I love discussing what I thought about certain aspects of the plot and how awesome some characters are, but yeah.

I think I'm just going to enjoy it silently.
I thought everybody hated ME now because of the awful ending? That pissed off quite a few of the local fans, if I remember correctly. I never got into it (only got an xbox recently) but I can see why you would hate it.

I hate that joke, it was never funny to begin with.

Not really but the others were. Big time. And the first game's battle system turned me off anyway.

Yeah, the subsequent games were a mess as far as presentation and story. The first was whimsical and fun, though.

Re: "I might play/like this game if hype/fanboyism didn't ruin it..."

Excessive hype and fanboyism often made me proud to play less popular games. The thing that made niche games appeal to me is that they don't have the fanboyism associated with them.

I agree with Swift_Knight on many points, regarding how many popular games are ruined by excessive hype and fanboyism. There is also a very good reason why I prefer old games over new games in general. I prefer bright and colourful games over anything dark and dull as well, despite how bright and colourful is simply not popular. When it comes to video games, the less hyped, the better.

This trope often sums up my thoughts: It's Popular, Now It Sucks - Television Tropes & Idioms
