One of Fall 2011’s biggest titles, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, released on 11th November 2011 and was appreciated by many critics and fans alike. Skyrim also took home many Game of the Year and RPG of the Year awards, and was a commercial success despite being released among titles like Call of Duty and Uncharted. It’s a game which will suck you in and there is not a lot one can do to stay away for long. And even after a hundred hours into the games, there’s a plethora of things to do such as hunting dragons or placing baskets on shopkeepers and then robbing them blind.

It's beautiful... and dangerous.

But all was not well. Soon after the game hit the shelves, players started complaining about a number of bugs and glitches, most notably the infamous PS3 lag which makes playing the game practically impossible as the frame rate drops to insanely low levels, especially in or around the five major cities. The Xbox 360 version had some texture bugs and the PC version was the safest out of all three, although they all had a large number of quest bugs where some glitches made quests impossible to finish. Not to forget the bug which involved dragons flying backwards.

I'm 16 and from Rawalpindi. I love gaming and music. I'm into almost all video game genres save for turn-based and horror. I play on a PS3 and sometimes on my PC. I like cats as well. Oh, and I also prefer Windows Phone over iOS and Android. And I absolutely love the Elder Scrolls. Did I mention I like cats?
