I haven't played Oblivion yet....
*Hides behind couch*
It seems like it would be my type of game, I just haven't bought it yet. I was interested in the PS3 GOTY edition until I was told by multiple PS3 owner that the game contains a bug that wasn't present in the 360 version that makes it impossible to cure yourself once you've become a vampire. The bug corrupted save files and essentially broke the game. PS3 owners have complained and complained, asking for an update to fix the bug. Eventually, the company came outright and said, "We have no plans to fix the bug." Bethesda has now released the 5th year anniversary edition to this game, including some expansions and I thought it would be perfect for guys like me, but I wanted to ensure that they had fixed the bug that was present on the 2007 GOTY edition. Bottom line? They haven't. In fact, they haven't done anything. The disc is EXACTLY THE SAME as the one found in the GOTY edition from four years ago. Exactly the same. Same bugs and same expansions; no trophies for PS3, no DLC for 360 or PS3.
Bethesda has now released three major games (including Fallout 3 and New Vegas) that are notoriously bug-ridden. They need an exterminator in their office or something. I'm pissed because all I've heard is how amazing this game is and I'm left wondering if I should gamble 30 dollars in hopes that the game doesn't freeze or worse. What's wrong with this company. Worse yet, my most anticipated game of the year is ID's Rage, which is published by Bethesda. They've screwed PS3 owners before, so why stop now?
I guess the original port of the game (2007, before the GOTY later that year) is the one I should buy, but it's becoming kind of rare. I just can't think of another software company that does this type of thing. Games come with bugs sure, but the company at least attempts to fix it in an effort to please fans. But not these guys. Thoughts?
