Okay guys, so in the last couple years I've felt completely disconnected with the overall reception of quite a few different games. Those games in particular are Mario Odyssey, Horizon Zero Dawn, Zelda BotW, Spider-man, and now AC Odyssey.

Here's my deal with all of these games. I feel like are all just bunch of copy and paste BS with uninspired designed. The only one of these games I think is decent is BotW, but I still think that game really hurt itself by having 150 shrines when it could of had like 8 decent dungeons.

Mario Odyssey is 800 moons of doing the most basic tasks that take virtually no platforming skills minus like 20 moons. Horizon Zero Dawn and Spider-man both had a ton of copy and paste content, Spider-man much worse than Horizon (I only played like 5 hours of Horizon before I gave up. I 100% spider-man).

I didn't actually play AC Odyssey, but I did play Origins. That game is an open world of the same 4 activities copy and pasted all around it. It's suppose to be an RPG, but its basically not because your level will always match the enemies in the area you are fighting, so you basically end up fighting the same enemies with the same amount of health, just in a different area. There's basically no variety in enemy or mission design. The story missions are basically the same as the side missions in terms of what you actually do as well. I heard Odyssey is basically like Origins, so I'm assuming all these complaints will be highly relevant.

So what's the deal? Do I just have bad taste? I don't understand how people like these incredibly repetitive games that push quantity way over quality.

Yeah, but some opinions are better than other. A person who can explain their reasoning behind their opinion carries much more weight than someone who can't.

I disagree, being good at writing or speaking does not make ones opinion matter more unless its about writing or speaking.

You're saying people who like those games have bad taste. Your words. That's an opinion, and a poor one at that. Just move on.

All this tells me is that you don't quite understand what an opinion is. Especially considering your reasoning behind how you would rank opinions. Someone else's opinion on something might not make sense to you, or you may totally disagree with them, but that doesn't mean their opinion is "worse," other than in your opinion. Other people might find your opinion worse. For instance, I find your opinion that "some opinions are better than other" to be pretty s***ty - but that's my opinion. Your opinion isn't factually worse... I just feel it is. See how that works?

Some of the most popular hobbies/past times/games /etc largely involve repetition. Hell life is a f*** load of repetition.

I mean I mostly agree with you but a lot of people wind down by doing something mindless in a pretty world.

Quantity over quality. That's the motto for most game developers these days.

Sadly, it seems most gamers agree as well.
With deeper knowledge and experience, everything becomes more shallow.

It's not like they have a different taste. It has to be either "same as mine" or "bad", doesn't it?
