Simple and fun!

February 13, 2022

Skyrim is a world full of opportunities for modders to create their very own missions, activities, and hobbies. But even if you are not a modder, you can still find some extraordinary things inside the vanilla version of Skyrim, such as playing Basketball!

It’s a common thing in Skyrim that you might have spent thousands of hours playing, but there is always something new to do!

Exploring Skyrim‘s world never lets you down. It’s always rewarding to take a look at every corner of the game, search every house, and read every letter or book that you find.


Recently, a Skyrim player has created a modern hobby in the ancient world of the game for himself using some very simple objects.

All You Need for Skyrim: Basketball Edition Are Some Cabbages and a Basket

A Reddit user recently shared brief footage of playing some basketball in Skyrim, and while it’s not that kind of basketball you may think of, it’s still fun.

The player is using the magical abilities in Skyrim to pick up and throw objects as the main mechanic of playing basketball. And while there aren’t any balls in Skyrim, he uses some Cabbages instead.

Well, the only remaining object is a ring that should be like 3 meters above the ground. While finding something like that seems tough, the player uses an empty basket placed on the ground. And that’s it! Now, start training your basketball skills in an era that used to be no basketball games!

The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim is now available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. A new enhancement update last year added some visual improvements to the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
