Skyrim's main quest can be cleared in around two hours


Bethesda game director Todd Howard has previously spoken about the company's internal speedrun competitions it holds for each of its titles. With The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim rapidly approaching, the company has revealed a new champion: Sam Bernstein from QA.

He critical pathed his way to a main quest completion time of 2:16:10, followed ever so closely by Jeff Browne of Bethesda Game Studios with a time of 2:16:30. As impressive as that is, I'm sure someone from the general public will have an even crazier run shortly after Skyrim's release.

For this achievement, Bernstein was rewarded with a trophy and will be getting a pumpkin pie from Howard. Reminds me of the competitions we used to have here. Our doctors tell us never to do those again.
