Games I Don't Understand People Enjoy

To put it simply, I don't see how these games (or entire franchises) are enjoyed by anyone. At all.

Could you have picked games with a little less flamebait in tow? I mean sure to each their own but you know this is the internet and this is a gaming site... so FF fanboys are everywhere, hell i tripped over two just posting this comment. but otherwise bad choices but good list, in otherwords i think your wrong about some but well put your view.

@Ender_Obitus: I wrote this list a while back. While I do stand by most of the choices, I would like to explain my reasoning a bit better. I certainly wasn't adding games that I knew would incite riot.  It's not like I hate big name games, I just thought this would be an interesting and personal list to create. I know for certain that  the majority of the games listed have an immense following, but that's exactly the point of the list: games that are generally popular that I just could never get behind.  
 
And I do know that a handful of the games are more strategy oriented, but that doesn't mean I hate strategy games. I'm an old vet of Warcraft II and II, I've been playing Civilization since the second in the series, etc. Those were unique enough to pique my interest.   
 
Anyway, thanks for checking out my list at least, I figured most of these lists would just fade into oblivion.

He's wrong about what he feels is overrated? 
With that said, I think it's a little harsh to say that you don't understand why people like these franchises "at all" (and I'm not even a big fan of any of them.)  What's great about the game's industry is that there's something for everyone. Some people like to live out their rock star fantasy without actually being one... and I don't. Some people like realistic shooters like CoD, and I like sci-fi shooters like Halo. 
But if I could add something to the list... Goldeneye. But then again, I can pass that off as nostalgia, which is perfectly fine as far as I'm concerned so long as they don't bitch at me for liking something partially due to nostalgia (Halo.)
