Who says a game sucks? What's the criteria? I hate when some moron reviews a game and gets it wrong. How can a review be wrong? Well for starters many people bashed Duke Forever. Oh, it's not modern enough, it's too demeaning, yadda yadda. Um it's Duke. Duh. I bought the game for about $20 and enjoyed it all. Screw the reviews, I knew what to expect and didn't spend $60 to find out. I hated RE4 for taking a good series and turning it into a shooter, however I liked RE5 better since the Move made it more a lightgun shooter. Lots of people said Hyperdimension Neptunia was crap but that too wasn't so bad. Maybe a little tedious near the end but I've played oldschool RPG's and that's nothing new to me. Also liked Enslaved and Madworld for what they offered.

In short I can look at a game or review and determine whether it's actually a poor game or just poorly reviewed. I was a fan of Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and Psychonauts before they became popular.

I thought DVvM was suppose to be the intelligent one out of the whole VGF.

Only problem I had with Chrono Cross was there was too many freakin' characters!

Enslaved is actually REALLY good. Whoever told you the game was bad was wrong. Wrong, wrong wrong wrong. :)

I played the demo for either Two Worlds 1 or 2. the dialogue put me off. i found the way people talked in it extremely annoying.

Don't know if this counts but I heard Dark Spore was aweful. I bought it anyway, ended up loving it.

Hellboy: The Science of Evil and 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. If I ever find either for six bux, it is a wrap.

I think that just proves the theory that no game is liked by everyone!

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 7, 2012 5:29:23 AM PST

The force unleashed. I have never gotten around to playing this but still want to even though I've heard people say it's terrible.
