    FFVII Remake is another one from recent memory. Ignoring the controversial story elements, most people I've talked to love the gameplay side of things, but I just wasn't a fan. They work, but I just don't like those types of battle mechanics or quest systems.

    Yeah, I'm in two minds about this one too. There were times when I enjoyed it and times when I really didn't.

    Being just 2 hours into the game, this is what I'm afraid of. The ppl I know who played (and finished) it definitely had mixed feelings. But the conclusion is that it's still worth the experience.

    NakeyJakey has a video up that basically sums up my feelings perfectly. You just constantly have a choke chain around your neck that daddy R* pulls on any time you try to do smurfing anything.

    Wow I didn't post in this thread.

    Mario Odyssey, pretty much every R* game since San Andreas, pretty much every game from Valve (except the first Portal).

    BotW gets a bit samey for me after a while, so I can appreciate where you're coming from, Quin.

    I'm generally fairly easily entertained, which I consider a lucky trait to have, but there are some games that I just couldn't get into. I'm not sure if they were considered Good Games in some objective fashion, though.

    Walking sims are hard to call objectively good games by their very nature, but recently I played Sunlight after hearing glowing reviews of it and I thought it was one of the least interesting Walking Sims ever. I also was not impressed with Dear Esther at all.

    If it wasn't for the multiplayer aspects of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, I'd call it a trash version of Stardew Valley, all graphics no gameplay. I still enjoyed the game but looking back I was just interested in collecting things and the gameplay was dull.

    Newer Pokémon games get very tiring after a while for me. They never capture the amazing "collect them all" nature of the original because the idea of catching them all requires so much trading/transferring between games that it's absurd.

    I'm generally not into PVP-only games, so that stuff tires for me very quickly.

    Borderlands 3, any skater game, most rhythm/dance games, Monopoly, Baldur's Gate. What little I played of Fallout 3 didn't hold my interest either, I don't find post-apocalyptic games to be very visually pleasing and this often impacts my ability to enjoy a game.

    Controversial opinion, maybe, but CDPR gameplay is frequently not that great.

    Oh c'mon ) Zelda series is gorgeous!



    At the moment I am into Eden Ring. Since I can't beat the final boss in Elden Ring, I'm going around exploring the lands trying discover something I've missed on my journey so far. Upgrading weapons, gear and character. Since I respecced to a dex-arc I've been having lots of fun. I love Regen builds, so I'm power stancing super fast daggers (Reduvia and Misericord) and together they have around 180 blood build up, just annihilating everything. Coupled with talismans for regaining health and Rykards rune I barely have to use my flasks other than boss fights. I also have Morgotts Cursed Sword which do tons of stagger poise for great knockdown effect. Total bad ass right now.

    I played Zelda Botw ten hours and then dropped

    I still prefer classics like Ocarina and Majora's Mask
