Someone suggested that I should do a Skyrim LP (you know, that game there are already seven million LPs of on YouTube), and when I expressed my exasperation at how common that request was, and the fact that I didn't give a rat's ass about Skyrim, he answered that I was expected to like it because it's an RPG like Pokémon. Really? People like games just because they're a certain genre now? I'm expected to like Sonic 2006 because I grew up mostly with platformers? Same goes for series, there's no game that looks as much like OoT as Majora's Mask does, and you all know my opinion on THAT.
I'm really hoping no one actually decides which games they like based on those criteria... then again, that would explain the neverending CoD sequels and other best-selling rehashes.
