Time for another blast from the past, folks! This time, we’re taking a good look at Medieval Times. The perpetual impact that the Middle Ages made on the pop culture world may be best depicted in the various video games set during the time period. And within these many celebrated Medieval games that have come about over the years, we have found quite a few fantastic heroes, all serving as anchors in these immensely deep narratives.
On this week’s Nerdist:Play, we’re counting down some of these noteworthy knights as we sort out our list of the most savage video game heroes of the Middle age. Oh, and for clarification: by “savage,” I do mean “bad ass.” That is how the kids use that word these days, right? I hope so. Otherwise, the act of making a witty comeback during social media arguments apparently alludes to one being a cannibalistic murderer.
Who is your favorite Medieval game hero? Is there a Medieval game that you believe is second to none? Unsheathe thy fingers from your pockets and thrust your thoughts down in the comments!
