    Again, as title. ;)

    Two games that I LOVE but never seem to get any praise are:

    Mercenaries 2: World in Flame - fair enough, it's buggy as hell and has shocking shocking AI, but I always have fun whenever I play it and always find myself going back to it. ;)

    The Simpsons Game - as a life long Simpsons fan, this game is a dream come true... FANTASTIC graphics, massively varied gameplay, great story, funny characters, great soundtrack... What's not to like?

    What games to you love that everyone hates?

    Not sure everyone else hates it, but i really got into Just Cause, thought it was a great game. No one else seemed to get so excited.

    GTA4 seems to get slammed a lot, but I absolutely loved it. One of the best games I've ever played.

    Crysis.

    Loads of people whinge about it trying to state that its "all graphics and no gameplay" when in actual fact its brilliant fun and a lot more innovative than any FPS for a year either side of it.

    Show me another game where you can throw a chicken into a guys face in "Super strength" mode to kill him. :p

    Dark Sektor
    Frontlines: Fuel of war
    Enemy Territory: Quake Wars (on pc though)

    I think all of those were fairly poorly received, but I quite enjoyed them

    Crysis, it's so good, so many people hated on it because it needed high specs to run nicely.

    It puzzles me that so many people didn't think it was just sheer brilliance :confused:
