I love Gen 4
I hate Sonic Adventure 2 it's basically the only Sonic game I hate
I really don't enjoy the Mother series except Ness in Smash Bros.
I enjoy Lost World 3DS
I enjoy playing as the Werehog in Unleashed
I don't like Megaman 2 and I find it harder than the original
Megaman and Bass SNES is my favourite in the series and I don't find it that hard

  1. I didn't find Super Mario World very interesting and its lack of creativity.
  2. Mega drive from SEGA is for me one of the best console from the company.
  3. I find the RPGs (especially Japanese ones) very confusing and frustrating for my own health.
  4. Of all the MOTHER franchise, ''MOTHER 1 & 2'' wasn't difficult.

The first two are surprisingly popular views actually. The Mega Drive is often seen as Sega's best system, and Super Mario World, while good, is often seen as nowhere near as interesting as Super Mario Bros 3 or the games that came later.

I know I'm in the minority here, but Hyrule Warriors is the most fun I ever had with a Zelda-related game. I don't know, maybe I'm an idiot, but that's how I feel.

If you prefer action gameplay/combat to exploration and puzzle solving, this view would be expected.

As for my own unpopular opinions...

I have no interest in the Wii U at all. Every major new Nintendo game announced for it has just not caught my interest at all, likely because they seem so unambitious in general.

I see Miiverse as utterly pointless, and will never, ever use it.

It seems I'm a walking minefield when it comes to unpopular Sonic opinions. Warning, long post and poor wording may be ahead.

First off, I never did say this, warelander, but it seems to be getting less and less unusual for people to dislike Sonic Colors, at least where I've been. If anything, the fact that I enjoy it is being more unpopular.

I already said that Sonic Riders is an awful game, but apparently, people like it. That's fine, I just don't understand why. All I see is a game with wasted potential, mainly due to how bad the controls were. A shame, I liked what I managed to get of the story, I liked the new characters, and I thought the graphics were good for their day. Those damn controls killed my enjoyment.

Also, I don't mind Sonic's characterization in the post-2010 games. In fact, I thought it complemented him well.

Sonic and the Black Knight is an average game at best. Not a bad game, but I kinda wish I had waited for the price drop instead of blindly spending $50 with nary a thought. Heck, I'd say Sonic and the Secret Rings was the better storybook game, which is unpopular in itself.

I found Sonic 2006 an enjoyable title. It was my first Xbox 360 title, and I had fun with it. I didn't find as many glitches as the game was reputed to have, though I did bump into a few. My only real problem, however, was the writing. Though the team was rushed, so I can forgive that.

I enjoyed the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World, warts and all. Sure, the story isn't perfect (why was Tails written that way?), and the designs do get annoying at times, but I thought it was at least better than Sonic and the Black Knight.

The series has always been a bit jumpy in quality. Bad games existed even in the classic era, like Tails' Skypatrol and Sonic Labyrinth.

Huh, that's certainly somethin', most places that I go to still consider it the best thing since sliced bread.
I'm sorry to hear that your opinion is getting so upopular now, I respect it, even if I despise Colours with the intensity of a million suns.

As for unpopular Sonic opinions I have a few more myself:

I don't get the fuss about Eggman beeing the final boss since Colours, don't get me wrong I love Eggman, he is my favorite Sonic character and my favorite videogame villain of all time to be exact, I just don't think that his recent outings as the final boss have done him justice.
I mean look at the Egg Dragoon battle from Sonic Unleashed:

Sure he is not the final boss, but the atmoshphere, voice acting and music really set the mood, not to mention the build up of figthing your way trought Eggmanland (which had 10 years of build up) really makes you anticapete the final confrontation, not to mention Eggman beeing a fairly prominent character trought the first half of the game, because he is busy to even get Eggyland build and he didn't even need to be the final boss for all of that to happen.
Compare that to Colours where the heroes pretty much spent the entire game breaking Eggmans stuff and outside of one failed mind controll attempt,he spends the entire game watching them in his base and only shows himself to the heroes again for the obligatory final boss fight.
Him being the final boss doesn't make it a good climax, as good as he is personality wise he also has to show that he actually cares about his planes succeding, like ya know, actually show himself at points.


I don't get where the massive Sonic Adventure 2 hateboner came from.
It's not perfect mind you and I always understood why not everyone would like it, but the amount of vitrol that this game get's is nothing short of ridicolous.

I kind of just think all 3D Sonic games are mediocre and buggy and are just fun to mess around in, so I actually significantly prefer Adventures/Heroes/Shadow/06 to what came after. Generations was probably my favorite of those but I just can't get into the modern 3D Sonic gameplay. I REALLY LIKED Secret Rings, although probably mostly conceptually (both in terms of the stupid Arabian Nights theming and the leveling/customization system).

Mario Kart Wii is better than 8
It had crazy shortcuts that took hours to master so the skill ceiling's crazy high. Now Lakitu behaves like an over-protective parent. WHY CAN'T I EXPLORE?.
Wheelies meant you had something to do on straightaways.
Falling now has less consquence, you keep your items, so you don't even have to stay on the track to win.
8's a better party game but it's lost it's competitiveness and I'm left feeling "What is there to do besides racing. That's all there is!"

Am I the only one who was actually shocked to see the 2DS getting hate in its initial announcement for the lack of 3D in a 3DS model?

Because I never cared for the 3D. In fact, I barely ever used it even on my old 3DS before I had to replace it. I replaced with a 2DS.

I thought the outrage over the 2DS was mostly over how ugly it looks. I remember more people being vocal not liking the 3D than the opposite.

200cc fixed it! Now there's more to the game than the item system!

Meh, Mario Kart Double Dash was way more restrictive in how you could explore. Every course seemed to have fifty foot high invisible walls around everything.

Well, I've been denying it to myself and to others for a long while, but I already finally admitted it elsewhere, so I'll do it here.

The Zelda series in general isn't my cup of tea. No matter how much I try, I cant get into it. To make things worse, every time I think I finally found one for me, something ruins the fun and makes it so that I don't feel like completing the adventure.

It really says something when my favorite one is Hyrule Warriors, and that's not even the typical Zelda experience. It's a fun title.

That said, however, I can't bring myself to say that they're outright bad. Just, like I said, not my cup of tea.

Well, it's something I have been trying to deny a while now. Looking back, I don't know why. Though it's freeing finally admitting it, I will say.
