Are dragons, zombies, or pirates the most overused?

Post by TheHidden01 on Wed Dec 04, 2013 3:03 pm



In every fantasy MMO (and many of the other ones, too), you'll be assured to encounter three types of enemies. There will be dragons. There will be zombies. And because game developers are 12-year-old kids at heart, there will be pirates. The question is, which of these three is the most overused? Which have worn out their welcome the most to you?

My vote is for dragons. Yes, they're huge, ferocious creatures that are often raid end bosses, but when every game has them as their ultimate threat, it dilutes one's proper respect of them. It's like every MMO has a Death Star. More of a big bad doesn't increase fear in the same ratio; it kind of has the opposite effect.

But maybe you disagree. Pirates, zombies, or dragons -- which make you roll your eyes the most? Which would you banish to the land of well-worn tropes?

I never felt they were over-used, especially not Pirates in which I haven't seen them in every game.

I would say Undead is used more than just simply Zombies too, but then I like them, as I like Dragons.

I like all of then anyway, and I would really say over-used just used a lot.
