Yesterday I made an elaborate point of how, as interested as I am in my video game tourism, I won't be showing any of my straight up, unaltered and unadulterated pictures of these impressive game worlds. Then, today, in a game called Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, I made it to the part of the game taking place in England in the 900's.
And it's beautiful, at times like an old painting by Corot or Constable.
So I took a bunch of in game pictures, prepared them to be tampered with...
and then I thought:
Maybe I'll just show you some of these before I mess with them.
These really are a fair representation of what this game looks like most of the time.
