If you are not familiar with Gauntlet, it was originally a stand-up video game that up to four players could play, as different characters: barbarian, elven archer, wizard, or Valkyrie. It was Dungeons and Dragons in video form, where the characters go through a dungeon and fight…ghosts. Yeah, it was a game where you constantly fight armies, and have to eat food to survive. The game was famous at saying things like “Wizard needs food, badly”, which is practically an internet meme.
Warner Brothers brought back this game, and it is M-rated. The overhead view is mostly the same, but there is a heck of a lot more blood. I was amazed that Gauntlet could still survive in the age of World of Warcraft. Then again, I’m very certain that World of Warcraft was inspired by Gauntlet. I guess it is just a circle of inspiration happening here.
