Tweets From 65 Year-Old Skyrim Mom

Bethesda community manager Nick Breckon convinced his 65 year-old mother to play Skyrim and has been tweeting the comments she makes on her very own Twitter account: Skyrim Mom.

You can peruse the tweets for yourself, but here are my favorites.


On medieval terminology:

These guys were yelling at me ‘get to the Keep, get to the Keep!’ I didn’t know the symbols yet and I felt so stupid. Who is skilled enough to know castle language?

On the chaos of battle:

It was all dark and everyone was hiding behind boulders, and I didn’t want to die again, so I just kept shooting and shooting and shooting.

And then I heard the funniest thing: ‘Well what the hell are you shootin’ at me for, you’re supposed to be killin’ them! Quit shootin’ me!’

I laughed so hard. I was just killing everyone.

On the simpler things:

I like the way I can walk around and pick up thistles. All I’m doing is picking locks and thistles.

On theft:

I was in a house and there was all this stuff, and it kept saying ‘take it, steal it, steal it.’ Am I supposed to be stealing things?

On burglary:

I took on some woman in a house. I stole all her food and she pulled a knife on me and I killed her. Is stealing part of the goal?

[Later] I died so I went back to the same house and did it again as a nice person.

On the simpler things, part two:

I can cook? Where do I cook? In some guy’s house?

On flower power:

I keep collecting lavender. I thought, ‘Well, lavender has a very calming effect, maybe I can use the lavender on somebody.’

But by the time I equipped the lavender I’d be dead on the ground, so.

On meeting strangers:

I generally wait and make everything daylight because it’s safer. I don’t know who these guys are.

Keep it up, Skyrim Mom.
