The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is officially a decade old this year, but some players are still finding all-new ways to have fun and enjoy themselves within the popular video game this long after release. One such Skyrim player shared something "fun" on the Internet that they have been doing within the open-world game over a long period of time that no one else has seemingly accomplished.
Over on Reddit, a user by the name of u/jaeinskyrim shared a number of images showing that they had killed everything within the entire region of Skyrim. And when I say that they have killed everything, I truly mean that. This player took down well over 4000 unique enemies--including 2200 NPCs and 2400 animals, monsters, and other creatures--to become the only living character within the game. Basically, they went on a mass kill spree to ensure that they would be the only thing left alive within the province. Although this could be seen as the acts of a crazy person, it's actually quite inventive to throw quest completion completely out the window and instead just focus on killing everything in sight.
Perhaps the funniest part of this achievement from user jaeinskyrim is that the idea for carrying out this task was something that came about at the dinner table. The player who accomplished this feat based their version of the Dragonborn on their wife. "I think I spontaneously said at the dinner table 'hey kids, how about I make mom into a Skyrim character that immediately kills everything in her path?' They were on board, even their mom," the user explained over on Reddit. The whole path of destruction took about one month in total to finish and had been chronicled on the social media platform over that period of time.
While we have seen some truly inventive and unique things from the Skyrim community over the years, this accomplishment definitely stands out above the rest. Even though The Elder Scrolls VI is going to be released from Bethesda within the coming years, there's a good chance that we'll continue to see some impressive new feats like this from Skyrim players well into the future.
So what's the craziest thing that you have ever done in Skyrim? And would you ever consider going on a rampage like this yourself in the game? Let me know all of your thoughts either down in the comments or over on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
