DMC3, still the best time I've ever had with a game.

That is really tough...
 
If it was DMC4, i might have to pick that. But here i'll pick Bayonetta. The combat might be a little better. The cutscenes, story and badassery of Dante is better though.

I like me some Bayonetta but any Devil May Cry is superior. Yes I include 4 in that, no I don't include 2. (DMC1 is the correct answer though.)

I was asking myself this the other day and I have made my decision. I like DMC3 more than Bayonetta. I will fully agree that Bayonetta plays better, looks better, and better over the top bosses. But DMC3 I played for 50 hours. 50 HOURS! I beat it multiple times, got all this costumes, upgraded every weapon, and did it all again as Virgil. It had a lot of memorable areas and I actually like the story, unlike Bayo. DMC3 is still my favorite action game of all time and I really hope they don't fuck up DMC5 like they did with 4.

My save file for Bayonetta is over 50 hours I think it's at 53, but that's insane for me and for a game like this. 
 
I really can't see how the two games are comparable, I think a lot of people are letting nostalgia get in the way. Either way, the better game is winning on the poll :D

The demo for Bayonetta doesn't do that game justice.  It's better than any DMC game has ever been.

Mmm... it's tough, but I'm gonna have to go with DMC3 for a few reasons. The plot narrative and character development is better, and mostly because the combat is less mashy. DMC3 also has a lot less shit going on on the screen, whereas Bayonetta can be a little nauseating. They still both have the same sense of humour, and Bayonetta is a lot more forgiving with its numerous checkpoints (thank fuck), but I gotta go with Dante. It's probably because of the red tailcoat.

I have to go with Bayonetta as well.

I love both, but the voice in my head yells DMC3.

I think Bayonetta is the better game. The combat is better, the controls are more responsive and executing combos is a lot more user friendly, the weapon selection and combinations you can have are more fun to experiment with, the boss fights are great, the music is outstanding and most importantly, the enemies are not lame punching bags like they are in DMC3. DMC3 enemies barely even try to kill you, except bosses, and I don't think the boss fights were that great except for a few. Sure there are a few enemies which are basically free hits in Bayonetta, like the flying heads, but I seriously can not remember a single non boss in DMC3 that bothered me. Where in DMC1 I have no problem recalling those shadow cats and they shoot their spikes everywhere and were very aggressive enemies.

Yes i think bayonetta improve everything that DMC3 did but i look at it as bayonetta is what DMC4 Should have been. But capcom made some poor choices and it did not turn out as well as it should have.

Man what are you talking about you must have played i different DMC game because i don't think anyone would say dmc3 is a cake walk. But hey every one has there opinions but i think DMC3 was closer to the first DMC then any other game out there.

I continue to refrain from voting.

I have a sneaking suspicion a majority of the DMC 3 votes are really just voting Dante over Bayonetta. I could not believe all the bitching I read online over the character Bayonetta. There's a damn lot of Dante fans out there, many of whom were quite upset Bayonetta wasn't another DMC game, and they made that known by knocking Bayonetta in every forum I read involving the game.

Bayonetta is awesome. Yet I have never been a fan of DMC games.
