RE: Paradox Interactive Games
Mount & Blade: Warband is one of my personal favorites. Actually riding a mount into battle, hitting enemies from a 100 yards away with a bow from horseback and dropping them in 1 shot never gets old. It took me quite a bit of time to it down and become a pretty good mounted archer, everything else I was kind of 'meh' about. I just wandered around the deserts as a mercenary for the Sarranid Sultanate, taking out bandits and rival forces from horseback. It takes forever, but once you get to the point where you have a small and well trained force of 100 men that can take on armies 5-7 times larger, you can really start to influence the world in your favor.
