Four Great Video Games I Couldn’t Love As Much As Everyone Else

UM writes: BioShock: Infinite is the type of game that almost everyone can love. I can already imagine myself asking people who wouldn’t like the game: “How could you not like the game?” Truly, it’s hard to comprehend why some gamers might not love a gem or would be classic as this game. Consequently, I remember myself being at the receiving end of that question several times. I’ve often been criticized in real life and on Twitter by fellow gamers for not liking a couple of video game’s classic titles. Apparently, we don’t have the right to have our own preferences online but I’m used to the Internet. It’s not that these games are bad, they’re ‘good’ games but it just couldn’t blossom to fangirl love. Most of the time it’s just not my genre, or sometimes it’s because I’ve played its massively improved sequel first. Here’s a look back at some of the popular video game titles I just can’t seem to fall in love with. (Fallout 3, Final Fantasy VII, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

And? Its called an opinion. Everyone has one, not all are the same or even slightly similar.

The only wrong ones are those which infringe upon the rights muchless opinions of others.

like 90% of the people that don't like FF7 didn't even play enough to see the world-map.

I lost count of how many times I tried to play FF7, but I just can't stand it. I finished 3 ~ 6, 8 ~ 10, 13, 10-2, 13-2, and 4 the After Years. But 7 and 12 are the only ones (not counting the MMORPGs FF11 and FF14) that I simply can't stand to play until the end.

FF7 has a great deep story and pretty deep materia system. I don't get what's NOT to like about FF7. I'm just playing it through collecting enemy skills and stuff on my Vita and the game hasn't aged one bit.

I'm playing FF7 on the Vita at the moment too. I'm liking it a lot but it isn't even close the greatness of FF6 for me. Partly I think because the old school sprites have aged better than the polygon models (though both look very good on the Vita) but mostly I just prefer the characters and story of 6. I have made myself promise to complete each game in the series before moving onto the next because the stories are pretty damn hard to follow as it is without mixing them all up, but it's getting pretty hard to not skip to 9 or 4 ( I'm not playing in chronological order).

i personally loved fallout 3 and FFVII riuned my social life i liked it so much but i understand her reasons for not liking them so much, Fallouts main character's personality was totally in your imagination and FFVII's story was the greatest thing about it just took time for it to grab you. something my friends couldnt grasp, they still make fun of me to this day about FFVII.

it's alright not everyone has to think the same way
i didn't enjoy Dragon Age, WoW, RDR.
all of which received very much praise..

in the end it's all about what you want

I just bought Dragon age origins recently and was absolutely loving it until I reached the section in the Mage's tower where you're sent into the fade alone. It seems like I've been playing that part forever and it's just torture. I'm pretty sure the game will become great for me again once I make it through this part but I can't bring myself to slog through it, even with a guide.

IMO your full of crap and have terrible taste in games. I just really disagree with people who can not appreciate mass effect 1
