If a horse is in a video game, that means someone busted their butt to get it there. Horses are WEIRD — they're massive animals with weird bendy joints and many, many gaits. It's no wonder why so many games choose to simply treat them as transportation. Even so, some games go the extra mile to make horses unique and meaningful to the gameplay — and they benefit from it massively. Here's why horses are so difficult to get into games, and what we're missing out on when horses aren't given their due.

Shadow of the colossus as early as ps2 eraaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!
Steel Ball Run gonna be masterpiece 😝
5+ years later, Breath of the Wild still rocking with new details
Once in Red Dead redemption 2 I accidentally killed a guy while trying to steal his horse. Ended up having to run away and lose the horse. Later in the game I went to untie my long time horse only to run into the former horse again. He remembered me and what I had done and basically killed me. As an equestrian the whole episode destroyed me emotionally but at the same time, I appreciated the insane level of detail.
You just know…
Tell me about Fire Emblem horses. Now.

The only thing I hate about BotW horses is that you can only register a limited amount of them ToT xd
Putting a major shadow of the colossus spoiler in a video not explicitly about shadow of the colossus is majorly uncool. Especially since it's a game people who love horses, and are thus likely to watch this video, would love. Though it is old, many still have not played it. And there was NO reason that particular shot was necessary over many other possible shots to get your point across.
Amazing. Such a great video! :) thank you for puting in the time and effort to share that with us.
Witcher III my beloved but also the horse riding is wack af like,,, I don't ride horses but im entirely sure geralt is riding roach wrong

I THOUGHT TORRENT WAS A GOAT

ELDEN RING SPOILER AT y4DaAckzfIU&t=10m25s 10:25
Skip to y4DaAckzfIU&t=11m37s 11:37 if you want to avoid it!!
I also think y4DaAckzfIU&t=8m42s 8:42 might be a spoiler for Shadow of the Colossus but I've never played that game myself so I'm not sure. Skip to y4DaAckzfIU&t=8m54s 8:54 if you don't want to risk it
