I have played Skyrim for xbox 360 for a long time now, but recently I've encountered a bug. I can't talk to anybody, I can't select anything, I can't open doors and I can't fight any more.

All I can do is walk and run. I can be killed but I can't fight. Even if I load a previous save, when I was able to play, the bug is still present. Why is that? Am I the only one with this problem?

When I start a new game, it's working. But when you play 60 hours, you don't want to restart again. I think that the last update was a part of the problem. But when I uninstall it, the problem was fixed to 30%. Now, when I want to play, I can only start to one save in particular. The others, I can't do nothing.

    Is it maybe a broken controller? Have you tried other games and been able to use all the buttons? Commented Apr 21, 2013 at 16:24

    Try to clear your system cache and make sure the game is installed to the hdd

  • If "nothing works", are you saying that other games don't work too? Commented Apr 21, 2013 at 17:24
