(Pre-word: I meant no offense if I make mention of someone else’s tastes and comparing it. I’m not saying my opinion’s better, it’s just different. With that being said, let’s continue)
Hello everybody and welcome back into another session of Weapon on A Stick. Last time we have dealt with the stick itself, Combat Staff… Now if you add a pointy blade on the end of it, the result would be the spear and its subset. Halberds, naginata, pikes. The Spear combines the long reach of a staff and the piercing power of a blade, and sometimes also its slashing power, making it a bit safer to use, and also simpler to use in various modes, just keep your distance and keep swinging or stabbing. It’s also a popular weapon to use on horseback due to its reach. Many medieval cavalries have used the spear or its subsets as their go-to weapon for melee cavalry combat.
So, here I am, listing down the 10 Video Game experts of spear that is entrenched in my mind, they can swing, stab and slash no matter where they are. But first and foremost! I have to mention this: Spear is so widely used in video games that sometimes, its sub families are considered spears itself. This is why for this countdown, I will bypass that one difference, if it’s a subset of a spear, like naginata, it’s eligible for this. Aside of that, only from the games I played… well maybe that has just one subversion (you’ll see it soon enough), but it still applies. Also only one per franchise, that goes naturally.
Welp I don’t think I have more to say for intros. Let’s cut through this countdown at once!
