Wasn't that the point of having the flash-light in Doom 3; so that you'd either have a nice view or an actual weapon to use? Kind of defeats the purpose if the game is trying to be scary or atmospheric...

@canuckbiker And to think I was almost a full day in without someone needlessly comparing a game to Call of Duty...

@Kookooburra I think something like L.A. Noire would come a lot closer to "Voice acting is one of the best", but that's mostly because "brilliant" lines like "They have curved swords: Curved. Swords" from Skyrim are delivered so lazily that I feel like there is absolutely no energy coming from the cast of the game. As far as the mod thing goes, what if I'm a console gamer? Besides that, I shouldn't have to fix a game that was suppose to be fine on release day; that was Bethesda's job, and they were being paid to ensure this job was accomplished. And by your logic, I could just download a texture pack for GTA IV and REALLY make it better looking than Skyrim, even though I'd say they are on the same wavelength already.

@Neomaniac15 I don't think that Bethesda should be defended in regards to what the PS3 does as a system. If I'm not mistaken, many developers have made superior versions of certain games on the PS3 as opposed to what they've made on the Xbox 360, with a recent example being Dragon's Dogma, which from what I've heard, is absolutely horrendous as far as performance goes on the 360, and manages to be much more stable on the PS3. Bethesda could have easily pushed this games launch date back, if only to fix problems on the PS3 version, and I don't think it was out of their ability, considering that they were both the publisher and developer of Skyrim.

@Neomaniac15 For example, you say that the combat of Skyrim is the best of the series. While this is debatable, you kind of avoided me saying that it's still terrible. Also, for number 4, my last statement didn't really mean anything to you, unless you were saying something about The Elder Scrolls being definitive as a positive on Skyrim's mark; it might be a household name at this point, but that doesn't automatically do it any justice. It felt like you were more trying to prove me wrong then prove that Skyrim is a legitimately good game. Bethesda is definitely at fault for not being able to program properly on the PS3. I say this because with knowledge of the game being literally unplayable on the system, they still charged full price for it at launch and even had the indecency to start working on DLC for the game before actually fixing it for a large number of users in the first place.

@Neomaniac15 I will argue this point though: I wasn't exactly expecting technical perfection from Skyrim, but the PS3 performance of the game is down-right unacceptable. I don't think it's wrong of me to actually want to be able to play a game that I bought for 60 bucks, is it?

@Neomaniac15 That was a nice response, although I could probably counter argument again, but I don't want to sound like an asshole. Most of the points that you've made make it seem like your manipulating certain aspects of the game so that they match your liking, which is something that I can't really get behind.

@Kookooburra 1. GTA IV from 2008 matches Skyrim's visual fidelity.

2. The music is nice, voice-acting is overly recycled.

3. Horrible by most standards, and way too easy.

4. Seriously?

5. Generic story full of dumb writing, and fetch quests that are never ending? Not exactly solid...

@BimboShaggins It's funny because 360 owners are getting Dawnguard first.

@buccomatic Not exactly: that would mean putting it in the same league as games like Bomberman: Act Zero, which really does "flat out suck". This game is good, according to the general consensus, and I'm basing that off of Gamespot's guidelines.
