This generation, namely the last couple of years of it, has seen some potentially fantastic games fall to the hands of hackers and bugs. Every Call of Duty title has experienced some sort of plaguing bug or wave of hackers that ultimately makes the game less enjoyable, and Skyrim, as us PS3 gamers need not remember, is still experiencing one of the biggest developer screw ups of the generation.

Why is this happening? Why, after several years of these consoles being out, are these types of issues still persisting? Is it unreasonable to expect Activision, Infinity Ward, and Treyarch to create a stable title after several years and unprecedented sales figures? Are we being too critical of a developer as top-tier as Bethesda that utterly fails to code for one of the primary consoles of the generation?

Is it indolence on the part of developers and publishers?
