    Thank god, someone else who thinks Paradise was a mistake.
    Your not the only one. It was absolutely souless and had a pointless open world.

    Only good thing it did was run at 60fps and had fantastic graphics. The PS3 port was also a miracle as it was one of the first 3rd party games that didn't run like shit other than that Paradise was a turd.
    Plus it was a rare early example of excellent value DLC, that won them a lot of brownie points.

    I really didn't like Mario 64, but love Mario 64 DS. I far prefer using a D-pad with a run button to the N64 Stick, which felt wooly and imprecise to me. Only on Mario 64 though, I like the N64 Stick for everything else.

    Also since it now appears to be the unpopular opinion, I bloody love Burnout Paradise.

    Now that is a bizarre opinion. I honestly felt that the lack of a proper analogue stick removed most of the joy from the game!

    Yeah, that's one I don't think I've ever seen before.

    Most would disagree, hence unpopular :)

    I've never played Dead Or Alive but have enjoyed looking at screenshots.

    That reminds me of another - I quite enjoy Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, specifically the Jet Ski racing. Some of the best Jet Ski action on 360. Mostly by default, but it's still fun ;)

    The casino games and most of the mini-games are alright too. Volleyball is rubbish though, with no local co-op and less control than the first game.

    DOA Xtreme volleyball has always struck me as something I imagine I would get some degree of enjoyment out of, and I'm immune to the DOA perving aspect so that's not even a factor in reaching that opinion.

    Odd because blatant objectification of women in games is one of my pet hates.

    The demo for the PSP version didn't even bother with the game part, it was literally just Perv Mode.

    Here's one:

    Binding of Isaac is utter wank that wears the Roguelike badge as sheep's clothing but is in reality so diluted by its devotion to being, eseentially, a twin stick shooter that it forgets a genuine rogue like is about more than including permadeath and procedural generation.


    I understand his development of it as a cathartic process of exorcising childhood demons, but he could have achieved the same effect without lumping it on the rest of us without playtesting. It has traces of feeling like "now you have my issues too, hahaha" sentiment that could have just been solved by having a good therapist.

    Perfect Dark N64 is the best FPS of all time.

    Body Harvest is one of the best games ever made.

    Chrono Trigger is fucking overrated.

    Zelda alttp bores me to horrible tears.

    The Thief series is probably the best series known to man.

    Chrono Trigger is really overrated.

    Turok 1 still has the most satisfying guns of any FPS.

    Alone in the dark : Jack is back, is a gem of a game.

    The Master System was better than the Nes

    Fixed.

    The rest I can live with, even the Chrono Trigger one. Hell, the Thief point I am borderline sympathetic to.

    No, you validated his delusion. I fixed it.

    Goldeneye, Half-life, Halo and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare all say 'hi' by the way.

    I'll second the opinion that Burnout Revenge was the best in the series.

    Halo and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare? Delusion?

    Wow, nice one! :D I remember it being one of the first games I got for my Sega Saturn back in the days. Never finished it because of the terrible gameplay and probably never will.

    Take the plastic bag challenge to cure stupidity.

  • Deleted user 28 December 2012 02:42:41
    @AgeOfChaos Both certainly better than Perfect Dark.

    I do love these threads at Christmas. Nothing like a good bit of friendly whinging every once in a while, especially as release over Christmas when you realise your natural cynicism is getting threatened by heat-of-the-season achilles heel optimisim and you start to evaluate your gaming year due to the inevitsble "best of year" awards that become so ubiquitous.

    Chrono Trigger only starts to become special towards the end of its playthrough, IMO, when the world opens up a bit and you have a few side quests to do.

    For the first 10 hours or so it can feel like just another JRPG.

    Perfect Dark kicks the crap out of Halo and it bettered Goldeneye in just about every single way. Still not as good as Half Life 2, Deus Ex or various others though.

    Perfect Dark bettered Goldeneye in all areas except the SP IMO...Uninspired stuff, though well executed...

    Burnout 2 is the best of the Burnouts...

    Halo is just boring, I can't see a single innovative thing about it...

    CoD 4 is almost a completely different genre to Goldeneye/PD...

    Mario kart is shit, even in 4 player local multiplayer.

    Blur is the best multiplayer racing game available.

    I like the concept of free to play games, as long as they are done fairly (e.g. Planetside 2)

    Did you ever play the multiplayer with bots? It was so amazingly bad it was funny. I've never seen worse AI in a game

    Timesplitters 2 gets my vote for the worst way-pointing. If you created a custom game and added tons of bots they'd eventually start running in long straight lines like a karaoke.
