For me it's probably Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Even though the gameplay with the Blades is fantastic and the soundtrack is top notch...

From the tasteless anime tropes, to the luck based mechanic to obtain new Blades, to the amount of trust grinding you have to do, to the absurd amount of cutscenes, to the fact that the narrative is 80% padding, to the narrative itself feeling like a bad light novel, to some areas being disappointingly lacking in content (like the World Tree), to the possibility that some Blades might be locked behind DLC...

I'm literally a stone's throw away from the final boss and I have lost all motivation to finish the game. I've even considered the possibility that Xenoblade Chronicles X is a better game than it because although X has a putrid soundtrack and just as putrid enemy placement, it at least understood that the gameplay is why the original game was so great to begin with.

Every final fantasy game ever made because you can't always move more than a few steps before going into a random battle except of course i'm aware than the online games and XV changed this, other than that i like everything else

Doki Doki Literature Club - the girls are cute (at least in the beginning) and I feel really sorry for them, but it's just way too scary for me. I'm still scared of the dark because of this VN, and I played it almost 4 months ago.

Katawa Shoujo - My feelings for this VN are kinda similar to my feelings for DDLC in that I think the characters are really cute, but I dislike the atmosphere of the game - though in Katawa Shoujo's case it's because of sadness rather than fear.

Milon's Secret Castle, Metal Gear Solid (Nintendo Entertainment System) and Jak and Daxter 2 hero mode were games that I equally enjoy and detest the difficulty, not hate. Though I enjoy challenges and difficulty that helps the player to improve and improvise their actions, there were moments I felt confused on what actions to do next.

Overwatch. I sorta want to like it since I'm decent at it but started to lose interest in it when the game became shield/stun/dive fest.

Monster Hunter. The excitement when taking down those beasts and despair when those "loot boxes" don't give what you need.

The Ghosts 'n' Goblins franchise. I relish the challenge, but it is a challenge, and the fact that you have to beat the games twice to see the 'real' ending, in most cases, is frustrating.

Sonic Heroes. The game is quite fun with it's gameplay and the music is good. My issue is that the 4 stories in the game seem too similar for me.

I guess i could say Bloodborne. I recently managed to complete it. It was nicely challenging, but some parts were outrageous. All in all, i'm glad i played but i personally don't want to it again. Once is enough.

Yes and that game was Shinobi. I like its theme, but I kept losing when my ninja character fell in water, can't ninjas swim?

Fire Emblem Conquest

Probably my favorite entry into the series (Only played 5 out of however many have been published), but the RNG system is broken and designed to make you pay for DLC content to unlock grinding which I am against. Often times, you would have a single unit get crushed because they either missed an attack they should have hit or hit an attack they should have missed, which would usually send them to an early grave for no reason other than bad luck. I love the characters, and I loved the atmosphere. The level design was brilliantly dark (fitting for Nohr) to vibrantly rustic (fitting for Hoshido). However, it seems they cared more about making the levels aesthetically pleasing than they cared for making them make sense, and often times the conquest game would put your characters in a wide open space where your only defense was your stats. Late game skills were just made to be broken and forced reliance on speedrunning a level (which increases player awareness on how broken the RNG system was), and the final boss is literally impossible to kill outside of a rescue staff rush. Which was a plan that took me 2 days to figure out (to the point where I almost gave up before I had the idea).

The charm of combat was related to how closely your healers had to be to remain effective, which put further emphasis on planning tight formations a few turns in advance. Your characters were glass cannons, powerful, quick, and very agile (being able to move up to 10 spaces for some of the best units) but subject to the crippling effect of many, many status down effects which added to the suspense (and rage when the RNG took a turn for the worse). The game was terribly time consuming and artificially difficult, giving many hours worth of rage that I could only get through because of how relatable the characters were. Not a single one on the side of Nohr were the "perfect, noble human beings" fighting against the evil "Nohrian menace". They were all perfectly flawed characters fighting for a side that oppressed them even more so than the regime aggressed against the Hoshidans. All characters who, for better or worse, joined the protagonist in support of the hope that he/she could one day change the regime from the inside.

Good story, amazing characters, and beautiful soundtrack is what pulls me in. The combat system, while fun at times, pushes me away when its shallowness exposes itself. Overall a great game.

Resident Evil Archives and Resident Evil 4. I suck at shooters, Archives' fixed camera angles are a bitch, and the games are intimidating. But they're still my babies.
