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.

i meant to but never got to it.  now it is last gen and dead to me.

Have you tried Devil May Cry?

nope.

1.) Devil May Cry (A bit torn between DMC 1 and 3, but I think the first game had better environments.)
2.) Dynasty Warriors 3
3.) Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep
4.) Diablo 2
5.) Onimusha 3



wow, not even one mention of Onimusha 2?

Ok.. here we go.

1. Onimusha 2: Samuirai's Destiny
2. Ninja Gaiden 2 (xbox 360 version, not the mickey mouse version)
3. Bayonetta
4. Devil May Cry 3
5. Metal Gear Rising



Btw, shouldn't Yakuza count as Hack and Slash?

Onimusha 3 is a fantastic game, no two ways about it. would have given it 3rd place overall just behind Ninja Gaiden 2.

But because i wanted to go with one game from each franchise, Onimusha 2 edged out 3 due to having 5 playable characters....... and it also had Gogandantes "The Greatest Swordsman of all Demons" :)



1. God of War 2
2. God of War
3. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
4. God of War: Ghost of Sparta
5. God of War: Chains of Olympus

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

God of war came after devil may cry. That was the first game in the genre as far as i know.

I guess it did. May have started the genre, but G.O.W. did it beetter, imo.  I've just always been bored with DMC games for some reason. I've still played them all, they just never held my attention as much as G.O.W. did.

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.

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.

I don't agree. I think Far cry is an open world game more than an FPS.

FPS i categorise the somewhat linear first person shooter experience.

The thing is, this trying to say they are expanding the genre is a huge mess. It just makes everything difficult to categorise and you are calling FPS's RPG's at the end of the day. We have to be more specific on our scrutiny or we end up with one category for all of them (wich action-adventure is becoming), wich just defeats the purpose.



1. Devil May Cry
2. Bloodborne
3. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
4. Devil May Cry 4
5. Bayonetta 2
