The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has come a long way since it was first released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2011. Now available on current-gen consoles, Bethesda’s RPG looks a lot better than it did over ten years ago. However, for one player who booted Skyrim up on the PS3, they were greeted with a glitched-out hellscape.
Bethesda may currently have its hands full with trying to make Starfield players see the game through until the end but in the background, fans are still loving its 2011 release, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The action RPG was released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and despite those systems being pretty outdated now, Skyrim still managed to be an amazing experience. However, with the title now available on current-gen consoles as well as PC, booting it up on the PS3 is probably not going to end well, especially for one player.
Check out our Starfield review below!
“I booted up PS3 Skyrim after 7 years of inactivity and a console reset,” read a post uploaded to r/skyrim. However, they were soon met with a glitch fest. “When I first put it in, it downloaded regularly and at fair pace, but when I started the game, it was stuck here for the whole time I kept it open (2 hours). The man stuck in me keeps saying, "Stop/Stuff". What do I do to fix this?”
The post was accompanied by a short video of ‘Skyrim’ but is actually a few characters and a horse stood in a barren, glitchy-hellscape. Graphics may have come a long way since 2011 and I am not very tech savvy myself but I don’t think this is normal and it seems like other viewers agreed. “If you leave Skyrim for long enough, Skyrim will leave you,” read one comment with another simply saying, “It’s a feature.”
With The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim recently being voted as Bethesda’s greatest game by fans, it is no surprise that people are still playing it to this day, even on the PlayStation 3. Let’s hope The Elder Scrolls VI will be just as successful if and when it arrives.
