Babylon's Fall

Jk, my top 5 would be:

  1. Astral Chain
  2. NieR: Automata
  3. Revengeance
  4. Bayonetta 2
  5. Bayonetta

Have yet to play Bayonetta 3 or Vanquish.

For me, it has to be Bayonetta 2.
It's damn close to being a perfect game; everything from the razor sharp action, to the wonderfully insane spectacle, to the rollercoaster pacing, to the charismatic lead, to the killer soundtrack, all comes together to form a near flawless package of pure entertainment.

There are very few games I have ever played that can match it in terms of sheer fun, as practically everything about it is fine tuned to be as enjoyable as possible, realism, logic, and subtlety be damned.

It feels like a celebration of games as sheer unfettered escapism.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

The Wonderful 101. Easily the best action game ever made.



I enjoyed Bayonetta 2 the most, personally.



Nier Automata without a doubt...and the sales shows.



Around the Network

1. Vanquish
2. Bayonetta
3. NieR: Automata
4. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
5. Madworld

That's all I played. Out of those five I would only consider Vanquish and Bayonetta as great. Nier Automata just misses out on being a great game. MGR:R is a little below that and Madworld was just average IMO.



Astral Chain, ahead of The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2.

The love for Nier Automata is perplexing. I do intend to give the game another go after quitting it after a good 10 hours the first time around, but so much about it doesn't quite come together as it should. Be it the design of the world itself where there's a lot of terrain to run through without offering anything of substance, the artistic choice with its odd occurences of draining out the colors, or the music which reminds me of The World Ends With You where the soundtrack diverted from the usual fare of video games and more often than not doesn't really fit or sound good. The combat, including the shoot'em sections, is the only thing I considered legitimately good, but that wasn't engaging enough when traversing the world itself was such a bummer. The story couldn't keep me going either, hence why I soon stopped after starting on new game plus.

Maybe it is one of the few rare games that begin to click when I give them a second chance - Bayonetta was significantly better the second time around - but it will be a while until I get around to play it again.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV will outsell Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I was wrong.

Astral Chain is prolly on their very few title that managed to encompass pretty much everything that is great about the gaming medium. This, Bayonetta 2 and Nier Automata

I couldn't possibly disagree more.

I thought all of the game's aspects came together very well, the world design was one of my favorite aspects and I thought the extended periods of running around were great (much like any other art form, emptiness is also important in games, to allow the content to feel meaningful), artistically it was beautiful, the soundtrack was one of the best I heard and adapted to many different in-game situations really well. And the story, well maybe it took a while for me to really get into it, but it was incredible.

The combat, especially the shoot'em sections, is the only thing I was somewhat disappointed by.

One game that isn't mentioned in the poll is Infinite Space. I would like to see a modern update to that game on consoles.
