What games did you like a lot that other people claim were no good? I thought Perfect Dark Zero was a very good game and a lot of fun. It carried over the same exact type of game that Goldeneye and PD 1 were, with the same great gameplay. Yet, nobody likes it. I really don't understand why.

Dragon Age 2- not as good as DA Origins but I still enjoyed it.

Kotor 2- honestly I liked it a lot more than kotor, but only slightly.

RE 6- have to say I enjoyed the crap out of this game, it's not as good as RE4,RE2 and RE1 remake but it is easily my 4th fav RE game.

Serious Sam 3 BFE- don't know if people really hated it or didn't expect much, still one of my fav mindless shooters though.

Far Cry 2- the infinite respawn of check points was annoying as hell but I really enjoyed Far Cry 2.

The first Killzone

And to a lesser extend, because many like it as well, Spec Ops The Line

I really liked Far Cry 2. Sure, driving through endless savannah for a long time did get old, but I loved the rest of the gameplay.

Do people dislike NIER? I love it to death. I enjoyed Ninety Nine Nights also. Oh, and Tenchu Z was pretty fun. Final Fantasy XIII as well, put is it hated?

Kotor 2- honestly I liked it a lot morethan kotor, but only slightly.

Far Cry 2 is disliked by people who don't appreciate the quality that's gone into it, sure there's some tedious driving and frequent enemy respawns, but how else are you going to get from A-B or have frequent action. Screw those haters.

I dont know if people gernerally disliked it or just not many played it but condemmed 2 bloodshot was one of my favourite games this gen. And underated in my opinion. Then again I do love horror games.

Completely agree on Spec Ops: The Line. It's a horribly overlooked gem that shows games really can make you give a sh!t. My pick would have to be Nier. It got mostly poor reviews but it honestly has to be one of my top five gaming experiences for the last 10 years. It's a diamond in the rough, so to speak. A great story and characters coupled with a bleak, depressing world and wonderful, haunting music creates an absolutely unforgettable atmosphere. The gameplay and sidequests left something to be desired, but I've played higher rated games with gameplay just as bad, if not worse.

Yeah that last part was so people don't freak out, Kotor is like if you don't think it's the best game ever made then you're a sinner. Don't get me wrong I love Kotor but it has aged poorly compared to kotor 2.

Apparently KOTOR 2. Never knew there was hate for the game and quite I don't think I want to believe it. Maybe not as good as KOTOR but it is by NO means a bad game. In fact by no means is it a good game; it is a great game.

It's practically considered the second coming of gaming Jesus in System Wars; I'm sure there are some that dislike it but from the general response I've seen (community not critics) it's a highly regarded game.

Metroid: Other M was my favroite release for the Wii and it gets slagged quite a bit.

Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2. HO LEE CRAP people talk so much sh1t about this game that even I wouldn't touch it for a while. But it turned out to be pretty good. Its still hella weird though. :|

Also, Final Fantasy 12 and 13. So many fans whined that "ohhh the last great FF was 10." Bullcrap. 12 was GREAT! 13 wasn't as good as 12 or even 10 in my opinion, but it wasn't that bad either. It was flawed but still fun.

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames- still one of my favorite games, I sometimes spend hours just running around blowing s*** up in co op. WET- I've bought the game three times now(wore out the first one and the second was stolen), and I still play through it at least 3 times a year. Amazing soundtrack. Captain America: Super Soldier- still my favorite of the new generation beatem ups. Batman(AA and AC) may be more polished- and cringe inducing- and Sleeping Dogs may be Grand Theft Auto-y, but there's something about stomping supernazis with a giant metal disc that is eminently satisfying. Not to mention the campaign isn't long enough to become a chore on multiple replays(like Arkham City).

Yeah, same here for the most part. I think super Japanese-y games like the stuff NIS America localizes are an acquired taste. They either attract flaming hatred or get ignored all together. I like a lot of the stuff they've localized though. :P

I think I would say Geist I like it; I don't know about actual fans hating it but reviews hated it.

Geist reviews

Nintendo Power gave it a 5.0 and they were owned by Nintendo at the time and this is a Nintendo game.

Sonic06

YES

I actually did enjoy Sonic 06. I feel like I'm the only one.

The game gets an unjustified amount of hate.

It's mostly because people suck at this game. It's not easy. The controls take some getting used to.

But you know what? EVERY GAME HAS A LEARNING CURVE.
