    Default Games everyone loves except for you?

    So yeah, is there a really popular game that everyone seems to think very highly of, but you just can't seem to get into it/don't get what all the fuss is about? Post 'em up here, and tell us why.

    Gears of War:
    I didn't like the first one and never bothered with the others, which is strange because I usually like shooters.

    Darksiders:
    Played the first one for a few hours and then thought "why am I playing this?".
    Never touched it again, and just traded it in the other day.

    I can't give any exact reasons why I don't like these games, I just played them for a bit and lost interest very quickly.
    Final Fantasy XIII is another one that people really like, and I don't. But there are quite a few people that don't like it so I dunno if it's relevant in this thread.

    I'm pretty sure the majority of people dislike FFXIII. It seems to be one of the most controversial FF games.

    Oh, yeah. For me it's Fallout 3, GTA4 and Borderlands, because they're boring, boring and boring.

    GTA4 isn't really something I like, I guess it's just the theme I find boring
    Borderlands is ok, but I dislike the look of it and some aspects of it (but I can understand why it's popular).
    Spoiler warning:
    I really like F3, even more than New Vegas...I also like Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim (but not in that order).

    Super Mario and Zelda both were the first games that were popular that bother me for whatever reason.

    The first popular game at the arcade that bothered me was Mortal Combat. Why? I dunno.

    I found myself surprised that I didn't like Gears. I picked up 1&2 without even playing them. Eventually I dropped 1 in, and hated having to cover fricking everywhere. I got annoyed with doing that, and attempted to play like I would any other game, and the first level on the easiest setting was unplayable.

    I didn't like Fallout 3 and Oblivion, I dunno why, they just feel wrong. My biggest problem seemed to be that annoying inventory weight management system, which is hardly bad enough to dislike a game over. I still have Morrowind and Skyrim sitting around unplayed. I really want to like them, but I'm afraid if I try them I won't care for them, so it seems better to leave them unplayed...
    *PSA* Wii Redump collector's can now unscrub ISO files. So scrubbed games can now be verified. You can find the program to do this here

    The weight problem is easily circumvented via a quick console command, that's hardly my biggest issue with the games. But there's only so many generic, copy-pasted dungeons I can take before I want to kill myself, not to mention the inane quests and writing. I usually just go "fuck this shit" and play The Witcher 2 instead. Like I said, the gameplay is just the height of tedium.

    Skyrim is okay for a bit of sightseeing but even that gets old after a while.

    I cannot play any Mega Man game, or this League of Legends thing. I just can't.
