Unpopular opinion I kno, but I kinda liked the guy. Been a fan of DMC ever since the 1st and its probably my second favorite franchise of all time after MGS, and I still prefer the old Dante as I grew up with him but I didnt thought at any moment the new one was a "emo whiny little bitch" like many says... I still thought he was badass in its own way (a punk/grunge kinda way). Not once ever do I remember of him behaving like some sort of emo or whinning in the game (contrary to "fill your dark soul with LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!" Dante). Yes he had some cheesy lines and sweared a lot but I still had some giggles from some clever lines he said. One could argue its opinions but I believe most of the hate towards him comes from the negative propaganda against this game ever since the beggining.
anyway, whats your thoughts on this matter? why did/didnt you like him? And please try to be non-bias in your response (somethin I now it wont happen in some replies)
