-Yoshi's Island feels too focused on fancy design than actual gameplay.

Why not? You wouldn't want a new 2D Metroid?


I would love a new 2D metroid, however, I feel that trying to continue the story after Fusion isn't a viable option. Basically, if they make a new Metroid, heavy consideration should be made to it being a sequel to Fusion.

Most of my opinions are unpopular. Good thing that doesn't stop me from posting them anyway! :D

- Ocarina of Time sucks. For that matter, so does Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword. Perhaps outside the Zelda franchise they could be salvaged into mediocre games, but inside the franchise they are unforgivable.

- Final Fantasy VII sucks. So does VIII, X, and everything after it. Seriously, any game where I'm told it will take about 20 hours before "it gets good"? Puh-lease.

- Metal Gear Solid games (The FMV heavy ones) are ridiculous. If they are amongst someone's favourite games, I find it challenging to take any of their opinions seriously.

- When there is a working time machine available, the first thing I will do is go back in time and prevent Super Mario Sunshine from ever even being conceived. "Abortion" is too tame a word.

Man, it feels good to say those things in a thread where no-one can call me a troll.

Oh, boy! Though according to my collegues my opinions aren't actually that unpopular.


- JRPGs are a flawed genre mechanically and most of the most beloved titles in it are pretty terrible.
- Videogame writing is incredibly similar in quality and tone to Michael's Bay Transformers.
- Videogames characters have two emotions: Determination and teenager angst of the most childish kind.
- Most 3D games are ugly and not even a decent art direction can save them from terrible animations.
- Controllers are completely unfit for FPS
- No FPS designed for controllers can be more than decent
- The higher the number of sequels, the higher the chance of the series being artistically bankrupt.


- No commercial gaming website is worthwhile to read.
- The only reason gaming sites are so obsessed with sexism, violence or other moral issues is because they don't have anything to say about specific titles and can't analyze them, forcing them to review or talk about something else.
- Critics ought to play most of the hallmark titles in gaming before daring to write, including R-Type, Dungeons and Dragons, Cosmic Encounter and Francis Tresham's Civilization.
- If you name-drop Ikaruga you know nothing about shooters or Ikaruga itself.

- Half-Life 2 has horrid pacing.
- League of Legends is terribly designed and shallow for so many moving parts.
- Tetris DS, as any other post-Worlds Tetris is terrible.
- Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines is mediocre and ignores the main theme of the setting its based on.
- The Tower of Druaga is a great game
- Beatmania IIDX is the hardest game ever made.

Those from the top of my head. Feel free to tear me apart :lol:

Aside from a few well-known genuine rarities, retro games aren't worth the kind of money a lot of them go for and unless you sell games for a living, anyone who talks about buying games just to flip them is not a real gamer, period. If all you can think about is how to make money on this, you've missed the entire point and all you're doing is ruining it for the rest of us who actually buy games because we want to play them.
