Things you like, but everyone else hates

Postby Meta Ridley » 08.15.14 2:53am

Made this to mirror:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4397

I shall now steal the OP and modify it:
"Is there a tv show, movie, video game, comic, music group, or anything that you like, but everyone else hates? Are you sometimes afraid to admit you like it because you’re afraid what people will think of you? Well I won’t judge. Share your raw, uncensored enjoyment here.
I LOVE watching Football. The games are incredibly long and I just do get a thrill in it.
I LOVE the new Cartoon Network and the new Nickelodeon, they threw away perfectly bad cartoons and threw in a bunch of awesomeness 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 bad, and i do have fun hearing them. What about you guys?"

Anyway, I shall start it off first by saying hacking games for the enjoyment of one's self and/or others. As long as the hacking is done in a single player environment or around other people that also want to participate it in the it is okay. In random multiplayer, I don't see hacking as fair in that environment as it is giving a player an unfair edge over another player that was uninformed about it and did not agree to participate against it. I personally use hacking as a tool for the enjoyment of others. One example I will admit to, which will probably draw hate, is Pokemon. Not once have I ever touched the stats of a Pokemon. Instead, I use it to get items, event Pokemon, and other things to give to other people that may have missed an event or need more than one item. I use my power, not for my own gain, but for the benefit of the masses. Anyway, that's my rant.

Come out of the closet and post what you like and everyone else hates. Don't be afraid.

Man, I can't really think of anything juicy right now (does this mean my opinions line up to much with the majority? Oh noes! I must go against the norm and be a hipster :P ) so here's some very small, and arguably debatable ones. hell, I can't even think of anything in real life that I like but most do not:


I really loved the sailing in Wind Waker.

Mario Sunshine may very well be my preferred 3D Mario platformer.

One day, a true hipster must be such a hipster that they think the classification hipster is too mainstream and come up with a term for some sort of mega hipster!

Doesn't really have to be super mega juicy or controversial like ABORTION or something lol

I like: Other M, Shadow the Hedgehog for GC, Mega Man Star Force, and eating with two forks as if they are chopsticks because too many places don't offer chopsticks as an option which leads to people staring or telling me not to do it.

I'm just overall surprised how much stuff that I hate is stuff people like, but stuff that I like I can't really seem to find a sizeable hatebase for. It disappoints me.

I guess more gaming related, I never minded the Prime trilogy's fetch-quests at the end. Though I find the criticisms against them, especially Prime 2's, to be extremely valid regardless.

Oh god the fetch quests. Honestly, out of the Primes I think I enjoyed them more in their numbered order.

Prime has you collecting the ancient artifacts of your lost race. They also weren't super hidden away in a 50 code lock. You use them but before you do I, Meta Ridley, stop you and destroy stuff then get lasered off the edge.

Prime 2 had the key things that I didn't enjoy too much since you need the Derp Visor and while you were trying to get them you were being assaulted by ink monsters.

I didn't care too much for Prime 3 because you got the cells... To get a password to pilot a living boat that opened a portal to the planet where you fight the final boss.

I think the overall searching journey was just so you can get a feel for the environment. If you didn't have to go back to Agon Wastes or Norion they would be kind of a waste of space, no puns intended. My first time playing the Prime games on GC and then Wii were fun because of the searching and effort. You couldn't just run to the final boss and plow their face with your arm cannon. You had to journey across the lands you once visited to find the keys to access the area. On the way, you get more power ups and stuff. Plus, the build up is all worth it because the final area and bosses are really fun to fight (For the most part. Meta Ridley PAL/Trilogy broke my heart ;-; ).

I find myself somewhat fond of Other M as well as putting cookies on my pizzas as I eat them but if I dare admit it I am met with enemy cavalry at the front gates!

Y'know what, I thought Shadow the Hedgehog was a good game.

Actually, I have a much darker secret...
I like Call of Duty.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal and Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V. It's mostly nostalgiafags that hate the new things and ruin it for everyone.

I could never get into Yu-Gi-Oh. Could never get past Yugi's hair, and I wasn't particularly interested in children's card games. Now I don't think I ever could get into the franchise for the same reason I can't get back into DBZ: Abridging has ruined the series for me by being better than the original could ever hope to be.

You aren't alone. I enjoy them too. Their are actually really well done, and are of high quality. One argument people make is that the weapons don't change. If you really sit down and compare, you will notice that most guns have differences. I enjoyed the crap out of Advanced Warfare, and don't let the whiny haters say otherwise; it's good. :X:

Actually Apothem, here we see just how this can become a Manly Card Game!
And I found an old PS2 with tons of games about an hour ago. Two of which being SRW Z and SRW OGG. After I go back in time and play SRWZ, I'll SRWZ3 somehow. I also got Mega Man Legends 2, Legend of Legaia, and Final Fantasy VII so... Once I memory card I'll be up and running! Erm, GameStop still sells PS2 mem cards right? Right...?

I have no idea what that was but it successfully reminded me that TTGL has an awesome soundtrack.

ALSO: I don't think GameStop sells anything PS2 related anymore, but eBay's got'em dirt cheap.
