Got my 57 y/o Mother to Play Skyrim! XD

10 posts in this topic

I just wanted to tell you all because I just can't believe it! XD

 

I bought her an Xbox 360 and some games. I got her to play DA:Inquisition for a little while but then my 15y/o nephew (I know that's weird to have such an old nephew in my 20's XD) got her to play Skyrim. 

 

It was SO funny! We were both just shouting constantly -

 

"Unseath! Unseath!"

"Behind you!"

"No, no- don't kill Hadvar, he's a good guy!"

"PRESS B!!"

Etc

I guess you would have to be there to see how funny it was!

 

To give you a better picture, the most 'intense' game my mum has played is the Zelda games. So, Xbox games (especially Skyrim) are new to her! She likes knitting/crochet and horse-riding - she is the Grandma to a 15y/o boy and she just killed 5 Draugr at once with dual blades... XD ... It was fucking hilarious! 

 

But tbh, she got into it more than I thought! I'll be SO happy if she actually becomes a Skyrim fan, omg XD She played for quite a while, she made it to Whiterun and completed Bleak Falls Barrow. She didn't even die once! I'm just so happy XD

 

Anyway, I hope you don't mind me posting this, I just thought it was so funny! 😂😂😂😂💞💖💜

Tbh I should have recorded it for Youtube! It was so funny...

 

In Bleak Falls Barrow she was fighting a bunch of Draugr on an oil spill with her dual blades (a pot, flame lamp was hanging above her). She was just hacking away and suddenly started pointing the camera upwards, whilst still hacking away.

 

My nephew said:

 

"Grandma, whatever you do, don't hit that lamp"

 

She kept hacking away whilst staring directly at the lamp...

Well eventually it fell (setting her on fire) and she took a potion just in time but omg... it was SO funny! I'm laughing so much just typing this, I wish you could have seen it! XD 😂😂😂😂💞💖💜

If I remember correctly, I think you said before that your mother told you "don't play games all day" or something like that.

 

Now she's playing Skyrim and loving it. NO ONE CAN RESIST THE GAMES!!

Oh that sucks 😂😂😂😂 XD Maybe offer to get her a game of her own to try, let her look around for one she would like to play and then let her play that, as like a 'gateway' game. Idk, just an idea. 💞💖💜
