Good roundup.

I can't help but comment on how games (and films) of every kind don't include the gods, even when they focus upon "heroic" warfare. Given the stories make little sense without the gods, it's disappointing.

Plus - surely there is no better way to learn about the Trojan War than to read the Iliad itself - Robert Fagles' translation is a good one. The story has everything, including a near complete OOB for both sides.

What, as in... read a book? What heresy is this?

I felt my skin crawl saying it - but it had to be said. Sorry.
