Watch Dogs 2 is a better GTA game than Grand Theft Auto 5.

Super Mario Odyssey is a boring, thoroughly mediocre platformer, and if it was called Gary the Plumber's Magical Hat Adventure and it was on Xbox One, it would be like an 80 on Metacritic. But because it's a Nintendo game we all have to sit around fawning like they've just invented fire. Sunshine was better.

Gradius V, R-Type/2/Delta/Final, Einhander, Thunder Force IV, Shienryu Explosion, Ikaruga, Raiden 3, Dariusburst/Chronicle Saviours, DoDonPachi, Battle Garrega are all better than Radiant Silvergun.

Radiant Silvergun is probably the most overrated game of all time.

The second most overrated game of all time is Sonic Adventure - the vast majority of following 3D Sonic games play almost exactly the same but are deemed worse.

Sonic Heroes is actually really good.

The music in Streets of Rage is better than Streets of Rage 2.

Killzone: Shadow Fall (including the multiplayer) is better than pretty much all fps games this generation.

Smash Brothers games are awful.

Nintendo in general are awful.

@mookysam i really enjoyed Lords of Shadow 2 and would love a LoS3 (well apart from that ONE stealth point before the Agreus boss fight, that can go burn in hell)

@KALofKRYPTON i really enjoyed Sonic Heroes, i thought the ability to switch characters during a level to open up new paths or to take care of certain enemies was a good thing

@Tasuki i edited the first post to ask people to keep it civil but i think it should be OK, most of the people an this site are pretty level headed

OK here's a big one, BUT

I don't like The Last of Us, i thought it was boring and that the game play was stale (although on that second point i had just come off Uncharted 4)

@kyleforrester87 yeah i know some things said here might irk some people but the thread is here for people to put out their opinions that are considered unpopular because everyone has them and i'll be keeping an eye on the thread to try to keep it civil so please feel free to contribute and give us some of your "unpopular" gaming opinions

I'm looking forward to every other fps having a battle royal mode in the hope that the bubble bursts and that everyone stops wetting the bed over the bang-average likes of Fortnite and that someone, somewhere does an article about M.A.G. and how great it was but criminally overlooked.

@FullbringIchigo I dunno, most of my unpopular opinions are just as a result of ignorance I think, just like everyone else's. I hate Ubisoft openworld games but I've only ever played 3 and cleared none of them you know, so how can my opinion be valid haha. Anyway, I just got Assassins screed Origins so we'll see if that changes my mind

No holding back.

  • Nintendo is much better now with the Switch than it was during the Wii and Wii U periods. They are actually making real games instead of unambitious titles that all felt like they were on a limited budget. Super Mario Galaxy and Skyward Sword are both an utter joke compared to the ambition that is realised in both Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild. These two latter games actually live up to video game standards.
  • I prefer story over gameplay in JRPGs.
  • Tomb Raider is a much better series than Uncharted overall. TR actually has fun gameplay whereas in Uncharted it's the same shooty shooty bang bang all the time. The Last of Us is also better than Uncharted for the same reason.
  • PS4 is the best console of all time.
  • Pokémon hasn't been good since generation 4 (although generation 7 with Sun and Moon came close). Also the fact that people seems to hate Let's Go even though those games are MUCH refreshing than another same old generation.

Opinions regarding certain games:

  • Knack is genuinely a good game.
  • Metroid: Other M is also a genuinely good game.
  • Skyward Sword has flawless controls.
  • Dead Space 1 is the best survival horror game.
  • Heavy Rain sucks.
  • Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are the best games in their respective franchise.
  • Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts is another genuinely good game.
  • Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice is the best AA game (and Apollo Justice is a close second).
  • Super Paper Mario is an amazing game.
  • The original DKC trilogy sucks.
  • The Last Guardian is better than Ico and SotC.

@kyleforrester87 not every unpopular opinion comes from ignorance, perhaps you just don't like something everyone else seems to love or perhaps you love something everyone else hates, we all have opinions that go against the masses

@FullbringIchigo Yeah I guess so, it's a tough concept to get your head around really. Like there is some absolute JUNK on TV, and it must be popular because they keep showing it, so am I wrong for thinking it's junk when it is blatantly absolute junk?! But at the same time I think not liking games like Zelda, Mario, Uncharted is all well and good but you have to take a step back and consider that your opinions might actually be wrong in some cases lol. For me, it's best not to reinforce my bad opinions by writing them down, because I might be putting up barriers to enjoying games that might actually be good in the future.

Dichotomy

I've said elsewhere that I sadly don't enjoy Witcher 3 despite being a big RPG fan. On top of that I think a shorter crafted game is more fun than any open world game, AAA games are generally nowhere near as good as what the indie scene is producing, Fallout 3 isn't very good and Resi 4 did nothing new or worthwhile to the series.

Oh, and local multiplayer is the only multiplayer worth playing.

@kyleforrester87 yeah i can understand that

the thread will still be here if you decide to use it (hopefully)

Yennifer over Triss. Deal with it.

I thought Rise of the Tomb Raider was a thoroughly average game and below the standards set in the previous game. I also think Bethesda open world games, like Fallout and Edler Scrolls are overrated. Not bad, just not as good as they get reviewed.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@KratosMD Regarding the Pokemon Let's Go games...

They are essentially Pokemon Yellow (etc) but missing(!) features. Only the Original set of Pokemon to use in the game (PoGo transfers only work in a separte battle mode), same Kanto region but no random battles and no catching Pokemon in the wild.

This all feeds in to my general feelings against Nintendo. And how they handle the business model around Pokemon games. Two near identical games each release, both full priced retail titles, both coveted by fans (like my daughter) equally; rather than, buy one - here's a DLC top up for the other.

Let's Go now seeks to convert PoGo players to the fuller game experience with a remake of the first game, and again - released as two versions with the 'proper' Switch Pokemon game still due in 2019.

Having played a LOT of Ingress in the early days, I have many 'feelings' towards Pokemon Go!

@KALofKRYPTON I've played the mainline Pokémon games since gen 3 and I'm just tired of the same formula being reused for all the games. The fact that catching Pokémon is now a mini-game is enough of a change to make the experience refreshing for me (since you're going to be catching lots of Pokémon naturally).

Also, it bugs me that the majority wants another generation of the same old formula. Are people really that shallow? They just want more of the same? No wonder this series never evolves. We'll never get an open world "Pokémon MMO" at this rate if people don't want the series to change. That's why I want to support Let's Go. Things like no random encounters is a godsend for this franchise. And the game seems to be more engaging than before. These changes should be exciting for long time Pokémon fans, but they aren't apparently.

@FullbringIchigo That's good to hear. We've also not seen much of the game other than the trailer and the E3 Treehouse Live Stream, which showed that online multiplayer is still there, you gain exp points from catching Pokémon, the overworld has seen updates and there are some events to partake in in the towns that you visit. So there are still plenty of things we may not know about regarding the rest of the game.
