Games you've tried to hard to like, but don't.

At the very top of my list is Demon's Souls. I love Dark Souls and have beaten the game a ridiculous amount of times, but after about 10 hours with Demon's Souls I still wasn't immersed.

Others include Dragon Age and Brutal Legend.

Edit: Typo in the title, to = so*

Resident Evil series, Dead Rising series, Bioshock, NASCAR, Medal of Honor, Batman series, Test Drive U2, NFS Shift, Crackdown 2.

Some of these games, mostly the racers are games I was looking forward to and persisted at them but couldn't get into them, others are big games I've tried to get into such as Batman, Bioshock etc. but hate them.

I tried really hard to enjoy Bioshock Infinite, but it wasn't happenng.

I tried Resident Evil games, but to no avail.

State of Decay, I enjoyed the demo andfirst gameplay, that is until I loaded to play again and found about this time thing when offline, give it a chance again, but to be screwed over with resources and morale after loading a third time, I'm done.

Loved Fable 2. But with 3 I just really did not enjoy it.

Uhh, there's a few for me.
  • Condemned 2: Bloodshot
  • Fallout 3
  • Red Dead Redemption
  • Resident Evil 5
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Funny thing is…I still completed all these games (minus Condemned because of RROD). Still, Oblivion didn't age well and I played it in 2013. RE5 was just "meh" for me and Red Dead Redemption was the equivalent of watching wet paint dry. Lastly, Fallout 3 was utterly insipid compared to New Vegas.

I found I didn't like Final Fantasy XIII as much as I thought. The characters were badly written and poorly voiced, and the story I felt was not very compelling. The combat was cool, and the graphics were great, but I just wasn't really as into it as other recent RPG's. I felt the same way about FF X as well, when it came out back on the day. I've loved all the other games in the series(except FF X-2), but those ones just didn't pull me in to the game world and get me involved with the characters like the others had.

Halo: I don't dislike it to be honest, Anniversary was really fun to play. 3 and Reach had frustrating campaigns, but overall they were fun. On the other hand Halo 4 is terrible (IMO). But other than that, Halo games mean nothing more to me. I never cared about the plot, for example, or the characters.

Other games:
Assassin's Creed
GoldenEye Reloaded

I'll probably be roasted for this, but I have two of them.

Borderlands - I've tried so hard, but I just can't get into it.
GTA4 - I just don't like it. Can't get more than 3 hours into it before being bored out of my mind.

I felt the same with GTA IV, it took me a good while before I started to get into it. Initially I was just disappointed at all the changed they'd made and the lack of content, especially after San Andreas.

Far Cry 2 for me, it just seemed so boring... the HUD, the scenery, the characters. It came with a very passionate recommendation from a friend and i eventually had to admit i did about 5 hours and decided it could be traded back in.
Halo 3 i got a 4 levels in and just lost the will to play. As an introduction to the series it seriously put me off, although I have since been told it's sacrilege i played it first of all the Halo games (I was mainly a PS2 player before 360).

LOL Starting off with the third installment of a story-heavy, sci-fi series will most definitely put you off.

For me it's BioShock and Fallout 3. The first two BioShocks didn't entertain me at all. Infinite was beast though. The only Fallout I've played is 3 and I really couldn't get into it.

BioShock and BioShock Infinite. I didn't find anything amazing about the first game, so I skipped game number 2, and was going to skip Infinite as well. After hearing tons of people claim Infinite was so amazing, I decided to give the series another try when the game was on sale. Again, I was unimpressed. They aren't terrible games, but I don't see myself ever playing them again (except to get the DLC achievements in Infinite whenever the Season Pass goes on sale).

Fable 2: I tried, how I tried. The play control was maddening.

Far Cry 2: The game glitched on me so early on in the story I couldn't even progress to the boring part.

Condemned: Story aside, which was interesting. But like Fable 2 the play control drove me batshit crazy.

Fallout 3

- I just didn't enjoy it. I remember playing it and going through one of the first missions in the wastelands and I could not progress because I had no ammo left and there were tons of annoying enemies around every time I respawned. After that it completely put me off it.

I can't remember the last time I tried to force myself to play a game that I didn't like but I didn't enjoy Warframe on the PS4, found it too easy and boring nor did I like FF14 on PS3 because it felt like the average MMO.

I'd have to say the Halo series. I don't hate them, but they're kind of 'meh' to me. Maybe because I don't dig the multi-player very much and the story is kind of stupid? Back in the day I played Final Fantasy 7 and hated it. I don't see why people love those Final Fantasy games. Convoluted story telling, weird combat systems, characters that look like they stepped out of a hair gel commercial, and the list goes on. No thanks.

How did I forget about Halo?! I've tried. I played most of them, but it's not living up to it's hype imo.

I play the Halo games more or less just for the continuation of the story. I ignore the MP nowadays as Reach and 4 were highly disappointing to me. Let's see if they fix it in Halo XB1.

This made me laugh. Not that I enjoy your personal technical difficulties or anything.

That game was a mess but I liked it. I was really into it for a good week one summer.

This is a big one for me. I love all things zombie and I've never been able to buckle down and get into this game mode. The closest I came was when it started back on World At War, and even then the most I would play would be two or three short matches with a couple friends. The convoluted Easter eggs they made the focus later on didn't help lure me in.

I've played them all to some degree or another and I just can't bring myself to care. Reach was my favorite, that should be a good indication of my Halo credibility.

I was very briefly tempted when it went on sale for download to give it another shot, it did sound interesting. That was a few years back when I played it before.

First time around I hit a game breaker that prevented me from progressing at all almost right at the start. One of the very first people you're instructed to meet at a bar during a certain time, presumably to get quests from.... the bar was always locked regardless of what time of day in-game it was. Didn't matter whether it was midnight or noon or anywhere in between. Locked, remember the quest marker was on the bar, telling me this is the spot.... but nope!

I tried clearing my cache, installing, uninstalling, restarting a new game a couple times.... same thing. Bah!

I've always enjoyed the Halo campaigns. The MP, not my bag really but Halo 2's BTB was a blast back when XBL was in it's infancy. Other than that, nah.
