Default Re: Whats one of your gaming sins?

Can't believe so many replies have to do with HL2, but mine does also. It's the Gravity gun. Seems like Valve was so impressed with themselves that they made the entire purpose of HL2 showing off physics and playing with that stupid gun. Between all the Gravity gun stuff and the lame buggy parts, HL2 was far inferior to the first game and I still haven't managed to force myself to finish the episodes.

Oh, and I know people will just think this is an "I hate Valve" thing, but Portal is one of the most overrated series of all time. It's a fun puzzler and a time waster, but the dialogue is the only part about either game that makes them stand out. They certainly don't deserve to be Goty contenders. Coming up with a great meme that every moron and his brother will use for a decade doesn't make a great game.

The first time i played half life 2 i was very impressed with the physics of the gravity gun and the water effects blew my mind. Disagree with most here and would say Half Life 2 is one of my all time faves...

Hated Modern Warfare 2 MP for being peer hosting, but still played it :/ Eventually it ruined the game for me....

I've always hated the Battlefield series, and I have never finished either Morrowind or Oblivion because I always lose interest in the game after about 4-5 hours of gameplay. Strangely, I played through Fallout 3 and all its DLC. I was going to add The Witcher to that list, but suddenly a lightbulb came on in my head and I finished the first chapter yesterday, after years of repeated attempts to stay interested. Maybe I can make it through this time, because I want to play the Witcher 2 afterward!

I never liked Team Fortress 2, especially now since I haven't played it in a while and I don't know what all this loot or whatever is about. The community is horrible as well.

I'm probably gonna get flamed for this, but I didn't like Metro2033 (sorry grey). The game started out boring (to me), and by the time the action came around, I've already lost interest. It was hared for me to really understand what they were trying to do in the game.

There are more games that I don't like as well, and will post about them later.

Ah gonna have to agree. I also can't stand Stalker or any of those eastern-european developed games. They're just so bleak and awkward.

I guess consoles and the whole movement to make games dummer for the whole massmarket "idiot" crowd.

There are dozens and dozens of games suffering from this sin.

Far Cry2
Dragon Age 2
Oblivion
Prototype

just few listed

I played through Dragon Age 2 but it took a while to sink in how bad the game really was. Truly a piece of garbage. I think that's the general opinion though.
