    Under what class / category is a Golem?

    Are golems in the warrior class or a monster class?   To be specific I am talking about golems that are semi-intelligent and use weapons that are molded onto their arms (where their hands would be).   EDIT: I am not trying to re-define what golems are nor am I trying to expand what they could be. I am trying to get a consensus for what other people see them as, now   I am asking about which class they belong in based on their behaviors and attacks and not so much as how they are made or who made them.   As far as classes go.... Right now, I have knight, warrior, monster, cursed, undead, demon, furry, and monster girls. Of course more could be added   The golems will have simple yet powerful attacks. The golems will use swords, maces, and axes that are molded to their arms.

      yes they can but that is not the point of my research.       Okay that was quite the text book answer, but I was hoping to YOUR interpretation. That is why this IS called a consensus.       SO...basically you are claiming that you and your peers are a bunch of idiots.   Oh wait You're not including yourself. Of course not.       Thanks for the set of assumptions you have just made.   But maybe I should have mentioned that I am not making a game with the intention of marketing it.   The goal of the game is to practice the process of game machanics.   While making a few low res sprites, I wondered how I should categorize the golem I am making.   So I decided to ask online.     However, even if I was planning on marketing the project, the game's engine does not have the capacity to handle the requirements needed to categorize a hundred different sprites.   And speaking of that process, IF I was making a game engine that COULD handle the payload and IF I was attempting to create a new original type of golem (like Dragon Age did), first I would get a consensus from a gamer's forum (such as this one), so I would know what has already been done. Then, I would have a sense of what not to do and thus avoid accidentally reinventing the wheel (and being a copy cat).   I too could read every manual of every fantasy game ever made and every Nintendo magazine every made, but I find it more logical to ask actual gamers and get their opinions. After all, it is the gamers that rate how successful gaming companies are at meeting their goals with each game.   Reading a manual or magazine from some game company while they go on and on about how great their characterizations are is not very logical considering their info is going to be very biased and catered towards the marketing of the game rather than informative about the possibilities that they did not consider.       Also, maybe you should go and make a game, successfully market it, and become financially successful before you try to school others on how it ought to be done.   Right now, your smug little comments have no credibility.   And while you might believe you are just trying to be helpful, next time you decide to give someone advice don't belittle their efforts and don't make assumptions or negative judgments about their efforts..it'll only gain you an unfavorable response.

    Well, what classes does your game have, how do your golems behave, and what attacks do they have? Those, I think, will to some extent define where they are placed, and are specific to your game.     that is an intelligent question.   okay.   Right now, I have knight, warrior, monster, cursed, undead, demon, furry, and monster girls. Of course more could be added   They will have simple yet powerful attacks. they will use swords, maces, and axes that are molded to their arms.
