I think it's more the fact that the game has kind of been in development for upwards of 11 one would think major bugs would have been ironed out by now.

Actually it wasnt 11 years straight as all games that take a long time, it had many forms, was started from scratch years into development and many revisions were made including art style etc...

"Diablo III spent four to five years in development before being officially announced"

"lot of debate within Blizzard as to what kind of game Diablo III was going to be. In fact, several versions were scrapped and rumours link these difficulties to the dissolution of Blizzard North in 2005"

"Content is being generated in regards to the tech and game engine, which was indicated as "really solid" by August 2008. At that time, most of the design team was still on Act 1, refining and improving the quests and flow and some of the big game systems that hadn't been announced yet. Blizzard was not moving through the acts in a linear fashion, and would often revisit previous ones"

That Diablo 3 error was more of a server problem than a game bug or glitch.

Dead Island and Skyrims glitches day 1 were the worse.

However, the games were much better.

Bethesda top of the list. Go figure. Lmao
They REALLY need to learn.

that's why I always wait at least 6 months to buy Bethesda games, by then they are usually as good as they are going to get.

People try to justify the bugs by saying it's ok because the game is open world/really big/really good etc. That's just a lot of crap.

I've been programming for almost 30 years and most of the bugs I see in Bethesda games are just because of sloppy development.

Ive owned all of this generations Elder Scrolls and Fallouts and put in 100s of hours into each. The only one I had any problems with was fallout 3. I never experienced any of the glitches in the other games, but my fallout 3 was completely broken. Still IMO some of the best games of this Generation if not all time.

LOL, yer day one bugs are always funny to look back on , good article.

I imagine the error 37 code will become its own meme if it has not already.

I mean just type "err" into google , the first suggestion is "error 37".

Here's the thing though, the actual game of Diablo 3 has almost no bugs in it. It's a very polished and well done game. It's blizzard and their servers that's the problem.
