@Heavyarms55 I agree, both in the storytelling aspect (as described), but also in design. I personally hate having to design my own character...I'd rather a professional did it for me! My own design will always look like trash in comparison.

@Buizel Purely in visual terms, I really like customizable characters. Within the limits of a story frame. Again, I feel Mass Effect did it best with Sheppard. It was still Sheppard's story, and Sheppard had a pretty defined character. But you still had a lot of freedom with what you could do. But I do understand your point, and that's why I think it's good to have some preset/pre-designed options as well.

I think protagonists should both have there own personalities but still have lots of customisation. Because while I like characters with deep personalities, I also don't want to have to play as, balanced sword guy in every rpg.

I consider myself a big RayMan fan, it's one of my favorite game franchise's.
But I really don't like the first RayMan. According to one of the devs, the game wasn't play tested. And, oh boy does it show.

@MegaSwitch I loved Rayman 1. A lot. Played it to about 70% completion without cheat codes as a teenager.

But the difficulty was pretty extreme, you can tell it was balanced by developers who were experts at their own game rather than having normal people play test it to see what they think. Takes practice for sure.

Disney's Toontown Online was the definition of a grind.

@Der It's an early MMO. They pretty much revolved around grinding.

Not sure if this counts as an unpopular opinion, but I would like to have a Yoshi's Story 2.

Unpopular Opinion, at least in my circle of friends.

Let people have some sort of accessibility to change the difficulty of the game. (' - ' ) Doesn't need to be crazy, even just little thing like "yeah you keep everything even if you die including your exp", or even the "half damage woohoo".

Like just little thing that can make a game more manageable.

I don't think the Chibi form from Metroid Prime Federation Force was really bad idea. It looked cute somehow.

@darkfenrir adding accessibility is fine and adding difficulty sliders is not a problem. it just that no one is entitled to it. You cant force developers do add it if they dont want to

darkfenrir

@diwdiws Indeed, not like I have any power to force them to. Just that I wish nearly everything has that option shrug

Although not sure if this fall under unpopular opinion, but I hate it when devs put in difficulty option... and decide player isn't allowed to get good ending/or even get any ending unless they pick harder difficulty. Ending shouldn't be tied to difficulty at all.

@darkfenrir I second that. In Octopath, I almost died against a duo boss fight in one chapter of the Ophilia. I think they were two guys with black hoods that use magic and a special ability to conceal their weakness.

darkfenrir

@SamusLv7 Oof I think I know that one. Every boss in Octopath is quite hard... especially when you are on Chapter 3/4. Or those hidden bosses. I already gave up after doing 2 of Chapter 4 bosses o)--< (and 1 hidden)

@darkfenrir True. I think the duo I fight was the boss of the third chapter of Ophilia. I guess I'll have to level grind when I continue playing again ūüėÖ as I am currently playing Zelda BotW and Mario + Rabbits.

Unpopular opinion: I don't like vague rumors from random, so-called sources and insiders. So-and-so thinks... Industry insiders suspect... So-called news source reports that (Nintendo) will probably do X...

I feel like that kind of vague speculation isn't worth it. But I guess it generates clicks and no one forces me to read it. But I am kinda sick of all the "thinks" "suspects" and "probably"s...

I agree with you 100%. Anyone can make a speculation, or fake leak.

I especially hate the Metroid Prime Trilogy rumor. Various "leakers" have been saying "It's right around the corner!" about 5 different times in the last year.

This. It's like people enjoy setting themselves up for disappointment. But yeah, I agree; these leaks are getting ridiculous. If I were in a position where I truly "knew" such things, I'd rather keep the trust of those involved intact versus netting myself fifteen minutes of fame on the internet.

Or maybe I'm just cynical today.
