Fire Emblem Fates - I love the series - especially the immdiate predecessor, Awakening - but I found Fates to be really boring with dull characters, a crap story and more anime tropes than ever. It got rave reviews though.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

All the Battlefield games (although I haven't played Battlefield 1 yet, and probably won't). To me, they don't seem to offer any actual fun. In fact, probably all real war style FPSs. Never played COD, and don't really feel any desire to.

Bioshock Infinate - got a couple of hours in, and found it strangely boring, for some reason. Not sure why, as I liked the idea.

Street Fighter 2 (and pretty much all 2D fighters). Sorry, but there it is, I've said it.

Street Fighter games - Never seen the attraction, the games are 'okay'
Pokemon - Was too old for Pokemon when it came out on the Gameboy
Lots of Japanese games - Cant stand the dodgy 'cute' anime style many japanese games have or covers with some young girl dressed up provactively, dodgy as anything

Head Over Heels
Never got on with it. Many seem to think it's a better game than Knight Lore, but I can't see it.

Mario 64, as far as 3D platformers go, I just dont like most of them, played goeman 64 first and enjoyed that more
I dont seem to like any of the Mario games bar 2

Gears of War, hate playing hide and kill
Metal gear solid, a case where the story gets in the way

All Mario karts post 64, that was the point where they became floaty

Smash Brothers series, the whole fighting game but not is annoying

pretty much all of sony's highly rated current exclusive titles, aside from maybe one old favourite franchise. there was a time when their exclusive games were interesting, unique, boundary pushing, risky and fun now they are just utterly boring .ps4 still seems like crap to me, can get all I want on pc and it looks better.

The majority of the top-selling multi plat titles. Battlefield, COD are two particular series that I find rather dull (save for the recent COD in space, which was pretty cool).

Yes, that space based COD that all the hardcore COD fans were apparently "disliking" was the only one that has ever looked anything like interesting to me!

Basically everything that the marketing men tell casual gamers to like!

Military themed Fps, Battlefield, Cod etc

GTA franchise never played them. I bought GTA V after friends kept saying
It was brilliant. I enjoyed beating people up/ running them over for about 10 minutes. Sold it the next day for more than I payed for it.

Red Dead Redemption GTA set in the Wild West.

Max Payne 3
Fifa

online only FPS Destiny, Star Wars or Overwatch no interest just indifferent

Mario 64

Yakuza sorry Shadowman:(

Quantic Dreams' output does nothing for me, though I can appreciate why others like that stuff.

Also Netherrealms stuff, mostly for the fact the visual style just doesn't gel with me. I admittedly haven't played the later MK games or Injustice but it looks really stilted and awkward I dunno.

3D Deathchase on the Spectrum. Played it when it came out and played it on numerous occasions over the years and I just don't see what the fuss is about.
