Let's Do Nothing in Video Games

Anyone who has been playing video games for a huge portion of their lives can tell you, if you put the controller down and let the character just idle, there will often be a special animation you are treated to. It varies from character to character, and seems to involve the character either breaking the fourth wall (think Sonic the Hedgehog), which you will see in this video, to characters who just seem bored and want to entertain themselves while you are ignoring them. They are sometimes funny, sometimes snarky, but always incredibly witty and help foster the love most of us have for gaming. It's nerd stuff added to nerd stuff, which makes it even MORE cool.

YouTube User Master of Hyrule has put together this pretty awesome collection of idle animations from many video games over the past years. You don't even have to be a gamer to appreciate the thought and work put into some of these animations, even though the developers were aware some people may never slow down enough to apprecite them.

Well, now we can.

It almost makes you stop for a moment and wonder what other wondeful little things you may have missed in some of these games.
