That's kinda weird, but I think only because he looks dead. If they could change the facial expression up a bit....

I think it’s kind of weird but I’m not an open casket guy to begin with. On the bright side, he’s probably just as responsive as in real life while playing a game. (As most of us are.)

I think everyone looks dead during on open casket viewing/wake. But since he is dead and (likely) doesn't care what is happening anymore, I say it is up to the people left behind to do what feels right to them (and helps them find even a quantum of solace).

To each their own. Funerals and wakes are for the living, and some need open caskets and/or Weekend at Bernie's type set ups to say their goodbyes.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

People used to pose with their dead relatives in weird poses. It was kind of scary. You'd see people with a dead baby laying in a crib next to them or a grown person in a chair between an entire family.

Photographs of loved ones taken after they died may seem morbid to modern sensibilities. But in Victorian England, they became a way of commemorating the dead and blunting the sharpness of grief.
