Bethesda is responsible for some of the greatest video games of all time: DOOM, Skyrim, Fallout just to name a few. As director and executive producer at Bethesda Game Studios – and having worked for the company for 20 years – that means that Todd Howard is responsible for some of the greatest video games of all time too.
But that doesn’t mean he is exempt from being trolled. Currently, the Fallout Wiki’s entry for Todd Howard reads as the following.
“Todd Coward is the Executive Producer and Game Director at Bethesda Softworks. Above him are a whole host of people who deal with the business side of the company. Todd Howard, also known as Todd Coward, once snuck into my house to call me a bitch and drink my pepsi, when all I wanted to do was date a deathclaw. Todd Coward is not a human being, in fact, he is a cosmic force beyond human conception. He is not mortal. Everytime you say his name, you risk summoning him, and everytime we kiss I swear I can fly. I can feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last, I need you by my side.
Todd Coward led the development of Fallout 3, Fallout 4, and Fallout Shelter.”
As far troll wiki entries go, this one wasn’t all that inflammatory, and was actually pretty comical. More than anything it has made us aware that whenever the director and executive producer at Bethesda Game Studios is around you need to hide your pepsi.
It is unlikely that the trolling will end anytime soon, as Howard’s official Wiki page has been altered as well (see images below). One can only wonder what is to come, as E3 2018 and Bethesda’s conference loom near.
We here at The Nerd Stash will pray for the Wikipedia mods in the meantime. Be sure to check back to the site for updates, as well as all of your other nerdy news and needs.
