Top 5 Bladed Weapons in Games

Graham from Bag of Games writes, "Swords have always been important in human history and myth. From King Arthur’s Excaliber to Sting from The Hobbit, swords have always held our fascination. With this in mind I decided to list a few of the most influential swords and other edged weapons from video games." (Assassin's Creed III, Chrono Trigger , Culture, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

Pretty good list, but I would add Cloud's Buster Sword (ff7) for aesthetics and maybe the Dawnbreaker from Skyrim -- Undead Nuclear Explosion?, yes please!

I would agree, but I tend to be a pretty plain guy, and I love my classic style weapons.

I'd put the Omni-Blade (Omni-Tool) from Mass Effect 3 in there. That thing only does everything.
ryandebraal  +   725d ago
good call! Didn't even think of that

I'd pay hundreds for one of those.

While the Lionheart is his ultimate weapon, the Revolver is a much cooler looking gunblade, IMO.

Renzokuken!

The butter knife is my top.

It takes up all top five slots because it's so damn good.
