ZELDA

don't shoot me :(

OoT 3DS for me too. I finally had access to a device that could play the greatest game of all time (allegedly). About 5 hours in I thought WTF is this? and stopped playing.

Also The Elder Scrolls Oblivion. I also gave it about 5 hours. I bought it with my PS3 so excited to get to play an Elder Scrolls game. Man was I disappointed. I've avoided all the Fallout games for fear of being similarly disappointed.

Mobile games and 99% of indies.

As much as I like to trash FFXIII, at least I can play it for over 40 hours as compared to how much the above games actively annoy me.

Are the 1% of games you like the legendary ones? shovel knight, cave story, castle crashers, etc.

 

personally, I think just avoiding Steam helps me not see the bad side of indies. Nintendo controls the eshop quite well, so i prefer to just find indies on there. It helped me find Mutant Mudds, which is a very frustrating (but enjoyable) game

Yes very few like Journey, apotheon, Rocket league etc. Really only liked Apotheon due to the setting, as I love Greek stuff. I find most Indies lack in interesting settings.



FF XIII. And it became my favorite mainline FF game. After a few hours I told some friends, and I quote: "It's more boring than church." Sometimes it pays to try. Sometimes though:

I tried to like many games. Most famous example is Mass Effect. I tried to like it 3 times. I always got bored to death before I even got to space.

Pokemon X/Y. please don't kill me. It was very bland and forgettable IMO. Bland characters, bland region(except Lumiose), mediocre pokemon designs overall, stupidly easy difficulty(even for Pokemon games) and more.
I feel like the game wouldn't be as much praised if it wasn't the first 3D pokemon game.

X/Y was horribly done. Actually, all the 3DS Pokémon games have gone down in quality since the DS era. (Haven't played Sun/Moon yet because I don't really want to waste my money.)

OT: Monster Hunter comes to mind. I've tried to complete Skyward Sword maybe four times but have failed each time. Mainly due to laziness though, it seems like there's a possibility that I'll like it as a whole in the end.

Mass Effect. The setting and story seemed interesting, but the combat was soooo clunky that I ended up losing interest after the first several hours. I just couldn't get past the unenjoyable gameplay.



Uncharted 1+2 and The Last of Us.

Maybe if they were on PC with Mouse/keyboard controls I might have liked them, but the combat was awful with dual analog controls, and I got bored of it and the rest of the gameplay after a short while each time I tried them.

Metroid Prime on Gamecube.

Again an issue of controls.  The trilogy edition on Wii was so much more enjoyable.  ut it probably also didn't help that I was a little kid when I tried Prime for the first time and got really frustrated fighting this one giant plant boss over and over again.  That boss is pretty easy now.

I never played the first one, but rather liked ME2. Did you ever try it? Curious. KOTOR is an easy top 5 all time for me, so the first ME is still on my hit list, in spite of the consensus, objective flaws. Like the elevators.

I tried to like kingdom hearts. The camera and controls were bad, and the level design was spotty. Now KHII is entirely different...
