Look it doesn't matter if it failed because even though it did flop, there are still some people who like both the original and the reboot.
I am mainly surprised because when DmC was released, the entire DMC fanbase became immature people who mock people who even considered owning it and they try and belittle people who do own it. Hell I got some guy stalking me once throughout this entire site trying to make fun of me and belittle me in front of other users here just because I was considering buying DmC.
This is personally why I am glad I never let peoples opinions become my deciding factor on a game otherwise my gaming library would be a 5th of what I have right now.
Just move on people. It's not that hard. You hate it and the game flopped. Yes. Just move on and get on with your lives.
