@Ryu_Niiyama I honestly think, from the bottom of my heart, that ME2 is overrated to the extreme. It's a game that focused so much on telling individual character stories (which can be good at times, others not so much) that it forgets to have an engaging main story.

They decided to add some fodder enemy faction with no personality at all. When compared to the Geth from the first game they're honestly terrible. There is no nuance, simply bad guys.

I also believe Mass Effect 3 to be criminally underrated. It ended a huge amount of side-stories from the first two games very graciously with some great dialogue and moments. It also had an amazing soundtrack and controlled far better than ME2. The ending itself was a mixed bag but they patched it into being better and I honestly don't know what people were expecting other than what we got. The DLC was fantastic as well, tops ME2's DLC by a big margin in my eyes.

ME2 is still a good game, great even, but I never understood the hype.

Struggling to think of something really forgettable (so I must have played something really forgettable) so I'll say Kirby Triple Deluxe. It was alright. Just felt like I was constantly waiting for something more from it.

Hang on to your youthful enthusiasms - you'll be able to use them better when you're older.

Pretty much every Assassin's Creed game except for the first three. I've played them all. Every Far Cry game except for 3, Blood Dragon, and Primal. Every Call of Duty game outside of Modern Warfare 2019, and the first Modern Warfare (who can forget the Pripyat level?) campaign was really good. There are A LOT of indie games I've played over the years that are pretty forgettable. Over the 25+ years of gaming I'd have to sit and really think it through, but those are the recent ones that stand out.

@Varkster I agree. After spending 80 hours in the remasterd trilogy ME3 was way better than I remembered and I thought the endings were fine. I just don't like how easy ME3 was compared to the other two. It really felt refined and like BioWare took everything and made a "best-of" game. I think, and just like EVERYTHING in gaming that gets a lot of negative attention, people hated on ME3 because of the hate over the endings rather than the game itself and then no one remembers the game other than the hate so they automatically default to ME2 as "the best ME game" because it didn't get any hate. It's super dumb and I get so tired of this crap as it still happens to this day.

@ivory_soul Honestly if not for the driving sections being sub-par, the exploration feeling as empty and boring as it is and if they fixed or spread out some sections of the game that drag a little too long (especially the beginning at the Citadel), Mass Effect 1 would have by far been the absolute best in the series.

It introduced a crazy amount of content and lore; replaying the trilogy through Legendary Edition really opened my eyes how many things are memorable in ME1 and 3 as opposed to 2.

But hey, if people see something in 2 that I don't then all the power to them.

And yeah, unfortunately we live in a world where people will overlook a game's good qualities if there is one controversial thing that sticks out. Paper Mario Origami King suffered from this, since it's a great game with a clever story and some genuinely amazing writing (including some emotional moments) but everybody jumped the gun and bombed it since it wasn't what everybody wanted.

@Varkster It seems the opposite is happening with Metroid Dread. It's not Super Metroid 2? IT SUCKS! That's what I'm seeing. People just don't like change and series HAVE to evolve for them to stay relevant and fresh. ME Andromeda was a CHORE to play through. I put 40 hours into it and it was installed on my PC since launch and it took me until a few months ago to finally push through it. There's just so much there I didn't care about. ME2 was a breath of fresh air after I played that game.

@ivory_soul Oh boy, why did you torture yourself with Andromeda? I'm here criticising the story in ME2, Andromeda is 10x worse...

I'd have to say Bravely Default II. Not that it was a bad game by any means, but most of it just seemed like filler in a way, with the only good part being at the end.. and even then, the ending wasn't exactly the best either. The fourth wall break in particular, which was just a bit disappointing compared to how it was in the other 2 Bravely games. The only thing I genuinely remember about this game is the final boss and the final boss music.

I would also say something about Kirby Star Allies, but I can't forget that game, even if I wanted to. It kind of.. was the first game I ever had felt ripped off by.

Toree 3D is also somewhat forgettable, given that it's a really short 3D platformer, but I guess I can't really complain all that much, seeing as how the game was a dollar.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)
