Oooooh, likely unpopular on a retro game forum, but I totally agree with you.


i agree with this, too.


Yeah, I definitely agree with this. I recently replaced all my retro consoles (just put in storage) with a hacked Wii and it's infinitely superior in every way. Of course, I do disagree about emulation on handheld devices. It feels weird to play a Game Boy game on a PSP.

Comedy gold, man, that's all I have to say.

There's unpopular opinnions, and then there's downright trolling. Stranger's Wrath is a good game though, try that one out.


I consistently hear how awful the game is, but I've loved it since it was current. I've never played any other games in the franchise, so the fact that this one is stripped down is a moot point for me. The freedom of choice, and ambiguous mystery story work well on me; and the world feels ultimately believable.

I imagine a proper Deus Ex title would make my head explode.

- There's nothing wrong with women being sexualized in games. Now if ALL games did that, then that would be bad. In real life, some women are happy to sell their sex appeal and probably aren't offended by games like Dead or Alive Volleyball. Some people would have you believe that games like that or Lollipop Chainsaw are a crime against all women

/agree

- Elder Scrolls games are boring

/agree

- Adam Sessler is an idiot

/agree

- Morgan Webb is not hot

/disagree

- Fuck multi-player gaming. I hate how its taken over everything

/agree

- The Uncharted series sucks

/disagree

- I don't care about Assassins Creed

/agree

- I see nothing wrong with people who collect sealed games and am tired of the self righteous, judgmental, a holes on their high horses about, "games are meant to be played!!!" :roll:

/disagree

- 90% of Let's Play videos suck, and nobody cares about your stupid unboxing videos.

/agree


I could list about a hundred other things I believe that would probably annoy a lot of people, but that's enough

Metroid Prime 2 > Metroid Prime 1

Final Fantasy as a whole series is a bit overrated.

Mario Sunshine > Mario 64 and the two Galaxy games

The Wind Waker > Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword

Zelda II and Skyward Sword and not Zelda games.

Adam Sessler is paid to portray an idiot on X-Play. But if you have ever seen his stuff outside of X-Play, he is a great game reviewer with a decidedly gamer (rather than corporate) viewpoint.

Pretty sure he was refering to his recent antics on Rev3Games, where he didnt like the achievement BROS BEFORE HOES on God Of War: Ascension.

Also, its ok to brutally murder men in video games, but not women!
