What are the BEST Wizard, Fantasy-genre games ever developed?

My fondness for all fantasy genre subjects has prompt me to do my research on the best Fantasy games there is. Having done so, I have written an article that compiles a list of 15 Fantasy games where I can play as a mage. These listed games are immensely fun and tell epic tales for those who hunger for such good Fantasy stories.

Magicka 2

Magicka 2

Many years have passed since the events of the first Magicka game in 2011. In Magicka 2, new forces of evil have risen to threaten this Norse-mythology based fantasy world. You, as the Wizard, must come out of retirement for another fun and chaotically hilarious co-op adventure.
You and your wizard comrades will explore the land of Midgard, fight Goblins and Orcs and do their best not to kill each other in the crossfire, just to save the life of a prophesied child. But no pressure, for you, will be guided by your tutor, Vlad who is definitely, NOT a vampire! Bleeigh!
