I love to discover things in video games with whom I have not expected so at all that surprise me. This can be cool plot twists, such as in the Bioshock series. Or hidden areas, such as Aschesee or the Painted World from Dark Souls. But also really cool and creative Easter Eggs.

As I find, absolutely exemplary for an Open World game.
Dennis is hoped for the game-Test dozens of hours across the rooftops of Villedors, has made countless infected one head shorter and was truly not disappointed by the Open World Game. Unfortunately, he has also discovered a lot of potential, which was unused between the ruins of the Posta Pokalyptic metropolis. To discover more secrets and for cool post-release content, he likes to return to the action game.
