"Bad" Games that You Love



  • The Four Kings Casino and Slots on PS4. It's free to play. It's made by the same people that worked on Playstation Home (I believe). The animations are awful. Sometimes the games don't work at all. The server crashes constantly. It has less charm than a potato. But.... I enjoy it. It boils down to my love of blackjack and poker really trumping anything else but I love the idea of being in a virtual casino with other real players spending time and money for no real reason. Plus, I get the same enjoyment I would from watching a B-movie.

    As a japan trash fan, too many to list.

    Same. I make no apologies.



  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 got a lot of heat and is considered by many to be a terrible game, I love it though.



  • It might be strong to say I loved it, but I enjoyed playing Raving Rabbids on Wii.

    Granted I had never played Rayman so that might have helped.



  • I don't think it can be controversial just to like something y'know. If you want to argue that a game is good then you might start something. Arguing about "mechanics" and "quality" just makes people all hot and heavy but I'm all about people liking the things that they like. I loved StarWars Battlefront 2016 even if it "lacked content" (which is a weird complaint haha).



  • Blue Stinger, sure it has a lot of problems but you can buy weapons from vending machines including t-shirts which let a guy called DOGS BOWER use new fighting styles to punch aliens into pieces. It's set at christmas too which is a bonus point in my book.



  • Megarace was a fav of mine. I really don't know if it was really bad, but watching the FMV makes me think it might have been...

  • Some regard Sonic Adventure 2 as a bad game (looking back now, I can see why some would) but I have a save with 300+ hours to tell you I loved that game!



  • Diablo 3. All I kept reading was how it was nothing like diablo 2. I actually think it was spot and I like it better then diablo 2, yes did play d2 when it first came out

    Deadly Premonition. Anyone who says it's bad isn't wrong, but god there's so much other goodness in there that they aren't quite right either

  • Everyone has seemingly hated the "Musou" series for as long as I can remember, and I've been buying every single game, every remake, every Empires/Extreme/etc edition and literally anything "Musou".

    And I'll probably never stop, it's my one guilty pleasure in the gaming world.



  • I actually quite like Silent Hill Homecoming. Is it the best in the series no? Does it lose it's way sometimes? Yes. But it does have a good sense of general horror and tried to build on the history of the town. Plus, the boss designs are great.

    It's not an amazing game, but I think it gets bashed a lot more than it deserves.



  • Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest is an incredible game. I go back and play it just about every year. Yeah, I guess you could let the history of the game's release offend you and affect your opinion of it, but it's a fun trip, and does exactly what it was created to do.



  • @Inflorescence I never understood the hatred of that one! :D



  • @ZyloWolfBane I've only recently found out everyone seems to hate the musou games. They're not masterpieces but they are tons of fun. Warriors Orochi is still my fave.

    Funny enough I played Dynasty Warriors 2 at a demo stand in a CompUSA when the PS2 was still recently released, and this is from a guy who grew up with ROTK games, so this genre blew my mind, wanted a PS2 so bad just for that.

    And it's been an addiction ever since lol.



  • NieR.

    The game is complete shit, the story is trite, the gameplay is undeveloped and repetitive, environments are dull, but the soundtrack cemented its position as one of my favourite games of all-time.

    I've honestly never seen a game redeemed so much by its soundtrack.

    With the way the internet's been acting, Mighty No. 9 dripped out of kthulu's @$$hole, riddled with maggots and bubbling in puss.

    I haven't played it, but that description alone deserves an upvote.



  • The first Witcher game.

    I love that game and I had the shittiest time trying to play it, the city textures didn't load in for me, so it'd be a bunch of floating people and Geralt running around in mid air and I memorized how to get around without being able to see where everything was while in the first area you get into in the city (the like slum distract) and where all the doors were and used the map to guess if there were stairs. The inside of buildings and every other environment worked fine but not the slum area of the city.

    And I still love that game. It's stupidly irrational love of something I had such a hard and bad time playing but maybe my love comes from the stubbornness that game inspired in me, I refused to not play my bugged out as hell copy and learnt to love it.



  • Tharsis got some pretty lackluster reviews, but I enjoy it quite a bit. Yes, it's punishingly difficult. Yes, it's largely based on luck (it's a dice game, after all). But with careful play and a good understanding of the rules, it's totally winnable. You just have to make good decisions and have a streak of moderately good luck. If it was any easier, it wouldn't be fun.
