10 Completely Insane Video Game Details Nobody Noticed
Surprising Easter Eggs from DOOM, Bioshock, Spider-Man...
Creating even the most mediocre video game is nothing short of a miraculous achievement - the result of hundreds of talented artists and programmers pooling their skills together for years on end to deliver something to the masses.
And there's no denying that most players take for granted all the minor flourishes and details which go into creating a video game, with developers spending days, weeks, or even months finessing the most fleeting things you may totally end up missing.
As such, it's little surprise that some of the most impressive and unforgettable video game details actually passed us all by entirely - at least until one keen-eyed player accidentally stumbled upon it and decided to let the world know about their discovery.
And so, with some help from the fine folk at /r/GamingDetails, these are the most subtle, unassuming, and yet absolutely insane video game details you've never once noticed.
From WTF Easter eggs to bonkers character design choices, ridiculous pop-culture references, and everything in-between, these are the details both ingenious and bizarre that you absolutely missed - but definitely need to see...
10. Raindrops Resemble The PlayStation Face Buttons - Astro's Playroom
Astro's Playroom is undoubtedly the PS5's most pleasantly surprising game to date - a free pack-in title that few were expecting anything from, yet which turned out to be both a smart, content-rich platformer and a reverent love letter to the history of PlayStation.
The game is absolutely jam-packed with cute Easter eggs nodding to Sony's most loved hardware and software, and makes ingenious use of the PS5's DualSense controller, particularly when the pitter-patter of raindrops on Astro's umbrella can be felt faintly smattering across the controller itself.
But developers Japan Studio actually decided to go one level deeper, by including a sneaky detail that only the most keen-eyed of players would ever notice.
When the raindrops hit a solid floor, look closely and you'll see they form a splash pattern resembling one of the PlayStation face buttons - Triangle, Circle, Cross, or Square.
There's probably no chance you'll catch this if you're still playing on a 1080p TV, but even 4K players will probably need to squint a bit.
