    I loved TS2. The casual dismissal from Crytek that there's no demand on it based on a laughably obscure and basic facebook "like" hit system that noone even knew existed until after it closed was such a deliberately hamstrung excuse that it killed any lingering respect I had for Crytek after the laughing stock that is Crysis 2.

    Uncharted 2 is the least enjoyable game I've played in the last 10 years. It's hatefully designed.

    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
    You know, I never felt masochistic enough to take it for a spin.

    It's one of those games that has left me uncertain as to whether to laugh at its awfulness or weep at the legacy of awesome it sullied, alongside Activision's continued raping of the Goldeneye legacy and Super Monkey Ball being other notable contenders for the prize (though really I'm inclined to rule out SMB because Sega shooting their own hard/software in the foot due to their own naivete is just something you learn to live with after two decades)

    As a bonus, I'd rate Mass Effect 2 as the second-most hateful game of the last decade. Gaming dystenry.

    Ahem

    This thread has been a goldmine for genuinely changing my opinions of many a poster for the better! Not saying you're one mind, always liked you.

    People who say the Dreamcast is one of the best ever consoles are living in denial.

    I couldn't give a rat's ass about social gaming like facebook apps and smartphone games. I've yet to play a game on my phone that i didn't think was bloody annoying unless it was an Angry Birds type thing.

    Stupid touchscreens, i paid to see the game not my finger.

    Oh and Save Anywhere is still awesome.

    Amen to all of that with a minor "hmmm, really depends on the game" for the save game one.#

    I really doubt they are unpopular opinions though.

    It was good for its time but I've yet to play a game on it that hasn't aged horribly. JRPGs (skies of arcadia and grandia 2) don't count as the genre hasn't really changed for 20 years...

    Skies of Grandia, as you say, are exceptions. But at least with Skies the GC director's cut pissed all over the DC original.

    Sega are very "of their time" when it comes to making games. Almost everything they make dates fucking horribly even by gaming standards, which is why Crazy taxi is now a laughing stock antique and not considered a stone cold classic.

    I can't see that being too unpopular. I never understood people's issues with the third one. You could climb up fucking walls, what's not to love?

    You are a factory of sadness.

    It divided levels into irritating chunks right in the middle of indoor corridors was the cardinal sin.

    A regression to a bit too much of the supernatural that was one of the main problems people have with the first game is another.

    Love Deadly Shadows (if only for the Cradle and isolated levels/sections I can't remember the name of right now) but as a franchise sequel it was very, very far from even approaching the bar set by the design in 2 as an overall game and was horrendously hobbled by last-gen console-centric development in its wish to dazzle with graphical bells and whistles at the expense of being able to realise its design ambition.

    Hmm, I never really found that a problem, it did it in fairly logical places for the most part.

    That's a pretty fair assignation.

    Well, I disagree, I'm going to have an unpopular opinion and say that I liked the third one as much as the others. Could have done without hte 3rd person but that's about my only complaint, assuming my memory is not entirely revisionist.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I've never played a single Facebook game in my life. And yet it's, what, a billion dollar industry on its own?

    edit; awful grammar

    There is nothing wrong with Facebook games. Never played any but I've seen the investment the missus used to put into farmville and it is no more shallow than Wow et al.

    Is your missus fat, sweaty and have a neck beard like WoW players too?
  • Deleted user 28 December 2012 13:09:47
    No, so I guess facebook games are actually better than MMOs.

    Trying to justify Zynga games like Farmville as worthy experiences despite not even having experienced them firsthand (not that you need to in order to see how lazy and shameless that particular company's ethos is) is up there with people who defend the Virtua Boy.

    It's just wrong man, wrong! Damn you to hell!

    Horses for courses. If you like competitive fighting games the dreamcast was great. It had the best version of Marvel vs Capcom 2 and was the mainstay for evo for probably more than 10-15 years.

    It came when the ps3 needed a game with graphics you could wank over. The actual game was cookie cutter average IMO.
