I watched Valve’s Half Life: Alyx trailer and it got me wondering.
Valve likes doing things as well as they can. In the trailer you can clearly see that the player character’s hands aren’t attached to arms. They just disembodied floating thingies. Now, the question is, why is it done that way? Is it just too hard to animate otherwise?
