Top 10 Excuses that Certain Video Games, TV Shows and Movies Have Infamously Used for Their Own Terrible Quality

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 Is helping Turkish Airlines make more money via sponsorship - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Anyone who's watched RalphTheMovieMaker knows what I'm talking about here; this, and also the fact that it's 3D and (optionally) R-rated - xandermartin98

2 Foreigners generally don't understand the native language of the films, so they literally watch them solely for the visuals and nothing else - Michael Bay Transformers

Most predominantly used as a tactic for leeching money off of exceptionally clueless Chinese people who are weirdly obsessed with the automobile industry and don't know any better (yes, it's morally repugnant and culturally insensitive as all get-out, I know) - xandermartin98

3 Tumblr feminazis will viciously attack anyone (especially anyone male) that says anything even remotely negative about it - Ghostbusters 2016

Please do not call feminists a "nazi"
Hitler only cared about his wife and other women to give birth to blond, blue eyed kids.
Feminists of now are not all mad, only your delusions are mad calling all of them Nazis

(cough) Angry Video Game Nerd, for example (cough) - xandermartin98

4 Was made as a painstakingly deliberate parody of 2000s-era gross-out comedies - Freddy Got Fingered

While it WAS actually pretty funny at times, you simply cannot deny that the ONLY reason this film was made was to furiously stroke poor, POOR flipping Tom Green's stupidly overinflated ego (among other things, both of which very clearly belong to animals and are located precisely in their pelvic areas) - xandermartin98

5 "The first rhythm game" - Parappa The Rapper

Well, when comparing it to its sequels, it's really not too hard to call it the WORST either (at the very least, I'd say it's actually pretty close) - xandermartin98

6 Samuel Jackson is one of the lead actors in it - Snakes On A Plane

"It's like people only do things because they get paid.

And that's just sad, man." - Garth, Wayne's World - xandermartin98

7 "Minecraft IN SPACE" - No Man's Sky

These people DO know that MC actually HAS space mods, right - xandermartin98

8 Invokes an overwhelmingly powerful feeling of soulless product placement- I mean, pop-culture nostalgia - Ready Player One

Check out my review of it for an even more pretentious analysis - xandermartin98

9 Has Proof that Nanoha and Fate are a Couple/Yuri Fanservice for the Nanofate Shippers - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid

The NanoFate fanservice scenes, the whole "Red Team VS. Blue Team" mock battle, Vivio Takamachi, Einhart Stratos, the artstyle, and the music were the only good parts of the ViVid anime to me (I've never read the ViViD manga myself but from what I've heard about it, it's not much better.). - PerfectImpulseX

10 "The lore" - Five Nights At Freddy's

Sorry, STILL don't get it - xandermartin98

The Newcomers

? It's Just for Kids, Anyone Complaining About the Characterization and Plot Holes is Overthinking Things - Ralph Breaks the Internet
? The Lead Character Designer is Herself a Woman - Bayonetta

The Contenders

11 It's Ok, It's Just for Kids - Teen Titans Go!

"Kids may be very easy to entertain, but they are NOT stupid." ~ Caddicarus, 2014

12 Came packaged with a free Wii Remote for multiplayer - Wii Play

And what can you honestly say of interest about the actual game?

Nothing? EXACTLY - xandermartin98

13 Were Spin-Offs Of/Sequels to Arguably the Greatest Magical Girl Anime of All Time - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid/Magical Record Lyrical Nanoha Force
14 It Promotes Diversity - The Force Awakens

"It panders to SJWs" - TwilightKitsune

15 Based off of one of the top three greatest Nickelodeon shows of all time alongside Invader Zim and Rocko's Modern Life - The Last Airbender

Which just made it ALL the more disappointing as a result, ironically - xandermartin98

16 It Has the Iron Giant, Mecha-Godzilla and Mobile Suit Gundam in It - Ready Player One
17 It Brings Some Much-Needed Feminism to the Disney Princess Franchise - Ralph Breaks the Internet
18 Has a Great Timely, Much-Needed Message - Zootopia
19 The Title Character is Empowering; a Female Game Character Done Right - Bayonetta
20 Revolutionized Gross-Out Humor in Cartoons - Ren & Stimpy
21 Was a freakishly on-point satire of dumb metalhead teenagers at the time - Beavis & Butthead
22 "Intended more as a tool than as a game" - Minecraft
23 "Good if modded enough" - Skyrim
24 Based off of one of the greatest science-fiction novels of all time - Dune (1984)
25 Has John Travolta in it as one of the lead actors - Battlefield Earth
26 "Nintendo doesn't know what to do with Metroid anymore" - Metroid: Other M
27 It's for Babies Still in Nappies Learning to Walk and Talk, Not "Whiny Manchildren Who Wear Nostalgia-Tinted Glasses Who Whine Over Something They Grew Up with Being Different" - Bob the Builder (2015 Series)

Just LOOK at the comment section of James A. Williams' review of the reboot.

28 Based Off of Everyone's Favorite Toy-Commercial Show from the 1980s - Michael Bay's Transformers
29 Was made by the creator of Rocko's Modern Life, arguably the greatest all-ages comedy show of its decade - Camp Lazlo
30 One of the Most Ambitious Crossovers of 2018 - Ralph Breaks the Internet

Maybe not using those exact words, but they definitely were banking on the mere fact every Disney Princess would appear together (even if it was really just shallow straw feminist parodies thereof).
