** While the game has always been LoveItOrHateIt in the ''Mother'' fandom, and people ''are'' excited since it means high hopes for ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', Nintendo's decision to release this game in America before ''Mother 3'' has gotten them quite a bit of flack from people who aren't fans of ''Beginnings'', and to a lesser extent, people wanting a VideoGameRemake compilation that updated ''Beginnings''' battle mechanics to that of later entries of the series. On the other hand, many people tell the other side of the base to be glad another ''[=EarthBound=]/MOTHER'' game is being released overseas, and that they thought the first game was always going to be localized first due to being already translated.

** Here comes ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow'', a ContinuityReboot, developed by [=MercurySteam=] (AKA, the same guys who made the LoveItOrHateIt ''VideoGame/CliveBarkersJericho'') with IGA not in sight. Patrick Stewart doesn't save this game from arguments over the art style, and the people who don't want a "[[VideoGame/GodOfWar Godofvania]]".

** Digital distribution vs. physical copies. Digital supporters enjoy not having to wait for a copy to arrive in the mail or drive to a brick-and-mortar store and not having to worry about copies selling out. Physical supporters point out that digital distro isn't the best option in countries where connections are unreliable and is outright unavailable in many countries; things get worse if {{DRM}} is involved, which is always the case for console and handheld platforms.

** The new rifle they brought in: The Retro Lancer has a better damage-modifier than the normal Lancer, but [[AwesomeButImpractical insted of the slow-moving]] [[ChainsawGood insta-kill saw]], it has a [[BayonetYa sprinting bayonet charge.]] Because of people's tendancy to spray with it, due to it's lack of accuracy, that's why some hate it.

* DynastyWarriorsOnline suffers from this.There are a few splits that pop up from time to time, such as if a weapon is overpowered. If you look through the forum history you will see legions of splits on one thing or another. One of the longer running problems is "musou", more specifically whether it's overpowered or fine. It's died off as new weapons and abilities popped up.

* In fact, the three big MOBA games in general. [[DefenseOfTheAncients DotA]], ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', and ''VideoGame/HeroesOfNewerth''. All three will argue that Icefrog sucks at balancing and Videogame/{{Dota 2}}'s UI is terrible and its art style is unimpressive, [=LoL=] is a casualized part-MMORPG that dumbed down the genre, and that nobody should care about [=HoN=] because it's the least popular of the three and S2 ruined [=DotA=]'s balance/are capitalist pigs. Basically, you can't like more than one of these.

** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' also fits this bill, although to a lesser extent than ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''. Some fans think it received more acclaim than it should have and only won Game of the Year because 2014 had a weak batch of games for it to compete with. The main criticism is that Creator/BioWare tried to incorporate the open world aspect of the popular ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Fallout]]'', detracting from the game's story and characters which are considered the series' strong point. Many of the side quests were just fetch quests and there were only five main quests, excluding the prologue and finale. People who didn't like ''Dragon Age II'' think it was a marked improvement over the previous game and a sign the series was bouncing back.

*** It became so bad, that this is one of the '''only''' reasons why most people become a ''hatedom'' Minecraft as a whole. Some former fans had even teamed up with famous hatebases to curb this.



* The ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' fanbase cannot agree on what name fits the KillEmAll route better. The more popular choice of name is the Genocide route, since this is exactly what the protagonist does; however, some of the fanbase feel the name is too much of a {{Spoiler}} or feel that it's using the strong term lightly, and call it the No Mercy route instead. Those who prefer the name "Genocide" argue back that the "No Mercy" name is too vague and fits other routes of the game better (namely, the ones where all the bosses are killed but not all the monsters, or ones where you kill everybody you encounter but [[spoiler:not to the point that enemies stop spawning altogether]]). Then there are the folks who TakeAThirdOption and call it some permutation of "[[MemeticMutation Having a bad time]]" after a memorable pair of lines from the run.
