Platinum Games is one of the best things to happen this gen

Lets wind the clocks back to last gen.

Clover makes Okami which is an absolute masterpiece. Capcom responds by saying lol derp we're gonna shut you down. The remnants of Clover go on to create Platinum which is not bound by unholy shackles of slavery to Capcom's idiocy. Platinum lights the action genre on fire and pushes the entire genre forward.

Bayonetta - The best action game this gen, arguably the best action game of all time

Vanquish - The best third person shooter this gen, arguably the best TPS of all time

Anarchy Reigns - Flawed but still a great game considering there aren't any other 3D multiplayer brawlers.

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance looks to be an amazing experience and has grabbed the interest of gamers who might not have cared about Metal Gear Solid (like me). With Hideki Kamiya leading the charge, it is going to be another revolutionary action game that will push the genre forward.

Bayonetta 2 will also be one of the best action games and all it has to do is be just as good as the first. People can't say Nintendo doesn't cater to hardcore gamers anymore because Bayonetta is one of the most hardcore games around.


I dislike Capcom games because they have lost that charm their games used to have. Doing some research I realized that a lot of people who created classic Capcom games have moved on such as Keiji Inafune, Hideki Kamiya, and Shinji Mikami. A lot of them ended up at Platinum Games which is why I think they are the best studio around at the moment.

Decent company but overrated by fanboys. Especially ones with a grudge against Capcom. Bayonetta was a decent action game but it would've been a lot better if they removed the qtes.

Scumbag Capcom - shuts down Clover because of Okami, proceeds to whore it out on Wii and PS3 a few years later.

Am I the only one who thought that Bayonetta was just corny as ****?

I look forward to Metal Gear Solid Rising though. It looks great.

Yes it was corny as ****, it also had an amazing combat system which earns it the spot of best action game this gen.

Smoother than Silk. The best around.

And Bayonetta didn't have that many QTEs... Not really enough for it to effect Gameplay for me anyways and I hate the damned things. And at least they made sense you pressed the Jump button to jump and other things like that.

if you play an action game for Story I don't take your opinion seriously on the matter. Kind of like Rating a Porno on how nicely furnished the sets are (or the story).
