DmC seems to be one of the few games in recent memory where the term "vocal minority" has never been so fallible. Almost any corner of the internet that DMC players are, hate and hysteria follow. Looks at websites where people can submit there own scores such as Metacritic, , Amazon, etc..almost every score is mediocre or worse. The easy answer seems to be "trolls, haters, miscreants", but really?

Do you pros acknowledge that DmC wasn't a worthy successor to DMC series?It lacks the staying power. It is neither as fun, or as replayable. That isn't merely me saying that either, look at the supposed "figures". 700,000 or so copies sold, few people still play. Games been out for not even a year. DmC may not have had as many sales, and the community was laughing at this mediocre product.Why is this the case? Why do us antis choose other games? Why are there less videos popping? Why does almost every piece of news seem to have a negative connotation? Why?

Antis are a vocal minority.

The silent majority is all those 4,300,000 entitled gamers who didn't by the game.
Besides I or anyone else was flamming anyone.

You seem to throw that "entitled" word loosely. Are we suppose to buy a game that we don't want? That's a definition of "sheep" if you ask me.

I think he was just making fun of people who say people are entitled for not buying a game.

"Vocal minority" and "entitled gamer" are both among the buzzwords used by the press to guilt people into buying garbage games. That's all there is to it, really, they lost their original meaning a long time ago.

Pretty much this, if Ninja Theory put 1/5 of the effort into bashing and trolling the old fans into their marketing this game might have sold decently, to bad they didn't. Then again I'm probably expecting to much from NT.

Yeah and all of us together doesn't amount to the grands sum of all those that have lived and died before us, so I guess we're all in the minority. Does anyone else see how stupid that is?
Gamers have lost their pride.
