It seems gamers can't just stop at being annoyed. They always have to cross that line separating disappointed fans and the unfortunate realm of the spoiled brat jackass.
We all know that many long-time Devil May Cry fans are none too happy with Ninja Theory's recent reboot. Those fans have been quite vocal and despite widespread critical acclaim, the game remains embroiled in controversy.
And you know, if you don't like it, fine. You have a right to be disappointed and even a little upset. That is indeed your right. Just don't go give the game a 3 on Metacritic because you're bitter and incapable of being objective and above all else, don't petition the freakin' White House with the following (as spotted by Gameranx ):
"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."
It's times like these that make me realize I could never be a politician. My response to such childish drivel wouldn't be very diplomatic. In fact, I think it would be summed up in one sentence- "Sorry, I'm trying to run a country right now so please, do us all a favor and go in search of a life ."
