Social media exploded this week around the animation quality seen in a certain game, but sometimes we don’t do enough to celebrate those that get it right. Be it a character action with some fancy dodges, a first-person shooter with a satisfying weapon reload, or a horror game with shambling foes – there’s a multitude of different types of animation on display.

 

This weekend, we ask you:

 

What are some of your favourite animations in games?

 

Maybe its Nero’s counter-attacks in Devil May Cry 4, or Pyramid Head’s dragging blade in Silent Hill 2? Maybe Ken’s dragon punch in Street Fighter?

 

Have your say over at NZGamer.com, or in the comments below!

Not sure if this counts as it is motion captured but Elena and Drake on the couch. Love the grin she gives.

Otherwise I have always loved the dreadnought explosion in ME3.

I might get a bit of stick for this, as these aren't new games, but some of the old SNES and Megadrive games had superb animations. Aladdin and Earthworm Jim spring to mind instantly.
