He said "We thought it would do well, but it has gone above and beyond." One of the more surprising effects of that popularity, are the many YouTube videos. Howard says one of the favorite videos at Bethesda is the one where people put buckets on the heads of in-game characters. He said:

 

It was like day two, and we went, what? Do we fix that? Our lead programmer is pissed and wants to fix it, and I said I'm not sure we should. That's one of those where maybe we leave it in.

 

Howard didn't share details on the forthcoming DLC, but says it will be focused on:

 

ways to make the game better, not just have more, because the game is so big. So we're going through ideas right now, and processing everything people are doing in the game, and trying to think of ways that we can improve it.
