Interesting. I loved Fallout 3, Morrowind, Mass Effect 2 and LiS.
Nice to see on guy on a website gets to decide what is and isn't great for the rest of us pions. /s
I couldn't help but notice that plot/scripting issues in ME2 would lead to what ME3 became.
Meh. Disagree all you want, but that's you also got Andromeda.
7 well loved games that the author doesn't like.
I’ll give you AC III. That game is definitely not great, though it wasn’t terrible. Those other games are definitely all in my top fifty, maybe top twenty.
Yeah I don't understand why they put ACIII. That is the 2nd most hated AC ever next to AC: Unity.
It’s hard for me to back into fallout 3. Even tho I really enjoyed it years ago.
Try an unarmed run.
Mass Effect 2 was ok, but could have been much better.
Guys I like ME2 a ton, but remember that was at a point when EA was shifting massive products out the door, to meet deadlines. The beginning of the game was fantastic, but the game loses steam in a lot of areas, just like DA2
this it the worst site, saying kingdom hearts was not that great, biggest middle finger to this page
I could see many people not liking it depending on what is important to them in a game.
Provocative garbage purely designed to get you to click through another one-title-per-page article so they can serve as many ads as possible. Don't bother.
I didn't like Assassin's Creed III, so that one I give you
Most people didn't, so it doesn't fit his criteria.
Who is this guy? And what makes him an authority?
I agree with everything except Majora's Mask (and Life is Strange, never played it). Definitely see people not liking this article as Morrowind is hugely popular, Kingdom Hearts has it's fans, Fallout 3 was huge, and Life is Strange has the LBGT community.
There is nothing LBGT about life is strange. Other then controlling a girl I didnt notice anything. And controlling women in videogames isnt exactly new.
I heard wrong about the game then, I thought Life is Strange was, maybe I was thinking of Gone Home.
YES, Gone home does have the lgbt story. Although I have heard it is a good story.
There is LGBT in LIS. Depending on your relationship with Chloe, Max can turn into a lesbian at the end of the game and kiss her.
Yes, Gone home does have the lgbt vibe.
Let me just form an opinion that is sure to cause some friction and lead to clicks. "These well known games that you love. Yeah those. They actually aren't good. Here's why." Done. Brilliant. Time for a coffee.
Dont give a crap what you think. Mass effect 2 was exceptional.
I'll give you Assassin's Creed 3, as for the rest...
I agree with AC3, it wasn't great, and Life is Strange is just bad. Some of the worst writing I've seen in anything.
After 27 years of gaming I'd say Life is Strange is in the top 10 best games ever made, especially for the story.
10 best games? EVER? This makes me want to put a pistol in my mouth. Personal opinion wise okay you're free to like what you like, but objectively I can not agree with that at all.
Actually I'd put it right behind The Last of Us as the #2 best game ever made.
1) Life is Strange is indeed awesome. 3) Mass Effect 2 was indeed awesome. Especially how your companions help in the end of the game. ANd they may live or die depending on you. Now with # 4 Morrowind " Yes, there were lots of quests, but the vast majority of them can be tied down to two formulas: either go to X area and kill X enemy, or go to X area and retrieve X items. It gets very boring, and the lack of a solid story makes completing them more of a chore." Im sorry then it appears someone forgot to read cuz the story was amazing. Youre a freaking god. Doesnt get better then that. "The gameplay itself is fine, but the lack of caps on skills like alchemy and enchanting ensures that the game will be unbalanced for anyone who chooses not to focus on these crafts." Its singleplayer. The balance wasnt there but it didnt affect my melee only tactics. Nothing wrong with it. "People always complain that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim had too much hand holding, but we’d argue that allowing players to create one-hit KO potions was much worse" Id argue its not. Id rather be badass then not be badass after capping everything. 5) Majoras mask had an amazing npc interaction system and progression. Dungeons were a little lacking but concept was awesome. 6) Fallout 3 was rather short and empty of content. 7) Never played Assassins 3 so not much to say on that one.
I can't take the article serious with Life is Strange, Fallout 3 and Mass Effect 2 being listed. Some of the best games around. Now if you would've thrown in the GTA series I might believe you because that series is cack.
Morrowind is still today the best elder scrolls game. The amount of thing you were able to do are still unmatched. Jump across the map? NO PROBLEM!
Ahhh yes, another "opinion piece", another pile of intellectual vomit. Well done chap.
I am so happy to see mass effect 2 on this list. I love the trilogy as a whole but mein gott, ME2 is overrated. And lacking in plot.
Yes. Everything wrong with Mass Effect today started with the silliness they pulled in the second game. GARBAGE.
Mass Effect 2 is awesome. One of the best RPGs I have ever played. I used to love AC3 but on replay, I didn't like it much. By the time you finish the prologue and tutorial, you're about half way through it
AKA... A quick tutorial on click bait.
yeah it's not as good as anyone else says it is it's as good as this guy says it is also fuck you for your multiple pages
Let me help those that don't want to clickbait their way through numerous screens to see each separate page dedicated to a title. Life Is Strange Kingdom Hearts Mass Effect 2 The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind The Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Fallout 3 Assassin’s Creed III And the reasoning behind the inclusion of each game on the list boils down to... he didn't like them that much because blah blah blah.
Just because a game becomes easier to play or is easy to play does not make it not "a great Game" same goes for games that are designed for artistic quality in mine more so than how hard or challenging the game can be.... For instance ...... I played Life is Strange....... I found it very artistically creative but as a game it did not capture my attention like Journey, Papa & Yo (very easy game to play but was not bored), Rain, Ico, Even the very short game Brothers: Tale of two Sons I didn't get bored (although I didn't have much time to get bored ) but amazing how much story was delivered in such a short amount of game play....... So in my opinion, LIS didn't cut it as a game but was still a great artistically styled game. However, just because it didn't work for me doesn't change that it was a great game it played ok, story was ok..... I bet not every person like every game on the list of above that I found more engaging but they are great games in their own right..... ME2 suffered the Sequel issue a lot of games suffer from other than that I believe it doesn't belong in this category..... I didn't like ACIII .......seems to be the consensus no matter where you go or what system you play on LOL.... Most of the other games their reasoning almost sound more like personal preferences not real reasons. Most people have avoid talking about Majora's Mask but I actually hate this of all the Zelda series but again just personal preference and this game would fit in this category for me.
