Why do people hate Skyrim so much?

#101SinfullyvannilaPosted 11/30/2012 8:19:55 AM
There's a few common reasons:

1: People feel that the game got a free pass from having bugs by the reviewers. The game is horrendously buggy.
2: The game wasn't programmed with the PS3 in mind. Because of this, the bigger your save file gets, the lower your framerate drops. What exacerbates this issue is that it already existed on Fallout: New Vegas and wasn't addressed for this game.
3: The combat is just mindnumbingly bad.
4: They still used levelled loot. This is a big anger point for the Pre-Oblivion fans. Before Oblivion, TES manually placed all the loot in every area. In the new ones, loot in containers is randomly generated and levelled. This kills the incentive of exploring to find the better loot, since no matter where you go, you are always going to find something similar to anywhere else.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

pretty much ya .... I admit I really like Skyrim and all ES games but ya it did kinda get screwed a lot for just being on PS3.

Also you left out though that everyone also took and power maxed Enchanting and Blacksmithing then complained that it made the game too easy when they were running around in end game gear with the best possible enchants in the game at level 15 since the concept of pacing and self control just doesnt exist for them.

Mostly because it's popular.


Spoken like a true, delusional Skyrim fanboy.


ITT: Those who like what you don't like are automatically "delusional".



ITT: those who dont like what you like are automatically "haters", or "trolls".

it actually goes both ways apparently. either way you cant have an opinion.

I think you should be getting a clue, it doesnt matter how "easier" it is to build a pc these days. the main casual gamer will game on a console...end of story

do you think the average joe is going to know what GFX card to get, Soundcard, how much RAM, Disk Space and so on?.....no he is going to say "well, i can just pick it up on 360/PS3" and not have to deal with any of that ****

Stop telling people what they can and cannot play THEIR games on


First off, I completely agree that everyone can play on whatever platform they want, getting a PC is definitely a more arduous task than a console, and it should be the responsibility of the developers to make sure that no console gets shafted on a port.

That being said though, there are blueprints everywhere online specifically outlining what cards, disks, and boards to use and how to hook it up. It's definitely much cheaper to build a computer than it's been in the past, you can even buy a $500-$700 PC that will run games just fine, and especially in the case of games like Skyrim with huge modding communities, the PC version is simply leaps and bounds better than the console counterparts.

i liked the game but not as much as morrowind or oblivion. the game just isnt as deep and engaging as the past games, missions are too short and easy, and going up in rank and becoming guildmaster can be done in less than 2 hours.

there are blueprints to build anything online, but people will always prefer to just buy it because its much easier. a good gaming pc is much more expensive than a console. yes you can build but even then for a good pc you're still going to end up spending a little more on it than a console these days. not to mention its not as easy as just connect point a to point b. have to find whats compatible to what in your price range. heck those really good gaming cards are damn near the cost of a console by themselves.

Uhhh, I hope you realize it's a very small but very vocal minority of gamers who bash Skyrim. It's mainly people who love anything from Japan, and are mad Skyrim sold close to 15 million copies and their jrpg nonsensical sega genesis graphics game niche game with loli schoolgirls and penguins struggled to sell 100k.

This forum is filled with weeaboos and jrpg fanboys, who spend all their time bashing anything from the west, so it seems like more people hate Skyrim than really do. In the real world, people love this game. I always get the urge every now and then to replay it, and I got buddies who STILL play it and are loving the expansion DLCs

You release your game and it has disc locked content and day 1 dlc I will just buy your game used.

To the people who hate the combat... most of them play crap turn based rpgs. Combat was fine for an RPG. Games like Souls games are action games with swords and magic, and lack key ingredients to be considered RPGs.

The combat was a big step forward from previous elder scrolls games as well.
