Video Games

Some notable wuxia video games of the action RPG genre include The Legend of Sword and Fairy, Sword of Xuan Yuan, Jade Empire, and Kingdom of Paradise, all of which blend wuxia with elements of Chinese mythology and fantasy. The Legend of Sword and Fairy, in particular, expanded into a franchise of eight video games, two of which were adapted into the television series Chinese Paladin (2005) and Chinese Paladin 3 (2009).

There are also MMORPGs such as Heroes of Kung Fu and Age of Wulin, as well as hack and slash games such as Bujingai and Heavenly Sword.

Games adapted from the works of wuxia writers include: Heroes of Jin Yong, an RPG based on characters in Jin Yong's novels; Dragon Oath, an MMORPG inspired by Jin Yong's Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils; Martial Kingdoms, a strategy game featuring several martial arts sects which commonly appear in wuxia fiction.

Famous quotes related to video games:

    It is among the ranks of school-age children, those six- to twelve-year-olds who once avidly filled their free moments with childhood play, that the greatest change is evident. In the place of traditional, sometimes ancient childhood games that were still popular a generation ago, in the place of fantasy and make- believe play . . . today’s children have substituted television viewing and, most recently, video games.
    Marie Winn (20th century)

    I recently learned something quite interesting about video games. Many young people have developed incredible hand, eye, and brain coordination in playing these games. The air force believes these kids will be our outstanding pilots should they fly our jets.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)
