Alternate name: Sentient weapon

The first video game about Sentient artefact was released in 1993.

Namco, Konami and Beamdog has published most of these games

Unlike living weapons, these can be quite inorganic and otherwise not exhibit any signs of life. Usually they exist through some magical, demonic, or otherwise mystical means, but even some Sci-Fi style things are appropriate (A.I., in case it's "trapped" into the artefact).
