Hey! Watch! You Forgot to Hit Pause, SNES Idle Animation Montage

Do you remember the first time your video game character got annoyed with you? Idle animations that break down the 4th wall are one of my favorite small touches in video games. I’m guessing YouTube user TropicalContactHigh probably agrees with me as he/she put together a stellar video featuring just about every idle animation you can think of from the SNES:

Spider-man Idle

Where the hell did you go? We’re playing a game here.

Of course some game characters weren’t lucky enough to go into their idle animation as your laziness just left them as on screen fodder for their enemies. Go back and watch it again and apologize to your friends.
