HTC One M8 Review

What massively popular title do you despise?

I_hate_you_THIS_much

The gaming industry is a huge and varied thing and we have games ranging from cooking simulators to flesh eating gore fests. So it’s obvious that there are a lot of games out there that won’t appeal to you and that’s fine. But are there any really popular titles that actually annoy you with their simple existence?

I am not a fan of The Sims, I think the idea is stupid and boring but I’m not irritated it exists. Lots of people find the games fun and it causes me no harm so I can even write about the upcoming expansion packs and the like.

Then you have trading card games that I don’t get and can’t even write about because I simply don’t understand the fascination with them at all. They just have no point in my mind but again they don’t irritate me.

However there is one franchise out there that gives me a physical headache when I read about it. I literally get upset seeing a trailer or listening to people drone on about it. It’s stupid and yet it is one of the most popular games on the planet.

I’m talking about the evil that is Pokemon… seriously look at this new trailer released 2 days ago showcasing some gameplay… in 2 days it’s received over a million hits but it’s complete and utter garbage. I hate it.

Now I’m not saying that everyone else should hate it… just that everyone with a bit of common sense and taste should… but even that’s not the point.

I realise my reaction is actually a little insane over this game and I was wondering if I’m totally alone here. Or is there a game, franchise or style that gets you hot under the collar?

        Oh, you are free to say what you want Lourens, you are out already :)

        • Lourens Jordaan

          I actually like the singleplayer of that which you do not name. I do not despise the entire series…. Although the latest iteration was quite an irritation. But its only the last one. I liked the rest… mostly.

    Hey. I like the pokemon games! Their actually a lot of fun :)

    But anyway, I feel about the sims the same way you feel about pokemon. Can’t stand the sims games. Irritates me beyond belief and I cannot fathom why anyone would want to play it.

    Minecraft…. I’ve really tried to understand why people play this…. Sorry, I just can’t…

    • Deon Steyn

      It’s really fun when you start building houses and furniture after getting enough material together. Also I created a farm so that I could harvest wheat to make bread so that I can mine longer for diamonds, plus I did it with friends but after slaying the dragon I lost interest

  • Deon Steyn

    What massively popular title do you despise? I feel kinda funny…

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Yeah, I can just imagine what you want to say….

    • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

      But you are implying your hatred here yes?

      • Deon Steyn

        Yesterday I asked if “LG is trying to lure us with some of these articles” Now I have an answer. Phew I’m all right now.

        • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

          Where did you find that pictawr?

          • Deon Steyn

            Google Images, I can’t recall the website I just save it to my PC

          • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

            What did you type in when you searched?

          • Deon Steyn
          • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

            No man, I mean your search term

          • Deon Steyn

            Is this a trick?

          • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

            No, just curious as to the word choice. Its a good image.

            That image is, without a shadow of a doubt, from zero punctuation. A british guy that “reviews” games, usually more funny than informative.

            From which of his videos that specific picture comes is anyone’s guess, but have fun trying to find it. :)

          That was my first thought when I saw this too haha :) But I like these kind of articles to be honest :)

          • Ultimo_Cleric_N7

            What title is that? personally I hate anything taht competes with CoD, that the only FPS that matters. :-)
            trololololl HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

          • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

            And to think, you were still in, until now :(

          • Ultimo_Cleric_N7

            I was never taking part in this contest sir. Personally I actually do like the CoD franchise, generic as they are. Black Ops 2 is my favourite ‘social’ game to play when mates are around at my place. some Wine or beer and some CoD = good bro time.

          • Andre116

            Some wine, dine and 69…bullets into your mates head.

            This article is a ruse!

        • mancera

          On this, I asked LG on WeChat if they are trying to take trolls down with their writing… and I got a response… “We always infuse our own opinions with the news. Makes life more interesting. :)”

          Make your own deduction… but I read that as a “Yes, we are making not trolling as hard as possible”

          • Deon Steyn

            Knew it.

          • Trevor Davies

            That innocent looking smile at the end is a dead give away.

            I am with you on this man!

        • Rince an repeat

          I have to say, between Zoe and Gavin, there is something going on… Are you actually still in?

          • Deon Steyn

            Haven’t received a hammer yet so yes I think so. But this article almost had me.

          • Rince an repeat

            Good man, I took one for the team by sending out a brilliant youtube clip on Homeopathy. Fuck, the writers for this site are good man. If it isn’t a CoD piece, a homeopathy piece, or Pokermon! Damn them, DAMN THEM TO HELL!

          • Deon Steyn

            I love this site :)

    Do not Like: Pokemon. My kids go crazy for it, but it drives me up the goddamned wall. Sports games. Sims. MMo’s.

    • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

      Sports games in general, or does one stand out?

      • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

        All. Of. them.

        • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

          Yeah, kinda with you on that one there Mr Tim

          • http://tumblr.exhibeo.com/ Axon1988

            All EA sports games… Maybe that is all of them…

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Question, what about the pokemon games don’t you like?

      • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

        I played pokemom Red/Blue/Yellow back in the before days (and I loved it). Played some of the more modern ones, and there’s exactly 0 evolution in like a hundred games. Only more, increasingly stupid creatures. Gamefreak has been selling the same damned game for twenty years now.

        • CODDAMIT

          You

          mean

          like

          Activision

          does?

          • http://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX umar bastra

            I think You mean Ubisoft ?

          • CODDAMIT

            Ubisoft made COD?

          • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

            Believe what you like, but there’s a world of difference between COD 1, and COD eleventy two.

          • CODDAMIT

            Yup it change the same amount as Pokemon over the years, Pokemon has two on two battles now and even more new Pokemon.

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

          Ah Isee. Yeah I can see why that would be an issue. I quite like the fact that it stays much the same. But I totally agree with you on the silly creatures. Wish they would put a little bit more thought in to them.

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    • Deon Steyn

      Sims 1 was cool because there was never a game like it. It was a unique experience and I wanted to buy all the cool furniture and get my Sim the highest paid job.

      • mancera

        and you could drown them in the pool…

        • Deon Steyn

          Or box them into a room and where they poop and pee and cry all over the place where they starve, but that was after I watched a SAW movie.

    “but it’s complete and utter garbage. I hate it.” …………. sheesh, I am pretty hype for this game, I would not call this garbage ….. it’s the first Pokemon with a new battle system and just a new Pokemon game in a new style (Finally), I’ve got common sense and I love Pokemon, I don’t condone all the random iterations, but hey, they doing something new finally.

    Army Shooters are garbage, Battlefield 4 looks like a diamond but it is nothing more than a turd wrapped up in sparkles. Ghosts? Kill me so I can be a ghost and not have to play another clone. Then we have Sports games that are basically the same game just incremented by 1. FIFA in a nutshell

    2011: Look, FIFA has realistic dribbling

    2012:Look, FIFA has realistic dribbling, but just .. more realistic than the year before

    2013:Look, FIFA has realistic actions, press L3 to bite your opponent

    Ye Ye I know …. OUT

    Why am I so upset by this article ……. need a Steri Stumpe

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      You fought the good fight. Lasted pretty long

      • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

        Yeah, I concur

      • http://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX umar bastra

        It was the hardest thing of my life lol …. when did it become so hard not to troll or get angry at a post lol humans are complex creatures

        • Deon Steyn

          I almost called the boss and went home, but a had a quick cup of tea instead.

          • http://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX umar bastra

            You had tea nearby….not fair :( I couldn’t control it man …. I respect you for not saying anything, with a post like this, it must have been hard not to say anything …. you are a real MAN!

          • Deon Steyn

            I did post a picture how I felt for a second. This article is just bait.

          • Deon Steyn

    • Jonah Cash

      Look I get why Fifa is on the same list as COD, but I trade in my old Fifa and get about R150 and then stump up a further R250 and have a new one that I play live…. I play 2-3 hours almost daily, that equates to a hell of a lot of game time for just R250!!! So maybe my Fifa addiction is good for one thing: My wallet!!! (My wife will not agree!!! She hates Fifa!!!)

        I think its popularity has something to do.. with.. uh..

        Nope. I’ve got nothing. :P

    • Twakkie

      I third that. Its like Justin Bieber, no matter how many time I have tried to listen to him, he still irritates the crap out of me.

      • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

        While I get what you are saying, OUT

        • Sargon

          I didn’t take you for a belieber.. but I suppose it takes all sorts to make the world revolve around the sun without imploding into pink unicorns.

          • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

            Hmmm, trolling me I see. Well, first off, no, I’m NOT a belieber.

            Secondly, OUT

            :)

          • Sargon

            You’re mistaken. I assumed your ban hammer was because of Twakkie’s reference to Justin Bieber irritating him no matter how many times he heard it. Because a ban hammer couldn’t possibly be a rational response to a barely palatable distaste for DOTA 2. Indeed, I suspect your assumption that I’m a troll should afford you the same punishment you hope to dish out to everyone else. Your hammer, sir. Use it. ;)

          • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

            Nope, was for trolling beliebers, and what would happen. (and you responded to me, not Sir Twakkus)

            And no, its not punishment, and no its not banning, just notification that you are not eligible for this week’s achievement.

            Good day sir :)

          • Sargon

            I know I responded to you? At least that was what I intended. Now you’ve confused me. I don’t even know if we’re talking about the same thing anymore. Figured it was for the Belieber comment.. and thus I didn’t troll you. So second hammer..?

            Bleh for the achievement. I never really wanted an Xbox anyway. So indeed, a very fine day!

          • HvR

            Take the hammer and wear it as your badge of honour.

            Indeed, 7th you were. Currently 21 are out :)

          • HvR

        • Twakkie

          What? Lol… ok… Defending the Bieber I see. Didnt think that was trolling but ok.

          • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

            Nope, it was for provoking a response (from initial poster or from anyone else)

            :)

        • Weanerdog

          I find the use of that image as pure trolling, therefore OUT

  • CrasH

    Diablo 3

    Not the full series but just that one.

    When i see news headers on updates or the PVP that is still not in or how they made it super easy now and has blah blah blah…

    The fact it exists and what it is, compared to the previous counterparts still gets me angry.
    Irritaded is a word that definitely does not describe how much this game made me hate blizzard as a whole.

            They’re actually some of the biggest selling titles in this, or any country. People seem to LOVE them.

      Lol, it is the only type of game my wife likes :(

    Funnily enough there’s nothing I actively hate. There’s plenty of things I have no interest in, but I just ignore them. I think the more people that start gaming the better off the whole industry, irrespective of what they’re playing right now.

    I had the same argument with someone who complained that Twilight was bad & the writing was terrible. It doesn’t matter if it is or not, the important point was that more people were reading, and if they enjoyed reading, they’d do more of it, and that’s a good thing even if you don’t personally approve of what they’re reading.

    • CaptainNemo42

      I agree. There is no reason to hate anything. Like you said, just ignore it. To this day I haven’t played a CoD game. Not because I listen to all the hate spewed at it, was just not interested due to my lack of proper internet at home. Last year I got adsl at home and I went with Battlefield.

      On the topic of Twilight. If it actually got people reading and instead of just watching the horrible movies, then I would agree with you. But I doubt it.

      • Trevor Davies

        I like to pretend the movies don’t exist ;)

  • DaxterZA

    Dota 2….its boring…probably going to get a lot of hate for this, some people believe Dota 2 is the best game ever made :-/

    Shame…

    Final Fantasy I can understand BUT ASSASSINS CREED??????

      Everything up until 3 was epic, the story alone was worth it!

      • Tasty peas mixed with porridge

        After the shit ending that had no conclusion and was only designed to tease in order to milk the shit out of the franchise, THEN JADE LEFT ANGRY because nobody bought her game, I went enough is enough.

        I don’t do episodic content at $59 a pop. Then the De Vinci Code came out. I had more fun with that than this drawn out Narrative.

        • http://www.facebook.com/kyle.farmer.927 Kyle Farmer

          Jade? Wow, I lost you on that rant :) I admit, it would probably make a killer trilogy movie. Da Vinci Code? If that has anything to do with Dan Brown… then… *sigh*

          • Tasty peas mixed with porridge

            This cookie :)
            The only reason why I was one of the very few people who bought ASS CRACK 1.

            I LOVE YOU JADE RAYMOND

    Diablo 3… it’s the same game, multiple times, just with harder enemies, besides that… NOTHING CHANGES!!!

    I don’t believe people have got more than 1 lvl 60 character… I battled to get ONE to lvl 40.

    Ok… I’m done…

    I can’t point out specific games. Just games like Dota, Diablo, MW, SC2… and LoL… (hate me for this but..meh)

    These type of games that carry the same shitstained stigma a Justin Bieber poster has on a 12 year old girl’s wall. I can’t stand them, “ehrmagerd!! Check the LoL champs on twitch, watch them Koreans pwn them Nubs!” Overrated and overplayed like any fab set loose on this world by its current money hunger and retarded generation.

    And I fear much like everyone else that this won’t ever change. Just glad there are still some developers out there who still strive for greatness.

  • ALKi1234

    Halo 2….when i got my first Xbox360(before i discovered RROD),i got GOW and Halo 2. And i was utterly disappointed by the game, massively over hyped series that gets under my skin.

  • Rince an repeat

    I’m with you on this Gavin. I don’t get the fascination with this entire franchise. It makes bloody no sense to me. I mean come on people! Thank fuck Darryn isn’t around today… He’d end up back in his shower crying over the delayed release of Borderlands 2 (too soon?)

      What may not be fun for you, may be fun for someone else. Sports fans can recite all the rules or whatever when they’re watching a sport game, I can do the same but only with a Pokemon battle. It’s our own individual human interest. It’s like when people ask me, “why do people do that?” I say I don’t know, why don’t you try asking them? Have you asked someone who likes to play Pokemon why they like it? Simple answer: We enjoy playing it.

      • Rince an repeat

        I am sure you do. The question though to this article, was what game gets to you, this is my answer. I am sure you probably detest some things I enjoy too ;)

          I recently had a change in perspective when it comes to games and gamers. To quote myself: “I may not understand why Mr Muscle has a connection with a racing game, but what I do understand is that there is a connection and that that means something to him.”

    Prepare for trouble! Make it double! To protect the world from devastation! To unite all people within our nation! To denounce the evils of truth and love! To extend our reach to the stars above! Jessie! James! Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light! Surrender now or prepare to fight!
    Meowth!

    Pokemon is a children’s battle game/anime battle, there is no reason to despise it. The Sims is that Tamagoti concept of taking care of something. A guy playing The Sims = take your cloths off and get into the hot tub and where is the sex option.

    What massively popular title do I despise? Call of Duty!!! Bad for the gaming industry. Creating this uncontrolled rage that turns normal people into assholes. Having gaming developers, instead of creating something new and improved, they try to match Cod. People playing the same damn game every day for the last six years and expecting all other games to be like Cod or else their nerd rage will go out of control.

    Looks like Team Rocket’s blasting off again.

    One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. You don’t like Pokemon, I don’t like Fifa. This is just the way we are. I don’t see how common sense fits into liking a particular franchise, but I suppose taste does. However, everyone’s taste is different, so are you implying that people should have your taste? That’s quite arrogant. Hate the game, not the gamer. I play games to have fun, not to be judged by others for what I like to play.

    • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

      I don’t think he implied that, just stating his feelings Kyle

      • http://twitter.com/Technikyle TechniKyle

        So am I.

        • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

          Ahh, but I believe he was a bit more civil about it.

        FIFA’s not a favourite. Hey, everyone I know who likes FIFA tends not to like other games like Bioshock and Mass Effect. Something to do with the amount of work involved?

      O_O rerig?

      Wow dude, why?

      • Mikhil

        This must be a record, for a reply :p Don’t know, just never enjoyed them. I’ve played 1 and 2 episode 1, to completion, but that was probably more OCD than anything else. I find them to just not be my cup of tea.

        • Admiral Chief Combat Engineer

          What did you not like? Story? Gameplay?

          • Mikhil

            I have honestly thought quite a lot about it and am no closer to an answer. The best answer I can give, is that I despise it when people blow a game up to such proportions. I like being able to decide what I like and what I don’t, and for some reason I just don’t enjoy them. Not ambiguous at all, but I’m trying to push two scripts out before 5 so my brain isn’t really coherent at the moment.

          • Brady miaau

            There is nothing worse than going to see a movie that all my friends said was the best thing since sliced cheese. It is built up to a point that no movie can possibly match.

  • Brady miaau

    This whole COD, Battlefield, Black Ops thing I do not get, to be honest.

    I do not understand them at all. But hey, you can play it. I might even enjoy watching someone play it for a while.

    BUT, dry boring games that promise FUN but just tease it all the way through (Europa Univerlas – I am pointing my finger at you – and before I got told I found the game too difficult, I was good at it. then, as I learnt more of how to play, I felt betrayed). Spreadsheet managers with fancy graphics.

    Now Civilization is a spreadsheet manager that feels like a game.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    I can’t stand Call of Duty. I hate it with a passion. When I think of it, bile fills my blood (because of a congenital defect), and it oozes out of every pore, streams down my skin, and collects in a tiny pouch I have just under my balls. I call it the Death to Call of Duty pouch.

    Death to Call of Duty! AMANDLA!!

  • gam3jaxx

    Well … I despise Bioshock and Dishonoured… Yeah I said it and the wrath of the internet will be upon me with great vengeance and furious anger…. I cant get over the little flailing hands and awkward movements. Also any sport titles (tried golf recently) feel like a lazy couch potato and I know I should actually go get the that damn driver from the garage and actually hit a ball, or kick a ball … which I am … but not for this discussion.

    • http://www.facebook.com/zubayr.bhyat Zubayr Bhyat

      Not everyone likes the games, Bioshock 2 was for one thing weak in comparison to the first. What do you like though?

  • Tbone187

    Sims is certainly up there.Complete waste of human energy as far as I am concerned…Add angry birds to the list…Wii sports used to be sooo cheesy until I played table tennis which has hugely accurate and sensitive controls…But no game annoys me to the point of frustration like some of those COD haters that just spill hate at every opportunity…

  • Sentient_Slug

    SIMS, FIFA, ANY CRICKET GAME. I have friends who play 5 day tests on their computers. just wow man.
