I never thought I would get into button mashing games. I didn’t like Ninety Nine Nights or Devil May Cry. I’ve got Bayonetta (Xbox 360) and have enjoyed it some. But Dante’s Inferno is what got me into the button mashing genre of games. I guess I should stop calling them button mashers now. Maybe a ‘timed response with correct weapon, grapple and a bit of dashing’ is correct, but a little complicated. Anyway, I got into the groove (no pun intended) after starting Dante’s Inferno (Xbox 360) and ended up getting God of War 3 (PS3) and Darksiders (Xbox 360) to go with it. I actually finished all three and thought I’d give you my comparison of them and tell you which one I had the best time with. There are enough reviews out there to tell you more about each game. God of War 3 is only available on the PS3. So if you own an Xbox 360 and wonder what God of War 3 is like, play Dante’s Inferno. Darksiders and Dante’s Inferno are available for both systems.

I gave up on Nintendo when the Xbox 360 came out and got to finish Splinter Cell: Double Agent. I actually still own this game because I’ve enjoyed the multiplayer part of it and have started the single player story again. Splinter Cell: Conviction came out on April 13th, 2010 and I got the Limited Edition for the same price as the regular because of some mess-up with the USB memory stick. I’ve finished it, played part of the co-op story, and some of the multiplayer modes in both split-screen and online. How does it stack up to the other Splinter Cell games?
