What's really so bad about new Dante...

There doesn't really so bad about new Dante...he's pretty much the same. I mean it's funny cuz everyone says the new one's emo and stuff but the original Dante still seemed emo to me. Honest the new one seems like he'd be one of Dante's college buddies. I just don't see why the way the main character looks affects gameplay for you guys so much. His look is pretty unimportant in the long run...

Dubstep. That is all.

Ninja Theory made two sub par action games. And now they're supposed to make the next DMC game, using the Unreal Engine, no less. That's what effects the gameplay, not Dante's look.

That said, unrelated to gameplay: this new Dante totally looks like a crack addict which I'm not digging.

It's all about respect TC. If players don't respect a character for any reason, they won't play the game.

Have you ever seen a real crackhead? He looks much better than a crackhead. Maybe a alcoholic. But the only reason you guys don't respect him is because of the way he looks, you know nothing about him. The only real difference between him and old Dante is the hair and voice...i mean physically, yea sure he looks less anime, but I don't think theres anything wrong with the character looking like someone you might actually see somewhere...and I can understand the Ninja Theory thing.

Yes, I have seen real crackheads. Unfortunately my nephew died last year so I can't call him up. Not that I would want to, his mind was pretty much gone. He looked pretty much like this, dark around the eyes, skinny, sores on him, beaten, wrinkled, filthy clothing so yes, I can see what people mean when they say that.

I am with Malus, I have no desire to play as this character. The character was already established, why change it to something that the large majority of fans do not want?

If you think the original Dante looked emo....I don't get that at all.

There is no need for realism in DMC. The games have pretty much set the tone all along. To give it "brutal reality" is just one other step away from DMC. If they wanted something new, develop a whole new franchise and leave this one be.

What's really so bad about new Dante...

He looks like ass and you can tell a lot about a person, especially in a video game, by how they look/dress.
