Pretty much what the title suggests. Do you have any thoughts, opinions, or comments that go against the current accepted gaming zeitgeist? Have a bone to pick with a certain franchise, let em fly. No holds barred. Just want to get some things off your chest, I want to hear it.
I'll start us off.
1. I have never finished a Zelda game.
I've always liked what the series offered, and I completely understand the love, it's just never worked out between us. I was too young to really understand what the original was about. I couldn't afford the SNES growing up so I missed Link to the Past. The only one I've ever owned was Wind Waker, which I got a few years after release. I was out of college and working by that time, so I didn't have the to devote to it and ended up lending it to a friend, who subsequently destroyed it. I'd love to get a chance to go back and tackle a few of them at some point, I just don't see it happening anytime soon.
2. I never finished Bioshock.
From what I hear, I'm about half way. I love the atmosphere and setting and everything you always hear, but I didn't like the combat that much. The difficulty swings too wildly for me. I go from mowing down rooms full of splicers to being killed 7 times by a Big Daddy before I've worn it down enough to finish it off. Maybe I'm not tactical enough, or I'm using the wrong plasmids/ammo, or maybe I'm just bad at the game. Whatever it was, ultimately, it just stopped being fun, so I stopped playing. I'll eventually get back to it, just not sure when.
3. I prefer to play Bethesda games in the 3rd person POV.
I just cannot do 1st person melee focused combat. I don't know why, it just doesn't work with my brain. I feel like I'm just flailing around wildly, not sure what or if I'm hitting. It can look a little wonky, but it's something I have to do to get through. I thought it was much better in Skyrim than in previous titles.
