What game/franchise do you think gets the most unwarranted hate?

Ive read, for better part of a year many folk take pot shots at Mass Effect 3 for a miriad of reasons, some legit and some paper thin or simply opinion. Thing is, I think its a runnaway success in most every way... I believe it to be a fantastic franchise with a bright future... and thus falsley ridiculed by many.

Any franchises you feel get this negative wrap by the snobby elitists (us :P ) that just isnt' warrented?

Most of these games gets criticized for things that are actually wrong with them.

No actually those 2 don't get enough hate. They're praised for having great graphics with mediocre game play.

There are plenty of them in my opinion. I'll list two:

Uncharted

I find the gameplay a lot of fun and diverse from the shoot-outs to the platforming and puzzle-solving. While not difficult puzzles they are enjoyable to go through. Also the presentation is top-notch but all you ever hear from haters is that the story sucks and it's pathetic. Drake and the other characters in the games have a lot of personality and are well-executed but the story criticism is what bothers me. These games never said to have stories as epic as The Odyssey or as intricate as Gone With the Wind, they are just fun summer blockbusters meant to entertian. To each their own but I'm left in confusion with some people's hate.

Halo

An incredibly fun series that I think garners a lot of hate because of the massive popularity it has. The shooting is incredibly solid and satisfing throughout and they are well-structured, varied campaigns. Plus the multiplayer usually has some great level design, but if you disagree then you could go ahead and try to make your own through Forge and see how well you do. :P I always felt the series never met the height they could have reached while Bungie was at the helm but I firmly believe 343's effort was a strong step and brought some amazing things to the table: great visuals, fun-to-fight enemies and the best sound design I've heard in a long while in a video game.

Mass Effect series (except the ending for ME3, yeah that deserves every bit of hate)

Uncharted series

I could list a few more but my new flame shield from Amazon hasn't shipped yet.

Because it's my favorite gen of this gen. I love stirring up controversy with the game because I can actually back it up since I love it so much. And you're not a moron if you don't like it. Just missing out on the true fun of the masterpiece that it is.

When it gets it: Bayonetta. Almost all of it is on a story, that at no point takes itself seriously to begin with. It makes it pretty clear from the get go it's going to be tongue n cheek. Consistently being overlooked for how awesome the gameplay is. I don't think by any mean the game is some clever comedy or something, but it's a flaw that hardly stops the rest of the game from being fantastic. Nor does it stop it from being by far the best hack n slash game this gen(although sure you could argue it's by default).

Probably Call of Duty.

It is like a game only Master Shakes would like.

Not at all, MasterShake likes games with very little experience in most of them. I've played Uncharted 1 over 20 times because I like it so much.

Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age 2.

No matter what BioWare do they're greeted with derision by a lot of people. It's a shame. I can't speak for DA2, but ME3 is the best game BioWare have released since 2003. It's everything they've strived for as a studio finally realized and people are still pissing over an ending that in all honesty is not that bad when you consider how so many videogames have terrible endings anyway. Would it have been awesome if the ending was better and more personal? Sure. Does it affect how amazing Mass Effect 3 is? Nope. Unless you're stupid. (Yeah, I went there)

Remove Dragon Age II. I forgive that ignorance because you haven't played it, but that game is legitimately awful and deserves every criticism that has been leveled at it.

Yeah, Bayonetta also gets hated on for the stupidest of reasons.

Fine.

I can't really speak for it, so I have no idea if its worthwhile or not. I have no real desire to play it either.

Call of Duty no contest. You don't have to love the series or even like it but damn, people love to b***h and moan about it.

If any publisher had a game that would sell 20 million units guaranteed every year, they would do it too

#47 Posted by UnrealLegend (5888 posts) -

GTA IV. It's the best of the series in almost every regard, yet people slam it all the time for not being filled with pointless mini-games and jetpacks.

Also, inFamous. It's easily the best PS3 exclusive along with LBP.

I'd say Call of Duty. The games are actually pretty decent, and they give you a good amount of content. The dlc is a bad deal, but it's not like you need to buy it.
