It is me... or is like some sort of stereotype.. or even worst, is a reality...???

Are the Dwarves a bunch of drunks? I ask because in each game lore i see them... they are drinking rum or ale.... sometimes beer, and then they have guns...

To keep it simple I think a Dwarf is.... Drunkard with a gun and 1 meter tall.... nothing else...

 

In every place they are related to drinking... in mass quantities, WoW, WAR, GW, and so on...

 

 

Whats the matter with the elves... what about humans...

Old Mythos....

I heard this word some time ago in a video review and from what I seen there, the reviewer mean that mythos are those things that tell you how some stuff work, and everyone use this way of functionality in a bunch of fictions and fantasy...

The common ones.... Water > Fire.....    Air > Water....

The Priest, Monk... or any other religious titles.. usually heal...

Characters with minions are usually necromancers or related to the damn...

Characters that play dirty like an assassin usually wears light armor....

Warriors are by the default the tankers....

Humans fight the Orcs....

Dwarves are a bunch of short, tough and alcoholic... (they usually drink up ale or rum)

Shotguns are AOE, when Rifles are for long range, Ironicly some pistols have a higher dps in short range...

Aliens always have energy weapons...

 

There is other mythos, some of them are loved by people... some others are hated by a group of people because they cause annoyance in people that like things presented in a logical realistic way...

The only one so far I really hate is the old Star Wars mytho: Melee is more powerful than ranged guns.... that is like a kick in the nuts on me.... some other devs are used this mytho... and those games usually meet up the delete key....

From Time to Time

From time to time... a new game genre appear... like "the sims, the sims2 and so on" and what about "Grand Theft Auto" those are some example of emergent genres on the move and they are great...

But if for 10 years they do the same is normally that people get tire, but plz... move along if you are tire... trying to redefine the genre and change it is like making a new one... Like Combat Arms, Exteel those are more of mmofps rather than mmorpg... and yet they use some RPG aspects like earning ranks and money for equipment...

From the mmorpg... that really impress me, with innovation is Guild Wars... and is because is different in the way you use skills and everything... the game is a straight storyline with a bunch of focus on pvp... is so innovative with new ways to do stuff... falling into the peoples ideas that is not even a formal mmo...

Another game who breaks the standard is exteel, is more like a combat fps game rather than rpg... but the aspects of rpg still there, too bad I dont like this game because the usage of an old mytho I hate so much...

more of the same... not so creative devs. or what....

I just notice something strange on people in the past few weeks... they are complaining about the mmorpg mechanics... not games at all... I mean if normally and fully understandable that an incomplete game sucks... but saying I dont want a game with levels... or skills... or want something different.... No grind... or yes we want grind... or no more instances... or more instances....

I dont know if I make my point clear... but is like...  fps without shooting because is more of the same... strategy with out build, recruit and destroy because is more of the same. Racing with out start and finish and 4 wheels because is more of the same.... got the point now....

I mean if you dont like lvling... skills... pushing keys to make things happen, grouping, instancing, and getting gear and most of all pvp... then go and play other genre....
