Come on pros, enough mental gymnastics, just admit it. There's a few bad things I like but I have the ability to at least admit that they're bad objectively

It's called blind fanboyism. They just can't admit that DmC deserves a 6/10 at the absolute best of times.

DmC isn't one of those cult titles or like B movies with the statement 'it's so bad it's good'. It's just an average 5/10 game, nothing more, other worst games probably has more 'flavors' than DmC.

The same reason why people can't admit they are wrong.
But its okay I like some bad games too. I LOVED Nier Replicant (Yes Replicant, I got it when I lived in Japan) and even though it's probably my favorite PS3 game a lot of people said it sucked.
The older rpg games will always be the best forever and ever.

Because people think liking a game is the same as thinking it's objectively awesome. Like Drakengard. I love that game, it's dark, twisted, it's borderline offensive and any humour derived from eating babies is basically jet black. It's also got shoddy gameplay and controlling a massive dragon in combat is like turning a truck in real life, sloooooooow and painful. It's repetitive and the environments are generally crappy and lifeless.

See what I did there? I acknowledged it's not an awesome game. At best I'd give it a sloppy 7/10 and more objectively a 6/10. And that's okay. You don't need to rate a game a minimum 8/10 to like it or think it's awesome. But you have to consider the flaws that you might be willing to ignore to a degree but objectively bring it down.

I'll admit DMC2 was a bad game (for DMC standards, as a normal game I think it's average) and I liked it, I'm willing to admit that much.
I came here to chew bubblegum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum.

There is no right and wrong; over generalized concepts for manipulation and self righteous people. Nier wasn't a bad game, it had little quality issue with controls , graphics and simple combat, otherwise its a top notch, beautiful RPG.

They are attempting to justify their purchase. This is the only logical explanation. There is absolutely no way these people could survive with such deluded mindsets.
