Listmas 2019: Top 5 Favorite Idle Animations

As you no doubt know (but I need an intro), idle animations have always served as fun little Easter eggs in select games.  In platformers in particular (but not always), I’ve always enjoyed just standing still and watching what my characters do when they’re bored.  Honestly, they’re a great way to add extra personality to…
