5 Games We Thought We Would Actually Hate

Published

 on

Risking to play a video game that you are sure you will not be pleased with, is like waiting in line for a nuclear meltdown. Your sensitive ears will have to bear with the background music, sound effects, and/or dialogue. Your gazing eyes will see the graphics and when you touch the controllers, for that moment, you exist in the gameplay. This is a list of 5 games we thought we would actually hate. 

5. Spelunky (2008):

Try to make it through any level of this award-winning rogue-like platformer game. A game that you can ignore, may turn out to be one of the greatest games of all time, combining a rogue-like platformer with a real-time, side-scrolling platformer elements. 

Hunt for treasure in a series of caves and grab as much treasure as possible. Save damsels, fight enemies, and use your wits and reflexes to dodge traps.

4. Candy Land Adventure (1996):

Candy Land Adventure (1996) was released on Windows and is still playable to this day. What some gamers did not want, was for the video game to (in any way, shape, or form) ruin the classic board game (first published in 1949). The characters bring back memories (like Jolly, Lolipop, Captain Cookie, Princess Lolly, Queen Frostine, Mr. Mint, Lord Licorice, King Kandy, and more. 

3. Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee (2001):

Being only the third Oddworld game made by Oddworld Inhabitants, you play as Munch (a hero of the Oddest Oddysee). Putting a long story short, Munch finds out his race is hunted into extinction and has to rescue fellow test creatures. Use special powers, power-ups, and other abilities to put a hurting on the Vykkers.

2: The Shadow of Zorro:

Featuring 7 chapters 28 different locations, and 700 cutscenes, The Shadow of Zorro is a highly underrated 3D stealth-adventure game (for the PlayStation 2 and Windows). Set in California in the year 1822, you are involved in dagger-fighting, like the pulp fiction tales about the character Zorro (Don Diego). Zorro The Chrinicles is expected to be released this year, then you can have fun bringing justice back to the nineteenth-century Spanish California. Disarm your enemies with your useful whip and use your sword to defend yourself.

1. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask: 

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask (the action-adventure, puzzle-solving and RPG (role-playing game) involves Link, with the task to rescue Princess Zelda. Many video game brainiacs cherish the Zelda games, especially (the hardest Zelda game ever) The Legend of Zelda: Majorca’s Mask. Just try completing the ending of the video game without watching YouTube tutorials. 

Playing Majora’s Mask may make you feel old, but for the sake of nostalgia, it is worth it. Collect various masks, Pieces of Heart Bomber’s Notebook entries, and upgrades. One character you may despise throughout the entire game is Skull Kid, for stealing Link’s horse, Epona.
