It all started with a post on ResetEra’s photos, which was started by user ‘s y’, who had encountered the Jedi Fallen Order sprint animation for the first time, and said: “I just started the ps5 version of the game respawn star wars and I was amazed at the quality of the sprint animation “and encouraged others to share some of their favorites, both the good and the bad.
One game that is mentioned quite a few times in the thread is Nier: Automata, where 2B and 9S take the hit when the sprint button is pressed. Also, Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is another of the games that are discussed in the thread, with a clip of Raiden throwing it against a wall that shows us that whoever suggested it could be right to call it the best.
If you are looking for some of the more realistic running animations, titles like Death Stranding, which goes to great lengths to make Sam move realistically down hills and climbing, and Noctis’s fantastic running animations in Final are also mentioned. Fantasy 15. In particular, Final Fantasy 15 is mentioned throughout the thread, which is reasonable when you see Noctis in action.
Don’t Miss: Lana Rhoades teases her boyfriend during a Twitch stream.
Other games that are mentioned for their animation quality are Assassin’s Creed 3, Watch Dogs 2 and the strange movements of Shadow of the Colossus.
However, talking about the best animated races is easy, but what about the bad ones? The thread also looks at some pretty odd-looking runs, including the mention that the Jedi Fallen Order sprint looks like Cal has had some trouble in the bathroom. What would a mention of absurd sprints be without Mass Effect? The thread highlights Commander Shepard’s rather goofy run in Mass Effect 3 and Ryder’s own weird run on Andromeda at launch.
One game that isn’t mentioned much in the thread is GTA, which seems like a missed opportunity considering the iconic and hideous racing animations from the PS2 era of GTA games. Not to mention the newer games, which have pretty good movement.
