Why the Giant Sword?

Why do real swords appear so boring yet video game swords are awesome looking? Billy Ocho -Miami, Florida I think that the weapons in video games or comics would be absolutely impossible to use in real life. There is no humanly possible to even think you would wield a 50 foot piece of metal or pick up a 50,000 caliber tank on your shoulder and launch it….. But it is super fun to fantasize about it.
