1. Ninja gaiden 3: razors edge and ninja gaiden black tie for 1st 2. Bayonetta 3. Dmc 3 4. Sengoku basara 3 5. Castlevania: Lords of shadow
Love those games. And say what you will about vanilla 3, but razors edge is literally, in my mind, the best ninja gaiden next to black. 2 was too unfinished and had that damn water dragon....not to mention ms. Bloody flying swallow all the damn time. Beat that on master ninja, called itagaki a psychopath, and put it back.
Not to mention, regent of the mask is a awesome character. Ryu has fantastic chemistry with him.
