Either you go all the way and make it something that'll attract casual, with many unlocks and replay value, or you do something more focused on the hardcore crowd.

DmC stood in the middle, alienating some of the old fanbase, trying to bring in a new one and then trying to bring back those who went away.

The Pokemon anime is a good comparison. Sinnoh was a step above Hoenn and Ash actually knew what he was doing, while Dawn was a rookie and had her hands held.

Unova just tried to do Squirtle/Charizard/Cyndaquil again for the veterans to draw paralels and make Ash act like a rookie to please new fans.

And it sucks.

you see, the problem is not because the game is easy, but it's more about not giving the user the alternative to play higher difficulties (the other difficulties aren't even that hard and doesn't require a lot of patience like previous DMCs) when they want the challenge. you need to satisfy both sides, not just one side or simply put, downgrading all difficulty levels to satisfy the casual group. My biggest problem is people like you who is looking for reassurance. All you have to say you like the game and be done with it, so don't try to prove something like you are right about it.

if you don't play this game, you ARE part of the f***ing problem.

I didn't even realize that there were "professional" DMC players until I came to this board. What a joke lol. How sad is it to be a "professional" at a single player game series that hardly anyone cares about. Go play League of Legends, Starcraft, Street Fighter, CoD, Battlefield, Halo, etc. if you want people to actually care about how good you are at a video game...and actually win money doing so.

Don't get me wrong, I love challenge. I love that (most) DMC and Ninja Gaiden games have difficulty modes that offer an awesome challenge. But that's not why I play these games lol. I play them to have fun, and a game doesn't have to be challenging to be fun.

This.


There is a challenge for pros. It might not be as much a one as you're used to, but it's there. If the game manages to kill a pro even once, it's challenging. You want an actually easy game, go play Zelda Windwaker or Fable or something. And even more so, your average gamer would probably find this game rather difficult and would die a couple dozen times instead of just a few like for pros.

I understand what you're saying, but I wasn't trying to talk about DmC's qualities or lack of them in this post. I'm looking at it in a strict business point of view. Don't you think it was the right move by the Capcom share holders, I mean, it's always a bet trying to sell products to people, but if I had to bet, I'd say it was the right move.

If it will pay off, we'll only know in a few weeks / months.

I also think it's weird that some people see themselves as professional players of these single player games in youtube. But who am I to say they're wasting their time? I wrote a full text about how I think DmC was the right business call in a Gamefaqs message board.
