Jazz Plus Gunboots

Videos games and music these days make and art form when done right. The right music in the right moments of a game add greatly to the emmersion and over all effect to the events playing out. Many tunes from RPGs, fighting games and countless other game genres have been burned into our brain and we giggle like little school girls and totally geek out when we hear someone use the victory theme from Final Fantasy VII or the codec ring from Metal Gear Solid as their message tone.

Who ever thought Jazzy tunes could go well with a highly violent and very stylized action game such as Bayonetta? After hearing "Myterious Destiny" play out for the first time in game when a group of angels appeared seemed perfect. As I slaughtered the baddies with my boot guns and older woman sexyness with that upbeat jazz playing, it was pure gaming bliss.

It just goes to show that any genre of music can go with any type of game as long as its executed in such a way that it just clicks when you hear it.

I heard it took a hundred man hours for the guys at Platinum Games to sculpt Bayonetta's ass.
