I was reading the thread about te FFXIV "End of an Era" video when i poster pointed out how Bahamut being a dragon was oversuded. Now, i know Bahamut is important to FF and as appeared before, so it's not about that.
But, i do agree with him (her). Dragons are standart in fantasy games, understood, but i think there's a limit to things. Recently, they've been even more ovedone. WOW's Deathwing and dragon army. RIFT'S whole Blood Storm and using Crucia as the face of teh expac. GW2's still as 4 Elder Dragons to go, and even then the most "unique, well known" enemies are dragons. Now Bahamut. I would be suprised to see tons in TESO and NW. Hell, SOE announced "Dragon Prophet" which will ahve over 300 of them.
What i find even more annoying is how the Western "four-legged, winged reptile" style is always the ones choosen. Why not atleast use the Eastern " serpentine" style more often.
So, i would like to know what you guys would use in place of dragons as the main villain for a new MMO?
REMEMBER- You can use monters with "dragonic" features, like Hydras which grow more head or the Serpent dragon i meantioned.
Just be creative.
