Games you can objectively acknowledge are good, but you just can't get in to

For me the one I've referenced to the most has probably been KoToR. I know it's a great game, I even have fun while playing it most of the time. However I've never beaten it and for whatever reason I just can't get into it. I even loved SWtoR (since unlike a lot of people I don't even have the time to really reach end game so I never hit that wall, lol) and while I'm not a HUGE fan of Star Wars I do like the movies.

More recently has been XCom. Again I like the game and can fully acknowledge it's a great game, but I just haven't been able to get into it lately. I'm going to give it one more shot before I trade it in towards Tomb Raider next week.

I think the consoles who hold the most games like this for me though has been the PS2 and PS3. Uncharted 2 (oddly enough I loved 1), Okami, Ratchet and Clank series, and Shadow of the Colossus just to name a few.

Now I want to be clear too, this is a very different list than "popular games I didn't like". There's tons of "popular" games that IMO were not objectively good. These, however, are all games that I can fully recognize as decent-great games but personally just don't gel with me.

All BioWare and Bethesda games, plus any strategy game that isn't a Worms game. Also the Borderlands games.

I like how the GameFAQs spellcheck shows that the word "Wii" is fine, but the words "Xbox" and "Kinect" show up as typos.

None. I like good games.

Closest thing I have to this would be the Halo series.

A friend of mine had one of them and we played a few rounds. He showed me a few arenas he had built, and I could tell he genuinely loved it. After I left his house, I had the same level of interest in the games that I had when I walked in.... zero.

I have no interest in it myself, but I don't deny the fact that plenty of gamers love it. Opinions and all that.

Metroid Prime, for sure. First that comes to mind, anyway. Whole series.

Most RTS as well

The Metal Gear series


That just falls under my list "popular games I didn't like, but IMO aren't good either and strongly feel they are actually objectively bad...truly not understanding why they are so popular". Haha...yeah...

Elder Scrolls games and Fallout. Generally I don't like 100+-hour games. Needless to say I stay away from MMO's. As you get older, your time becomes more valuable and you start choosing wisely how you spend it.
