PostSubject: Games that everybody loves (except you)   Fri Jul 18, 2014 9:35 pm

I think there are games that are universally acknowledged as being must play games, games that any serious gamer is supposed to have played at least once. Now I'm going to say that it's ok if you happen not to like one of these games. You probably had high expectations and you've been told so much about how great the story is and so on and so forth...

Anyway, here I am tonight, officially giving up on the Mass Effect series. I wish I tried getting into these games back when they first came out... Things might have been different six or seven years ago. Mass Effect 1 feels old and even if 2 looks less dated the game play is nothing to write home about (probably my fault for having played a few real 3rd person shooters).

Maybe it's my fault for playing too many Bioware games in the past but I can see the formula at work and playing ME it feels pretty generic, in other words once you can see the cogs the magic is gone. I do like the setting but the whole chosen hero/spectre bla bla bla gets old terribly fast.

So what does that leave me with? A game that I have to force myself to start and that is hogging some of my disk space for the only reason that it is almost universally revered among CRPG fanatics.

It just doesn't click with me and add the annoyance of having to log in to take advantage of the DLC and the cumbersome EA thingy and you have a recipe for a game that feels too much like the idea of getting a colonoscopy instead of having fun.

So what about you, is there a game that most people love but that to you feels too much like making a visit to the dentist's?

I haven't been able to get into the Witcher series. It took me three or four attempts to get through the first one. I bought the second, and have started it twice. At this point, I've given up on the franchise. You can't force yourself to like something. I don't hate it; it just feels more like work than play.

I don't like Skyrim.  Very Happy  I'm sorry it's not a must play game. I think it was overhyped. Smile

Overhyped and especially overrated!

I've managed to soldier through Mass Effect at last.

It turns out that all the things I've pointed out back in 2014 are still true but some mods really helped.

Mass Effect 1 is a pain when it comes to repetitive stuff that are bloody annoying but despite all these faults it's still a Bioware game. Looking at how their games have evolved and drawing parallels between the Mass Effect series and Dragon Age I'm not surprised that Dragon Age Inquisition has turned out to be what it is now.

I do believe that Mass Effect Andromeda will be a lot like Dragon Age Inquisition but I'm not sure it will be so terrible considering that what is a bad thing for Dragon Age (dumbing down an RPG into an action oriented power fantasy) is a bad thing for Mass Effect (let's face it, Mass Effect 3 is already a third person shooter with RPG elements).

I may believe that would work better for Mass Effect, I still wish they wouldn't apply the same recipe to Dragon Age.

1. Oooh, interesting thread, and nice excavation work. Wink

2. Bloody 'Gone Home'. I... might go on a rant here. A little. For a while.

3. To elaborate: normally I enjoy indie games, especially the subversive and inclusive ones. 'Gone Home' was lauded as both. I found it to be neither the former, nor the latter.
Avast! Thar be spoilers ahead!:
 
It's not about it being an exploration game: it's about the fact that the secrets to be explored were too damn typical to be of any interest, at least to me. Ah, and for a game that is supposedly feminist, it certainly had no qualms about employing some problematic tropes for middle aged, hetero women: as evidenced by what can be found in her room, the mother
Arrrr!:
 
That's... all that the player can find out about her, more or less.

Well, let's just say I was not exactly impressed.

I played the Infamous first game on PS3. I thought it was a garbage mess, couldn't stand it for more than 15 minutes (good thing it was free with the purchase of the PS3 system). But apparently, most people who have played it raved about it. scratch
