What games did you expect that you wouldn't like ,but end up liking.

Er, I think the First Sonic And All-Stars Racing game is one for me. Got it for a gift, didn't exactly think It would be good since most Mario Kart Clones are mediocre at best. Ended up loving it.

It was my birthday and I was at the mall looking for a game to impulse-buy. Went into EB Games and walked out with Mass Effect 2 (just came out).

Best impulse-buy ever.

As weird as this sounds, Nier.

It was a surprise for me since it passed completely under my radar until four days from release. I bought it on a whim since it looked interesting and the story just promptly blew my mind. Sleeper hit of the decade imo.
My spell check just had a mental breakdown...

Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom (Picked it up in a bargain bin)

Spider-man Web of Shadows - found it a dead mall for $5 -nice little game

Asura's Wrath - didn't expect it to be as good as is

Demon's Souls

I actually avoided getting the Asian import when it was first released for some reason, I guess I didn't know enough about the game and I was skeptical that it could be any fun. But I got the NA edition when it came out and it is easily my favourite new IP this gen.
Why? Because **** you is why.
