    Yeah, your right it just depends on the artist

    Do you believe in the uncanny valley? If so, do you think we've been hitting it a bit hard with recent video games? These days, animation that looks slightly off makes me feel queasy instead of funny.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. Do you mean that recent video games are slipping into the uncanny valley too much, or that we're too hard on today's advanced technology?

    It can be either, or both, seeing as they are related (sometimes, even said advanced technology isn't enough to hide certain shortcomings... or the ineptitude of animators)

    I disagree with your statement. Care to explain?

    I think it's more of a problem with bad animators in the video game industry, but I sometimes feel like that it's exaggerated when you're also looking at realistic graphics at the same time.

    I think modern-day videogame's animations are just fine. It just depends on the game, really. Some look fine realistic and some look fine not-realistic. Really though, I wouldn't say they're failing horribly at all. -w-;;

    An animator's work is extra hard when he/she has to deal with a video game - outside of cut-scenes, anything can happen. It's hard to make everything look exactly right, and most, if not all procedural animation engines either behave strangely or use too much CPU.

    Shadow of the Colossus is beautiful. Especially for a 2005 PS2 game. I just finished watching a walkthrough the other day and.... I dunno.... it was just amazing.

    Actually, I never left.

    When it comes to graphics, it doesn't help that a lot of video games are run on pretty old hardware, i.e. the Xbox or the PS3.

    I don't particularly care that much about it though.

    I used to claim not to care at all about graphics, but recently I have realized that graphics are really important. While you can have a greatass game without good graphics, good visuals improve basically anything.

    On the video game topic, I'll probably buy Fire Emblem Awakening when it comes out.

    I could give a damn about graphics when it comes to consoles, that's what I have a PC for. Also one of the reasons I'm fine with nintendo consoles alone. I literally game with a PS2, 3DS, Wii U, and PC exclusively and I don't mind that I missed out on stuff like Halo, Uncharted, Gear of War, etc. Gran Turismo 4 is fine enough for me, and I swore never to 100% another game in the series unless saves can be transferred over for the licenses. But god damn it do I want to try Forza some time.

    Motion-capture animation is where it's at, you guys. Heavy Rain did that, and look at how it just leaps right over the uncanny valley.

    Except for the completely pointless shower scene.
