I never found Red Dead Redemption to be that good. I beat it but I feel like people praise that game so much. It's probably because I don't have much affinity for the "wild west". Someone also mentioned Resident Evil 4. That was another game I never really enjoyed. I didn't really care about anything in the story and the fiddly controls frustrated me more often than not. Also didn't really care for Shadow of Mordor. I thought the Nemesis system was neat and most of my playtime was dedicated to just playing with that. The controls were good, but I absolutely hated the drab Mordor lands. Then when you move to the more lush area it still didn't grab me. I think what bothered me about that was how much it was Assassin's Creed without all the architecture. It just reminded me of the field areas you find in that series sometimes and those to me where the most boring and non-interesting areas. Shadow of Mordor just built a game around that for the most part.

Street Fighter, i can only play for so long before i start to notice how shallow it is, also have no favorites among the entire roster and dislike pretty much all of the design and technical decisions they made in SF5... though i might not be alone in thinking that.

Amen to that. I love pretty much every fighting game I have played except street fighter. I think is just comes down to the fact that combos were a programing mistake in SF2 and playing that game they certainly felt like it to me. That feeling has kind of carried forward into the later entries in way that just makes them feel bad to me in a way most post SF2 fighting games just don't.

The roster also does very little for me. It walks a weird line of being kind of anime fighting people but not enough anime to give them real personality.

My favorite fighting series is Virtua Fighter but I also love the most anime fighters. That pretty much covers the entire gamut of the genre but not SF.

In other opinions I hate Resident Evil 4 and find it to be a terrible game. I find Deadly Premonition to be the better game in every way including gameplay.

Harry Potter. I've never liked when fantasy focuses on children (even when I was a child) or when it mixes the real world with the fantastic.

I know it already has its detractors but I'm still amazed at how many people defend the blind-box system in Overwatch. A full price game with the character customisation designed around free-to-play style micro-transactions. People seem to have largely accepted micro-transactions for a lot of games at this point

I've always been better at answering the inverse of this question. It's more fun to prop up the disliked and the obscure than it is to take a pot-shot at something popular. Especially since it seems like every popular thing has been brought down a peg at some point. It must be the way that I'm wired, but I'm pretty good about avoiding things that I know I'll probably dislike. Like, I'm not going to shit on Uncharted because I'm pretty sure those games aren't my kinda thing, and I'm not going to go out of my way to play Uncharted just so I can shit on that series for being something that I'm not interested in.

However, I have tried to play multiple Rockstar games and none of them have ever clicked with me. Hate is too strong a word, so I guess I'll settle for "Indifference, followed by a brief period of alienation and confusion every few years when one of those things comes out and everyone is talking about GTA or Red Dead but me."

For me it has to be the Souls series. From Demon Souls on up, I have not been able to enjoy them at all. I can see why other people might like them, but they are just not for me.

I am always willing to try new ones or similar games, like Bloodborne still looks interesting, as does Nioh.

@flippyandnod: I was nervous about watching the Shawshank Redemption because of how people talk about it, so I thought there was no way it could live up to those expectations but I think I would put it up there as one of the best films I have ever seen.

Hate is a strong word, but I find RE 4 to be a wholly mediocre game and certainly doesn't live up to the praise bestowed upon it. At least, to me. Same goes for the early MGS games.

"I play on PC" snobbery. I play on PC, and guess what: It is more expensive, multiplayer is free but worse, and it really is all about graphics (which aren't supposed to matter, remember?).

Mario. "Here, have some precision platforming. Also, Mario will slide several pixels whenever he lands." Predictability is critical in platforming, yet people who've played Mario for twenty years can't predict how that fat plumber will alight.

Pokemon. "Collect all of these things." Why? "So you will have collected all of those things."

Star Wars *fandom. It's a story for children, which is fine. So can the adults stop choking up when they see Han Solo in a trailer?

I also kind of hate Blizzard and Rockstar, but I can't really defend that.

As I understood it, everybody hated that movie. I thought it wasn't half bad, the abominable length excepted.

EDIT: I found this really cathartic. I see plenty of people saying they hate things that I love, and I don't even feel like their opinions are wrong. It's like opinions are exactly that for a few hours.

I know it's not the point of the thread, but this is literally all video game ever.

Anyway, Source Code (2011): I must have missed a critical piece of exposition where they explain why their VR rig can create a complete universe to explore out of your memories. How was he able to search the internet or look for a van that he never saw the first time around?? Magic?

What. The. Fuck? Who puts banana on pizza? Just these words make me want to vomit. I can't imagine the taste.

As for a generally well-liked game-related thing that I hate? Parappa The Rapper. It's cringe-inducing, and not in a remotely good way. It annoys me that it's being remastered, because it should be buried in a landfill with those ET cartridges.

The general public did, but critics absolutely adored that movie because.... I honestly do not know (close-up singing? LOTS of 'emotions'?). The movie was nominated in multiple categories in the Oscars, and if what I remember is correct, Roger Ebert (RIP) was the only critic who hated the movie.

Every single one of those movies have the same sense of humor ('witty' quips between characters) which gets unbearable after the umpteenth time.

The last of Us and Metroid Prime.

@flasaltine: @couldberolfif that's what you don't like about them, you should probably check out civil war and avengers 2. If there are other reasons you don't like them like just not liking superheroes etc then they probably won't change your mind, but those issues have been addressed. I would argue they've been addressed since the second Captain America though.

Final Fantasy. I have tried many of those games the last few years and they're all incredibly bad. Im playing through 15 now and its decent but nothing special.

Uncharted 4. I hate this game so much. its a technical marvel but the gameplay is so brain dead.

For games, Bethesda RPGs just never clicked with me. I understand the appeal for those games, but I don't think First person RPG's are for me.

For other media, I know this animation studio has gotten hate online but the kids and parents seem to adore the movies this studio makes, and that's Illumination. AKA they're the Minions people and made movies like Secret Life of Pets and Sing last year. Saw Despicable Me 2 and I was bored with it. To me Illumination seems perfectly fine making movies with light stories and plenty of cutesy characters involved with slapstick humor. They're not willing to go the distance that studios like Pixar, Disney and even WAG (Lego Movie people) have done making a funny yet insightful movies for the whole family.

@oursin_360: I've seen them and found them to be the worst of the bunch in many ways. It gives the illusion of consequence, but in the end it business as usual.

The inherent problem with these movies is they have a source material they are beholden to that doesn't translate well into movies. (Also the Russo brothers are not good directors for these type of movies. I found myself sighing through most of the action sequences in Civil War.)

I like comic book movies, but most of the marvel movies I find to be rather boring, and it's probably because of what Marvel allows. Still better than what DC are barfing out though...

*edit* I should probably mention that this just my perception of the movies. I'm not trying to poopoo someones love of the franchise or what someone else finds meaningful.

Star Wars *fandom. It's a story for children, which is fine. So can the adults stop choking up when they see Han Solo in a trailer?

It's a beloved character people grew up with coming back after like 30 years. No need to hate a whole group of people because they're just passionate about a franchise.

Not a fan of James Cameron's Avatar. Saw it after all the hype. Fell asleep. Was upset because it used the Avatar name and was nothing like nor nearly as good as the Airbender series.

I don't like indie games generally speaking. I tend to enjoy more mechanically dense games and indie games rarely have interesting or engaging mechanics, most are a simple mechanic that barely get time to flesh out their concepts. Obviously not all, but a large majority of indie games I just find boring

FWIW I watched that movie with Rifftrax last year and thought it was pretty hilarious. It's not quite The Happening in terms of accidental comedy, but it's a pretty great example of raw, unfiltered ineptitude in a big-budget Hollywood production on every level imaginable.
