Bethesda are a little bit mental [UPDATE]

Post  RevengeofTHEJORRRG on Sun Feb 20, 2011 4:47 am

Bethesda is holding an intriguing contest for parents planning to have a child by the end of 2011. If the birth of that child coincides with the release of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and the child is named after the game's main character, Bethesda will provide the parents with a special reward.

Bethesda's Pete Hines says that now is the time to conceive if you want a chance at winning. The "unknown" reward will only go to parents of a child born on November 11, 2011 that is given the name "Dovahkiin."

"Dovahkiin" means "Dragonborn" in Skyrim's dragon alphabet, a language designed just for the game. Players of Skyrim take on the role of a Dragonborn, who can use the powers of the dragons against the massive beasts. In the real world, it might not be as cool a title.

It's sort of a joke and an unofficial contest, at least compared to the one run by Acclaim for Turok: Evolution in 2002 where it offered $10,000 to parents that named their child Turok. A disclaimer reads: "Any reward for completing this quest will not ultimately justify the potential teasing your child could - and probably will - endure over its lifespan. Bethesda Softworks is not responsible for your parenting."

Bethesda's reward is a mystery, the name in this case is a lot stranger, and the child has to be born on a specific date, so it'll probably be tough for parents to go along with the contest. When it comes to Elder Scrolls fans, you just never know.

[UPDATE] apparently if you do this, you'll get every Bethesda game that has ever made, and every Bethesda game they make in the future, totally free.
Bethesda, you mental.

Would you do it?

If the prize was getting my kid into a university, and Bethesda themselves would practically finance my kid, like pay for their food, school and made sure he had a NICE home and stuff... then I would do that. But if it's like a 1 time check for a million dollars, I wouldn't do that...

I would still do it for 1million dollars... but I think my wife wouldn't let me have a child called Dovahkiin over a video game character. xD
