Man survives bullet, his Elder Scrolls games saved him

Elder Scrolls Anthology saves man from a bullet that was fired through his wall, in real life

I thought going into this story that the Elder Scrolls Anthology saved this gamers life because of a skill he learned within the game, but it physically saved 'verolok' from a stray bullet fired into his house - while he was gaming away playing Prey.




He heard the sound of shattered glass which made him lose attention to the game and see a cloud of drywall float into the room, and when he inspected around his room, he noticed a bullet hole in his wall.




The bullet flew into his physical copy of The Elder Scrolls Anthology, stopping next to the expansions for Morrowind.






Bethesda has reached out to velorok, and I'm sure he has something cool on the way from the developer. It follows another story of Good Guy game developer Blizzard, who splashed out on a gamer who found the source code for the original StarCraft.
