Stop posting/linking all the articles and video reviews (often from 'professionals' or 'journalists') that focus on how 'entitled DMC fans are' or 'how they only hate New Dante because of the hair', etc.

These are not designed to be game reviews. They're designed to get hits so they can increase their advertising revenue by inciting anger from DMC fans. Stop posting or linking them whenever you come across one because you're playing right into their hands by propagating them.

Capcom tries to appeal to the CoD gamer with RE6.
CoD gamer buys the new CoD instead.

Indeed. I've seen a number of times where a site gives a lower-then-expected score to a highly hyped game only because it causes a fanboy meltdown and draws far more views then if it was just another high score in the pile. Number of hits is a big deal, and sometimes sites do enjoy riling people up to get even more hits. Those articles being there to get lots of hits from antis... Is actually a possibility.

Destructoid is the prime example. It pretty much always go against the general sentiment.

Yeah, TC, journalists are looking for traffic and both devs and journalists make good use of the controversy for marketing.
