Are there specific genres of games you dislike entirely (or almost entirely)?

For the sake of the thread, let's not count sport games.

The vast majority of JRPGs.

It's a shame, because I enjoy every aspect of JRPGs apart from the actual gameplay - they tend to have very good atmosphere, music and interesting stories. I completed Final Fantasy X and others when younger, but realised it had become a chore to finish and I was only playing to get to the next cutscene.

I just find the grinding/turn-based battles very repetitive and unengaging. I only enjoy action-based battle systems such as in Nier, and those games are quite few in number.

I've never disliked the entirety of a genre before, I can find numerous things that are likable to me in all of them.
But there are a few select franchises in most that drive me up the wall. Pokemon being one of them. The games are all so brain dead that I can't understand how anyone could find them enjoyable. There's so many quality, actually thought provoking RPG titles out there but all most people want to play is shit like final fantasy and persona.
This extends well and beyond RPG's of course, it's just the best example I could give at the moment.

Come on now, there's gotta be something you're sick of seeing get over used in videogame after videogame.
Something you wish they would just stop with already.

Personally, for one, it's most modern games limiting how many weapons you can cary at any one time to just two or three.
useualy being, one small weapon, such as a hand gun, and one or two bigger guns.
This I suspect to be not for realism, but to cover for their own laziness and unwillingness to make more available weapons for the game.

>because first person perspective is cool as fuck and allows you to immerse into the world easier
I find it easier if the game has a very large and detailed world, regardless of perspective.
I played a lot of shooters and the only ones I could really immerse myself in was Stalker and Fallout.
Stalker has a great atmosphere, especially with graphic mods. Fallout has the very open and detailed world I was talking about. The atmosphere is pretty nice and creepy too but it shames compared to Stalker's.
Stalker is way more realistic, especially if you play it at the original difficulty.
You and your enemies can't take 5 shots at the head and still be fine like it often happens in fallout.

I figure they can check with your credit card operator, it's not unheard of people losing their accounts by faking their location to get lower prices.

But yeah, companies and governments imposing physical world-like constraints on digital goods is a bitch, not only in videogames.

Nintendo games are more casual and relaxed, the stuff lolis other than Tomoko Kuroki would play as opposed to most PS4 and XBox games which are all hardcore people and 13-year old boys being dicks on voice chat.

Maybe a good AI in the next 10 years though that is unpredictable enough? Just a pad sitting on the ground plugged in like a controller which you can see a virtual friend doing whatever on if you wear special goggles. Heh...

I definitely don't agree with that. Nintendo games are notoriously difficult, the phrase "Nintendo-Hard" exists for a reason.
Playstation and XBOX have plenty of casual stuff like sports games, vocaloid/rhythm stuff, VNs, iM@s, etc, the only real difficulty comes from trying to control FPS games with a controller. I'll give you the 13-year-old community, though...

I dunno, personally I got 93% in Super Meat Boy (Cleared all light and dark worlds) once and when I look at today's Mario it seems really forgiving in comparison and now I just wanna play co-op with loli friends haha. I don't own a Wii U though. Last Zelda game I played was Skyward Sword in August, I didn't get stuck for too long in most of the places -- think it's easier than the N64 ones.

I'm shit at FPS, never play em I guess.

Most of those handheld series had no chance of appearing on Vita. Especially not SMT IV, which made blatant references to Strange Journey. Even moreso when you consider the DeSu spinoffs, port of Soul Hackers, and the enhanced ports of DeSu 1 and 2. They could have fought for Soul Hackers since it was also on the PS1, but I doubt Atlus would put one SMT game on Vita while releasing 4 more on 3DS. It's the same reason you see the same genres on each handheld. Vita has lots of VN, jrpg, rhythm, monster hunting, and dungeon crawling. And of course, after the success of Ragnarok, Toukiden, Soul Sacrifice, and God Eater, now we see Capcom supporting the platform. You can't really blame them for losing MH because Capcom signed that contract many years ago. I don't know what they were thinking initially by putting Tri on the Wii, but Nintendo must have made them a better offer. Nintendo definitely did more for Capcom overseas. I don't care what Sony did or didn't do involving the localization of P3rd, but they should have done better and released the game overseas. I doubt Capcom was happy with them. Capcom made their contract worth their while, expanded their fanbase, and now they're playing with every platform.

3DS did have a horrific launch year but they still sold 17 million 3DSes by the time the Vita was released in the US and Europe. There's just no coming back from that. Sony had an opportunity when Nintendo cut the price to $170 and they didn't take advantage of it. Sony should have undercut Nintendo and sold the Vita for $150 bundled with 8gb memory. There's no way Nintendo could afford to go lower. It didn't really matter what games Sony got for the Vita. Even if they had MH4 at launch, the console cost anywhere from $100 to $180 more than the 3DS. That's a huge deal. The Vita launch was the worst aspects of the PS3 launch all over again. Obscure games on an expensive platform is an awful strategy. No matter how good Gravity Rush is, people aren't going to spend $300+ for a game they know nothing about. Nintendo has the right idea releasing series that people are familiar with.

I think popularity is irrelevan

Going to buy a Vita Slim soon.

I had a 3DS briefly, but didn't like the hardware and wasn't impressed by the games. I tried a Vita in the store and was blown away, and am pleasantly surprised by how many good games it seems to have.

It's getting a 2nd Hatsune Miku title soon too!

Tell me about your favorite video game artist.

Mine is Kazumo Kaneko. aka the guy who does the character and demon art for the Shin Megami Tensei games. I love his style and especially his strange demon designs. Sometimes they're sort of traditional-looking, but most of them are interesting takes on mythological and religious figures. I also love how Demi-Fiend here is grabbing Angel by the head, as though he was some kind of demonic pimp. She's obviously not enjoying it.

Honorable mentions to Ryoji Majima and Takehito Harada, the artists who did the designs for all of Nippon Ichi's games (La Pucelle, Disgaea and all the spinoffs) as well as to the artist for the Ar Tonelico games whose name I've forgotten.

Yoshitaka Amano. God this man is amazing, all his designs are beautiful and his style is just so damn unique.

Yuji Himukai also is cool, even though I guess his art isn't as "technically" good as Amano, I'm just amazed he somehow manages to draw awesome boss designs as well as really cute girls in Etrian Odyssey.

Let's talk about co-op games. Maybe we can find one that we can play together.

Does anyone like Doom? The gameplay is simple, and it runs on nearly all computers. I'd set us up a server (using Skulltag), but my ISP doesn't allow me to open ports.

I won't recommend this game to you because the customization is very limited, but it's slightly relevant to this thread. I made Kiryuuin Satsuki in Soul Calibur V today. I didn't care to learn the game all that much until I recreated her. It seems so hard compared to other fighters I've played.
