Yes, clearly the Game of the Year is terrible and no one likes it or should buy it...

I don't care if it was programmed in assembly on a Z80, if the game is awesome, then its awesome, and skyrim is awesome.

Agreed. Skyrim is beautiful. Sure it's a console port, but the modding community never fails on making a good game play better. There is so much to do in Skyrim it's overwhelming. I have so many quests I don't know how long it's going to take before I even begin the main quests.

On topic:

This CPU optimization mod works! Well done.

The reason modders can fix games so easily is because they don't have to test their fixes. Bethseda has to weigh the risk / reward of optimization vs new bugs. A full round of QA can be very time consuming and expensive.

That's true post launch. But there's no reason this game didn't ship with those optimizations.

Agreed, optimisation should be done on the developer's part. I dont believe in modders having to take over the dev's job by adding something like CPU optimisation to a game. This mod shows how simple and effective it is and there is no reason why Bethesda was not able to do it themselves.

Installation Instructions

Install SKSE (Skyrim Script Extender) latest version from http://skse.silverlock.org/.
SKSE must be installed to the same folder as Skyrim's executable (TESV.exe).
Install this mod, TESV Acceleration Layer, through Nexus Mod Manager, or manually to <Skyrim root>\Data\SKSE\Plugins. Create the SKSE and Plugins folders if they don't exist.
Launch Skyrim using skse_loader.exe from the SKSE install.

Some feedback on this mod says that the drawback from it is that some triggers don't happen anymore.
For example, some event that would happen on the first walk in to a city will not trigger. I did not try it so far as perfs are already quite good on my setup (or I have low standards?)

As far as avoiding Skyrim, this is a ridiculous statement. I have clocked about 90h on it and i'm still far from done. The world is gigantic and beautiful. Vanilla Skyrim works great on my setup and although it *could* both look and behave even better, there is no real failing there. This game is bigger than most *series* of games and is a ridiculously good value. If you liked any of the past TES, you should definitely give it a try, I doubt you would regret it.

Me, I'll keep enjoying that great game (I can expect another 20h more easily from the quests I have and I want to finish, probably a lot more quests I have not started yet) and then I'll wait for the mods to roll in and probably play it more in a while (or not. I rarely go back to games once put aside).

I hope this makes its way into an official patch asap. I don't like going crazy with the mods on my first run through the game
