I loved most of these also. i thought Silent Hill Downpour was great not 2 great but still good. I'm on playing though Nier now as loved Automata last year, but must admit it's also excellent but very frustrating in some part's

DN: Forever was decent. Shoddy gunplay, but there were a lot of cool elements to the game. Personally, I thought Downpour was an all around strong survival game. You can argue how its theme clashes with the series proper all you want, but it was a good horror game that still felt at home alongside the other releases. Postal 2 is just stupid fun. It's janky, and a mess at times, but still an overall solid game that is entirely self-aware that it's lowbrow and a bit garbage. It's just fun.

Haven't played the others.

I've long since stopped giving critics the time of day. They can be spot-on, but far too often it seems like they're out of touch with what gamers think of games. I've also long since developed enough intuition that I can usually tell if I would enjoy a game before I buy it anyways without needing the help of critics.
