No my point was that it obviously doesn't bother me that much as I'm still playing the game.

And I imagine the vanilla version of Skyrim will be a lot more stable than Oblivion modded into "Oblivion" - regardless of bugs.

It's simply not possible to QA test such a massive open world RPG the same way you can test Call of Duty, for example. Bethesda could have a team of 100 testing the game for 2 years and still not find everything.

It's one thing to thoroughly test a 5-10 hour game thousands of times, but it's something else entirely to do the same for a 300+ hour game. I'm sure they do as thorough of a job as they can, and certainly they have learned from previous games, so they are paying close attention to avoid things like the Oblivion A-Bomb bug, etc.

However, at some point you just have to put the game out there or you will never make your money back.
