Which game do you feel reigned as the finest hack n' slash action game of the year? Why?

My game of the year (so far) is Revengeance, but as far as honest options in combat, and 'finest hack n slash'- DmC without a doubt. God of War Ascension is a lot of fun, but brings little new to the combat that was there besides being a little flashier, and at points it's a little much and takes away from my playing.

Tl;Dr DmC

Would you all say it's better than the original Devil May Cry games?

Revengeace is the most bad arse, in my opinion, so it takes the cake.

I just wish we would finally get an answer on whether or not the devil cries.

I will say this. The soundtrack for DmC is f%^&*ing incredible.

I'm already picking it up. I pre-ordered the collector's edition. After playing all these games, I just have no interest in Darksiders I or II at all anymore so I'm thinking of trading them in for some of these other games. I'm really getting into hack n' slash titles as of late, but I'm wondering if I should pick up Bayonetta, the Devil May Cry HD Collection, or Devil May Cry 4 instead, or a combination of some or all depending on how cheap they are.

I personally think it is a tad better than the previous games, and a huge improvement in the area of immersion with gameplay. As for the soundtrack, Give it a shot, I hate all but 2 songs when not in game but when mixed in so perfectly it's incredible how well it goes with it, especially with the whole atmosphere.

Whoa now, You didn't say Bayonetta was in the mix. I change my vote in a heartbeat, Bayonetta is the evolution of that genre without a doubt. DmC is incredible, but Bayonetta blew me away.

So Platinum didn't top Bayonetta with Metal Gear Rising?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 12, 2013 9:38:22 PM PDT
In terms of me feeling fully in control of a bad ass killing machine? Sure they did, but the world of Metal Gear, while insane in it's own ways, can't hold a candle to Bayonetta. Imagine if Hideki Kamiya got to make Devil May Cry again in 2010, staring a female lead. Bayonetta also delivers far more length for the money against Risings still high price tag.

I almost finished Darksiders 1 and I was enjoying it quite a bit, but after playing the God of War titles (especially 2), I just can't bring myself to go back to it. The gameplay just feels too gutted in comparison, and now that there all these other action games that also have, IMO, much more fun and engaging combat just from the demos alone, I don't think I'll go back to playing Darksiders any time soon. I bought Darksiders II, but I still haven't played it. Now I'm pissed off at myself because I'm no longer that interested in doing so.

Any idea when DMC will drop in price?

Metal Gear Rising, without a doubt. Game is amazing.

I beat the first boss and haven't touched it since; I'm debating dumping it. I think I just don't like Platinum Games. I think that Raiden should have more dodge maneuvers. Hell, Kratos moves better than Raiden does in Rising.

That is a fantastic description of Bayonetta.

You have to master the parry mechanic. Once you do that, it's better than dodge because you can viciously counterattack straight out of a parry.

I only played the demo of DmC and GoW. DmC is clearly a shadow of what it once was gameplay wise and GoW is the same boring shallow button masher it's always been. Revengeance is in a league of its own like all Platinum games.
