One has a whole Metroid Prime collection, he used to think the series were horrible, but in the end, he started to be a huge fan of the Metroid series.
Eventually, he wants to make me sell him my Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt cartridge.
I played Pikmin some time after getting the GameCube, but I had a hard time with that game, and as a result, after 1 day, I never played that game again. I never even played its sequel.
What disturbs me even more though is that my sister bought Eternal Darkness and played it for a while. However, because its contents are very extreme, my sister stopped playing it. I never touched the game at all, considering my distrust with M rated games.
Super Mario Galaxy
But I didn't really think it was bad, I just thought Mario Party 8 would be a better choice but luckily my dad and brother bought this game instead of my option. I fell in love with Super Mario Galaxy after that.
My friend has it for wii and was begging me to try it. I thought i would've hated it since FPS isnt my thing, but it was actually pretty fun.
I had the same Pikmin problem. Got it, played one day and felt ripped off. It wasnt the time limit, it was just so... boring and slow.

I was disappointed when i didnt get Melee but i had a go and it was pretty fun. Of course, my friends were hooked and it quickly became un-fun when all they wanted to play was it.
