    I'm going to say Diablo 3's Crusader.

    Maybe it's the incredible voice acting, and how the character is unfailingly positive and goodly, in a grim setting. The game overall is pretty bleh, but the Crusader acting, writing, and abilities are superb.

     

    Smashing demons with the Crusader just feels right.

     

    What about you? Which game portrayed the Paladin the best to you? Videos supporting your post are always welcome!

    Personally I really liked the warrior priest from war hammer online. That class just felt right for smacking things and supporting your group.

    Runner up was the beta paladin from Warcraft before they made it a pile of crap just before release.

    Warhammer Online - god thats a title I haven't heard about in a LONG time.


    They had some very interesting classes, and very well done abilities and designs. It's a shame the overall game was such a mess.

     

    What was the mutant, where you could customize his mutations and they impacted what abilities he had?

     

    Warrior Priests.. I remember them being very strong in PvP. Never played one myself though.

     

     

    World of Warcraft's Paladin has gone through quite the evolution over the years. From basically being a flacid heal/buffer at early release, to eventually becoming a "do everything" righteous god of warfare. I think WoW's Paladin perfectly encapsulates everything wrong with the homogenization of MMO's in modern times.

    That would be the marauder, which was another pretty interesting class. I also found myself playing the while lion a lot since it was so different at the time.

    I am super curious to see what kind of pally we get out of pantheon.
