This is a debate that is going to be argued for a long time. Coming up with the best 2D character design and animation course for games is hard because there are many factors that need to be considered when looking at the market. Cultural, personal preference, workload, etc.
There are different opinions on this topic and there will be an answer for every person interested in it.
Some people may believe that this answer is too specific or not applicable to them because they are already doing something else which can help them in their career such as freelancing or working as a game designer.
Other people may think that this question is too broad and asking for too much information since each person's experience will vary depending on what department they wish to enter into the industry in.
