Maybe the most addictive game in Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim is an immersive fantasy role-playing video game filled with gorgeous scenery and engaging quests. When they're not scouring for Skyrim Easter eggs, players face a constant choice. Some players choose the path of the hero; they do good deeds, lend a hand to innocent NPCs in peril, and lead a prosperous and morally upstanding life in-game. Others would prefer to watch the world burn. 

One Redditor posed the question: "What is the worst thing (morally) that you've done in Skyrim?" This query opened the floodgates to a torrent of bad behavior. From ending people for simply being "annoying" to filling towns with orphans, there are many horrific actions people can carry out in Skyrim. If someone is feeling guilty about doing something morally questionable in-game, these shocking admissions might make them feel a bit better.

It was messed up.

Braith Had It Coming?

From Redditor /u/xXBeastKusherXx:

Braith was [aggravating] Lars [Battle-Born], so I killed her whole family. In their sleep. And piled them in front of her bed to see right as she opens her eyes. I felt generally disturbed whenever I heard her talk about how her family was dead while she was on the street.

All Those Adopted Kids Are Now Dragon Bait

From Redditor /u/GaryOyster:

When a giant or dragon appears outside my Hearthfire home, I go inside and tell my adopted children to go outside and play.

It's All Fun And Games Until Someone Mistakes You For Bandits

From Redditor /u/patsydragon:

Killed the revelers near Falkreath because I thought they were bandits. Even worse, I left one of them alive because I realized my mistake. He never knew who killed his happy, drunk friends...
