Fans all over the world are begging Bethesda to honor a man's final wish by immortalizing him in the Elder Scrolls universe.
He shoulda tried Skyrim VR
Do you often make these types of jokes for dead people? Disgusting.
Humor is subjective, but most of it deals with dark subjects.
Is he dead already? I though he was dying.
I wasn't joking, he played the 360 version, his dream was to be 'in' Skyrim, Skyrim VR does that better than any other alternative. But go ahead and get your knickers in a twist because you jumped to conclusions like a fool.
I don't think he should be in the game. *Edit* I think it could lead to copycat situations where people who are hurting and feel hopeless decide they want to be in a game. I have suffered with depression since I was a teenager. I once went to a bridge and thought of jumping. I became an alcoholic and yesterday had 9 years of sobriety. Help is available, suicide isn't the answer
Was he suicidal too? I though he had one of those terrible diseases. I'm not saying alcohol isn't it, right?
He killed himself, many people who do have depression. All we need is some lonely kid with mental health issues deciding they love WoW or some other game so much they want to die and be memorialized forever.
"On April 25, 2020, he proclaimed his love for Skyrim on his Facebook page, stating that he would “give up literally anything to just be in Skyrim.” Unbeknownst to his friends and family, that would be his last post, as he sadly took his own life shortly thereafter at just 24 years old."
So what if they do it doesn't mean everybody who wishes it be will be put into a game. At the end of the day if it makes a few desperately unhappy people feel a bit better it's a good thing.
"At the end of the day if it makes a few desperately unhappy people feel a bit better it's a good thing. " It's a good thing that the idea of being in a game makes suicidal people happy? if people think there's a chance of getting into a game, it might be enough to push them over the edge and decide to go through with it. Mental health is serious, things that may seem insignificant to a healthy person might affect somebody with mental health issues differently. Your mind tells you things that aren't true... That you're hopeless, a failure, people don't like you... If someone is thinking about suicide then any minor issue or bogus bs reason their mind comes up with could make them do it.
I suppose you are the gate keeper to what makes life worth living...
You can't put a halt to positive things like someone being put into a game in case it upsets somebody else, sorry but that's not a healthy viewpoint.
You can't go rewarding people for taking their lives, either. Every circumstance is different. I am looking at it from both sides. Dying from disease is one thing, this isn't the same by any means. People with mental health issues don't always think rationally
No it's not a good thing to incentivise people to kill themselves but that's not what happened here nor do I see any realistic danger of it happening in the future.
And thou shall become immortal .............selling phillica seeds and health potion to better men for ever and ever and ever!
Yeah nah, what are bethesda going to do? Put everyone who likes the extremely over rated game into it when they die.?
That's where this is going. If you're a terminally ill child then yeah I think it's cool for devs to do something special for the kids. But at some point it stops being about giving kids a unique experience before they pass and it becomes about men's egos and wanting to live forever. I feel for his family and friends, I'm sure they're traumatized by this, but he made his choice. Let him rest.
Nah fuck em all, die like everyone else.
Death will greet you too mate, will you bargain, scramble or except?
