#UnpopularOpinions

Postby jonszy » 12.17.10 7:46pm

Is there a tv show, movie, video game, comic, music group, or anything that you hate, but everyone else likes? Are you sometimes afraid to admit you hate it because you’re afraid what people will think of you? Well I won’t judge. Share your raw, uncensored fury here.
I HATE watching Football. The games are incredibly long and I just dont get a thrill in it.
I HATE the new Cartoon Network and the new Nickelodeon, they threw away perfectly good cartoons and threw in a bunch of crap in there like flapjack, chowder, back at the barnyard, and fanboy and chum chum. Also the new popular music that comes out today is rarely good, and i dont have fun hearing them. What about you guys?

Ironically I hate fighting and violence in general, it's hard for me to look at a real life fight or fighting tournament.
And yet I play violent video games and I'm one year away from the black belt.

This thread is very 'hipster'.

Just a heads up guys- not EVERYONE likes the stuff you hate, and it doesn't make you cool either =/

Of course, Mew. It doesn't make you cool, and not everyone likes the stuff (shitty grammar?), but most people. Like Okami. A ton of people like Okami. Not me.

There's just too many whiney, self obsessed threads around here.
How about- Things you love that are underappreciated?
Oh well, each to their own.

That's actually what I was thinking about. God knows I have a lot of those.

See, you proved my point. I fucking hate Okami.

Damn wolf. Maybe she won't suck in MvC3.

Woah hey easy there.

I would agree with you if I got the impression that the people posting in here were posturing as being smarter or better than other people simply for not liking the things that they like. (arguably the real problem would be taking too seriously pop culture as a measure of personal value; whether positive OR negative)

That's not the impression I get:
Are you sometimes afraid to admit you hate it because you’re afraid what people will think of you?
I think that's a very understandable feeling/justification for a thread like this. I hope no one is seriously under the impression that literally everyone likes X and that they are the only unique person who does not like X. I doubt that's the case though. I think this is more about the kinds of people people hang out with and the patterns and how sometimes people get left out of those patterns for one reason or another and it can feel kinda weird.

For me that's been the case with Halo. I don't hate it. I've played it, and kind of enjoyed it. But all the fanfare that goes on when a game comes out kinda passes over my head. I don't really get it.
Who would expect Metroid: Other M to borrow concepts from Super Princess Peach?

Soccer and Brazilian TV shows. And a lot of other Brazilian things.

There's also the other way around: Everyone hates the Star Wars prequels, but I don't have much of a problem with them.

Inception, LOTR3, Titanic, Final Fantasy, Call of Duty, GTA, and much more....

I also share the same feelings with Darth Nanner towards the Star Wars prequels. I think they are awesome!

I think there should be a "Things you like, but everyone else hates" thread as well.

Bear in mind that most Metroid games (especially the Primes) are survival horror.

At least from the perspective of the Space Pirates.

Ditto. Except where I've struck through. <3

Okami
*eye twitches*

You have made a grave mistake. :evil:

On another note, I despise The Kite Runner, despite being hyped as one of the best books ever. Ren and Stimpy is also very tasteless and gross, and the root of everything wrong with most cartoons today.
