When DW 1 came out, my hubby rented it. Once I realised the characters had lived long ago, I was intrigued. When the other games came out, I started to look into this history more. I have read quite a few of the bios, visited here daily, and am reading the online book. However I am hoping to get the 5 volume set for Christmas :D It's ironic because in school I hated history, and now I read almost everyday. Maybe all history should be put in video games heheheehe

What an interesting story Kongming's Prodigy, I bet your grandfather was happy.

Well, I played the Nanman Demo of Dynasty Warriors 3, and I thought it was pretty good. So I went out and bought DW3 the next week, along with Kingdom Hearts. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed it, so I did a quick Google search on 'Three Kingdoms' and came up with KMA. Joined the forums, found out that characters actually existed, got swift re-education from Jonathan Wu, and started reading the book. Never finished it, though. I couldn't remember who was who.

Dynasty Warriors 2 got me into RTK. It was a great game at the time like not other I had played before. I realised that it was based on real life and I researched and read the book.

I played dynasty warriors 3 and loved it. Then I read some of the bio's on the game and was like "No one could come up with all this info on their own. So I resaerched it and fell in love the idea of honor, justice, and loyalty above all. For the most part Three Kingdoms made me the way I am now.

I was at the mall when I decided to play this random game (DW3). I loved the chaotic feeling and the hack and slash feel. I bought it as soon as I had the money and been happy with every ancient war game so far.

My little brother played DW3 at his friends house, the for his birthday, went down to get it, but bought DW4. A hardcore Tekken fan, I laughed, then played SSX and loved it ever since, even more than Tekken by now!!!

I heard someone describe Dynasty Warriors 4 in class and the teacher said that was like the Boxer Rebellion. I checked it out and became hooked. Then I bought Three Kingdoms and read that, and I'm now looking for more books on it.

A friend introduced me to the history when the both of us we're studying Canadian history in elementary. Then we just moved onto the DW series for the broadening of our knowledge ^^

It all started when I got Dynasty Warriors 2, than 3. After that, I found the site.
