What is your favorite game with a mythology theme?

What mechanics do you think best fit with a mythological theme? Any and mythologies. I would also like to rule out Cthulu and Zombies. Sorry cool

I guess I like The Hammer of Thor: The Game of Norse Mythology
the most in concept, out of what I've seen.

Pantheon is probably best, as a game.

But, the problem is, I have this thought of a game
with the scope of Pantheon, but treating the topic
somewhat seriously - actually investigating the
early growth of organized religions and civilization.
Haven't seen anything too close to my thoughts on
this yet (and too lazy to design it).

I first thought of Olympos, mainly my fav because it uses a time track. But it only uses mythology for a few events during the game.

Where I think it is implemented best is in Cyclades. This is because in that game you make offerings to the god whose favor you want and the player making the greatest offering receives the divine help of that god.

I cannot believe I have never heard of Asgard before. That game looks great!

I'm starting to see a theme here. WP games seem well suited to Mythology games because of the connection between worshipers and gods.
