I actually enjoyed them all in any game I played as a kid. I remember always taking a moment in any title to see the idle animations, and truthfully I still do.

One game's idle animation not listed, and should have been, is Conker's Bad Fur Day. That squirrel had so many it was insane. I remember off-hand that he drank something, hummed impatiently, looked at a porno mag, played Gameboy, juggled, yo-yoed, and possibly my favorite, checking his watch and saying: "nope, I still can't tell time."‎
