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!
