IDK if this counts. I'm not very good at description. 

What are your guilty pleasures in gaming? Like, is there a particular game you'd never ever let anyone see you play?Do you own a critically panned game? 

(I see you, with your copy of Dead Or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. And I know you watch all the softcore gravure girl videos in Yakuza. And you, you with the beard, I know you still own a copy of Superman 64)

Yes I happen to own a Gamecube copy of Catwoman. Game is crap but its fun to kick people into dumpsters and whip them til they get the Yellow Aura of Scaredy Cat and jump into said dumpster/elevator shaft. Plus you also get Jennifer Hale as Halle Berry as Catwoman. And the infamous idle animation.

My family had too many licensed Gamecube games to count. My little sister bought most of them. Battle for Bikini Bottom was good, others not so much. Shrek, Chicken Little, and Fairly OddParents to name a few.

What with online platforms broadcasting what you play to all your friends, it's hard to keep secrets nowadays. I will admit that I payed full price for Duke Nukem Forever and Evolve. DNF was... ehh. I'm not jumping on the hate bandwagon, but I wouldn't ever play it again. Evolve's base game was really good, but the publishers ruined it by making everything DLC. They desperately made it F2P to keep it afloat, but it didn't work.

And of course, for the people I know IRL, the fact that I played ANY visual novel to completion, let alone one about disabled women, is a secret I am taking to the grave.

Style Savvy, Love Nikki, Spore (more so for the creature creation community than the game itself), and Neptunia are the big ones. Strangely, I don't feel any shame about [email protected], Princess Maker or Atelier.

I must admit, I am a sucker for games with a bit of fanservice of female characters (not hentai or anything too erotic, more things along the line of KanColle or Azur Lane). Of all the weeb junk that I do play unashamedly, I never dare play these games in public or when there are other people nearby. This is why I don't play them that much.

Well, there are a few childhood games that I acknowledge aren't good, but I still like them anyway. DK64 and Glover come to mind. I can also enjoy fanservice, given that the game underneath it is actually worth playing.

Thing is, I don't feel guilty about any of that.

I bought J-Stars Victory Versus on sale solely to play as Bo-bobo. The only anime present in that game that I really like are Bo-bobo and JoJo. Everything else in it, I either don't care about or actively despise.

Keep in mind that the term "guilty pleasure" doesn't necessarily entail that you feel literal guilt. I've always seen it more as still being able to enjoy something despite having nothing to objectively praise about it.

OT: I have kind of a love/hate relationship with the No More Heroes games. The art style and writing give off a really sleazy, pretentious, and immature vibe, and the gameplay's mediocre, but I still really dig the "boss rush" format and the music. The second game especially's even more of a guilty pleasure since it has almost none of what I thought was objectively good about the first game, but I still enjoy my time with it to some extent.

Mediocre flash launch distance games are a guilty pleasure of mine I indulge in every couple years or so. I suppose there's something oddly satisfying to the very quick sense of progression and upgrading they give.

Sonic Adventure's the big "not actually a good game, but the childhood nostalgia makes me feel good while playing it" example for me.

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest for me since it was the first JRPG I ever beat and just really enjoy how simple it is. I never fully understood the hate for it.

Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn Of the New World is another. I love the monster collecting gimmick they added and I appreciate the lack of an overworld. Tales Of games have notorious shit overworlds and I'm glad it's menu based in the sequel. This is another game that I don't really understand the hate it got. I honestly like it more that the original TOS.

Disney Interactive Storybooks on PC. I freaking loved them. I still play them. I don't care lol. Nostalgia can't die

There needs to be more games where you can click the words and make funny sentences.

My guilty pleasure?

Now i don't wanna get anyone scared at this point, but i like games like DOOM or Hotline Miami, because i like hurting people that are my enemies, sometimes people would spare the life of their enemies, but i dont see it like that, they are your enemies for a reason

Sorry, but its just part of me 😛 (No, im not like this in real life)

I got that game too. Except I don't think Island Jack is wearing a barrel, but a sort of dress made from his own dreadlocks.

EL DIABLO CHIQUITA YAAAAAHHHHH

God what was I thinking playing this as a kid.

 

Catwoman is worth it for the awful graphics and Canadian accents alone. Also dat idle animation. Its actually one of the reasons im glad im not straight because id not want to be turned on. Graphics wise the animation does look good for 2004

 

 

I'm just laughing its Jennifer Hale and Halle Berry as Catwoman. Like they're using both to voice her. Weirdest shit ever (like you can tell its Halle in level select,  Jen in cutscenes)

Final Fantasy X-2 is such a mixed bag. You got dumb writing and annoying characters that try to bring humor to a setting that severely lacked it in the first installment (and you'd think with FFX's awkward voice acting and presentation that it would be better suited to campy fun than a dramatic storyline), and unfortunately it ends up kinda dumping on it instead. Really did feel embarrassed for the game at times. On the other hand, you got a combat system that's actually a good bit of fun and managed to suck me in pretty well, while also being completely different from the previous game in a way that made the experience still feel fresh despite the recycled world and enemies. Plus there was a lot of replay value and extras to look for, both in individual chapters (thanks in no small part to the airship being available from the beginning this time) and on subsequent New Game+ runs. Can't say I'm too torn up about never getting 100% completion, but still, time well spent if you ask me.

Castlevania 64 was kind of a bag of dicks, but it was my bag of dicks, and it knew how to set up an atmosphere I loved running around in.

Also, what I played of Sakura Dungeon was actually kind of fun. Straightforward dungeon crawler with turn-based RPG battles and monster girls, I saw no downside there.

Those Kitty Powers dating games. The Bees McBees ones.

 

They're exceedingly stupid (the nerd characters talk in a way that makes The Big Bang Theory seem realistic, for one), but they seem to revel in their own stupidity and they're kinda fun as a casual timewaster.
