Dynasty Warriors is ten years old today! Tecmo Koei is celebrating the tenth anniversary of a game that has single-handedly sold systems in Japan, and single-handedly done very little everywhere else. 

The Dynasty Warriors series is still one of my favorite franchises, despite the fact that everybody hates it, so I thought I'd celebrate a decade of hacking and slashing in the only way I know how -- a top ten list! 

Celebrate the past ten years of medieval Chinese button mashing as we look at the top ten Dynasty Warriors games of all time!

10: Dynasty Warriors 2


In this game, you battle endless hordes of enemies by frantically bashing buttons in a unique battlefield scenario. Two huge armies go head-to-head, and you take on a single warrior to destroy them all with intense combos such as Square + Triangle or Square + Square + Triangle. 

Featuring a deep leveling system, dozens of playable characters and sprawling battlefields full of hapless soldiers and flamboyant enemy generals, this is truly a fantastic and unique entry to the Dynasty Warriors series. It's got Lu Bu in it!

9: Dynasty Warriors 4


In this game, you battle endless hordes of enemies by frantically bashing buttons in a unique battlefield scenario. Two huge armies go head-to-head, and you take on a single warrior to destroy them all with intense combos such as Square + Triangle or Square + Square + Triangle. 

Featuring a deep leveling system, dozens of playable characters and sprawling battlefields full of hapless soldiers and flamboyant enemy generals, this is truly a fantastic and unique entry to the Dynasty Warriors series. It's got Lu Bu in it!

8: Dynasty Warriors 6

7: Dynasty Warriors Advance


In this game, you battle endless hordes of enemies by frantically bashing buttons in a unique battlefield scenario. Several small icons go head-to-head, and you take on a single warrior to destroy them all with intense combos such as X + Y or X + X + Y. 

Featuring a deep leveling system, a few playable characters and small battlefields full of hapless soldiers and flamboyant enemy generals, this is truly a fantastic and unique entry to the Dynasty Warriors series. It's got Lu Bu in it!

6: Dynasty Warriors 4: Xtreme Legends

No huge armies go head-to-head, and you take on a single warrior to destroy them some magicians n' shit with intense combos such as Square + Triangle or Square + Square + Triangle. 

Featuring a deep leveling system, dozens of playable characters and sprawling rooms half-full of hapless soldiers and flamboyant enemy generals, this is truly a fantastic and unique entry to the Dynasty Warriors series. It's got a giant unicorn in it!

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

I'll never get how making an inanimate object or a plant look like an animal or just alive somehow is considered more "out of ideas" than just an animal being an animal. That seems more like the opposite of being "out of ideas" to me.
