So the other day, I game an opinion and I said ICO sucked. Story time: My buddy bought the game years back when it first came out and he HATED it. I never understood why he hated it. I kept saying "people say it's a great game" "Game sites give it good ratings" He said to play it. I said, I will later down the road. It is now on PSN for free. I gave it a download and popped it on. Played it for 10-12 minutes. I saved the girl in the cage, yada yada.
He was right. I did not like it at all. I can look past the graphics; yes it is a PS2 game, it will not look as good as anything now or close to it unless you are playing the Wii or Wii-U (just joking Wii U kids.) For those who got their thong in a wad and have to have a reason for ME disliking a the game, here goes. The controls were absolutely abysmal and unresponisive. The camera angle was worse than that of a Ninja Gaiden game. (I love NG games btw - calm down people)
I'm a "first impressions kinda guy" YES, I can tell if I like a game within 10-20 minutes of playing. To me "story" is an after thought. If the controls suck, camera angle sucks, and general game mechanics suck, then I cant play long enough to give a damn about the story. I dont have to invest 5-6 hours into a story and waste my time for me to say, "Hmm this game kinda sucks or this game is awesome" Also, why do people feel the need to hate on those who have opinions? Whats the difference between me saying "Ico sucks" and some other GS user using the rating scale and rating it a 3.5 or 4 with no explanation of his/her rating?
I know people get mixed up with their fanboy/girl crap and want to rape/kill/riot if some one has an opinon and says that a critically acclaimed games sucks. Here's the thing, it's not the end of the world. You like your games, I like mine. Not everyone is going to like the same damn game. I wasn't trying to troll, I just dont have a lot of time to sit on here and post a long a$$ blog about why I dislike a game.
P.S. Making this blog was probably a mistake, Im sure I will get flammed or $hit on, but oh well. It's not the end of the world.
Have a good one guys, Im out for 4 days after tonight. See ya Tuesday night! :)
