you know those games everyone loved except you. here my list of the popular games i didn't like :amuse

-COD ( no particular reason, just couldn't get into it)
-GTA4 (almost all missions are similar: that guy got my money, find him, watch him get in a car, then get a car and pursue him. couldn't finish the game : too much boredom)
-La NOIRE (gosh that game is a scam, 60$ for the most boring gameplay ever in my opinion. I thought it was a mafia game like MAFIA2, but it turned out to be a police game where all you do is investigate and talk)
-Alan wake (flash the guy with your light and shoot him,repeat. youhoouuu)
-red dead redemption undead nightmare ( it was OK at the beginning, then it became really boring)
-fallout new vegas ( i have a gun to kill bugs? dafuq is that? )

I was disappointed by many games but there is only one which was a huge letdown for me:
Shadow of the collossus: I never understood that game. Basically, the entire game is made of one single thing: "fight vs boss". I don't even consider that a real game. Yes, the fights are good but the game is incredibly empty. The concept was praised but I do think it never deserved the positive critics it received. There was absolutely nothing to do in this game: the gameplay was the same from beginning to end, it was short, no side quests, almost no scenario, ... just fights.

Scav >> I just started Alan Wake. And it seeems more like an interractive movie than a real game. The problem is that it doesn't seem to be as good as Heavy Rain. The trouble with GTA is that the game is the same since GTA 3. GTA 3, vice city, GTA 4 ... it's just too repetitive. I stopped to play GTA4 because it just felt exactly like the 2 previous games.

I loved Shadow of the Colossus, but yes the game was incredibly short. There were a lot of cool secrets yet they didn't help make the game that much longer. Thing is that you shouldn't think of SotC as your ordinary game. It, Ico and games like Flow, Flower and Journey are more like interactive pieces of art.

Anyway I've never outright hated a game, but one video game I purchased and that I didn't really like or understand the great reviews was X-Men Legends for the PS2. I tried to like the game but I just couldn't and I'm a pretty big X-Men fan.

The Getaway.

So much hype and excitement over a game that had very poor graphics (I felt it was behind in technology updates even at the time of release) and overall game play wasn't that great imo. That "enjoyment factor" left my system after the first mission or two. I always wanted to see a GTA game based and set around London and this game destroyed the image I had of the potential possiblities of such a thing happening. xD

Call of Duty.

Where do I begin!? :fail

I would be able to, repeatedly, play the whole Time Crisis series over and over again and still enjoy every single mission in the game. Whereas with any COD games, I'll wait for it to load...start campaign mission or whatnot and get sick of the intro footage before the "roleplaying" begins.

Keep it simple and you'll have fun for a long long time. ;)


I must admit GTA4 was incredibily repetitive in a very irritating way. The last mission was a total disappointment as well. =(

GTA4

I thought it was terrible for a hundred reasons. Chief among them was how few immersion elements there were in the final game. You couldn't build a mafia empire or even really buy any property aside from safe houses. The whole game long you were just a lowly errand boy. All of the RPG elements that added so much to the GTA3 experience were tossed out in favor of a humorless and drawn out crime story; which I think was a bad tradeoff.

The driving mechanics were also completely terrible especially combined with how they designed the city layout. It's like they wanted it to be a pain in the ass to get from point A to point B for the sake of lengthening the total playtime.

Final Fantasy XIII

I'm not sure if this really qualifies since probably just as many people hate this game as love it but I definitely hated it. It to me was like a gaint mass of everything that's gone wrong in JRPG game development over the years.

It was style-over-substance, non-immerse, linear, had low difficulty, boring characters, poor dialogue, too many cut scenes, a combat system that makes getting characters to do what you want them to unnecessarily difficult, too much melodrama, and a story that borders on silly.

hahaha i feel ya bro. COD campaign is just linear : kill this, kill that. The cutscene are awful and doesn't make sense xD

I hate Battle field because its not so realistic and it has a very boring gameplay.

Heyy it wasn't that bad, boring campaign but it's got some pretty sweet graphics and destructible system and also online game play.

Battlefield was pretty boring. I recently played some missions in BF3 and I really couldn't get why it is so hyped.

It can be boring if you tend to play alone, but if you play as a team it's another story. The essence of this game is way more team based than CoD.

Could be Gats. That aside, I didn't like how it played. I am definitely not trying its online play.

Oh I thought you tried it online and did your lone wolf. Well that's weird to judge the game like this then, because the multiplayer is the sole main point of this game. The solo mission is just here to show how far the graphic engine can go (if you have a good PC).

Little Big Planet...
I think it's not really the game's fault but mine for being unable to play it properly OTL
Regardless, it was a game I did not enjoy at all...

Same, I somehow did not enjoy it at all. It's just not my type of game...

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

I don't see why it is dubbed "The Best Game ever made". It was really over hyped to me and when I finally played it I was let down.

Yeah, me too. I played Majora's Mask before and I love it, that's probably the reason.

Assassin's Creed. SOOOOOO repetitive, omg. And everyone was like "yeah, it's repetitive, but it's story makes you want to go on" and I always replied "If I just want a story, I'd read a book".

Shadow of the Colossus. I love the concept and everything, but I got bored in the second Colossus.

GTA 4. After GTA San Andreas (that game was AWESOME) I found this game completely boring.

I can't really defend the FF series... but have you played RE 2 and 4? They are amazing!

JRPG with "turn-by-turn battle system" are clearly not for everybody. Lots of people find it boring.
Resident Evil Games have an absolutely awful gameplay.

I like both but it's clearly not made for everybody.

I've tried them out, I dunno the gameplay just feels awkward for me. The atmosphere is definitely great though.

Well I do enjoy both the Dragon Quest and SMT series...but those are really the exceptions. I in general find classic style JRPGs very boring. Now an RPG like Dark Souls...that's a whole different story.

GTA 4
I swear this might as well be the game that has the worst hype ever.
What the heck was with all those unnecessary violence? This game is trying to look too vulgar and too violent imo,
so many things make no sense. I mean, all those missions are just variation of rinse and repeat and I'll be lucky if I get a variation
because sometimes its the freaking same thing.
The driving controls is lackluster, the characters feels like cardboard cutouts of stereotypical gangsters and what the I don't even care
to continue this rant like the game itself. I go back to it maybe what? Once a few weeks, only to blow cars up and find various ways to die
instead of doing its various missions or dating girlfriend number 3.
I can never get myself to complete the game because of how freaking shallow the plot is.
And some missions get unbearably irritating.

Oh I'm pretty sure I offended some gta fans here but I don't care, I hate this thing.

Dead Island
Initially it managed to build up the suspense and feels like a thriller-novel game.
But in the end it was all just mindless slashing, repeat this and that and more mindless slashing.
You spend hours driving a car, getting lost, slashing zombies head off, dying, more slashing.
Zombies aren't a threat, you don't feel scared because you have a car.
The NPCS are dry and some flat out annoying.
Playing as the MC is a chore. Repetitive.

Dragon Quest series
I don't get why people love this so much. I agree that it's pretty fun at first but then it goes into grinding mode REALLY fast.
I like adventure games but Dragon quest seems to be the kind where the towns are never ending.
Maybe I'm just put off by the long journey and the sudden difficulty spike in some of the games.
Or walking in dungeons and getting annoyed and really pissed off by the monsters encounter.
Ugh...there's no max repels in the game either.
SMT is much more fun because of the obvious strategies. I don't hate on DGQ as much as I don't get the hype or the tactics in it.

Black ops, Modern Warfare, "Insert random wargame here with another name and trying to be cool"
No substance. Modern warfare can be painted black ops and nobody can really tell the difference imo.
All of them love to be cool with their very dangerous missions that in the end the only way you can approach them
is just gunning down everyone you see.
Rinse and repeat. Maybe I'm bitching because I'm a loser but I can't stand hours shooting down people again and again.
Is there suppose to be a plot I should care about here?
Most of the time fps online community are the worst gaming ones out there.
Filled with people who think they are kings because
they get a few headshots and whine like a baby when they get insta'd by a newb.
At least Crysis and Halo have the decency to make things unique by offering some awesome bosses/mobs.
L4D was fun because it felt original and had fun melee plus ACTUAL teamwork.
COD and all this fps is just you bitching about whoever stole your kill. It feels like counter strike polished 99 times....graphically.

Kill me if I'm a bad reviewer but I don't care..my experience with FPS had been really bad.


Final Fantasy 7...actually I dislike the whole series. Resident evil games also.

If you have a PSP, try Crisis Core. Maybe it will change your option on FF7 like it did for me.
