Thumb reflexes. VR is made for sword games. Having Witcher 3 on a list that praises sword gameplay or combat is a joke. Might as well put Skyrim and Minecraft there too.

Zelda is a very odd pick especially if you're talking about anything outside of Skyward Sword.

No Samurai Shodown or Last Blade is also kind of whack considering some of the titles on here.

Not to mention Kengo and Nioh.


Nearly half of the games on that list test your reflexes with sword combat about as much as Ridge Racer does.

Should have made it 10, it would have looked more legitimate.

Hilarious random list.

Tsushima ahead of sekiro almost killed me :lollipop_squinting:

Also not to shit on tsushima, but the stance system (and general combat) in nioh is far far better and that game is not even in the list, holy shit lmao.

My pick : The Last Blade.

Recent games : Sekiro and Ninja Gaiden Razor Edge are the most demanding ones I played.
