I keep hearing it's buggy but haven't encountered one bug in 350 hours ;O
Vanilla is my favourite flavour of Skyrim IMO

I find that its buggy, has a distinct lack of diversity in terms of items/weapons/armors, very repeditive combat, endlessly repditive enemies and several features that were very obviously and purposefully over looked in terms of the design and implimentation of the game.
Thats not to say that it isnt fun for many people, or enjoyable in its base state, as obviously it is, but I personally can't enjoy vanilla because of the above mentioned flaws and then some.

A lot of bugs aren't nessisarily right out in the open for people to see, its things like weapon descriptions and mechanics not lining up. But there are obvious bugs on top of that not everyone encounters but a little bit of research will show that they do exist often quite severly.

its just that theres a lot that it seems like the creators really didnt think though and just pushed the game out the door since they knew it would sell just due to name and hype....its a great game but honestly theres a lot of little bits here and there you have to tweak with mods to make the most of the game

Haters exist because of posts with titles like this. There is a difference between not liking and hating.

Hate is a strong word .... I don't hate it however with mods it gives me more. I played it on xbox360 and vanilla on my old pc .... and well it to be honest it was not bad however I was glad I could switch over to my main pc.

I don't hate the vanilla game. Skyrim is a great game. But add mods to it and it becomes even more fabulous.

I liked vanilla Skyrim a lot, but I will probably not go back to it, ever. Not after installing a bunch of mods. Because, even with all the issues that crop up because of mods, the reward is so much more than the hassle. Thank goodness for modders and their desire to share their work; because if they didn't, I'd be stuck in vanilla Skyrim and knowing that something wasn't quite right...

I just like to spice up my Bethesda games. I rarely run into bugs and run into more bugs in my modded games, but the added content is nice. Such as better graphics, Better leveling, better perks, ect. I've played skyrim several times without mods but I always mod out my bethesda games after a few regular playthroughs.

I see it like Minecraft, it's okay by itself, but mods are what keep it alive and fresh. You can only do so much in vanilla Skyrim, before it gets tedious/repetitive/boring, and with how many different mods there are out ranging from slight improvements like a new texture for an item, to a complete overhaul in how the mechanics work. For me, I feel like they needed more immersion and to make both crafting and blacksmithing better. I also felt like they needed better "hunting" and felt like it'd be nice to play the game, as a random person rather than as a dovakhin. Plus, the story is a bit bland on this one, I felt like they did a lot better with both Morrowind's and Oblivion's stories.

The vanilla game is good, but it still has glitches and has little replayibility since there's not much else to do once you've already done everything the game has to offer. Mods can help solve the problems Bethesda hasn't patched yet and provide more content the vanilla game doesn't have, so you can get more out of Skyrim in other playthroughs.

Because morrowind is better.

So your logic is that if there is a game better than another game, than immediately the game that isn't better sucks and everyone hates it?
Too overhyped IMO. There's not much to do after you do all the main quests and guild quests. Not much enemy variety or weapon variety.

I think you would only play vanilla Skyrim if you are playing on the console or your PC is too weak enough to handle the mods. Other than that there is really no reason to play vanilla unless it's your first run of the game. And even then you would download the patches for the game and some minor fixing mods not to mention the console.
