They will occasionally include hidden Easter eggs or extra features that involve incredible attention to detail, adding more development time for things that most people won’t even notice.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Every single character in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion effectively has their own lives and routines that they go through every day. The NPCs have a list of needs that they have to cater for, such as money, food and sleep, and will set about doing so even if the player is nowhere near to them and won’t possibly ever know what they are doing. The incredible level of detail means that some of the characters can begin to have affairs or even break the law and get chased by the guards for extended periods of time.
