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

Turn based RPG's. There are many good and many bad I'm sure, I just can't tell the difference because I hate that combat style. "Hey, let's all stand in a circle and take turns throwing fire at eachother" just doesn't work for me.

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...


Opinions are opinions, but what MGS games have you played?

MGS1, 2, PW, 4, and a demo for 3. MGS1 and to a lesser extent 2 were acceptable. I mean MGS1 was on the PSX so it had a lot of technical limitations. But I felt going from 1 through 4 the game kept aspects of the game around "just because it was trademark MGS" instead of improving on the game.

That doesn't mean I don't respect people's opinions or trash people for liking them. Just for me, I have tried time and time again to get into the series and just haven't been able to do it.

Mario. I hate them and i think the should be taken out back and shot, but i understand that they have solid gameplay, it's just everything else about them is so dull.

The Witcher 2.

I KNOW this is a good game, but I just could NOT get into it. Dunno if it was the gameplay or what, but for whatever reason, I just wasn't feeling it. The game just never 'clicked' with me.

I still have it and I hope to play through it someday with better results, but for right now, its just kinda sitting in the pile.


Also, the Metal Gear games.

I loved watching my old rommate play through MGS1, and I played through most of MGS2 myself (up until the Raiden part), but I have never been that big a fan of the entire series. I don't hate it by any means, but these games have never been on my radar to be honest.
