CoD series: Best reload animations in an FPS?

#1N7SpectrePosted 10/19/2012 9:17:15 PM
Say what you want about how stale this franchise may be, but I have to admit that they've got some of the smoothest looking reload animations I've ever seen in a shooter.

Yes, some of the weapon reloads may have been the same since CoD4(All the AK and M16/M4 types) but I guess they've been following the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" rule.

Don't really understand but yeah the reloads are unique but unrealistic. I really wish I could one hand "actual" hipfire a revolver ala Red Dead Redemption standoffs. *sigh* One can dream.

TimeSplitters: Future Perfect had my favourite reload animations.

All game reload animations are terrible. There has yet to be a game that doesn't make you re-disengage the clip if you ever have to stop reloading for whatever reason.

You sounded so smart until you said clip. Nice try though, it was an honest effort.

As if that invalidates my post in any way.

Actually it suggests you don't really know much about firearms in general, so it actually kind of does :/

That has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that no game has yet to implement a function that doesn't make you re-initiate the entire reloading animation as opposed to just part of it if the animation is interrupted partway through.

MW2 FAL's reload is still the best.

I don't care.
