Oblivions animations now that I think about it sucked, the jumping animation just looked terrible.

Sonic Adventure

Who runs like that?

I once read a post on Something Awful that described how the pink-haired otakus at a high school ran. It sounded an awful lot like Sonic's style.

Can't remember the name, but there was some korean MMO that was released in western markets this year (the one with the questionable child-like race) and it had this demony race where the female character had this fucked up run where she would arch her back and more or less bend over so you were staring right up her butt. Didn't look bad as in syncing or anything, but it made me feel really creepy =/

Edit: game was TERA. found a video to illustrate, from about 0:40

.. the fuck...

The running animation itself seemed OK, but the way he slid around on the ice while everyone else walked around in it totally unconcerned was hilarious.

Every first person shooter has bad walking and running animation, It just bugs me so much that you have your gun aimed all the time.

This thread is amazing.

#60 Posted by Ravelle (1597 posts) -

Also not official design but still hilarious.

#61 Posted by SexyToad (2939 posts) -

I 'll have to say Assasain Creed(s). The way that Desmond walked and ran were terrible.

I don't think the running looks that bad

YESYESYESYESYESYES! I played the shit out of that first Syphon Filter. Sure Gabe's run is weird, but hardly the worst I've seen in vidya games though. I think it's time to download it onto my Vita, and taser the shit out of some thugs.

I always thought the run in the first Infamous was a bit silly. There are probably worse running animations though.

@familyphotoshoot: This is awesome and totally true! It's like someone dropped a deuce and just kept on running.

I nominate this for thread of the week.

Syphon Filter. I win.

In Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, Soma Cruz ran like a ninny. It was mostly the way he carried his arms.

If we're talking about movement in general, Alpha Protocol's crouch-walk is really bad.

#71 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4745 posts) -

I remember thinking the running in The Last Remnant looked bad. It is just so stiff and awkward looking. Like he desperately needs to find a washroom.

Nostalgia! Just need a little Maths Blaster up in this bitch.

Suikoden IV's running animation is pretty bad, as it's literally just the walking animation sped up, so he looks like he's on fast-forward.

#77 Posted by csl316 (10386 posts) -

Good ol' Syphon Filter.  I don't think of running animations when I'm thinking of games from well over a decade ago.  But it's one of the first things I remember from that one.

#78 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1609 posts) -

The Mass Effect 3 running is pretty bad, but is it worse than Mass Effect 2's running animation? Three steps into a run and my Shepard looks like he's suffering from a concussion.

#79 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5904 posts) -

Zipper or whatever. The game Jeff's Bombcastica was about today.

#80 Posted by yinstarrunner (1252 posts) -

All this talk about Mass Effect running animations reminded me of this gem. Thank me later.

#81 Posted by D_W (1361 posts) -

Oh god this thread has some amazing stuff in it.

But really I'd be surprised if you could find a really good and natural looking running animation.

#82 Posted by Hamst3r (4826 posts) -

I hate the run animation in the 3D Mario games, including the new sidescrolling ones. It's terrible.

#83 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7097 posts) -

There can only be one.

This is my favorite thing ever.
#84 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2993 posts) -

It isn't really a running animation but the crouch/sneak mode in Alpha Protocol made me laugh my ass off when I first saw it.

#85 Posted by kerse (2179 posts) -

There was a jrpg that had a running animation so bad I couldn't even play it, wish I could remember what it was. There was other stuff bad about it too.
