So we're just gonna ignore the fact Gameranx did this same themed list a month ago? 🤨
I agree Ghost of Tsushima is a masterpiece and a great way to end the PS4.
No love for the Samurai Warriors series from Koei Tecmo? I know you have Nioh on there but still…
Genji series, or even old ones like the Sengoku series or Genpei Toumaden?
Pretty upset Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance wasn't here.
Ghost of Tsushima THE BEST GAME I EVER PLAYED
Is Naruto ultimate ninja storm series not a ninja or samurai game? Kinda confused on why they didn't mention it at least
Sekiro is so Effing Hard! I’ve only completed 20 or 25% of the Game. Finished GOT 2 weeks ago it’s my Pick for GOTY next to TLOU part 2! So Awesome, Beautiful and Epic!
Everyone: talking about some ninja games and the top 10 list
Me: why in the fucking hell is ninja blade not mentioned 😡😡😤😤
imo Sekiro > Ghost of Tsushima
soul of the samurai from konami on ps1 is my first samurai game.. it's creepy af but it has memorable soundtrack
Where the hell is muramasa?????
Not gonna lie,Peter is a much better narrator than Ryan,even if he shares a terrifying resemblance with Vince Vaughn in both appearance and voice(I think?).At least,the way I see it.
Samurai Warriors should've been on this list.
Urrrrm Mark of the Ninja anyone?
But yeah we really. Need a next gen Ninja Gaiden game.
The messenger NEEDS an anime
Ghost of Tsushima is a good game but better than sekiro and ninja gaiden?
Am I the only one who likes soul of samurai
RGG studio = no way samurai and ninja themed game sell well outside japan
Sekiro, Nioh, Ghost of Tsushima = please allow us to explain all of it
Aragami is a god game too
Did anyone notice how he called a shuriken a kunai
I guessed the number one out of the gate
What's the name of this game? 0:10
I'm calling bullshit all over this list. Once I saw number 10… i was like… here we go w/ this bullshit, then for #6, a game, i NEVER heard of, to be #6… i wanted to thumb down the video… ohhh but i said, hold that thumb down… u have not played #6… so STFU… but then the comments on #3… but then #2… you know what… hold this thumbs down.
Onimusha series is so underrated, i bet most of people don't know about it nowadays
Nowadays, we have Cyber Shadow where you play as a cyborg ninja and it took many inspirations of the NES Ninja Gaiden games.
No Way of the samurai ? Damnnn
Tenchu z was the shit i love that game
What about little nikita
I've seen a few of these top Samurai and Ninja games videos, and my question is where is Strider and Genji?
So many ads, i just gave up. Just to annoying.
lol ghost of tsushima is the best and its not even close what a joke
Gameranx had 13 entries, two months ago.🤨😡 Step up originality Mojo.
Ghost of Tsushima let’s you play as both.
Man, Sekiro is truly one of my favorite games of all time, made me remember the legendary Tenchu, and the scenarios, enemies and characters are so well builded, man, what a game ❤️
Oh no! A different announcer.
