While not super-low scores, I couldn't get enough of White Night and Contrast.

Mission Impossible 64, I loved it back then, not so sure about now since it's been years since I tried that game.

This and eternal Ring.Even though it was not badly reviewed, i enjoyed much more than the reviews said



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Dragon age inquisition. Was rated 59% in germany (4players.de)...a joke
Dark souls was badly reviewed too (7.0 at gamersglobal.de)

Dark souls 1 is for sure my most played game ever. I was only disappointed of the addon.

Both of those games are critically acclaimed titles with metacritic scores just under 90, and won plenty of GotY awards.

Also since when is 7/10 considered bad? That is a positive review.

 

OT: I think any badly reviewed game I played as a kid. Wasn't very critical as a kid and could enjoy anything. Now I can't think of any examples, as I usually have either similar or more critical views than the critics. Also I rarely play badly reviewd games.

I thought it got a 7/10 in EGM magazine. Either way, I liked it. Did you ever play Winback 64?

That's not so bad, I think it deserved more but it's something. I don't remember playing Winback though :(



I don't think games that get 6s or 7s really count as games with "bad reviews". That's average, technically.

 

I feel like most the "bad" games I played were probably when I was a lot younger. I don't know what it got at the time, but I used to love BUBSY. I also liked Sonic Adventure 2 more than I should have, but mostly because leveling up Chaos was so addicting.

While I've only seen bits of Contrast I'm suprised it had so mixed reviews. Looked really pleasing asthetically and had a pretty unique gameplay mechannic with the shadows.

Also just looked up White Night, and it also looks kinda cool and really artsy.

 

Also props to OP, for this thread. It's nice to have a positive thread for once.
