If we've learnt anything in the past few years, it's that gamers feel like they're an entitled bunch. Often their expectations are met with some form of reason, but in more recent times we've definitely seen a loud voice for the strange emerge in the developer request department.

The whole hubbub surrounding the Mass Effect 3 ending, for example, split a community down the middle and had punters questioning creative freedom and player entitlement in massive, time-wasting conversations, but it was the more recent DmC: Devil May Cry petition addressed to US President Barack Obama that took the cake. So we've taken it upon ourselves to uncover the 10 strangest videogame petitions of all time.

That's mostly due to a lack of signatures. Cevat Yerli said in an interview the petition for a TimeSplitters HD collection would need about 300k signatures for it to be viable, and the petition currently has just under 75k signatures.

I will always think the ME3 ending was terrible and leaves me with out hope for the next Mass Effect game series. I also do not like cell shaded Zelda games. I must be absurd and have mental health issues.

The most delusional thing about these sorts of things is that often the people making the argument are convinced they speak for the majority when in reality they maybe speak for a fraction of a percent of the userbase. See it on the WoW forums all the time too, people getting angry at Blizzard and demanding some feature be changed because "Everybody hates it and nobody wants it to be like that!"

The most crazy thing i read on blizzard forums this week was a guy saying that blizzard ruined sc2 by making your first 6 probes mine at the beginning of a HotS game.

Because that's where the line is. Exactly there. That the first 1 second decides who is, and isn't noob.

but have gamers earnt the right to demand what they want out of a developer's vision because they've invested in that vision?
Gamers are the ones playing the games, I don't think they should so much demand certain features but more give the devs an idea of what they want in a game, rather than devs just giving us the same old s*** like with the modern warfare series and this bulls*** about just being able to shut off certain features remotely without any warning. In the end though, the devs are making the game so if you don't like the "features" they put in or how the story progresses, then don't buy it.
