One of the most viral videos of recent weeks was the original host of Blue's Clues, Steve, coming back after all these years to remind fans that he'll never forget them. The original series starring Steve Burns ran from 1996 to 2002 which means that a lot of millennials and even some Gen-Z young adults know him well. The video managed to reach over two million likes on Twitter, and because of its incredible popularity, it's gone on to inspire a few memes of its own.

Someone on the Skyrim subreddit has obviously taken some inspiration from the Blue's Clues video and transformed it into what it would be like if a Whiterun guard wanted to tell you how proud he is of you after all those years of adventuring. And although it's a hilarious take on the original Steve video, it's actually oddly emotional to hear a familiar voice talk to us so fondly, because after all, even though it is a meme, many of us did grow up with Skyrim.

Here is a travel guide to sunny Skyrim in case you wanted to get away...

Skyrim came out in 2011 now - it's almost been ten years since the original release and that's a long, long time. We went from teenagers to adults. Students to people with jobs and spouses and maybe even kids. And yet, one constant was the comfort of Skyrim and coming back to hear the friendly (and often hilarious) voice lines of the game's characters.

Ezio1452 was the one to post the video to Reddit and it's got a fantastic reaction from fans. As I said, it's a meme of course but many other people are feeling a little emotional all the same. It's a beautiful little speech, and the voice is pretty spot on too, so it really does feel like the game is reminding you of all the good years you spent playing it. Thanks, Ezio1452, I didn't know I needed this but I did so thank you.
