Controllers are better for FPS games!

On this, not sure if this is a popular opinion or unpopular or even and opinion but in my view Aim-Assist should be removed from modern console shooters, all of them. Infact should never have been introduced to begin with. I think if we never had it as an option we would all just be used to it now so wouldn't need it.

Hmm, pie.

Around the Network

I might have some unpopular ones:

- last of us is crap
- agents of mayhem was actually fun
- driving games have been stagnant for the past 10 years.
- the wii u has better exclusives than xbox one and ps4 combined
- the gamecube is the best console of all time
- Super Mario party is rubbish
- pgr > forza

Half-Life 2 is just good.

Also think so. The game is good, but nothing special.

- Controllers are always better to play games with than mouse and keyboard.

So you never played a FPS. Or a point and click adventure. A real-time strategy game. A classic roguelike. A MUD or a textadventure.

Hmm, I didn't think of point and click or real-time strategy games. I used to play these as a kid (usually free browser games), but I've never looked at them in the same way as 'normal' games.

FPS however, is something I should have added to my unpopular opinions, since first-person view is awful and makes me not want to play the game.

Interesting to see two posters put opposite opinions out, like “GcN controller sucks, yay N64”/“N64 controller sucks, yay GCN”

I have just one:
Octopath Traveler has a better characters than most JRPGs.

Around the Network

Mario 64 sucked.
Naughty Dog makes terrible playing games but get a pass because of graphics and narrative.
Online gaming is better than single player

I got some more:

- Pokemon hasn't been fun since 2nd gen

- Tearaway wasn't as good as everyone hyped it up to be. (Both Vita and PS4)

- Vita was a better console than the 3DS (Shame about it's support)

- Halo 1 & 2 campaigns were actually boring.

- Infamous was a let down franchise

- Final Fantasy Dissidia NT is more fun than the previous titles on the psp

- Yakuza isn't that fun

- Killzone 2 is the best shooter ever made

- Tomb Raider is boring

- Journey is overrated, I wouldn't have finished it if it wasn't so short

- Gravity Rush on vita was too frustrating to play, thankfully GR2 is much better

- Mass Effect 2 wasn't fun at all.

What is GaaS?


Agreed on the Bioware thing mind you. Feel so bad for Anthem. :P

games as a service

I guess the capitalization is wrong?

Last of us is at best ok.
Final fantasy 8 is the best ff.
God of war is mediocre.
Waverace is the best game on the gamecube.
Super Mario galaxy games are ok.

-Gothic 1 and 2 are way better ARPGs than TES3.

- Counter Strike is still the best online Multiplayer FPS on the market.

-AOE2 is the best RTS ever created and it got even better with the latest expansions.

-the writing in KotoR and Jade Empire is bland and cliche also the good/evil mechanic sucks. DA:O is the best 3D game Bioware ever created.

-GaaS is not the bane of the industry.GaaS is the objectively best finance model for online multiplayer games.

That's all I can think of now.

Some more opinions:

- grand strategy is better than 4X

- SSB is the best fighting game series

- Pokemon gen 1 are the worst games in the series but introduced the best pokemon.

- Pokemon Platin is the best Pokemon game.

- More female main characters are good for the industry, also gender swapping of well known characters is nice from time to time.
