SEGA It's no longer thinking, but the occasional topic still pops up. Besides, the Dreamcast doesn't really feel old enough to be called Retro.

Angry Critically acclaimed games that You never liked.

For some, it may be Shenmue...or Jet Grind.
But for me, its Tony hawk's pro skater 1 and 2.
I dont understand how this game can get such high scores. Its boring to me, and the controls dont seem to be as responsive to me.
Honestly, its just not something i had fun playing, and i really cant understand why others loved it so much..but thats just me.
What about yall?
peace

I have to say Shenmue. This is just my opinion, I did not like this game, too slow and boring, as much as I like sitting there watching a video game, I want to play it not watch it. I too did not like Tony 2, slow,boring and same old stuff. I liked the first one better.

NFL2K1. I don't know how people can call this the greatest football game ever. It's mediocre, and not much more.

I never ever liked any of the Resident Evil games or any of their many clones. I just hate the stupid controls for these games, and the puzzles always seem to require the most illogical solutions imaginable.

Any of the EA Sports games, excluding SSX and NHL 96. Madden, FIFA, NBA Live, Rugby World Cup 95 and their Baseball series have always bored me.

Test Drive Le Mans, personally I felt this game was so damn boring. Sorry to everyone who likes it, its not garbage but man was it boring. And im the type of person that loves gran turismo and simulation type racers.

Shenmue most recently, what a turd knocker.

And then there was the almighty FFVIII, the game that should have never been. What a disgrace to an incredible series of games. Fortunately Square appears to be back on track with FFIX. I'm on Disk 3 and am quite happy.

Vagrant Story. Way too confusing, difficult, and too much of the same ol' shit for 30 hours.

And I dunno, but I don't really see how FF8 was in any way that much different from any of the other FF games. But that's just me, and I guess everyone needed a game to hate at the game.

Definitely Zelda: TOOT. I bought it, played it for quite some time, and realized that I wasn't enjoying it at all.

Metal Gear Solid- What is the big deal about this game? The overhead view sucks and it is only popular because of its nostalgia. Syphon Filter is a better game with better stealth/weapons.

Final Fantasy 7,8,9- All are overhyped and shows no innovation at all. Namebrand wins this round

Jet Grind Radio- decent game, but I am not feeling it.

PS2 Madden 2001- Overrated and a disappointing compared to playing NFL2k1.

Easy:
FF VII & VIII: the most overrated linear rpg's I have ever seen. The story is not bad but to me it reflects the same comments some of you said about Shenmue. Specially VIII, a fight starts and then its summoning all the way, watching summoning animation (which can be pretty long) after another. Ok, it's pretty, but after the 1000th battle IT IS ANNOYING. There, I feel better...

I didn't have any problems with Final Fantasy 8 but then again, I understood the junction system, and didn't have to call on the gf's every battle.

Zelda TOOT was good at first afterawhile I just lost complete interest.

Probably Gran Turismo. I got stuck on one of the license tests and ended up so i could race my viper in the sunday cup only...boring. GT2 on the other hand has faired better for me and i really enjoy it.

RE:CV is a game i like, but cant bring myself to play. im never really in the mood to sit down with it, and i havent played since june or july, so i dont really remember what i have to do.

I also hated TOmb Raider 2 from the start (which got pretty good reviews when it came out)

Ditto, magius. FFVII and FFVIII. I hate how Square tells a story (dream sequences, flashbacks, foreshadowing, etc.) Usually by the third disk, I've completely lost track of what's going on and quit playing out of boredom and confusion. I also think Square throws some elements into their RPG's to fuel the hint book market which really annoys me since I am loathe to use a hint book.

For me it would be Ridge Racer

I kept trying to play the first one, but the damn slidey cars and that immense slowdown when you just touch the corner is ass

I tried again with RR 4 bt it was the same crap again

I haven't tried RRV and I don't want to
