Why does the review keep on banging on about it's good looks?!
Looks like the elephant man and Adele's love child. Woeful MPG as well for a small engined modern car. I drive a 300bhp, 2 litre turbo car, which is nearly 15 years old and I still see around 35mpg, the reviewer only got 38 in this heap (and i bet my 35 put alot more smiles on my face!).
The irony is, if this was Microsoft making this level of profits, there would be Anti-competition lawsuits, European and US Federal judgements and Microsoft having to apologise for dominating a market with a single product.
Becuase its Apple though, they make nice shiny things which look pretty, awwwww they're fine. We dont want to sue them!
I wonder how long this attitude will last before Apple are seen as the mighty oppressive overlord.
Jet Packs, Hover Boards, Skyways, and robot butlers of course! (for the consumer, not just proof of concepts)
The results are heavily skewed surely. Just looking at the Top PC games shows Football Manager 2012 & 2011 as 1 and 2 respectively. Now lets be fair here, Football Manager 2011 would have gained sales from Jan-Dec. Whilst 2012 only Oct-Dec or Skyrim would be Nov-Dec!
Surely these results should be divided by the number of days in the year that the titles were actually on sale for?
Have these people not heard of 'hands free'?
If not, they can enjoy some 'facetime' before they grab their phone and facetime.
Poor review, graet game
First off, i don't know how old the reviewer is but they write like they're still in school. No flow, no progression, it seems like each paragraph has been written by a different person!
Anyways, the game. It's brilliant. I'm not sure why so many people are having problems with it crashing, i have just let it auto choose my graphics settings (high apparently) and jumped in to the game. It has not crashed once in about 48 hours of game-play. The only thing it doesnt like is if you alt-tab out of the game then it wont reload when you alt-tab back.
As for the comments of making it MMO? I pray that they NEVER make a MMO Elder Scrolls game. It fantastic as it is, and being able to take your time and do what you like is what makes these games special. Having groups of kids running round killing you and nicking your stuff all the time when all you wanted to do was walk across from one village to the next would remove any enjoyment for the average gamer.
There are so many "wow" moments in Skyrim that you just dont get anywhere else. In how many other games can you come over a hillside and see a giant herding woolly mammoths like sheep?!
Keep doing what you're doing, just make the games bigger and more beautiful, and let me get lost in them for weeks.
