    I hope new generation won't create an SJW version of Romance of three kingdoms

    When I was three I wanted to be Liu Bei due to his resilience and righteousness.

    When I was in college Red Cliffs came out, I just wanted to be Liu Bei because Zhao Wei played Sun Ren.

    When Total War: Three Kingdoms came out I started mainly with Gongsun Zan because, hey, White Horse. It's like the British Army's Scots Greys. Imagine the horse being part of the uniform.

    Then when the Eight Princes expansion came out I started out with Sima Ying because I was making chili oil and had a bowl of dandanmian when I started the game, so I thought starting the game from Chengdu was a good idea.

    Nah. The Sun family establishing their own kingdom was all right. The fact that the han dynasty was unable to quell the uprising of yellow turban, which also gave birth to various competing warlords meant that the han dynasty already lost its mandate of heaven. So, its free for all for everyone.

    I’d have to say my favorite art is the marriage of Liu Bei and Lady Sun. You can almost hear the moment Zhou Yu’s plan blows up in his face.

    kind of a stretch saying Sima Yi is smarter than CAo Cao

    Huh, that 'age group' arts seemed familiar, are those free for use materials? Since I think I saw them in Shogo's Japanese channel. I'd like to believe it's free to use by anyone, there should be a source for it, but I don't know where.

    Anyway, this gives better insight on the ROTK novels and its origins. Cool, bro!

    Because it is cool story, even compare to LOTR and GOT ? The question is "why not" ?
    We are not talking about game interest, it is about chinese literature.

    But remember Romance of Three Kingdoms is a novel, not a historical document.

    Chinese history is greatest and deepest history of human kind. They have a lot of foot print left until today. 👍👍👍

    The waves of the mighty river flowing eastward
    Have swept away the brilliant figures of a thousand generations.
    West of the old fortress,
    So people say, is Lord Zhou's Red Cliff in the time of the Three Kingdoms.
    The tumbling rocks thrust into the air;
    The roaring surges dash upon the shore,
    Rolling into a thousand drifts of snow.
    The River and the mountains make a vivid picture—
    What a host of heroes once were!

    And I recall the young Lord then,
    Newly married to the fair younger Qiao,
    His valorous features shown forth;
    With a feather fan and a silken cap
    Amid talking and laughing he put his enemy's ships to ashes and smoke.
    While my thoughts wander in the country of old,
    Romantic persons might smile at my early grey hair.
    Ah, life is but like a dream;
    With a cup of wine, let me yet pour a libation to the moon on the river.

    One of the best contextual takes on RoTK I've seen on youtube. Really well done.

    Because its pretty baller. That is all I need.

    To sum up, its like the Chinese version of the Illiad.

    The Japanese are playing a huge role in making three kingdom popular among the young generation. Countless anime manga and games are made and received huge success in Asia.

    I think the protagonists shifted to ShuHan because they were the underdogs, and everyone loves the underdogs in a good story.

    Even tho ppl viewed Cao cao as the bad guy. His kingdom was the richest and most prosperous.

    You made a really great research and summary. I am a big fan of Three Kingdoms from China. Have you watched the New Romance of the Three Kingdoms TV series? I think that is a good show.

    Three Kingdoms (2010) is recommended by a lot of foreigners, but for me, it grates on my ears because of how choppy the dialogue is, and its delivery. It's really bad.

    I read Romance of the Three Kingdoms growing up, and watched countless adaptations and iterations. One of my favourite is a manhua series called, The Ravages of Time. I recommend everyone to give it a read.

    I love the red cliff movies, and thought dynasty warriors was a fun game a decade or two ago.

    You should do a comparison video about T3K and the Netflix movie Dynasty Warriors.
