i played a pre-release reviewer's build starting last month for the site I write for and after a 50 hour playthrough I only experienced a very minor bug with a NPC who was supposed to be "gone" suddenly appearing on my ship and bringing up old dialog and a CTD once while exiting the game. Nothing major. A few graphical glitches here and there but that's more of my fault for running year old nvidia drivers.

Overall, it's probably the most stable game they've launched. Which admittedly, doesn't mean much, but still.

I've honestly never had major bug issues with Obsidian games, which people always give me the stink eye for. I probably rarely play on release day though, I'm just not someone who chooses what to play based on newness. I did play New Vegas right away though and the only bugs I had were some enemies stuck in the ground.

Anyway, subjective experience is subjective. It's just a shame Obsidian is known as a bug factory when I personally have never experienced that.

Replaying PoE1 now, then I'll play something different, then PoE2. Looking forward to it!
