Over the years of being interested in pianos I developed kind of piano radar whenever I scan pictures or movies even not related to piano at all. I think I look for them unconsciously and always spot even small glimpe of one if it's present on the picture/video.
This of course also happen in video games.
Whenever I play a game (and by working in IT it was kind of unavoidable to cross my path with them) and encouter something resembling piano I always stop, look at its model and textures from all the sides and try to interact with it (whether developers anticipated it or not). Usually it's like - you click on the piano and it just plays random note/melody.
If it's a game that kinda encourages interacting with things by destroying them - piano remains untouched :)

I came across a few [url=https://clips.twitch.tv/LitigiousRelatedFriseeMingLee]clips[/url] ([url=https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/alm4w0/this_random_person_and_i_started_playing_heart/]the other one)[/url] today of piano in one of the mainstream pc/console games that allows playing separate keys. Even black ones are working!
Sadly it appears that you have to hit them with ingame weapon for them to play, but it doesn't seem to harm piano.
