DmC: Devil May Cry
Question to pros/antis with sense
The story is better then the other DMC's without a doubt.
It's not. The game is completely bare bones in it's story and the character aren't developed enough to really care for them. The dialogue and voice acting is mediocre at times and the political commentary is immature and goes nowhere, it's almost comical. It's not smart or hip like it thinks it is and when it tries to be funny it's just cringe worthy ("I've got a bigger dick").
The game also commits the biggest sin a videogame can do as well, it's boring. Nothing exciting or cool happens and the game takes it self way too seriously at times. DMC games were fun the whole way through, DMC4 was the only one that kinda took itself seriously with the whole Nero and Kyrie thing, but then we got Dante who came in and made everything awesome again. That's the Dante people want not this generic, bland, dumb character that questions who he is.
EDIT: Don't know how maybe came out instead of made lol.

Yeah,it's pretty much liberal hipster crap in an action game. this has no place in a DMC game.

Quality of the game aside, the way that everyone, fans, Capcom, Journalist, NT has reacted to this game has contributed to the sheer divide. It maybe over reacting, but i really can't think of anyone involved with this game that didn't add to the fire. Perhaps those at NT who aren't called Tam Tam.
With Capcom. I can understand the need for different takes on a series that's needed to keep it fresh. But having the game come after DMC4, which while being disappointing, did a decent job on building up mystery around new comer Nero's origin's and fan favourite's Vergil's fate. Luring fans into these mysteries and characters only to go "nah, doing something else" isolated the fans way more than say, going MGS4's route and giving the series a proper conclusion before trying something new. Whats more, with them being more and more shady on other franchises, its just so hard to trust them anymore. Vague answers about the state of the old series isn't helping out either
I can kind of understand Tam Tams want to be seen as a serious auteur, but in terms of being a salesman trying to sell a product, he's done a poor job
As for the pros and antis, there's just been little attempt on either side. Which normally happens, but when you have journalist, who are meant to be the official voice of the industry, taking pot shots at anti's with out really any attempt to hear our out or at least tackling their their issues, while praising NT to no end only adds fuel to the fire/
Was the reaction from the antis to extreme? Yes. But then again the antis haven't been the ones trying to sell the game, unlike Capcom, NT or the journalist.
I'm going to say that the reaction to this game, whether positive of negative, is going to be as much about the context that this game came about in as much as it will be about the quality of the game itslef

There has never been a time in history when you could merely like or dislike something without someone telling you that you are wrong. Disagreement and argument over opinion has existed throughout the centuries.
Allah? Nope, it's God, die infidel!
Communism/Socialism? Hell no! Run those red bas***** out of our country!
Gun control? Piss off, you hippy!
Contrary to popular belief, opinions can be, and often are, wrong.
Having not read the entire thread, I have this to say:
It is fine for somebody to not like something based on what they've seen. They are completely valid into not buying into something. If you feel like something isn't going to turn out good then nobody has a right to force you to get it. All I ask is how well you justify yourself and if your arguments for or against it are more fact-driven or personally swayed. Or choose to not respond at all.

Skyrim is good though despite its glitches. If the glitches weren't there you would have a solid game that is well worth more than 60 dollars mind you (at least compared to other games of the same price.)
ME3 may have been a bit linear and take the ending for what you willl but the combat was fun. I still go back to its multiplayer ever now and than.
The thing about gaming is its being geared more to be a casual thing. To some this isn't bad but to those who have been gaming for 20+ years it is most certainly a bad thing. Which is why I can appreciate games like Dark Souls cuz it was made for the gamers who miss the hardcore experience.
When coincidence is so convenient, I prefer to call it fate.
What happened when people could simply like a game or dislike a game? Nowadays if you defend something you're somehow wrong, if you hate something, you're somehow wrong. Are people really so stupid these days? Pros that like this game and don't attack those who disagree, good on you. Antis who don't like the game and realize that not everyone has to feel the same, good on you. Why can't we avoid the trivial conflict?
Sir, I agree with you all the way. Now if you'll excuse me....

The internet was made specifically for you...LOL...I lied.
Every gen is full of people who get mad over every little thing. That hasn't changed. The only difference is everybody is now more aware of it as the Internet has continued to proliferate and expand.
Get your serious business out of my internet!
