Top 10 Things that Certain Video Games Get Hated on Way Too Much For


The Top Ten

1 The fanbase - Sonic The Hedgehog
2 Introducing Raiden to the franchise - Metal Gear Solid 2

Actually since Metal Gear Solid 2 was my first Metal Gear game, this didn't really bother me. - cjWriter1997

3 Basically being Fallout 3 except with way better graphics, shooting mechanics that actually work, and a Playstation port that's actually playable - Fallout 4

Finally found someone that agrees with me that the shooting in Fallout 3 sucks. - Skullkid755

4 Trying way, way, WAY too hard to make the Sonic franchise "edgy" and "badass" and therefore becoming even more hilariously corny and campy than usual for the franchise as a result - Shadow the Hedgehog
5 Being a blatant homage to Mother 3 and the Mario RPGs before it - Undertale
6 Being way too easy and reality-grounded compared to the original Parappa and Lammy games on PS1 - Parappa the Rapper 2
7 Being an admittedly incredibly stupid crossover with a storyline that makes about as much sense as the Final-Fantasy-meets-Disney concept itself - Kingdom Hearts
8 Being far too similar to Team Fortress 2 - Overwatch

Actually Overwatch is just inspired by it (I guess). It is basically the same but there's enough differences for me not to see it as a ripoff. And it's more fun to me as well. - Skullkid755

9 Being a Kirby game without copy abilities - Kirby's Epic Yarn
10 Being annoyingly obsessed with Luigi and forcefully shoving constant tutorials into the player's face all throughout the entire game - Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

The Contenders

11 Taking place in the sky as opposed to the sea - Bioshock Infinite

Personally I think Infinite was better than the original. - cjWriter1997

12 The fanbase - Undertale
13 The fanbase - Five Nights at Freddy's
14 Being that one game where you play as Peach - Super Princess Peach
15 The character roster is hot garbage - Mario Kart 8
16 Not being made by Sucker Punch - Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
17 Not being made by Naughty Dog - Crash Twinsanity
18 The music not being quite as catchy as it was in the original Parappa The Rapper - Um Jammer Lammy
19 It isn't as graphically hyper-realistic or violent as Mortal Kombat - Street Fighter
20 Not being made by Bungie - Halo 4
21 "Killing" the Sonic franchise - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
22 Adopting an entirely different gameplay style compared to the previous games in the series - Super Paper Mario
23 Being total meme bait - Undertale
24 Being total meme bait - Five Nights at Freddy's
25 Being total meme bait - Sonic the Hedgehog
26 Being an action game as opposed to a horror game - Resident Evil 5
27 Being a shameless knock off of Super Smash Bros - Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale
28 The Sonic Cycle - Sonic the Hedgehog
29 Being a knockoff of God of War - Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
30 Being involved in Nintendo's now-infamous Another Metroid 2 Remake takedown scandal - Metroid Prime: Federation Force
31 Trying way too hard to make Prince of Persia "edgy" and "badass" - Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
32 Motion Controls - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I didn't mind the motion controls...sue me. - cjWriter1997

33 Weird Controls - Kid Icarus Uprising
34 Dark World - Metroid Prime 2

39 Introducing firearms into the Sonic universe - Shadow the Hedgehog
40 Being stupidly over-the-top and ridiculous as per Platinum Games tradition - Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
41 Stupid title - Um Jammer Lammy
42 Completely overrated storyline and especially overrated cast of characters - Undertale
43 Being overly reliant on jumpscares - Five Nights at Freddy's
44 Lore that is almost entirely fanmade - Five Nights at Freddy's
45 Becoming more track-centric as opposed to shortcut-centric - Mario Kart 8
46 The Wii Wheel - Mario Kart Wii
47 Not being quite as revolutionary or innovative to rhythm games as the original Parappa The Rapper and also being somewhat too similar to it - Um Jammer Lammy
48 Being sort of just a perfect "middle ground" between Sands of Time and Warrior Within - Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
49 Removing the player's ability to die - Prince of Persia 2008
50 Being easily the overall hardest game of the series - Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
