The One Franchise You Could Never Get Into

It’s happened to all of us; a new game comes out and steals the attention of practically everyone around you. They’re all playing it, raving about it, reading about it, and won’t stop going on about how great it is. With high hopes, you sit down to play it, and fail to see what’s so great about it. In fact, you downright don’t like it, even though the rest of the world is in love with it. (Grand Theft Auto V, Half Life 3, Half-Life 2, PC, PS3, Retro, World of Warcraft, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, Xbox 360)

I never coold really get into GTA either. I just wind up doing stupid, senseless crap instead of missions.

Honestly, I'd do the same thing until I really wanted to be able to cross a bridge into the next island without having to do some crazy stunt that only worked 30% of the time.

Sleeping Dogs, on the other hand, has me hooked. I can't skip any missions.

Doing the stupid, senseless stuff is the best part of GTA for me. It took me over 3 years to complete the story mode in GTA IV because I was having fun with everything else.

Great Article and Idea. I'm sure there are many more games that people would add to this list as well.

For me it was War for Cybertron. Sorry I know its a good game but I made the mistake of getting the PC version and the controls just honestly were slow and clunky IMO
I'd have been better off I think if I got one of the console versions.

Call of Duty
I just cant see what the big deal is about it, I cant play it even for a few minutes, admittedly im not FPS gamer but I liked Killzone 2!

Red Dead Redemption, Diablo, all MMORPG's, and Gears of War...these are frachises I never really got into that everyone loves. For the longest time I thought Borderlands and Halo were really lame, but I've changed my mind drastically on both of those. Killzone and Dark Souls/Demon Souls are games that I really enjoy that a lot of people around me don't enjoy.

Zelda, I appreciate the games and understand why they are popular but I can never really get into them.
