The Daily Hotness: Which Dante is best?

So Spencer Hayes and co. took to the streets of San Francisco to find out which Dante is best, DmC or Devil May Cry. The resulting footage is hilarious. Blood spurt is clearly the character of 2013. Though, my vote goes forever to Alighieri, but apparently he's not in the running.

angsty vs badass

But this comparison is bad. Many people (aka non-gamers) were saying the new one because of the blood spatter and the sword (like if old Dante didn't have a sword too). WTF is this? lol

If these people only knew.

Plus, they went and used probably the worst picture of Dante they could have used, but found probably the best picture of Donte.

Do this again with Uncle Dante from DMC4, and you know for sure the results would different. OR, do one with Vergil from DMC3 and Vorgil from DmC.

These guys really are the worst bunch I have ever seen along with fellas from Kotaku. But I guess I shouldn't have expected much from a website that kept Jim Sterling and Anthony Burch as writers and editors for years...

Dante >>> Donte
Vergil >>> honorless Vergil
Trish >>> Kat
Lady >>> Kat
Lucia = Kat

LMAO! "I don't know who that b*tch is." High Five bud.

I prefer new Dante :x There's something insanely cheesy about a guy that strikes an old school disco pose and yells out 'This party's gonna rock!' That isn't to say one is 'better' than the other, just that I don't find the DMC 1,2,3,4 as attractive or aesthetically pleasing as DmC Dante.

Nyxus1361d ago

Old Dante wasn't supposed to be taken seriously, and that was what's fun about him.

Reverent1361d ago

Exactly! The fact that Capcom are actually trying to make DmC Dante an actual serious character is partially what makes him so unappealing. (I say partially because there are many other reasons to dislike him.)

Pozzle1361d ago

If there's one thing I hate about this generation of movies and games, it's how gloomy, gritty and serious many of them are. Anything that's fun or cheesy is seen as lame. What's wrong with silliness or cheesiness? Is our generation so screwed up that we refuse to like characters who are designed to make us laugh? :(

pr0t0typeknuckles1361d ago

old dante, personality wise he was great i get tired of overtly serious gritty,dark,psychopathic characters,thats why dante was such a badass,and he could be very elegant even while diising you unlike "Dante", you know it astounds me as to how people hate the 2008 prince but love the new dante, 2008 prince was funny, and badass at the same time, he never had to resort to swearing like a douche or over acting to make himself seem cool,unlike "Dante".

zerocrossing1361d ago

So they like new Dante better? I don't want to live on this planet anymore...

Whitefox7891361d ago

I have a feeling this dispute won't end until the day I die.

I mean comeon there's still websites around arguing about SNES vs. Genesis (Megadrive).

While I greatly disapprove of taking an idea or concept and altering it nearly making the original property almost unrecognizable and mainly just alienating fans to begin with (What is the point?). Capcom has made their choice.

Also your missing a picture of Farnsworth in your comment.

zerocrossing1361d ago (Edited 1361d ago )

Yeah, I know the feeling.

Well if this is really the way pretty much all devs are going to start adapting, appealing to the lowest common denominator in hopes of maximising profits and out right alienating the original fanbase, then...

RyuX191361d ago

Well look at them. They are bunch emo/hipster kids who barely even play video games. At least a few people knew who the real badass was.

Pozzle1361d ago

Also, the guy did choose a pretty awful picture of old Dante. DmC3 Dante isn't Dante's best look. I wonder if the results would have been different if a picture of DMC1 or DMC4 Dante was used. Or if they used the beat-up, jail-cell picture of new Dante.
