Ever tried getting through a game on the hardest difficulty and though it was a breeze? Well you might want to step your game up and take on a pacifist run-through of your game of choice. A run through of a game in this manner involves not hurting an enemy at all, instead subduing them or turning them away. Many gamers are stepping up to the challenge, seeing how far can they go in today’s open ended games on this path.
Skyrim player Daniel Mullins has shown that with patience it is possible. Coming up with the idea to do it in the world of Skyrim as an Antithesis to his previous ultra-violet character, he created Felix the Peaceful monk, a humanoid cat who calms his attackers with calming magic. Mullins way of play has changed in this run through of the game, with his goal meaning that he cannot accept certain quests or even allow companions who may harm enemies.
This type of play isn’t just exclusive to Skyrim and is even able to be done in games it wasn’t thought to be possible. A search on Youtube bring up a playthrough of Battlefield 3 where players revive enemies as opposed to killing them. So the next time you think that game you purchased was too easy, try to get through its world without harming anyone.
