Video: Skyrim... If its characters were posh Brits

Hello and welcome to the fourth entry in GamesRadar's 'The Posh British Version' feature. It's where the GamesRadar UK team take well-known scenes from your favourite games and imagine what they'd sound like if all the characters were over-the-top, posh, British aristocrats. Sounds odd--trust us, it just works... incredibly well.

In this video we take the opening scenes of Skyrim (opens in new tab), and re-dub all the characters to imagine that--instead of suffering a dread ride towards their execution in a fortified town--our heroes are actually affluent city-types, on their way to a novelty historical mini-break-cum-hunting-weekend in the country. Again--yes--it sounds crazy, but we're confident that you'll love the video.

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
