Thumbs down Games people rate which you just can't seem to get into?

Title says it all what game do people rate highly but your not to fond off

Prime example for me is dead space I'm into chapter 4 and just can't get into it

The Mass Effect Trilogy, I only played a bit of ME2 and the story complete never got my interest.

Bethesda games. Loved Morrowind, played it some crazy amount of hours. But Oblivion and Skyrim are pretty far steps backwards in comparison minus the combat improvement and obvious graphical improvement. Although the combat still sucks. I want to like them, but between going backwards from what they used to be good at and ruining Fallout by making it Oblivion with guns...I just can't enjoy the garbage they produce.

Every chance you get... lol

Only game I can think of is Dead Rising. I love zombies and most things zombie related, but I couldn't get into Dead Rising. Think it had something to do with being timed. You're timed in Dead Rising, right? Or maybe I'm thinking of something else...lol

Bulletstorm- Just way too repetitive for my liking. You'll basically be killing the same 5 enemies with the same 5 objects throughout the majority of the game. The dialogue is funny at times, but mostly juvenile and tiresome.

Crackdown- Did not like this game at all. If it wasn't for the coop then I would have hated it even more. I thought the sequel was a vast improvement and actually enjoyed that one.

Dead Rising 2- Loved the original and was disappointed with this one, especially the lameass 'psychopaths' and the ridiculously long loading screens.

Halo 3- There's not one thing I liked about this game. Hated the single player, coop, and multiplayer. I even hated the achievements LOL.

GTA IV- This one was a HUGE disappointment for me. Horrible driving mechanics, clunky controls, and average multiplayer. It's not a bad game, but it could have been a hell of alot better IMO.

Singularity- I really don't understand what everyone's love affair is with this game. I thought it was very average with a gimmick that's been done before in games like Timeshift and Wolfenstein. The multiplayer, on the other hand, was surprisingly enjoyable.

Bioshock, Resident Evil, Dead Rising & Fallout games. Played at least one or two games from each series and I pretty much can't stand them. I should probably give Bioshock another go but games like Dead Rising just make me sick.

Assassins Creed - the first was too repetitive for me, after that it was fine.

Oblivion/Skyrim - I 1000G'ed Oblivion and that was it, never bothered with Skyrim.

Assassin's Creed. I've only ever played the first one, and I just couldn't get into it. It's still a good game, but it's not a game I'm used to playing.

Borderlands... I just couldn't get into it...

Dead Space, I played a majority of the first, but it just seemed to get boring as I went.

Bioshock, Gears of War, Oblivion come to mind right now. I'm sure they're great games, I just couldn't get into them and have fun.

Minecraft seems to be the biggest one. I'm not very creative so theres little for me to do in Minecraft.

Dishonored and Deus Ex. I figured out I don't really enjoy games with a sneak element to it

The most recent example for me would be Dishonored, I can see where it gets its appeal but for the life of me I just couldn't like it as much as everyone was saying I should, it just felt like it wasn't quite as good as all the hype made it out to be

You can play both without ever needing to sneak, infact I found Dishonored to be much more fun that way.

Bioshock - I don't see the appeal to it

Mass Effect - Why does everyone have a hard-on for this series?

Gears of War - I played the first one a lot, but it wasn't even good. Don't know why it's everybody's "go-to" game lately

Dead Space - don't care for it after playing the first one

Resident Evil - which is funny cause I've played 5 & 6, because I wanted a good Co-Op game with my friend, but the games were boring and sucked

being a huge survival horror fan, I can never get into Bioshock, it's just way too overrated imo. I can't stand Mass Effect as well, I played the 1st, I should probably play the 2nd, since it's considered the best in the series but idk!

It's funny that so many people have said Dead Space. I actually just beat it last night after not playing it for almost a year and I really enjoyed it. Now, I need to play DS2 before the new one.

My game that I can't get into is Call of Duty. After playing MW and MW2, I just can't play COD anymore after falling in love with Battlefield 3. I even got Black Ops 2 as a gift and have yet to play it.

I really like Dead Space, despite the fact that I've only ever played the first one.

OT; I could never get into the gameplay of Assassins Creed. I've only played the first title but I just couldn't get into the game. I did like the story & I do recognize it as a good game, it's just that I couldn't get into it. Something to do with the gameplay mechanics that pushed me away.
