What's the best weapon in gaming?

This week John Robertson and Stace Harman discuss what makes a great video game weapon and talk through some of their favourite examples.

Does a great weapon need to make sense within the world it exists? Does it need to play a role in the narrative? Does it need to be unique? Should it involve spectacle? What does it say about the game that it is a part of?

Check out our twitter bio below to get involved in the conversation and let us know which weapons you are most drawn to and why.
