You see, I own all the DMC games, and the first I think is the only one I beat. I played 2 and 3 for maybe 5 minutes but they just didn't grab me. Haven't even touched 4. I didn't even much care for this game but I tried the demo and was just blown away by how much it has improved; there's nary a trace of the suckage that plagued its predecessors. The aforementioned suckage of the previous titles was not of the magnitude that would keep me away from the games forever but now I worry that having been exposed to what i imagine for DmC games is the ideal form that all other DmC games aspire to be; every scrap of raw potential realized, the very embodiment of perfection; it will only magnify the defects one-thousand fold and they will be all I see when I finally force myself to labor and toil my way through the snooze-fest that is DMC 2,3, and a presumed 4. I was wondering if anyone could confirm or assuage my fears. Thanks. Also, I realize that if I am to look at it honestly, if not for this game the older DMCs would continue to be ignored and I would have been kept away forever. So if they are good, I'm even more thankful for this game. And I'm also thankful for you, reader. You're a winner. I "shot" you with a finger-gun while winking and clicking my mouth after you read that. You're welcome.
