PC games that got high praise that you just didn't like

Dragon Age: Origins- Was excited to get this after all of the acclaim it was getting, and was thoroughly disappointed. It felt like a game that belonged on the PS2. Menus and systems were awkward, combat was lame, and the graphics were really awful considering the era.

STALKER- Like Sean, I really have tried to get into the STALKER games. I just can't do it. I don't know why either, because first person open world RPGs are one of my favorite game types.

Far Cry 2- Funny one because some sites gave it awful reviews, but it received a ton of glowing reviews from lots of places. Probably the single most annoying and frustrating gaming experience I've ever had. FC2 was a joke.

For those of you saying Half Life, you must either be young or didnt play it until recently. When HL1 was released it was INCREDIBLE for its time.

I would say the same for the stalker part, I tried getting into Shadow of Chernobyl many times and always gave up, but when I tried Call of Pripyat, it all changed for me...it's so much easier to get your foot in the door with that part of the series

World of Warcraft was definitely one for me, I just couldn't get back into kill 20 spiders for 8 spiders legs.

Another was Diablo 3, I spent many a hour playing Diablo 2, but couldn't get into Diablo 3.

Just like you can't get into STALKER (my favorite FPS of this generation), you've got people that can't get in Half Life. No need to elaborate excuses, it's mearly a matter of preferance.

Hitman Absolution,for me it wasn't classic Hitman and was dumbed down somewhat.

#105 Posted by Postal_Guy (2643 posts) -

Mass effect series - The only one I could finish was the first one, the other 2 I played for a bit and then got bored very quickly, so generic stuff

Guild Wars 2 - Played it for about 2 hours and had no idea wtf was going on (I dont play alot of mmo's), crafting was **** and it was more running around trying to figure out how to get to the viewpoints then anything else

Borderlands - One of the most boring games i've ever played

Maybe dumbed down in some ways and very linear, but it was much harder than Blood Money on the higher difficulties.

Dishonored. I found the game really boring, and the characters have no life in them.

me too

Skyrim, just meh.. The VA is lazy and was dumbed down to accommodate the console community. Far Cry 3, as soon as i clicked new game i hated it. Closed after 20 mins or so. Boarderlands 1, it was just disappointing. I just played it because my friend wanted to and i got on a steam sale. Diablo 3. Well lets face it, it was a big let down. i Loved the start of act 1 up untill the Skeleton King. Then it just went down hill. Act 2 sucked. Act 3 was ok and then lead to disappointment. Act 4 ¬_¬ which ended on an inevitable cliffhanger for an exspansion. Daiblo 2 ftw. Battlefield 3. Ye, it's a fun game for a while. But battlelog ruins it. Having to close a game everytime you want to change server is frustrating and boring. No voice chat ¬_¬ i don't know why. I thought that BC 2 was a better game tbh. Hitman Absolution... This was a series killer, it silently murdered and put an end to Hitman games for me.... Terrible. Crysis 1 and 2...... These are just benchmarks that are playable. How a company that comes up with a great game like Far Cry suddenly turns to make a boring game like Crysis is beyond me. GTA IV. Series is stale, VA is unbelievable. Dragon Age 2... :,( Why Bioware........ Why !?!?! Dragon age: Origins was soooooo awesome and you stabbed it and bled it dry for some quick cash.

Taking your back from out of cover crouched behind something where no one can see you, but some how can see you make the game not only frustrating; but also annoying. Also the whole campaign just felt boring, it's just not what Hitman is about. They tried to add some crappy story to it. But it just didn't work. Like Birdie and the main target Blake Dexter...... Just pi**ed me off ******* SPOILER ********* Like on the Hotel mission where you have to kill Blake. You get to him, but instead you get a cinematic of you foolishly attempting to strangle Sanchez (Blakes body guard) who has like 5x the body mass of 47. Why it went into a cinematic to create a rubbish story i will never know.

Having friends IRL who played WoW made that game for me. It made all the grinding bearable, as we were all extremely competitive with one another and character progression. On topic: I played through Bioshock and enjoyed the story but thought that the gameplay was lackluster. Hitman Absolution also sucked total balls.

I feel exactly the same way. I will never preorder another Hitman game thanks to the PoS that was Absolution. Terrible, terrible addition to the series.

Far Cry 3. I just really couln't get into it that much. After I had unlocked most of the upgrades through hunting and purchased all the guns that I wanted I got really bored. Not to mention the skill tree was absolutely horrid, both in the way talents became available to use and the talents themselves. Everything outside of the actual gameplay felt very shallow, and while it's not a bad game by any means I was pretty disappointed. Though I will say the guns felt great to shoot and the atmosphere was superb.

Yeah, I really picked Far Cry 3 over other games. I could make a huge list of games that got a lot of praise that I didn't like, but Far Cry 3 is the one that comes to mind because it was released recently, got a lot a praise and I didn't really care for it. I guess I'm just a loon.

The Half Life series. And before people say I'm too young or something, I have played and enjoyed old games like Deus Ex, System Shockk 2, Baldurs Gate 2 etc yet I just don't see anything special about Half Life. Its like a FPS with worse elements than CoD (no aiming) mixed with frustratingly boring first person puzzles.
#116 Posted by mrbojangles25 (32127 posts) -

Starcraft

Dont get me wrong, its a good game, in my opinion. I love the storyline and the gameplay is solid. But it just doesn't seem like anything special.

I come from the time though where RTSs were all about epic singleplayer, though, and I have had difficulty transitioning to the multiplayer aspect, so this must be why I don't see all the hype surrounding it.

I've bought every single Starcraft and enjoyed them all, but I just do not understand how they are so internationally popular when, from a gameplay standpoint, theyre so basic.

Your reasons were better than most. I for one prefer to read well thought out posts than a simple list of games with commentary like "it sucked" or "was boring."

agreed 100%. They ruined the stealth aspect of hiding in plain sight, relying more on yourfeeling of stealth and security, and replaced it with a gimmicky cover system and lame stealth indicators.

Hitman: Blood Money (and prior installments) were pretty much perfect in every way, and they ruined Absolution by changing too much stuff for the worse. It's not even dumbed down imo, just changed in horrible ways.

And the story was just "meh", at least the arms dealer guy. 47's targets are scumbags, I get that, but this was borderline cartoonish.

And WTF were they thinking with that DLC lol, dressing up as different video game characters, etc? Blargh

Just about every sci-fi under the sun is reflected in ME. I'm a huge fan of ME lore, don't get me wrong, but I can see a lot of stuff in it, like BSG. I'm glad they actually went for a more 'realistic' approach compared to many sci-fi games though, like not having energy weapons for troops, much of the galaxy is desolate and colony life is harsh, etc.

In order for a game to be generic it has to be the same as other games. To my knowledge there is no other games like the Mass Effect series. Yeah, it has common Sci-Fi elements, if ti didn't it wouldn't be sci-fi, but there really isn't anything generic about it.

Popular PC games that people can spew their hate at???? I'm surprise it hasn't passed 10 pages yet.

I usually like most of the popular games or at least find them to be ok but, of course I have my hate list other wise I wouldn't have posted.

Anyway here is my list:

1. Half-Life 2 and everything after it (didn't play the first one) - Bad story with terrible gun play and extremely boring and frustrating car and jet ski controls.

2. Dark Souls - Game play put me to sleep. It's hard but, I don't see where people says it takes skill. It's mostly just figuring out a pattern and holding the block button for 95% of the game. I don't find that fun or challenging.

3. Witcher 1 - Some of the worst game play ever with the click click fighting. (Witcher 2 was an awesome game though)

4.Baldur's Gate II - Boring and annoying characters in your party just ruin the game.

5. Morrowind - Game play is terrible and this is coming from someone that doesn't mind the turn based combat in old games from the late 80s/early 90s. Main quest was nothing special. People just seem to like it because it was long.

I would have to agree with the person that said borderlands..I sure was bored walking throug the land in that game.....I just couldn't get into it like it did nothing for me.

There's Advent Rising a game that unlike ME, wasn't that popular, but anyway, I can see how he might consider it generic in terms of story, action, and sci fi elements, there are a lot of games that play like it and a lot of movies that tell things like ME, as do most games, but we wouldn't be here if we wouldn't find games fun even with such flaws.
#128 Posted by Yams1980 (909 posts) -

I'd have to go with games like Diablo 1-3, and Torchlight and all those dungeon crawling things, they all get praised but are not fun to play through for me.

Have to agree a bit with the Witcher... its worth playing through for the interesting dialog outcomes you can choose with your character but the gameplay is plain awful.

I like Skyrim but I have to nod in agreement with the person saying the jumping felt floaty

Some of you are mentioning older games, but these games aren't really good anymore, they age badly..... few can withstand the passing of time.

Well to play dota you need to know how the mechanics work. You can't just jump into the game not knowing what you are doing or you'll end up dead.

Oblivion / Skyrim. Hollow, hollow games to me. The writing the quests I've done, the characters, the combat. All just, bad. I can see why people love it though, but wow there's not much to the games, to me.

The Witcher 2. I played it for an hour and it didn't do anything for me. I might try it again at some point.

HyperWarlock
It's a slow, slow game, takes a while to get rolling - had the same problem. When it hits its strides it's very impressive - which surprised me.

Starcraft is special, in that as a competitive RTS it's phenomenally made mechanically speaking, and because of this it has fostered the biggest competitive community, internationally, SK etc. for any game to date. I say that not caring much for Starcraft in general, from 98' till now, and really disliking some of Blizzard's choices here and there. And not being big on multiplayer RTS. Good games though.

[QUOTE="JigglyWiggly_"]

half life 1 wasn't that special

JigglyWiggly_

Did you play it before 2000?

no
but irrelevant
i judge all my games based on how good they are today
unsurprisingly i rate almost all the early 3d games as bad, unless they have very good art style (e.g not grungy textures but pure colors) and simple game mechanics that are fun regardless of age.


e.g I liked quake 1 a lot more than half life 1 because it's really simple. (Inb4 I only like quake)

i played q1 a lot later than playing half life too

Thing is, you would probably have a greater appreciation for the original Half-Life if you played it for the first time prior to 2000.

It single-handedly redirected the entire FPS. On release, it was generally acknowledged as the best PC game ever made. I think the reason some FPS play better to some people these days is because single-player FPS games (mostly, just as Counterstrike did for multi-player) since Half-Life have incorporated the elements introduced in Half-Life as commonplace, so one who plays it now does not appreciate the groundbreaking Half-Life (or Valve) did.

ZombieKiller7

I actually liked the Xen levels as well. The 2nd to last level IMO was the most challenging in the game. I liked the idea the Gordon had the balls to actually take the fight to the alien homeworld.

As for Crysis, I liked it, but I thought it was overrated. I liked the original Far Cry better.

- Fallout 3 (Did not feel like a Fallout game at all, could only beat it once. Then New Vegas came out, beat it 8 times)

- Assassins Creed series (I do like a few of the entrys in this series but overall I find it overrated)

- WOW - I have all the expansion packs, have given it multi tries, its just not for me. I understand why peopel enjoy it, but its just not for me.

- DOTA2/LOL - I have liked some of the games in this genre, but not really these two.

- Torchlight 2

- Dragon Age 2 (I know this forum most didnt like it, but in real life I know alot of people that liked this more then the first. Also Dragon Age 2 did get good review scores to. Game sucked compared to Origins imo).

- Oblivion (After loving Arena, Daggerfall and Morrowind, I was not very impressed with Oblivion at all)

Alright now for my serious answer, Dota 2. I don't know that this got high praise from everywhere, and I have played the game a few times, but was never able to get into it, most likely because I'm a League of Legends player.
