Default Unpopular gaming opinions thread

Super mario 64 sucks!

Physics suck, camera ruins my jumps and makes me wanna die, Mario moves way too fast, game is incredibly simplistic and forgettable, lacks depth, and has numerous unpolished mechanics.
How people can prefer that game over banjo-kazooie is beyond meÖ

Not that itís bad, just when your gameís controls are like trying to drive a shopping cart on a tight rope, thatís when I smash my tv and have a voracious desire to punch the game developers!

games that don't focus on gaining mechanical or mental skill are all garbage.

games where you kill the enemy and improve your abilities to kill the enemy are good

I would say Mario 64 hasn't aged very well to today's standards. So in essence... it does suck "now," but back then it was one of the first 3D platformers. Check out other 3D platformers from that year (1996), tell me if they compare to what SM64 achieved, lol.

There was a 3D platformer in 1995 called "Jumper Flash!" for the Playstation. Suffice to say, if you don't know about that, then don't worry, it's one of those old forgotten stinkers that no one paid much attention to. Other 1996 releases that fit the genre are Crash Bandicoot and... (lol) Bubsy 3D. You can't really compare Crash to Mario though since those are two different ways to platform (linear stiff progression vs open miniature sandbox worlds). Those closest is Bubsy 3D but... look, you don't want to play that game, if you want a game that truly sucks, it's that one.

...

Anyways, my little tangent aside...

...I actually, unironically, love Sonic 06 for all the design flaws it spawned. It's one of those "so bad it's good" games, and it's just so immensely fun to play through. Only downside... it eats up a lot of time because you'll spend most of it IN GOD DAMN LOADING SCREENS, FUCK. If there was any way I could go through the game without dealing with it, the game would actually be one of my favorite (bad but good) games to play through from time to time.

I mean...



You got things like this in the game, and it's just so good.

But as it is...

*sigh*

That title goes to the original Sonic Adventure, goodness what a glitchy mess that game is. The cheesy lines and broken mechanics are just icing on a delicious cake of a shit game.



Iconic and never gets old.

Unpopular opinion, sonic 06 is one of the best sonic games, the movement for speedrunning it is surprisingly consistent and very fast

unpopular opinions huh

the source engine is engineered perfection and every fps game should strive to aim for it's greatness

too many developers just forget how much enjoyment there can be had from having proper physics in a game. they make these one-off shooters with a really cool story and wow but the games end up being shallow as fuck.

let's not forget movement either. from the days of quake, to half-life, to something else, movement has slowly lost it's place in the circle of competitivity, where it once was so, so important.

I agree for the most part, I think mario galaxy did a decent job, but I hate how everything feels so soft and buttery and non responsive nowadays.

I think Jet Force Gemini was the precursor to my love for Starship Troopers.

I donít really have many unpopular game opinions. But I guess, most modern/new games with over the shoulder/FPS/ 3rd person all kind of look the same, and I hate the wannabe realism in most PS4 games, they just look like whatever engine. People need to bring style back.
