Guess I must just be lucky.
When I was playing fallout 3, there would be entire months I couldn't get the game to launch or stay running. While I love Fallout 3, that was the most frustration any game has ever put me through.
Also, the physics system in Gamebryo is a non stop source of oddities. In Fallout 3 and Skyrim, walking over small objects causes them to rocket from under your feet at a billion miles per hour, sometimes causing physics related damage to your character. You sink into the terriain and rocks, and placing things on shelves or tables causes them to approximately place, floating above the surface you place them on. Also, there are gameplay and stat bugs or straight up errors. It is sloppy. Its like their physics system isn't acting on the direct geometry, but rather some approximation of it.
Granted it is often just hilarious.Edited by _02 - 8/4/12 at 3:45pm
