"You find what you look for"

If you mean I find legit reviews when I look, yea that used to be true. I never trust any type of review anymore, from anyone. There's waay too much money flying around now. Metacritic is the easiest to sort through the trash just by score comparison. When one reviewer gives a game a 90 and another a 50, there's something wrong there. There's something horribly wrong with the game industry in general but I guess its going to take a major market correction before dicks like EA learn anything about customer loyalty and satisfaction [spore haha!]. Valve and the like are islands in a shit storm. If your reading this, take sides now. Vote with your wallet. Down with sleazy marketing scumbags and up with serious developers.

This is stupid. The game will NOT ruin your ps3's processors. It would never make it past sony's licensing process if it was frying chips. People are simply band wagon jumpers and love to sing songs of despair. Even when they don't have experience with the issues, they're compelled to be negative about it simply because other people are also.
Look up any big label game and you'll see tons of results about how it's bug ridden. You find what you look for. Don't be so narrow scoped. Look at the entire picture. It runs fine for me on 360 and PC. Maybe not on the ps3, but that is not bethesda's fault. This is sony's for having such a range of different hardware in the wild. Not all ps3's are created equal. Newer models have some of the original hardware features emulated on the Cell processors now. Sony will be issueing a system update to address these issues.

If that's te reason, they should have said "review edited due to bug fixed" or something like that. changing it without reason only leads to people thinking you're up to no good.

I have been playing the PS3 version for a couple of days now and have not run into any of the above mentioned bugs.

Valve and Blizzard seem to be good examples of companies who don't rush their games. The result is a game being released like a year later but I don't mind because I know its almost always high quality.

Cause it costs a bajillion dollars to make a game..and anything new/innovative is generally seen as a risk they don't like to take..if rushing it means more money in the end, many companies will do that, sadly..thankfully some see it the way a lot of us do..that is, quality game=more sales long-term.

Game companies are probably rushed into releasing the game, instead of waiting and making revisions to the game to make it as perfect as it can be. I'm not completely sure as to why game companies are rushed these days though.

Why does it seem all the horrible awful bugs show up on the PS3? This really confuses me.

Yeah, another huge factor, for sure. It's probably just best to check out previews of the game some, play the demo if there is one and/or rent the game, and make your own judgments..

Agreed on the hype thing too, certainly seems to be that way..I've heard the same thing about GTA IV.

I think part of the problem with reviews not being accurate is how many hours of gameplay it takes before you can really put a number on a game.

I'm guessing most pro game reviewers just don't have enough time to be able to put enough hours into games to be able to make a really good judgment, so a lot of them get swept up by the hype.

Any game that has a big buzz to it seems to be practically guaranteed an average rating over 8/10.

Like GTA IV for instance. The game has a ---98 / 100 --- average metacritic rating, which is crazy. I haven't played the game, so I can't say whether this accurate, but I personally haven't talked to a single gamer that has LOVED the game, at like 98/100 levels.

Practically all the gamers I've talked to who played GTA IV said it was really good for the first few days then the game sort of lost their interest because of the mission structure and a couple of annoyances. I haven't talked to a single dude whose even finished the game...
