Is there a difference between a good game, and a game you personally enjoy?

I enjoy playstation all stars a ton, but I wouldn't call it a good game in general tbh..

I think that distinction is easily made in Music, Movies, and Literature.

In video games, I think it's much harder to make that distinction.

Resident evil 6 is a fantastic, very well made game.

Some people hate it simple because it's not survival horror.

I LOVE games that people ding for being technically unsound (Alpha Protocol) or for having unimpressive mechanics (Psychonauts, though that criticism is unwarranted, IMO).

So I think there is an objectively sound game in terms of graphics and mechanics, but that might not line up with what subjectively makes a good game for me (great characters, great narrative, awesome storytelling, branching paths, etc.)

It exist games that are so bad so they are fun to play.

I agree. But it is there.

Which is something most people dont understand. When I say I don't like a game that doesn't mean I think it's bad. Or when I say I like a game that doesn't mean it's a good game.

I enjoy just about any third-person shooter over the Last of Us, but not a single one comes even close to matching the effort and quality put into the story, characters, sound, graphics and so forth that make TLOU the "better" game.

For me a prime example would be GTA IV. It a very well made game on all accounts, but I've never had any fun playing it.

Personally any game I like I consider a good game. I don't care that a reviewer online said it was bad, likewise I don't care that some people on a forum said it was bad... if I like it then it's a "good game". lol

I personally enjoyed Duke Nukem Forever and Haze, so the $5 I paid for each makes them good in my opinion.

But for $60? No.
