Mechanized. If I can customize it, so much the better.

"Neither" and "Both" should be options! Personally, I think it needs to be whatever fits into the game's universe. If machines don't exist, then obviously no machines!

Monster. I prefer subjugating other living things and forcing them to do my bidding.

Sparkle ponies. Neither animal or machine, but divine creatures.

I love creature mounts, but please no more horses and dragons. It has been overplayed, seriously ... I mean it (I know the majority of fans want them).

Also, I would love a game that would allow me to customize my creature mounts (color, armor options, long and short fur, etc.)

It all depends on the setting. I wish sometimes that Champions Online and CoH had vehicle options, but the travel powers fit well anyway.

@JonBuck

After all this time, still nothing for a Batmobile or Bat-Cycle. No Kamen Riders. No "Ghost Riders".

Such heroes do not exist in these games. Sad, really. But then again, those have been my focus for quite awhile. Super-Flying is fun. Super-Running is fun, but it fails on other character concepts.

@Space Cobra And why stop at motorized transit? In a crazy superhero/villain universe office furniture should work too.

Why can't I have both? Who doesn't want a giant dragon with guns mounted on it?

Depends on the game and how well they're done. In a game like WoW clearly the monsters are better (I want to stab people who ride the damned motorcycles).

Overall though? Define "mount". Are ships in Star Trek Online or EVE Online mounts? You can collect them independently of your character just like mounts, and have dozens of them pocketed away awaiting use. If those count, then mechanized wins hands down. Customizable combat mounts ftw.

I think the way it works is mount=land based single person occupancy. So while a motorcycle is a mount, a truck is not. By extension, the ships in star trek or eve would not be considered mount. A fighter jet is not a mount, but a 1-man mecha is.

Just how I see it, not sure if there is a clear definition of "mount".

Both, as it all depends on the game.

Whatever it is, it NEEDS to be a $50 microtransaction and SPARKLE!
