Eagle eyed Lloyd has spotted a very interesting video on YouTube today as the channel CVG bring us a look at the complete video game history of Games Workshop.

HeroQuest

The video tracks the complete history of game titles that have been published based around the myriad of Games Workshop titles, starting with the 1991 adaptation of HeroQuest, right up to upcoming titles, such as Warhammer 40k Space Wolf and Mordheim: City of the Damned.

Warhammer 40k Space Wolf

Practically every table top gaming enthusiast has played one of the games on this list at some point. For most of us, it might be the excellent Dawn of War series. Personally, I grew teary eyed with pure nostalgia as my own first Warhammer video game showed up; Warhammer: Dark Omens.

More modern games also make an appearance, such as Space Marine and the arcade shooter Kill Team, which some of you may remember Justin and I played on Turn 8 when it first came out.

All in all, Warhammer video games have risen and fallen over the years, with some fondly remembered even today, and others not so much. We all have our favourites and it is really interesting to see how they have changed over the years. The list of unreleased titles at the end has me particularly excited for what will come next.

Which of these games was your first? What one is your favourite?
