I don't want to spoil the list, but that last picture is epic looking.

If you're waiting for anything from World of Warcraft to appear in my top 10 articles, don't hold your breath...

Although I did consider the Sword of a Thousand Truths as an honorable mention.

And to those who like Soul Reaver, sorry, haven't played it myself, so I didn't think to include it. But Masamune? Or Pyramid Head? Trying to use some mainstream weapons people will have actually heard of...

I'm with a few other people on here. This doesn't quite seem to be a "most amazing swords" or "best swords" list, it's more like a "most popular swords" or "most well-known swords" list. Which is fine, but I don't agree that these are the best chosen or ranked properly by their power/usefulness, and the list is definitely missing some key stuff.

Hands down, The Dragonslayer ("Sword of the Berserk" on Dreamcast and "Berserk" on PS2) is probably one of, if not the largest and most devastating sword ever created and should be on the list at least somewhere. Frostmourne ("Warcraft" series on PC) should be on there regardless of your personal opinion about the games it's in, considering that it is such a key element in the game series' entire universe. In Deus Ex, one of the first "energy swords" was created called "The Dragon's Tooth Sword", which was both amazing and essential in the story, and really should be at the least an honorable mention.

There's also swords from the Ninja Gaiden series, Shinobi, Devil May Cry, Onimusha, other Final Fantasy titles, The Elder Scrolls series, The "Grandfather Sword" from Diablo 2, and a few others that should be looked into.

As for other thoughts, as much as I like Zelda and Soul Calibur, The Master Sword and Soul Edge I don't think should have been the top two swords by far. They are important to the list, but not top choices I believe.

Cringer became the mighty Battle Cat.
And I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.

I need to give darksiders a chance. I keep hearing mixed opinions on the game.

Picked it up about a week ago, give it a shot, it takes 4-5 legendary games and fuses them together pretty damn well.
