I have always felt that Vikings provided excellent subject matter for video games, but I often wondered why there weren’t more of them. So I went on a quest to seek out Norse-themed games. I played a lot of them. Some were incredibly well done while others fell short of being what I would consider a video game at all. But after this journey, I am glad to say that there are quite a few more Viking games out there than I have previously realized. So I put together this list of my favorites. The criteria for being on this list? The game either had to nail the source material and stay true to Norse mythology, or it had to give you a solid gaming experience that gave you the sense of what it might have been like to go on a quest as a Viking warrior. So sharpen your axes and tar up your longboats. Here we go.
