Hey guys I really think we should toss up a Skyrim subculture entry. There are already a few image macros and viral videos about it, so if you come across any please add them to this thread!






Lots of bucket videos actually:

Good idea, Don. Here ya go.

Suggestion: Subculture entry for the Elder Scrolls in general.

Skyrim has made popular content, but it isn’t the first Elder Scrolls. For example, Oblivion gave birth to various memes (Adoring Fan, “Stop Right There Criminal Scum”).

With a subculture entry for the Elder Scrolls in general we’ll be able to cover this all.

I was thinking the exactly the same thing.

I was thinking there needs to be a Skyrim/Oblivion/TES entry, as well. The biggest part of it being all the mods people have made, and how much of a sandbox game it has become over the years. The video above is case in point (The Silly Adventures…). There are also lots of creepy (but nice) people who make adult mods… and then there is the ongoing debate surrounding mod authors who make people pay for their mods…
Just a few things to consider for whoever writes this.

And then theres shit like this.

Got to remember Fishy Sticks and Fargoth from Morrowind, they were pretty big memes on the official TES boards.

And then there’s the two Harry Partridge skyrim videos on youtube, well worth a look.

Some people over at Destructoid have been really excited for Skyrim, namely Jim Sterling and Max Scoville.
And there WAS the whole shitstorm about Max talking about how many fish were in the game.

Also, it looks like the video I posted was already posted and now I can’t delete it since it’s been more than a half-hour. Whoops.

I’ve seen that peculiar video in which someone succeeded in stealing everything in a house after he had covered the head of every NPC there with a bucket.
It was glorious.

I have a feeling these bucket vids are gonna keep coming. It’s the stupidest, most ingenious thing I’ve ever seen in a game.

I think the phrase “FUS RO DAH!” might be getting popular, though I haven’t found any images that aren’t pony-centric or advice animal spinoffs.

You can enjoy killing trolls with fire in Skyrim!

Are the giants in Skyrim becoming a meme?

They’re on Penny Arcade and Destructoid.

@Broseph Subculture, not meme.

Also, FUS RO DAH! (Force, Balance, Push)

This trailer is the origin of FUS RO DAH.

FUS RO DAH also gained popularity because it’s most commonly the first full shout a player learns in the game.

A buddy of mine made this. Over 100 hours of work he said.

as far as I know it was for some contest to name your kid Dovahkiin, and this was his outside of the box approach.

@Don I might throw in my knowledge to the article if I have some time spare.

Also people, Use the UESP for good information on the whole franchise. Plus it’s generally far more accurate and reliable than the ES wiki and other sites.

Haha, dumbshit advertising noobs! YOU FAIL.

Anyway.

I do not have Skyrim yet. I feel like an asshole.

Sad that I’m scouring my house for Oblivion and playing Morrowind.
