Franchises that are praised by the general, but you dislike with a passion

Mass Effect.
So bizarre having one of this gen's biggest RPGs be a cover-based shooter. I did try to like it.

I don't really have any hatred towards games but i guess it's because I don't have personality.

I generally don't like those Japanese dungeon crawlers, it looks so cheap and archaic..

I probably won't hate them so much if they had more production value though.. like good animations, showing your party and their skill animations, tons of voice acting.

I still can't say that I really "hate" them tho

Assassin's Creed: lol, it made me dislike all characters with a hooded design, like kat in dmc and the soul sacrifice skin.

Mass Effect: +1 on this.

Sonic the Hedge hog: when was the last good hit?

Assassin's Creed is another one of mine, actually. I don't hate it, but I sure as hell don't understand it.

Played the first one. It was really cool at first, but then it was insanely repetitive. Eventually just stopped caring because I was so bored of doing the same thing over and over and over. Heard the sequel was a lot better, but couldn't be bothered to even put the disc in the machine even though my roommate owned it. Then the commercials for Assassin's Creed 3 and it being set in the Civil War just looked incredibly stupid. Oh well.

"Dislike with a passion" is a little too dramatic for me - I tend to simply ignore future releases of games I couldn't particularly get into. That being said, series that I simply couldn't get into that seem to sell like crazy are "Gran Turismo" and "Smash Bros".

When it comes to "Gran Turismo", I just prefer to play arcade racers like Midnight Club, Need for Speed, or Burnout. Gran Turismo is just too realistic for my tastes, and I tend to lose interest in it rather quickly.

Smash Bros., on the other hand, is a little too simple for me. I mean, it's mildly fun for 10 minutes, but I couldn't imagine playing this for hours at a time the way the some people can. PSASB has a very similar quality to it where I can't force myself to play it any longer than 15-20 minutes - It's ok in short spurts, but I can't take it as seriously as i would a more conventional fighter like Virtua Fighter or Soul Calibur.

Metal Gear Solid series. 40 minute cut scenes followed by 10 minutes of game play is not a game it's an interactive movie.
