Like the title suggests, what is one game you were not very excited about and ended up loving it?

Final Fantasy X, my first FF game. I wasn't interested, but Formy forced me to give it a go. X definitely isn't my favourite game, but it was more than engaging enough to get me into the series.

Fire Emblem 7. My sister told me to play it. She said I would really like it, and she was right. It's my favorite game of all time. :)

Xenoblade is getting to be like that too. My brother really wanted me to play it, and I'm really liking it so far.

Secret of Mana and FFVI are the big ones but smaller ones I enjoyed were Suikoden, Threads of Fate, and Batman: Arkhum Asylum.

Baldur's Gate. I made my wife play FFVII on condition that I play Baldur's Gate. It was a rough transition for the both of us, but after that we both loved our respective games.

Uncharted 4. I'd been indifferent to the series, never doing more than dabbling in the occasional demo for the earlier titles. Then a friend loaned me his copy of 'A Thief's End', raving about its gameplay and design.

I was hooked pretty early on - the fantastic action, the visual spectacle and the believable, banter-tastic characters all really worked for me.

I'm now planning to pick up 'The Nathan Drake Collection' in due course so I can enjoy the earlier stories.

Dwarf Fortress, by a long shot, tops this list. UFO: Enemy Unknown is up there. I'm not sure how many others though as it's pretty rare I have to get pulled into trying a good game. Halo 3 was great fun for a while, I can't remember if I was dragged into that one or not.

The original Halo. At the time I hadn't really dipped my toes into the shooter genre with the exception of GoldenEye 007 on the N64.

I was going to pass on it until I watched someone play it, then I couldn't help but want a turn and give it a shot. I was hooked. 15 or however many years later it is now I've played almost every single Halo game and I look forward to whatever comes next.

Every once in a while I still get online and play Halo multiplayer on PC. The community that's left is small but dedicated.

I had to force myself to play Dark Souls for about 10 hours before I started feeling any enjoyment at all and now I strongly feel that the series is the best thing to happen to modern video games.

Final Fantasy XI. Played it to hang out with my girlfriend and then it took over my life for three years.

I had to force myself to play it after putting it off forever, but once I finally got into it, it was immensely rewarding.
