I agree. The oldskool Mario and Sonic 2D platform games didn't use many frames for animations, for example Sonic tapping his foot used maybe 2 or 3. Games like Flashback and Another World used loads of frames - although rotoscoped (Flashback pre-calculated and Another World calculated in real time).

That's a pretty neat trick.
Generally I try to keep my animation frames a specific size (e.g. 16 pixels wide, 32 pixels high) for the main character in my (non-Reality made) game.
