There's a great amount of quality action/adventure, open-world RPGs, and fighting games that present the finest sword-fighting mechanics you'll ever see. Whether you're clashing blades with your foe on the battlefield, slashing through waves of bloodthirsty demons, or stealthily picking off the opposition with your trusty katana in hand, these 30 sword-fighting games all provide the thrill of swinging your blade to cut down anyone and everyone that dare tries to defeat you.
