Alright, put down your controller and lets watch and see what the characters do on their own. Some characters are funny when left alone and some are very unique. When you don’t push a button for an x amount of time your character will start doing something random. I chose 11 games (10 different series) in this first of the series.. Tell me what you think and if I should do another one which I might do 25 in a series… Some characters like Sonic get impatient and other characters fall asleep like Mario… Some are goofy and some are strange… Hope you enjoy!

Also, note: There are more Animations to each game, I only selected a few Idle Animations or else the video will be super long…

Definition of an Idle Animation from Wikipedia “Idle animations refer to animations within video games that occur when the player character does not do any action (hence being idle). These sorts of animations are largely popular with action games, where players may rarely be idle and thus serve as easter eggs. One of the first games ever to introduce idle animations on a mainstream basis was Maziacs;[1] the sprite taps his feet, blinks, and sits down. This trend spread to many other action genre games, becoming more complex as allowed by the advancing hardware. For example, in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest, Diddy Kong juggles a few balls if the player offers no controller input for a few seconds.

Idle animations in modern 3D games are used to keep them realistic. In general, games meant for younger audiences are far more likely to have complex or humorous idle animations, while games for older people tend to have more basic idle animations. For example in Super Mario 64, Mario will occasionally look around, and eventually fall asleep, while in others, steady breathing suffices as an idle animation.”
