“Alexa, get me a number for a good knee doctor”
During Bethesda’s E3 presentation, Todd Howard acknowledged the “Skyrim on everything” meme by showing off a very professionally-produced video in which a man plays Skyrim as a choose-your-own-adventure style story via his Amazon Echo. It was a perfect comedy skit which both lampooned Bethesda themselves and the online community’s love of memes. Ha ha, you thought. What a good joke, Todd. How ridiculous.
Except it’s totally real.
You can download Skyrim: Very Special Edition from Amazon and start shouting at dragons via your Echo right now. And it’s free! Even the feature list on the app description is full of goofs, but damn it Todd Howard, you’ve done it again.
