Reminds me of Gladiator

ID: hawyp7s

If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you're already dead!

Father to a murdered son. Husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

If I ever had a computer that could run anything close to that I would know I was in elysium.

Shadows and dust.

ID: haxkdkt

What we do in life echoes in eternity.

ID: hawvb3l

My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the Grass, General of the Meadow Legions and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Weed. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my grass, in this life or the next.

"Are you not well-main-tained? ARE YOU NOT WELL-MAIN-TAINED???"

ID: hawr7is

My first thought. And because I'm old it's among my favorite movies. Lisa Gerrard coming...

ID: hax0009

Definitely immediately thought of Gladiator as well. This movie was playing in at least one screen the whole time I worked at a local theater. It went from one of the main screens all the way to last screen in the building. I forget the number of times I had to do a theater check and one of the grass scenes was on the screen.

I did end up getting paid once to just sit in the theater and watch the movie due to a couple guys being dicks trying to show off to the girls they were with. They were causing enough of an issue for the rest of the patrons that my manager told me to go ask them to scoot over one and just sit next to them. Was surprised at how well it worked.

Yeah that's intentional. AC Origins did it too.

Someone play Stings Fields of gold

Me walking through tall grass in videogames: feels good

Also me walking through tall grass in real life: what the faq is this shit

ID: hawtdxh

There may be snakes too

ID: hawutib

And ticks. And spiders.

ID: hawv54m

Snakes? Where I live you have the chance to catch one of two deadly illnesses from random tick encounters. Tall grass is the enemy.

ID: hawu4ny

It is nice living in a place where wading through grass, sticking fingers into unseen cracks while climbing and swimming in freshwater is safe. Its crazy how many normal things are dangerous in other places.

ID: hawx1op

Watch out for Snakes!!!

ID: hawwnpc

Yup. As much as I love doing this in game, I would never walk in it in real life

ID: hawx7dd

i grew up on the countryside and once every year or two i get forced to collect wild flowers in a wild field in the wild morning. Nothing is worse than going through tall wet grass filled with all kinds of bugs, spiders, ticks and mosquitos early in the morning.

I probably hate it more than anything i can think of (i'd rather eat brussels sprouts).

ID: hawu6pg

Ticks and chiggers, ticks and chiggers.

Walking through tall grass in video games: zero effort, finding pokemon and rupees, grass looks the same when you leave as when you came

Walking through tall grass in real life: awkwardly lift legs to the side to make it easier, stumble over overgrown rocks, faceplant and get stung by a bee, then realize you left an ugly wake of flattened grass behind you in an otherwise untouched field

ID: hawxf8k

I was going to say that whoever programmed this has never walked through tall grass.

Normalize games without HUDS

ID: haxzqd8

Normalize putting an option to get rid of HUDS. TLOU2 did an amazing job with this.

which game?

ID: hawnouj

Ghost of tsushima

ID: hawwud3

Currently on my first playthrough and cannot believe the visuals.

6 : Anonymous2021/08/30 09:42 ID: haws57f

Ah, ingame this is awesome.

In real life I'd be constantly feeling itchy and trying to find all the spiders and other creepy crawlies flying and attaching themselves to me.

ID: hawscbj

Now imagine walking through tall grass just like this, but in Australia..

ID: hawuu7g

No that isn't how it works there. Everything is upside down so the grass covers your face instead of your ankles.

Sometimes the grass walks on you.

Edit: thank you for the hug!

ID: hax0wwu

We don't have grass like that here, if it grows too high it gets burnt by the sun or eaten by Drop Bears.

ID: hax11tl

I don't mind spiders as much as finding tick nests.

Ghost of Tsushima is one of the most finely crafted games period in terms of art direction. Any aspect of the graphics that are lacking are immediately made up for by the incredibly beautiful and colorful saturated art direction of the environments. Very few games have managed to make actually stop and stare at the environments for long periods of time.

It was also my very first platinum, after playing trophy enabled games for over a decade, which says a lot about the quality of the game in general.

Edit: thanks for the awards guys. Went to bed with a couple upvotes on this comment and woke up to a flooded inbox. My favorite thing reading through the comments was hearing how many of you also got your first Platinum from Ghost and I just love that. The world begs you to spend time in it and rewards you for it. That’s how every good trophy list should be.

The only game I've ever played where I have done everything and only logged back in to finish small stuff and felt a need to finish 100%

ID: hawyjog

I platted it on PS4, and then did a fast run through on Lethal+ for the New Game+ Trophy when that came out. Got back into it on PS5 for the DLC, and then looking at the map of incomplete icons on NG+ I instantly said 'I am totally doing this all again'. Just existing in the game world is an absolute pleasure.

ID: hawxrft

Easily one of the most stunning games I have ever played. One of my very few platinums.

Would love to be able to do this in real life without having to worry about ticks and poison ivy.

ID: hawsfxs

You are thinking a wheat field...

ID: hawwbxf

Even dry wheat’s crunchy and hard. Stalks go flying and smack you upside the head

The stalk itself is basically hay.

Also screw haystacks in video games.

Who owns the rights to this game.. Sony?

ID: hawqax1

Yeah, it’s made by Sucker Punch Studios, owned by Sony.

Me when someone tells me to Touch Grass:

12 : Anonymous2021/08/30 08:32 ID: hawnbaf

Seriously one of the prettiest games I've ever seen. And after upgrading to PS5 all the leaves and grass are mwah!

This is like the game my 8 year old self dreamed of when playing ninjas and samurai with sticks

ID: hawnfoa

This footage is from the ps5 director’s cut too! The whole experience is so surreal

Is this game like Dark Souls or is it playable for the average idiot like me?

ID: hax8dfv

Definitely not as hard as Dark Souls. Combat is super fun as you have to switch stances for different enemies. Swordsman, shields, brutes and spears. Then on Iki Island, the enemies will switch weapons causing you to switch stances mid fight. I was hoping for better parrying like Sekiro, but it feels a bit off. Any other questions, LMK friend!
