Bethesda is one of my favorite game publishers, however, as far as I can recall, there games have been notoriously glitchy. What was the strangest one you ever saw?
The most bizarre one I ever saw wasn't so much what it was, but how complex it was. It also didn't happen specifically to me, but to my sister while she was playing Skyrim.
So anyway, in Skyrim There's a random encounter where you see an orc attacking and killing some person. If you talk to him he tells you that he is to old to lead his tribe, and needs to die. So, He's challenging random people to duels to the death.
My sister saw this, and figuring it was just a bandit ignored the situation. For some reason this knocked the planets out of order and caused this crazy glitch.
Several game days after my sister's encounter, the man who died was standing outside the gates of Whitrun, when spoken to he would only say the default responses, "Yes?", "Need Something?", "Hmm?".
This is when it starts to get really weird, later, the man for no apparent reason was half burred in the middle of the road in the same place he was standing earlier. If that's not enough HIS CLONE was just, standing next to him.
When my sister used the 'Ice Form' shout on the half-buried man, He went absolutely ape-shit! His limbs shot out in random directions, for what would equate to several miles, flailing violently, and the vertices that made up the model meshes would jitter spasticly. The only thing I can compare it to is perhaps a daddy long-legs spider having a seizure. And then, when the shout wore off, all his limbs would 'suck' back in and he'd fall to his death.
Every few days after that, the game would add a new clone to the group, currently there are three clones plus the guy half-buried in the ground.
This was by far the strangest glitch in ANY game that I have ever seen, not just Bethesda, but anyway, what was your strangest Bethesda glitch?
