Tell of them.

The intro to Half Life is apparently a groundbreaking masterpiece of videogame direction and scene setting. I found it enthusiasm-crushingly slow and tedious.

I much prefer the DualShock 4 to the Xbox One controller and don't understand the hate for the former. This is despite preferring the transforming 360 pad to the DS3 and acknowledging how badly the dualshock 3 has aged.

Breath of the Wild plays great in terms of travel and combat but badly needs more story than just a small handful of short cutscenes.

Donkey Kong Country controls friggin weird. I don't know if it's the size of the sprites or hitboxes, or maybe the time of animations or something but for me at least it controls like I'm wearing mittens.

Ted Woolsey's involvement in a game was not automatically a bad thing. See: Chrono Trigger

Resident Evil 4 is great game, great action game but it is not great Resident Evil game.

I think Gears of War isn't epic as people made it out

I like Sonic Unleashed on Xbox 360.

Okami is a better 'Zelda' game than all the Zelda games.

Oh crap I can feel the rage building within me already. To be honest I preferred Kinopio’s unpopular positive gaming opinions thread which I now can’t find. Here are some unpopular negative opinions I guess:


There are more than enough good and great games on Nintendo machines for any one person’s life without invoking other machines (NB not the case last generation) (does demand that you like Nintendo and indie games).

The following classic games have aged poorly and no longer stand up: Super Mario Bros., Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening, Super Mario 64, Pokémon RBY, Chrono Trigger, ICO.

The Gen. 1 Pokémon designs are no better than many of the others, and the starters in particular are weak. Charizard in particular is bobbins.

Shadow of the Colossus (oh hai OR) has worse controls than Kid Icarus Uprising.

Handheld gaming is better than big screen gaming. Differences in immersion are minimal and extra grunt < being able to game on the train/loo.

There’s no need for any further increasing realism in game graphics. Developers should be looking more into art styles for their visuals, while power could be spent better reducing loading times, making bigger and more filled worlds, and improving AI among other things.

The OP should’ve bumped this thread instead of making a new one. :P

Nonsense - handheld gaming is a lot more immersive!

The Last of Us is an average 'game' at best.

I swear we've had this exact thread recently and I stick by my previous statement that DmC is the best Devil May Cry alongside 5.

The Atari ST was better than any Nintendo console.

About the only opinion I've really agreed with so far is from the OP.

I presume the smiling .gif means you agree with everything in the post CD?

I recognise that I’m part of the problem, but - same. This is why I preferred the positive version of the thread - but I now can’t find it!

EDIT: Happy thread!

I've never really rated the Half Life series and Dark Souls isn't that hard.

The combat in Dark Souls is average at best, some of it is straight up bad. Telling story through weapon descriptions is also really bad.

BOTW is great but just removing map symbols didn't stately make the 'discovery' of a camp any better. Most of it is standard open weeks affair.

2D Sonic was always bad. The game plays itself when moving fast and is just gooseberry fool when played slowly.
