As the title suggests, what is your favorite medieval themed game. It could be action, adventure, strategy, RPG, or anything.

I thought you were talking about MediEvil for some reason. Hmm, I'd say Final Fantasy VI comes to the top of my head but if I sat down and thought about it I'd be able to come up with a whole list.

Medievil is always a classic game and one of the beloved classics. I would also say some RPGs like FF9 and FF4, also FF6 and quite a few of them actually. Also added to that Morrowind. People could argue FF9 isn't due to the Steampunk themed Lindblum but the majority of it, including Pandemonium is more medivilish brought together than other genres.

if the fantasy is set in a medieval like world it could be included
in that case Dragon age origins

in case not Empire Earth, though technically EE goes from prehistory to the future, but it can be set to only include the medieval ages

Could count yourself amongst that by your own logic. Many fantasy games do have heavy medieval themes.

I thought Skyrim was pretty epic. I think Chivalry: Medieval Warfare's pretty cool. (even though I don't have it, I'm thinking of getting it).

Quite a lot of my favourite games have a medieval setting, now that I think about it.

The Elder Scrolls series
The Zelda series
Final Fantasy 6
The Golden Sun series (to some extend)

Still, I thought FF9 had more a late 17th century setting actually. Of course there are medieval themed areas, but places like Lindblum, Treno and Alexandria seemed to have developed well past the medieval times. There's also airships and balloons and stuff which is even more late 18th century.

It's just how you want to define it.

If you look at the architecture, culture, clothing of characters and the technology I think it's fair to say some fantasy games have a medieval-like setting.

I'd say the first Assassins Creed and Oblivion.

Oblivion may be more fantasy but it captured that medieval feel than any other ES game.

Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and count fantasy games with heavy medieval influences and themes.

Oblivion
Skyrim
Dragon's Dogma
Dragon's Lair
Ocarina of Time
Majora's Mask
Medievil 2 (I didn't play much of the first one, but I beat the second one)


one of the four horsemen of the Metal Hell

Well for simulation strategy, its got to be medieval 2 total war even though its probably the worst out of the total war series, and I never got age of empires 2 despite playing a lot of age of empires 1 and 3.

I have got crusader kings two but i'm more into the simple style of total war strategy as well as the fact that total war is more focused on battlefield tactics which I enjoy where as crusader kings two is fairly simple in terms of battles and is more about overall strategy and management and other stuff that I don't have the patience to understand or get into.

For RPG, I did love playing oblivion for the most part although I have been playing morrowind more than skyrim lately. Did play a lot of world of Warcraft but thats really a bunch of different themes mashed into one, steampunk, sci fi, zombies, medieval, mythological so I wouldn't count that game.

Shooter or first person game? Well mount and blade is pretty awesome at times although I think that game is more "Dark ages" since it involves the vikings which were before the medieval period of knights. I would say With fire and sword was awesome if it wasn't so shit and unbalanced so I wont say it. I didn't get chivalry medieval combat since I already got war of the roses, although I have heard the melee is better for chivalry, i'm a sucker for war of the roses customization.

I did actually really like playing the mediEvil demo when I was a kid but never bothered to actually get the game.

Probably Dragon's Dogma, Skyrim, or even Dark Souls. All have very heavy medieval elements.

If we are considering medieval themed fantasy, I'll say of course any Zelda game. However, I'd say Assassin's Creed 2 if Zelda is too fantasy for one's definition.

Although ACII is Renaissance so it's really not medieval either. Hm.

Mount and Blade doesn't have magic and fairies, but the countries are made up in every game except for With Fire and Sword.

Total War isn't terribly historically accurate either.

All games are fantasy.

Total War isn't terribly historically accurate either.

He said he's after "medieval" games... not "historically accurate medieval" games. It's perfectly reasonable to assume he meant medieval as in medieval ages, of which there existed no magic or fairies. At least not factually, people seeing things they didn't understand doesn't count as magic.

There is quite the difference between fantasy and medieval. Fantasy is product of imagination and fancy. Medieval is based in reality, as it is a time in our own history. Given his request, it sounds like he wants a game based in medieval times, not a game based on spell flinging and pink spikey haired heroines with abilities beyond that of a normal human being.

Also... I'd recommend Chivalry as well... disregarding the fact that I've never played it... it looks like it'd be a great game for someone looking for a medieval fix. As well as War of the Roses, which, to my understanding, is done by the same people who did Mount and Blade.

Fair enough. I still think that Mount and Blade is a bit on the edge because it has fictional nations.

Good choice.

Mine would have to be Stronghold Crusader though. I'm not really considering fantasy games for this poll.

Not really, but you will miss out on some references from the previous title and who the characters are. The journal does a fine job on explaining everything if you're ever lost. The first one is really good in terms of story.

There are a couple of downsides to it such as a slow beginning (as in, the story doesn't pick up until Act 2) and awkward combat mechanics. I say awkward because there are a couple of enemies that cannot be hit unless you use the right style (for the prologue anyway; that changes when you level up). If you have the patience, then you'll like the witcher. Thankfully, they ditched the "styles" and went with a more traditional fighting system in the Witcher 2.

If we're talking medieval games with fantasy, I suppose Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls series, Witcher series, and even the Souls series.

I got bored of it in, approximately, a week, but Skyrim was awesome while I enjoyed it.
