X you hate that everyone else likes.

Elder Scrolls games and Fallout games.
I really, really don't understand it. I've tried multiple games in both series, and I absolutely couldn't stand them. Yet people sing their praises like the two franchises are some kind of gift from a higher power.
I suppose some people like aimlessly wandering around gigantic game worlds with no clear goals other than 'go in this vague direction, something might be there but we're not telling you what it is'.

Tomatoes. I fucking hate them. I loathe them withe very inch of my very being.

I wouldn't say hate (I actually enjoy them) but I don't get the appeal of the Uncharted games. Yes the characters are great and I love climbing around the enviroments but the story has been told so many times before and the combat is awful.

Song of Ice and Fire. I have no idea why people like it, it's not that well written, and the story isn't engaging. Those few moments when it tries to pull you in, the author immediately punishes you for being engaged.

Oly J:
football/soccer if you're american, I just don't see the appeal, but being english, I can't get away from it, it's not exactly that I hate the sport it just bores me, actually I hate the fans, or rather, the fans that take it far too seriously, of which I have encountered far too many

I know how you feel. I too am English and I too hate football. Not helped by the fact that my dad and two brothers can never find anything else to talk about.

I hate it when people say they hate things when they should be saying they dislike things.

OmniscientOstrich:
Forrest Gump. It's schmaltzy, contrived, pretentious, platitudinous Oscar bait that panders to American self-importance. As for others liking it? I don't give a shit. Subjectivity is subjective.

Also liquorice. That stuff is disgusting. >.<

Really? Forrest Gump is my second favorite Forrest, behind Forrest Griffin of course.

Indie Bands, WKD, Pineapples, Paté, Mushrooms and Smart Cars

I dislike most family films that have been judged 'good' by others. I'm an idealist, but I like my ethos to be taken seriously, instead of 'love and friendship is all you need! YAAAAAAAAY!'

Honestly: I can't say I like TF2. It annoys me, I find it dull, and generally I have bad experiences with other players. There's no surprise I never get good when I get hounded off after dying once (or kicked at one point). Most of my 'play' time has been on the tutorial, waiting for a friend to get on, and people asking to trade those stupid bloody hat things. It was better playing MW2 multiplayer when I had barely played a console FPS (or any FPS at that point) with people who had grown up on them and actually had played on 360 before. And why all those fucking hats?
Oh, and HL2. Something didn't click with me. The same things it gets praised for seem to be just paraphrases of other game criticisms. I keep thinking I'll give it a chance, then I feel bored after about 10 minutes.

Mass Effect 2 & 3, Dragon Age 2. I feel like people who like them didn't know what was good about ME1 and Origins.

Though I have always thought that Valves games are enjoyable and very well made, I've always felt that the engine was a little clunky, and that the graphics and character movements were a little...inorganic.

This thread is going to end well, I can tell, call it an ability of mine.

Oxygen is overrated. It's so mainstream, especially when there are other, better deserving gases out there.

Helium makes you sound like a cartoon, you can't tell me that doesn't make it better than oxygen right away.

Helium is running out and I hate you for wasting it like that.

It's needed, FOR SCIENCE!

If science was so great, it would have found a way to make more helium.

You can't argue with logic like that, I dare you to try.

Well we could fuse hydrogen. That's a pretty good option. Apart from the act of fusion is impossible for us at present time and would likely leave a very large hole in the planet.

Stuff I hate that everyone else likes?
Shadow of the Colossus. It's boring and empty and my experience of it did not enthrall me, it is the only time I have ever returned a game.

I despise indie bands. They all sounds the same and I'd like to see science prove it at some point as it did with pop music.

In fact I hate all of those things. Especially WKD. And people who talk about how they drank a bottle of vodka when they mean WKD. They need real vodka then they might become humans.

Garfield. FUCK YOU, orange cat. You're a cancer of the comics pages, and we will sadly never be rid of you.

I think chocolate tastes like the devil.

Also, top-down loot based RPGs like Diablo and Torchlight (and by extension many MMOs) have the most boring gameplay imaginable.

I hate hating things on the internet. Its just, so, violent. Seriously. Liking things on the internet too. Basically having an opinion on the internet. So many people seem to love this nowadays, but I personally hate it. I have opinions, but I don't constantly feel the need to either shove what I do like down people's throats 24/7 and DEMAND that they love it as much as I do or suffer the consequences. Nor do I like personally insulting or threatening anyone on the internet because they either like something I do not, or hate something that I do like. Despite the many people who often find that this is the ONLY thing they can do on the internet.

I know, totally weird, right?

Also, in spirit of OT: Nutella. I just can't stand that stuff, and whenever my wife teases me by eating a huge spoonful of it, I reach for the peanut butter for revenge :)

This one I've gotten so much flack for: Community. I simply can't stand it. They keep throwing in your face "We're quirky! We're zany!" and it's so over the top it's unwatchable in my opinion. The characters are very unlikable (two of the girls come off as complete self entitled bitches, the two main guys are over the top nerds, the other guy is an utter douchebag, the Asian guy is over zealous regarding his job(s) to compensate for his lack of self confidence, and so forth).

Why do other people like it? Dunno. Why do adult males love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic so much? Who knows...

I like stuff, but I don't like people who don't like stuff as much as I do.

Phew, so glad to get that off my chest.

Could we please have more "Feel like complaining? What is it that you don't like?" - threads, pretty please?

Dude, we can totally do fusion, I take it you haven't heard of JET.

and I don't see many holes in the planet. Doing it efficiently enough for worthwhile power generation, that's the hard part.

OT: As for what I hate that everyone likes, Harry Potter. And ignoring a discussion as to why I don't like it, my biggest problem is fans on the internet always using it as a comparison to Twilight. Yeah, ok, it's not quite as bad, but it's still not great, if you're going to act all superior to people, at least pick something that isn't in the same badly written ballpark.

Oh kick ass. Now we just need to harvest energy from it on a larger scale.

I also don't get harry potter.

MLP
Furries
The Avengers
Twilight

Take your pick :P

Get your torches and pitchforks ready, because I say Shadow of the Colossus.

The horse controls like absolute shit, the camera is abysmal, and the game suffers from pop-up a lot more than is acceptable out of a 2005 game. The colossi battles were great, and it gives credence to the "games as art" argument. But, I just didn't like it as much as everyone else says I should have.

DoPo:
Olives. I don't really like the taste, I'm ot eve sure what is it - it's too....salty and bitter at the same time.

Fuck your opinion, olives are awesome. They're not bitter at all, and there's no such thing as too salty.

omega 616:
Also liquorice. That stuff is disgusting. >.<

MHR:
MLP

Not everyone who's in the real world likes it, but everyone on the internet apparently does. While the show is indeed original and well-animated, it's terribly dull and puts a lot of focus on sharing and kindness which is far from educational or relevant for the brony fanbase or anyone who isn't little girls.

People who like MLP like the bright colors and dont realize there are probably better things to like, like anime catgirls.

HammerIntoAnvil:
I despise Scott Pilgrim.

solemnwar:
Oh, I know: WoW. I had a free trial for a week after getting the Diablo I and II collectors box thingy, and I tried it out. I did not like it.

I agree with all of the above.

(goes back to playing WoW)

Wolf In A Bear Suit:
Pancakes and French toast. I personally feel its the taste of eeeeeeeevil

Relevant:

And I refuse to contribute to the devaluation of the word 'hate' for the purposes of this thread. It's thrown around too much, it has no meaning anymore. A mild passing dislike for something is described as vitriolic hatred nowadays. It's ridiculous.

Watching sports. Here in the U.S. it's "American" football and baseball while in other places it mostly seems to be soccer (what the natives would call "real" football). At work *everyone* is always blathering on constantly about the previous night's game and seem to have nothing else to talk about.
I watch a game and I am as uninterested in what's going on as I am in watching a foot fetish video (not that there's anything wrong with foot fetishes or football if that's your thing).

Sharing is socialism

Anime catgirls > MLP = opinion.

Personal tastes, my friend. Personal tastes.

OT: I seem to be the only one around here who hates hot chocolate. Granted, I'm all for eating any other form of the mighty cocoa bean, but hot chocolate, as in the beverage, is undrinkable for me. Perhaps it's less the fact that it's chocolate and more the fact that I can't physically swallow any drink that isn't cold.

...or maybe I'm just weird.

Ironically I really do hate X.

I thought this was meant to be a satire. I guess I was wrong, or everyone else was.

Napoleon Dynamite. Fuck that movie. I don't get why people think it's so funny, it's just stupid.

mangas... i just dont get it! im sorry i know its a diffrent culture and all but everytime ive ever tried reading manga i felt like i was missing something! the only thing i managed to follow (kind of) was naruto thanks to my cousin and the anime the rest? i just feel like someone is messing with me... some japanease guy writing this and saying hmm i wonder if hell finaly give up on trying to understand this...

also i think gravity is overrated and rather pointless i mean sure it keeps us from flying into space but i WANNA go to space! its fucking space! its, by definition, awsome!

"Shove down throats". This is ironic, because so far the most awkward posts have been the ones railing against the idea of the thread. Everyone who is just complying with what the thread is supposed to do is having a good laugh.

The Godfather and Apocalypse Now both just had bland, uninteresting characters. I just couldn't care about them, so why would I care about the story at all? And it's not like they're exciting or anything like that. Now, to be fair, I didn't finish The Godfather, but the first hour gave me a really poor impression of it. Those are really the only well-received movies I didn't like.

And of course, in games, Chrono Trigger. About the same criticisms as The Godfather and Apocalypse Now. Like The Godfather, I didn't finish it, but if a game gets exhausting at around halfway through the main story when I'm attempting to speed through it, there's an issue.

I hate Cinnamon Flavored gum, I love Cinnamon, but I could never understand why the gum tastes like nothing but burning. Same goes with Flaming Hot Cheetos. This might just be a local thing but everyone here love Flaming Hot Cheetos.

Also, I know this might not be exactly related to the topic, but I hate when people tell stories about how B.A. they were this one time in a video game *more often than not CoD* talking about stuff like "WELL ONE TIME I NADED THIS GUY FROM ACROSS THE MAP". Although I might only feel like everyone likes this because everyone I work with are really, REALLY into CoD.
