Video Games and Mythology Campaigns
« on: April 01, 2011, 11:11:49 PM »
I'm not sure how many of you enjoy mythology plots in video games. I'm playing 'age of mythology' (plus titans expansion) for quite some time. I like campaigns based on mythology stories. Not looking for MMORPG games because i prefer to play solo due to lack of fast internet connection.

I was looking for games (for single user) with mythology campaigns - something like Age of mythology, Master of olympus, darksiders.  :)

Any other suggestions for these type of games ?

if you don't mind a different genre other than RTS, there are games like Titan Questw, Numen: Contest of Heroesw, Rise of the Argonautsw and Loki. as you may have noticed that there is a heavy slant on greek mythology. i'm not sure about other titles but i'm sure fellow DoCo'ers will fill you in later. ;)

Your request is fairly vague. What sort of mythology are you talking about? Only Greek mythology? Almost everything that isn't real or "present" could be considered mythology. It could even be argued, perhaps, that science fiction is modern mythology.

@deozaan, 'Greek+Egypt+Norse mythology' comes under ancient mythology category, so yes that's what i'm looking for and going to say no to modern mythology (be it sci-fi or post doomsday plots).

@Lanux, nice suggestions. I'm going to see if i can get my hands on titan quest.  :up:

I'd like to suggest God of War and Okami, if you own a PS3/PS2  :)

But then how can you ever prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse on December 21st, 2012? :D :P

There's also the brilliant Rune. It's a bit hard to get into, but once you do. It's a blast from start to finish. The multiplayer part is arguably the best part. But everyone who plays it online have played it for so long it's impossible to enjoy.

@ilovekonoka, thanks for okami suggestion, going to add it in list. As for Gods of war-chains of olympus, played it on PSP.

@Deozaan, lol. I still can't get over my experience with shutter, resident evil and other zombie games.

@Pelbox, thanks for the suggestion of rune.
