It's a scientifically proven fact that if you stacked every videogame ever to feature Death as a character on top of one another, you'd be able to reach the moon three times over. However, whereas the default depiction of the Great Leveler is the robed skeleton of medieval woodcuts and 70s heavy metal covers, the launch trailer for 2012's Darksiders 2 posits the notion that Grim Reaping is probably the sort of work for which you need to keep in shape, and for which a shirt is just a hindrance. Death, says Darksiders, probably acts less like Jack Kevorkian and more like the WCW's Sting.
