2019 was a slow year of video games for me. I didn’t play a whole lot of them. What did happen though was sort of an allegiance shift. For the longest time I’ve been a Sony fanboy (since 1998) but last year they got rid of PS Vita and PS3 games on the Playstation Plus platform and then most of their free selections of PS4 games were already on PS Now. Xbox had their Game Pass, which was cheaper than the expensive PS Now (back then)
So I jumped ship and joined the Xbox family in the fall. I love Game Pass and love that they have brand new games added pretty regularly (I see you The Outer Worlds). Sadly, the Switch has been played a little less, unless it is Diablo 3 season.
Last year, I was dead determined to find an MMO game that I was going to stick with and play for a long time. My fiancé is one of the biggest Destiny fans out there and I’ve dabbled a little with that game, and Destiny often comes to mind whenever I think of ‘forever games.’ I love the constant updates the game receives and the new missions and activities with each new season released. I wanted to discover (keyword discover) a game like that.
It wasn’t easy though. The whole process was trial and error.

Remember last time when I talked about Devil May Cry 2, I stated that “Maybe I’ll enjoy the rest of the game.” Well that feeling has come and gone and we are quickly moving on to Devil May Cry 3. I don’t normally skip games but I’ve reached a certain point in my life where I should experience things that are fun and move on past things that are not.
Whenever I first started the series, I did some research and all of the lists had this game as the weak point in the series. Some fans also consider this game no longer canon, they just skip straight to Devil May Cry 4. I don’t judge a book by its’ cover, I often try to find beauty in the less liked video games. Hell, I really enjoyed Final Fantasy 2 and it’s one of the least favorite entries in the Final Fantasy games. But this wasn’t it.

Last year (that’s weird to say) Capcom graced us with 2 video games, Resident Evil 2 (the remake) and Devil May Cry 5. I’ve always wanted to get into the Devil May Cry series because I loved the 2013 remake, but anytime I would start the 1st game, life would happen and I would lose interest.
I discovered that the Xbox Game Pass has Devil May Cry 5 and that kinda pushed me to playing the series in its entirety. Plus I bought the games a couple of months ago on PS4 from a big summer sale. So I’m prepared for this hack ’n’ slash binge.
We start this journey with Devil May Cry 1. The plot of the game is pretty simple, we have Dante (the son of Sparda and his human mother Eva) and Trish, who visits his office because she knows that he hunts demons, etc. She tells him of the demon Mundus (who killed Dante’s family) and he’s coming back. So they make their trip to this castle, where the majority of the game takes place.
