    are there any games you enjoy playing that are not considered "good" by the general census? cause from time to time i tend to have a soft spot for certain games despite their flaws

    I enjoyed Other M, for one. I also loved Sonic R as a child - still do, in fact. There's plenty of games that are widely considered "bad" that I enjoy/ed.

    Well you could argue that Mass Effect 3 was a bad game but because the previous two were good games, this makes Mass Effect 3 a bad girl you want to spend your time with. But you don't want her waking up next to you the following morning.

    yeah, i tend to like 3D Sonic games more then i'd like to admit, especially Sonic Adventures 1 and 2 even though there gameplay has not aged well by any means i kinda admire the level of ambition they had for the first one (the chao garden is still a lot of fun actually)

    another one is probably Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7, i know a lot of fans think the retcons are lame as hell but the game itself is still fun even though the battle system relies a little too much on luck, and in my opinion Zack Fair is a much more likable protagonist just cause he's not an emo git like Cloud or Squall, or an insufferable spaz like Tidus

    I have always loved, and still love, Final Fantasy Mystic Quest for SNES :3 It's easy, has a bad story, very linear... but I have fun playing it.

    I loved Crisis Core, one of my favourite PSP games of all time. Considering how sh*t future Final Fantasies turned out to be, Crisis Core's great.

    I think Metroid Other M is a good game.

    Crisis Core is terrible. And you should feel guilty for liking it.

    People should stop bitching about FFXIII - it was a great movie, I don't know why people hate it so much.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa; thread derailed. What in the final fuck are you guys talking about? I came here expecting an Angry Birds thread.

    The popular opinion is Crisis Core it utter shit. Ergo liking it would be a guilty pleasure.

    Angry Birds isn't a real video game.

    I really enjoyed the game Touch the dead for the DS. It wasn't perfect and looked like shit, but it reminded me of the old school rail shooters I grew up with.

    Why is Angry Birds so fashionable to criticise? It's a decent pick and play game.

    Seeing that you can play it for free these days, even $1 is a rip-off. :P
