@Knighty_IX Your criticism is quite fair mate. You are right about Megaman Zero having a better story, since even if the ZX games were left on a cliffhanger, the Zero games were solid in that aspect since the first entry. The awful voice acting didn't help too haha.

I do think that the open world made the game better, but I definitely see why Megaman ZX left you a sour taste haha. More than anything, I always enjoyed that Megaman Zero had a similar aspect (if I remind correctly, or maybe it was one of the sequels) and I really wanted to see more open world exploration return, and when I also found out that you could actually get the armors and power (and not just a small bit of it) I was pretty much sold out since that was something I wanted to have since I played Megaman X and saw how awesome Storm Eagle looked.

I also agree about the transformation being better in ZX since I actually liked more the idea of getting the armor combined than turning completely into the enemy you just defeated, but I did enjoy the idea of having way more transformations than in the last game and more of them were quite fun to try in different misions. Some of them are quite limited in movement though.

If they would have implemented the idea of getting the armor adjusted to the main character's movement to give him more mobility instead of limiting it with some models, it would have been perfect for me. Fortunately, at least the original biometals ( H,F,L and P if I remember correctly) did offer good mobility and different abiities, but they definitely had room to improve. H and P not so much, they were pretty much perfect for me the way they were made haha.

Other M, ME: A (It was fine for what it was) , The ENDING of ME3 (the series had more problems, LONG before you beat 3).

Agreed with @spizzamarozzi on the Fallout 3 hate. No it wasn't interplay's fallout but it wasn't bad for resurrecting a game franchise and slapping a whole new genre on it. (Didn't like 4 though)

Edit: Agreed with all the people saying NintendoLand. I was sold my wiiu by Nintendoland and I still play it on the regular (If the afterlife was real...that's where I want to go).

Most definitely Skyward Sword. I can understand someone not liking it as a Zelda game, but to say it's bad game seems ridiculous to me. The narrative is great, with one of the best incarnations of Zelda and one of the series' best side characters in Groose. The environments, although small, are beautiful and imaginative, and the dungeons had some very unique puzzles and bosses.

Two additions:

Phantom Hourglass - I agree, once you get past the eyesore that is the Temple of the Ocean King and the fact that Bellum on its own is kinda meh, it isn't a bad game and is in fact one of the better DS games out there. I don't think it holds up as well when compared to most of the Zelda series, but is still a decent game in its own right.

Also, Linebeck.

Spirit Tracks - This one catches a lot of flak as well, but IMO it fixed some of what was wrong with its predecessor. I found the controls less awkward, the Tower of Spirits was set up better, and I found more of the bosses memorable. The train travel was unique and enjoyable at times, and IMO the complaints about it being "restrictive" in terms of exploration are overblown. This is barely a problem if you unlock the optional tracks. Also, Zelda as a Phantom is quite enjoyable and has her helping you in a more active role than in most games (though she hadn't been the typical "damsel in distress" in most of the series).

Tbh I found both DS Zelda games to be phenomenal. Spirit Tracks is one of my favorites in general

First of all, Wind Waker. It's looked at better now but still people complain about the triforce quest and the cartoony graphics, but I have no problem with those. I had lots of fun sailing around, and as for the graphics, I absolutely love them and all the characters emotions.

Nintendoland - This always gets hated way to much. It's really fun and has great minigames that take hours to complete. I really like the Metroid games, beating it with some friends is so fun. Also the battle mode is great too. Some games are pretty bad, like the Animal Crossing one, but the games it does have that are good truly are fun.

Amiibo Festival - I'm not saying this is the best game or anything because it certainly isn't, but I actually enjoy it. I bought it for about $15 and it's really one of the best digital board game I have played. I love the fact you pretty much gamble for turnip prices and really puts a good spin on things.

Minecraft -Feel like I don't even need to talk about this one because if you have actually played it for yourself you will see it's actually a relaxing fun game to play. Sure the fanbase is bad sometimes, but that's what it is for any big game.

Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer - Again, hated for being different than a "normal Animal Crossing" style game. I almost have as much hours in this as I do New Leaf because on the go it's fun for me to meet the needs of the people by building houses and schools for them. The game starts off slow but once you get into it and unlock a lot more it turns into a sandbox like game and is pretty good.

Honorable Mentions - Skyward Sword, Just Dance, Xenoblade X, and 1-2 Switch. Everyone else covered these well so I don't have much else to say about it.

I agree with Nintendo Land. Really fun game and a lot more depth then you'd think. One of those Wii U games that wasn't fully appreciated because it was on the Wii U.

Also, Mario Pinball Land. It definetly deserves some criticism for being hard and unforgiving, but if you get passed that the game is a really fun game, it's like Mario 64 in pinball form. Graphics are amazing for a GBA game too.

Pokémon Sun and Moon - My favourite 3DS Pokémon games for sure. I think the trials are a clever way to change up the usual 8-gym format, Alola has some cool areas, there are some great new Pokémon as usual, and the storyline is decent for a Pokémon game, with some really interesting characters like Guzma, Lusamine, and Gladion.

Star Fox Zero - This is the only Star Fox game I've played and I didn't love it (I found it pretty forgettable and had no desire to return to it after the short campaign) but I didn't have a problem with the controls at all, and there were some fun vehicles and bosses in there.

Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks - Not much else to say that others haven't already said, but PH in particular is one of my favourite Zelda games.

I mostly agree, but there's no way I could justify the time spent sailing around in the original release nowadays (and even back then, it was a bit much). So thankful Wind Waker HD exists and fixed that, it let me appreciate the sailing in ways I wouldn't have been able to nowadays. And purists can't even complain about it, since the Swift Sail is optional.

Nintendo Land is in fact, better than Wii Sports in nearly every way, and thus is a reminder that life isn't fair.

@AlternateButtons Word for word exactly how I feel about the game. Thank you!

That said, I understand peoples' gripes with it. And it makes sense that BOTW is as loved as it is. It's like the complete antithesis of everything Skyward Sword did. So fans of SS probably aren't as in love with a game like BOTW as most others

@AlternateButtons I agree 100%. I never understood the hate for Skyward Sword. It is hands down one of the best Zelda games. The only complaints I would hear were that the Motion controls didn't work which wasn't true, I never had any issues with them, they always worked great for me. And how linear it is, which isn't a bad thing IMO. The story actually had me invested in it and for a Zelda game thats rare.

Also SS has the best dungeon design in the series to date, Every single dungeon/temple in SS was pure fun.

The only real complaint I have with it is the imprisoned. I will never understand why they though we would wanna do that fight 3 times. Never.

The motion control complaints in Skyward Sword are definitely overblown IMO, but not completely unfounded. The only move I ever had trouble performing with the controls was the thrust attack, which is integral to a couple of encounters. The Moldarach boss was an absolute pain almost every time I fought it/one. Also, some of Link's poses with the motion-controlled sword were a little weird for me sometimes, but this had nothing to do with the game itself (I'm left-handed ).

But yeah, I agree entirely with all of the positives outlined above. As for the negatives....Yeah, The Imprisoned absolutely sucked.

Speaking of NintendoLand, do you people remember all the flak The Wonderful 101 got when the demo was first released?! I remember people going "I would have bought it...if the controls didn't suck!!". We were really at the zenith of the Nintendo negativism at that point - basically everything they did, people had to complain about something. Even the loading times were reason enough NOT to buy a game.

While basically nowadays it's the opposite. But it'll be all doom and gloom again in 5 years. And back to unconditional love again 5 years after. Cos that's how people function.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star (Not my favorite, but I've definitely played games a lot worse than this)
Paper Mario: Color Splash ("Wehh!! It's Sticker Star 2!! -99/100!!" True, but it fixed a lot of problems.)
Mario Party 9 (The Car mechanic wasn't fun, but the mini games were)
Mario Party 10 (Same for 9, except that the car mechanic worked out better in Bowser Party)
Skyward Sword (My favorite 3D Zelda even today. Controls take some time getting used to.)
Star Fox Zero (Aside from the motion controls at times, it was pretty good...for me, at least)
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (Gameplay wise, this is a more complete version of BIS' battle system)
Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam (The story, characters, and environments could've been better looked at, but this game ended up being good in the end!)

Edit:

Animal Crossing: City Folk (So disappointed with Wild World and I expected City Folk to be the same. I was wrong. It had more content to make up for the lack of GCN features that WW did, plus each player had their own house that time as opposed to all players being stuck like roommates. CF didn't wow me as much as GCN and now NL, but at least it felt more like a complete version of a game)
Pokémon Sun/Moon (No idea why people were disappointed with this. I mean, the changes these games did are what got me back into this series after HGSS. No more of those dated HMs, no more of those dated Gyms, etc. I wasn't disappointed at all...plus, I was born in Hawaii, so that gets bonus points as well...)

This is just the start for me. I feel that there's more, but this is all I have.

Metal Gear Solid V, its crucified by the fanbase, but I personally think its ok, 1-3 is still better tho.

@StephenYap3 Oh my god, totally agree with Dream Team. I played through that whole game and never felt anything was out of place or boring. Really fun game, and the criticism I see I just can't understand. Do people really hate the visuals that much???

Paper Jam was really weak though. I can understand why someone would like it but nah not for me.

People might think I'm childish for my picture, and I am.

To be fair...

the demo did a terrible job to get anyone who wasn't already going to buy the game to...convince them to buy the game. Expecting people to just "get" Wonderful 101, is completely absurd. I love the game, but the demo (and the game itself tbh) does NOT do a good job of getting people into its combat system. I'm just thankful I saw enough positive things from people I like that changed my mind after the demo concerned me.

I'm calling this the Internet Nintendo Effect.


Pokemon Battle Revolution - This game is average at best, but it's by no means bad. I got some enjoyment back in the day, but that was mainly because I had the handheld games to back me up. This was the game's biggest flaw, IMO.
