It just looks so stilted. Like, you can clearly see where one sequence of animation stops and the next one begins. And every part of her face was animated without regard for what is happening with the other parts of her face. It doesn't look natural. I can practically see the animator's cursor hovering over it.

Yeah, it's not doing this game any favors that I can't help but compare it to the stunningly gorgeous one I'm currently playing. Horizon's got it's share of jank, to be sure, but even at its worst it shits all over the stuff in this thread.

Serious question, is that supposed to be a human?

The facial expression definitely commands some sort of other body movement as well, arms flailing or something, that's why it looks ridiculous on it's own.

Unless she's partaking in a bed time activity.

I think maybe my standards must have been 'janked' from all the other abominable animations we've seen lol

When I see Jank,it usualyl refers to being unpolished or done in an odd/unsual fashion ,but still overall competent.

But that dialogue scene seems super,super rough to me.

Still, the game could be good.

Its like the voice acting has zero direction and they're just reading lines. The fact that they didn't edit out those awkward pauses is crazy.

Why do SunhiLegend's gifs always look like CG Prerendered cutscenes?

I mean this is really really nitpicking to me. Like I can see that in most 3D animated faces and the gif I quoted masks the illusion well enough (plenty of others do not).

She seriously has the same expression that my 89-year old great aunt often has.

EDIT: i also like that she freezes mid-animation for a second or two

There was something pretty zen about her expression! Old folks can be like that when they're in a calm state! :)
