Speaking of things that games do right
I don’t think Breath of the Wild gets enough credit for the small but important touches that make the Guardian lasers the beefiest laser beams I’ve seen in a while
The lengthy charge up time, the spark just before they fire, the speed at which they launch (requiring incredibly precise timing to dodge, let alone block), and the huge, screen-shaking explosion that results from them hitting anything. Especially if they MISS, because then you get to see the beam travel past you before dramatically exploding like a missed attack in DBZ, letting you KNOW just how hard it could have creamed you if you didn’t dodge. It’s an attack you can feel the power of in real life, just watching it whiff and obliterating part of the scenery.
It’s a very well-designed animation that doesn’t get enough credit despite instilling pants-shitting fear into so many people
