Autistic Oracles
If there’s a common trend that seems to exist in stories involving autistic characters, it’s that they’re either one of two things: They’re either savants like the guy in Rain Man(who, by the way, was based on a guy who didn’t even have autism but some other mental condition) or they’re just straight-up eccentric weirdos who may or may not have criminal tendencies. The latter particularly baffles me since, well, most of the people I hang out with are more interested in scoring crits in Pokemon or otherwise venting their frustrations in a virtual universe rather than actually decking someone for pissing them off. Most people with autism don’t really have a whole lot of skills aside from, well, being weird.
I should know, since I do have Asperger’s, which is kinda like autism only with fewer down sides.
At any rate, this thought occurred to me when I was hanging out with someone who’s much lower functioning than me. This guy, roughly

If you know me, chances are you know that I hope to become an author and know a thing or two about how to write a half-decent if not great story. You'll also know that I hate DmC: Devil May Cry with a passion.

Now, unlike some fans, I feel the need to express exactly WHY I hate the new DmC so you know I'm not hating this mindlessly, even though I have not purchased nor have I played the game.

For one thing, as far as I'm concerned, if you're forced to sympathize with a character who's either a whiny fuck or a total douchebag, that's gonna make you lose serious points, regardless of the medium. For example, Bella Swan's a whiny, selfish cunt you just want to beat the shit out of because she's a cocktease who won't stand up for herself who you're FORCED to follow. I hate DINO(Dante In Name Only) because he's whiny and a complete asshole. This doesn't mean I hate the idea of the unlikeable protagonist. Believe it or not, unlikeable protagonists can work, but that's extremely difficult to pull off properly.

Also, I hate it when a story either forgets or makes a half-assed handwave to explain why they're changing something that's part of the canon. If you're gonna change something that's so fucking big, then come up with a solid reason. Claiming that DmC is an alternate universe story after you stated that it's a fucking REBOOT just sounds like frantic backpedaling in order to save your ass. What's more, the complete character derailment further pisses me off. Vergil's counterpart, who I'm either going to call 'Vergin' or VINO(Vergil In Name Only) is the exact opposite of the original Vergil. Yeah, he was an asshole, I get that, but he was an asshole with a fairly strict sense of honor. I'm pretty sure that when dealing with a human who's seven months pregnant or has a child with them, he'd leave them alone, despite possibly muttering something misanthropic. He might despise humans, but I'm pretty sure that he'd leave a mother and child alone. As for Dante, he's not whiny nor is he an asshole...most of the time. Yeah, he's cocky and mouths off to demons, but who wouldn't if you have the power of a ridiculously powerful demon and KNOW it'll take more than what they can throw at you to kill you for good? More importantly, his activities when he isn't slaying demons are IMPLIED. It's IMPLIED that he has lots of casual sex. What's more, he doesn't use vulgar curses. Note I said VULGAR. Dante does curse, but not constantly or with incredibly crude language like 'fuck,' 'cunt,' etcetera.

Finally, I have to agree with :iconrave-oh-lution: on this one: the dude who runs Ninja Theory looks a lot like DINO. Hell, he said that he made DmC to appeal to himself, much like how Meyer said she wrote the Twilight books to appeal to her own tastes. It's one thing to make something for yourself, but it's another thing to do that and expect other people to like it. It's fucking retarded. If he wanted to play out his fantasy of being a badass demon slayer, he should have written a fucking fanfic or found someone to RP with in private. Hell, I do it with my buddy :icondefenderkaotena: all the damn time!

Point is, I don't care what its redeeming qualities are, if you have a shitty protagonist, it's gonna ruin everything else about whatever you're working on. The gameplay might be solid, the story might be passable and the music alright, but a crappy protagonist is gonna destroy everything good or at least decent about your game.

I'm done, I'm gonna get ready for bed now, but not before saying this: ISN'T DEVIL MAY CRY TOO YOUNG AND TOO SUCCESSFUL TO EVEN FUCKING NEED A REBOOT?!
