Oh man... i still have to beat Bayonetta 2 so my voting isn't as good as it could be. I also don't like to consider musou games hack and slash, the same way Devil may cry defined them but oh well.

1. Ninja gaiden 2
2. Devil may cry 4
3. God of war ascencion
4. Metal gear rising
5. Dmc

Hack and slash games need not be like Devil May Cry, that's just one hack and slash game.

I disagree. This was a genre made by devil may cry. Musou games are their own thing.

That lack of categorization is what leads us to the ridiculous action-adventure genre wich can encompass virtually anything.

I would think God Of War, made the genre, more than DMC.

Wolfenstein 3D made the FPS genre. Far Cry plays nothing like it, yet its an FPS game.

A game can start a genre, but other games can expand the genre into new territory, they need not be based on where things started, and Dynasty Warriors plays like what a hack and slash game would play.



1 - 50 - God of war 3
2 - 40 - God of war 2
3 - 30 - God of war 1
4 - 20 - God of war ascension
5 - 10 - God of War: Ghost of Sparta


apparently i dont' play this genre much outside of god of war.

i didnt like what i played of bayonetta. mad world was trash. heavenly sword was okay but not getting my vote. i'd vote for demon's souls/dark souls/bloodborne but i don't think they are hack and slash. going down the list i haven't played anything else on it.

That's good, as you've played the best hack and slash franchise xD

But you should try out Metal Gear Rising, as its very different from the rest and entertaining.
