DmC: Devil May Cry “fans” are a crying shame

Dante’s had a dye job and legions of devoted fans have sworn off his triumphant return to the forefront of action gaming. Brenna Hillier slow claps. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yeah I really hate that DMC fans opinions are tossed to the side as "whiners"

Fans become whiners when they CONTINOUSLY comment on articles just to complain even though they're armed with the knowledge that their complaints won't accomplish anything but making them look obsessive.

If you tell me that you dislike/are not interested in a game, then I can respect that wholeheartedly. But if you repeatedly troll articles just to repeat your initial opinion..thats when you become a whiner/troll/fanboy/console warrior etc.
LordMe  +   1122d ago
I do repeat my concerns. And most of the reviews have everyone saying "suck it haterz lolololololol" And "Get over the hair" ever the "journalists" are doing the same thing.

Yes, I post and state my concerns, it is a decent game, but subpar for DMC which didn't need to reboot.

I do not consider myself a whiner (who would I guess lol) but more of a fan who just gets told by reviewers and such to get over the hair, when we have given out concerns in depth about the gameplay being not as deep. And the following day, we get told "Nope, get over the hair"

And everyone did the same thing to ME3's ending, RE6 STILL has that happen, and DA2. They for months got cussed out, the games got trashed by it's fanbase. But the DMC fans (And I'll admit there are some non constructive ones, but thats the same for any fanbase.) have been given the middle finger every time we say something.

Now we get to sit back and watch as DMC slowly turns into something that does not even resemble the franchise, and would have made for a much better new I.P.

I's not like were making crap up

Out of all games that get hated on by the franchises fans we actually have solid legit complaints for this game and have done so since we started to see more footage. It's not like were pulling it out of thin air.

It's a step back for the franchise and despite all the complaints and things they've dumbed down/made accessible it still gets good reviews. It's like these reviews have never played a DMC game before or forgot what it was all about.

Despite all the legit complaints people just go on about the hair...they know and have read the other complaints but they decide to ignore them because they can't face the fact that were right. I mean what are they going to say "Oh yeah...well 30 fps is better then 60fps anyway"


"But if you repeatedly troll articles just to repeat your initial opinion..thats when you become a whiner/troll/fanboy/console warrior etc."

So let me get this straight...

Someone who LIKES the game can go on every related article and say something like "Oh I can't wait for this", "I love the look of this game" or "This game looks incredible"


Someone who DISLIKES the game can't do the same on every article because they are considered a troll, whiner, hater the HELL is that fair

If were going by your logic then I can just say that the ones who like the game in every article are Whiteknights or suck ups...that wouldn't be nice would it.

It's a bloody commenting site, let people have their opinions. If someone keeps going onto someone's comment and keeps trying to undermine them or bash their comment then there being immature. If A doesn't do it to B then A shouldn't get it done to them. Most times it ends up in a personal attack because they use the whiner, hater, cry-baby card

I feel like people have forgotten the meaning of the word trolling.

"Oh yeah...well 30 fps is better then 60fps anyway"

Then play it on the PC, problem solved. Why is it that fans of Gran Turimso allowed more flexibility towards Gran Tursimo 5 when it didn't run at a solid 60fps? Previous games did but GT5 at times ran even below 30fps. You know why they forgot or forgave them? Because it was a darn good game anyways and the game didn't suffer from not having a steady 60fps.

Is going from 60 to 30 a valid complaint? Of course it is but if the game is still fun it's still fun. You're making it sound unplayable and broken. You have other valid complaints too but at the end of the day you're still missing one key ingredient, you don't own the intellectual property. You are merely a potential customer. That is where your contract ends, you no longer have a say in the final product because it is now here. So what's happening now is the more it gets positive reviews the less ammo you have. You would have loved it to get poor reviews so you can bask in your glory and say 'see, told you so'. Instead most people buy games for the enjoyment, not reliving the past and thinking they should have all the input because they were previous customers.

Things change all the time, generations grow up and new gamers come into the mix. So they reboot things like James Bond and give it a darker edge. Or they make movies based on old classics like The Bad News Bears and put a different spin on it hoping to attract new watchers. The old timers think what's the point and that the new one is crap. Sometimes it's hard to think outside of the box but even reviewers get recycled and the younger generation comes in with a new perspective.

I don't think you're giving the new game a chance because you're still stuck in that box.

YES, because they are INTERESTED in the game..thus giving them a reason to be in every article due to their excitement for it. If your NOT interested in the game, they you don't have a reason to be in every article.

That's not true. When the game first came out the framerate was between 45 to 60, however through patches the games performance has been improved. GT5 does run at 60fps now. It never ran at below 30fps like you claim. I've had the game since launch day.

And personally I don't think that 30fps makes a game unplayable. However if the franchise was built with a 60fps standard and then changes to 30fps, it WILL change the entire feel of the game and its responsiveness. It has a negative impact.
DragonKnight  +   1121d ago
It's a good thing you didn't read the article because it had to have been written when DmC was first announced. The author insults gamers as a whole and those with legitimate complaints against DmC specifically, consistently bashes the Devil May Cry franchise, and comes quite close to mirroring what Ninja Theory said about how DmC will be Shakespearean (yeah, because big business vs. anonymous is so Elizabethan). In short, she doesn't address any of the legitimate concerns and this entire article is a big "suck it fanboys" style article.

And then you see what she wrote about the Tomb Raider reboot...
cpayne93  +   1121d ago
@LOGICWINS but it isn't that they just don't care about the game. If you, as a consumer, don't like a product, you have every right to voice your opinion. Obviously you can go too far with the complaining, but someone who doesn't like the changes in DMC can complain about it if they want to, as long as its done maturely... which is rare unfortunately.

I don't even have an opinion, I haven't played dmc yet. Plan to get the hd collection.
N4GDgAPc  +   1121d ago

I'm going to say the samething to u again and again. U keep coming in saying why we get harassed by saying your opinion.

I can't think of once have u came in and said just your opinion why you hate it. Its comments like this

"It's a step back for the franchise and despite all the complaints and things they've dumbed down/made accessible it still gets good reviews. It's like these reviews have never played a DMC game before or forgot what it was all about."

You went to say your opinion then go on how our opinions are wrong. You make it sound like no one actually likes the game. how can it get good reviews because there is no DMC fan that would like this game.

Guess what I played them all and still love this game. I think there is some asspects of the game that have been improved on and somethings I wish they still had in previous games. Maybe your not tring to come out like that but how you write it comes across like there facts and disregarding our opinions. Its like u think we actually don't like the game at all. Were blinded by reviews to make us think we like the game. When deep down we hate it which is not true.

Most of us here don't care if you come in and say why u don't like the game. But when you add comments like our opinions are wrong because we don't know what we like thats the people who get commented on all the time.

Its funny having LOGICWINS as a name, when your logic fails. This is an open comment section to anyone. When ppl over the top praise this game to coax the other side, its no different. Yes, it has happened plenty of times here. Both sides have immature trolls, including these flamebait articles.

Im no big DMC fan, but I've played them all. I've played the demo, and watched the ending, plus other leaked footage, and got the story from a friend on Gfaqs. All in all, I think DmC should have been a new IP. The characters dont resemble, act, or interact the way they did in the old DMC. There backstorys come from a different place as well. The art style is different. The ENTIRE lore of DMC is different now. It seems to me NT is banking on the name to entice sales, but when you tell the fans to F off, thats pretty stupid. Putting all that in to account, if ppl cant see the legitimacy in the complaints, they're blind.

Factually, NT separating from the original fanbase WILL hurt them. Look at the sales of Enslaved and DMC4. DMC was a niche franchise to begin with. DMC3 sold the most with like 3mil. DMC4 was multiplat and sold less. DMC wasnt ever a big seller. DmC has an uphill battle to fight. Sadly, the game isnt the reason I wouldnt buy DmC, but NT's whole immaturity about it. Ppl doubted MGRR, at least Platinum stayed classy.

N4GDGDAPC is correct. Iv'e said it before, all you guys do is make inflammatory statements like they are factual and belittle any positive comment's and then when someone counter argue's, You throw up your "opinion shield" Like you somehow can just say what you like but when challenged we're taking your rights away and we dont know shit.

You lot are borderline pathetic, you have never liked this game since the first trailer where guess what.. ALL YOU GUYS EVER MOANED ABOUT WAS HIS APPEARANCE. Just because you decided to move on and progressively moan about every other single aspect of this game, doesn't mean you can just pretend that stuff about his appearance wasn't said in the past.

You were never going to say the demo was good in any way even before you played it. You were never going to accept any positive review's so what is the point in talking in a forum when all you are doing is dictating?

Besides that fact, you guys are getting tiresome and sorry to say your comments are nothing more than off topic, trolling and spam. You assumed you were the majority when that was never the case, people just cant be bothered with you no more and now the comments sections look like devil may crybabies anonymous, with you all trying to convince eachother about the conspiracy against you.

You have failed in your crusade, you are now the brass band playing their instruments as the Titanic sinks slowly in to the ocean. The game is good and you got what you deserved, maybe try and not review a game from a debut trailer next time and maybe people might give a shit.
AdmiralSnake  +   1121d ago
You guys rebuke the same comments over and over AGAIN.

EVERYONE gets tired of ranting. Nobody has a problem with the fans opinions, the problem is you guys never shut up about it.

The fact that most went on metacritic just to troll the user score says a lot. This goes beyond being a fan. People are psychologically obsessed, bad ENOUGH, most went on their twitter threatening to kill their families over a video game, now this.

There's no excuse over this. Nobody needs to insult gamers, you guys have displayed that on your own how disgusting of a community this can be. Granted 1-3 articles is fine, but every review score, you guys moan, every DMC article.

Then when people call you whiners. You want to get offended, the wtf do you call that then ? Let me continue to whine and see if the does anything, people blame NT, when capcom the publisher approved of the reboot, the CREATOR HIMSELF of DMC, defended NT and the game, and you guys still insist on carrying on.

It's to the point, nobody even cares about you guys opinions anymore, maybe if people were humble and stated their concern, but trolling/flaming/ the excessive whining is ridiculous now.

Face it, DMC fans opinions are absolutely redundant, it's been rebuked many times over, we've heard it all. Hell, the demo, fine you guys had the right to say w.e you wanted, the full retail game that almost none of them played ? Silly

Theyre just missing out on a great game ultimately. It's a reboot, treat it like a new game. Same characters different universe...i dont care HOW different the story is as long as it's entertaining. I already know the combat is awesome.

PorkChop, I own the game as well. It does not run at a steady 60fps. The point is DMC is very playable at 30fps because it is a steady 30fps.

Only fans this gen that I considered WHINERS with BARELY any merit...

Mass Effect 3 'Fans' (By all means, the ending did suck, but the game entirely on its own was one of the best action and story-driven shooters I've played, great characters, great music, great emotionally-gripping missions) I do NOT think the ME3 thing was justified entirely though, there was too much whining about the ending in which fans would just pathetically go to Metacritic to make shit-reviews and would exaggerate the game quality as if the entire game sucked because of the ending, least it made off with funny memes because of it. HIS NAME WAS MARAUDER SHIELDS!

Sonic fans will always have a retarded whining-issue around here.

Dragon Age 2 for this example? Was with Merit since EA rushed the game poorly and thought it'd not matter the slightest, they were proven Quite wrong by the backlash.

Annnnnnnnnd I can't think of anything else right now beyond Capcom and their On-disc bullshit and DRM.

smashman98  +   1121d ago
Except the game is just as deep as ever every ones major other major concern is the fps being at a steady 30 or combos being easier to pull off. 30 fps I can see why some would care I'm personally fine with it. But the easier combos shouldn't be getting slammed its not like they've streamlined it so much that all u have to do is pick up and play . No rather they cleaned up an aging system to simply uncomplicate things.

But I don't care I laugh every time I hear about how bad the dmc demo is or how its a great game but a bad dmc game. Truly its funny we all tend to forget about dmc 2 and dmc 4 which were just bad games. And how dmc 1 and 3 had hilariously cheesy dialogue at times.

Then of course I make comments like these and people simply say to me that I'm not a fan of the dmc series but now I get to say to them "i own every game in the series plus the anime" I think I'm a big enough fan

Personally, I don't have a problem with Dante's new look.

What I DO have a problem with is that I've seen streams of this game and it looks like it's been written and designed by an angsty 13 year old who listens to screamo.

Dante acts like he's about to lock himself in his room and listen to Slipknot any second. He's everything but badass

If you play the game his attitude is alot similar to original dante. One is carefree living life and the other is carefree don't care about life but by the end he cares alot more than original dante. He actually does it because he wants to find awnsers where the original would do it because it sounds fun.

and I'm talking about between DMC and DMC3 where there close to the same age. I think he is younger in DMC still though.

So by the end he is less arrogant than the original and shows that he cares for others where original is still just living life^^

They made a reboot because the game was losing appeal to everyone but its original hardcore audience

The point of the reboot is change. Its surprising to see that all these people are surprised that a reboot of a franchise is not following the exact same formula the franchise has been using.

Look at the Tomb Raider reboot. You don't see Lara double jumping everywhere and killing wolves with her bare hands. Both games have started over and went in a different direction in order to revitalize the franchise. So far, DmC has been critically acclaimed so NT seemed to have done a good job of creating their version of Devil May Cry

it lost so much appeal that look at all the people complaining. Metacritic user score destroyed, videos on Youtube with more dislikes than likes, NT having to damage control if the game was a reboot or an alternate time-line... DMC4 sold almost 4 millions BTW.

What, 4 million? Where did you get that figure from? According to the mostly accurate Vgchartz it hasn't even sold 3 million across the 360 + PS3 + PC. It was a huge commercial failure compared to its predecessor DMC3 which sold around 4 million including the special edition and that's why it was decided to be rebooted. You think the new DMC can do much worse than DMC4 because some 'fans' of the series are trolling it on the internet? Nope.

Anyway why bring sales up? The only thing that should matter to gamers is whether the game is of great quality or not, DmC has received a lot of acclaim and so you 'DMC' fans should at least give it a chance.

There is an argument to be made that, when judged alongside the rest of the series,DmCis a badDevil May Crygame. The suggestion may be debatable, but there's a potential case to be made.

The problem with DMC is that its a good game but with a bad character design.

Personally i like the new look of Dante but i just can't relate to his character he's like DMC meets Jersey Shore.

Yeah, but it pretty much cements and puts a lock that the old style of the game we loved so much is now gone forever never to continue with a lot of questions left unanswered in favor of a new style that wasn't warranted in the first place.

And replaying the older titles isn't necessarily an answer I mean let me tell you MGS3 is one of my favorite games of all time and is definitely the top Metal Gear game I've ever played but by the 17th time I've played the game it gets a little old.
Godmars290  +   1121d ago
What's your point exactly? Only your first question makes any sense.

By the example of this game its unlikely that hardcore fans will see a continuance of of the original story much less familiar gameplay. Nothing which honestly or directly builds upon it anyway. That's what complaining fans are complaining about.
Whitefox789  +   1121d ago
Spot on.

Let me pose a question to everyone in the comments feel free to spam my PM box btw I'll gladly respond to everyone.

What does this re imaging bring to the table that hasn't been done with the previous games?

If they really wanted to bring the next step forward in the series they should have the amount of styles in DMC3 and allow you the players to map them to the d-pad where the user can switch up to 4 styles on the fly like in DMC4.

I recommend reading this article on why DmC is a bad game , it goes over everything but i'll quote the ending statement.

"We don't hate this game just because the hair color isn't the same. We hate the game because the gameplay is completely uprooted while characters and story are completely awful, with nothing else to look forward to. It seems that the developers have ripped everything we enjoyed about the series out of the game in favor of their own opinion of what is 'cool'".

This was written months ago and the author as specific as he was didn't seem to mention wether or not he played the demo. Instead he said he watched gameplay and trailers. Quite a bit of the info had his subjective opinion attached to it while and more than a few times he would state his opinion as it were fact. One example relatively early on was where he stated that all of the dialogue up until that point was said in a serious tone and nothing was tounge in cheek or sarcastic which even with just the examples he gave wasn't true

I don't even like this game, but the whiners are much worse then the game. HEY! UMMMMMM IT'S JUST A GAME AND NOT YOUR WIFE OR YOUR DADDY. Critics like it, does that mean I'm going to buy it ? Noooooooo, but Ninja Theory deserves props.

The presentation, level design, cinematography and music is good. You may not like it, but you guys are whiny so who cares.
celestiatem  +   1121d ago
No, the game doesn't accomplish what was set out to be done. The music is contrived and a terrible choice overall, the level layouts are boring and uninspired, the combat is weaker than any previous iteration of the series AND the mechanics are weak and shaky.

The only thing NT has managed to accomplish with this game is the dismantling of a series that need not have been dismantled. I don't blame NT solely for this, since Capcom came to them in the first place. But both are equally stupid in this decision and direction choice. Bad choices and bad ideas should be reprimanded by the fans and community, which I can only hope will be done.
WitWolfy  +   1121d ago
dude no offense, but you sound like a whiny bitch.. STFU. If you dont like the game dont play it and go back to the original lore of the game then.

My God ITS JUST A FUCKING GAME!!! A REBOOT OF A FUCKING GAME!!!AND A DECENT ONE TOO! Whats the bet if Platinum games did this everybody would've been happy..
Root  +   1121d ago
Like I said above, us who don't like the game can make alright mature comments...those who do like the game just like to bash other peoples comments and being so bloody immature about it

Perfect Examples

Seriously though. If people stopped complaining about games what would game journalists write about? They fuel the fires and then they try to make the fire feel bad for existing.
celestiatem  +   1121d ago
Who knows, maybe they'd actually do their job. Giving a proper and full review on what was done well and poorly, with good reasoning behind both. But then again, that's probably not what would happen anyway.

Everybody complains about everything, video games aren't the only thing.

People have been complaining about bands in music for years if the lead singer or drummer changes then the old fans of the band will say this band now sucks conversely this change will attract a new group of fans who disprove of what the old fans of the band have to say thinking that the new direction is awesome.

In short, there is no answer....

I got my copy for the PS3,I'm at the beginning & there are a little technical flaws but the gameplay & the design of the levels are AMAZING!!!NT didn't get it a 100% with the tech for the PS3 but so far this game is amazing!Some of the backgrounds in the level designs remind me of something Tim Burton would have done.

@DragonKnight...I'm going to say this game is amazing as many times as you troll every DmC article with your redundant,lame,worthless rethoric & horrible theories about how bad this game supposedly is & every other worthless thing you've said.Isn't about time you find some other articles to try to trash,it's obvious you're not able to accept change...GET OVER IT & MOVE ON!....I could say other nasty things but I will keep it simple & to myself.

It looks and sounds like a good game to me, at the very least. I have no idea why people are so against change in general.

I couldn't care less about the hair color. In fact, after the uninspiring DMC4, I feel like I'm gonna OD on white hair. So the color change is rather welcome. Same goes for the hairstyle - granted, I wasn't too thrilled when it looked like Rihanna's hair, but it looks much better now.

The only things I'm concerned about is whether they're going with a complete DMC-universe change(origin, allies, villains, powers,etc.) or not, and if Dante's character is still the entertaining Dante of old or if he's now a "stick up his a**" serious guy.
Hicken  +   1120d ago
The first half of your comment is pretty much the same as everyone else's: fans don't mind the revised look THAT much. Sure, we didn't see anything wrong with the original and would have preferred it, but changing Dante himself isn't really the problem.

It's everything else. 60FPS versus 30FPS matters in a game like this. Fair enough if you're gonna reboot the franchise, but that doesn't usually come with a COMPLETE re-imagining of the entire universe. No matter who draws the comics or directs the movies, Batman is STILL Bruce Wayne, who became a masked vigilante after witnessing the murder of his parents. He doesn't have super powers. He uses non-lethal force, and so on.

People aren't against change, per se. Rather, they're against EVERYTHING that made them like the franchise changing.

And let's face it, people: it's NOT a DMC. Solid game? Sure. But NOTHING that makes a DMC is there.
MeatAbstract  +   1121d ago
I never quite understood the arguments for this whole Devil May Cry clusterfudge ordeal that's been happening since they unveiled the game.

Dante isn't an in-depth character nor are the people around him. They're action games in which you play a guy in a long coat with a sword and guns that kills hordes of demons. By the end of God of War 3 Kratos was now a hateful, rage filled killing machine with no depth and who complained? No one because they knew what the game was, so why not with DmC?

Also DmC needed to be changed. 4 was disappointing. The series track record was 2 good games, one poor and one 'ok'. And the two good were great because of their action and style, not in depth story and character arcs. We're hardly playing the game version of There Will Be Blood are we?

I know I'll get some arguments back saying the story was great, the characters are believable or whatever but I'd have to disagree. I played the DMC games solely to kick ass, rack up high scores and attempt the Dante Must Die modes. I never played because Dante was a such a fascinating character because he isn't - he's a one dimensional, one liner-spewing character designed to appeal to people that just want to wield a big sword and kill demons.

So yes DMC fans, I think you are completely over reacting. If Hideo kojima came out and said "I'm going to make Snake a skinny pale ginger kid" then yes, I'd expect outrage. But DMC? Dante? A different look which doesn't matter because you're still the same one dimensional character that kills things with swords and guns?

Why not, I say. I played the demo and thought it was pretty fun, didn't see the big deal.
Tontus  +   1120d ago
You clearly massively misunderstand Kratos and your comparison to the rebooted Dante is without merit.

With Kratos there's a story arch from the very beginning, he's starts of as just a captain of the Spartan army and after being tricked into murdering his wife and daughter and made to have their ashes stuck on his being, forced to kill his mother, losing his brother again after finally freeing him, being manipulated for 10 years and being betrayed by the God and the Titans you can see his hatred grow more and more throughout the series, God of War III is obviously the peak of the rage and it makes sense to anyone who's played the other games that now we know everything Kratos has been through it was time he enacts revenge on everyone who's wronged him.

Kratos has a lot of depth we learn through each of the games, towards the end of God of War III we see Kratos care for Pandora in an attempt to make up for failing his daughter and ease that guilt, in his psyche we see envisioned all the quilt that plagues his mind and how with the help of Pandora he finds the power to forgive himself of his past actions, finally in the end he sacrificed himself and gave the power of hope back to mankind so that they could rebuild and one day thrive without the aid of corrupt, manipulating and tyrannical Gods.

How can you compare that with Dante in any of his games? Kratos is one of the best characters in gaming and Dante was always just a shallow white haired flamboyant guy who you controlled to 'kick ass', the new DmC at least tried to make him a better character.
MeatAbstract  +   1120d ago
I just skipped most of your post because I know the whole story of the God of War games. I've played them many times.

God of War 3 felt odd to me. Don't get me wrong, I played the crap out of it and got my platinum for it and over those many play throughs, it just felt strange story wise. I can't put my finger on it but things just felt out of place to me.

But the hack 'n slash as a whole, I rarely play for the story. However, I do remember waiting on God of War 3 with excitement because I did want to see it pick up where 2 left off but overall by the end, I wasn't emotionally invested as I was by the end of God of War all those years ago. Maybe its a sign of getting older, I dunno. Point is, Hack 'n slash to me is just that - you kill stuff wildly and very rarely do I find a story that blows my balls off.
PS4isKing_82  +   1121d ago
Devil may cry did not need a reboot.
It's an action hack and slash series. Same as ninja gaiden, god of war, bayonetta.
These types of games don't really need reboots as they're enjoyable already.

A better example would be a game like resident evil. Now that is series in desperate need of a reboot.
Tontus  +   1120d ago
Capcom saw that the series' popularity and critical reception was in decline thus deemed a reboot necessary. Although I don't see why they couldn't have just made DMC5 and made it great rather than risk angering their fans with a reboot, also I understand that by rebooting the series it gives a new mass of games an entry point to the series so I can see why they did it.

The new DmC has received high praise so at least past fans have something to hopefully enjoy once they stop being bitter and buy it whilst new gamers have a perfect opportunity to experience what is a good or great hack 'n slash game.

gamer or fan boys to be precise should judge a game with integrity.. Honesty... Rating a good game poor just because things changes or hair color got black and all is not fair...

Resident evil 6 was average but not very very bad... same goes to cod games recently. and as for the new DMC it was really great, quite different from previous games but a great game. and for those who are saying that Ninja Theory should have released this game with a different name then cammon, same angry fan boys would have said that it is a rip off of the Devil may cry series and all.

Appreciate it for what it is.. don't judge it for what it isnt...

"You’ve lost it, “gamers”. I’m ashamed to be sharing an arbitrary demographic grouping with such raving imbeciles. Go outside. Get some fresh air. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Grow the fuck up. And try DmC: Devil May Cry, because it’s a good video game. Remember how you used to like those?"

I'm glad someone said it.

I'm not even a big DMC fan, but this can be said of a lot of fanbases.

This is what happens when you have a good game developed by a group of devs headed by an a-hole. ( Tameem Antoniades)

You STILL don't want to play it... because of the a-hole.
violents  +   1120d ago
Your seriously going to justify death threats and other hazings are how any community should conduct themselves when in a disagreement over anything? Wheather or not what you disagree with isn't in question here. It's the horrific methods in which people go about expressing thier grievences with any game be it DMC or ME3 or whatever. Its rediculous to act that way over a game. No one would accept these actions in any other situation and it shouldnt be an exception in the faceless hide behind a computer screen and bully people world we have here either.
Enigma_2099  +   1120d ago

I'm explaining why some of us... like myself, STILL don't want to play it. Where the hell you went with that counter argument is anybody's guess. Who said anything about justifying death threats? And why the hell would anyone try to justify those?

We're talking about something else here. Stay with me, now.
