Epic battles in video games can be hard to pull off. It’s not just about scale (though that certainly helps), but also the circumstances leading up to it that give them weight. So whether it’s a single person annihilating hordes of enemies and shifting the tides of war, or a desperate battle for survival, let’s look at 15 of the most epic large-scale battles of all time.

The fight spills over into the courtyard, with a somewhat awkward but cinematic view.
