Dynasty Warriors as we know it turns 15 years old today, so what’s your favorite game?

Mine is super old at this point

I still remember where I was when I discovered Dynasty Warriors. I was in a Blockbuster Video just perusing some games, and my friend shouted that I needed to hurry up so we could get to a meetup of some kind. So I kind of just found Dynasty Warriors 2 sitting there, and the rest was history —  I played it for three days straight, and since then, I’ve played nearly every major entry in the series, as well as a bunch of spinoffs.

Although technically a sequel to the first entry (which was a fighting game), Dynasty Warriors 2 turned the series into the powerhouse it is today, fostering tons of spinoffs and even more recently, a fully-fledged Zelda game. It was released in Japan on August 3, 2000 — just 15 years ago.

You know what? It’s probably still my favorite entry, too. Although I do enjoy the One Piece games and adore Hyrule Warriors, I’ll never forget the multi-faceted campaigns of the second game, and my tireless efforts to max out every character. Really think about it (there’s so many to choose from) and discuss your favorite below!
