Can anyone tell me about some good hack and slash games for PC. I liked Devil May Cry 4 very much and am planning on buying Darksiders. I also wanted Bayonetta and Dante's inferno but sadly they are console exclusives. So suggestions about any other good games in this genre would be very welcome.

You should try Darksiders :)

Definitely get Darksiders (2 is on the way) and if you want a more classic (but way better) approach, Diablo 3 will be released on the 15th of May.

I would surely get Darksiders and its sequel as i have mentioned above already. What i wanted was suggestions about games other than those that i have mentioned :)

Prototype, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and the BloodRayne series just to name a few. All filled with plenty of gore as well :D

Devil May Cry 3 is great. Not sure how the PC version fares though, as I played it on the ol PS2.

You could try Darksiders, but the combat isnt exactly top tier with the easy telegraphing of attacks and poor sense of flow and depth compared to other more recent games like Bayonetta. But Darksiders is a good all around game even if it does come across as a poor mans Zelda with some of the dungeon designs.

Prince of Persia (Sands of Time, Warrior Within, Two Thrones, Forgotten Sands). Marvel Ultimate Alliance has a nice hack-and-slash feel to it. +1 for The Darksiders.

The First Templar. A charming micro-budget game with plenty of heart and ambition.

Diablo 3 is an action rpg, not a hack n slash.

It's an RPG, but everyone goes crazy with inventing subgenres and naming them how they please, so Diablo 3 is anything from RPG, action RPG, action adventure, dungeon crawler to the most popular naming among subgenre labeling fanatics, hack and slash.

No offense but hack and slash on PC means Diablo and Titan Quesnt, not DMC.

Sacred is also good. Sacred 2 is buggy but also not bad. I think that Legend Hand of God, whiel underrated is a pretty good game.

Gonna have to say Diablo III comes out in like 41 days.

Torchlight II sometime in the future, along with Path of Exile, and Eternal Lineage.

Diablo is an action rpg not hack and slash. Plus DMC 4 pc version plays great.

Diablo can easily be considered a hack n slash...

DMC4 is closer to a third person beat-em up.

o.o Diablo is an Action RPG. DMC is 100% Hack and Slash. You said that DMC on PC doesn't mean Hack and Slash. Does it mean on PS3? It makes no sense.

Thread is over a year old. I doubt he wants to discuss the concepts of what is or not a "hack and slash" 16 months later.
