What are some unpopular gaming opinions you have?

Some of mine:

Metroid Prime 3 is better than Metroid Prime 1 (never played 2). Granted, I haven't gotten to the fetch quest at the end yet, but I prefer its gameplay and pacing.

God of War is mind-numbingly boring. Hack and slash games need great combat to work IMO, and God of War is very lacking in this area. Light puzzle/platforming sequences don't make up for this whatsoever.

Animal Crossing sucks. Outside of constructing your crib, there is nothing remotely interesting about the game. Harvest Moon sh!ts all over it as far as life simulators go.

A Link To the Past is not even close to being the best Zelda. The dungeon design is pretty barebones compared to later games in the series.

Uncharted characters are very cookie cutter even in spite of the superb voice acting. They seem like the kind of vanilla characters that come out of a B action movie or a made for TV action movie IMO. I think the idea that they are best gaming has to offer is ridiculous.

Resident Evil 5 is not that bad. Granted, I played the whole thing in co-op so that undoubtedly improved the experience, but it was a pretty good action game IMO. Yes, RE4 sh!ts on it from a great height, but that doesn't mean it's not a decent game on its own merits.

Klonoa sucks. Bought it on Wii, got bored of its unimaginative level designs and its general tedium and returned it. Seems like it was made purely for kids.

I find MineCraft boring.
#3 Posted by bowserjr123 (1624 posts) -

I liked Star Wars Rogue Squadron 3 just as much as Rogue Squadron 2.

I don't care for first person shooters.

I've found this generation unappealing and have no interest in purchasing a PS3/360.

New Super Mario Brothers for the DS is the worst Mario platformer IMO.

I didn't care for Shadow of the Colossus.

  • Uncharted 1 is better than Uncharted 2/3.
  • Super Smash Brothers is extremely overrated.
  • IR Aiming is great in single player, hate it in multiplayer.
  • Casual games are fun too.
  • Call of Duty is good, and not liking it doesn't make you cool.
  • Resident Evil 4 is overrated.
  • Legend of Legaia is better than Final Fantasy 7 in every way.

I found MGS3 to be very boring and it's plot to be stupid.

#6 Posted by Kickinurass (3357 posts) -

Dance Central is one the best franchises this gen.

WoW sucks. Witcher 1 sucks. Morrowind sucks. So hermits don't think I'm being biased, Gears and Uncharted are a bore, and Forza/GT5 even moreso.

Portal 1/2 isn't anywhere near as funny as people make them seem.

Minecraft is the greatest gem of the generation.

#7 Posted by David719 (1823 posts) -

I like Bioshock 2 more than the original.

Uncharted is a decent series, but I think nearly as good as people say it is.

Metroid Prime 2 is very underrated; it's just as good as the original if not better

Wind Waker isn't that great

#8 Posted by ShadowsDemon (10138 posts) -
FF13 is a great game The Fallout games are as boring as hell Most RTS games are dull Crysis 2 is a fantastic game with good online LoL is the best MMO around
#9 Posted by Slashless (10097 posts) -

Alpha Protocol is better than Mass Effect and the second greatest RPG of all time.

Halo Reach>All other FPS's

GTAIV, MGS4, and SMG2 each deserved their 10/10s

GTAIV=GTASA In fun factor

Pokemon Emerald is the best pokemon (and second best handheld game)

GODsidian are the best devs out there

CoD MW2 is better than all other non Half Life/Halo FPS's

GT5>Forza 4

LA Noire= GoTY 2011

Phantrom Hourglas is the best Zelda after Wind Waker (well...equel to Majoras Mask)

Wind Waker was the last noteworthy console Zelda

Wind Waker is the sond greatest game of all time

CoD>BF

Most FPS>BF

Bioshock Infinite is way too overhyped

Watch dogs looks meh
The best Japanese styles RPG in lost Odyssey

LBP is the best Sony franchise

All Final Fantasy installments are terrible (yes even the ones I haven't played)

Indie Games>Most big budget titles.

#10 Posted by princeofshapeir (14259 posts) -
I like LA Noire a lot I hate MGS4 I think GTA IV deserved all the critical praise it received, and should have been GOTY 2008 Twilight Princess is my favorite Zelda game ever I prefer the RE4-era Resident Evils to the earlier games And I enjoyed Crysis 2 more than Crysis 1
#11 Posted by inb4uall (5806 posts) -

I like metroid pirme hunters for DS

I like Modnation Racers for PS3 and think that its devlopers immproved on the standard kart racing formula rather then copied mario kart as my fans of the later would have you believe.

I think the Vita will pull out of its slump.

I think handheld gaming is better then console gaming.

I THINK HALO SUCKS

#12 Posted by VanDammFan (4285 posts) -

I find that although I have played several pc games...that pcs are just not meant to run games with ease and correctly like a console..never a popular topic around these parts..

#13 Posted by hippiesanta (9884 posts) -
PC gaming are not for living room
#14 Posted by Twin-Blade (6795 posts) -

I love item farming in RPG games, sort of like Diablo. But where it's at its best for me is games like NIER and Endless Online (R.I.P) where there is a weapon or armour crafting system in which you have to travel the gameworld to find groups of mobs that have the chance to drop a material required for a piece of equipment your after. That feeling when you finally get that 'broken amulet' after hours of killing uncommon enemies that have only a drop rate of ~1%, which was the last thing needed to craft that amazingly powerful and cool-looking weapon.. Ahhhh, I love it.

  • Half-Life is decent, but nothing special.
  • Counter-Strike is bland.
  • Uncharted is average in the gameplay department; However I've only played the first and about an hour of the second, despite owning all three. The second did seem like a step-up though, I'll certainly be giving them another go.
  • The Last of Us looks average.
  • Need for Speed > Forza/GT every day of the week.
  • LBP is a mediocre platformer that tries to be everything but fails at most in comparison to true platformers.
  • Certain indie games are better than 90% of big game releases.
  • DoW --> SC in terms of fun (not DoW 2, I didn't play much of it and didn't really get into it)
  • Vanilla + BC WoW is the greatest game ever made.. It was more than a game.
  • Final Fantasy VIII was far better than X.

All I can think of right now.

#15 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -

IMO Perfect Dark Zero is good.

I find Gran Turismo to be an overhyped series.

I found TLOZ: Twilight Princess to be somewhat of a letdown.

I found God of War 2 to be better than God of War 1.

I find Tomb Raider Legend to be good.

I find Saints Row series to be underrated.

#16 Posted by famicommander (8524 posts) -
All of the Assassin's Creed games are terrible.
#17 Posted by senses_fail_06 (6736 posts) -

Halo>>>Metroid Prime

Majora's Mask is way overrated

The Fable series is good

iOS>>>handhelds

Uncharted 1 is the best in the series

PC gaming is overrated

Sports games>>>JRPGS

Civ V is the best game this gen

Left 4 Dead is criminally underrated

Nintendo sucks anymore, flat out terrible

#18 Posted by GeoffZak (3715 posts) -

I really liked Metal Gear Solid 2, more than 3, even though you had to play as Raiden for most of the game. The game is a masterpiece.

The Dragonball Z video games aren't bad.

Sonic 06 is an enjoyable game.

Sonic Unleashed is an excellent game.

The Tales series is the best game series of all time.

Online multiplayer is overrated.

E3 sucked this year, it was full a bad games.

3D gaming, just like motion control, is a pointless gimmick.

Batman Arkham Asylum and City are both sub-par, boring games.

Most modern shooters are the same game. (Uncharted is NO EXCEPTION)

The list goes on and on and on. I'll stop myself here.

#19 Posted by quebec946 (1348 posts) -

twilight princess was the last good zelda game

blizzard fanboys are bigots

metal gear solid is a boring cutscene feast

halo is a generic sci fi space shooter

street fighter is a mediocre fighting game with womens everyone on steroids

tekken gameplay feel like a early 90's 3d fighting game

tf2 is not a fps because it does'nt feel nor play like an fps and is pretty meh

half life 2 is generic

wow is average at best

mmorpgs are terrible

shadow of colossus was boring and very empty

cod of duty world at war is the best ww2 fps

bf2 was better than bf3 in more way than bf3 was against bf2

#20 Posted by randomguy15 (1981 posts) -

Final Fantasy XIII is great, and I did play a lot of other Final Fantasies and enjoyed them as well.

I love the Silent Hill HD collection

I think the xbox 360 has the best exclusives

The only rockstar game from this gen I've liked is L.A Noire

I liked Assassin's Creed 1

I liked Castlevania Judgement

Portal1/2 aren't great and way overrated

I don't care if a game is hardcore or casual, if it's fun to me I'll play it, its ridiculous terms anyway.

I don't nitpick and b!tch over everything game related.

RE5>RE4

#22 Posted by Shenmue_Jehuty (5207 posts) -

I have nothing but contempt for anyone who has bought a Call of Duty over the past 5-years (that's a lot of people)

Mobile/iOS gaming is f$%#ing stupid.

I like FFXIII

People who purchase DLC are a big part of the reason why the gaming industry has become so crappy

Attention, not self congragulation also I do believe some people posted honest things that is considered unpopular on here. Like my list was 100% true. Why would I or anyone else post for self congragulation? You can do that in any thread. some people might have post things on this thread for attention but for the most part you're wrong.

#26 Posted by 3Guilty_4Spark3 (132 posts) -
  • Aside from TF2, Valve is utter ass. They've made some of the most god awful offensively bad games I have ever had the displeasure of playing.
  • There hasn't been a good 2D Nintendo platformer since Yoshi's Island. NSMB franchise is the worst internally developed games Nintendo has made.
  • GTA 4 is best GTA. Red Dead Redemption is fvcking awful.
  • Halo 3, Souls games and a small few others are the only games worth owning on the HD twins.
  • Wii shjts on the HD twins.
  • There hasn't been a good TES since Daggerfall. Morrowind is the worst in the series since it lead a great RPG franchise down an awful path making even worse games.
  • I enjoy video game wank material just for the absurdity of it.
  • Metroid Prime games are shjt compared to Super Metroid.
  • Starcraft 1/2 are the only good blizzard games.
  • DMC 3 couldn't handle Ninja Gaiden black's left nut. Still a excellent game though.
  • I enjoy Suda51 games even though I admit they're pretty awful aside from SotD and Killer 7.
  • Golden Eye, Perfect Dark, and Timesplitters were awful, awful games.
  • Battlefield is shjt.
  • DS is the worst portable system Nintendo has released do far yet it's leagues ahead of any other portable system.
  • Resident Evil franchise has never been good.
  • Japan> eastern europe> canada> U.S for gaming
  • Heavy Rain is the worst "game" I have ever played. David Cage and his entire family should be put in front of a firing squad.
  • XBLA and Halo are the only reasons to own an Xbox. Demon's Souls, Infamous, Yakuza, Valkryia Chronicles are the only reason to own a PS3.
  • Wii mote is the worst controller I've had to deal with.
  • Although I primarly play PC Xbox/PS3 controller>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Mouse and Keyboard for anything that isn't FPS and obviously RTS.
  • MGS franchise is ass.
  • Super Castlevania 4>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>SotN.
  • Dead SPace is complete shjt
  • Vanquish is the best console shooter that isn't Halo.
  • DMR is the most imbalanced weapon is the Halo franchise.
  • AC1>AC2>AC:B>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Eating dung>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>AC:R

I'd say this is only a fraction of my unpopular opinions.

#27 Posted by JohnnyCageMK (4340 posts) -
Mortal Kombat is the best fighting series Halo is the best FPS series PS3s exclusives suck Battlefield sucks
#28 Posted by Arbiterisl33t69 (2542 posts) -
Everyone agrees E3 sucked this year :P Mine: Sonic is not dead yet Halo CE isn't the best Halo and it's not even that good as a standalone game Wind Waker and Majora's Mask are the best Zelda games COD CAN be fun once in a while Sports games are fun I think Fallout sucks I think most RTS except Pikmin are the most boring games ever WoW is crap. Banjo Kazooie N&B is a good game.
#29 Posted by Seabas989 (10377 posts) -

I enjoyed the The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword more then OOT and WW.

Mario Kart 64 is more enjoyable then Double Dash.

Bethesda games are boring.

Tekken is meh.

Kingdom Hearts is overrated. Kingdom Hearts 2 is terrible.

Saturn > Dreamcast.

Gamecube > Dreamcast.

Dualshock controller is outdated and uncomfortable.

#30 Posted by Krelian-co (11157 posts) -

jrpgs are vastly superior to wrpgs

#31 Posted by RandomWinner (3751 posts) -

Uncharted 3 is probably among the 3 worst games I have played this generation and Uncharted 1 and 2 are both among my top 5 favorite games of this generation.

Gears of War is absolute garbage in ever single respect besides graphics.

Assassin's Creed has gotten better with each outing.

#32 Posted by TilxWLOC (1033 posts) -

FFIII is the only good Final Fantasy game

PS4 and maybe the Xbox3 are not going to be super powerful

D-Souls are the main reason PS3 is worth anything

Casual and Core do have meanings

Wii has more than first party, and there is more to Nintendo first party than Mario, Zelda, Metroid, and Pokemon

Uncharted is definitely not action/adventure

Last of Us looks disappointing

Sucker Punch > Naughty Dog

Halo is good, with co-op and a broken, always on, shoot button

Metroid Prime 2 while not great isn't completely bad, it is semi-enjoyable

Other M has good gameplay, although easy

Kid Icarus: Uprising looks like the most exciting release so far this year

Skyward Sword > OoT, MM > OoT, WW > OoT, TP < OoT

#33 Posted by hippiesanta (9884 posts) -
Playstation Home is better than The Sims

I prefer halo 2 over halo ce in terms of sp

#35 Posted by 2013th (209 posts) -

syphon filter 2 is the best action game ever

#36 Posted by getyeryayasout (7598 posts) -

#37 Posted by Hoznary (539 posts) -
Uncharted 1 is better then the rest because it is not about set pieces -____- Saints row 3 is better then GTA IV Fallout is boring FPS games are boring & repetitive All final fantasies except 8,9 & 10 sucks and are overrated (except cloud & sephiroth and Barret) Halo is the most boring sh!t since barbie games got licensed
#38 Posted by deangallop (3811 posts) -

Fear 2 is better than fear 1 by a mile.

Farcry 2 was actually pretty good.

GTA4 was amazing.

Driver san fran and NFS:HP are the best racing games this gen.

Conviction was pretty awesome.

Mass effects ending wasn't that bad.

Wii sucked hard.

Not dissin' your opinion man, but when you say Metroid is shallow, what do you mean by shallow?

#40 Posted by OreoMilkshake (12825 posts) -
Metroid Prime sucks. No Sony game is fun. Star Fox Adventures is the best Star Fox game. Racing sims are boring. Wii has the best exclusives this gen. I hated A Link to the Past. Call of Duty is fun.
#41 Posted by UnrealLegend (5888 posts) -

-GTA IV is more fun than San Andreas.

-inFamous and LBP are by far the best PS3 franchises.

-Half-Life 2 > Half Life.

-Just Cause 2 was the best game of 2010.

-Vanquish has some of the worst voice acting in a game, ever. (Yes, I know I put this right under Just Cause 2. Deal with it.)

-For the most part, Assassin's Creed: Revelations was a better game than Brotherhood.

-A Crack in Time is the best Ratchet and Clank game to date.

-Mass Effect has horribly clunky combat.

-Unreal Tournament III was not terrible.

-PS All Stars looks like fun.

:lol:

#42 Posted by Wiimotefan (4078 posts) -

I agree with you on God of War and Metroid Prime 3.

I also think MGS4 is only average at best and garbage when compared to the rest of the series. This actually seems to be the popular opinion everywhere but System Wars though.

Besides DKCR I always found the DKC series to be pretty meh.. Great looking games, but the actual platforming wasn't so hot imo.

I always found SM64 to be boring. I thought so back when it came out and it aged horribly since then. I'm shocked when gamers even attempt comparing it to the Galaxy games.

I really enjoyed FFXII.. nuff said.

I really think voice acting takes away from many games, especially rpgs. What can I say, I'd rather read a mediocre book than watch a mediocre movie. The characters just seem more easily relatable that way and the music takes control of the scene rather than the often horribly voiced dialogue.

I prefer good gameplay over every other aspect of a game. I know everyone says that, but very few people actually mean it.

#43 Posted by JigglyWiggly_ (23603 posts) -

Uncharted characters are very cookie cutter even in spite of the superb voice acting. They seem like the kind of vanilla characters that come out of a B action movie or a made for TV action movie IMO. I think the idea that they are best gaming has to offer is ridiculous.

Resident Evil 5 is not that bad. Granted, I played the whole thing in co-op so that undoubtedly improved the experience, but it was a pretty good action game IMO. Yes, RE4 sh!ts on it from a great height, but that doesn't mean it's not a decent game on its own merits.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is the best game in the franchise as well as the best shooter in a long time

#47 Posted by TopTierHustler (3961 posts) -

Uncharted sucks.

Skyrim is awesome.

SF4 is too turdly

#48 Posted by deangallop (3811 posts) -

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is the best game in the franchise as well as the best shooter in a long time

OB-47

I was really thinking of buying it.

Two questions: Does it have a good campaign? and if I go into multiplayer now with a level 1 character will I get stomped?

#49 Posted by TopTierHustler (3961 posts) -

I also think MGS4 is only average at best and garbage when compared to the rest of the series. This actually seems to be the popular opinion everywhere but System Wars though.

Wiimotefan

It was better than 2 imo. Better story and bosses.

1 and 3 were way better and it didn't deserve a 10.

#50 Posted by OB-47 (10909 posts) -

Fear 2 is better than fear 1 by a mile.

Farcry 2 was actually pretty good.

GTA4 was amazing.

Driver san fran and NFS:HP are the best racing games this gen.

Conviction was pretty awesome.

Mass effects ending wasn't that bad.

Wii sucked hard.

deangallop

I disagree with the last two, but other than that I agree with you a bit. I found Fear 2 to be a much better game than Fear 1 to be honest, and I love Driver San Fran. Also conviction is damn awesome, and it only p!ssed off old die hard fans who don't want different interpretations of their franchises
