Recently, I’ve been playing lots of Destiny 2, and I’d forgotten how much I love the little resting pose that your guardian does with your gun after you idle for awhile. With bigger guns, they tilt it downwards at rest; with hand cannons & sidearms they’re held pointed towards the sky like a Wild West gunslinger on a movie poster. In both cases, when I come back to Destiny after getting up for a drink of water or to use the bathroom, seeing my guardian taking a break always makes me smile a little. Somehow, a little moment of rest in such an over the top game always does it for me.
What are some of your favorite idle animations in games, and why?
