  1. QotW: The best weapon in any video game has to be the legendary sword of evil’s bane, the master sword. It might be a bit played out for us older gamers, but remember how exciting the first time was? Pulling that thing our of whatever ghastly hole it was shoved into and holding it aloft for all to see? High fiving your brother and then running to the phone to call your best friend? Wandering back into the overworld and one shotting Moblins? Reaching Ganondorf only to realize he has another trick up his sleeve? It is the best weapon in all of gaming not because it is powerful or cool, but because the in game legend surrounding it.

  2. QotW: Crissaegrim from Symphony of the Night. The mechanical effect of running around, holding up a lawnmower. But so much cooler, visually.

  3. QotW: It’s hard to narrow down, but my current favorite is the Engineer role’s weapon in Warhammer Vermintide, because it’s a fucking Gatling gun in the Middle Ages! I cannot explain how satisfying it is to cause a horde of rat men to reenact the Battle of the Somme. It also is super effective against large boss type monsters, melting whole sections of their health bars. Can’t wait to see what 40k weapons these develops come out with in Darktide later this year. Chain swords for everyone!!!
