Unpopular Gaming Opinions

I searched far and wide before creating this thread, but I don't see one of these in the Video Game Discussion forum. Post your unpopular opinions specifically related to Video Games :)

I'll start: One-Winged Angel is overrated. The Latin choir is cool, but the dissonant clarinets are more annoying than anything.

Animal Crossing is dull. I got bored with it within a month.

Bathesda games are overrated and ugly. Their main quests suck and their worlds are fairly hollow. And "you can just forget about the main quest" should never be a selling point.

I had the first one for the Gamecube, but quickly realized investing in the rest of the series wouldn't be sustainable. Come to think of it, even with the first one I think I spent more time playing the included NES games rather than the game itself. Character designs are adorable though :)

Wild World is pretty boring other than creating constellations. The graphics are really bad and I get that hardware limitations was a thing but New Leaf looks way better in comparison and there were games for the DS that had 3D graphics out at the same time that looked really good such as Super Mario 64 DS.

Mega Man Battle Network 4 is alright. It introduced some cool mechanics such as the souls.
To be fair though, there are some typographical errors, and some of the worst glitches are in the game.
Other than that, it's fine. The difficulty increase to collect everything is a bit mixed on me.

Fire Emblem Fates is not a bad Fire Emblem.
Say whatever you want about the story, which I have my own mixed feelings on, but they did make some really good choices.
Having classes regardless of gender (before they switched back), and having different classes depending on path were good ideas.

Dragon Quest 11 music isn't bad when it's orchestrated (I know about the composer issue).
The boss theme, for example, sounds kind of gurgled when it's in MIDI format, but it's good enough when orchestrated.
Some emotional themes, and the extended regular battle theme are really good in the game.

Mortal Kombat got way too violent. I'm not opposed to violence in video games, but they took it a bit too far.
I remember getting impaled in one of the first ones because I sucked at it, and that was fine, but then it became torture porn at this point.

Mario Kart Wii had the last good unlocking system that actually makes you want to do all cups/all difficulties.
The new Mario Karts focus way too much on coin collecting.

Crash never had a good chance for Smash.
The only Western Third Party (W3P) that had any representation with characters was Microsoft.
Bethesda and Ubisoft had some special priviledges with costumes, and you had some indie representation here and there.
Other than that, I never saw Crash as anybody who just had to be in the game, and I think his chances were slim anyway.

This is gonna be good:

1. Pokémon Red & Blue are trash.
2. Mario games tend to be pretty overrated.
3. First Person Shooters are dumb.
- My one exception is Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. That game is lit.
4. The Nintendo Switch is better than any console could ever be, simply by being a hybrid.
5. Playstation 3 was far better than Playstation 2.
6. All Xbox consoles suck.
7. Pokémon fans are far too easily pleased, myself included.
8. Fighting game fans are impossible to please, myself included.
9. The Legend of Zelda series was boring as s*** before Breath of the Wild.
10. Console is better than PC. I said what I said.

Mortal Kombat got way too violent. I'm not opposed to violence in video games, but they took it a bit too far.
I remember getting impaled in one of the first ones because I sucked at it, and that was fine, but then it became torture porn at this point.

Fun fact, Ed Boon has noted the reason Mortal Kombat games are so outrageous is because it places them in the "Fantasy Violence" category, which keeps them from being banned in the US, Canada and Europe. They've had to edit out certain fatalities because they were too realistic.
