Worst Reasons to Hate a Video Game

drdevil
Some people have pretty pathetic reasons for hating video games. Here are some of them.

The Top Ten

1 Everyone else hates it

Having your own opinion is a far cry from adopting somebody else's. It's not easy to know what a game will be like to play until you try it out for yourself! - Entranced98

Don't let others influence your opinions. - drdevil

2 It came out years ago

Some retro video games have such great gameplay that they still feel fresh today, and even a few modern games surely have plenty of qualities that won't age. Plus, we can't stop time, so why should it stop our appreciation of things? - Entranced98

And... your defense, no seriously what's your real defense? - htoutlaws2012

3 Its fandom is cancerous

So Minecraft's fandom is cancerous like Undertale's is.
Both get bad reps, but are good games.
That's terrible! Why do fandoms ruin everything...? - mattstat716

4 It isn't 100% politically correct

This should be at the top. The politically correct people would be the ones complaining that a game doesn't suit their taste, then when the developer does something according to what they said, they are still not pleased. - NuMetalManiak

5 It is low budget

What counts most is the effort and passion put into making a game that plays beautifully. How much money goes into it doesn't matter as long as it's enjoyable, challenging and user-friendly. - Entranced98

A game that is low budget could still be amazing; a game that is high budget could still be awful. - drdevil

6 Someone you hate likes it
7 It has mediocre or bad graphics

Favouring graphics over everything else is in fact one of the worst issues that has plagued modern video games. I appreciate the effort that has gone into graphics, but they shouldn't cast a shadow over gameplay. I'd much rather play a good game with awful graphics than a terrible game with amazing HD graphics any day. - Entranced98

Okay it may look like crap, but what if it plays great then what are you going to say next? - htoutlaws2012

A game with mediocre graphics could still have amazing gameplay, story and music. - drdevil

8 It's too difficult for you, but not for others

There's no excuse to not practice some similar, easier games from the same genre first. I remember getting absolutely nowhere with shmups a while ago, but I tried Pop 'n Twinbee (which is fairly easy for a shmup-type game) to learn the ropes - I started to get much better at them and move on to the much more difficult Darius Gaiden. For pretty much any genre, working your way up from the bottom is a much more smooth and motivating approach than throwing yourself straight in the deep end. - Entranced98

9 It has annoying music

Not a reason to hate the entire game. If you dislike it, just turn the music off and play something of your liking. - drdevil

Looping music over and over is the difference, but not 75% of the time. - htoutlaws2012

10 The characters aren't hot

Good gameplay is more important than attractive characters. Can't believe people actually hate games for this reason. - drdevil

The Contenders

11 It was made in a foreign country

This is just racist. - drdevil

12 It isn't available for your console
13 It isn't in English
14 It was made by Nintendo

This has Xbox fans written all over it.

15 It isn't rated M by ESRB

Enough of this.

16 It has a thin plot
17 There are a few bad characters
18 The graphics aren't realistic
19 It's your enemy's favorite
20 It's your friend's least favorite
