He Took Refuge In Skyrim After His Sister's Death. Bethesda Reached Out And Sent Him This.

Video games can be wonderful when you need someplace to decompress, when you need to tune the world out. That's exactly what Redditor lb-Cyber needed during a tough spot in his life.

"On February 21st, 2012, my sister passed away after a nine-year battle with cancer," lb-Cyber wrote in a Reddit thread. Dealing with the loss wasn't easy, as you might imagine. He had a "deep-rooted" depression, and was feeling rather isolated and alone following the death.

So he used the outlets he could find, including Skyrim. It helped. He wrote a Reddit thread about the experience a month ago, and Bethesda reached out. On the anniversary of the sibling's death, lb-Cyber received the art book you see above.

It was signed by all the members of the Bethesda team.

He Took Refuge In Skyrim After His Sister's Death. Bethesda Reached Out And Sent Him This.

Amazing.

"I absolutely was floored, and a day I thought would be absolutely agonizing ended with an incredibly heart-warming and unexpected moment of absolute kindness," lb-Cyber wrote on the Reddit thread.

It's community management like this that warms hearts.

I wrote a silly post a month ago about how Skyrim helped me through a tough time. I didn't expect to receive such a touching response from Bethesda. [lb-Cyber]
