What games have been critically and universally acclaimed over the years that you just couldn't get into and enjoy notable ones for myself have to be half-life 2, GTA IV and the mass effect series aswell.

Dark Souls. I suck at it. It brings me more frustration than joy, and that's a good indication for me to stop playing.

i was playing oblivion last night actually but my character has been turned into a vampire and the quest for the cure just feels like an inconvenience to me personally but other than that I enjoyed oblivion a lot.

Batman AC, Red Dead, GTA, Mass Effect, Assassins Creed, These just boared me to tears. I like fantasy and cartoonish games. I can't stand games with guns.

Burnout Paradise (all you have to do to beat the game is push the trigger).

CoD games after MW (same s*it over and over...and over).

Assassins Creed series (love the historical settings, but hate the modern part of the story).

Max Payne 3 (good game but got bored and didn't finish it).

Borderlands 2 (good game but got bored fast).

I have to say that I agree with you about Assassin's Creed. Something feels wrong with it, I mean Ubisoft seemed to be trying to make it as mainstream as possible. That kind of ruined it, IMO.

The story and the design could be much better. Longer development time would definitely have helped the series.

Ratch & Clank: ToD. Graphics and sound were awesome, but the gameplay was so repetitive that I got bored and stopped playing. Same thing with FlOw. Was great for about an hour and got extreme repetitive and boring. I just wanted both games to hurry up and end.

Single Player maybe, but online multiplayer never gets boring with people yelling and screaming in your ear. lol!! The single player game is fun in small dozes. I'll usually play for an hour at a time and move on to something else.

I hate RPG's and RPG Hybrids mostly because of leveling up and passive upgrades, this hate has spilled over to any racing game with upgradable cars.

  • Animal Crossing (I hate it)
  • Blue Dragon - What a bummer this is to me personally.
  • Chromehounds - Decent concept, just not for me.
  • DDR Ultramix 1 - There's like one good song on this and I'd have to look it up.
  • Dead Island - Blah, not sure why I don't want to play this. It's funner to watch someone else play to me.
  • Dead Rising
  • Dead Space - I really tried for about 3 or 4 hours but this game isn't that great to me.
  • Devil May Cry 4
  • Duke Nukem Forever - Acclaimed for what? Atleast it's not completely broken but this game fizzles!
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Final Fantasy IX
  • Final Fantasy Tactics
  • Half-Life 2
  • Jet Set Radio Future
  • Just Cause I+II - Two is a big step up but it's not my cup of tea.
  • Kameo - Good music, that's just about it
  • Killzone
  • Kingdom FING Hearts II (8 hours into this I couldn't take anymore)
  • Lord of Arcana - This wasn't even critically acclaimed was just a "Monster Hunter clone" why start the game off so hard?
  • Lost Planet
  • Metal Gear Solid 2
  • Metroid Prime
  • Modern Warfare 2 (3 hours or something in I just can't take this anymore.)
  • Mortal Kombat Deception - this game just isn't that good
  • Ninety Nine Nights I+II - Concept is carried out much better in Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2.
  • Panzer Dragoon Orta
  • Pokemon SoulSilver (17 hours played, it's just not the same as the old days on Red)
  • Resident Evil 2
  • SoulCalibur IV - This series has jumped the shark, the characters feel hollow. Bad physics.
  • Star Wars KOTOR 1 (2 I played Go Obsidian I guess)
  • The Simpsons Game - just not that great
  • Uncharted 2
  • WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011 - Just not as good as 2007
  • Zelda II
  • Zelda Wind Waker (Gave up hours into this one)

These games don't get a pass from me. Edit 3 other games added.

Dark souls may be that game but I did get it a year late. When some one helped me it made it fun. Maybe I should just try to go back into it.

Don't be sorry. It was the same for me. I found it frustrating overall, ans just couldn't get into it.

The big ones from this gen were Uncharted 2 and Assassin's Creed 2. Uncharted was too focused on cinematcs and the gameplay was just simply not there. Assassin's creed 2 just felt half hearted the entire time.

Lol doesn't sound like fun :P. I'll admit it's a good highly polished game, but I find it boring. If it had more of a sense of speed, then maybe.
