Top 10 Things that the Haters of Certain Good Video Games Actually Have a Point About

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 The storyline and characters alike are boring, sloppily written and clichéd beyond words, and the gameplay itself is also about as run-of-the-mill as RPGs get - Final Fantasy (especially VII) and Chrono Trigger
2 The overall franchise is not even in the same universe of being as good as Mario, and its fanboys seriously need to accept that - Sonic The Hedgehog
3 Stole both the spotlight and many of its ideas from countless other games just as great as it was, had boatloads of wasted potential in literally every non-musical aspect, and is easily THE most pretentious game ever made - Undertale
4 Disregarding the fact that it was made by Bungie, the game really isn't any better or any less of a blatant cash-grabbing Call Of Duty ripoff than what 343 Industries turned the actual Halo franchise into - Destiny
5 Game was essentially the reason that Other M exists, and most of its gameplay outside of boss battles is actually a major downgrade from Super and completely misses the overall point of the franchise in general - Metroid Fusion
6 Series shows how truly stagnant Mario has become, and has also overshadowed beautiful and imaginative works of art like Rayman Origins and Legends simply "for being Mario" - New Super Mario Bros.
7 Between it, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword and even Breath Of The Wild, it is by far the least interesting game, especially story-wise - Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

Not to mention the biggest rehash of Link To The Past - xandermartin98

8 Multiplayer AI is terrible, character roster is broken and full of clones, and the game itself misses a perfect opportunity for online multiplayer (something Gamecube was easily capable of) - Smash Bros Melee
9 Game is considered the best of its trilogy hands-down (cough, Um Jammer Lammy, cough) by critics but is actually the worst by far; also, the note-hitting detection is complete nonsense even by mid-90s standards - Parappa The Rapper

No, having catchier music than the sequels is not the same thing as having actually better music either - xandermartin98

10 Is basically just Uncharted but with a zombie survival-horror skin, a somehow even douchier lead protagonist and more teeth-grittingly frustrating gameplay than ever before - The Last Of Us

The Contenders

11 Is Literally Just Fallout 3 HD 2.0 and Barely Even Qualifies as a Next-Gen Title - Fallout 4
12 Is Essentially Just a Less Intelligently Written Version of Phoenix Wright but with Infinitely More Annoying Characters and Fangirls - Danganronpa
