Motion capture, stuntmen, and choreography are often required to create the elaborate, realistic combat sequences we see in modern video games. These action-packed moments can be pretty neat in-game. Have you ever wondered what they look like in real life?
YouTuber Legend of Micah recently uploaded a video that has seven stuntmen pay tribute to the following franchises: Assassin's Creed, Metal Gear Solid, The Witcher, Uncharted, and God of War.
In the clip, we see these talented stuntmen perform the choreographed moves of their favorite video game protagonists. We see a Geralt lookalike take down several foes at once with fake blood splattering around, Kratos wielding his new Leviathan axe with ease, and more.

The stunts are performed by Ben Aycrigg, Matt Scheib, Alex Hashioka, Tang Nguyen, Billy Bussy, Kevin Kem, and Joshua Mueller. The video was filmed and directed by Micah Moore, alongside assistant director Alex Hashioka.
