The Top 5 Games I Want to Like… But Just Don’t

Lucas, like many other gamers out there, has a list of games that he wants to love but just can’t stomach up the will to do so. He tells us his top 5 games that no matter how hard he tries he just can’t like as much as everyone else. Are any of them on your list? (ArmA 2, Assassin's Creed, Culture, Dark Souls 2, PC, PS3, PS4, Saints Row: The Third, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Don't feel bad about Saints Row The Third
That game was ass!

RTS is most of the time anal with micromanaging stuff. I can really enjoy an RTS if done right, but it's def not a genre for everyone

Dark Souls ... yeah, I think everyone should AT LEAST try it. If you don't well, thats completely understandable.

For me personally, I want to like Shadow of The Colossus. I beat the game twice, I just dont get it. Gameplay is very mediocre, story depends on what you make of it, ending is rather weak, characters not fleshed out one bit, world is huge with nothing in it. Colossi are cool, but extremely underwhelming. Never died once and beat them real easy =/

I could never get into Saint's either. But I can see why some like it. I prefer Demon's Souls formula to Dark Souls, but it's a great game either way. But I can also understand why it may be a bit too... umm... well... you know, for some. AC is hit and miss. Some AC games are amazing, while others are "meh". I always tell people to start with AC2.

Little Big Planet for me. I LOVE creating stuff in games, but ALL the scenary clashes and doesn't go well together and it just looks ugly and messey & ends up being kind of a boring platformer.

I really tried to like Lone Survivor but i just couldn't get into it.

The World Ends With You was another game that everybody recommend for me since i was suffering from buyers remorse with the disappointing DS, but again i couldn't get into it.

The Last of Us. I had just finished Tomb Raider on the PC so TLOU was nothing special graphically it just felt like a Zombie game made my Naughty Dog. The resolution at the end I guess was something new for video game titles but nothing revolutionary in story telling by any means.

It doesn't play at all like Tomb Raider. Nice try though.

Congratulations on writing the most bullshot critique of TLOU anywhere...ever. Hard to argue with bullshot.

I'm gonna go with Titanfall. The foundation is there for something really good but overall the game is very mediocre. Incredibly fun for a week or so then it's back to battlefield. I should enjoy this game because it is CoD without the bulls$&t but it just does not have the content to keep me coming back.

I should also enjoy Killzone SF but I feel like the game is half the game Killzone 3 was and certainly not on the level of KZ2.

I hear you about Titanfall. I was even planning on making that my "go to" game but I can't find much motivation to jump into it anymore.

If you're on PC, Loadout has been really entertaining

Nothing wrong with any of these choices. The thing about the Assassin's Creed series that bums me out is in the first it had the premise of actually having to find information about your target and it made it sound like you could approach the assassination however you choose and the information you gathered would help you decide what the best route is. And that sounds amazing to me! However, the information gathering is superficial story fluff and the assassinations are guided.

Plus, with each AC release the mechanics of the game get further away from satisfying stealth and more geared towards open conflict (which is weird because it's easy to kill a dozen guards already), and to exacerbate these problems are the sometimes frustration optional mission constraints that demand you play stealthily in a game that has barebones stealth mechanics.

I still really like the games because of the beautiful environments and the feeling of being a badass. I just wish the series had evolved more based off of what the original wanted to do.

for Ass creed series has a point ..the series is boring ,super easy , unimagined and the protagonists are at least lame (is smbone remember any of the protagonists?)..also the purpose of the game is from one perspective evil ...the same goes for all the other Ubisoft games from which i have nt find one to be above average
