Sneaking In Skyrim Makes No Sense

Sneaking In Skyrim Makes No Sense

We all know this, but it’s hard to care. When you’re 100 sneaking and ripping through dudes in a crowded pub before DISAPPEARING WITH A SINGLE CROUCH, it’s so much fun.

But yeah, it makes no goddamn sense whatsoever, as this video hilariously illustrates.

In-game, this sort of stuff doesn’t bother me. Same with games like Metal Gear Solid. As long as the mechanics and the universe are consistent I’m happy to just mess around in a stealth environment that makes absolutely no sense at all.

I actually think a realistic stealth game would be no fun whatsoever.

Either way, this video is super funny. It’s a worn-out joke, but the video is very well made.


  • Games are arguably at their least fun when they are trying to be “realistic”, which is a self-defeating goal to begin with. If it’s not fun, don’t bother with anything else.

  • I’ve been playing Illusion Backstab Assassin and honestly the honeybrew estate mission for the thieves guild was so much fun, managed to sneak the whole place and get to the vault then burn the bee hives and sneak away. It’s times like that in this game that I love the stealth … then you have a spider see you who telepathically alerts all the bandits in the cave you are there hahaha.

    But yeah 100 stealth, no invis, only taking the damage tree of stealth, its a lot of fun to get that throat slit animation on a dungeon boss or sneak in and mass frenzy the room then watch the chaos while raising the dead. 🙂

    • Backstab with Blade of Woe is bae.

      I run/ran a Wood Elf with 100 Sneak plus all of the damage tree in stealth, plus all of the Archery tree. So much fun.

      • Ooo the blade of woe looks boss! Been running around with a glass dagger currently. Looks like I need to pay a visit to Aventus Aretino
