Just started playing "Rise of the Argonaughts" on 360 and got annoyed. I don't mind creative license running away with mythology or accepted mythological fact, assuming that exists. I also understand that certain liberties need to be taken to make games, movies and books more interesting to todays generation. That being said. King Jason of Greece has a rather large buddy and I thought maybe they'd name him something like Colosus or the like. But no. Hercules. Really? I've seen this kind of thing far too often of late and it's begining to really annoy me. Mythology, in the most basic form, is where fantasy story telling began in my opinion. The story of Odeseus. Or how Zeus conquered the Titans. Achilles and his ankle. Paris and Helen of Troy, the face that launched a thousand ships. All of them are excellent stories and can be told with a little liberty, like the movie Troy. I litterally read the first chapter of a book I can't remember the title of where Thor and Hercules battled in the Roman Colliseum. If I hadn't borrowed it from the library, I might have just lit the thing on fire right there. Are we as a people so devoid of original concepts that we have to bastardise wonderful and ancient stories to make them more applicable to our generation?
