Morrowind, Oblivion and Fallout 3 were nearly bug free out of the box.

Surely you jest.

Nope. Contrary to you, my friend, I was always playing a legit version of these games though and not a "Reloaded" version so that might have helped.

Also, I find it silly to post a listing of a few individual issues. You can do that with any game if your single goal is to make a game look bad and buggy.
What counts is the overall experience that the majority of the gamers had and for most people who played the legit versions of Morrowind, Oblivion and Fallout 3, well, they had a flawless experience. Whether you like it or not.

In Morrowind, I was constantly falling through the floor in a part of the Mage's Guild building in Balmora.

Aaaw. Crap. And there was no way around that particular spot, right?

In Oblivion, there was a critical bug that caused the game to run out of IDs for items and characters after a certain amount of playtime, preventing new items and characters from being spawned. There was also a critical bug where animations would start slowing down and eventually stop completely after a certain amount of playtime, breaking the game.

Yep. That bug existed but barely anyone ever encountered it because we're talking about HUNDREDS of hours of play time. No one other than a handful of the most extreme hardcore nuts ever had that bug happen to them. And it was fixed eventually.

In Fallout 3, I would randomly crash whenever indoors.

Again: Buy the game and play a legit version. Then we'll talk again. Or at the off chance that you did in fact play a legit version: Learn to configure your system properly. The vast majority of people never encountered crashes in Fallout 3.

There were tons and tons of minor bugs as well. Floating objects, holes in the terrain, clipping issues, physics issues, ragdoll issues, Z-sorting issues, navmesh issues, particle issues, transparency issues, scripting issues, etc. The community patch for Oblivion had over 1800 bug fixes.

Every single game has these sorts of issues. Every single fucking one. And the 1800 "bug" fixes in the Oblivion community patch mostly consisted of cosmetic stuff including hundreds of instances where they fixed the spelling. It's ridiculous to even mention that in this context. It's obvious that we were talking about major game-breaking bugs on release day. Major fuck-ups. That kind of thing. And Bethesda has an excellent track record in that regard with their last three releases.

No game is bug free or even close to it, especially not RPGs.

Ah, finally you get it! There may be intelligence left in you yet. I never said that the games were bug free. I said "nearly" which needs to be seen in perspective and comparison to other game (RPG) releases. Naturally Bethesda games have had issues but the vast majority of gamers ever only encountered minor glitches that had no negative impact on the overall gameplay experience.
Compared to other games that come out with show-stoppers, major repeatable crash bugs, save game (or other file) corruption and all other sorts of shit, Bethesda games are like a golden toilet brush in a sea of turds, dude. Seriously .

I really, really hope this doesn't release in a bug-ridden disaster state like most other Bethesda projects...oh who am I kidding...

Not sure what you're talking about. Morrowind, Oblivion and Fallout 3 were nearly bug free out of the box. They had to be, too, because of the console versions. The few issues that remained were addressed in patches. Bethesda definitely has an admirable track record in the post-Daggerfall era. If you wanna hate then hate on something else. Something that actually makes sense or something...

Actually none of my games are pirated. As a legitimate buying consumer I can tell you why always on DRM is a bad idea:...

I'll concede that a flakey connection can be a problem but you know what? People have a choice. Like if gaming is a really important hobby to anyone they could move to a place with better connectivity. If they don't want to move, well, don't buy always-on games. Simple. But puhlease. STFU and stop complaining. It's like someone living in the Rocky Mountains whining that they can't go wave boarding.
All of the other issues are the usual FUD-infested arguments where the likelihood of any such event is in the sub 1% regions. Might as well argue that no one should buy hard drives because they can fail. Everything can fail. Every company might go bankrupt leaving you with no legal resort in case of any problem with the service or product you bought.

People (not necessarily you, Freguson, as I do believe you if you say that you buy all your games) like to exaggerate this stuff greatly for fear mongering purposes just to support piracy-friendly DRM on games or DRM-free games altogether. As I said: It's pure FUD tactics usually from the typical "interested parties".

Nah Carmack's just smart. He's going where the money is. While PC gamers prefer to steal their games and waste everyone's time making up all sorts of shit excuses for it, publishers are raking in the big dow selling to the much less piracy-crippled console market.
If people want shit to change then they need to go back to buying their PC games instead of stealing them. As is always the case with this sort of thing people expect other people to move first and in the end no one moves. Except the world. It keeps on turning and it's turning in favor of the stronger console markets.

I know exactly what the replies to my post will look like. There'll be the same tired ol' arguments in favor of piracy. Sure. Go ahead and let it all out.
But anyone arguing against what I stated above is only in denial of the truth. A truth that people like Carmack, Yerli, Muzyka & Zeschuk, and many other leading heads of former PC power houses have long realized.

I for one wish them the best of luck in their endeavor to screw the thieving assholes of this planet big time.
Always-on is no problem at all for the vast majority of serious, legit and honest PC gamers of this world.
It's only a problem for the stealing scum who like to keep their gaming PC(s) offline "just in case" so no one can detect their multiple terabytes of stolen games. Or for the cheapskates who are pissing their pants in sheer angst of any new DRM scheme that might actually all but eliminate piracy or at least delay cracks substantially.

Good luck, GSC! You guys rock!

Can there be a difference between GPUs with regards to IQ? Sure. Like I said, ATI has pretty much always had a slight edge in IQ vs Nvidia, but that's a difference that's noticeable only if you compare side by side screenshots.

That has actually not been true for a few years by now. nVidia has long taken the lead in IQ thanks to a much better implementation of AF and slightly better AA modes. The argument that ATI may be a tad bit slower but offers better IQ is obsolete and has been for a long time already (like when the ATI 9800s were around). You may want to update yourself on this stuff some time.

Oh boy do I remember the Matrox Millenium. Mine came with Destruction Derby, which I loved...but the box in which the video card came in had this freaky looking clown face on it.

If the box had a clown face then you had a Matrox Mystique and not a Millennium, you n00b!
The Millennium came out first and it was always the "professional" 2D card with basic 3D functionality while the Mystique was the gamer variant.
A couple years after WC3, a lot of people in the mid 90s had a Millennium for 2D (Windows/Office) plus a 3Dfx Voodoo for gaming. The Mystique became completely useless once the Voodoo and other better 3D cards came out because Voodoo > TNT > ATI Rage 3D Pro > Mystique.

Wow! I loved the WC Series. Wasnt sure if they would have it or not. It was like 3 or 4 cd's. Sucker barely ran on my machine. Had to upgrade to a 486dx2 I think it was.

As far as I can remember I had a 486DX2-40 at the time and that was not enough to run the game. You needed at least a DX2-66 but the real fun started at Pentium P5-60/66+ upwards.

Looks like I'm going to have to sift through 450 comments of love and hate upon game release, before deciding to buy this game.

No you won't. You can make up your mind right here, right now. Just like BioWare games, Bethesda games are very formulaic. They are never reinventing the wheel from one game to the next. There is always the same underlying recipe. They just iterate and they might try a different flavor here and another spice there but overall you will always recognize the basic formula.

Skyrim will not be any different. It will be Oblivion v2.0. If anyone truly disliked Oblivion (or Morrowind or Daggerfall etc.) then chances are slim you will all of a sudden fall deeply in love with Skyrim.

I quite sincerely hope that the number of tards who buy Skyrim just because of the hype, expecting it to be vastly different from previous ES games, is going to be pretty low. It's always a bit of a major pain in the ass when you have to wade through thousands of dumbass forums posts from idiots who are too fucking stupid to buy the right fucking game for themselves.

As others have mentioned, the UI in these videos is terrible. Every single menu involves scrolling. Want to check your inventory? Scrolling. Want to check your stats? Scrolling. Want to check the map? Scrolling.

It's called Elder Scrolls, dumbass, so STFU and deal w/ it mkay?!

My assessment is that nearly all the complaints about DRM come from pirates and cheaters

That is my assessment as well. 100% ack. People want their free games. Or actually they don't just want them. They even feel entitled to them. So every time a new DRM scheme poses a potential threat to those freebie fuckfaces, the little pussies will go squealing and squirming and throw a hissy fit about how DRM is unfair.
They are unfortunately too retarded to realize that they are helping to dig the grave of PC gaming even deeper but the day of a rude awakening is coming closer with every single illegal download and I will LOL big time once the day has come where no one is making PC games for assholes to steal anymore.

They are an EA studio, none of this sounds implausible.

It sounds extremely implausible because while they might be an EA studio they are an EA studio in Germany where working north of 35 hours per week is considered as slavery and where people get 30+ days of vacation per year in addition to any federal or national holidays and where you have health insurance, welfare and unemployment caretaking coming out your ears'n'ass.
So the poor Crytek crybabies prolly had to work a regular nine to five 40 hour week for three months and are now making a fuss about their "inhuman" working conditions. Yup. Totally plausible.

I guess we're all used to seeing all sorts of really stupid shit on the Internetz but congratz on a job exceptionally well done to the retard who wrote that piece of shit DXHR benchmark "article".
Let me get this straight... the dude got a warez version of DXHR (note the quotes around "dirty hands" which seems like a clear hint that he is not playing a legit version), then he goes on to seriously complain about "choppy graphics" and then he's even got the balls of steel to provide screens as "proof" that are showing that the "choppy" game is running at a min fps of 90+ and generally well above 100 on average. On the highest settings at that. DirectX 11 and all. C'mon. Seriously. Que el fucko, hombre?!?
