Unpopular gaming opinions

Angry Birds is one of the worst games.

Zynga have carbon copied Scrabble and become one of the most popular companies in the world!

FPS has no place on the tablet/mobile.

I don't think any of those are especially unpopular!

One that's shared amongst us but not the gaming community at large is that mobile is a legitimate gaming platform.

Nobody craves to sit down for a session of Angry Birds, but I don't think there's anything wrong with it per se - its success (along with a few others) helped legitimise iOS as a gaming platform, even if only for casual games. Good, simple concept, well executed. Don't play it, admittedly.

Clash of Clans, Game of War, etc however... I just don't see the attraction. Never played them, probably never will.

F2P is the future.

I did, too, when they were put out by Taito and called Puzzle Bobble.

I usually much prefer touch controls to a controller for some reason.

Oh, come now, they've ripped off more than just Puzzle Bobble. But in taking classic puzzle games and turning the F2P screws, I think they hit on an entirely different sort of appeal. I think in ... most... cases, other companies copy King far more closely than King copied their sources.

Badlands is massively overrated. Will that do?

I think I agree. The most simplistic of gameplay couched in a beautiful dusky world beneath the sun-swallowing canopy of the thickest woods where no man will ever tread. But, you know, simplistic gameplay nevertheless.

Super Hexagon is practically unplayable. And I really like most twitch-fests.

Crashlands is kind of boring and overrated.
Game of War blows.
Candy Crush is the game that ruined mobile gaming and started F2P (I do love Aphabetty Saga though)
Clash of Clans and that other one are overrated too.
