What's a game series you don't understand the love for?

COD - generic military shooter that doesn't innovate. I really don't get why people buy these games every year. Anyways how about you guys?

I've also posted this on the ps4 board.

I have one but please don't get offended:

The Zelda games: Seriously i never understood the appealing of this franchise, not going to lie are great at all but always its the same formula:

-A linear adventure between dungeons
-The weapon that you get in the dungeon kill the Boss
-You defeat Ganon
-End

Mario. Not fun. Never got the hype around it.

Pikmin. Never played one of them because they look too much like kiddie games. Also never played Pokemon, Dragonball Z, etc; I'm not into those animes.

Xenoblade -> X stuff. Xenoblade was nothing spectacular to me so I don't get all the hype for it, and X has had extremely underwhelming trailers so far.

I'm noticing a pattern of most of these complaints coming from people who never played the respective games they complain about... hmmm.

For me it's probably Donkey Kong. I'm fine with the games themselves, even if they're more or less your typical sidescroller; I'm not so crazy about the characters themselves. Then again this may just mostly be only because of all the people requesting more of the characters to be in Smash Bros lately, which I have to say that I don't fully understand. Buuut, to each their own I guess.

Agree people don't even try to understand, and say the can't

For me its F-Zero Own all but 1 of the games, and honestly I don't see why people want another so bad.

COD, and Halo are 2 others I played a few games in the series(don't own em played them by family members houses), and honestly they seem like bland 1st person shooters. Its not that I hate shooters I loved Unreal Tournament, Grew up playing Wolfeinstein 3d, Doom, quake, and Hexxen to name a few, but these newer ones I just don't know I don't see them as fun they feel... bland I guess I dunno how to quite put it any better. Its not that I hate 1st person shooters as I can still fire of Unreal Tourney, and have fun just these new ones I don't see the draw of.
