So here we are at the end of 2010 and man has it been a quick yet intense year. It feels like yesterday I was marking my calendar for January. I've finished my first year of Uni, and now moving on to the second. Other things have happened too. I've become more in touch with my Religion after an unpleasant incident. Anyhoo, I thought I'd finish with my favourite game I've played this year, and my personal GOTY of 2010.
Yeah I know, the story made less sense than a polar bear riding a unicycle, but what Bayonetta lacks in story it makes up for everything else. Fantastic and fluid gameplay, beautiful art, catchy soundtrack, vast lasting appeal (hell fighting the bosses over and over again is more than enough). So Stop your quibbling, it's about everything you could ever ask from a videogame.
Of course it's not without its flaws though. Some driving sequences drag out too long, and later cutscenes are too lengthy, but these are small blemishes on an otherwise MASTERPIECE. It honestly pounds both Ninja Gaiden 2 and Devil May Cry 4 into the dirt and pounds more dirt on top of them. If you don't like Bayonetta, then you don't like videogames, and you should probably quit playing videogames before you hurt the gaming industry by purchase another COD. Yes, I'm serious (no I'm just kidding do what you want, just as long as you play Bayonetta)
Other honorable mentions this year:
-Super Mario Galaxy 2
-Red Dead Redemption
-Dead Rising 2
-Super Meat Boy
-Mass Effect 2
-Plants vs Zombies (I know it came out last year on PC, but it I also played it on the 360 this year. Good game go check it out, it's also available on iPhone.)
...Annnd that's pretty much it for this year. I'll see you folks in 2011.
