Long time ago, at a friends house, we went to block buster and saw the new "Dynasty Warriors 2". My friends brother said it was a game about Japan and its history. I didn't look at the artwork or case; we just got it. Later, after playing it, I scolded the fool and said it was China. I was hooked. Later in time, DW3 came out. And after playing that for a while, I got the book. Then, later I found out about the RoTK series. I was hooked once again.

Sure, Roman history and battles can be neat, and Japanese history of the Warring States is,too. But the warring states of China in RoTK really is the most interesting of history and military affairs to me.

Probably because I carried the surname Zhuge and it is my country's national heritage.

A long long time ago I played Romance of the Three Kingdoms with my friends from elementary school. The first RTK game, that is. I also played Destiny of an Emperor, but I don't remember if I thought the two games were related somehow...

I inherited my brother-in-law's PS2, complete with several games, including Dynasty Warriors 3 and Dynasty Tactics. They are gifts that keep giving, to say the least. Though my father had told me about the Three Kingdoms period in the past, and read several stories to my sister and I, I had a hard time remembering who was who and where everything was, but playing the games I instantly grew more and more interested, as well as began reading for myself, the novel and the history surrounding it. So thanks Koei, for stimulating an interest I never knew was there, and enabling me to find thsi community in the process!

I found it out through Dynasty Warriors 2. Right when we got our PS2, we got it because we hadnt played a good fighting game for a long long time.

I was brought into it by my sister's boyfriend, Richard, and DW3. He said he had a game that he thought was the coolest acion game he's ever played(Talking about DW3.). At first, I was skeptical, but then I played it... well, the rest is history. Let's just say it involves countless other gaming series and 3 internet forums.

I started getting involved in ROTK thanks to Dynasty Warriors. It's pretty funny how a video game changed my life (well...not exactly).

My friend had told me that DW was based on actual Chinese history, so that's when I became "attracted" to the ROTK world. But the main reason isn't behind playing DW; it's the history of my nation.
