As the saying goes, truth can be stranger than fiction. It’s no wonder that history has endlessly fascinated us as a species; there are some incredible stories that have unfolded over the years! We shouldn’t be surprised then, to encounter some of these giants of the past striding through that most modern of genres: video games.

Let’s take a look at the top historical figures that continue to have an impact on the world of gaming today: (Culture, Nobunaga's Ambition, PC, PS3, Retro, Rome: Total War Complete, Sega, Wolfenstein, Xbox 360)

Wonder if George Washington will be put on the list in the future cause of AC3.

Yeah i agree with number 1 Oda Nobunaga. He is like on every japanese history game.

I'm surprised no one has taken issue with Adolf Hitler being on the list.

George Washington should definitely be on there at some point.

Nobunaga is practically a legend. And while most have played a game with him in it, they're not aware of his impact in the unification of Japan under one Shogun.

A good comparison most can relate to is JFK. What would have been had he not died before his time.

They forgot to add Onimusha onto Nobunaga's part. He became the Demon King.
