Skyrim Ships 7M

ZeniMax Media announces having shipped seven million units of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, saying they expect Bethesda Softworks' RPG sequel to generate more than $450 million in global retail sales. "We are grateful for the fans’ response to Skyrim," said Robert Altman, Chairman and CEO of ZeniMax Media. "Todd Howard and his team at Bethesda Game Studios have crafted a very special game. Anticipation for Skyrim has surpassed any game in our company’s history, and we are pleased that sales and reviews have reflected the quality and hours of amazing gameplay it provides."

I don't get how any of that makes it a Fallout 3 TC but whatever, you're welcome to your opinion. Those are very shallow surface comparisons that totally ignore the rest of the huge experience it has to offer. The lockpicking system? I mean come on, that's just reaching. I agree that the UI is balls but it's workable and I don't need to spend much time in it anyway beyond leveling up and crafting. Acting like you got conned out of $60 is a bit dramatic, we all knew the score when it came to Bethesda UIs beforehand.

There are a ton of other things to criticize about the game anyway, I encountered a few broken quests last night that are a part of the main story for example. I think the blocking mechanics are a bit dodgy. Complaining about the UI is shooting fish in a barrel. The terrible hotkey/favorite interface is far more worthy of derision. How about the fact that there are something like 15 total voice actors? I've heard the same guy about 30 times now and I've barely scratched the surface. The dragons are one of the easiest enemies in the game due to the terrible canned nature of their AI routine. The list goes on and despite that it's still a pretty great game.
