Your Unpopular Video Game Opinions thread!

#1rwfan2cPosted 2/1/2013 10:13:42 PM
quick Explanation of this thread.

-Post your Opinions of things in the gaming industry that is by no mean the popular opinion. (This could be about a game, a charecter, a company, etc.)

-This is not a trolling topic... so please dont argue about other people opinions (They are opinions after all so they cannot be incorrect).



Mine are as follows (May add more later.)

1. Resident Evil 4 killed the series.

2. Halo has been a pretty bland and non-entertaining series since Halo 2. (Halo:CE wasn't great either but you can't deny what it did for FPS's on the consoles.)

3. The Uncharted Series is no where near as good as everyone says it is.

4. The Elder Scrolls games are nearly unplayable (Not unplayable because of broken controls, unplayable because of the blandness of everything.)

1. Halo is the most starkly bland and uninteresting franchise in 2 gens.

2. Metal Gear is the most ridiculous franchise in gaming history. Kojima hates narrative and context, then makes movie-games. It's freaking mind-boggling.

3. Dark Souls is great, but it's also dramatically overrated. It's also not a RPG. It's the most intricate hack-and-slash ever made.

4. Gaming is not a skill.

1. Skyrim is a vastly overrated game. I love the elder scrolls games and was really looking forward to skyrim. But with the game mechanics being way simplified compared to, say, morrowind, it just couldn't hold my attention at all.

2. While I love bioshock's story, I enjoyed bioshock 2 much more. Gameplay was much tighter and the ending was way better than the firsts

Edit: I'd like to add the first number from TC's list. I enjoyed both 4 and 5 but compared to the first games they are a definite step down

Decimation X3 is a better Space Invaders than Space Invaders Extreme and Space Invaders Infinity Gene

Dark Souls is trash and Borderlands is boring.

Sonic '06 isn't that bad.

Destroy All Humans: Path of the Furon was a pretty good game.

MMOs just aren't that fun.

Controllers are always a better option than mouse and keyboard.

Nintendo has been making pretty much the same Zelda game for 15 years now.
