Skyrim has almost too many NPCs to keep up with across its immense map, so it's especially damning when players negatively latch onto some. Tamriel is full of peculiar characters, from werewolves to cultists and vampires, meaning you'll likely never run short of characters to meet, greet, and complete quests for. 

There are some that stick in our hearts for all the right reasons - though it's a shame that there are equally as many who fill us with sheer red-faced rage. And now, one Skyrim player has taken it upon themselves to offer fans the purest catharsis on a daily basis.

Why Is A Skyrim Player Killing Nazeem Every Day?

One Skyrim fan has taken it upon themselves to give Nazeem exactly what he deserves... every single day until the release of Elder Scrolls 6. Remember that the next chapter in the franchise is rumoured to release in 2026, that's a lot of deaths.

Sidek is the YouTuber who has taken on the task. So far, they've sent Nazeem to the great beyond 139 times, and is sticking fast to their pledge to do so until the new title comes out. They've been dishing out creative kills over the course of the challenge - taking to stealing his life's essence as a vampire, shouting him into a lake to be torn to shreds by Slaughterfish, and devastating him with an explosive arrow. 

Why Do Skyrim Players Hate Nazeem?

This labour of hatred seems like a lot of effort, but frankly, it's what Nazeem deserves. The Jarl's political advisor is a notorious figure in Skyrim, and is one that leaps to mind when thinking about gaming's most smug and nauseating figures.

Wandering into Whiterun to be greeted by the man walking past you, only to say "Do you get to the Cloud District very often? Oh, what am I saying. Of course you don't" is the most infuriating thing in the game, and is likely to drag you the closest to committing cold-blooded murder for the entirety of Skyrim's runtime.

Sidek's cause is a noble one, and one he has our full support for. This probably isn't going to spur Bethesda to speed up Elder Scrolls 6 production, but still - it'll help pass the time as Nazeem kicks the bucked again, and again, and again.
