Emotional Twitter Thread Honors River, The Real-Life Dog Used In Fallout 4

Oh boy, too many feels at once. May River rest in peace. Joel Burgess, the Director of Cappy Games, celebrated the beautiful life of River who was the inspiration behind Fallout 4's infamous companion, Dogmeat. In the emotional Twitter thread Burgess highlights some of the ways that they managed to infuse River's genuine characteristics with Fallout 4's Dogmeat character.

Many, many folks out there have gotten lost in the Pandora's Box that is "The Sims" video game experience.

We love those moments when it seems like a moment right out of a video game itself, ends up occurring back in the real world. We have a feeling that this is one of those stunts that looks way easier to pull off, than it actually is. For another video game IRL moment, check out this random dude in NYC who was an actual Oblivion NPC
