And if you actually read and understood my posts (such as #77 or #60) you would know that how Valve created the animation is irrelevant to judging the quality and uniqueness of the animation itself.
Quality of implementation, perhaps. That's a matter of opinion and you're entitled to yours like anyone else.
But uniqueness, no. Find me another game whose editing tools include 43 sliders for adjusting facial characteristics and then I'll agree with you. I'd happily agree with you if you were right. But not only are you wrong, you don't know what you're going on about. I can tell you now you won't manage it.
That would be like judging the artistic worth of a painting by the brush used to paint it.
Yeah, and if you knew anything about art you'd know that was actually a valid judgement. Again, not only are you wrong, you are revealing your childish ignorance.
If I had a dollar for every time I had sixty cents, I'd be Canada
