Twitter Thread: Guy Details Ridiculous Skyrim Adventures

It's an emotional rollercoaster of a story like the one that we have here that can really encourage someone to try their hand at a video game that they'd otherwise rain check on. Of course, this is Skyrim that we're talking about. If you've ever played Skyrim before you're probably very familiar with the fact that the game can inspire all kinds of ridiculous nonsense. Those side quests are something else, man. 

A very entertaining Twitter thread about a guy's crazy Skyrim adventures.

Wholesome Gamers Throw Birthday Party For Lonely Kid

As people who have grown up playing video games, we scoff at the notion that video games inherently corrupt people and turn them into violent sociopaths. It's probably more likely that they just turn people into hardline capitalists determined to see how they can buff their intelligence with potions in order to siphon as much gold as possible out of their local apothecary. Video games give people a chance to nuke their fellow players out of orbit, but they also let us cooperate with people we might otherwise not, and sometimes that turns into wholesome moments such as this.

Um, okay, so this guy should clearly have a part in the next Elder Scrolls game. He's out there effortlessly rapping off nonsensical sentiments like a real life Elder Scrolls NPC. Of all the real life Elder Scrolls moments that the internet has produced, this one right here can't be beat.

Just imagine this new machine learning model being applied to other games out there. The possibilities are mind blowing, to say the very least. It'd be awesome to see this in action with a racing game.

Socially Acceptable Behavior In "The Sims" That Conflicts With Reality

Many, many folks out there have gotten lost in the Pandora's Box that is "The Sims" video game experience. One moment you're busy building the house of your wildest, most grandiose fever dreams, and then the next moment, you're trying to figure out how to nurse one of your sims' bladders back to health, because they insist on not using the restroom when they should. It's a wild game. And it's even more fun to imagine what kinds of chaos would erupt were the Sims logic ever to bleed over into real life as we know it. 

People describe the socially acceptable behavior in "The Sims" video game that doesn't line up with real life.

Woman Tries To Be A Good Girlfriend, Ends Up With Stolen License Plates

Man oh man, nothing's worse than trying to do something good, purely good, out of the kindness of your warm soul, only to have the universe seemingly insist on dealing you a nasty hand. In this case, we have a kindhearted girlfriend who went out of her way to try and secure her partner a nice video game controller, only to have her dang license plates stolen. Hopefully that thief gets a nice serving of brutal instant karma.

What a wonderful time to be alive. Just imagine a scenario where this guy sings a song in a video game, and so many people praise it online that he proceeds to get signed by an actual record label. Honestly, it seems like that's something that's already happened to someone out there.

While most of us gave up on Guitar Hero back when "Through The Fire and the Flames" was the hardest song ever, that was apparently too easy for some people. Originally intended as a joke, the song "Soulless 6" was thought to be unbeatable. As all things deemed "unbeatable" and "a cartoonish waste of time," someone took that as a challenge.

Mario's video games tend to be pretty tame and straightforward, but any time he warps into another medium things get freaking wild. From R-Rated manga to adult videos to icecapades, Mario's non-gaming adventures are mostly experiences Nintendo probably wants to keep buried. But now the truth is being revealed.

There's sounds in that there piano, by gum. These sound effects artists are pounding, digging and dry icing their way through that sorry bastard in order to mine those valuable sounds outta there. Evidently these are sound effects for the upcoming Halo Infinite, but mostly boy oh boy look at that unhappy piano.

Have you ever been playing a game and thought "this controller rumbling in my hands is fine but it's not giving me the real 4D experience? When I wrap my virtual car around a tree, I want to look around my room and see actual destruction". Never fear, this person has a solution for anyone who wants their teeth shaken out by their gaming experience.

It takes some kind of real life superhero to successfully recreate a famed level from his amazing video game. We're lucky to be alive at the same time as Tony Hawk. Now, just for people to actually be able to recognize him when he's out and about.

The only thing that could make an already impressive musical performance even better is to see the person responsible for creating the music, genuinely enjoy themselves. This guy looks like he's having an insane amount of fun. And so are we just being able to listen to him share his craft.

Just when you think you might be ready for this guy's impressive Skyrim impersonation he goes and glitches on top of that chair in such a way that it's really too perfect for words to describe. Dude's got mad skills.

Just dwell for a hot second on the amount of time that must've gone into making this strange gem. Somehow, it actually starts flowing at a certain point. It's only a matter of time before a bored gamer somewhere else figures out another way to put a twist on the classic Oblivion game.
