    I was talking to some friends about what I like and don't like in games and was wondering what are some of your opinions about games, game series, etc. that are not popular opinions.

    For example here are just 3 of mine.
    Dark Souls 2 is better than Dark Souls 3
    Smash 4 is a disappointment
    And my most controversial opinion.... Breath of the Wild is not a great Zelda game and to me was a bit of a let down.

    The purpose of this is to not insult what people like to see the other side of a coin.

    Be respectful and let's here some controversies.

    Duke Nukem Forever wasn't a bad game. It just didn't lineup to expectations.

    Battlefield is more rehashed than Call of Duty.

    Breath of the Wild is the worst mainline Zelda game.

    The CD-i Zelda games were decent. Persona as a series isn't that great, just barely above average for me. I'm probably the only person that thinks Tales of Xillia was a good game. Tales of Symphonia is overrated. I liked Halo Reach. I enjoyed the hell out of Pokemon's 5th gen games.

    Piracy does affect sales, especially for smaller publishers.

    All the Nintendo consoles' controllers, excluding Switch, have aged poorly and are nearly unplayable except for the Game Cube.

    Wanting to include female developers at all costs, no matter the skill level, just because they're female, is ruining the gaming industry.

    The mobile gaming industry deserves a chance.

    Pokémon games are greatly overrated.

    Star Fox Adventures is the best Star Fox game in the series
    All FPS games are the same
    Animal Crossing is overrated
    Smash Bros 4 is better than Brawl and Melee in every way (game mechanics, movesets, hitboxes, etc)
    Fire Emblem is nothing more than fan service games for weeaboos/animu fans
    The Witcher series is also boring and overrated

    Man, this is cathartic to express

    - "Remastered" games in 4K resolution are nothing more than games to get graphics whores' jollies
    - 4K gaming doesn't make games more enjoyable
    - Nintendo sticking to cartridges during the N64 was a dumbass decision and should've gone with CDs instead
    - Final Fantasy XIII and all its iterations are garbage

    :wtf: That's not even a thing that's happening, let alone ruining the games industry.

    The pay-to-win lootbox design actually worked for Mass Effect 3.
    Mass Effect 3 is the best of the series and the ending controversy was overblown.

    You'd be surprised at how adamant people are to defending 4K gaming, FFXIII, etc.


    Oh and I wanted to say all Final Fantasy games past FFX are absolute shit, there :creep:

    I don't think this is controversial, just pure ignorant stupidity.

    I heard plenty of people say ff13 sucks. Not really controversial.

    Xillia is easily my favorite in the series. Symphonia is the FFVII of "Tales of..."

    Super Mario Odyssey is a solid meh, its moons completely devalued by their quantity and how they're given to the player for little more than turning on the game. It's as though every Red Coin in Super Mario 64 were made into a star, and it just really takes away from what would otherwise be an enjoyable 3D platformer for me. It's not a bad game, but it's by no means a 10/10, or the crown jewel it's been made out to be.

    I found "the last of us" to be rather boring.

    I don't think it's a terrible game,

    I just find the characters, world and overall plot to be pretty dull.

    We get it, you're sad, she's sad, sad stuff happens, we see you do stuff together, so I guess I'm supposed to magically care about you now?

    I like zombie stuff, I like character drive story games, I'm fine with sad stories.

    But sorry, I just can't get into this.
