You can’t help but stop and admire these animations, even in the thick of battle.
Everyone notices the facial and body animations in video games. From the most natural movements like walking and running to simply emoting during key scenes, it’s crazy how far the industry. Of course, when playing a first person title where you spend most of the time seeing hands, the attention given animations is simply astonishing. Let’s take a look at 15 of the best hand animations in video games.
Rainbow Six Siege
Ubisoft’s tactical first person shooter may have had a rough launch but its hand animations were fairly good and have only improved. Watching Operators set up barricades, manage different weapons and bashing through obstacles is still enthralling after all these years. The animations behind abilities have become more imaginative as well – just watch Iana activate her Gemini Replicator, which manifests a holographic version of herself to control, or Oryx who busts through walls without a care.
