    Text - [-] tobiderfisch 408 points 1 day ago Any MMo I tried a couple and always felt the gameplay incredibly unengaging. All you do is run around and talk to NPCS, then run into a field and kill some monsters or gather resources or sometimes when you get lucky you actually go into a dungeon and do the same thing but this time in a cave. Then you run back to the NPC and click through pages off dialogue. Rinse and repeat I'm sure that some MMOS have great stories but even those don't make up for

    Text - [-] lolypuppy 78 points 1 day ago Pokemon Go player here. I must say that I only played it, because I wanted to catch all pokemon. And I only wanted to catch them, because I like pokemon. Specially the 1st generation. The game itself is very bad. It crashes, it doesn't have most of the features that a pokemon on a Nintendo console has, and its gameplay is too demanding (walk all over to catch many pokemon). However, my love for the 1st generation of Pokemon was bigger than its flaws. In a

    Text - [-] FDFlowrite 463 points 1 day ago Honestly? Skyrim. I don't get those people who enjoy a story that doesn't give you a real choice. (Skyrim does give you at least 1 quest with a branching path, but it's not the norm) The combat feels awkward and dull Leveling to infinity, which as I understand was added later, is never an interest of mine, it just makes all builds converge to one deific blob that removes all challenge from the game. Other petty reasons: I think the writing is just bad.

Half-Life, to me, is one of those games that has an abnormally huge nostalgia factor.
