Games you like, but others don't

Recommended Posts

Basically the video game equivalent of the movie thread. Just name a game or games you like, but other people (generally) don't whether because they weren't received well by fans and/or critics at time of release or nowadays.

 

You can give explanations if you like. :)

 

For me..

 

1) GTA IV. Don't think I've ever seen a GTA game cause such a polarising divide, but I honestly loved GTA IV from when I first played it and I wouldn't hesitate in saying it's now my favourite video game of all time.

 

2) Mafia II. Pretty much like GTA IV. I almost didn't buy because people were talking about how bad it was, but I bit the bullet so to speak and bought it anyway. Fell in love with it.

 

3) Call Of Juarez: The Cartel. It's not one of those games I have a deep passion for, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless. The technical issues were hard to ignore, but I liked the concept which seemed to be one of the things it was panned for not being an old west game like the first two Call Of Juarez games however that's what I liked about it. It felt fresh. From memory its average rating was something like 4/10.

1. Dead Island. It's a game that was disappointing to many, but is very underrated for its gameplay. Every time I bring it up, it is immediately drowned in hate.

 

2. GTA IV (like you mentioned). Similarly to Dead Island, your opinions will be immediately shut down. It's a very disappointing divide in the playerbase.

 

3. The original Assassin's Creed (2007). Many loathed the repetitive gameplay, and while that is true, it's still underappreciated for what the game actually achieved, causing another separation in the playerbase.

Sonic 2006 is rubbish, but I eventually get used to the controls enough that some entertainment can be had. I'm striving to get all gold medals in it and that's saying something since most people I'd guess would finish the game and get the heck out while they could due to how clunky and rushed everything is.

 

The nonsensical plot and issues are also amusing. It's like The Room in game form.

I think the problem that most people have with Dead Island is that the first trailer literally has nothing to do with the game, except for an easter egg at the beginning. It was a pretty big bait and switch if you ask me.

 

My only real problem I have with it, is that random weapon quality crap. Oh this paddle is better than this other paddle for no reason except for the name being a different colour, oh and it's level locked...

For me it would be Destiny and Watch Dogs.

 

I don't play Destiny as much anymore but if I go back and play it some more, I'll be playing it for a few hours.

 

I love Watch Dogs' storyline. It's challenging in my opinion but sometimes it gets a little too challenging and I tend to rage and/or rage quit but nonetheless, It's a great game.

Well, I got too many. But let's just say the top ones:

 

- Saints Row The Third. Being called as GTA clone and hated by usually GTA fans. But that game gives me more enjoyment in customisation, chaos, well-balanced and high paced combat. Something I can't get in any GTA.

 

- Dead or Alive 5. Being called and hated as pervert game by non-players, especially SJW. I often get stereotypically called as 'pervert' for playing this game. Oh well. Tell you what, I enjoy this game because this fighting game was very noob friendly to play and offers good, responsive game control experience in a fighting game. Unlike other fighting games that make me go back n forth to move list or you end up punching like a retard, this game's like saying "welcome, just try and take it easy" to me.

 

- Fallout 4. This game is like a bucket full of sh*t dropped by so-called fans who disregard the quality this game has simply because it's not like any previous fallout and can't deal with new features. But hey, where else can I find an open world game, with dynamic environment that lets me do adventure and fight on it, while also giving me an option to build some part of the world in real time? Nowhere. This game is one of a kind. And despite all the sour experience I've had, I appreciate this game.

Far Cry 2. I know there're people who hold this game in high regard but from what I've read and known so far there are a lot of people who dislike or hate this game for various reasons. I absolutely loved this game on release and never stopped adoring this gem. To those playing on PC and still have certain complaints then give RealMode Realism mod a try. It tweaks the game making it more interesting and challenging.

Just a few from the top of my head...

 

Starting with GTA IV, obviously. Lesser example from the GTA series would be LCS, an overlooked game I love more than some of its more successful 3D Era counterparts.

 

From the AC series, I should mention Revelations, my favorite of the Ezio trilogy, which is by the popular opinion considered to be the worst of the three and III, which I've come to appreciate over the time. Unity has quite a lot of redeeming qualities too, especially when it comes to the gameplay. The awful trainwreck that is the story in that game stops me from truly liking it, though.

 

Speaking about delayed appreciation - Halo 4. The CoD elements in the MP were awful and the story was too ambitious to fit info the simple Halo campaign framework, but in hindsight, this game was able to live up to Bungie's legacy. Even surpass them, especially in the storytelling department, the flaws notwithstanding. Now, only if 5 was able to follow up on 4's promise... And since I'm writing about 343, I really like the Anniversary remakes too, which isn't really a popular opinion either.

 

MGSV - okay, the story is hardly a satisfying send-off for the series, but the core gameplay has hooked me in a way no other game did in a long time. And after all, I enjoy the story a great deal too. I actually enjoy the Venom twist, as ineffective as it might be, Kaz, Paz, Huey and Quiet were awesome and the Truth tapes soldified Zero as my favorite MGS character of all time. It's lacking, sure, but I don't think it's downright bad.

 

Then there are games like Watch Dogs or SW Battlefront. I don't think they are particulary great, but I enjoyed them a lot and since the internet talks about them as if they are some terrible atrocities inflicted upon mankind, I should bring them up too.

Call of duty 2- many of my friends dislike it for its "oldness" and not being able to sprint but i liked it for its story

 

Call of duty ghost - campaign was amazing

 

dead island- i mostly play because of the modded weapons i got.

  • Destiny: I have mixed feelings about it now, but it was pretty fun before they blanket-nerfed Hand Cannons. The Exotic HC's needed to get nerfed when TTK launched, not every f*cking HC. Amazing how a developer can f*ck up an entire class of weapons because of a notable handful. I'm trying to be positive about Rise of Iron because it does look cool, but if they keep nerfing my favorite guns, I'm not gonna bother.
  • Phantom Pain: Going off what Haytham said, best third-person mechanics I've played with in years. The story wasn't even up to MGS standards (which is pretty twisted tbh), but the smooth mechanics made it a fun ride, as did the tapes about major aspects in the series. R* needs to take notes on MGSV's core mechanics, I'm really f*cking tired of GTA having clunky ass character movement.
  • Fallout 4: Like MGSV, the story was... off, but the overall gameplay is gripping. Weapon and armor customization, some memorable side quests, plus the settlement system have me going back to this game. Mods on XB1 really amped up the game's replayability for me, I haven't touched that many games in the last few months ever since mods came over.
  • Skate 2: I don't know why people didn't like this one, it was really fun. New San Van was pretty rad, had a nice amount of spots, and felt really big. The original Skate had the best map IMO, but Skate 2's wasn't short of awesome to me.

There's probably more, but I can't think of them right now.

1. GTA IV. No idea why people hate this game. It's a fine game.

2. MGSV. Story is crap for the most part, I give you that, but the gameplay is the best out of all the MGS games I've played which isn't a lot but still. The controls and everything were smooth as f*ck and the HUD wasn't intrusive at all which is how i like my games.
3. Mafia II. Another game I see sh*tted on a lot for no reason. Even if they cut a lot of content and it didn't live up the perfection that is Mafia 1, it is still an amazing game.

4. Assassin's Creed III. Not even close to the best AC game but it's still a fun game with some amazing moments and characters (Haytham).

* Assassin's Creed III - This won't come as a surprise to anyone who knows me, but despite this one often being considered the worst in the series (and in all fairness, it does have some problems), it might just be my personal favorite.

 

* GTA IV - Duh.

 

* Batman: Arkham Knight - Yeah, it disappointed as the big amazing conclusion the series really deserved, had WAY too many Batmobile tank fights, not nearly enough bosses, and was seriously lacking in the Metroidvania feel of the previous games. But it's still an utter blast to play, the Batmobile (despite its overuse) is so much fun to drive and used in a lot of creative ways, and MAN is it gorgeous. And for all its faults, I enjoyed the story too. I actually like the Arkham Knight twist, despite its predictability I thought it was interesting and handled well. And speaking of Batman, I really like Arkham Origins too, which a lot of people sh*t on.

 

* Jurassic Park: The Game - the Telltale game from 2011. It obviously helps that I've been a HUGE JP geek since my childhood, so I really got a kick out of seeing more of the original park and all the easter eggs, I enjoyed the story and characters (despite a pretty nonsensical, kind of OOC and forced betrayal that felt like "Oh crap we forgot to write a human villain! Eh, this guy will do"), and the dino action was great. 40 bucks was prooooobably a little too much for me to spend for a physical copy back when it came out, but eh, I still like it and do not regret owning it.

 

* Far Cry 2 - This was a big disappointment to me back when it came out, but I wound up loving FC3 so much that I decided to give 2 another chance, and it really grew on me. Yeah, it's repetitive, and the Africa setting wasn't quite as well-realized as it could have been (I would KILL for a remake that implements better faction mechanics and deadly wildlife), but they NAILED the atmosphere of being a gun for hire in a war-torn sh*thole of a country, having to make do with old crappy weaponry, and being unable to really trust anyone. And man is Africa pretty. I still need to beat this one.

 

* Call of Duty: World at War - I've always only been in it for the campaigns (they're cheap fun, as short and on-rails as they are after the earlier games), and for my money WaW is one of the very best and most atmospheric of the series. The Pacific Theater stuff was awesome (and how cool is it having Keifer Sutherland as your sarge?), but the Russian side of the campaign just blew me away. Storming the Reichstag and taking it over is one of my favorite video game moments ever, no joke. And oh my god, that soundtrack. People may have been disappointed by another WWII game after Modern Warfare, but I'm really glad more fans are realizing that WaW is a very good entry in its own right now that some time has passed.

Mafia City of Lost heaven. It was released during the time when GTA IIII became so popular that the opinion about this game was pretty much negative, especially, due to constant comparisons with Rockstar's title. It was far more realistic going against the mainstream conventions than GTA III and many people seemed to have trouble to get used to. Including the lack of "sufficient" amount of activities since the beautiful city was mainly used as a backdrop for the story. The developers were absolutely clear about their target audience but unlike the strong audience, popularity and success GTA III found when released ( despite Mafia 1's top notch quality across the board and critical accolades ), the Mafia, however failed to have the same luxury and long shelf life to keep selling consistently only to be forgotten and regarded highly by those few cult fans who knew the game was far ahead of its time.

Additionally, Mafia 1 was a PC exclusive title which was later ported ( and downgraded ) to the consoles, which is another reason why it didn't become so popular among the mainstream audience.

Do people really not like IV? I mean I think it's a hugely flawed game and the tone throughout is just a little too bleak (TLAD took this to the extreme) but it's a good game. Like V, it has massive flaws but when viewed on its own and not as a part of the franchise, it's an incredible game. It just gets a lot wrong.

 

--

 

Mad Max: A lot of people I know that played this didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as I did. Sure, it's repetitive, feels sparse and empty and can be quite a lonely experience, but anyone that has seen Mad Max 2 should know that that's exactly how that world should be. Charging around the final area in a fully-tricked out car feels excellent and the fighting mechanics were brutally solid. Love it.

 

Amazing Spider-Man (current gen consoles): While definitely not the best Spider-Man game it gets quite close to the feeling of the second PS2 game, which was f*cking amazing. If they toned down the need to constantly keep your public favour up, it could be the best. Really looking forward to the new one.

 

Skate 3: They dumbed down the game and souped up the graphics and put a lot of interesting new moves in. While it's not as close to playing a skate video as the first in the franchise, it's still a really strong game and gives you so much potential for awesome lines and spots. City wasn't great, but that's never been the game's strong point.

Gotten Mad Max a few months ago on PC. Been playing it quite alot ever since. Enjoying it big time and your brief explanation why the game is good is spot on. I'm taking my time though (I'm the kind of person who wants to go through every area with everything plundered/explored). Which means I have to take it easy and take breaks with this game (because yes, else it's way too repetetive).

 

It's the kind of game you should buy either at launch and take a course of a year to complete or buy as a bargain and also savor the experience. Overdoing just makes you hate the game for the wrong reasons.

 

 

I couldn't really say any games people generally 'hate' that I like. I think opinions overall are very mixed. But the latest one I still think most people bitch about just for the sake of bitching 'CUZ ITS EA':

 

Star Wars Battlefront:

Yes, multiplayer only pretty much BUT holy sh*t it did have co-op/singleplayer 'tutorials' that you could spend a couple of hours on already out of the box. Isn't it the point of having a worthwhile singleplayer experience that's fun/contributes to the game rather than a boring as f*ck and terribly executed singleplayer campaign?

 

Yes it is also true that you could debate that the game was 'meager' in content. But it's one of the very few games in ages to actually give FREE content. If you're not a overhyped idiot you could've gotten the game after a couple of months for a very cheap price and gotten more than your money's worth. Still, the game has enough content to keep a FPS gamer happy. Hell, it even has a very diverse array of gameplay modes (which is mostly lacking in FPS games).

 

No... don't. This is not Battlefront 3 and it never claimed to be. Stop f*cking stating this. Yes, cry all you want for EA having all the Star Wars game rights but that's how f*cking business go. They decided to make a NEW Battlefront game and thought that DICE was the perfect developer to do so. And they kinda succeeded very much at this task. Does this mean the game has no flaws? Absolutely not. But the bullsh*t people sprout that 'it's not a true Battlefront game and that's why it is terrible' is ignorant as f*ck.

 

Overall: Battlefront is a good game. The gameplay mechanics work, balancing after some time has worked out for the best. Nothing is blatantly OP'd now and everything has it's perks and downsides BUT I can also agree that the gameplay might get a little more depth. Heroes are very fun to play (though in my opinion could need some more work). Gameplay modes are very diverse and really fun to play. I guess there is a big top 3/4 gamemodes that most people stick to but overall all offer a very fun Star Wars way of new and old gamemodes. A good start for a new franchise and we can only hope they use this one as a proper stepping stone to more Battlefront and/or Star Wars games.

Apart from GTA IV (if the game can be even classified as not liked) it's definitely:

 

- Duke Nukem Forever, which is considered as bad as a Satan's butthole, but it was solid FPS after all. Sure it was made for 14 years, some textures were atrocious, the initial loading time was unbearable and some levels were dragged a bit too much (Casino for example), but the amount of various features, like vehicles and a lot of mini games really turned it into a pleasant experience for me. And I bet that the game wouldn't be even hated that much if it wasn't for the peer pressure, because it was definitely much better than Ride to Hell: Retribution, with which it was mentioned on many lists.

 

- Saints Row: The Third - I must admit that despite the my initial opinion, which wasn't positive, I really found this game to be funny and pleasant. The gameplay, nice side missions and good soundtrack really made me like it to a point I've completed everything there was to do (including all challenges) with a idea to do it again soon.

If there's one thing I learned from this topic, it's that GTAIV isn't disliked nearly as much as y'all claim it to be seein how it's listed in 90% of the posts here.

Maybe not on this forum (which is nice to see) but overall its definitely a divisive game that got a lot of hate when it was released.

 

There is a reason GTA V is basically the opposite of it in most ways.

 

Anyway on topic:

 

Mass Effect 3: Yeah the endings and final mission sucked but apart from that the game was still outstanding. The war atmosphere was great, loved the bleaker tone. The Tuchanka and Rannoch arcs are well handled and choices mattered there, the characters felt more real than ever before and the gameplay was fantastic.

 

Mafia 2: Not a fan of the direction the third title seems to be going. Mafia 2 was overall great and did its own thing, now the series is basically just becoming another lame GTA clone and generic open world game (like we ever needed more of those).

 

GTA IV (of course): Just too bold for this series I guess. It was already good before but GTA IV brought it to new heights for me, don't think there will be a GTA game like it again. Still get chills when I hear the main theme, lol.

 

Dragon Age 2: Not going to deny, its a flawed game. But I still appreciated that it tried to go away from the typical Bioware formula and overall enjoyed it. We got a more human protag who wasn't basically God, a smaller scale story instead of a generic saving the world plot etc. a shame that EA rushed it. DA:I was much worse & generic and was somehow well received, wtf?

You should have visited Czech Republic circa ten years ago. Stating that GTA is better than Mafia was the biggest and easiest flame bait and the second game was the most hyped thing in existence. I'm talking The Phantom Menace/The Force Awakens levels of hype, that's how insane it was. People have calmed down since, but the first game is still a national treasure.

 

Touching upon that hype; that's one of the biggest reasons why I don't really like II that much. Even though I didn't expect the Greatest Thing EverTM, it was hard not to feel let down after the years of mass anticipation of a worthy Mafia sequel. The game is still clearly a net positive for me, but it's one of those unlucky cases when "What Could/Should Have Been" just completely overshadows the fine game that did get released. I know this is all my own fault though. Never buy into the hype. Never.

 

Now that I'm thinking about it though, there are some striking similarities between Mafia II and MGSV. Hyped for years, a troubled, long development, alienated developers unable to fulfill their overambitious vision, intrusive publisher, a ton of cut content and a chopped up story...

1) GTA IV: People didn't like the seriousness of the game, but I did. I loved the story so much that I've replayed it over 20 times.

 

2) The Division: Sure, the game isn't what it was advertised but it's better when you play with friends. I can see why the causal gamer wouldn't like the dark zone though. Too much gank squads.

 

3) Saints Row 4: No one liked the futuristic / simulated feel but I loved seeing virtual Steelport from SR3 and I loved how they implemented things from the previous saints row.

 

4) SR2: Again, people said the game was too much like GTA but it was better than GTA.

Beyond Two Souls - my overall most favorite game, even though the plot is a bit silly and I'm not a fan of 'save the world' plots/endings in general. It works both as a package as well as in the details. How many games get you to know a child soldier? Or let you play as a kid that burns down a house? I also love the gameplay and the fact that there's no mission failure anywhere. You just get a different outcome based on what you do.

 

Kane & Lynch - while it seems to be quite popular on this forum and it's one of the top games for a lot of people, overall it just wasn't received well.

 

Crysis - of course it's not a hated game, but it's a shame that everyone was so focused only on the technical aspects and HW reqs at the time and nobody talked about the gameplay. It had the most realistic feeling from the forest/jungle combat this side of ArmA, you could completely tear down sheds just for fun if you felt like it and the aliens and sci-fi elements overall were superb.

 

AssCreed 1 - I still can't get over the fact that this game has received almost no recognition for its unique story, setting and meta gameplay.

 

I won't mention GTA IV because I don't feel like it's hated all that much. It's very polarizing at most. It just seems that outside of this forums, critics are the only ones that have ever talked about the game.

 

Call Of Juarez: The Cartel.

From what I remember, most of the criticism about The Cartel was about things completely unrelated to the gameplay, such as that the game is racist for inaccurate depiction of the events (see

) and yea, for abandoning the wild west theme. Edited by RogerWho
