Y’know guys, games can be bad even if they aren’t broken. Go look at Beastly (Wii) XD. It’s perfectly functional.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

Okamiden: Worthy sequel of Okami. Not as good as the first one, but really close and even better in some aspects like the boss battles. The thing is on th DS and somehow it managed to deliver the same quality that it's predecessor had, and much better than any Zelda game on DS and even the ones on 3DS (IMO).

Metroid Prime Federation Force: Game that had the gameplay of the Prime games while having a new direction focused on missions and squad gampelay while also having a good single player experience in case you didn't have anyone to play with. Considered a game that shouldn't be "Metroid", I disagree since using Samus or having an open world focused on single player as mandatory to explore was something made up by fans hating on the game. It simply expanded the Metroid universe in a fresh different way, while keeping familiar elements and it also showed that Samus wasn't the only one having action. In my opinion, it's only considerable problem was the art direction.

Mass Effect Andromeda: Massive hate for a game that while it wasn't as good as the original trilogy in terms of story, it delivered better gameplay with much more fun powers and deeper customization. Considering that it was the first entry of the story (which would be the fair thing to do), it delivered a better experience than the first game of the original trilogy.

Megman ZX Advent: More than anything, people simply don't know of it's existence but still, I see hate against it for having protagonists that weren't Megaman or Zero. The story isn't the best, but I never considered the Megaman games to have a great story in the first place. The gameplay is wesome though, since it offered open world exploration and the ability to transform into the boss you defeated, not only giving you their power but also their apperance and different attack combinations, making it better than Megaman Zero in terms of gameplay (IMO).

Fire Emblem Fates: Game hated for having the same mistakes that most FE games had ( for me most had a decent at best story, same with the characters) while also offering the most balanced experience between the mew mechanics introduced in Awakening and a game with a better average difficulty since most broken aspects of it's predecessor were corrected and improved. Better gameplay, many cliché characters (just as the past games as much hate as I get) but likeable and with more interactions, better graphics, mostly good maps, great soundtrack and tons of content made it my favourite FE game to date.

Another unpopular opinion: I think that Corrin was pretty much as good as most protagonists and didn't have problems with him, and I also think that Conquest was far superior than Birthright, even in story most of the times.

(which is basically just a glorified Zero Mission hack that doesn't do much to progress Metroid. A good game? Absolutely. But it's just a fangame)

I strongly disagree with this, and ignoring anything else, the fact that a fan could make a glorified Zero Mission-like Metroid is an incredible achievement.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

Phantom Hourglass - The temple of the ocean king was definitely annoying but everything else in this game was brilliant.

Final Fantasy 8 - Very few people seem to have good memories of this 20 years later. It's story is silly nonsense but it is an incredibly solid game for the most part. Great world, graphics and gameplay. And the ballroom scene is timeless.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 - At a metacritic score of 75, this is one of the lowest scored in the series. I really have no idea why. I thought it was completely brilliant. Probably my third favourite in the whole series after RE4 and RE2.

Star Fox Zero - Once you manage to get over the control issues, this is a really great game. If you just look at the main screen 95% of the time, it works great.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 - Yeah these games haven't aged well but I still find them a lot of fun. I think the treasure hunting stages, mech stages, and even Amy's stages to be a lot of fun.

Fire Emblem Fates - Yes, the story is crap, and the cast is one of my least favorite in series history. However, what ultimately matters most is gameplay and this game has it in spades.

Ah the ZX series... they're great, I personally prefer the Zero series more than the ZX series but they were both solid entries nonetheless.

Aww yeah it's time to Rock On! (RIP Model X ),
I wish there was an anime series too

I didn't mind the new characters, Model A was pretty interesting to use with the Homing Shots and the Giga Crush attack is always a blast, and at least choosing between Ashe and Grey made some minor gameplay differences compared to the simple gender-swap in ZX. Although to be honest as soon as I obtained Model ZX, hardly bothered with Model A (at least Model a (Antique) is a pretty cool unlockable). The voice acting is awful, mostly dull and annoying and the poor sound quality doesn't help at all, at least the game has an awesome soundtrack.

In the Wind

Trap Phantasm

and Soul Ablaze come to mind

You can argue that Megaman games aren't known for incredible stories but I was definitely much more engrossed with the Zero series, in the end it made a much longer lasting impact to me than what the ZX series had to offer. Although, it's kinda unfair and unfortunate to make such a comparison since there's only two entries in the ZX series that ended with a cliffhanger, compared to four Zero entries that wrapped its story up with an epic conclusion.

I'm not sure how I feel towards the "open-world exploration" aspect, the map in ZX was very unhelpful and I got pretty bored of trying to finding my way around, thankfully I did not have this problem in ZX Advent but it already left a sour taste in my mouth. It's not a bad idea, it's just not what I was looking for in a Megaman game so I guess still prefer having tighter fast-paced linear level designs over exploration.

As for the transformations, I loved it in ZX, but not so much in ZX Advent I think they went WAY overboard with the idea. Just cut the Pseudoroids out please, sure some of them had some cool abilities but in general the novelty wore off of me pretty quickly that I rarely use the Pseudoroids until they're required for me to progress, they were clunky to control and gimmicky at best.

Super Mario Sunshine. Most of the criticisms tend to come from people who want the game to be a linear platformer, as a sandbox platformer it's one of the best since FLUDD opens up the potential for tons of creative platforming tricks. The only major flaw I would say is the Blue Coins.

Also Sonic 06. It definitely has glitches, but you rarely find anything game breaking.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate
Yeah, it's really different compared to the GBA and DS Castlevania Games, but i liked the Gameplay changes and it's one of my favorite Castlevania Games. Makes me really sad that so many people call this Game an abomination.

German Nintendo Fan. Please excuse my flawed english ;)

Anti-Matter

I think a lot of gamers don't like these games that i have interest about.

1. 1-2-Switch
Come on ! It's not really bad for Minigames compilation. I'm addicted with Telephone minigames after i bought last Sunday.

2. FF VIII
I think FF VIII was the Best FF in my opinion. Maybe not the Best in Storyline, but the gameplay was Interesting and Challenging enough. I miss the Simple and Modern outfits from FF VIII. They are so Classy, Elegant, Simple, Pleasant to watch.

3. Miitopia
A lot of RPG gamers dislike this game due to Uncontrolable other characters, but that gave the reason why was Miitopia so different with typical RPG games. I LOVE the Cuteness, Quirkiness and Craziness from Miitopia. Also, Miitopia has so many Great OST.

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series
2. The Sims series
3. Portal Knights Switch version
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS
5. ARMS

For the most part I really like Mirror of fate, it is much better than the other Lord of Shadows games (other Lord of Shadows games are not even barely average in my opinion), Mirror of fate could have been great but it is badly damaged by the way its story is told. First of all is a rather stereotyped and trivial plot, it was not necessary to put so much focus into it, a more straightforward way to tell that story would havew been much better, and it also BADLY damages gameplay since in the game there is an upgrade system that don't make sense at all since the game is split up into three different parts with three different characters... I like it a lot but at the same time it is so unbelievably flawed. The first time I played it I thought it was terrible. Then I tried playing it again and this time I was able to appreciated all the many things it does right, but unfortunately those many good things are affected by a few stupid and horrible design choices.

Just Dance games. I have been buying them annually for about 5 years now. I know most gamers aren't fans but I love these games. Always fun playing with friends and family.

I agree with Other M. I thought it was a very good game. It laid solid foundations for a sequel. It made some mistakes, I've and we've been over them countless times before.

Skyward Sword on the other hand deserves all the hate in the world. A truly bad and lazy Zelda game. I didn't like it at all, it had nothing to do with the motion controls but with practically everything else about it.

I find that the reasons people hate it are reasons I like it. shrug

Mario 3D Land. It didn't do a lot of new things but it was very nice for what it was. The controls were really precise and there were some great post game levels.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror gets some criticism for having a confusing layout but I don't think it was that bad. The map could have been better, yes. But once you enter the mirrors that link to the main hub, it gets much easier to find the mirror shards.

The years keep coming and they don't stop coming.

@MisterPi I'm totally with you regarding Skyward Sword - loved it from start to finish! I'd probably rate it as my third favourite Zelda game - just behind Ocarina of Time (the best) and Breath of the Wild (a modern classic) - simply one of the best games I've ever played!

Many of the games that have been reviewed by AVGN are wayyyy overhated:

-TMNT: I have never understood the exaggerated hatred for this game! Yeah, the seaweed level is tough, but it isn't impossible! Get through it, replenish your lost health in the next level. Do I think that it's a great game? Well.....yeah, actually! It has all of the hallmarks of a great game: it controls well, looks good, has fantastic music, is challenging (sometimes excessively so), and the boss fights are great!

-Friday the 13th (NES): Another game that receives way too much flak! I've always thought that this game was actually ahead of it's time! It doesn't follow a traditional level structure, and it had atmosphere for miles (by 1989 standards, at least). It's another game that controls well and, once you figure out how to fight Jason, it's a decent amount of fun. It has it's flaws, but to disregard it as a BAD game, or even one of the worst, is laughable.

-Fester's Quest (NES): Another game that has developed an unfairly poor reputation, most likely by people who follow AVGN as a legit gaming source. It's challenging, but very fun and unique.

-Deja Vu (NES): This is widely regarded as the worst of the MacAdventure games, but I've never understood why. It has a really cool story, and it's really cool piecing everything together!

I guess I'll be mostly repeating stuff.

Fire Emblem Fates
It probably wasn't the best idea to split it into three games but other than that I enjoyed it. Not as good as Awakening but not nearly as bad as people say it is.

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
The Temple of Ocean King is annoying but other than that, it's good. The touch controls work great and Linebeck is awesome.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
I admit I haven't beaten this one. There are certain things I don't like and I find it a bit boring at times but it has fun characters (other than Fi), nice visuals and the motion controls work great. It's not as great as most of the Zelda games but it's not a bad game.

Just Dance
I don't know why everyone has the need to say they hate these games whenever NL has news/reviews of them. Just Dance is not meant to be your next hardcore gaming purchase. I've been thinking of getting one for myself lately. Maybe it would help me lose a bit of weight.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE
Is it Shin Megami Tensei? No. Is it Fire Emblem. No? Is is a fun and unique RPG? Yes. Seriously one of the best games on Wii U but it gets hate for being different from what people were expecting. And add all the censorship backlash in the mix. The main thing that kind of irritates me with these censorship things is that people wouldn't even notice it if they didn't have the access to internet and learn these things in advance. Are people angry because Nintendo decided to release an entirely different game as Super Mario Bros. 2? No. Because they didn't know any better and once they played the game, they liked it so much that they didn't care once they found out about it.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

@Late the Just Dance games are great fun. Like you said they aren't a hardcore gaming experience but are a blast with friends or at a party. Also they can be a great way to work out with the sweat mode. My wife actually uses it in the mornings to work out when she doesn't feel like running in the cold. You can definitely work up a good sweat in no time!
