Here I Am, Rock You Like A Scorpion?

Gregor mentioned this previously, but I want to vent too.  Why is it that a disproportionate amount of action sci-fi/fantasy games seem to have some form of the dopiest of “fiends,” the scorpion?

Currently I’ve identified them in one form or another in:



Resistance 2

Resident Evil 5

Guild Wars (PC)

Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!


One thought on “Here I Am, Rock You Like A Scorpion?

  1. Dead Space somehow managed to turn human corpses into scorpions!

    And even LittleBigPlanet has a brief desert section where scorpions try to drop onto you.

    At least Valkyria Chronicles had the good sense to only make you fight people — unless it was scorpions driving the tanks.
