Disgruntled gamers petition President Obama to have DmC Devil May Cry pulled from shelves

DmC Devil May Cry

By on January 23, 2013 at 9:08 am

Angry about the reboot of Devil May Cry into DmC Devil May Cry? Well, you’re not alone: around 40 people have signed an online petition urging President Obama to pull the game from shelves.

I’m still not 100% sure the whole thing isn’t a joke, but get this: the petition actually claims that the game “violates our rights.”

“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,” opens the petition. “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,” it continues. “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.” So it’s violating our rights. Got it.

“Please Mr. Obama, look into your heart and make the decision that will please us Gamers.”

Meanwhile in the real world, we reviewed DmC Devil May Cry and thought it was pretty good.

what a bunch of fucking whingers. dont like it? dont buy it. i also thought it was pretty good, its my favourite one of the series (i have it on xbox).

what rights do people have to specify how a game gets made?


This sums up how I feel about those disgruntled American’s:


Erm.. Did you say 40 people or 4000? because GoN will be busy wasting our time with crack-pot petitions if you report about evey 40 person petition out there for gaming….


I’m with @RSOblivion on this ,but human stupidity no longer surprises me so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was real! – just makes you wonder how humans got to the top of the heap with things like this….


“Not sure if Trolling or Just Stupid”

Definitely Stupid.

so theyre all crazy religious gun nut pirates, basically.


Doesn’t a We the People petition now need 100,000 signatures before they have to respond? I don’t think 40 so far is really going to get there before the signing period expires.


wow i don’t believe this!


a bunch of cry babies..


I know applying logic is probably a bit out of place here, but wouldn’t ~removing~ DMC violate my rights to choose between the original and a reboot?

Agree with your other examples, but what is “crazy” about this?


Haha oh wow, Murricans.


Bad as it is, 40 people isn’t enough to call “stupid Americans”. I could probably find 40 stupid Australians who support it.


A’s much a’s I hate to be That Guy, I ju’st can’t take ‘seriously anyone who trie’s to compo’se whole paragraph’s without u’sing apo’strophe’s correctly.

‘Seriou’sly guy’s, it’s not that hard.

‘So they want to ban athei’st’s, or are there con’stitution’s that already *do* ban athei’st’s? The U’SA i’s at the point where I can’t tell which i’s more likely…


‘Sothey want to ban athei’st’s, or are there con’stitution’s that already *do* ban athei’st’s? The U’SA i’s at the point where I can’t tell which i’s more likely…

They have state constitutions which ban atheists from holding public office, and they want the federal government to intervene. Not crazy at all.


oh sorry, my mistake. I thought it said they wanted to ‘ban atheist from holding public office’, not overturn a ban that was already in place. Anyways 40 people? big deal. It’s not going to gain any momentum (pulling DMC from shelves).

Can I sign this petition?


I… I… don’t even… /WHAT/? I’ve lost faith in my own country.



You people realize it’s not serious, right? It’s a joke. Joke petitions get added to that site all the time.
