We all have those
games that are adored by everybody, but you just can’t get into. One of my
friends can’t find the appeal of Zelda, and another wouldn't go near
Uncharted if his life depended on it. However, I have my own personal likes and
dislikes. These are the most critically acclaimed games that I don’t like. By the way, if you plan to tell me in the comments section every single reason I am wrong, please note that these are my opinions and will not hurt you in any way shape or form. And don't worry, later I will post games I like that were critically panned.
SUPER MARIO BROTHERS 1
I am not nostalgic
for this game, so when people told me that this was a great game I was
dumbfounded. The levels were overly simple and easy, with a repetitive
soundtrack and bland level design. The hardest parts of the game focused less
on skill and more on cheap deaths. The game can be beat in under an hour. It
may have been revolutionary, but it doesn’t hold up today.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 1-2
The Sonic the
Hedgehog franchise is famous for having catchy music, tight controls and good
level design. That is my description of Sonic III and Knuckles, not the first
two. The first two are uninspired slogs through some techno wonderland or
something. Really, it was just another 2D platformer of that 16 bit era. Sure
it has catchy music, but that is why youtube is my most visited sight.
Battlefield 3 gave
us a ‘Follow’ campaign that felt more on the rails then some of the annual call
of duty releases. The multiplayer was fun, but it didn’t keep me captivated. I
would rather be playing Counter-Strike or Team Fortress 2’s multiplayers. Also,
the Frostbite 2 engine doesn’t bring much new to the table.
I could not find
any enjoyment from anything in this game. Scratch that, I could find lots of
enjoyment from laughing at this game. I had fun colliding into walls and
randomly losing control of my taxi because the game is flawed in every possible
SKYLANDERS: SPYRO’S ADVENTURE
This game was like
the lego games if you had to buy every single minifugre. And it is
significantly worse. The combat is boring and the level design is uninspired. I
fell that this was nothing but a way for Activison to get money.
