    Everyone's been there, a game is critically accliamed, has record sales figures everyone loves it but you just dont understand why.

    I'll kick things off with one thats going to burn the forum down: Zelda: TP and Final Fantasy games

    What are yours?

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Bloody loads of 'em! But don't we do this thread every other week? :-)

    I'll start with my usual - Deus Ex. And throw in Guitar Hero, of which "one go was more than enough".

    Games I don't like aren't great, so I can't contribute. ;)

    Grand Theft Auto (Vice I think), Animal Crossing...

    Edit: Took out TS2 because I did actually "like" it. Just got bored of it :p

    if i don't like them, they're not great games.

    they're popular games that i don't like.

    Halo. Just don't like it at all.

    Add Gears of War to that. Dull.

    SoTC and Gears of War. For different reasons I just found both exceptionally dull.

    ICO - dull & soooo inferior to the Zelda games.
    Psychonauts - below average platformer.
    Animal Crossing Wild World - pointless.
    Deus Ex - dated even when it was new.
    All Final Fantasy games (apart from VII) - too big and the random battles really do my head in.

    While I'm quite happy for you to dislike Ico, comparing them to Zelda is just plain wrong. They're totally different games.

    I would cut and paste in the usual list but that would be admitting the games I hate are actually 'great' and I'm the one with the problem.

    Gran Turismo

    Game - "stop in that box"

    Me - "I'll stop where I want thankyou very much, this is supposed to be a game"

    Oblivion. As hard as I wanted to like it and explore its beautiful landscape...hated it.

    Metal Gear Solid. I love stealth but I never got on with the whole series.

    Pretty much any JRPG.

    Kingdom hearts. Just don't see what the fuss is about.

    Tekken, DoA, VF and any other fighting games of that type.

    Viewtifull Joe. A bit unfair to say I didn't like it, but it wasn't as good as I had thought.

    Valar morghulis.

    FFXII, Zelda MM and GoldenEye instantly spring to mind.

    Zelda
    Metal Gear Solid
    GTA:SA
    Dead Rising - or at least, it makes me angrier than almost any other game I've ever played, simply because it should be amazing.

    Resident Evil 4. Thought it was more of the same with a fairly awkward control mechanism ( I played the ps2 version)

    Ocarina of Time and Mario 64. Neither of these did anything for me at the time. Possibly because I was so wrapped up in Goldeneye. Haven't played them since they came out though so I might feel differently if I went back to them now.

    GTA: San Andreas
    Dead Rising
    Metal Gear Solid (any of them)
    Devil May Cry
    Gran Turismo
    Animal Crossing
    ICO
    The original Mario games
    Resident Evil (any of them, especially 4)
    Kingdom Hearts

    I could probably go on

    Viewtiful Joe
    Metroid Prime
    Final Fantasy XII
    Dragon Quest VIII

    They aren't terrible, but I simply don't like them.

    God of War.

    Totally inferior to the Prince of Persia games or Ninja Gaiden.

    World of Warcraft. Never have I played such a dull fudging game. Such an utter waste of time (not that my favourite games ARE NOT a waste of time).

    I was also rather 'meh'-ed out by Psychonauts. Perhaps I'll give it another chance if it comes up in the Swapsies' Thread. *hint hint*

    No they aren't! Platforms/puzzles/combat/adventure. They are infact very similar.

    Crackdown: Then again I wouldn't say that this game was great and I'm only going by my experience of playing the demo of course; to me it was all pointless.
