Those of you who appreciate game physics on a massive scale should love this video. I enjoyed watching the barnacles in Half-Life 2 grab bits of barrel debris, but that can't hold a candle to this:
Watch 3000 Barrels Fall Down [And Explode] in Crysis
Ignore the trashy heavy metal soundtrack if you wish.
It almost makes me forget that the old "explosive barrel" is about as institutionalized in gaming as, y'know, the health pack. As a friend, I tell you: do not miss the ending. As the creator says: "I can't look directly into the explosion for more than 2 seconds or my system will crash."
EDIT: Rather than endure the ads and small resolution of the direct link, I'll be linking to Kotaku's coverage of the video instead.
