Age of Mythology, Rune, Dark Age of Camelot if you play on the Midgard side. Of course, being video games, none of them are all that accurate, but AoMyth and DAoC have some pretty good details that show someone did their homework. AoM actually has quotes from the Eddas in it's manual.

I'll definitely second the Age of Empires series (including Age of Mythology).

play medieval total war. and the viking invasion expansion.

there is a medieval 2 total war now and it is awesome, but it doesn't have vikings, well you can be the danes and they have longboats and troops called viking raiders but its kind of past the viking era. Oh and yeah the game Rune is awesome, although it is very hard.

Valkyrie Profile is an RPG about Norse mythology, and seems pretty cool. It's just that i fucking hate RPG's so i havent tried it yet.

I'd LOVE for their to be a game like God of War but about Norse instead of Greek myths
