Skyrim Wins Game Of The Year

Skyrim Wins Game Of The Year
 
 

The Video Game Awards have spoken, and they have chosen The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the best game of 2011.

The annual awards ceremony, televised on Spike TV, has become the definitive arena for determining which games rose above the rest over the past year. 25 of the most prestigious gaming media are involved in the voting process.

Skyrim taking away the most coveted award is not an enormous surprise, but it does understandably bring up the recent issue of glitches and game-crashing bugs, crippling the experience for some players, many of whom on the PS3 version.

The problems seem to increase as players progress through the game, leading to the assumption that as the save file gets bigger and bigger, the game drains the system's resources and after a certain point becomes largely unplayable.

In a blog post, publisher Bethesda wrote, "We understand how frustrating it can be when your game is having issues, and we thank all of you for your continued feedback and patience. Rest assured we take your gameplay experience seriously and will continue working on this until it's resolved."

Nevertheless, to gamers who have not been affected by the various glitches, it has been heralded as a marvelous and unparalleled experience. The title was the second best selling game behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
