Picture: US President Barack Obama after reading a petition to take DmC off shelves. NOTE: May not have happened

DmC: Devil May Cry has caused a lot of angst among gamers, either because diehard fans detest the redesign of the series' iconic protagonist Dante, or because those welcoming the changes are sick of all of the hate directed at the game and its developer, Ninja Theory.

But no angst has quite reached the heights of one gamer from Franklin in the US, who has gone to the extent of petitioning US President Obama to remove the game from store 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 petition reads.

"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."

Yes, that just happened.

While the petition has only thus far attracted 31 signatures, it truly is one initiative deserving of attention.

Because it's so ridiculously silly.

Check it out here.

Lol! This new Dante is awesome! I loved the old one but the story needed a reboot and I think Ninja Theory did a good job from what I've seen. Looking forward to playing it.
My opinions would probably offend him and he'll want to petition you guys to ban me :P
