I don't see how any of us accepting that the series could die now is any more selfish than you wanting the series to continue on even though you know the majority of the fanbase does not like this iteration of the series. As has been pointed out, most of us don't want DMC to die, but we don't want to see it continue on like this either. By wanting Capcom to keep on making DmC games, you are just as selfish as us.
