The Devil May Cry series was already hugely popular before it received a reboot this year, and i's clear to even the most casual fans that those who loved the original games had a particular fondness for the games main protagonist, Dante. When the news broke that Dante was to receive a makeover for the new game, hardcore fans were distraught, and rightly so - imagine Sonic being reinvented as a mouse. The Dante of old was seen by his fans as a trench coat wearing, white haired hero, but he was replaced by a waifish, emo-looking teenager who is a far cry from the original design. It was a case of Devil May Cry fans claiming, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" and the negative responses were immediate after the first video reveal. Though new Dante was not a popular change, was old Dante ever really that cool to begin with? I mean he's a character who delivered the line, "Flock off Feather Face" with a straight face. And that's not the only cheesy line in the series. There are plenty more lines that would be more at home in a bad Steven Seagal flick. Also, he inspired way too many gamers to go out in public wearing trench coats of their own. New Dante at least dresses for this generation but unfortunately he's still that annoying angsty teen who thinks they have great sarcastic one-liners but actually sounds like an idiot. He also drops plenty of F-Bombs, but his attempt to be a badass just comes off as insistent and a little needy. In fairness to new Dante, the game was actually pretty good and arguably one of the better in the series so is it really that big a deal that Dante is reimagined? There's always a mute button.
