When I tried to explain to my mom that I write for a gaming website, I wasn’t exactly successful and it wasn’t exactly fun (I think she used the word “idiot” at least twice and “useless” several times). I’m not sure about the degree of success attained by Dishonored‘s designer and producer Seth Shain, but at the very least it was a lot more fun, at least for us.

Someone at Bethesda caught the whole scene on camera and it ended up on Youtube, with hilarious results. You can check out the video below, and if you’re a game developer don’t tell your mom she should try your game on “easy mode”, she won’t like it.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
