Give it a chance and we will get Skyrim in it Game of the Year version and Fifth Anniversary Edition.
