Everything in a videogame is deliberately made. Each asset, animation, and line of dialouge was created in the hopes that someone, ANYONE would take notice and feel immersed in the world/story/gameplay just a little bit further. Over on r/askreddit, one thread has the largest internet discussion community sharing their favorite little details that blew you away the first time you saw it. We've highlighted some of the best examples of the times when videogames made you say "whoa, someone actually bothered to make THAT".
