In what is possibly the greatest idea ever, Bethesda’s community manager, Nick Breckon, had his 65-year-old mother play Skyrim while he tweeted her comments.

The tweets range from goofy to outright hilarious, but are always entertaining. Let’s take a look at a few of the best, shall we?

A bumpy start:

My mom started playing Skyrim last night. Her first comment: “I think I need Todd Howard sitting on the end of my couch.” 4 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

“It took me like an hour to create my character. I couldn’t decide between Macho or Girl.” 4 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

On ancient lexicons:

“Who is skilled enough to know castle language?” 3 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

The intensity 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. 3 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

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!’ 3 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

I laughed so hard. I was just killing everyone.” 3 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Stealing is bad:

“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?” 3 days ago via TweetDeck · powered by @socialditto


“I got stuck so I said, ‘I’ll see how the New Hampshire primary is going.’ Then I thought, ‘Maybe I’ll spend this election with the PS3.'” 1 day ago via TweetDeck · powered by @socialditto

Losing direction:

“I’m sure I’m missing something, but nobody is yelling at me.” 23 hours ago via TweetDeck · powered by @socialditto
