OP  11/11/12 9:47:30 AM#1

All I know is that I love the SWTOR combat animations and it's the best I have seen. I want to know about other MMOs that also have great animations.

What are your thoughts?

I think the combat animations in SWTOR are well done.  The best I've seen is in Age of Wushu.

 animations maybe, but the way characters (especially those with guns) swivel only half their bodies when you target someone on either side of you it's absolutely retarded.

i dont have a problem with the character trying to look at it's target but in SWOTR it looks like they turn their upper body 45 degreese, while the ass and legs keeps pointing straight. so uggly.

i absolutely hated this in SWORT especially since my main (Imperial agent) was a gun whielder.

 

the animations i enjoyed the most were probably AoC. GW2 actually has some very nice animations, however they are really fast.

Age of Conan maybe, specifically the 'killing' animations.

Tera animations are smooth, though I'm partly bias due to the gameplay making the animations feel that much more amazing.

TERAs movements are very impressive, most notably the animations on the actual monsters, like BAMs for example have very smooth animations with impressive effects.

Age of Conan hands down,  This is not an opinion it's fact beacuse they used motion capture.

/thread.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

GW2 and FF XIV.

GW2 for all those middle animations between different attacks etc. It really feels like my characters doesn't repeat the same movement time after time but behaves like a real person.

FF XIV for simple outstanding quality of those animations.

I would really say DDO. Especially for the melee animations and what not. Don't get me wrong, Age of Conan deserves the second place with good presentation, but the way the "fatalities" work just ruins it all. Derp, the transition to those is So Flawed.

WoW? Shouldn't even be included in the list of "good animations". Well, it comes down to personal preference, but I did not dislike over epic warrior animations of smashing the ground with a sword and sending... ******* lightning all around. Same thing concerning the insanely fast animation speeds on most attacks. Sure, DDO suffers from the "fast" animations too, but only under certain situations.

Tera? Looks absolutely horrible, unless you like anime and all that. And GW2? Well, they had a good try, but they overdid it. All the animations are over-epic.

We´re all dead, just say it.

GW2 socialist.

11/11/12 12:26:33 PM#18

Most of GW2's are excellent (except maybe the pistol single shot animation, seems dull).

Also, WoW was pretty smooth.

 What does that even mean... the animations are horrible unless you like anime... I can not even comprehend this statement.

I don't see the problem here. What do you not understand?

 

I was talking about the style of animations: See Dragon Age Origins -> Dragon Age 2 animation argument.

Fluid, more realistic animations > Anime super epic animations.

Are you now able to understand my opinion, or do I need to go more in detail with this case?
