10 Guiltly Pleasure Video Games You'd Never Admit to Playing

Complex - There is a nearly endless list of transgressions that we will take with us to our graves; guilty pleasures both great and small, that we are more than fine with nobody knowing a thing about. (Culture)

Only played one of those and that was Rumble Roses. My cousin had brought it from GameStop and I tried it. Sadly it wasn't my cup of tea.

Rock Band was absolutely brilliant. Easily the best social/party/drinking video game I've seen. It allowed people with zero experience in games to jump in and have some fun. As someone who was primarily a PC game, I thought the current gen of consoles offered me nothing new. Then Rock Band and skate. came along and changed everything for me.

Yeah, I don't really get this list. I still throw in the original rock band occasionally. Why the hell not? It was a good game.
Resistance 2 was a helluva right. The inclusion on list list is mystifying. Didn't it have nearly a 90 or something on metacritic? And even the Lost game, hell...I played that. I was a fan of the series and it's worst sin was being simply mediocre.

I get the nerdy pervert games being on this list, but DDR? Really?

the bouncer was brilliant, why wouldnt anyone admit to playing it :S, kinda wish they hadda continued with that, i felt they had something good their, felt like streets of rage.
sephiroth420  +   814d ago
you know id admit to playing all of these, apart from the pervy dead or alive game, as for one its some bullshit and how can people perv on video game characters, until they actually look real they shouldnt have sexual stuff in there, unless its just for a joke like the gta hooker thing, but to you freaks that perv over dead or alive and such games, theres something wrong with you.

Rock band was a pretty good game.
I did enjoy The bouncer alot.
Winback was pretty decent.
DDR was enjoyable.

The other games I haven't played, but definitely isn't a guilty pleasure and I'm pretty sure most people would admit to playing these games.

DDR is fun, Rock Band not as good as GH so I didn't play much, The Bouncer is awful and I played a friends copy when I was younger, House of the Dead is easily playable in the arcade and I really don't see the point in the list.

I'm not on the CoD hating band bandwagon, but if you're appealing to internet users then CoD is most likely one of their guilty pleasures that they don't like admitting.

I would say WoW was my biggest guilty pleasure ever. Never admitted I played it to anyone I knew outside of the game.

DDR, Rock Band, and HOTD are considered guilty pleasures now?? Since when? Pretty sure back in 2007-2009, everyone admitted to playing Rock Band. No one had shame, and it was a great party game. Even DDR. Early 2000s to mid 2000s, I still knew people who played it. It was also pretty popular all the way till 2008 in the arcades, same as HOTD.

Rumble Roses? DOA Volleyball? THESE are guilty pleasure... On a side note, I played The Guy Game a few times. I played and enjoyed it a few times. Then I learned about this magical place called the Internet, where I don't have to solve stupid trivia to see naked ladies.

I admit that I've found a number of video game female characters to be super sexy. Wow, I feel like a huge weight as been lifted. I can die in peace now.

What a coincidence? Rumble roses, DOA. Nerdy perverts. lol

They should have put Dead or Alive: Paradise instead of Beach Volleyball. lol!
Brucis  +   814d ago
I played DOA: XBV and RR, I don't care. But don't talk shit about The Bouncer.

Dafuq is this ? Resistance 2 was good
isarai  +   814d ago
Resistance 2

What is so bad about these games that they would be considered "guilty pleasures" ? i've played all 3 of these and i don't get it, they were very fun games with really nothing weird or off about them at all
IanVanCheese  +   814d ago
Lol is this just a list of 10 random games? They didn't even explain any of the choices.

Cool games journalism bro.

Guilty pleasure?!?

Most of these are perfectly fine games that everyone plays. What a horrible list! I'm definitely downvoting this site.
lildudexst  +   814d ago
Dead or Alive: Beach Volleyball was the shit.i love that game i still got i unlock everything.
Blackdeath_663  +   814d ago
Catherine is my guilty pleasure i tried that game out and just kept playing
FunkMacNasty  +   814d ago
Only games I played on the list were Resistance 2 and Lost:Via Domus. Resistance 2 was not the greatest game in the series by any means, but nothing that I would feel guilty about telling folks I've played it. Same with the Lost videogame. It was pretty garbage, but a lot of hardcore Lost fans played it (like me). I didn't "hate" it, but it could've been done alot better and a lot more thought couldve been put into it.

My biggest guity pleasure these days is Black Ops 2!! HaHa!! That's a game I don't like to admit to playing!
