Your Most Hated Game Franchise Is...
Nobody likes Mondays. They suck. So this is a fitting editorial, wouldn't you say?
What's the one video game franchise you just detest? Which is the one that actually makes you livid just to think about? Which do you abhor with every fiber of your being, even if a little of that hate is irrational?
Yeah, I know a lot of people will say Call of Duty. But I suspect the majority of that hate stems from general principle, in that the hardcore see CoD as a representation of what the industry has become: A mainstream industry driven by the masses that will always be satisfied with the same ol' same ol'. The games themselves aren't the greatest in the world, but they hardly qualify as bad.
Me, I don't have one particular series that I can't stand. But I have to admit, I cannot abide the RTS genre. I never could. I still remember seeing Command & Conquer for the first time, and just couldn't fathom my friend's fascination. It was one of those times when you're just plain confused; you can't see how any of that is entertaining. Of course, that's entirely subjective as there are millions who swear by the likes of Age of Empires, Civilization, etc. I just never understood the appeal.
So how about you?
