Fans May Cry: A Discussion on ‘Entitlement’

Gamers are no stranger to buzzwords – from pre-release marketing to on-the-box catchphrases, we see it everywhere. But did you think you’d start seeing buzzwords on discussion forums or in website comments? I’m not talking about viral marketing, either. Far from it, gamers themselves are now employing them to get arguments across quickly and more easily than ever before. It’s like a new weapon in the arsenal of conversation and debate to these people – and if there’s one debate that’s heavily ignited the wider gaming community in recent months, it’s the new Devil May Cry reboot, titled ‘DmC (Culture, DmC: Devil May Cry)

In DmC's case it was never about "entitlement" it was about respecting the core fans and the source material, respect was shown towards none as such the game sold poorly.

DmC was passable entertaining at best which didn't help the matter, since the franchise is niche the reboot was intended to widen the audience so the potential for many newcomers to the rebooted franchise was there, the problem is not enough people actually cared beyond blind vocal support for a small seemingly victimised dev team over the Internet and aren't NT great at playing the "victim".

The sad thing is I could have gotten into a DMC reboot if it was done well too... but no, the case of DmC in particular is less about entitlement and more about not respecting your fanbase.
