Would you rather: New or old DMC series
I have played all of the DMC games and i love them all, but honnestly im not sure if i would perfer developers (if i had a choice on the matter) to continue to work on the old Dante and his pals we all know and love, or to bring out more of this new and interesting Dante for us to see... What do you guys think?

i like old and new too.
i know i hate the old DMC fixed camera. its not a problem when fighting but during certain puzzle sequences it can be pain.
I like the old castlevania goth setting. but i loved the reboot surreal setting.
i liked the old Dante's sense of humor and attitude and look much better.
but i like the new DMC combat mechanics better.

Can't we merge the best attributes of both old and new into DMC6?
Why would I want developers to expand on a game (DmC) that spit of the series and it's fans?

I do agree i was disapointed with the new DmC since im an origional Devil May Cry fan... but in honesty if you look at it its meant to be an alternate universe to the orrigional story line.. the Zelda series did the same thing with 3 alternate universes in theirs, i will say i like the orrigional series more and i want them to keep up with the story line... but i will admit the new DmC was pretty good all in its own storyline, i think its more of a re-amp for people who never played the game before... Like i said they both have their pros and cons and i enjoy them both
i appreciate old devil may cry for it's difficulty right out of the bag. it is much more challenging than dmc. it isn't fair to compare them for who's better though...they both have the same titles and characters, but they're made by different companies. original was eastern and dmc is western made - apples and oranges. dmc basically took dante and nero - fused them together, revamped dante's origin to angel/demon instead of human/demon, color-locked some enemies, and pumped an extra dose of testosterone into everything and every character. that isn't to say it's not devil may cry, it clearly is, look at the title...however, it's not past devil may cry, and that's where fanboys are getting upset. i would've much rather them continued the already well-established lore that capcom so graciously provided for's ninja theory, and they're restarting a series which isn't easy to do. i enjoy both sides of the series for what they both are separately.

I'm more of a classic dmc-fan and have only played the reboot a little. The more serious and grittier world of DmC has potential, though the whole "political criticism" feels forced and is there to make the game seem deeper than it really is. If they make a sequel they could:
-Make their own versions of the dmc-characters that really didn't have that much of a backstory(Arius,Argosax)
-Make the secret missions more like the ones in dmc 1, 4 and 4. The ones in the reboot remind me of the 2nd games missions.
-Give him a a devil trigger that actually turns him into a devilish looking state and doens't give you too much power(demon evade+devil trigger=op as hell)

Ive only ever played the reboot and the first Devil May Cry. I prefer the reboot, but DMC4 caught my interest recently. When I make a dent in my backlog I'll give it a try.

This is perhaps the most tame discussion I have EVER seen regarding the new version versus the old. Really, +1 for you guys.

Tbh, I haven't played anything but 1, but I do own both 3 and 4 and will definitely play 2. However, based on what I knw, I found the new iteration to be absolutely fantastic. The story was entertaining, finding a balance between simple and interesting plot devices. The characters were believable (which I feel, in my opinion, was a plus versus the old games) Don't get me wrong, Dante was over-the-top in the old games, which, was entirely his thing and badass, but I found myself more engaged with the development of Dante in this game and the brother dynamic that slowly stirred and changed over time with Vergil. Mundus left a little to be desired, kind of acting like a 90's Saturday morning cartoon villain who worked behind the scenes, talking smack, and sending lackeys to do the work. I get that he was the leader of the organization and therefore, probably prefers to never get his hands dirty. However, I feel that he should've somehow been more involved in the story and had at least a more intimidating presence, antagonizing Dante throughout Limbo.

All in all, a delightful time filled with plenty of fast, fun, and frantic demon killing.

I'm with the new one as I never played 1-3, and just can't get into 4, locked camera is killing me.

New Dante obviously. It's like Shakespeare in motion. When I first played the newest game I thought I was watching Hamlet on stage. It was that amazing.
i don't think shakespeare ever wrote any of his characters that said ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥, ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥," or had a succubus for any of his characters.

Yet fans are the only ones displeased with the game, as the new game is more than worthy.
