Hello everyone,,,

I recently finished DmC (the one released in 2013) and i enjoyed it. I also played devil may cry 3 when i was a lot younger, and never understood any dialog presented in it because of my English. I would like to revisit my childhood and play it all over again, but in great detail. I want the full experience.

My question is: If I only played dmc3 and dmc (2013), where should i begin? I noticed that there is an HD collection on steam with good reviews, and everyone is talking about how good the port is. I don't mind the fixed camera and the graphics, im all about the story and the gameplay. But is it worth the time? I have no idea where the timeline stops and how consistent it is, since the 2013 dmc had a totally different Dante and it was a remake. I'm assuming that u are all die hard fans and u can guide me :D
by the way, I have dmc 4 special edition that i can play using my buddy's steam account, is it the same as the normal dmc4? I don't want any extra stuff to the story, unless its skins and stuff. then its okay :D
I have never posted to a forum before.. getting some anxiety lol

The chronological order is 3, 1, 4, 2.

Get DmC Definitive Edition if you can.

Well, chronology isn't the only way to go. Story isn't the most important thing in DMC but to a lot of people it does matter. Still, you can always go by way of release and see how the series' history went; experience it the way people did, with all the ups and downs.

If you're merely interested in the story then YouTube the cutscenes of DMC3 SE, DMC1, DMC4 SE, DMC2, and finally DmC Devil May Cry DE in that order. However if you want to play the games, pick up the HD DMC Collection (Xbox 360 version or PS4/Xbox One version. They are the same so it doesn't matter which you get) and play DMC1 through 3. Then play DMC4 SE and finally DmC Devil May Cry DE.

DMC1 is archaic, but simple, fun, and memorable. DMC2 is easy and boring, bit with great concepts. DMC3 SE is what defines "Devil May Cry" nowadays, although it's way of changing styles is cheap in my opinion. DMC4 SE is hella fun and easy to play, fun to master. (It's my favorite entry personally) DmC Devil May Cry DE is a fun way to past the time and has "rewarding" combo strings.

Also DMC the Anime exists for poops and giggles.
