Lightbulb Games that you don't like.. but wish you did!

Hello everyone!

Have you ever played a game that you wanted to like but you just couldn't get into it? I've got one in mind; I've given it plenty of chances but could never get around to finishing it simply because I didn't like it.

The game I speak of is..

BIOSHOCK!

I really wanted to like this game but I really don't care for it. Normally I don't play games (or want to) that I don't like, but Bioshock is an exception. I really liked the environment and the story was pretty interesting, though the combat really pushed me away. It's not a bad game by any means, it's just not something I'm into, and I really wish I was.

Do you have any games that you wish you liked? For any reason like friends playing it, achievements, popularity, or interest in story (but not gameplay)?

Thanks & let me know below!Cheers!

Two worlds (the first) I know its generally rated as a bad game but I really love open world RPG's and similar types of games, I just couldn't get past the graphics and bad voice acting. I go back to it from time to time to see if i can get into it but in the many times I have tried i never can.

I would also have to say Bioshock. I can't for the life of me put my finger on why though. All my mates liked it but I just couldn't get into it. I smashed Andrew Ryan in the face with the golf club. Laughed. And then never played it again. I like the look of the new one coming out though. Hopefully I won't feel the same way when I play it.

I have to say, I used to feel exactly the same way! I never beat Two Worlds *possible spoilers* I only got to collecting two of the relic pieces and stopped playing it for two years. More recently, I decided to go back to it. By disabling Grass & Shadows as well as installing the game on my HD it became very playable. I've since completed it and really enjoyed it. It's got a lot of flaws, but it is a fun game if you're into the open world RPG aspects that it has to offer.

Bioshock and Oblivion, these two are the main games I really wanted to get into and enjoy but I just hate them. Same with Fallout and all the Dead Rising games.

Alan Wake. I actually had fun playing it and liked the gameplay but just couldn't enjoy it to the fullest. That's why I'm gonna re-play it at some time.

Yeah me too.

For me was Borderlands: my friends told me it was an awesome game but for me was boring as hell.

The Fallout games and The Elder Scrolls' games.

They should be right up my street being action RPG's. But I just found them tiresome and bland. :-/

I second borderlands. I might have liked it better if I got it on release but I got it a month later and all my friends who I played with just rushed me through everything. Pretty boring.

Also wish I liked GTA IV. First GTA I didn't like including the ones pre3 and the handheld ones. I just found the game boring and hated the main character.

Bioshock 2. I liked Bioshock 1, can't get into the second one for some reason. About half way done and I'm not sure if I'll ever finish it.

Halo. Didn't like the first one. Haven't tried any of the other ones.

I also have Fallout 3 and Fallout NV. I played about 4 hours of New Vegas and it didn't really pull me in like other Bethesda games. I'll try to get into it again at some point.

Dark Souls
Just got my arse handed to me too many times. I will give it another go, because good RPGs are hard to come by. I just need time to heal

Borderlands. Picked up the GOTY edition because a friend recommended the game and hated it from start to finish. I just want to finish up the Moxie stuff so I can finally destroy the disc.

This and Minecraft. Just couldn't see the appeal of either of those games.

Well I have the PS3 hooked up at the moment and I've downloaded the full games that are available for PSN Plus members. I was kinda hoping for God of War. I don't like the game, but I want to give it a try again.

Bioshock, I liked it and completed it but found it a bit tedious, Halo and Borderlands. Didn't even bother finishing those two.

I wanted to like Minecraft so much because all my friends love it, so I wanted to play with them, but it is way to boring for me. Also probably Super Street Fighter 4 for the same reason.

Halo and Gears I suppose. I mean ended up buying the 360 for it's 3rd party games and better controller. But it'd be nice if I liked the big exclusives. I "don't mind" Forza and Fable, and have yet to play Alan Wake. (Actually on my console, just haven't got around to it yet.)

Also most horror games, I just don't find them scary, and therefore they're not fun for me. But once again, yet to play Alan Wake.

Naughty Bear. Honestly I so wanted to like that game but it was way too buggy and would freeze every time I played it to the point where I gave up.

Fallout 3. Not really sure why I haven't finished it yet. I was having fun with it, but I think a new game came out that I wanted to play more. I know I will go back to it one day though.

I know what you are trying to ask, but I can't say I have anything that fits the bill. If I don't like a game, I just don't like it. I don't wish I did for someone else's sake.

Dragon Age Origins. I love rpgs, cut scenes and long drawn out games so I don't understand why I didn't like this game.
