The whole god of war series. Really awesome game, graphics and story mode are really well designed. The thing that makes me hate it however are some of the puzzles. If you dont go online and cheat a little on some of the puzzles a person could get stuck for hours. The very first God of war however is impossible to beat Zeus at the end on the hardest setting.
Okay, it's slightly embarrassing, but I'll admit it anyway I prefer playing free browser games, because I'm a slightly broke student. So games such as Skyrama, Fortune Online and Battlestar Galactica Online tickle my fancy. Crap graphics? Probably. Free? Definitely
Used to play Tribalwar and Pirate galaxy, because both are free. Tribal is one of the most amazing strategy games, villages, conquering and such, and pirate is about spaceships pretty awesome graphics for such a game
the only game i can think of off the top of my head that i "hate to love" right now is Quake Live.
the only reason i "hate to love" it is because it is a MASSIVE time sink. (over the past year, i've logged close to 14 days of play time. that's days. as in, 24-hour periods. so, somewhere around 336 full hours in-game.)
other than that, i simply, flat out love the game. no hate whatsoever
