One of the most enjoyable aspects of any game to me is a fun “magic” aspect. Almost nothing is more fun to me than creating chaos with supernatural abilities. Summoning massive elemental storms in Dragon Age, hurling devastating lightning bolts in Dark Souls, or even going full Darth Sidious in Destiny.
Conversely nothing can be more disappointing than boring magic. So let’s focus on the good. What games, video or otherwise, have your favourite magic and why? Note: I’m using magic as kind of a catch all, I also consider Biotics in Mass Effect and the Force in Star Wars as magic.
