I know that we get into some pretty esoteric topics here in The Daily Grind, but this may take the cake. Wings. Wings on people. Non-functional, purely aesthetic wings, mind you. How do we feel about them?
I’ve noticed over the past few years that these have really been cropping up in a lot of fantasy titles. Guild Wars 2 is a huge proponent of “wings for all!” but even my Lord of the Rings Online Hobbit recently got a pair of the saddest-looking raven wings for a back slot that makes me embarrassed to equip it.
Personally, I think wings are a mite bit too flashy and distracting, but I’m also in the live-and-let-live category if it makes someone really happy to wear them. What’s your take on wings?
