    As the title says.
    I dont like LoL and any RTS(like WoW).It just feels like random stuff happening for no real reason.
    I also cant enjoy the Patapon series.

      My friends and some other people irl I know seem to like the digimon video game series, but... I dunno, I don't really like them that much. There's nothing really wrong with the games, it's just.. I don't see the appeal with those digimon video games.

        Yoshi's Island is THE answer for me regarding this thread.

        Like, I realized it's a very good platformer, and I don't blame people for liking it at all. But to me, the horrible pacing, among other things, ruins the game. It's just so slow, and the shooting mechanics (which I also think is stupid) doesn't help. I actually saw a speed run of the game a while ago and it was STILL slow as hell so I didn't finish it. Normally to me good level design and good controls are the most important thing for a platformer, but Yoshi's Island (which has both) somehow prove me wrong. Pacing IS so important to me.

        It's definitely a great game and I understand why people love it (if not nostalgia, to be honest), so I won't argue about it. Unless someone calls it the best platformer of all time or close to it, then I will call them out for it.

          Well I know for certain that I do not like Minecraft in the slightest because if I wanted to play with blocks now I would go get a box of Legos.

          Call of Duty...I think that's what a lot of people can agree with, honestly haha. Especially when you consider how many people hate it anyway. But anyway, I've never gotten the appeal and I just think there are better FPS games out there. Though I'm not good at FPS games in general, but still.

          Although I really like Yoshi's Island, I definitely agree with this.

          Call of Duty and sports games. I just don't like CoD, very repetitive and not much improvement with each release.

          Sports games, if I wanted to do sports, I'd go outside and play. Much more fun that way, anyways.

          For me, it's the Pikmin franchise of games.. I've never seen the point of those games, yet there are people out in the world I'm sure who like them. I've just found the Pikmin games to look a little childish.

              Borderlands. Well, I kind of like the gameplay, but the world seems so... dull to me. None of the atmosphere or excitement, of say, Metroid Prime or even Halo. A lot of my friends don't seem to mind though.

              League of Legends. RTS's aren't my thing. I tried the game out but it just wasn't very fun to me. I almost wished I liked it, because a lot of my friends play it, but man, it just doesn't interest me at all.

              And this might shock some people... but Super Mario Galaxy. I liked Super Mario 64, and Sunshine, but Galaxy... I just don't like the level design. Too linear for me, and I honestly don't really like the fact that every level had the same sphere planets. Felt too much like a game, and not like an adventure... I really feel alone on this, because the vast, vast majority of people loved this game.

              Mostly, the FPS genre in general. All of them, in my opinion, are the same thing. It's a war scenario, you're the hero, and you have to shoot everything that moves to get to your ultimate target.

              I dislike CoD (Call of Duty) quite a bit, I find it really repetitive yet most of my friends on my PS3 play it..

              First person shooters and MMOs fall into this category for me, even though they're two of the most popular genres. Actually, first person games in general I find hard to enjoy, which would put games like Minecraft and Skyrim on my list, too. Something about the fake first person perspective never really appealed to me, as I've always found it had the opposite effect on me of trying to put you more into the game.

              Like what most people said, Call of Duty. I don't get why it's so loved when in fact I have this thing against the FPS genre in general. What makes it even more egregious is that my brother is a fan of these games, so that really fuels my anti-FPS nature. Also, war scenes are no fun at all.

              And also like what LilJz said, there's also very little new stuff with every new CoD game as well.

                Like some of the people above said, all sports games. I don't see the appeal of pretending to do something you can do in real life, or even watching sports games. I love Call of Duty though, surprised to see so many people dislike it.

                  Oh i forgot about Yoshi's Island!I heard such good comments about it and when i played it i was like ''How is this any good?''
                  I like Yoshi but to an extent.I dont like the idea of swallowing every enemy on the field and have B.Mario on your back the entire time.

                  Believe it or not i only know 2 people who adore CoD and we are not actually friends.
                  I dont understand why is so exciting killing humans.I only like FPS that allow you to kill monsters and zombies not boring humans.

                    ^Oh god thank you for reminding me of Baby Mario. That's a BIG turn off for me. I'd rather a normal health system.

                    Also I just remembered about Fire Emblem: Awakening. I do love the Fire Emblem series, but the one game from it that I don't like is the one everyone is all on.

                    Actually, I don't don't like it, I HATE and DESPISE it.

                    Though Galaxy honestly is all about the experience so I don't know where you're getting at.

                    But the new game has a dog. A dog!

                    Games, I don't like:
                    - LoL (I gave this game MULTIPLE trys and I've never gotten into it)
                    - FPS (especially multiplayer (which means mostly every one of them)). Well, Duke Nukem 3D was kinda interesting, even though, I never finished it xD
                    - sports games: if you have the time and money to buy and play such a game you would be better off, actually leaving your house and do some real sports

                      Part from the CoD/Minecraft like people have posted...
                      I do not like Farmville as I find it a cheap man's Harvest moon without the Dating.

                      YES YES YES I'M NOT ALONE. I always felt like this game was just too hollow for it's intergalactic theme and I missed the non-linear level design. And it also kickstarted the trend of Mario games relying on nostalgia rather than innovation to make their games.

                      I really don't like a lot of the 3DS games I've played. They either felt like lazy rehashes (Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7), had dumbed-down gameplay (Pokemon Rumble Blast, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity) or were just really poorly designed (Kid Icarus Uprising).

                      I disliked Uprising as the controls were terrible (no, I don't care about getting use to them, they are still imprecise and give me hand cramps), the writing was criminally unfunny and the gameplay was repetitive and felt like busywork.

                      Well, at least the 3DS has Animal Crossing New Leaf, Theatrythm and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, making it my go-to handheld system when my PSP Go isn't around. I like the 3DS, but I was not fufilled with may of it's titles.

                      tl;dr most first party 3DS titles and recent Mario titles.

                      Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

                      I do not enjoy this game at all. I got this game because many of my friends were telling me on how amazing this game was and how there so many positive reviews, so I bought it. I finished the game, but I was left with an overall bad experience. The game was boring, the combat was bland, the writing made me cringe, and a lot of the models in the game look visually unpleasant.

                        Though Galaxy honestly is all about the experience so I don't know where you're getting at.
                        Eh, can you explain what you mean when you say Galaxy is all about "the experience"? Are 64 and Sunshine about "the experience" too?

                        I'm not saying it's a bad game. I can see why people love it actually. It's just not my personal favorite.

                        Well, actually, I can think of a good reason that detracts from my liking of the game. I'm not used to my 3d games being linear. I grew up with somewhat non-linear games like Super Mario 64, the Zelda 64 games, and Metroid Prime. I never really played the 2d mario games as a kid, and I never really enjoy them that much even when I played them later on.

                        The Galaxy games and moreso Super Mario 3D Land are truer 3D representation of the 2D Mario games. 64 is a great, great game. But it and Sunshine were collectathon platformers, and while I adore that genre that is not what the 2D Mario games were. They were "linear", athletic, bouncy, obstacle courses. These Mario games from EAD Tokyo are more like the 2D Mario games than even the NSMB series is in terms of level design and physics.

                        If you were grew up in the height of Mario Mania like I did, or just have an appreciation for those kinds of games, you'd love the experience.

                          CoD, the trolls on youtube, the trolls! And to be honest, other than OoT, I'm not a big fan of the Zelda series, idk, I never found them to be that interesting. Woo now I'm going to get flamed for having an opinion. Oh yes, and Yoshi's Island I hated baby Mario, and his swallowing enemies is kinda a rip-off of Kirby and I love those games. The only difference is that yoshi doesn't get abilities.

                            I didn't really like OoT because I got lost all the time.
                            Super Castlevania IV is something I don't really like either but people seem to adore; I'm much more of a Dawn of Sorrow guy.
                            I also don't like shooters that much besides TF2 and the Battlefront series, but those are special.

                            League. Tried to really get into it but I just didn't like it.

                            I guess it wouldn't be too bad if I was good at it, but in the end I just don't feel like spending any time on it whatsoever.
