Discover the majesty of video game worlds without risking your life

New, 25 comments

Other Places, a new video series on YouTube, sets out to celebrate the often unappreciated beauty and grandeur of the video game landscape. We're typically so busy slaughtering humans, aliens, and mythical creatures in the foreground, that the background tends to fade, well, into the background. Compiling idyllic scenes from some of the prettiest modern game worlds — like Dishonored's Dunwall and Bioshock Infinite's Columbia — YouTube user ultrabrilliant provides a tour through their intricate designs that's gracefully devoid of violence and blood spatter. It's like doing a pacifist run through these games without any of the actual effort.
