Bethesda, best known as developers of RPG franchise hits like Fallout and Elder Scrolls, created a very unique challenge to their audience. They promised to award free games (by their company) for life to any child born on the release date of their newest game, Skyrim. To prevent thousands of people getting free shit, they included a very special stipulation: the child must be named “Dovahkiin”, after the game’s protagonist.

Sure, winning free games is nice and all, but is it really worth it to make your child hate you for life? As you can see by the young hatch-ling (above) pinned by video games, some parents sure as hell did. Dovahkiin Tom Kellermeyer was born at 6:08 on 11/11/11, entitling him to a lifetime of free Bethesda games and a lifetime of school yard shame. The kid’s only a week old and he’s already getting embarrassed online by his parents. This is how criminal masterminds start people!

By the way…Skyrim is AWESOME. Here’s an illustration that sums up my week:

30 hours in, 8 red bulls, 6 bags off cool ranch Doritos and a little bit of my soul lost. I think I may need to call a support group.
