Games have 'poorly animated looks' compared to Battlefield 3 - DICE

Battlfield 3 developer, DICE, made the game's animations one of the core focuses during development to counter the "shit" animations seen in other shooters.

EA Games vice president, Patrick Soderlund, says the development team sat down and spoke about getting maximum impact on screen where they could give the player an experience that they hadn't experienced before.

"We dissected every shooter game that was on the market and the first thing that we saw was animation," he went on. "Animation was, frankly, shit. And now if you play Battlefield 3 and then you play any other game you almost instantly think about how poorly animated [the other game] looks, because the systems underlying it aren't good."

He explained how DICE used the ANT system used in EA Sports' games like FIFA to improve Battlefield 3's animations.

"The animation director said one day: 'Hold on a minute, why aren't we using that animation engine, it's fantastic!' The next day an email went out, and they started talking about it."

What do you think of the animations in Battlefield 3?

Although they make brilliant games.
the guy is right, but talks like he deserves to take credit for it. the credit is to the people that actually made bf3, not the politics
They're okay, I suppose, I don't think I ever really stay still long enough when I'm playing to notice. I guess I'll pay more attention next time I'm playing.
BF3 animations were great after they sorted out the bugs.

To be honest, I think all games are improving. I noticed a real fluidity in Hitman: Absolution in character movement, although it can be hit and miss.
The way I read it, it looks like DICE was also attacking fellow EA Games studio BioWare's Mass Effect Trilogy, But at least BioWare didn't develop and release a buggy game called Medal Of Honor: Warfighter.
EA still trying to make their dicks look bigger with BF3. [Facepalm]
I like how EA modelled the movement of body parts on real humans, like how they modelled the necks on Gwyneth Paltrow.
Get the Adobe Flash Player to see this video.
