There’s too much hate in the world, especially in the world of games, especially on the internet. So, in an effort to counter some of this negativity, here’s five games that take a lot of crap they don’t deserve…
What about games that get NO love and ALL hate. All of these games have an army of rabid fanboys behind them to support the game. Dissapointed in this list. Alpha Protocol should be on there. Maybe the game publishers didn't pay off reviews. Maybe the game killed their parents. But I genuinely enjoyed it. And I'm completely flabbergasted of why it receives so much flak.
Play is really the dumbest gaming website that gets submitted...
I mean how is MW2 being unfairly hated it on? it has tons of bugs, $15 map packs,a $60 price on PC where as all other games are $50 and laggy P2P online where the host has a huge advantage. I see plenty of reason to hate it.
FF13 and MW2 fully deserve all of the hate they receive.
They gave Sonic 06 a 9.5. Anything written from this site ever is instantly invalidated.
my only hate MW2's online the single player is pretty intense besides its far fetched story and short length, spec ops is also great. But the online is overrated beyond beleif, the M4 has like unlimited range its like a rail gun, the kill streaks are ridiculous, the spawn points are ridiculous, the glitches are hilarious and at times render the online unplayable, and the ammount of camping is a joke, did i mention how overpowered the M4 is ?
List was decent until the last 2. And no, Alpha Protocol is garbage and deserves all the "hate" is receives for all the "hype" it put out.
Where the hell is Halo? That game is hated for outrageous reasons.
Having a huge fanbase doesn't mean a game can't get unfairly hated on. In fact, it makes it more likely. And Alpha Protocol doesn't get hated on. Everyone's too indifferent to it to hate it. For what it's worth though, PLAY gave it a pretty high score of 83%.
Resistance 2 gets hated on unnecessarily. It is just as good as Resistance and in some areas like graphics and multiplayer...its a lot better.
I agree, I absolutely love the MP in R2. Splitscreen is also very fun with a friend.
Cant agree more. Having played L4D, which is mainly coop - R2's coop is better, plus it has decent single-player and exclellent multi-player, yet you hear more praise for L4D, strange.
One of my favorite games ever.
im going to have to be the lone disagree. i thought 2 was a step in every way except co-op. i also don't think 2 got that much hate. more people where just disappointed more than anything.
Resistance2 wasnt the biggest dissapointment of a game I ever bought EVER!. Above madden 07 for ps3 and above MW2. Resistance:FOM is leaps and bounds greater than res2 in all aspects but graphics. With that said Res2 wasnt hated on its just a huge disappointment.
BRING BACK THE WEAPON WHEEL!!!! that and the grimm suck!
MW2? lmao, such a terrible game should be hated on.
M.A.G should've been n*1 instead of MW2. So many unfair reviews it had, many of them which were only based on the beta. Other reviewed after only 10 hours of play, and without unlocking the full 256 player maps.
Totally agree. I just got through with a MAG session. It's my favorite online FPS by a mile. MW2 deserves every bit of hate it gets. Can't comment on the other games really, except that I liked the little bit of Far Cry 2 that I played and their defense of FF13 is laughable.
i agree. For a near perfect review, you must play MAG like any other MMORPG game. There are too many skill sets to unlock to just judge the game in a mere 10 hours, and judging the game based on a beta is a huge mistake as well.
FF13 is getting unfairly hated on but MW2 is getting fairly hated on. By the way where is MAG?
"If you’re not prepared to sit through 25 hours of linear corridors before getting to the good stuff then you have no right to call yourself a gamer." Did they really just say that? I should waste 25 hours on a game that I could spend playing a good game just to get to the good game in FF13? In what dimension does that make sense? I'm not "hardcore" enough for it? FF13... is very fairly hated on, if only for the inclusion of something like "Auto Battle". The game plays itself. That's not a game. Any gamer who puts up with even an hour of the opening areas of FF13 is a confirmed FF fanboy.
its not a waste of 25 hours though. sure its linear, but most games are and people are fine with that. the characters, story, world, and battle system is what gets you through the game. if you didn't enjoy any of that then of course you wouldn't like the game. no the games doesn't play it self. the point of the battle system isn't to pick through all your characters abilitys. the auto battle just helps to keep a fast paced action feel, and if you don't like it than don't use it. Paradigm Shift is what the battle system is really about.
the stupid part about that is...whats the point of waiting 25hours for the game to get good...when you can put a game in that gets good within the first hour?
@4pocalyps3 I have spent 140 hours on the game and i loved every minute of it
Yeah screw MW2 it deserves the hate for just ah the horrible structure that game has build since it released. Tho on the list Far Cry 2 it may not be as great as the first game but that game is worth a try to anyone i personally miss it might buy that soon.
Who the hell hates on Killzone 2? Nothing wrong with that game, just not many people play it anymore. EDIT: We got a hater? I own Killzone 2 and its one of my top played PS3 games. Everyday I log on there is only 10-20 games worldwide, that is not a lot of people. I have no problem with the controls in Killzone 2, they work just fine for me. @DA_Shredder - The controls killed the game for casual noobs, the controls where just fine. People didn't like them because it didn't have every damn sort of aim assist like in most FPS, plus you cant really spray and pray either you have to burst fire and actually know how to aim.
a lot of people still play Killzone 2 even the ones that get owned on every game since it hardcore mature gameplay. But I taste Killzone 3 controls and it will get the love from the hardcore Killzone fans and the love from others gamers that play a lot of COD or MAG ect. Killzone 3 controls are perfected they fell like Killzone 2 but very smooth and responsive. The best of the best.
I wonder why? It just goes to show that the controls really did kill the game. Hopefully they fix it in the next sequel.
The fact that people are used to the thousand aim assists of Call of Duty, thats the problem
because the controls are sluggish and I play on the PC where aim assist does not exist
My hate for Modern Warfare 2 was ONLY because both console versions 360/PS3 only had a native resolution render of 576p that was then unscaled into the 720p. This was so they could maintain a smooth 60fps while playing. The game really really looks like crap and long in the tooth on the consoles. The PC version is much nicer but still has signs of age in the engine, but can be forgiven because the MP structure was solid for a run and gun experience.
out of everything wrong with the game the best you can come up with is the resolution? your an idiot.
haha i would say the same thing, but last time i called someone an idiot I got banned from posting for 2 days?!?!? I was dead inside for those 2 days.
Yeah, I'm sorry but that's pretty minor. You can't tell the difference anyway. The way they upscaled it it's actually smoother than most 720p games... But yeah the game is the suck. It was fun at first but it's a noob fest.
i gotta agree with the list for the most part. At least on N4G, KZ2 gets a lot of love. I know its a website full of PS3 fanboys, but if it is and indication of other gaming media, there it plenty of love for it. Final Fantasy is definitely unfairly hated. I think it is a great game that is not open world like many people wanted.The story is awesome and I want to keep playing. MW2 is an obvious #1. It's the most played online console game of all time but somehow it receives so much flack.
white knight chronicles that game rules!!!!!
soooo no halo? Halo is a game that's just as popular as Call of Duty, if not more so. Halo gets hated on all the time, I don't care if you like the 360 or not. But when you buy halo 3, you're getting quite a package for FPS fans. Even more so with the upcoming Reach.
I agree with that, people just like to hate on Halo and many of them have never tried it. If you want to know why I'm a big Halo fan, go to Bungie's website and look at the montages. The type of crazy stuff you see in those videos can't be done in any other game.
now i do enjoy Halo, but people like to hate on it because its insanely overhyped, now imagine if your not a halo fan in september 2007, commercials every 5 minutes, the internet was filled with halo ads, billboards with master cheif everywhere, i think G4 were even doing a week dedicated to it, halo even had its own drink, if your not a halo fan it was hell.
Games like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Halo brought the shooter into the main stream. The reason soo many people have an opinion on Halo is because they've experienced it. It was one of the first online experiences for alot of console players.
Fact Check: Halo is not as popular as Call Of Duty. Not even close.
I agree with FFXIII on that list. But MW2.....come on now.
I agree with the entire list except for MW2. I hate MW2 because it wasn't tested properly and thus resulted in a sub-par product. I love MW and was so eagerly awaiting MW2, but all it did was disappoint. I feel my hatred is justified.
My hatred is also justified with MW2 and i'm still playing MW1. I had a chance to play the single player campaign and it was too damn short to enjoy. I don't think I need to play the multiplayer cause i don't like cheaters and i don't like glitches.
Went back to COD4, a few weeks after MW2 released. The sad thing is WaW, Multi-p. only held my attention, for maybe 10 hours over 3 days. what a waste of $65(tax).
This guy is a tard, all he says is "it has a good story". If the game has shity gameplay, the game is going suck no matter how "good" the story is.
The only game I disagree is MW2. That game should be hated on as much as possible.
you console nubs should play MW2 on the PC and get ass-fisted by cheaters and hacked-lobbies, not to mention pr0z, like me. http://img155.imageshack.us... AND, retarded IW.net picking the so-called "best-host" by selecting a dude with a 56k connection to host the game. FUCK you IW.net
Want a medal over 1 okay k/d ratio? Also, who even takes screenshots of their match k/d?
Most PS3 exclusives get unfairly hated on. They are just as good or better than their counterparts but recieve scorn because they are not those games e.g. R and C and Mario, Killzone and Halo, Heavy Rain and Alan Wake etc.
thier jus getting tired of the franchise.i mean when u think of it every halo game is pretty much the same as the last,graphics wise,story wise and gameplay.and thats all fine and good for the hardcore halo fans but for someone like me it kinda gets old pretty fast,anyways peace and gaming
Though I don't think any of them are unfairly hated on to be honest. I still play MW2 even though they removed my favorite game type (Capture the flag) and there have been glitches and issues from the start. I've briefly played all the titles on the list and wasn't really a fan of any of them for various reasons. None really jump out at me as great games, most are fair and some are poor. To each their own though.
Wanna know what MW2 doesn't deserve? ........My hard earned money!
Modern Warfare 2 deserved every bit of hatred towards it, and then some. Final Fantasy VII should be on that list, though.
LOL FF7 is loved If you meant FF8, I agree FF8 should be on that list. Never understood the massive hate against it. Guys should GTA4 have been on the list?
draw system, lame characters, terrible story, even worse dialogue. though i ended up really enjoying FF8 through all that.
No it's a great game maybe not 10 great but great
My only compaint is that it was too gritty looking. But the gameply was improved, the graphics looked good for a 2008 free roam and it was kept going with worthwhile dlc. I think people just like to "hate" on things that succeed because they are jealous on the inside.
It's not exactly a game that's treated with much respect amongst the Silent Hill aficiando's. I guess due to the lack of combat and the fact that Team Silent weren't involved, they see it as SH-lite. Personally, I found it to be a perfectly realized exercise in pacing; it was a short game granted, but I wasn't dismayed because the sense of escalation as events progressed and got weirder and weirder completely captivated me. Not only that, it sports some of the finest graphics seen on the Wii, often strived to make inventive use of the wiimote and the ending was absolute killer. Not exactly a scary game like SH 2, but deeply unsettling at times.
I think KZ2 received a lot of praise, the only hate it gathered where from 360 fanboys. The COD fans hated too, because they are used to noob friendly games. MW2 deserves all the hate it receives, in fact it needs more hate. That game should had a full fledged beta, instead we have a game littered with glitches, and a broken game. The single player was horrendous as well. Crysis has the best visuals by far, but it lacks in gameplay. Its really bland, and mediocre. Let's see if Crysis2 improves on gameplay. I thought Far Cry2's story was very boring. I just couldnt get into the narrative, but burning fields with the flamethrower was a blast.
and killzone is not. Sandbox game play destroy everything do missions in a multiple of ways vs a linear boring game on a rail with no destructibility and laggy controls. Please. If crysis is bland and it was critically acclaimed by the way then killzone is if off the charts boring and unoriginal. At least crysis brought some gameplay variation instead of shoot guy move forward. And Crysis 2 will blow killzone out of the water even the new one killzone 2.1. Crysis you can throw objects and enemies blow up a structure jump on top of said structure ect go anywhere you can see on the screen, killzone you can shoot a red barrel that will blow up LOL. If killzone was multiplat it would get no whrere near the love it does on this site. And to al the people defending killzone controls I own a AR 15 assault rifle it is not that heavy and if i need to shoot it while turning around it will be very quick by the way.
This is the most horrible article I have read in my entire life. "2. Final Fantasy XIII If you’re not prepared to sit through 25 hours of linear corridors before getting to the good stuff then you have no right to call yourself a gamer. Go play Wii Sports or something. 25 hours is nothing if you’re hardcore enough to handle it. Besides you get some great combat and gorgeous cut-scenes during that time." What? Why the hell should I subject myself to that piece of shit for 25 hours in hope for something better? It's like flailing yourself for hours in the hope that after a certain amount of time you'll see Jesus. And the cutscenes are filled with horrendous dialog. And the combat is the worst since FF7. Final Faintasy 13 is horrible, and while one MIGHT be able to spin together a coherent argument to defend it in some way, you are clearly not succeeding at it.
should have been on this list
It's not really hated on.
DMC 4 is unfairly hated too.. I agree it was a step down from DMC3 when it comes to story.. the were some nice improvements to the gameplay though.. The whole backtracking did sucked.. but the bosses where cool (even though we had to defeat them 3 times) Devil Bringer was nice.. It was a decent game and not DMC2 all over again. Just some bad design and story choices that restricted it from being an amazing game. Another one that was hated early this year was Bayonetta.. all in anticipation of GOW3 and a half baked demo for the game that didnt do justice to the game.. GOW3 was amazing alright.. but Bayonetta was also an excellent game.. but it just got unfairly hated.
CoD has 25 million playing it for the same reason there are millions who listening to anything released by anybody from cash money records, there are stupid people out there willing to accept anything that the media says is "popular".
Must be sad to hate a game, don't like it don't play it. Halo serious never been that fused with it played first xbox & PC. Halo 2 halfway through lost interest, Halo 3 looks great well polished MP still not that fused with it. KZ2 played it upto last Boss, looks fantastic plays fine but just someting that I can't put My finger on put me off. Mario games tried so hard to like them with N64 & GC but just like other platformers better. Cod Serious love them all upto MW(PC) Just did't enjoy MW2. May don't like a game because of a change of gameplay or the Graphic style or type of game but don't hate them find that strange or odd lol
