I keep trying to get into Assassin's Creed, but the worlds feel so empty to me. Outside of "hey lookit that jumpy guy!" every NPC is a faceless, nameless, no-dialog shell. It makes sense if we are re-living the flashbacks of an ancestor who never spoke to those people, but not once do I feel like I am actually in that ancient world. The same goes for the glittery white effects every few seconds, and the "sync lost!" going red- again, I know I am playing a memory, but I never, ever, ever, feel like I am an Assassin in the middle ages. I feel like I am playing a man watching a video about the middle ages, with the boom mic visible, and extras wearing wrist watches and answering cellhphone calls midway through.
I'd prefer if you enter the memory, then PLAY IT open world- if you die, that's when the game says "wait, it didn't happen like that!"

i don't want white and silver Matrix-crap flying over everything half the time.

Kingdom Hearts for the PS2
I've been trying to play this game recently, and I just can't for the life of me understand why anyone could think this is a good game. I mean, I like the concept, and seeing Disney characters run around with you is cute, but the gameplay is just awful. The battling is too chaotic (especially when you're looking to use items like potions), the camera swings around so wildly you can hardly ever see what it is you're even trying to battle, the platforming is awful, the rail shooter aspect in the gummi ship is terrible as well, and, worst of all, the game oftentimes gives you almost no hints of what it wants you to do in a given environment. It has very nice (for the time it was released) graphics, a lovely soundtrack, and an intriguing premise, but the game is borderline unplayable at times.

The Gummi Ship part is terrible, but you're wrong on all other counts. The battles are actually quite controlled. I haven't the slightest clue how you can say otherwise. You rarely fight more than a few enemies at once, and it's easy to tell where they are and what they're gonna do. You also very rarely need to use potions. Donald Heals you pretty frequently, and you get your own heal spell fairly quickly. The camera takes some getting used to, but you eventually learn to control it like a boss once you've gotten the hang of it. The only time I can recall there being areas where I didn't know what to do was in Wonderland, and honestly, that was the point of Wonderland. It's a place where anything can happen. It just requires some experimentation. It also helps if you've seen the movie and know how it goes. Overall, the sense of discovery outways the time spent figuring it out. As for the platforming, again, once you get used to the camera, platforming becomes pretty easy.

If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

If I haven't posted in awhile, it's probably because I'm with friends.

Enemies swarm all over the place, even in one little area. Also, the enemy encounters are HORRIBLY repetitive. I can't walk five steps in an area without a new group of Heartless popping out of the ground to become a nuisance. Opening menus should pause in-game action. Instead, I have to run far away enough from a strong enemy that I can heal without getting tackled. And what's with the camera being controlled by the shoulder buttons, anyhow? Camera control is the sort of thing the dual analog sticks are perfect for.
Nothing in the game, gameplay-wise, has been enjoyable thus far. The opening island segment was a series of obnoxious fetch-quests, combined with extremely frustrating platforming. After you get to that town where you figure out what's going on, you have to run all over the place trying to figure out how to run in to Donald and Goofy. And then there was the HORRIBLE Wonderland level.

I plan on finishing the game, if only to be able to counter accusations that I haven't played enough of the game, but I've found nothing enjoyable about this game thus far (gameplay-wise, I mean).

Oh, also, the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity demo was just plain boring. I'd rather play that awful Monster Hunter 3 demo.

Kingdom Hearts gameplay is pretty mindless and the original was a real chore to finish.

Also, I've played Bethesda games for years and have never encountered any bugs in them. It's quite weird, like I'm the only person who wasn't invited to a party, even if that party turned out to have sucked.

I played the Elder Scrolls to completion on the Xbox with no problems that I remember. I had a friend playing the same game and his froze up while saving. He says he lost so much progress he'll never play it again. I guess I have to consider myself lucky.

Just FYI: Enemies won't stop you from moving forward. Just in case you didn't know. It's helpful to fight most enemies, but you don't have to. And battles become more fun once you get more special attacks and magic.

I'm hoping it becomes less of a chore later on. At least now I know why I dropped it like a hot potato when I first tried it years and years ago.

Maybe the difference is that I play all Bethesda games on PC, and never right after they're initially released ($60 is too much to pay for a video game, I'm sorry).

I know, but I can't do that. I'm extremely OCD about doing everything in a certain area before moving on.

Hopefully. Like I said, I'll play the game to completion, which should give me a good sense if this game is just a VERY late bloomer or if this series just isn't for me.

Also (in KH), you can map spells to a shortcut menu. Just keep Cure (or it's successors) in there, and you shouldn't have to deal with the unwieldy nature of the full menu at all.

This isn't the "State games you disliked then recieve a counter-arguement" Topic, It's the "Games you disliked that everybody else liked" Topic. Nobody is wrong here.

Fire Emblem Awakening... It just doesn't deliver as a SRPG for me. I ended up playing through half of the darn thing and it still didn't hit me as "amazing" or "best 3DS game."

Now then...

Different franchise and hardware but there really isn't anything else for me in terms of SRPG considering this is my biggest guilty pleasure. Oh god... Those mechs...

I'm impressed there's someone else on this site who cares about the SRW series. I really gotta grab that new OG game, but I don't have $100 to drop on it yet. :(
