Unpopular Gaming Opinions

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Unpopular Gaming Opinions

1) The N64 controller is complete dogshit, kill it with fire. However the Gamecube controller, is one of the best of all time
2) Kingdom Hearts is some of the wierdest shit I've ever seen, and not in the good way.
3) Naughty Dog is severly overrated. Not only are their many better studios, but several better studios even in Sony umbrella.
4) I'm not that big of a fighting game fan. However, from the ones I've played/tried out, Smash feels by far the worst to play.
5) Fallout 4 is a great game, and better than Fallout 3 by miles. Its not even close.
6) As a great as Nintendo is, some of their games are WAYYY overpriced. Pokemon Lets Go and Kirby Star Allies allies shouldve launched at half price, and have no business being anywhere near $60.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Final Fantasy 7 is the best of the bestest of the very best Final Fantasy.

Final Fantasy 14 is the best MMORPG, and the best recent Final Fantasy.

Persona is among the best of the RPGs.

Freedom Wars is the best PS Vita game.

God of War is godly epic.

Sonic '06 isn't that bad.

Brawl is better than Melee.

2D Sonic isn't fun.

Star Fox Zero is good.

Color Splash is better than Super Paper Mario.


Part two:
1) Ports/remasters/definitive editions are always a good thing. The more games that are available on different platorms, the better. Also definitive editions I like as I never buy games at launch, so having a complete package when I come around to a game is defintely great.
2) The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is complete crap (just like Fallout 3). Skyrim however, is one of the best games of all time
3) Red Dead Redemption II is horribly overrated. From the input latency, to the uneeded survival system, to the incredibly restrictive mission, to those "random" events that repeat, to the gameplay which feels worse than GTA 5. Its the GTA 4 of this gen. Rockstar has lost the open world crown. Doesnt stand up to masteriece which is GTA 5.
4) Ubisoft is great publisher/developer that makes great games.
5) Souls not having an easy mode is inexcusable.

Xbox one is a good gaming console.

Xbox exclusive has great variety (Halo,Gears,Forza,Recore,Quantum Break,Ori,Sunset overdrive,Ashen,etc) All different games. Sony games are too similar (Linear cinematic games )

Kingdom hearts is fun but stupid, Tetsuya Nomura design are pure shit (Just Cloud ,Sephirot variations)

Ps1 Saga frontier was a fantastic rpg

Xenogears has terrible narrative and pacing, bad camera,controls ,horrible dungeons design and almost zero exploration. Only good things are the whole story and the great music.

Actual Jrpgs are just anime shit for teenagers . Cliche story and half naked girls

Final fantasy X es terrible, great concept ruined for a cast de incredible stupid and cliché characters.

The best From Software games are the Kings field series. Dark souls is very easy in comparation.

Hideo kojima games are boring, simple ,basic gameplay with a tons of little details, but in the end, just linear and absurd. I want a game ,no his hype, secret messages and all that "mistery,secret shit" his fans like.

A lot more to say, just i dont have more time.

Sorry for my bad english.

1. Zelda OoT is not a good game, tried numerous times to get into it, found the controls awkward, gameplay chunky and all around not very interesting.

2. Fallout sucked after 3, I platinumed Fallout 3 and was super hyped for New Vegas, couldn't get into it. same for Fallout 4, I'm not even going to bother with 76

3. I still think PSASBR is more fun than SSB, despite putting more hours into SSB

4. Sonic All Stars Transformed is better than Mario Kart

I will try think of some more.

I agree with the first one if talking about the original version of XII released on PS2. I disagree with the second opinion but I don't even think its that unpopular, at least among fans of the franchise, I know that in terms of overall popularity, VII is the favourite but I don't think there is a more popular game to prefer than VI or IX (IX being the highest rated FF game on metacritic). If you preferred FFII or XI then I think that would be an unpopular opinion.

- Naughty Dog and all of their games are overrated
- Rockstar and all of their games are overrated
- Metroid Prime Federation Force is actually pretty good (it just shouldn't be a Metroid game, but the gameplay is solid and engaging)
- Metroid Other M as well as Star Fox Zero get way too much bashing

Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

WOW Thanks for the topic thread...  Top 3 in increasing order.


3.   Diablo III is a great game ; No it is not as good as Diablo II and it never will be but, it serves its core players and serves them well.  They took flak for taking

steps to eliminate pay to win, even though the AH was popular.  It remains a pure and free to play competitive game, that wasn't afraid to make decisions that ultimately kept the game true to itself.  I think that alone speaks a lot about it.


2.  The Playstation 2 is an inferior system.  Dreamcast 9.9.99  {...And I won't take the time to go into it here... maybe on another thread.}


The one that Aaaaalways brings the hate .... ::

1.  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was/is a Terrible game.  ;; I hated this game and I have called it the death of True Zelda games.  To me it turned the entire franchise to shit.

It was empty, boring, waaay over-rated [IT released AFTER Half-Life for Fuck's sake!] and full of chorish quests.   I nicknamed it Choremaster 2000. ...And Majora's Mask isn't even a videogame.  Zelda taking place on one map?? what's the point.  I'm glad Sony made Horizon:Zero Dawn so we can have a real Zelda game to play nowdays!
