Shame on me...I played Dynasty Warriors 4 before getting into the novel and history. But I got curious after clearing The Nanman Campaign and found kongming.net.

I got hooked on Ancient Chinas history before i ever player DW, infact ive always enjoyed learning history, especially since most of Western History is fake, and im Western. But i read the book after the game, and infact its the only book ive ever read fully, it seemed interesting.

The Games then the book, helps with the encyclopedia in the game to refresh your memory on the main officers too. also read up a lot on greek and norse mythology so games like god of war are great as i know all the beasts and gods that make cameos.

Well, I played DW2, 3, 4 and part of 5 before i started reading the book online, but finished the book about a year ago.
Favourite DW 4 Quotes:
Wei Yan: Death... Impossible!
Dong Zhou: Another Insect, Crushed!!
Dian Wei: Alright, Who's Next!!
Huang Zhong: Another victory for Huang Zhong!!

I played the third game which eventually leaded me to kongming.net which eventually leaded me to find the novel.
