Top 10 Ultimate Best Hack and Slash Games to Play in 2019

Best Hack and Slash Games
Whether it’s against humans, orcs, or monstrosities, we’ve got you covered.

Here are the best hack n' slash games to play right now

While we know of hack and slash from God of War and the like, the term hack and slash genre is older than video games themselves, starting back in the days of the original Dungeons & Dragons.

Nowadays, it has budded into many video games where slash you through hordes of enemies and dodge and weave past attacks. Brutal, effective gameplay that mind-numbingly puts you into a zen state of pure, violent bliss.

But at times we forget some of these games get left on the wayside, great games that you should at least experience once.

So to combat this issue, I have compiled and scoured through a list of hack-and-slash games you should be playing in 2019.

10. Devil May Cry 5

Set after the events of Devil May Cry 2, Devil May Cry 5 follows Nero as he looks for a new character known as “V”, who has taken Nero’s demon arm known as The Devil Bringer. The game will be set before Dante’s return from the demon world. All the while however, Nero is dealing with an invasion of demons after a decrepit, colossal tree spawns in the midst of Red Grave City. At some point, the trio will join up and prevent a powerful demon from entering our world and destroying us all.

Reasons to Play

  • Stylish Combat: Merging together a great blend of weapons new and old and three different characters to choose from with combat styles all their own, the fights will always be flowing.

  • Comedy and Wit: As always with DMC games, there is a great sense of humor. The characters, while dealing with grisly foes, can’t help but mock them and almost cartoonishly deal with their attacks. It sounds bad but it’s executed perfectly, creating a fantastic balance of seriousness and hilariousness.

  • The Giant Golem: Not only do you get to fight giant monsters and bosses but in some cases you get to control a giant golem named Nightmare in epic giant monster fights. Do I need to say any more than that? Oh wait, yes. He shoots laser beams as well.

David and Goliath: Brandishing his new robotic arm, the Devil Breaker, Nero strikes a colossal hit on this giant!

Vehicular Demonslaughter: In classic DMC style, Dante wields crazy new weapons in this game such as Cavaliere, a motorcycle that becomes twin handheld buzzsaws!
