Creators of "Skyrim" Admit to Releasing Only Half of Actual Game
After the announcement of the third patch since its release just a few weeks ago, Bethesda confessed today that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is not a complete game. "The reason why gamers have been reporting bugs and other various glitches is simply that the game was only halfway finished before it was sold."
One gamer expresses his disappointment, but is not discouraged. "Everyone says this game is thegame to buy this holiday season, all of the critics gave it five stars - who am I to form my own opinion?"
Ironically, original plans for the Elder Scrolls series mention the original game as being a "parody of role-playing games", which might explain the excess of inexplicable events such as dragons flying backward, characters floating in mid-air, and skill points suddenly disappearing.
"Okay, it's a fair cop," remarks a representative for Bethesda. "We went overboard with the overwrought story and music, and we got carried away. Now everyone takes it seriously. But since the series has been so successful, why question it now? Let the money pile in!"
