unpopular gaming opinions - here's mine, share yours

Recommended Posts

1) grimdark fantasy is overrated - it's just fad that got elevated because of vocal snobs

2) sci-fi setting is very niche

3) real time with pause isn't turn based - I like both and if you can't play real time with pause like turn based here's tip -> let your toon do stuff real time, don't press pause way too often - hence the name real time with pause

4) the long game development means nothing in terms of squishing bugs or improved quality

5) saying classless system offer myriad of classes is stupidest thing ever - classless system is system without classes

6) cartoon graphic are my favorite graphics and definitely wish there's more of that in gaming industry

edit:

7) bard class, with proper setup, rocks. No, seriously, BG series dropped a ball here, NWN2 and even NWN 1 bards were better than BG2 bards.

1) Real time with pause is a crap combat system in RPG and there is not one game where this system is any good.

2) Unique companions are better than a companions that are possible to be rolled as main character.

3) RPG's with a set protagonist are better than the ones that let you create one from scratch.

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

Dragon Age 2 is the best Dragon Age game.

Bit of a blanket statement, I think Final Fantasy 10 has a brilliant story and characters but Final Fantasy 13 is rubbish.

Baldur's Gate 1/2 have a brilliant story and characters, Two Worlds is utter garbage.

Moral gray areas in games are a lie. Trying to give players two equally valid moral sides (NCR vs Caesar's Legion for example. Or Jedi vs Sith) has never worked, as the sides have never been equally valid. It all is a result of ingrained post-WWII propaganda, from when certain governments found themselves needing to make acceptable that they were supporting Nazi collaborators/organizations in various countries.

But... but... I always thought that Jedi vs Sith made sense in KotOR 2. ☹️

Real Time Strategy (RTS) is a misnomer, rarely ever involving anything remotely resembling strategy. A type of games that became popular with Generation Z, who seems to have the shortest attention span in recent history (8 seconds... even Millennials have longer attention spans, about 12 seconds)

There are MMO's with better story, characters and voice acting (and single player experiences) than most single player games (emphasis on most, if you search long and hard enough, there are single player games that wipes the floor with the limp bodies of MMO's)

Games were better in the 1980's

The KotOR games are overrated.

Mass Effect 2 is the best game in the series.

First Person Shooters and RPGs shouldn't mix.

Crafting is a four letter word and needs to die in a fire.

That's because having only two options is the dumbest *choice* philosophy there is.

Gothic Games -for the most part- do it right, whilst I have my reservations about the Gothic series, offering people three different factions was absolutely brilliant.

You mean 1? Because 2 is (incorrectly) commonly considered the best in the series.

No. The number of choices is irrelevant to validity of choices:

New Vegas, Caesars Legions slaughters people, tortures people, enslaves people. The NCR collects taxes and has nepotism and a certain level of corruption. Obsidian wants you to accept in that game that slavery = taxes as similar evil. Or that slaughtering whole villages because you can is the same as a politician pulling strings not to have their kid send to the front lines. The third option (Mr House), joining neither side does not make Caesar's Legion more valid as a moral choice.

The CIA funded and trained death squads during the Greek civil war. It is recorded as "successful anti-communist operation" or something like that. The people they trained and armed though were the Nazi collaborators. I grew up in Thessaloniki where 46 thousand people were send to Auschwitz. The people who aided in that were then given arms and funds by the US. No even remotely decent human being would accept that. Therefor the myth needs to be created that there is no black and white, only gray, and two opposite sides in a war are both valid. And because we are getting bombarded with that in popular media - be it tv series, movies, comics, literature, or gaming - for decades now, the generation creating content now is propagating this without an agenda, instead believing this to be how they show open-mindedness.

Of course for US dominated entertainment, the argument could also be made that it is the unhealed scars of the Vietnam War that had divided the country, which makes US entertainment pathologically try to make both sides in an argument acceptable. Again though, as we are now dealing with generations who have no clue what the Vietnam War was, we would be dealing with content creators not knowing why it is they create how and what they create.
