Why do people honestly believe DMC1 is the best in the series?

Well my serious reply here would be because I played DMC2 first and thought it was very awesome---best game I'd played on PS2 since FFX.

Then I played DMC1, and I thought the labels were mistaken---how could the first game be SOOO much better than its sequel?

Aaaaand if this really was an April Fools joke topic, you really got me XD

But if not, I can see why you'd say some points (everybody), but imo it's the most balanced of the original 4. 3 just made the enemies become tanks as the difficulty rose.

I've seen this post far too many times in this board, and by different people, but they're just stating that which is OBJECTIVELY wrong.

DMC1 is by far, the worst one of the old DMC games, and considering the quality of them, THAT is a real achievement.
Clunky and sluggish gameplay coupled with the most uninspired RE ripoff atmosphere that serves no purpose other than DURR SWORDFIGHTON IN DA DARK LIKE IN MY SOOOOOOOOUL(and on the subject of souls: LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEGHT, seriously, how can you even accept this kind of voice acting?) and almost non-existant, forgettable music, alongside trial and error gameplay FILLED TO THE BRIM with artificial difficulty(Changing the enemy placement in harder mode? Lazy way to go, Crapcom) make it nearky downright unplayable, how can you even fathom more than 90 minutes of playing it is beyond me.

And let's not even start with the story...actually, yeah, let's start it:
MY PARENTS ARE DEAD
I'LL GO TO AN ISLAND TO KILL THE DEVIL BECAUSE YOU LOOK LIKE MY MOM
LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT
DEVILS NEVER CRY

DMC1 is one of the reasons why video games will never be looked as a form of art, thanks to its cancerous essence that was reworked in many other games.

But I get it, it's cool to hate DmC because god forbid a franchise is rebooted on this decade, and because Dante doesn't have that precious red coat unless you buy it for DLC, but you're about to stop your bloodflow with your nostalgia goggles towards DMC1, accept it, so we can all move on from all this self-entitlement in gaming and look forward to DmC2.


I agree with what you're saying except for one thing. DMC 1 is the worst? You obviously have not played DMC2.

I am pretty sure its an April Fools post but if it isn't than it should be. DMC1 was and still is amazing. My favorite in the series with 3 close behind. Although objectively looking at things 3 is prolly better than 1.

Objectively, yes, the later DMC games are much improved over DMC1 from a technical perspective. However, for what it is, DMC1 is a fantastic game and well-designed in all of its aspects. The art direction, the sound design, the philosophy in the gameplay--it's all wonderful.

It has a heart that feels much more immediate and poignant than the others, too. A lot of inspiration and passion in that game.

Doesn't matter. Look at the date, it will explain all. Today, everyone and no one is a troll. No exceptions.
