Unpopular gaming opinions SECOND IMPACT

specsspecs Excuse me, princess!Joined: Posts: 6,380 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
Don't know who made the first thread, but I'm making the second. Post your opinions about games that you're sure others will find unpopular. I'll begin:

- Metal Slug 3 is a PIECE OF SHIT. It's like Sonic CD: super-freaking-bad, yet everyone loves it for some reason. It has multiple paths. WHOOPDEE FREAKIN' DOO. I can fall asleep playing this bore-fest. It's tedious, and started the "let's make the series Battletoads-cheap" trend that 4 and 5 continued. 3 is better than 4 or 5, but that's it.

- Metal Slug 6 is WAAAAAY better than the rest of the series. That's right. You heard me. Unique character properties, good pacing in the levels, good bosses, all around fun. Way better than shitty, shitty 3. And a little better than 2 or X. Plus, it's the only game in the Anthology that doesn't lag so bad it's nearly unplayable. Though it still lags a little.

- Yes, the Anthology lags, at least on PS2. If you aren't noticing it, TRY LOOKING HARDER because it's there.

- Sonic CD sucks. I say this like once every three months. But it's true. It's the second-worst Sonic game ever made, right behind Sonic 360/PS3. Sonic Team can suck my balls. If I ever get the money I'm buying Sonic. As in the rights to the characters and games. So I can make one that doesn't fucking suck.

- To paraphrase Viscant: Sonic 2 had it right. We've been going in the wrong direction ever since. Add this: Sonic 2 wasn't made entirely by Sonic Team. That should tell you something right there.

- Final Fantasy 7 was overrated, as was 12.

- Square-Enix is shit.

- Vyse is the best main character in an RPG ever. Ever. Cloud doesn't even come close.

- A fun and competitive 3D Street Fighter is possible. Just because all current attempts have sucked doesn't mean they should stop trying.

- No, people aren't saying your favorite game is a piece of shit just because they suck at it. Chances are if 95% of the world says it is a piece of shit, it's because it's a piece of shit. This is directed to you Sonic fanboys out there.

- Kirby Superstar was the SNES's best game. Yes, I've played Super Metroid, Yoshi's Island, Illusion of Gaia, and (in all likelihood) any other game you care to mention.

- Doom wasn't a corridor shooter. It was an arcade action twitch game that spawned corridor shooters. Doom plays nothing like what it preceded. That's why people still play it and make levels for it.

- Metroid Prime isn't a corridor shooter. It's an exploration-RPG game that just so happens to put you in a first-person perspective, using guns, in corridor-heavy environments.

- The Wiimote sucks. Except for WarioWare. Actually the Wii sucks in general. And I love every other Nintendo system I own.

- Ocarina of Time wasn't as good as Wind Waker. Yeah, I said it. Wind Waker's only blemish was the Triforce hunt.

- No game, past or present, has as cool a final boss battle as Wind Waker. Gears of War kinda-sorta comes close.

- Gears of War is 20 times better than any shitty Japanese game you care to mention.

- Shmups are, at their basest level, about memorization. I hope that shmups become more random and promote more reactivity instead of Dance Dance Revolution twitch. Geometry Wars is a move in the right direction. So was the meteor level in Gradius V.

- Astroboy is the best GBA title you've never played. It's by Treasure and is very Gunstar Super Heroes-ish. Find this game NOW.

- Double Dragon Advance is the second best GBA title you've never played. Give it five minutes and tell me it wasn't worth every penny, I dare you.

- Metal Gear sucks. I just care for the story. On the inverse, Snake is awesome and makes Smash Bros. more awesome just by being in it.

- The American Zelda cartoon was FUCKING GREAT regardless of what otaku Japanophiles believe. Cocky ass mercenary Link > never talks game Link.

- Captain N... was mostly shit. :rofl: But the good episodes were stellar. And yes, the same Link appears here, and other than some initial whining, he's as cool as ever.

- Pichu w/ goggles better be in Brawl.

- See that dude in my AV? That's Rei, the coolest Capcom character ever made. He got the shaft in the game he was in... so he better be the star of MvC3 :rofl: (Insert El Salvador reference here)

- Symphony of the Night was not the best Castlevania game.

- Super Castlevania 4 was better than SotN. /braces for impact

- Megaman X8 is the best X game. Ignore Gigavolt Man-o-War's stage, though. The rest of the game is pure sex.

    Super Castlevania is definitely the best. I agree. Symphony of the Night is a great game, but if there ain't a Belmont at the helm it ain't Castlevania proper.

    Also: Console FPS games all suck. All of them. Except Perfect Dark and GoldenEye.

    I strongly dislike Final Fantasy X. I never liked Final Fantasy 7. Or any Final Fantasy for that matter, what a shitty fucking series imo.

    Super Smash Brothers Melee is my favorite game of all time, and if I had to rate all the games ever made based on how good a game they are all-around (Replayability, enjoyment, etc) SSBM would be in the top 5. In a similar manner to MvC2, it kind of happened on accident, the end result was never intended from the viewpoint the makers made the game, but what happened was an endlessly replayable, fun, amazing game. I've played it since the day it came out and to this day I still can't get enough.

    N64 and Dreamcast were probably the 2 best systems ever, with SNES coming close behind. Xbox was a piece of shit, Xbox 360 is a piece of shit, PS3 doesn't have anything that remotely makes me want to pay that kind of money. PS1 and PS2 were great systems, PS3 needs to fucking keep up, and microsoft needs to die.

    FPS games need to fucking stop being made. It's old. It is much worse than sports games at this point, at least only EA is making the sports games... fucking 10 new FPS drop every week and they are all the same fucking game. I have nothing against a good fps being made, but that happens once every 5 years...

    Additionally, FPS on consoles is a fucking dumb idea. Console controls are simply not good enough when compared to a PC, there is no upside to the controller. Keyboard/mouse always better imo.

    I'm the only person on the planet that is disappointed Blizzard is making starcraft 2. I'd honestly rather see Diablo 3, Warcraft 4, or even World of Starcraft. Incoming flames.

    People need to shut the fuck up about dota. Newsflash: Dota is not hard to play, it's not complicated, it doesn't require personal skill (It's 100% teamwork and positioning, and character choice), and is not a better game than WC3. People who buy WC3 for dota make me sick, that game has literally its own entire game universe inside it (1v1, 2v2, FFA are all very different game types, there is an entire world of maps people make, you can make your own, etc) and all anyone ever does is dota. Its fucking stupid.

    Skies of Arcadia is much better than whatever RPG you like. Vyse is the fucking man. Raphael is the best character dressed like a frenchmen to ever see the screen of a television. The game is more unique, more interesting, and better than anything else, ever, in the rpg genre.

    Rant mode off.

    - Square-Enix is shit.

    as much as i hate to say it, i agree with you on this. nothing but sequels remakes and spinoffs ever since this merger happened, and when the only signs of innovation comes from KINGDOM FUCKING HEARTS, then you know there's a problem.

    Some of my opinions

    -Gears of War is great, but has the WORST ONLINE PLAY EVER. everyone is in denial at just how fucking badly Epic botched this game online. and im not even talking about glitches, when the game is just unable to synch properly in between people you know you fucked up. despite that i still like playing it

    -as great a game as 3rd strike is, the game boils down to who has the best supers and most managable meters to work with them and thats end of story.

    Castlevania IV isn't the best CV game on the SNES, nevermind even close to the best in the series. Yeah I said it, Dracula X SNES is better than CVIV. "Hi I'm big bad Dracula, let me spam this final battle with more chicken life-ups than you can find in the rest of the game combined!" CVIV has clunky action and lame difficulty, only advantage I'd give IV is in music (IV and Lament on PS2 have the best soundtracks in the series, at least imo)..

    And saying MS3 is "a piece of shit" is unfair, even if the gameplay isn't polished (and I agree, MSX is the peak of the first four games), MS3 gets credit for being the best looking 2D game ever.

    I'll add more later..

    - Megaman X8 is the best X game. Ignore Gigavolt Man-o-War's stage, though. The rest of the game is pure sex.

    This is near blasphemy. Every knows X1 is the king, and X4 is the prince. However, X8 is the best 2-D Megaman game since X4, so I'll let you off with a warning this time.
    Man-o-War's stage isn't the only stage that sucks. Yeti's, Pandamonium's, Rooster's, Sigma Palace, Jakob's Elevator all also seriously suck. It's amazing that the game is still as good as it is despite half the levels being total ass, and the fights against Vile and Sigma being total jokes.
    I strongly dislike Final Fantasy X. I never liked Final Fantasy 7. Or any Final Fantasy for that matter, what a shitty fucking series imo.

    You're lucky that you decided to rant against FPS, so I don't have to destroy you over this.

    Also, Skies of Arcadia is somewhat overrated.
    The game WOULD be one of the best RPGs of all-time easily if:
    1) The game wasn't so damn easy
    2) The battle system was a lot better
    3) Ramirez wasn't such a lackluster, poor excuse for a main villain

    Also, as a Gamestop employee for over 2 years now, I have come to hate the casual American gamer more than life itself.
    I am SOOOOOOOO fucking tired of no one I meet having any interest at all in any game that:
    a) Doesn't feature shooting tedious hordes of enemies as the main aspect of gameplay
    b) Doesn't have cars/vehicles
    c) Isn't any kind of sports game INCLUDING huntin', fishin', and "rasslin"
    d) Doesn't have the words "War" or "Kombat" in the title

    If it wasn't for the fucking Nintendo fanboys, I wouldn't sell anything else at all besides games which feature a,b,c,d or some kind of combination thereof.

    Which is also part of why Sonic Rush was the only recent Sonic game that didn't suck ass (apparently Dimps, the Rumble Fish guys, did most of the work).

    EDIT: Scratch that, more like all of the work.

    Wind Waker was indeed better in many ways than OoT. And the final boss fight with Gannondorf is just as good as the final boss fight with Ganon.

    I can't stand going backward to play SF2: WW. I'm sorry but something deep inside me hates to go backward beyond ST. I can play Turbo, but I won't enjoy it as much as kicking ass or getting my ass kicked in ST. (Raises Spartan shield for raining arrows)

    Megaman X series is the best series in all of the various Megaman series. Legends comes close but MMX is just classic.

    CvS2: EO on GC is playable. Not good playable and no where near arcade playable, but it can be played to some enjoyment.


    -FF7 overated, Kefka>Sephiroth anyday,
    -Dracula X > barely better than SOTN. SOTN is fun but too easy,period.

    -Uniracers is the best SNES racing game. Pro Skater aint got nothing on it, neither does Mario Kart.

    Tony Hawk games are fun. At least 3/4 were, Tony Hawk 4 is one of the games I've spent the most time playing outside of Skies of Arcadia, Lufia 2 and SSB:M, my holy trifecta of console goodness.

    Lufia 2 is also better than whatever rpg you like, as well as whatever adventure game you like, at the same time.
    Also, Skies of Arcadia is somewhat overrated.
    The game WOULD be one of the best RPGs of all-time easily if:
    1) The game wasn't so damn easy
    2) The battle system was a lot better
    3) Ramirez wasn't such a lackluster, poor excuse for a main villain

    1) Skies of Arcadia with a hard mode available after you win would be fucking perfect.
    2) I like the battle system fine, there's just some broken skills (Aika delta force, Vyse Skull Shield, Fina superheal lol)
    3) Yeah he did kind of blow, but he served his purpose. The main characters more than make up for him.

    Even if Lufia 2 IS so much better than games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Suikoden 2 (which it isn't), it doesn't automatically make them "shitty".

    FFT isn't an rpg, it's an SRPG. And really, the only SRPG worth mentioning until Disgaea came out.

    I say shitty because every time I bring up rpgs the same games get brought up and I think all of them suck. Especially final fantasy. I'm entitled my opinion, especially since I've been playing video games, especially rpgs for 10+ years and have played everything people would bring up. Fuck FF7. Fuck most of the Tales games. Especially Abyss, wow that storyline was so fucking stupid I think I puked a little. Symphonia was fun, but it wasn't groundbreaking, certainly not enough to justify everyones cockriding it. And I say it again, fuck final fantasy, those games are fucking terrible and have 0 replay value, the 'value' of those games is supposedly in the storyline, and yet a 20 hour game has less story than a 2 hour movie, et tu Square-Enix.

    Lufia 2 was innovative, amazing and fun. It did some shit that NO ONE has yet to match, but many have tried, such as the ancient dungeon. Necronomigon in Tales of Symphonia tried and failed. Item Worlds in Disgaea were good, but nowhere near as good as the ancient dungeon, and disgaes2's item worlds sucked ass. I still load up my rom and play the Ancient Dungeon when I'm bored and I've owned that game ten-fucking-years. It's still fun. No other rpg stays fun that long, shit most of them are boring to replay once. Especially final fantasy, which was never fun to begin with, for me anyway. I've been playing Lufia 2 longer than I've been jacking off. That's how old the fucking game is. Still amazingly fun.

    Disagree all you like, thats what this thread is for.

    I've always liked Lufia 2 more than SNES Zelda and Final Fantasy combined, to me it's what would happen if the games were melded into one.
    Also, as a Gamestop employee for over 2 years now, I have come to hate the casual American gamer more than life itself.

    d) Doesn't have the words "War" or "Kombat" in the title
    This shit pisses me off too, games suck nowadays because gaming is becoming mainstream, and with anything mainstream caders to fucking stupid people. There are very few good games being produced that aren't coming out of Nintendo, who consistently make their own amazing games.

    Every time I see 50 cent bulletproof on a shelf I feel like my childhood died.


    While I'm at it, FUCK STAR OCEAN 3. WHY THE FUCK DID ANYONE FIND THAT GAME FUN. Jesus, I had so many people tell me that game was the best rpg ever, so I tolerated 10 hours of that shit. Worst dungeon design I have EVER seen, truly abominable. Horse-shit terrible, and the game is beyond over-complicated,

    halo sucks
    This only seems to be "unpopular gaming opinion" in real life. haha, this thread is old as hell. ..but what if I pooted on yo' burger? On the internet, however, it is quite popular. One mention of Halo on any thread on any forum prompts the next 3000 people to post about how much it sucks. At least on the internet, saying "halo sucks" is about the same as saying "Scrappy Doo was annoying.". It's hardly an unpopular opinion at this point.

    Most of this will be rehashed stuff, since revisiting the hate is always fun....especially when I'm passionate about it...

    1. Turn-based RPG = automatically terrible. It could be the greatest story in the world, with the most interesting characters ever to appear in a work of fiction. The fact that it is turn-based immediately kills off my interest, because it is impossible for me to ever consider that "fun". It doesn't even count as "gameplay" to me. It's a *mildly* interactive movie. Where is the fun if I'm merely suggesting what my characters will do via menu screens? Where's the fun if timing of attacks, distancing, correct execution of the moves, and strategic position doesn't matter? Where is the fun if I'm occasionally selecting something from a menu, and watching the game basically play itself?

    Then you have this silly ass battle visual; the party meets a group of monsters in a forest. They all stand in perfect formation with a big space between the groups....one dude jumps out and SLASHES THE AIR....then he jumps back in formation. A monster comes out and does the same. You've got to be kidding me with this. It's like some alternate world I've fallen into, where a sizeable majority of gamers out there are playing a practical joke on me that's gone on since the 80s....and the whole point was to pretend to like this nonsense just to drive me crazy trying to analyze how this surprising majority of people consider this garbage "fun".

    -I don't care for rumble feature in a controller. It was used brilliantly just one time so far, at least out of things I've played...and that was the Mantis fight in Metal Gear Solid. Every other time it's just not been that necessary for me....in some games it's actually annoying, and I'll turn it off.

    -Inverted directional control is just silly, imo. The worst is when a dickbag bitchass developer makes the game inverted control by default....but fails to include an option to change it to NORMAL shit....i.e. the first Otogi. That would've been such a great game....if I wasn't struggling with some uncomfortable, completely unnatural bullshit ass "push up to look down" retardation. This isn't a goddamn airplane simulator. I'm controlling a demon that's slashing everything to pieces....up should mean up, shit.

    -In terms of design, classic Megaman and crew are far more appealing than anything I've seen from the Megaman X series. Simple is usually better in the world of art/design, and this is a good example of that. Most of the Megaman X characters look like they are from an alternate universe, where all of Dr. Light and Dr. Wily's robot creations are actually flaming homosexuals fresh from one of those parades they have on occasion. It's Megaman: GLAAD Edition.

    -I prefer controller to keyboard/mouse. I tried keyboard/mouse for awhile....but it's just not comfortable for me. I can adapt to nearly any controller, but keyboard/mouse as a game controller is just crap, imo. I'd rather not cramp my hands regularly just for the benefit of better aim in a genre that has been stale for quite a while.

    oooh and here's the big one: Console > PC gaming. Shit, that's a bomb there....a real Pandora's Box of an issue that never ends well when it sparks discussion. Convenience, stability, and price make for a hell of a combo.

    -I enjoyed the hell out of Sonic Heroes. It was certainly more fun and entertaining than either "Adventure" game.

    -I don't think a game's insane difficulty automatically makes it "cool" or "badass"...it really just means it's a terrible and flawed game. Battletoads, for instance. It's obviously bad game design if you've made things so difficult, that the fun factor suffers greatly as a result. Bart Simpson vs. the Space Mutants is another one....with an impossible jump at the museum level that doesn't even make sense in a number of ways(why/how is a tyrannosaur standing in a bottomless pit? why is there a bottomless pit in a goddamn museum? WHY does Bart fall right THROUGH the damn tyrannosaur if he lands anywhere other than one small part of the thing's head/face? Does this tyrannosaur have phasing superpowers like the Matrix Twins, but he only used it on 97% of his body, leaving the head solid? Why?)

    ---
    Going from SF2:Turbo/CRAZY Editions.....to regular ol' "Super" SF2....ohhhh that was such a big step back, imo. Super SF2 was slow as Christmas by comparison. Sorry, but I really can't go backwards when it comes to gameplay speed. You can't take me to something like 7star speed on the SNES version with all kinds of crazy shit going on....back to REGULAR SF2 speed. Nope, that's not acceptable to me. SF Alpha was even SLOWER. I was disgusted, and didn't even finish the match(which was against the computer of course, since nobody here gave a shit about SF anymore by the time Alpha came out.) Once again; this thread is so damn old, man... why are you looking at it again?

    I don't have a problem with anyone whose favorite RPG is Lufia 2, and like it better than anything else.
    I don't even have a problem with anyone saying it's better than every other RPG.

    But when you automatically call every other RPG shitty, well...
    And by the way, there's no real distinction between SRPG and RPG other than battle systems.
    Discussion of FF7 is pointless. You don't have to bring it up 500 times in your argument. YES the game is looked at as the holy grail. YES the game is overrated.
    Perhaps you'd like to tell me why each of THESE games are "shitty":

    I really don't understand why everyone wants a Diablo 3. All the developers of Diablo 2 left Blizzard,split up into two companies, and are now developing games(well, one is...) . So why would anyone want Diablo 3 with non of the original developers in it?

    Halo is better off as a movie then video game.

    Stop the production on platformer mega man (X, zx, Zero, WHATEVER), and start the production of Mega man legends 3.

    Grand Theft Auto series was good, but hardly great.

    -Ocarina of Time was so mind-numbingly boring, with so many endless cutscenes, and action that was so generic and unoriginal, I almost want to label the game "bad".

    Did you play the game in its prime, or 5 years after?
    I really don't understand why everyone wants a Diablo 3.
    Because Diablo 2 entertained me for something like 3 years? I don't care if the original guys left, Blizzard has half the people in the video game industry under its thumb, you think they can't make a new diablo?

    edit- Final Fantasy 6 is the only game in the series I like, and I don't even consider it lumped in with the rest. Most of the predecessors sucked (4 especially) and ALL that came after sucked, more and more until finally the pinnacle of fucking suck peaked with FFX. I stopped playing them after that. Never got around to FF9, was too bored to play through all of it, maybe it got good at some point.

    No one has ever made a racing game as fun as F Zero for the SNES and I don't think they ever will. Modern day racing games completely miss the point. F Zero for the cube wasn't bad, but the glitches fucked it up, Mario Kart 64 and Podracer deserve honorable mention.

    Regarding CV IV being better than SOTN:

    Meh, well, I dunno. Depends a lot if you're a purist or not. If you defend the "old school" style of playing CV (linear levels that take place through several stages), then yeah, CV IV is the epitome of such genre. One cannot deny the graphic richness and the amazing music quality for a first-generation SNES game. However, I still can't shake off the fact that it plays EXACTLY like the CV games before it (and even then I believe CV III brought a lot more to the table than CV IV). CV IV only had Simon being able to whip in 8 different directions...um, yay? Basically, yes, CV IV is a game that is honed to near-perfection, but once you break it down, you'll see that is really just old school CV with pretty graphics.

    Now, I will still consider SOTN the best of the series since, well, it pretty much spawned all the other "Metroidvania" CVs we see now on the GBA/DS. Now this may or may not be your cup of tea, but SOTN definetly achieves legend status for the sole fact that it brought the 2D genre to a new level in a world where everybody was hopping on the 3D bandwagon like it was Paris Hilton in a spring break rave. Much kudos to Konami for that.

    Regarding Wind Waker being better than OOT:

    Shit, what? One can argue about the innovation that Wind Waker brought with the graphics style and what not, but I can only see Wind Waker in one simple sight: Waterworld Link. Seriously, spending 40 minutes on a fuckin' boat to get to randomly-scattered islands gets BORING and there is not enough dungeons to actually spike my interest. Sure, the final levels get intense, but that won't make up for the 20 hours of boredom I spent before that.

    Now, OOT...THAT game was the shit. It single-handedly inspired me to buy a N64. Basically it was the original Zelda formula revamped to a whole new level. Hell, the sheer size of it was just overwhelming. Adult Link was also pimp as fuck. All dungeons were a tour-de-force in their own right (yes, including that dreaded Water Dungeon), and kept you at your toes at all times. Add some interesting mini-games in there, and that's a game for the ages!

    (In fact, I would also like to rate LTTP higher than Wind Waker, thank you very much)

    I'm of those who believe LTTP was much better than OoT.

    I agree so much.

    Twilight Princess is awful. I said it. There's so much to cellect between the actual story events, that you forget why the heck you were on a quest in the first place. THe dungeons are too long and the boss fights are too short. Midna is as annoying as Navi, and the Wiimote is just a gimmick.

    On another note, Ocarina of time would be better than LttP if Navi was nowhere NEAR it. "Hey! Listen!" STFU fairy.

    Chrono Trigger is the greatest RPG of all time. FF7 is fanboy bullshit.

    The 360 version of Guitar hero Sucks solely because of the Xplorer guitar

    The PS2 version of Guitar Hero sucks solely because I want to play more songs but I need to wait for the 80's pack...

    Final Fantasy X was pretty good, X-2 was not. XII on the other hand, which is often misconcieved as "X-2" has a really interesting battle system... the plot just gets a little confused.

    Halo 2 on Xbox live was fun as long as you played with good players.

    Dead or Alive has more value than just breasts.

    Metal Gear Solid 3 was good. Metal Gear Solid 1 was interesting. Metal Gear solid 2 was neither good/ nor interesting, but it had a Katana and a gender confused transvestite, so it kinda sucked, kinda didn't?

    Dragonball Z Budokai is fun

    Guilty Gear is one of the best fighters around.

    Kingdom Hearts 2 had a good story,

    Golden Sun 1 and 2 are quite possibly the greatest rpgs of the 21st century.

    Tony Hawk's Underground was the best in the series. Tony Hawk's project 8 is also the best in the series, because its just the first THUG, with a different camera angle.

    There is nothing innovative about Grand THeft Auto. Period. IT'S THE SAME GAME. GO BUY SOMETHING YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED BEFORE.

    Soul Caliber 3's Ninja is the greatest character EVER.

    Ninja Gaiden for Xbox can be won with a single move.

    Ninja Gaiden Black takes that move, completely rapes it, and then offers you an alternative.

    And Finally,
    after Ikaruga, they should have stopped producing Shmups, because that game is the best.

    Agree. Ikaruga destroys anything else I've played in the genre. I still haven't beat the fifth level without using a continue, god damn that game is fucking hard. And so much fun.

    But thats the thing though. Blizzard never had any hands in the actual production or development of Diablo 2, Blizzard North did that and Blizzard North was just a no-name company BLizzard bought out. BLizzard North did all the work and Blizzard just published it. If you want a Diablo 3, i would recommand Hellgate London as it is often dubbed "The Spiritual sequel of Diablo" since it is made by the same development team that left BLizzard north.

    You're not understanding me, Blizzard could easily make a new Age of Empires if they got the rights, and it would be better than the previous ones. They are the gods of the video game world, every game with blizzards name attached to it has been a downright amazing game (WoW is an amazing game until you get to raiding, and even then it's really fun if you don't play with morons, which everyone has to, thats the problem with MMOs), and the best pc game of the year by far. Most of them entertain people for years. It doesn't matter if japanese people made diablo 2, blizzard owns the rights and they could make diablo 3, and make it own.


    I still think Warcraft 3 overall is a better game than Starcraft.

    Hmm, lesse.

    I never liked Kingdom Hearts 1...mainly because it was weird for me to get the hang of the game, but Kingdom Hearts 2 was pretty awesome.

    I like FF7, but I hated FF9, mainly because I thought FF9 was just...I don't know. It had a really "old" feel to it and I just didn't like it.
    FFX was really good when it first came out, I loved it, but then when I bought FF12, beat FF12, then went back to FFX, I was like "wow...FFX fails on everything...especially on camera movement."
    No manual camera movement option in games - Fail.

    I also did not like Phantasy Star Online...at all. I thought it was boring as shit. My friend was like "Yo dood! You gotta try this out!!" I was interested for about an hour, then I was like "Wait...we've been doing the exact same thing for the last hour now...is this what you usually do?" and he starts naming things you can do and i'm like "uh huh..."


    Legend of Dragoon at it's time - Over rated, imo. The whole game just annoyed me, not to mention the whole combo with the buttons thing was just a little stupid because the monsters would die very fast, even without the combos.

    Legend of Legaia - If you have not played this game, you really should. It's an old RPG, but I loved it to death. Sure, the game had shitty graphics, but it was good at the time. The story line was great and i'm surprised there was hate to it when I went on messageboards asking about side quests.


    People need to shut the fuck up about dota. Newsflash: Dota is not hard to play, it's not complicated, it doesn't require personal skill (It's 100% teamwork and positioning, and character choice), and is not a better game than WC3. People who buy WC3 for dota make me sick, that game has literally its own entire game universe inside it (1v1, 2v2, FFA are all very different game types, there is an entire world of maps people make, you can make your own, etc) and all anyone ever does is dota. Its fucking stupid.

    Amen, yo. Amen.


    WoW - Ok, I admit, I was addicted. Who wasn't? I played for hours and hours on end just trying to get to level 60 as fast as I could so I could get my blues (rofl, this was WAYYY before the time of epics...like, 1 epic item, like a NightSlayer belt, made you god...) and when I finally reached level 60, I was like "All right, i'm gonna get all my blues, then start doing MC!!"...yeah, well...when I did countless runs on UBRS and did one MC run on another account on Shaman, I was like "ok...SERIOUSLY? SERIOUSLY?! This is MC? What the hell is so great about? This crap is boring as hell." I quit shortly after that, and my friends who still play it wonder why the hell they're still playing it.
    I have a fever. And the only RX, is more Reflector.

    Metal Slug 3 is a PIECE OF SHIT. It's like Sonic CD: super-freaking-bad, yet everyone loves it for some reason.

    - Sonic CD sucks. I say this like once every three months. But it's true. It's the second-worst Sonic game ever made, right behind Sonic 360/PS3. Sonic Team can suck my balls. If I ever get the money I'm buying Sonic. As in the rights to the characters and games. So I can make one that doesn't fucking suck.

    - No, people aren't saying your favorite game is a piece of shit just because they suck at it. Chances are if 95% of the world says it is a piece of shit, it's because it's a piece of shit. This is directed to you Sonic fanboys out there.
    3 hit combo! You just took out 90 percent of my bar, man. Seriously.

    Anyway, I am glad at least some people see that Sonic CD is crap. I'm a pretty big fan of Sonic and even I say its horrible (and I am not just talking about for a sonic game). Also happy you gun down Sonic 06 right along with it. Good show man. Good fucking show.

    But then I got to your attack that really damaged me, damn good combo finisher, this one actually struck me. Both the 95% of people saying one of my games is shit and then directing it at Sonic fans. Dead on execution... dead on. I play Sonic the Fighters and I enjoy the hell out of the game. I really don't understand what is bad about it.

    As for Wind Waker being better than OoT. Are you serious? I mean god damn. OoT was huge and boring and wasn't fun at all and Wind Waker was an enjoyable experience with beautiful scenery, a wonderful story and much better levels and bosses. Serious! How the heck could you like a game like that more than a highly overrated game like OoT. I mean GODDAMN! ~~~On a more serious note. I liked Majora's Mask far more than any of the other 3d zeldas. Followed closely of coarse by Wind Waker.

    As for Pichu with goggles in Brawl. Hell yes, and he's gonna fight with some hoes with machine guns. Pichu is motherfucking pimped out now.

    As for the Wiimote sucks. I disagree with you there man. I have been loving this thing. I love how it works with Wii Sports, and I love how it works Sonic Secret Rings (wtf I love a recent Sonic game?). Seriously the Wiimote has a lot of potential except the developers are really lazying on out on us. I'm hoping that a year from now we will be getting some really good shit out of the wiimote.
    ---
    Now I throw more of my crazy ideas out there.

    - Billy Hatcher was a great game and deserves a sequel. This time without shitty music.

    - Sonic Adventure 2 sucked. I don't care what people say. This is one of the lowest things of Sonic I saw. People complain about Sonic Heroes when they had this shit before it? I just don't understand.

    - I like 3S version B better. Seriously.

    - Sonic the Fighters is one of the best Sonic games. I think it is actually a fun fighting game and I find myself playing it quite a lot and have fun whenever I do.

    - FF9 was better than FF7. FF10 was retarded.

    - Shenmue is better than Twilight Princess and OoT combine.

    - Uranus sucks in Bloody Roar Primal Fury. Yugo is retardedly broken.

    - Fox is not the hardest character to play as in SSBM. I don't care about the shit he can potentially do, he is easy to win with without doing much work.

    T

    I somewhat agree with the first 2, both series are vastly underrated.
    As for Tony Hawk, I stopped after 3, every thing since then seems uninteresting, boring and less innovative. But I guess I chalk that up to not really giving the others a chance.

    Super Smash Brothers Melee is harder to play than any 2d fighter with the possible exception of MvC2. Definitely much harder than 3rd strike, and as far as I can tell Guilty Gear. SSBM is by far more fun than these games as well.

    This only seems to be "unpopular gaming opinion" in real life. On the internet, however, it is quite popular. One mention of Halo on any thread on any forum prompts the next 3000 people to post about how much it sucks. At least on the internet, saying "halo sucks" is about the same as saying "Scrappy Doo was annoying.". It's hardly an unpopular opinion at this point.

    maybe on this board

    I hate the GTA series. Yes, All OF THEM. The games are so non-linear no one actually plays the game. People just drive around... What the?!? And when I find someone that actually did the missions, they cheated to finish them.

    And people should not use cheat codes until the second play through.

    I wish EA would just stop making games.
