Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
This is truely one of the better games out there, it takes a full handson approach to a medivial simulation, you start out as single character, and there is basicly no other goal as you set yourself: be a mercenary and hunt bandits, or be a bandit yourself and hunt caravans and peasants, be a fearful warlord and beat the local nobles, or side with them and work for a king. Also the combat is really well done, and can also be played in Multiplayer. Be it as Archer or Crossbow-marksman, Swordfighter or mounted, each have their up and downsides. One of the games i really recommend to play if someone likes medival even just a bit.
