6 Games That Put Insane Detail Into Stuff You Didn't Notice

Now that we're in a golden age of video game technology, players are constantly demanding that video games be made as graphically detailed and realistic as possible. However, programmers have been going to insane lengths to show off their attention to detail in other, less obvious ways for years now, and you probably didn't even notice.

These are the amazing little flourishes that simultaneously wow us with their obsessive compulsion and provide a powerful rejoinder to the argument that soaring game budgets are both necessary and entirely justified.

By Karl Smallwood (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, Fallout 3, Halo 3, Metal Gear Solid Series, Super Smash Bros., The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion)
