The Best Games Period - Episode 59 - Devil May Cry

Jack Gardner



Hideki Kamiya's Devil May Cry released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2 and arguably changed the course of action games for years to come. In a very loose adaptation of Dante's Inferno, Devil May Cry stars a white-haired, pistol and sword-wielding demon slayer named Dante who embarks on a quest to stop a demonic invasion of Earth. The fluid combat mechanics and cheesy story captivated audiences.


Have the years been kind to the game that was once intended to be Resident Evil 4? Is Devil May Cry one of the best games period?


Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.

I'd rather take the original Devil May Cry Dante over the edgelord reboot Dante from DmC: Devil May Cry. This dude sounds a lot like Tameem when he said Dante was cool back then but he's "not cool" now. Also the original game's soundtrack not being good? I beg to differ & surely would not want to hear the awful dub step from the reboot.

My best friend and I must be the only ones who liked Constantine. We watched it multiple times... It filled our dark souls with LIIHIIGHT!


To be fair, you really dig deep and find the good in movies others tend to discard. That's part of what I love about your writing, haha!
