What hyped/popular games did you just NOT like? - Page 11

post #101 of 121
The Good :

Left 4 Dead: Honestly one of my favorite games this year, so much potential

All X-Com series: Yes a very old DOS game(s) but it still is a very unique game that in my opinion still hasent been topped.

The Bad :

Far Cry 2 : Played for 20 hrs, got old after 2 hrs.

The Ugly :

World of Warhammer Online : Pretty much another WoW. PvP based but the PvP is about as fun as filing down grandmas bunions.

Spore : Wow what a **** up, Remake plz.

DOTA!

But 90% of people hate it because it has a nasty learning curve. And we cant forget 95% of games have leavers.

Spore - Reallly HORRIBLE i hated it with a passion!

Far Cry 2 - Very repetitive and gets old real fast (and the DRM on it was baaad)

Counterstrike 1.6 and Source - Seriously ***, this is so damn hard I work for like 30 mins to get a kill just to feel as though I achieved something (but then again i've only played for like a few weeks lol)

All the Halo games

and GTA IV for sure

Warcraft III is good on its own, but yea, custom maps like DotA and tower defense type games are like having totally new games in a single package. Definitely keeps the replay value up. I still turn to my trust WC3 regularly.

I want to play Spore now and see what all the anti-hype is about.

Oblivion - After playing Morrowind I upgraded my rig just to be able to play Oblivion and let me say it was a waste of an upgrade.

Bioshock - Just couldn't get into it. Played it for about 3 hours, but just didn't like it.

Far Cry 2 - Do I really need to explain this one?

Halo 2 - They changed too much from Halo (if it isn't broke then don't fix it), plus the ending...

Spore - Our AI prof was plugging previews of this game in class back then. Ha!

Dead Space - TBH I've played lots of horror games and only the Penumbra series have ever made me feel tense and frightened of what's "out there." A game doesn't need gore to be frightening. But I *** to guro porn so I guess this isn't fair

Far Cry 2 - Starts awesome, then after an hour I feel like I've experienced everything it had to offer.

DotA - Tried it, didn't like it. I can't understand why all my friends are all over this game.

GTA series - This gets old really fast.

Every RTS ever - Just not my kind of game. I didn't like SoaSE either.

Every MMO ever - I don't like "da grindan gaem"

Every JRPG ever - For all its greatness, the FF series isn't really that great. NetHack > *

Every PopCap/casual game ever - Boring and repetitive. With the exception of Frets on Fire, Osu! and DTXMania of course.
