Why Video Games Are Better Than Reality: Part 4 by Isriana Why Video Games Are Better Than Reality: Part 4 by Isriana
For this feat alone I'd be ready to pack my things and move into Skyrim. Sure, I might get myself eaten by a random sabre cat the first time I take a peek outside, but at least I wouldn't have to spend four months coughing and sneezing like I always do in real life. I've caught an annoyingly persistent cold like five times during the past winter alone - I'm telling you, it gets old really fast.
So three things I'd gladly import from Skyrim into my life: Potion of Cure Disease, fast traveling and ability to improve skills just by opening the first page of the book. I'd be more than content with that. :bucktooth:

I would live in Skyrim for both magic and a ridiculously large inventory space. Seriously, that would be both fun and helpful!

Preach!!!! hahahah so true... plus the beauty of Skyrim..and the fact that you never seem to be cold! Even if you strip down to your not-so-flattering-undergarment...that reminds me, I seriously need a mod for sexy lingerie...

Lol. But wouldn't it be cool if you got to stay home for a week or two with case of stomach flu. TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Why not write a fanfiction or make a comic about yourself being sucked into the world of Skyrim? and I ain't talking about you in skyrim with video game physics, i'm talking about if Skyrim came to life and maybe some tweaking with the spells/potions to make the story interest instead of you being invisible.

We need the magical herbs, plants, and other things that exist in these mystical worlds. Yeah, they probably come with a bunch of dangerous monsters, as several ingredients are parts of said monsters, but we need those Potions of Cure Disease and Ultimate Healing. Make things in the world so much long as you don't have a job as a monster rancher.

in real life we have outbreaks of flus, ebola, horrible cancers ext.

in skyrim we have temporary bonebreak FEVER and the worst that can happen is being turned into a badass vampire.

take your pick :P

I completely agree with you on this every time I have a migraine I always wish for a health potion
andreichekov Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2014
I saw a butterfly the other day, and my first thought was "health potion"
crazyforchocobos Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2014
Which is why I go for good old steaming hot bowl of War Won Ton Soup and insane amounts of Gypsy's cold remedy tea and a Hot Toddy before bedtime (the shot of whiskey my mum says will kill the germs) then jump in bed with all the covers and sweats on when I get a cold.

works every time.

Oh and eat a lot of citrus too for extra vitamin C. with my Nutrinullet I might try to develop a cold buster smoothie. I'll send you the recipe once I've perfected it.

i want to go to skyrim so i can kick thalmor ass, become a guild member and kill a dragon (and also bring back cure disease potions to sell for large amounts of money and end cancer/aids)
AnthonyPap07 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2013
Personally i always liked the potions in the Witcher a bit more.You have to drink them beforehand,it is risky considering the toxicity factor and they simply increase stats like Vitality regeneration instead of outright healing you.

If Healing Potions were would be awesome!

sorry to hear that :huggle:

Well, that, the ability to pause time to drink potions, save and reload... and that you can ride on dragons :P

Lol, it's been a year and I haven't noticed. Got to edit that out some day...
Bouncer9 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013
Something that I would love to have in real life is COD style health regeneration. I could get shot, stabbed, burned and fall from a great height and ten seconds later I would feel absolutely fine.
Ahhhh that would be fantastic
ToBeAdvised Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
You wouldn't import you Thu'um... :(
Isriana Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope. I'd just fast travel away from the places where I don't want to be... :XD:
ToBeAdvised Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah, but it would come in handy to have unrelenting force sometimes...
lukaner-Z Featured By Owner May 13, 2013
the last one would be extremely usefull to me
Spazkid1997 Featured By Owner May 10, 2013
Forget a Potion of Cure Disease, I'd just go straight for an Argonian metabolism.
Classic-Dave Featured By Owner May 1, 2013
Same look the doctor gave me when i told him i had 3 lives left XD

The common cold and parasitic insects are two things that I'm positive came out of Pandora's Box.

Damn you reality!!!!
TheMadSinclair Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeahh... I'd head to Skyrim in a heartbeat except for one teeny tiny thing:
they don't have indoor plumbing.
Skianous Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Skyrim would be sooo boring if your character had to stay in bed for weeks everytime he gets injured in a swordsfight... But since potions do such a marvelous work, I wonder why there are still wounded people in temples and soldiers camps ! :/

And then in reality, you die?
Spazkid1997 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
The Potion of Cure Disease doesn't replenish Health, Stamina, or Magicka. :P
Xaliryn Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
So, I saw this...while working at the pharmacy. I seriously should print this out and post it in here. I think I will...
