    I figured that there might as well be one here :D .

    -Vanquish is overrated.
    -Halo 3's MP was nothing special, still great though.
    -Mass Effect 2 is one of the most overrated games of all time.( I still gave it a 10/10, but critic's apparently think its of the best games ever made )
    -I would say Call of Duty sucks, but that's far from an unpopular opinion.
    -Wii isn't that bad.

    Thats not an unpopular opinion.
    Unpopular would be - The Nomad is the greatest handheld every made.

    Yeah, I'm not really sure I get the point of this topic. For every "unpopular" opinion there's a portion of video game fandom that think that way... some groups are just more vocal than others.

    - "Traditional" RPGs are boring and overrated
    - FPS are kinda neat, as long they have epic and large scale battles.
    - Master Chielf is a boring, bland and overrated character.

    I don´t hear many good recommendations from it. And as people like to say around this forums, the character should be able to stand on it´s own, without any additional material which sadly the MC fails. Thel Vadam(The Arbitrer) on the other has in a single game shows more character development than MC in the entire series. We see him doubt his convictions, question them and ultimately siding with the species he was sworn to destroy because he realized just how wrong he and the rest of his race were. That´s how you write a protagonist.

    MC fails miserably at being a main character.

    The whole Mass Effect series is overrated.

    Halo ODST's story was better than Halo Reach's.

    All the Final Fantasy games after 6 were bad, 7 and 9 were the least bad.

    The Kingdom Hearts series is horrid.

    Resident Evil has been going downhill since 4 and Operation: Racoon City looks to be better than 4 or 5.

    - Kingdom Hearts sucks

    - Final Fantasy hasn't been good or decent since FFIX, though FFVIII sucked. Also Tales and Shin Megami Tensei are light years ahead of Final Fantasy in terms of gameplay, characters, art design and story.

    - Tetsuya Noruma is a terrible character designer and has as much artistic talent as Rob Liefeld or Pat Lee

    - Square-Enix is one of the worst companies ever alongside EA, Activision and Ubisoft. Eidos is their only saving grace

    - Capcom is still awesome, regardless of their recent bullshit

    - Mega Man fanboys are as annoying as Biodrones and Sonic fanboys

    - Bioware has lost their merit since Dragon Age II

    - Soul Calibur II is the last good Soul Calibur. Everything after it sucked balls

    - Sonic, Mega Man, Jak, Ratchet & Clank and Kirby are better than Mario

    - Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is better than Marvel vs. Capcom 2

    - Assassin's Creed is overrated

    - Grand Theft Auto IV is boring and shitty

    - Microsoft is the worst first party aside Panasonic and Phillips

    Oh my, where to begin.

    - Multiplayer sucks in most cases

    - WoW was best in it's Vanilla form

    - Call of Duty has been bad ever since it left WW2

    - Square hasn't made one decent game since it merged with Enix

    - BioWare will never again make an RPG as good as Neverwinter Nights 1 thanks to EA

    - Nintendo is out of touch with modern gamers

    - If Valve makes a home console "Steam Box", PC gaming outside of MMOs will die in five to ten years

    - Duke Nukem Forever would have been Game of the Year if it came out in 2001

    - 4chan has put the image of gamers back 10 years in the court of public opinion

    - Angry Birds is boring

    - 3D Zelda games are better than 2D ones

    - The Metroid series is better as an FPS

    - The Halo series was always overrated

    - Sony will never make a good handheld

    - Apps and microtransactions are a cancer on the gaming industry

    - Facebook games suck

    - There hasn't been a leap in gaming since the Wii, and that one wasn't very good

    - There isn't one JRPG hero made in the last 15 years that shouldn't be hit in the face for how they dress

    - Sega should just close up shop

    - Health should never regenerate without a damn good explanation

    - Metal Gear, Rainbow Six, and Splinter Cell games have never been interesting

    - Notch never intended Minecraft to get so popular, and still has no idea what direction to take that game


    I'm sure I can come up with more.

    I will always prefer a good single player to even the most amazing multiplayer.

    EDIT: And also I don't like GoW.

    EDIT2: Also FPS with mouse and keyboard is the most counter-intuative thing ever. I don't know how PC gamers do it. A mouse to look around and shoot I get, but random keys for movement and actions? Befuddling.

    Oh, some more

    -Multiplayer sucks in most cases (the only MP I like is Halo)
    -I'm not particularly fond of games on phones or iPods
    -I don't like how more games are increasingly releasing a shit-ton of DLC, particularly in single-player games that shouldn't need online access
    -Single player>>>>>>>>>multiplayer
    -Most fantasy games have pretty much the same setting and storyline
    -Sequels to games should never be rushed, i'd rather wait many, many years than play something that's good to play than something that's terrible

    - The Mako was awesome and I miss it

    - Commander Shepard should be canonically female

    - Gears of War is overrated

    - Unreal 2 was far more enjoyable than any Halo game I've ever played

    - Team Fortress 2 isn't fun for me at all

    - All Mario and Sonic games are boring and frustrating

    - I have yet to find a game in which playing a magic-based character is as fun or engaging as any other type

    - The only good Star Trek game is Birth of the Federation

    - For FPS, PC > Any console, any time.

    God of War is uninteresting.

    Halo was decent in its early stages and progressively became terrible.

    Call of Duty is overrated and an over-expensive way to charge people for what could be continuous DLC.

    Modern Warfare has one of the shoddiest single-player campaigns in the history of FPS.

    Final Fantasy 1-7 were the best titles in the series...

    ...And Square Enix is out of touch with modern gamers.

    Adventure games like Jak and Daxter, Sly Cooper, Mario 64 and Sunshine, and Banjo Kazooie are better than the majority of shit that comes out these days. (damn shame).

    JRPG's are more ludicrous and enjoyable than Western RPGs.

    Nintendo makes the highest quality titles out of any company...

    ...And will shine in the HD era.

    Boom.

    100% agree here. I know this opinion is unpopular, especially amungst the Lich King and Cata kiddies, but seriously, WoW was best in Vanilla, and still a great game during Burning Crusade. With WOTLK the game went to crap and started dieing. CATA killed it for me.

    As for the Halo series, tried it, hated it. I don't see what there is to like about it. I've never been able to get into it.

    This. I feel like PC gamer's are a smarter species than us console users.
