...What in God's name is that nightmarish homunculus supposed to be?

Games with the worst avatars:
EQ2
Vanguard
WAR
Lotro
CoX

Games with good avatars:
AoC
WoW (yes they're low-poly but superbly animated and designed)
APB
CO
GW
FE (horrible animations but good-looking avatars)
Aion (although the male 'run' animation is one of the worst, the characters look superb)

What's your list?

I agree with yours entirely minus LoTRO. I really enjoy the character models there. The animations are so-so, but I dig the models.

Oops, you're absolutely correct. My bad.
I agree that the models themselves are okay, but yikes the animations need lots of loving..

It entirely depends. EQ2 with SOGA avatars look great. But I entirely agree with EQ2's normal avatars. In fact I hated them so much my first character was a Kerra

Is it my imagination or does SOE always seem to come up with one of these promotions when a new product is released for some other MMO? I played EQ2 on Day 1, but finally couldn't get past how ugly my character was and the shortcuts they used in development, like how dwarves and halflings don't have a walk animation, only a "running in slow motion" animation. Did they ever make it so you could actually use the player-made furniture?

So much potential wasted because of SOE's practice of piling more content on top of a game instead of fixing and completing the game itself.
