I am shocked that there is virtually no "WoW dances are the best!!!" posts.

EQ1, you could /dance, but there was no animation. Something appealing about that. More time playing less time /dancing.

It was all business in EQ1.

The best dance is the male Troll dance in WoW (it's a Brazillian fighting dance I think)...and it makes me drool to do that. Even though I'm a lowley pigtail'd Gnome. :(

Best: SWG, with its ability to free-form dance, to mix it up on the fly.

Worst: CoH, where the dance animations were hand-animated, not motion captured, and by a guy who can't dance, at that.

Does tea bagging or flailing your arm around like mad while flying 200 yards from rocket impact/C4 explosive in HL2 or CS:S count as a dance?

I looked up the Troll Dance from WoW (since I don't play) and it's Capoeira. It's a Brazilian martial arts form. Check out 'Only the strong', it's like the only movie ever based around the form.

Definitely Guild Wars...so fluid and great variety by class. Plus, with the best-looking chars in any MMO, it's an easy win.

Hmm.. the fallen earth dances are pretty awesome ( based off of that video)...
SWG had some fun dancing too...
WoW, too, has some pretty nifty dances.

But... I think hands down my favorite has to be Dark Age of Camelot.

Was it big, long extended motion captured goodness like the above mentioned games? No. It was a 2 second long jib that was the /perfect/ thing to type right after you leveled, or you got an awesome drop, or you won a grand battle, or downed something big and scary or...

Just a simple, quick /dance!

while I enjoy dancing in other games... DAOC will always have a special place in my heart.

The fact that the Blood Elves in WoW do the napolean dynamite dance is just uber.
