Bethesda could learn a thing or two from Far Cry 3....

Far Cry 3 has a huge open world, and plenty of stuff to do in it. There is character customization, as well as crafting and weapon customization. There are plenty of side missions to do, as well as a ton of collectibles to find. There are vehicles to drive, and fast travel for getting around the island in an instant. The game looks simply gorgeous, I can't even fathom how awesome it looks on PC. Anyways, I bring all this up because with all the similarities it has with Skyrim, Ubisoft manages to pull it off even better than Bethesda in my opinion. I haven't seen any bugs, much less game breaking glitches as we are all accustomed to in Skyrim. I haven't seen anywhere NEAR the amount of load screens in Far Cry 3 as I would be accustomed to seeing in Skyrim. Overall, they just did a fantastic job with the game and I wish Bethesda would take some notes.

I don't recall any game breaking glitches in Skyrim.

Yoy may not have had them but its pretty common knowledge that there are loads.

Far Cry 3 also didn't have anywhere near the amount of content a Bethesda RPG has.

I would trade less content for a better and more seamless game world. Less load screens, etc.

I don't think I would, in fact I know I wouldn't. All of the side stories, guilds, etc. really make the world feel immersive.

wrong.
That was my only gripe with FC3. There was hardly anything to do in such a gorgeous, big, open world.

I would disagree, there were a lot of side missions, but the whole place really emptied out when you completed them all. luckily there was a patch recently that allows you to rest all of the enemy outposts.

That's what I meant...once you complete the side missions/campaign, theres were no enemies (I played before the patch), and nothing to be gained from hunting.
