The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim bagged recently bestowed with the game of the year trophy at the ninth annual Spike TV Video Game Awards, but the decision was criticized by many on internet forums due to technical glitches in the game’s PlayStation version.
Skyrim, the fifth installment in the Elder Scrolls series, has been praised by critics for its great sense of scale and atmosphere. But, many enthusiastic gamers condemned the decision, arguing the PlayStation version of the game is “broken” and "unfinished".
Players of the dragon-slaying epic have complained of dragons flying backwards, and of computer crashes.
The most harassing issue faced by player is that the game sometimes slows down to the point where it becomes unplayable on Sony’s PlayStation 3 games console.
A recent poll carried out by games review website IGN claims that around 33 per cent of PlayStation 3 owners who had the title were facing issues with lag.
Skyrim developer Bethesda Game Studios, which was named studio of the year at the weekend's ceremony in California, has asked for “patience”, saying it was working hard on a solution.
