Say Something Good About a Game You Otherwise Despise

  • Final Fantasy XIII is absolutely gorgeous.

    That's all I can say about it. I blame that game for wrecking my PS3, so that's all you'll get out of me.

  • @El-Shmiablo said in Say Something Good About a Game You Otherwise Despise:

    @Nillend That was the only thing I liked!
    The characters, story, pacing, performances... EVERYTHING WAS SOO BAAAAD.

    Though people think there is something wrong with me when I say that I hated X so much I swore off Square Enix games for almost ten years, but XIII restored my faith in the series...

    First off, I've never thought I would meet someone who actually likes Final Fantasy 13. How do you do?

    Secondly, I've been playing through FFX HD since I never beat it back in the day, got stuck on a boss since I hadn't grinded enough and gave up, and I'm kind of interested in X-2. And holy shit is FFX cringeworthy. I didn't remember it being this bad. It's like a bad fanfic at times.

  • Uncharted is a pretty good looking pile of mediocrity.

  • I absolutely loathe Halo, but I appreciate the old school fun of playing Halo against friends on competing consoles.

  • FF8 has the best summons and usage build around them

    I am a sucker for button smashing sequences

  • Akiba's Trip has some ok tracks in it's soundtrack for such a piece of garbage game.

  • DMC reboot looked nice

    Blazblue's story mode would make great material for some sort of youtube cringe challenge video.

    As a fighting game, shit is tight af... but that story mode...

  • Final fantasy 7 has an amazing sound track..... That hurt to type lol.

  • Dishonored has a nice art-style opposed to the need for a lot of similar types of games going for the hyper-realistic approach to graphics.

    Still terrible though.

  • Fallout 4 introduced me to the songs "Atom Bomb Baby" and "The Wanderer."

  • @Hazz3r
    Ha ha I really like that game, and not going to argue for it in any way at all, just honestly interested in hearing why you didn't like it.

    @Hazz3r I literally cannot understand why a person would not like Dishonoured. One of the best stealth games OF ALL TIME.

  • @El-Shmiablo @flower_arrangement I also didn't like the game. Gameplay was nice, but the story was "meh" at best. Also the ending(s) was/were really disappointing. It's what ultimately destroyed the game for me, as it was going on a positive note until then, but it ended really anticlimactic
    and bland.
    I also couldn't connect with Corvo, as a main character (or any of them for that matter).

  • @El-Shmiablo

    I can't really explain it all that well. I really don't like the chaos system. I'm not going to spout the whole "ludonarrative dissonance" crap but it does feel really weird to me that I am presented all these different ways to commit murder and I'm not really allowed to use them!

    I also really don't like how long it takes for Corvo to become powerful (You have to REALLY commit to be able to stop time). I think it would be a much better game if abilities were learned between stages or something.

    I dunno man, I spent my entire playthrough just wanting to get to the end. Didn't enjoy it at all.

    @Hazz3r The only time you aren't "allowed" to use them is if you are trying to do a low chaos run.

    Motherfuckers got wrecked on my first playthough. Slow motion bolts to the face err'where.

  • Their games look amazing for the hardware they are built on :)

    Any naughty dog game ever (Except ctr) <3

  • NieR has the best soundtrack in any video game I've ever played, so much so that it motivated me to go through the game four times and get the true ending.

    Goddamn that soundtrack was good.

  • I really don't despise any game, as long as it makes someone happy, I'm okay with it.

    That being said, GTA V had graphics i guess...

  • Bethesda games are... Hilarious to discuss with other people in a watercooler "and then she fell through the world and i couldn't hand my quest in" sort of way.
