I had HW: Velocity X for the GCN. I found some fun out of it. The Hot Wheels Prototype sucked though.
On the mechanics, I haven't played the game(I wanted to since I do enjoy the Riders series but lol buying a Kinect), so I'll just take your word for it. But the controls are still a very important part of the gameplay. You can't have great gameplay if you have awful controls.

Put my Wii away when I got my Wii U the other day and found Super Mario Sunshine in the basement...I didn't play Arkham City that night. I can see why the fans nitpick this one though, the controls aren't as smooth as 64, the camera angle's super annoying, and the blue coins are dreadful to find. Nonetheless, as the first title in the Super Mario franchise I ever owned, I had a good time and played the heck out of it for 3 hours straight.
my "not that bad" game would be Golden Axe: Beast Rider. All the reviews I've seen give it 2's or 3's.
Now i only rented it for a week, and this was almost a year ago, but from what i remember it wasn't that awful.
Its kind of like a not-as-good God of war, Basically you run around and kill everything in site.
I don't pay attention to a games story that often, but in this you are trying to rescue the last titan for something.
I'd Definitely play it again if my rental store didn't remove it to make room for new games.

Kirby's Dreamland 3 is a lot better than people give it credit for. People unfavorably compare it to Superstar, but I find it to be the superior game. I love the textures in the graphics, the slower more relaxed pace and the weird attack combinations you can experiment with.
King of Fighters Maximum Impact 2 seems to get bashed on a lot too, mostly because it's a 3d (2.5d technically) game in a primarily 2d fighting franchise. But I honestly think it's pretty fun. It may not play the tightest, but it's a great hybrid between 2d fighter special moves and 3d fighter combos. I also really love the large number of unlockable outfits in the game. The maximum impact subseries has gotten a little more love since it was canned completely, but that praise mostly went to Maximum Impact Regulation A, which doesn't have all the extra features 2 does.

Watch me tumble stuff:
NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams. Pales in comparison to the original Nights, but for a game that was in development since the Dreamcast Era, it turned out much better than Duke Nukem Forever did.
Blinx: The Time Sweeper 1 & 2. Confusing controls, but fun as hell to play.

No, sorry, sorry. I was actually laughing as I typed that. But on a serious note, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I don't know about you guys, but all my friends who are elder scrolls fans didn't like it. I have no idea as to why. It was great. Massive, unending, entertaining.
I have claimed Alduin, the mighty dragon! He shall one day return to bring forth the end of time, and fulfill the prophecy of the world eater.
ZombiU. I don't know why everybody keeps saying it's too hard, it's an ACTUAL zombie survival game, unlike L4D2 which, while awesome, is more of a zombie shooter action game, where you can refill on ammo constantly, find weapons everywhere, and is just generally easier (until you fight tanks. Another story). ZombiU makes you search for a freaking kricket bat, while ammo is scarce, there;s like one assault rifle in the entire game, and food only heals about 1/8 of your health.
I have claimed Alucard (Hellsing), Sebastian (Kuroshitsuji), and Laguna Loire (Final Fantasy VIII).
Hellsing, Street Fighter, The Elder Scrolls, Dangan Ronpa, Bleach, Homestuck, Black Butler, and Puella Magi Madoka Magica fan.

This isn't really a game example, but the Bioshock Infinite box art. The fact that this is a "controversy" makes me laugh.
New Little King's Story(Not sure if it's widely hated, but not exactly kindest reception)
Metroid: Other M

The Donkey Kong Country GBA ports. Still troubled, but not to the extent I was led to believe. Would still rather play the SNES versions, though.
Also, I think a lot of "hardcore gamers" look at the Wii U as a gimmick system, the way they probably did the Wii and 3/DS when they came out.

Sorry, I take back what I said about not liking any of the characters. I did like some of the characters, just not most of them. THe dogs were pretty cool.

I just played Sonic and the Blacknight, and I'm going to admit that I liked it. It certainly wasn't revolutionary by any means, but I had fun playing it. Sometimes it's fun to just run around and jump, not every game is going to be an Adventure 1 and 2.
Also, Mysims. I will admit that it's an incredibly childish game, but that doesn't mean that it isn't a good game. It's a fun way to be creative, especially if you just like building and customizing things. Not every game has to be for hardcore gamers, some can indeed just be to relax and unwind.
^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.

If you didn't like it for those reasons, then you played it right. You're not supposed to like it.
Kirby Air Ride
I've heard so many people say that is a horrible game, but I don't know how that could be! It's one of my favorite games that I've ever had and my sister along with my childhood best friends love playing it. I wish this game had a bit more love. Am I wierd for liking this game?

And most of the people who think that the Adventure games are the best Sonic games ever are blinded by nostalgia, SA1 and SA2 did much more harm than good to the series.
