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.
