Why mountains are the best background objects for games

I grew up near mountains and when I saw mountains in games I just assumed that it was normal. But not everybody lives near mountains so why are they usually in games? Well one answer is that most of the NES games I played are set in Japan or possibly Los Angeles. But when you think about it mountains are actually really good background objects. Mountains soar high in the skyline, are usually detailed and are not everywhere on the planet. They make the perfect background object.
