So, the new DMC – Devil May Cry game recently released, and though it has some pretty good reviews, backlash from the old, “entitled” fans of the franchise (pre-reboot) have gathered together to make a petition for a ban of the game. The target? Mr. President Obama himself of course! A bit of a childish move, of course, and pretty much unprecedented to my knowledge.
And what is this petition for? Not the violence, mind you, just the mere existence of a rebooted game franchise with a new protagonist. Silly gamers. You can read the letter below:
Dear Mr. Obama: As a consumer to the Video Game Industry there is one Video Game that has caused a lot of controversy over the past few month’s.
The name of the game is DmC: Devil May Cry made by Ninja Theory and Capcom. A majority of gamer’s are aggravated that this game has changed so much from it’s past predecessors and the game actually insults the consumers in-game.
We, as consumers did not want nor need this reboot and we believe it violates our rights to have a choice between the original’s or the reboot. This game is violating our rights as a consumer and we believe it should be pulled off shelves from game stores due to it’s insulting nature and the fact that it violates our rights.
Please Mr. Obama, look into your heart and make the decision that will please us Gamers.
