Skyrim Pushes Level of Extreme with Group Cannibalism

November 2, 2011Written by Jonathan Leack

Bethesda have a long history of granting choice to players at a level that very few other series of games can compete with. While the obvious results are the option to control the build of your character, as well as what you choose to do at any given moment, it also entails cannibalism, and Skyrim is no different.

According to the entry for Skyrim on BBFC’s website, Bethesda have once again found room to include cannibalism in their latest game. The rating details state:

A section where you make the choice whether to join a group of cannibals in eating human flesh.

Bethesda are no stranger to the many facets of cannibalism. Vampirism was a major element in the last Elder Scrolls game, Oblivion, where you could become a vampire either by choice or accident, and consequently had to avoid sunlight and feed on victims regularly. Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas are even more extremely examples, and featured health regeneration for those who acquired a fine taste for “strange meat”, and included vendors who sold human flesh at a bargain price. However, engaging in group cannibalism is on an entirely new level of extreme so don’t be surprised if the entire game is more child-unfriendly than you expected.
