Games don’t have to be prestigious award-winners to justify your time and money

Like most people, I love an expensive blockbuster movie. While the incredibly rich world of Red Dead Redemption 2 completely blew me away, in God Of War I liked to get mad at everything because I didn’t have hair. Even The Last Of Us Part 2… yeah, it wasn’t bad I guess. Very good. I loved it but not in my top ten PlayStation games.

Maybe you’ll consider it a masterpiece and that’s fine. Different people like different things.

There is no game that is liked by everyone who plays it, and you also don’t necessarily have to like a game to enjoy playing it. If you sit down and think about it (don’t be offended if you don’t, I know you’re busy) you’ll realize that for every game that surprises you, there will be at least ten favorites – just a lot less. And I bet there are a few on this ten list that other people actively hate. Especially if the edges are a little rough.

Apex Legends

past is flawed

Aliens: Colonial Marines

The PS3’s library was full of flawed games. Mercenaries 2 was ugly and unfocused, but it provided a great sandbox to play with vehicles and blow things up. Stranglehold was a bit cumbersome and often frustrating, but it was great at making you feel cool while starring in your own John Woo movie.

Resident Evil 6 sucks in some parts, but it still has its glorious moments. Even the infamous Aliens: Colonial Marines, as long as you love Aliens enough (and don’t we all love Aliens?)

It’s disappointing when a game has outdated character models or surprisingly stupid AI or scenarios that hold you back, or largely empty environments or a shoddy framerate. But as a saying I just made up, ‘be a noble raccoon, not an arrogant peacock’. If you don’t enjoy a game, stop playing it; it doesn’t feel good to me.

But on the other hand, don’t dismiss a game just because it doesn’t look super shiny and isn’t covered in perfect scores. Show some love to the little ones in the litter and sometimes the little ones will love you too.

Games don’t have to be prestigious award-winners to justify your time and money

Like most people, I’m a sucker for an expensively-produced blockbuster. I loved being angry at everything for my lack of hair in God Of War, while the mind-blowingly rich world of Red Dead Redemption 2 completely blew me away. Even The Last Of Us Part 2 was… yeah, not bad, I suppose. Quite good. I liked it, but it doesn’t make my top ten PlayStation games. 
Perhaps you consider it a masterpiece, and that’s okay. Different people like different things.
There’s no such thing as a game that’s loved by every single person who plays it, and besides, you don’t have to absolutely love a game in order to enjoy it. If you sit down and think about it (I won’t be offended if you don’t, I know you’re busy), you’ll realise that for every game that amazed you, there will be at least ten that you liked – just a lot less. And I bet there are a few in that list of ten that other people actively hate. Especially if they’re a little rough around the edges. 

Past imperfect

PS3’s library was crammed full of lovably imperfect games. Mercenaries 2 was ugly and unfocused, but provided a great sandbox for playing around with vehicles and blowing stuff up. Stranglehold was a little clunky and often frustrating, but it was brilliant at making you feel cool while starring in your own John Woo movie. 
Resident Evil 6 is abysmal in parts, but still has moments of greatness. Even the notoriously bad Aliens: Colonial Marines has some fun that you can drag out of it, provided you like Aliens enough (and don’t all of us like Aliens?).
It’s disappointing when a game has outdated character models, or bafflingly stupid AI, or scenery that grabs you back, or largely empty environments, or a shoddy framerate. But as the saying I just made up goes, ‘Be not a haughty peacock, but a noble raccoon’. If you’re having no fun with a game, stop playing; it doesn’t sound any good to me.
But, on the flipside, don’t dismiss a game outright just because it doesn’t look super-shiny and covered in perfect tens. Show the runts of the litter some love, and sometimes the little critters will love you back.
