I may be a Nintendo fan, but Xbox 360 is one of my favourite consoles
Replaying the original Dead Space; it's still magnificent, holds up beautifully even 8 years later
That was one of EA's hallmark games before they went creatively bankrupt.
I adore the first game but was disappointed in the second. In Dead Space, Isaac was part Samus Aran, part Gordon Freeman. He was a silent everyman, who used his technical and mechanical skills to survive in a hostile environment.
In the second game Isaac was more of a badass space marine. For me, that sapped the game of its soul.
I don't really think GTA V is a bad game, mind you. But I don't consider ditching such a big AAA, heavily-marketized and widely loved game in favor of some much more niche, unnaccessible game to be that rare either. Both games are pretty much two different experiences altogether, and just like it happens with other media, both aim to capture a different public. There are several things that one offer, which the other lacks. And viceversa. Having favored one over the other doesn't really have to do anything with the quality, but rather, the content itself. What most people fail to acknowledge is that sometimes, one simply prefer something to other, more popular product, just because you actually prefer it. No reason needed. Not a hipster reflex, not a deviated taste. I'm positive every single game out there has the potential to become someone's favored (or favourite) game.
I generally point out Final Fantasy 8 to be my favourite game of the franchise, and one of my favourite games altogether. Detractors (or people who really didn't like it that much) are quick to point me out its flaws -flaws I actually acknowledge-, but it doesn't matter if the game were to be an objectively piece of trash because I'd still like it regardless. Not because of being different, but because I do. For all its problems I always find something to love in it.
Fatal Frame 5 is just the same case. I'd prefer it over GTA V, because, I do. It also helps the fact that I do love some japanese horror, it features some unique atmosphere that can't be grasped in any other genre.

About Me: Bet with mZuzek: Zelda on Wii U will run at 720p (He says 1080p)
Bet with WolfpackN64/kljesta64: The next Nintendo home console won't be a big leap over PS4 (They say it will)
Bet with ExplodingBlock: Zelda U will not be Wii U exclusive (He says it will)
