What are your favourite game animations? There are some great ones, but there are some that are also not so much.
Such as any herbivore with a biting attack. I refuse to believe that a stegodeus is inflicting much damage, or that if they were to bite it would look like the “sharp air teeth” effect that goes along with it. Especially irritating when the creature would have a more obvious attack, like a tail whip or headbutt. As much as I hate dracorat’s SIDSR, I hate it even more because it runs in and takes a chomp instead of using its horns.
In the “Great” column: the animation for the running t-rex while you’re darting is superb. Do you ever notice that muscle shake in its haunches? That is some much appreciated attention to detail. Kudos to the graphics team on that one.
What other spectacular animations do we take for granted, or terrible ones that we need to chase out of town with pitchforks?
