The first video game about Dark knights was released on December 1996.

Kalypso Media Digital, Electronic Arts and Blizzard has published most of these games

This is generally NOT for knights who simply oppose you, wear ominous armor, or even serve the antagonist.

These appear to be knights, but hardly are chivalrous, honorable, or much anything an ordinary knight would be.

Death knights have a habit of being undead knights, comparable to liches. Anti-paladins are outwardly the same as paladins (knights with mystic powers), but serve/worship Evil supernatural beings and have powers reflecting this.
