...never associated with Ninja Theory in the first place and DmC never existed, what would've happened. Would many of yall still play it.

For me, I would rent it since I know how Capcom is. How about you guys?

I would rent it because I was pretty disappointed with DMC4 and felt that Capcom just didn't care anymore. I bought DmC after doing my own research on it and because I liked the changes so far (DmC kept it from getting stale in my opinion). If I rented a DMC 5 and liked it then I would by it.

It depends on the direction it took, how certain mechanics worked, and how I as a fan felt it fit into the series.
If it didn't please me, I'd pitifully still buy it.
I just couldn't stand to see the story continue in the direction Devil May Cry 4 was taking it.

I'm sure the combat would be outstanding, I'm just not sure how the story would fare.

I would play it at a friends house. If I liked it I would buy it and play both DmC and DMC5. Though overall I'd probably spend more time on DMC5 due to the combat system.

It depends. I for one loved DMC4 (it's actually my favorite game of the whole series), but before buying it, I built up a judgment by watching gameplay videos, reading commentaries and reviews from many different sources and just then decided to buy it. I'd have done just the same with DMC5 (just like I did with DmC, only that with DmC we had the advantage of trying out a demo) and if I decided I wanted it then I'd surely have bought it. I was never expecting DMC4's story to be any improvement from past games so if DMC5's story would have been on the same level quality that'd have been just fine for me.

I could see the story for DMC5 predictable.

If it only catered to the fans that think being "CUHRAZY" makes a good character, I'd pirate it.

If it had 20 fully fleshed out missions with a story that actually made sense, I would buy both DmC and DMC5.

If Capcom didn't rush it like they did 4 then yes I would, but it would have been used. Capcom has lost my trust and my money, they would have to do 10 things to earn my wallet back.

Disappointment comes from expectation (well, most of the time). I wouldn't be expecting anything impressive in DMC5's story, so long as I can have a blast killing demons like I did on past games, I'd be more happy to go with Dante on another of his outlandish missions.

That said, I'd agree with most people here that, being aware of how Capcom is handling things right now, the overall game would have been a huge disappointment.

Assuming, though, that the game looked good and all, then I return to what I said earlier.

The more I think about it, Devil May Cry 5 was a huge missed opportunity.

Think about it.
Giving Dante a definitive personality, allowing the story to progress naturally and to let the characters develop without to much force, but also combine that with functional and highly complex, yet rewarding, gameplay.

I would first rent it. Seeing how DMC4 wasn't all that great. I'll test it out before spending $60 bucks on it or wait till it drops in prices. Why bother buying a game when it's just going to be all right?

I would be happy and on that same day a surprise trailer for Mega man Legends 3 is show straight after.
Capcom's glorious return.

Tameem will grumble "that's not cool" audience will laugh and say in unison "oh Tameem!!" And a sitcom edge and me starring Tameem is born, pilot episode screenings will commence the next day.

All this happens because of Devil may cry 5 being announced.

If Itsuno directed it then yes I'd buy it day 1. He really made DMC combat the way we love it today..

It wouldn't be a buy but more so of playing a friends copy because I've lost all faith in Capcom a long time ago. They were at a total creative dead end with Devil May Cry 4 and I honestly can't give Capcom enough credit to create anything new or interesting and would probably be a rehash of the sh!t they think worked so much in 3. Dante would probably still be as shallow as ever with other characters that are all cardboard cut outs of the same type of generic anime characters we've seen 1000 times already. Also with another gothic castle somehow because Devil May Cry can only seem to make the same world all the time that never was anything special. I can just see DMC 5 being just more of the same.

I don't mind if the previous series returns one day but they NEED to adapt the kind of advances that DmC brought to the table because DmC did surpass the original in aspects and is definitely the most unique and original title out of the bunch. I'm in love with the aesthetics of the level design and overall world DmC takes place in. It shares a distinct identity that makes Devil May Cry look like it has started to adapt an identity all its own instead of literally being just a mix bag of so many other existing things. I will go as far as saying just the art direction of DmC is the most interesting and original design I've seen in a video game in a long time.Journey being the only other title in recent memory to impress me in that department.

I didn't know making up a fun hypothetical scenario was report worthy.

"REPORTED :p" yeah you do

Nah, it's more like trolling. You wanted this community to go into the cesspool. The thing that you call a "fun hypothetical scenario" was /v/ level. Ugh.
