Original Devil May Cry released in 2001 was one of the best games of the last decade. It was meant to be Resident Evil 4, but it made Resident Evil look like a SLOW ZOMBIE. Knowing it won’t fit in the resident evil franchise developers gave it its own plot, story & hence a new franchise was born and born with it the whole new genre of action games. There were 3 more games released in that series and it inspired a lot of new games like God Of War, etc. It’s a benchmark for 3D action games even now. Well to be honest I haven’t completed the first the original Devil May Cry ( I was hoping Capcom would release the HD collection on PC also, but sadly they didn’t yet ) but I have played the 3rd and 4th game in the original series and they were unlike anything I had ever played.
