Disclaimer One: This thread and these examples do not mean that the animators in Bioware did a bad job or aren't talented. Animation is super difficult, especially in a game like this with hundreds if not thousands of cutscenes and dialogue sequences. It's not the fault of animators at Bioware Montreal, as they've been busting their asses I am sure. If you want to blame someone, blame project management, Bioware executives, and EA for giving the greenlight for this and for not helping out the animation department with what they needed to succeed. The people in charge of hiring and project management and finally greenlighting this for release might have had the most power in making sure that animations were up to par.

Disclaimer Two: Witch hunts, misogynist bullshit, and developer stalking are completely reprehensible and unacceptable. Re-evaluate yourself and the people you follow if you are targeting the people who worked on this game. Going through a person's portfolio is so creepy and abhorrent, the people who did this should be ashamed

Disclaimer Three: This does not mean this is a bad game or that all the other parts of the game are bad. Positive impressions have been explained and there are many other quality aspects of the game so far.

Original post:
I'm sorry for yet another Mass Effect thread, but there have been too many entertaining captures of the animation in this game that I figured we might as well compile them into one single post because they're that good and people need to see.
