A few days after this heavy night of drinking, I clicked on Oblivion eager to play. But then a message popped up stating “Insert Oblivion disc into drive.” I was confused; I never took the Oblivion disc out since the last time I played it. Or did I?

As I removed my Radiohead DVD and put the Oblivion disc in, the gears started turning. Did I play Oblivion without me knowing so? When I loaded up the files and saw what was there, the answer was yes.

But it goes further than that.

I am a monster!

I played Oblivion blacked-out drunk and here's what happened (via picture story) was a thread created by user joecool on October 23rd, 2008 discussing the aftermath of joecool's night drinking alcohol in Tokyo, and what happened to his The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion saves.[1]


The thread features the consequences of playing 3 hours and 54 minutes of Oblivion while blacked-out drunk. His shenanigans included naming weapons to "fcuk you UP!", murdering 131 people, assaulting 65 people, stealing 198 items, and stealing 1 horse. He earned a bounty of 99575 coins and an infamy of 140 points. The thread is full of images of corpses lying in the streets of various locations and wine bottles in a pile.



The thread was bumped several times in the years following its creation, and it happened so occasionally that the thread was eventually locked in early 2017 by postal, with the reason "Dead links, dead OP, RIP". As the reason suggests, by the time of its locking, all the links for the images had died. This article was made when some were still available, and other lost images were found over the Wayback Machine.

The thread was linked on various blogs, social networking sites, and the popular forum reddit.[2][3]

Later, on the tenth anniversary of the thread, smurfy posted a Remastered Edition, having gotten into contact with joecool, who had since long departed Facepunch, obtaining not only the three remaining missing images amazingly enough, but also asking joecool some questions about himself as well.[4]
