-the more futuristic is a CoD game, the worse, what is that of running around walls and becoming invisible? Are you a soldier or Spider-man? 

 

-Pokemon, I remember when I knew all the names of all of them from 1st to 4th gen, but the new gens, what is that?!

 

-Souls games are not that difficult, you just have no patience

 

-PS3 is the best gen, and it's not bc this is my ps3-project account, I also enjoy ps4 but man, ps3 is ps3.

 

-As someone said before, your trophy log is not that impressive if you have each game repeated 4 times, but I understand that you do it if you have 200+ plats.

 

-This whole Bethesda thing... I don't even know what to say about it

As for Shenmue, it has to be said that there was no huge demand for it after all - people were caught up in the E3 hype when the third game was announced, and then lost interest again. Shenmue 1 & 2 HD didn't perform especially well, and Shenmue III performed abysmally. If the remaster is an example of preservation, as you suggest, then it failed spectacularly. The series is dormant again. Why? Because the world has moved on. As far as future generations are concerned, there is no huge loss.

 

 

I said in my original post that I'm not actively against the preservation of games. My point remains that preservation isn't nearly as effective, and therefore not nearly as important, as some preservationists would like to believe.

 

Preservation isn't about reviving series, what is this nonsense?  Preservation is 100% about getting a game onto usable and/or more accessible media.  Doesn't matter if it's a PS4/Xbox disc, a Nintendo Switch cart, or a PC download (a cracked PC release may live on longer than console media fwiw).  It didn't produce a game that new generations love, but the series has so many ways to played and will live on much longer now for the few new gamers that did and will enjoy it.

 

You can argue it probably wasn't worth it in terms of the money Ys and Sega put into the remasters and Shenmue III... but that has nothing to do with preservation.  Preservation isn't about how many new people like an old game, it's whether or not any new people can play that old game period.

 

The fact they could play Shenmue and didn't like it, is a screaming success in terms of preservation.

 

EDIT: While a lot of games may not warrant any substantial effort to preserve, Shenmue isn't an example that.  The game was absolutely pioneering and earned its opportunity to not get lost to the channels of time quite yet, whether a generation of gamers fellating eachother to Fortnite streams has deemed it worthy or not.

Batman Arkham Origins is the best of the trilogy (I know it's not an official trilogy). Arkham Knight is overcomplicated, tedious and boring.

 

Arkham Asylum is a masterpiece but today it feels a bit rough around the edges and clunky. Arkham City was a disappointment for me - too all over the place, it had its moments but overall lacked the great pacing and direction of Asylum. The city looked bland. The story was stupid.

 

Origins does everything right for me - great pacing, visuals, atmosphere (wintertime, Chirstmas), boss fights!, verticality!, detective mode. It takes place at the beginning of Batman's career when people were still unsure if he was a hero or a villain. Underrated and underappreciated game understandably so because most people were tired of the formula.

Kids who play Fortnite nowadays weren't even born when Shenmue came out in the late 1990s. So it doesn't matter because they think that old game is shit anyways.

Welp, time to potentially piss off a few people, but here's some of mine:

  • Skies of Arcadia is insanely overly praised. I was looking forward to playing this game for years, and when I finally get around to it, it's just a standard JRPG with some air pirate shit thrown in. The battles, especially the ship battles, take so long and are so mind numbingly easy most of the time that I found myself often browsing the internet while in battles to stave off the boredom. I've played quite a number of JRPGs, including ones that are a lot older from the NES/SNES, etc. but usually battles in those games don't last for so painfully long. Aside from how sluggish it is, the characters really aren't that great or memorable, and the story is just standard JRPG flair for the most part. The only reason I really even mention this game is because I've been seeing some growing hype for a remaster/remake lately. I just hope if they do remake it, the battles don't take literally 1-2 hours like the final boss in the game took me.

 

  • Naughty Dog games are generally kinda bad, coming from someone that's played most of them. Jak 2 and 3 were fucking awful, and the Uncharted games might as well just be movies with some predictable gameplay and Tomb Raider climbing thrown in. The original Crash games were fun but just felt like corridor obstacle courses, Spyro felt like it had its own little worlds to explore. Last of Us was kinda boring, haven't even touched the 2nd game yet but I sadly know most of the spoilers now.

 

  • The Nintendo Switch is the most overrated console I've ever seen. It has inherit hardware issues (e.g. joycon stick drift), the base console is way too big and bulky for comfortable handheld use or travelling, half of its major library is just ports/remasters, and the new games it does have have often been rather disappointing for me. I really just don't get the hype, personally. I guess if you didn't have a Wii U there's a lot of new content on the Switch, but as someone that's had every Nintendo console since the N64 and Gameboy Color, it's very lacklustre for me.

 

 

Man I loved Skies on the DC when it was new, Not sure about now.

 

Naughty Dog, Never finished any of their games except tlou.

 

Lol, I think so many people feel bad that they paid so much for it. Except for kids because their parents paid for it.

I have to correct you here: Naughty Dog never made any Spyro games. Original Spyro trilogy was made by Insomniac Games, Enter The Dragonfly was made by Check Six GamesA Hero's Tail was made by Eurocom & The Legend Of Spyro Trilogy were made by Krome Studios & Etranges Libellules. & I have to agree with you Jak 2 & 3 were kinda the same game (same open world hub, different missions).

Don't think that's an unpopular opinion. The majority of the CoD community and the overall gaming community hated the futuristic CoD games.

Souls games are not that difficult, you just have no patience

 

I agree with you on one hand since Soulsborne games aren't for everyone, especially people that want a fast paced action game and expect to get that with Soulsborne games (had a couple of friends that couldn't make it past the first area in Bloodborne because of this).

 

Though on the other hand, I think you confuse patience with determination. If you're patient in a game like this all you do is wait for the inevitable. Either you beat that boss or you die and come back to try again. It takes determination to actually come back to that boss for the tenth, twentieth or fiftieth time and try it again.

 

Imagine you want to play the guitar. You can have all the patience in the world but if you don't have the determination to move onwards and pick up your guitar and practice you will never learn how to play in the first instance.

Never said they did. Was just using it as an example since they were both pretty big at the time, and I preferred the platforming style in Spyro over Crash, personally. Not been a huge fan of Insomniac's more recent games though.

Cuphead is an absolutely beautiful, bad game.

 

If the visuals were more generic, it would be a 4/10 at best. 
 

It is the definition of a polished turd.

Correct. I don't consider myself to be a good gamer but even I managed to plat all 3 souls and and Bloodborne, not hard at all. 

 


Okay, here's mine, I feel some of these will piss people off, but these are my opinions, I can't emphasis that enough:

 

-Metal Gear Solid 2 is the best in the series and 3 is one of the worst.

-Undertale is not as good as people say, only one good thing came out of that game and that's megalovania.

-Grand Theft Auto IV is a much better game than V. 

-Saints Row 3 > GTAV

-The Witcher games are overrated, as are CD project Red.

-PSP > PSVita, I know there are a lot of Vita fans here but the PSP was a better handheld with a much better library of games. Still love Vita though, it game me P4G.

-Final Fantasy XIII gets way too much hate, I loved every minute of that game. 
-Final Fantasy X-2...you guessed it, also gets to much hate despite it being a fantastic game. 

-I don't know if this is unpopular but I see many people begging Nintendo on Twitter for Sinnoh remakes but Pokemon Diamond and Pearl are the worst games in the series and don't deserve remakes. Skip straight to Black and White 2 remakes please. 

-Bethesda are the most overrated dev ever and are not worth the money Microsoft paid. $7.5b...lol wut... 

-Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD wasn't that bad.

Red Dead Redemption 2- Beautiful world. Shit game. Story is hot garbage and gameplay is a slog. RDR1 is VASTLY better in every regard minus graphics. Also the new mico money focused R* is a joke compared to their glory days of GTA San Andreas/Manhunt and so on. While i'm at it GTAV can be slotted right next to this comment. Same issues. Story is ehhhh(better then RDR2 at least) but San Andreas was better.

The Last of Us 2 is really bad. The clickers pose pretty much ZERO threat unlike the first game and the entire Abby aspect is horridly paced and over all forced as all hell. Not to mention is seems Niel Druckmann hated Joel or something cuz just about anyone other then like 3 people in the whole game completely shit on Joel for saving Ellie at the end of first game. Hell if you compare the viewpoints of Abby/Joel/Ellie you will see they are pretty much the exact same idea but somehow Joel is the enemy.

Abby- OMG you killed someone to save a girl and my revenge is 100% justified.
Joel- I saved a girl i traveled pretty much the entire country with and fought life and death with and built a loving relationship with her and chose to save her instead of spinning the wheel with her life. Not justified

Ellie: F You Joel. You took that choice away from me and idc why you did it or because we love each other. You're a asshole through and through.- Justified

 

I honestly think the whole game was not about revenge but how much they can shit on Joel's character.

Why are people sharing popular opinions on this thread now? It's supposed to be unpopular opinions.

 

Saying "The Last of Us 2 sucked" is a popular opinion.

Ratalaika gets shit on far more than they deserve. Sure, they may overdo it with the crazy amount of stacks and super easy plats, but some of their games are actually quite enjoyable. I really enjoyed 36 Fragments of Midnight for example

I love when a game adds dlc long after the main game is released

 

For 3 reasons:
 

1. It gives a good reason to go back to the game

2. It shows the dev cares enough to pull me back

3. It makes the 100% much rarer for the completionist leaderboards! ;):P 

See this kills me, because I tend to lose all ability to function in a game if I havent played it in a few weeks let alone months.

 

Literally have all the Spiderman DLC sitting there but havent played it as I cant get through the first mission in it :|

Red Dead Redemption 2 was the biggest let down of this console generation. The multitude of mechanics sapped the fun out of it and made it a chore to play. And as for RDR Online,that was a greed filled train wreck where Rockstar tried to copy the GTA Online formula for milking players for microtransactions.

Last of Us 2 is fine in terms of gameplay. Story is where the divide happens.I don't think it's THAT bad but my interest in the story was killed when it got spoiled.

Out of all the Final Fantasy games I've played, IX was the worst. And I've played XIII...and XIII-2.

Companies should be limited to releasing 2 versions of a game - a standard one and then an ultimate one that contains any and all post launch content that has or will be released. Any company that releases an "Ultimate" edition which doesn't contain everything should be fined and the CEO should be made to write out the dictionary definition of ultimate 1000 times as punishment. Looking at you, Vermintide 2.
