Monster Hunter (based off of 3DS demo and brief time with Wii game) - Bland as tofu.

First off, the 3DS demo if far from indicative of the actual game. It is by far one of the worst demoes I've played, second only to the other Monster Hunter demoes out there. That is more down to the nature of the game, though. Monster Hunter's more about the feeling of growing stronger over time, and being immersed in a living world. You can't really convey those things in a demo that easily.

Monster Hunter Tri also eases you into the game, so the 1-star quests tend to be really easy, to the point where they just aren't fun. Monster Hunter's one you can't quite judge without putting a lot of time into it, though I can't blame you if you wouldn't want to give the game that kind of chance. It really is asking for a lot.

As far as I'm aware, there are no actions in a video game that allows a player to commit genocide.

Ethnic Cleansing. Had to mention it :/

My conclusion based on my own experiences and the internet is that EVERY 3DS demo is terrible.

Try a XENOBLADE CHRONICLES X LET'S PLAY now for the cost of nothing! : D

Resident Evil 4 (And I guess, by extension nearly every Resident Evil game since). I own every version of the game, but I still hate it. Sure, the tank controls in the original games were janky but those played a lot better than a glorified shooting gallery. And don't get me started on the blind hints because you can't see the enemies coming from behind. No game should require players to swing the camera around manically to see something somewhere is coming.

Zack and Wiki. I just felt this was a healthy serving of pecan blandies. Nothing made me want to purchase the title, except the glowing praise. So I gave it a shot. After two hours, it was retired to the shelf, never to be played again.

Dead Rising 2. I just hated this game. Ironically, I actually enjoyed Off the Record.

Anything by Bethesda really. I don't get it. They consistently release bug ridden products, often times unplayable (I'm looking at you "XXXX has come online" PS3 freezing bug) and people pretend like it's the gaming messiah. I've purchased every single one of their products (both original and GOTY flavors when available) on the off chance things will be better and I still toss them on the shelf disgusted. Large scale worlds =/= greatest game ever made.

Most of its games are infested with unparalleled quality, though at the same time, usually assaulted with game breaking bugs.

A few days ago, a friend experienced a few bugs in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (I've never played it before and thought the bug issues were exaggerated), and he'd been playing for approximately an hour and forgot to save, so the game twitched and he could not talk to villagers, activate his menus or crouch. That resulted in an hour of progress gone for no apparent reason.

Ludicrous.

With regards to the Elder Scrolls games; the vision and the cohesive lore built up over two decades creates a game world that is deeper and richer than any other game out there.

It's worth dealing with the bugs to experience.

Not worth dealing with the bugs/glitches imo. If Square,Nintendo or Sega had released games that resembled those in performance game mags along with the internet would have exploded with hate.

With all due respect for Nintendo, Square or Sega, none of them have produced a game with a tenth of the depth of an Elder Scrolls game, especially from Morrowond onwards.

Name a game you like, and I will do my best to disfigure it, hack it to bits, and mail you it's bloody remains.

The bugs do hold Bethesda's games back, but the experience is still wonderful enough that it's worth putting up with. I don't know how else to explain it that hasn't already been said. There really are no other games out there with as fascinating a world and lore as Fallout and Elder Scrolls - the only games I've played that come close are Metroid Prime (in terms of fascinating lore) and Xenoblade Chronicles (in terms of a large yet fascinating world). It really is a sight to behold, glitches or no glitches.

Those Bethesda games may be enjoyable for some but there is no excuse for them to be released with the amount of things that are wrong. Another sign of how lazy most western developers are.

I'm not saying it's excusable (though in their defense, games of this scale are bound to have bugs. It's not so much laziness as it is the nature of the beast they're taking on). I'm just saying it's still a good game despite the glitches (as it is with every game, btw. All games have at least some glitches).

The Correct Grammar Game.

You already have destroyed it.

Burn

I apologize, good sir. I must have gotten confused in my grammar. After all, it becomes very complex switching between the vocabulary and grammar rules of three different languages, all of which I speak fluently, in my head.

Please do point out my future mistakes.
