Devil May Cry was released last week on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which was met with mixed emotions from long-time fans, but ultimately has been praised by reviewers and is sitting at 86 on Metacritic as of this writing.
Even though critics agree it’s a good game, fans of the series still cannot come to terms with the reboot, and have made it their right as Americans to complain about it to the U.S. government. In one of the weirdest petitions I’ve ever seen, a rather small group of gamers have come together to speak out against Ninja Theory’s reboot of Devil May Cry.
The petition reads:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Get Ninja Theory’s DmC: Devil May Cry pulled off the shelves.
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.
Yes – this is the actual petition that was available on The White House’s petition page, which obviously has been pulled from the site. Before it was pulled, it had 67 signatures which, judging by the amount of signatures and amazing grammatical errors, we believe this was created by some tweens who enjoyed their Devil May Cry experience to include a Dante with white, long hair rather than the short black hair the current Dante sports.
