The Joy of Super Robot Wars’ Attack Animations

D+PAD writes:

Previously I’ve written about how the turn-based structure of the Super Robot Wars games makes them a perfect depiction of the sort of throwdowns seen in comic books and superhero films – the heroes and villains take it in turns to give it their best shot with plenty of one-liners and shouted dialogues in between. Yet while many turn-based strategy games have short, simple animations for their attacks, the SRW series instead turns those animations into a reason to play and a major selling-point. These five videos show some of the attention to detail put into some of the most surreal and extravagant finishing moves in SRPGs. (Culture, Super Robot Wars )
