Usually, while the graphics and gameplay might be great, I find that games that do the smaller, graphic features, easter eggs, or more nitpicky and lore type stuff are really worth remembering. Whether it's a side quest, a neat feature, or something else, what'd be something that stood out of a game for you?

One of my votes goes back to the first generation Pokemon games:

I am a huge * souls game fan mostly because I absolutely love the way the game tells stories

In Dark Souls II there is a character named "Manscorpion Tark", his story is very unclear but he makes hints that his master is a great ineffable being of white. Then after completing some tasks that he besets on you he says the following

Spoiler

"What skill. You've defeated my master.
But our master never dies, only changes form, so that he may seethe for all eternity.
Brave human, you have yet to face your greatest perils.
Take these. May joy await you at the end of your travels."

Which is obviously referring to seath the scaleless from DS1, In fact many of the lord souls that you get from the game are in reference or have their origins to Dark Souls 1

There are a lot of things that you kind of have to 'go out of your way' to find but it is really rewarding for the people who love the lore of the game

>dark souls 2 doing anything right ever



Also MGS3 had so many hidden things.
- Spin Snake around in the menu and he vomits in the game
- Lay down on the prison bed and get a hack and slash minigame
- you can kill a boss during a semi-cutscene
- a ton of hidden silly camos

etc etc

Dark souls 2 lacked amazing game mechanics but the story was still incredible, pales before DS1 though

Dark Souls 2's issue is that it's a good game that has to live up to a better game.

Anyways beack on topic; MGS V has some nice attention to details.
-If you use the poop tape you can hide in stalls and nthe guards won't suspect anything
-Cassette tapes in general
-You can cause cars to slip if using your horse's poop
-You can put the child soldiers in a car and fulton them insteas of using the helicopter or the fulton upgrade
-Messing with guards in general
