My wife and I have been playing “Conan: Exiles” for a couple weeks now, so I figured I’d give the movie a rewatch and boy howdy did the devs of that game really get the setting right. The movie’s version of Conan is much less of the fatal badass that appears for brief moments in the game, and much more of a common man that just happened to be raised from childhood on a wheel of pain that main him the man that Crom wished him to be.
