When it comes to multiplayer games online, there are several juggernauts that need recognition. Games such as Counter Strike, Call of Duty, Mass Effect, Day of Defeat, etc.; The list could keep going and going. But, what do these games have in common?...
This is about men hitting each other with swords, and the hitting part works great. Chivalry is a simple pleasure, and a funny game indeed. Question is, are you sure your ready for war?
