I recently started playing this on PS4, from a PS Now trial. But it doesn't play as well or look as good as it deserves streaming through PS Now, so I bought a PS3 just to play it properly. I can tell I'm gonna be putting hundreds of hours in.

I've grown accustomed to games saying "your choices influence the story", but they never actually do. Ever. But if you guys haven't played this game, almost every quest is exclusive to one of several factions. Every time you take a faction quest, you're locking out 3 others. So you have to do multiple playthroughs to see all the story content, but you can keep all your gear from previous runs, so it's no problem.

The art style, it feels like an 80s TV show. Simply perfect. And the characters, I like all of them. I haven't even beaten the game, but I did get a legit ending by dying in the middle of the story. That was awkward. Apparently there's a crazy number of endings.

Here's a good intro vid.

How about 3?

Or 1 and 2 on the PS2?

Been meaning to get into this series myself.

I started playing 3 a little, and it feels like more of an authentic Samurai game so far. 4 is more of a stylistic swordfighting game with samurai "elements".

1 and 2 are a bit archaic and stiff, but WotS 3 is one of the most addicting games ever.
