Classic games that you hate?



  • Pretty much every sports game and driving game. I've tried numerous games, but I just find them more frustrating than fun. NBA Jam on Snes was decent. And all driving games Expect Burnout 3 and CTR (and some mario karts) are bad, if you ask me.
    Also, first Witcher had so frustrating Combat, that I didn't continue the game after tutorial, gladly it was somewhat fixed in Enhanced edition...

    Burnout Revenge is even better. Traffic Checking! :D

    I have Burnout Revenge...It might be a good game, but sadly, my copy of it is Nordic release, and it doesn't have english sounds, only Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian, which all annoy the living crap out of me, making the game nearly unplayable to me.

  • Final Fantasy X. Seriously who like that trash.
    Ironically, I love Final Fantasy XIII.
    Fight me.



  • Hmm how to define a classic, I guess for me it would be something released before 2000. It's quite hard for me to name classic games before that time that I couldn't appreciate. Since they most likely were somewhat innovative or defined the genre. And to really hate a game seems absurd. I don't even hate Bethesda developed Fallout games even with their disrespect to the orginals and ruining the future of Fallout as an great RPG.

    Trying to answer the question, I got bored really fast on Sid Meier's Pirates. And I have a huge thirst for pirate games. I'm sure there would be more classic games that didn't click with me, but either I haven't played them or they didn't raise any big feelings so I can't remember them. If the question was "popular games you don't like or that don't interest you" I could name a lot more.



  • @DarthAmmii I belive it was only for a limited time you could get the demo.



  • i only have 2 games that i utterly hate, ad truly wish were never made...

    FF7 is hands down the worst final fantasy ever..imo it was the start of the decline of the series..

    and fucking OoT...seriously just fuck that that whole fucking game and anyone who worked on it..

    also twilight princess is gutter trash also.



  • @KingofDMC I don't like either of them but I'm glad they was made for the people that do



  • Mario Games
    The most pointless game series ever.

    Bonus fact: I liked the old sonic games.

    Care to elaborate?



  • I got a gaming PC for the first time a few years ago, so I missed a lot of PC games that came out before 2012, including Half-life 2. I got it the orange box a few years later but damn I could not get into that game, and nowadays I can't look at the source engine. All I see is shitty fire and G-mod youtube clips.



  • @Oscillator

    to me OoT is what is wrong with 3D Zelda, it started the whole downward spiral of the 3d games. (these opinions also go hand and hand with twilight princess) it holds you hand far to much, which makes the game easy as piss, the world is so dull to look at whole going from point A to point B that it makes playing the game boring as shit.

    it's such a huge disappointment after the G.O.A.T LTTP, and it's like it tried to mimic that game in a 3D space but failed to capture the magic and fun of LTTP.

    then the fans of the game, who hold it as the best of all time, when it's overshadowed by the more fun Windwaker, and the even MORE FUN Skyward Sword, it's just an overrated and over hyped game to me that did nothing to put the series forward...it's just babies first zelda (just like FF7).

    This is the polar opposite of the popular view. OOT and TP are the more open adventures, while Wind Waker and Skyward Sword are the games for babies.

    I personally love OOT's mechanics. The controls, auto jump, Z-targeting, C-button quick items. Plus the atmosphere. The ambient dungeon music, the day/night cycle, the rain, the hidden pits, the freaky characters.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that speed/level of action is a big deal for you. OOT and TP are fairly laid back, while LTTP/Wind Waker/Skyward Sword have snappier movement/more enemies/faster puzzles.



  • that may be another reason, cause i am a fan of amazing combat in games...and tbh outside of Fi (who is pretty much god damn navi) SS was godlike for me, and i'm bias toward WW cause i just loved sailing around and listening to the music lol.



  • @KingofDMC said in Classic games that you hate?:

    Aside from the "Hey! Listen!" prodding, Navi is pretty unobtrusive. Fi, on the other hand, interrupts you CONSTANTLY. When you enter an area. When you see the first character in an area. When you come across a seemingly impassable obstacle. When you see something out of place.

    Damn, I am in total agreement with you. Wind Waker has great art direction and it's why I love it most. I haven't gotten around to trying Skyward Sword yet. The DS Zelda games are a lot of fun IMO. Phantom Hourglass was great despite having to revisit that damn temple over and over again.

    I didn't play WW on GC because of how stupid Link looked. They improved this in HD, so I played that. Good story, big world, but the overuse of primary/flat colours, low variety of enemies, sparseness of interesting locations on the sea, and the worst thing, incredibly easy dungeons (aside from the Savage Labyrinth, which was better executed in Twilight Princess as the Cave Of Ordeals), make it my second least favorite 3D Zelda after Skyward Sword. The whole game screams "for young children".



  • @Oscillator I don't get the "young children" thing. I understand its a toon version of Link but I dont see it as kiddie. I know thats why people hated it cause all they wanted was graphical upgrade from the n64 games, not a new art direction. The explosions, water effects, heat waves, and facial expressions gives the game more character than I initially gave it credit for. And it's more timeless for me. But to each their own.



  • I've recently been digging into Rare Replay on Xbox One, and the latest game I've been playing is Banjo Kazooie. I've heard such great things about it ever since the N64 days, and was very excited to finally get to play it.

    Unfortunately, I haven't been enjoying the game very much. I wouldn't say I'm hating the game by any means, but I'm realising that "collectathon platformers" are not really my thing. I much prefer the idea of just being presented with individual levels or challenges to tackle one at a time, then running around trying to collect a bunch of nick nacks in order to progress.

    This is why I really liked the Super Mario Galaxy series. Even though you're also collecting Stars to progress, the stars tend to be given to you as a reward for completing a specific level or challenge, rather then scattered randomly throughout a world.

    Chalk it up to preference, but unfortunately Banjo Kazooie just doesn't seem to be my cup of tea.
