I checked, but didn’t see any similar forums threads about this, so I thought I’d go ahead and create one (if this already exists, my bad).
The Prince of Persia reboot for the PS3/360 received almost universal hatred. However, I felt it was one of the most fun “parkour” games I’ve played. People knocked it for being too forgiving (if you fell, you were literally brought back to the last solid platform without any punishment). But I found that this allowed for more experimentation and led to a better play experience. People also hated the combat (or lack thereof), but I didn’t feel like this was a sequel to the previous generation’s PoP games, but closer to something something like Mirror’s Edge, which has a very specific path that you are trying to navigate and the entire game is built around completing the path. However, I grew overly frustrated at Mirror’s Edge, especially as I’m the kind of person who likes to experiment and ME had long loads after you died.
So what game did you love that everyone else seemed to hate?
