What Bushido Blade Did Right

Two samurai face each other in a blizzard, katanas at the ready. As the snow flurries down, neither makes an attempt to strike. One second passes, two, three, as the two warriors seemingly do nothing, except for make tiny, almost imperceptible changes in their stances. Really though, a silent war is raging—a war fought in the mind. Be clear, this is not a battle fought for an audience. Time slowly drips away as the two warriors jockey for position, advancing here, retreating there. And then, without warning, everything happens. A blade flashes in the moonlight. A claret gush of arterial blood leaps out onto the snow. One warrior stands silhouetted against the winter, holding his killing pose in true samurai style. The unfortunate other drops to his knees, and then to the ground. This was Bushido Blade.

In this "Done Right," we take a look at what made Bushido Blade one of the most unique fighters in gaming history. (Retro, Squaresoft)

What sad is that a PS1 game did in terms of overall game elements many modern titles can't even touch.
