Title: Reasons for killing
Post by: strongbad on September 09, 2009, 07:47:35 AM
Besides self-defense, why do you kill or sacrifice enemies, some of which don't bother you until you get close?

Depending on the enemy, sometimes I get tempted and kill it just so I can throw it onto spikes. Good thing this isn't real life.

Well, it just seems fun to jump on enemies and kill or knock them out, especially when there are a bunch of them in a pit together.

Otherwise, I wouldn't mind throwing unconscious cave men at enemies at all.

I'm usually pretty senselessly violent when I play.  If I'm confident that I can take an enemy out without being damaged or sacrificing any useful items, I'll probably go for it, even if they aren't in my way at all.  Sometimes it turns out that later on they would have presented a problem in some way, and it was beneficial to take them out.  Other times it will turn out that I was wrong, and I'll get myself beaten up in a completely meaningless battle.  I don't know whether it's a good way to do things or not.

I'll avoid them if I can, or if I fear it'll be a potential risk later (monkeys, bats, etc), I'll take care of them just in case. And yes, spikes often make me look at a caveman with one eyebrow raised. :D
