Bayonetta is a very strange game. It snubs masculinity and macho manliness in a genre dominated almost exclusively by burly, muscle-bound, devilishly attractive men and Spartan war gods. The debates as to whether or not it's a culturally progressive game or an exploitative assault against women still rages on. It employs sex as a deadly weapon where other similar games have used it as a minor and often completely overlooked selling point.
It's also easily the best game in its genre to this day.
A friend approached me the other day and said, "I saw [mutual friend] playing BlazBlue or whatever on Xbox Live, hah, what a fag!" I replied to him, "Sir, I believe you saw me playing BlazBlue on Xbox Live, because [mutual friend] doesn't play those games." He almost had time to correct himself and laugh it off before I reached through the internet, punched him in the face and ate his heart. BlazBlue is that awesome.
