Creatures theme

Includes any kind of creatures with terrifying or otherwise horribly deformed/repulsive (monstrous) appearance, regardless if their personality matches this. Commonly assumed to be mindless savages.

This is for creatures that physically resemble something that could be labeled as monster, not people whose personality is monstrous.

Gamers and game makers tend to label anything that opposes the player as monsters but this tag is NOT for such broad definition of it.

The first Monsters video game was released in 1974.

Sega, Electronic Arts and Konami published most of these games.
