    Among the small handful of us that remain, I may as well ask what unpopular opinons you guys got for games that everyone else wouldn't have.

    My unpopular opinions:
    -Fucked up as Modern Warfare 2019 was in having a irl American war crime be used as a story reference for in-game Russian bad guys, I couldn't really get much or any outrage. I can't even see it as propaganda or rewriting history or whitewashing American war crimes so much as just "ripped from the headlines" writing for a game about following a script and shooting people.

    -The Last of Us 2 looks pretty meh but I could care less about Abby being some evil Satan figure. If anything, I just liked the memes people made with buttsex edits and strangling. Fanboys sound like full on spergs though in trying to defend what essentially just looks like a meh 3rd person shooter while people railing about some character born of mediocre face and body capture being a transgender lady just sound exceptional in going with that.

    -Out of the old FPS games from the 90's made on the Build engine, I find Duke Nukem 3D to be the weakest. Shadow Warrior was much better and Blood was top tier compared to them. Duke doesn't have as much charm as an old Asian man made of Asian kung fu stereotypes or some edgy gunslinger on a revenge quest against his former master.

    I can't say much since I never played it. My days with an N64 were divided between a red squirrel, a redneck bear, and a gorilla with a gun.

    I honestly actually prefer playing against bots in multiplayer than to ever touch online.
    At the very least, they don't blatantly cheating using mods, or act like salty elitists over how much more "experienced" at the game they are while displaying horrible sportsmanship every time they lose.
    And on a related note, esports players and the fighting game community are some of the most pathetic people you could ever witness, though I doubt that one's really an unpopular opinion.

    Some of my best memories of playing area shooter/multiplayer games have been with bots, particularity Star Wars Battlefront 2 (the original) and Perfect Dark. I never played Unreal Tournament but I've heard they had the best bots because how well they acted like top level players. That said the computer does cheat in some games particularly real time and turn based strategies games like civilization.

    I don't really like mobile gaming.

    Tiny screen with awkward touch controls your fingers can cover to do stuff. Then there's microtransactions and other smartphone BS.

    (OK maybe not that unpopular of a view...)
