12 Hilariously Awesome Glitches Ever Engineered By Bethesda

There’s always a few distinct things which will constantly remind a person they’re playing a Bethesda Softworks title. The worlds will be vast, the weapons plentiful, the hidden secrets without number – and the bugs they stumble upon as they drink in the rich environment will totally break the game. However, while they are so often regarded as a failing among any series, the glitches and errors of Bethesda’s releases are what adds to their charm.
While well thought out and polished enough to please any wide audience – as well as being immersive and quite often backed by surprisingly solid writing – it’s hard not to crack a grin upon being greeted by a man whose head is spinning wildly in place. Much like witnessing the odd special effects failure or ludicrous science in classic Star Trek, it’s these odd quirks which help the games to remain so endearing and truly memorable as much as their most powerful elements. For all the entertainment which might be found in seeing the Enclave for the first time or assisting in defending Bruma against the hordes of Oblivion, seeing things go completely wrong serves as a small reminder of how unique your experience is.

To celebrate a few of the more infamous examples of these famous programming problems, here’s a list of the problems which have emerged through these games, affecting the graphics, combat, or even the very physics of the world itself; the 12 greatest glitches ever engineered by Bethesda. (Bethesda Game Studios, Bethesda Softworks, Culture, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas: Ultimate Edition, Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)

The only glitches I found was the infinite gold due to poker chips in New Vegas and the fallout 3 glitch that drops you FPS to about ten..
