What goes up must come down. A simple scientific theory that's put to good use in the above video (via CVG) from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I can't imagine that the black comedy moment happened by chance; surely there's some kind of mod at work. Frankly, I don't care. This is awesome.
The funniest thing to me isn't the whole "sitting down to watch the murder" thing (though that's plenty entertaining), but rather the delayed reaction of the guards until the arrow hits home. I know it's just a game mechanics thing, but I still have to wonder what those guards were thinking would happen with that arrow after it descended from the stratosphere.
Yes: I anthropomorphize AI-controlled characters. Video games reporting is a lonely pursuit, what can I tell you?
