25 Best Hack'n'slash Games - Devilishly Good List!

We're back with another TOP 25 list. This time of the best hack and slash titles. 2023 brought fresh air to the genre, so let's dive right in!

Table of Contents

Hack'n'slashers aren't doing well. For a long time now, there has been no revolution, and the titles we are most eager to play are usually classics or positions that rub shoulders with MMOs. However, this doesn't mean that the market is dead. The announcement of Path of Exile 2 and the excellent in many ways Diablo 4, as well as a couple of other good premieres clearly contradict this. That's why we revisited our list and updated it to better fit 2023.

We present to you a list of the 25 best hack'n'slash games. You'll come across a few surprises and plenty of classics. We once wrote that the first place might be a surprise, but today it probably won't be one for anyone.


We usually update these types of rankings once a year. However, the grand launch of Diablo 4 and its very good condition required an additional update. Look for the new game at the top of the list. Matt "rassi" Lugowik took care of this update.
