A leopard can't change its spots, but can a gamer change their mind?
basically Horizon ZD...though i dont completely love it ..
Believe it or not but nier automata for me.. when i first tried it, it didn’t engage me right away. And thats coming from a big hack and slash fan.. but when i tried again and beat most of the different endings.. wow phenomenal game
Final Fantasy XIII
Deus Ex:Mankind Divided
Resident Evil Outbreak File 2, Final Fantasy 12, Resonance of Fate, Deadly Premonition, Fallout 3. Lost Planet 2. When i started those games, i really hated them with a passion then I gave them another try and they became some of my favorite games of all time.
I remember not thinking much of Fallout 3 the first time that I played it as well. I gave up after a few hours and it had auto-saved in a bad place. Went back to it a year later and had a blast with it. The same thing happened for me with GTA4. I didn't appreciate it originally.
Borderlands. I wasn't really impressed with its concept or weapons at first. Then I saw my best friend make a Skag, and the psychotic screaming midget bedside it, explode into meaty chunks with a single shotgun blast. Loved it ever since.
I bought Dragons dogma for my brother and I discovered a diamond in the rough
Didn't hate it but wasn't enjoying it, the new God of War game. Just wasn't having fun. Took a day's break started again, loved it 😂
Final Fantasy Tactics. I thought it was dumb looking and had bad graphics. Coming off of FF7, it felt like a downgrade. Since then I've probably put 500+ hours into it over the years.
Morrowind since I didn’t try it till after Oblivion and it just felt sluggish and awkward. Now with an understanding of the gameplay system and the added benefits of mods to make it look great it’s hard to not argue for it as my favorite game.
Battlefield 1. Literally had it in my car to sell back. Now it's my most played game
Usually it's the opposite for me. I always fall in love with games then start to see the flaws :( A good example from recent memory was Vampyr, We Happy Few and Guild Wars 2
Battlefield 1. Hated the gameplay, still hate some aspects of it (vehicles), but it's grown into a good shooter.
I personally don't understand why Battlefield 1 reviewed so well at launch. I think Battlefield 1 is a good 7/10 to 7.5/10 shooter. However, I think BF1 in no way deserves its 88 metacritic score.
And I think it does :)
It took them a while to get the weapon balance right. I remember when the assault class was useless at a range of 20m, when the medic guns took ages to kill someone, when no one knew how to handle tanks in the game. Back then, a 7/10 shooter. Right now, honestly, 8.5 for me. Just because the horses are still god damn near invincible.
Warhawk ps3. I just could get to grips with flying stop playing for a month came back after seeing some online tips and havent stop playing since
You still play it to this day? That’s commitment.
Warhawk is pretty good. It's a shame that they turned off the Starhawk servers.
Metal Gear Solid V. I'd never played any of the Metal Gears before. Once I got over the short hump, I spent close to 250 hours in it. Got all the S rankings etc. Awesome game. Loved it.
Binary domain, I didn't hate it, I just thought it was mediocre. But as I progressed in the story, it started becoming my favorite game and more fun to play
The Evil Within. The first couple hours I really wasn't enjoying myself, accidentally discovered some leaps in logic (i.e. There's a shack that enemies can burst from in a pack if you do a certain thing but if you avoid the trigger and sneak inside there's nobody there. I hate stuff like that) and I felt it wasn't anywhere near the standard of other horror games. Got past the first couple chapters and everything changed, I thought the game was amazing. I considered whether I merely hadn't gotten into the game during the early sections, maybe a fresh perspective would help me enjoy it. But nope, tried replaying it and I STILL absolutely hate the first couple chapters.
Dark Souls. No need for explanation. Also, Monster Hunter, Pokemon (I was a kid back then, okay? Whitney was a pain), MvC3, and Ancient Amuletor.
Doki Doki Literature Club. I hated the first hour with a fiery passion and couldn't understand why my friend recommended it so highly. Then something happened in the game I wasn't expecting and I ended up absolutely enthralled with it.
Thought i hated but loved Resident evil 7, final fantasy 8/9/10, darksiders, mgs4, halo combat evolved, sunset overdrive, killzone 2/3, zelda mm/ww/tp, uncharted 2/3. Thought i loved but hated Resident evil 5/6, Killzone ps4, ff 11/12/13/14/15, mgs5, halo 4/5, zelda skyward sword/botw, gears of war 3/4, crackdown 2, ryse, sod2. Although, hate and love are 2 of the strongest words. Id rather say disliked and favored... only games ive loved was zelda links awakening/lbw/ocarina of time, super metroid/metroid prime series, demon souls/dark souls 1 and 2, final fantasy 7, legend of dragoon, parasite eve, resident evil 4,
Warthunder - hated it for the first hour...I've put another 100 or so in since!
Bloodborne.. first time I played I was stuck at Father Gascoigne, quit the game and then returned one year later because I ran out of game to play became addicted ever since and now I have platinumed Bloodborne, DS 2, DS 3, Nioh, even the so-called "2D Soulslike" Hollow Knight and Salt and Sanctuary, now on my way to platinum DS remaster while I'm waiting for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
On your death bed, you will beg for all that wasted time back lol
Wouldn't say "love", but i grew to appreciate FFVIII after learning how to take advantage of its level scaling.
Dark Souls 3 got almost half way through got uninterested guessing because it was getting hard,played again a year later enjoyed & finished it & just bought DS2:SOTFS for 10 bucks.
Halo, as a series - just didn't "get it" until I played Reach while doped up on meds for a kidney stone. It all clicked for me: the story, the gameplay, the lore. Went back to Halo 1 & 2 and tore through them with fervor.
