I'm going with Death Stranding. It got a lot of hate for being a walking simulator, but it's actually a fun game. There's also a shooting component to it that often gets overlooked. The story had a cool premise, but I admit the characters weren't that great. The marketing of the game also didn't do a good job of explaining what the game was really about or what made it interesting. But overall, great game. I'm glad I gave it a chance.

How about you, SW? What game got the most undeserved hate last gen?

Wait what? it got the most undeserved praise.

Reviewers were calling it boring, a slog and all other things, and still giving it 9's & 10's.

You may wanna go back and revisit the history.

You know a game is shit when you try and turn it into a snowboarding game just to find some fun in it LOL.

Lets be honest here OP the only reason you're saying this is because you have a soft spot for Kojima, when in reality he's a hack.

Athem without a doubt. The game was a solid game that dropped the ball because it wanted to be a Destiny but didn't have the structure to do so. The single player component on the other hand was solid.

It felt and looked good, but the missions were bad. 6/10 game.

Does something like a game deserved to be hated even if it is poor-made and extremely flawed?

TLOU2. Not only from last gen, but all generations i've part off of.

The hate is so insane that even now you can just leave a comment on youtube about the fact that you enjoyed the game, and a dozen of dumbasses will quote you stating horseshit they've heard or seen on the social media, while none of them even played the game. Its real something. Never saw anything like it before. ND created a monster.

Bloodborne. I can't understand why people don't love this game more. 92 on Metacritic? Why so low?

Because a lot of ppl play video games and expect a brainded hand holdy experience that is so easy that you can watch a movie while playing your shit game. BB did not deliver in that department.

"it was hard so i stopped playing". Its like people forget that video games are supposed to be challenging so the actual progress is felt. If you don't want to be challenged, go watch a movie instead.

100% agree. Can you believe some of them only give Bloodborne a 9.4? Thats absurd its a 9.9/10 at least.

Prey. It deserve more credit. the fact that it got 6/10 here is beyond me as this is much better than many of overrated crap like witcher 3, COD, RDR2 and others.

Metro Exodus. one of the best game of last gen that got very underserve hate for no reason.

Gotta love how you people think that because you love a game (that many of millions don't) that it must be scored a 10/10 or 100/100.

Its a hack n slash game that 98% of the PS fanbase didn't care for LOL.

Death Stranding, AC Valhalla (even though its a cross gen game), FF15, MGSV, Borderlands 3 and ESO

All severely underrated and got hate cause it was "cool" or kids with an attention span of a waffle was playing them.

If Borderlands 3 got hate then it was well deserved, i played it about 9 months after release and it was a broken mess, with enemies glitching into walls, their health not dropping, to crashing back to the dashboard, fast travel not working, and the game even crashes the Xbox One X where it shuts the console down making it think its overheating, and i still don't think they've fixed it.

Game is a clusterfuck.

I was bored with the AC formula by the time I completed AC2 in 2009. Valhalla has basically the exact same formula, in 2020. Now it's even bigger and everything takes longer to finish, making it even more boring.

When you enjoy doing the same shit in a videogame for 11 years throughout 10 samey games, it's not other people who's weird.

Its a different formula but more bad. 2009 formula ended with syndicate.

I played Origins. Felt like I was playing previous AC, but with annoying loot and unecessary talents. Like you, I saw people calling it different to other AC games, and that's why I got it. Those two things I mentioned aside, it's exactly the same as other AC games. Different formula my ass. It's the same formula with extra annoyances.

It can be similar but odyssey and valhalla are neither assassins nor creed.

many people criticize origins/odyssey/valhalla because its nothing like old formula.

Yep facts make you salty, imagine crying over a 9.4 lol.

The funniest part is the game isn't even a system seller.

Yes. The raw hatred for ND doing anything even slightly new or different rather than just "Same exact shit again" is depressing. Can't think of any other medium (maybe hardcore band fans?) where fans want the best works to get identical, rehashed sequels.

Games aren't "supposed" to be anything, despite what weirdos on forums* say ;) A game can be creative, interesting, entertaining or emotionally moving with no challenge at all.

Sea of thieves. Yes, it launched with not enough content....but updates were frequent. It has about the most gorgeous visuals going, and it's the perfect antidote to blam blam, die and respawn games. Got so much hate because people compared it to Sony exclusives like God of war etc.... different type of game, but equally as enjoyable.

I do not go as far trashing a game I haven't played, no. Especially not on superficial grounds (i.e. I don't have that system so it must suck or it's a Sony movie game yadayada )

Mirror's Edge Catalyst people say going open world was a mistake I disagree I think for having a parkour game it fits perfect for it I just wish there was more interiors in it. The game still looks and feels great today I just think alot of people shit on it because their nostalgia for the first ME is so strong. There is some fair criticism though like alot of the upgrades are pretty worthless mostly the movement ones that where already in the first game.

"Hate" is a strong word I try avoiding using it, the word you are looking for is "underappreciated" and as such, last-gen game that I think got underappreciated was Titanfall 2. I love that game for the single player that Respawn got it right but was underappreciated all because it had "EA" label and I wish people gamers could layoff the whole its EA game, so what? Just because it's EA doesn't mean the game itself shouldn't be the blame. Titanfall 2 was really underappreciated last-gen indeed.

Athem without a doubt. The game was a solid game that dropped the ball because it wanted to be a Destiny but didn't have the structure to do so. The single player component on the other hand was solid.

It felt and looked good, but the missions were bad. 6/10 game.

Anthem's gameplay was legit fun and I enjoy flying all over the place felt like I was Ironman in a way but everything else just sucked big time. I hope the new Mass Effect game will have the same gameplay cause I sure hope to fly everywhere else.

Indies in general: 'looks like a mobile game', 'we don't need flash games on consoles', etc

For me indies getting relevance was the best thing that happened to this industry in decades. AAAs are getting insanely good and polished, and that's awesome, but indies just revived a ton of dead genres and created new ones. At the end, they bring much more options to the table, which is always positive.

@warmblur: The open world killed Catalyst for me. I think if they ever make another it should not be open world - but should have large closed off environments with multiple paths. Sorta like Dishonored.

My answer ironically is a game that also got alot of crap for it's open world - Rage 2. The open world is uninspired, driving was a total let down and it had some terrible technical issues - but the gunplay and unlocking all the upgrades was super fun to me , got a good 25 hours out of it.

Oh Andromeda is another one. Yes the story and characters are forgettable at best but the exploration was decent and combat was alot of fun.

As for Anthem - i think it deserved the negativity but ... it's still enjoyable, when it works. It's a shame it was infected by the herpes that is the looter shooter genre otherwise it could've been pretty great.

Its like people forget that video games are supposed to be challenging so the actual progress is felt. If you don't want to be challenged, go watch a movie instead.

Games aren't "supposed" to be anything, despite what weirdos on forums* say ;) A game can be creative, interesting, entertaining or emotionally moving with no challenge at all.

(*Yes, I know I'm one too!)

Originally, they were created to be challenging, so when i state that "they were supposed to", that's what i am referring to. Its only for the last 15 years that gaming in general were casualized the f*ck up with the normal difficulty feeling like the very easy difficulty, checkpoints every 1.3 minutes, no punishment on death (all the killed enemies stay dead. Lol Ubishit games), etc. That's a hobby degradation. Then, you have those same people asking for Easy mode in Sekiro when Miyasaki have stated multiple times that the reason he has only one difficulty in his games is so everyone experiences the exact same game.

If your game is a qte emotional game like Heavy Rain, then sure, its not aiming for difficulty, but a game like BB certainly does, and difficult its how its supposed to be.

Knack 1. It was a fun brawler on hard setting. You really had to observe and learn the patterns to progress.
