Just let that headline sink in for a second. When the founders of the United States created the constitution, one has to assume that they had the reboot of the Devil May Cry franchise in mind. Why else would an entire government be constructed if not to pull games from store shelves based on the ire of select fans?
Okay, honestly? I love this story. I woke up to it, and I love it so, so much. A group of gamers has created a petition on The White House's official site specifically to rid the United States of DmC Devil May Cry.
But, it's not what you think. They don't want it removed for violence, gore or religious themes. No, they want it removed because they "did not want nor need this reboot" and they "believe it violates our rights to have a choice between the original's or the reboot." [sic]
Here's the full petition. Enjoy it in all its grammatical glory.
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.
This is democracy in action, right? This is it.
The petition sits at 67 signatures at the time of drafting this post. Only 99,933 to go. We can do this, America.
