Horses in gaming

What first comes to mind when you think on horses in computer/console games?

The badly rendered and weirdly animated horses that every fantasy game has the characters ride.

That the people who did the animation have no idea how a horse actually moves ... their motion is usually all wrong and every freaking one of the horses I've ever seen in a computer game crossfire. So annoying.

The horses you ride in the first Assassin's Creed, or good ol' Epona.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Yep, and lets not forget the new Zelda game with it's wide variety of horses; with pretty decent animations
(A little epona trivia
)

These gravity-defying chunky monkeys in Skyrim.

Gottie love that @Mewlie lol

The animation in Breath of the Wild actually is pretty good. They even use their body different ways depending on how you move them.

Don't judge someone's horse or skill because they don't compete or work with a trainer.

Sometimes they're the most in tune with each other.

^Yup. The same way the titular characters can sprint for hours at a time and not tire. People aren't exempt from game physics and absurdities, lawl.

First thing that comes to mind for me, is their totally wrong and weird way of moving, and of course, their ability to walk up vertical hills, and walk through stuff like trees and boulders.

Hold on to what makes you happy! If it tries to buck you off, just hold on even tighter!
