What brought you into the ROTK world?

It wasn't just the novel which brought people into the world of the Three Kingdoms. Many people have come to know this story through ways, such games etc. Me? It was Dynasty Warriors 2 which brought me into this world. What about other people?

The first game I got when I bought my PS2 was DW2, since it looked interesting. From then, I was hooked, and wanted to find more and more about it.

So the Dynasty Warriors series really brought me into the world of ROTK. :)

When I played the demo for DW2 a couple years back, I thought it was the coolest game ever. DW3 really got me hooked, so I got the novels. Now I find out there are Three kingdom Magic cards....which I want now :D

I'm Taiwanese, family came from China, but I was born in Taiwan. I first heard about it from this old Capcom beat-em up game about RoTK. After that I tried the RoTK series and then DW, then DT. And soon I'll get the novel (hopefully sometime this week). :)

The novel (picture-book format), then played this Taiwanese-made RTK game, got hooked, read the full novel, got hooked some more, and now I have no chance of getting a normal life.
