If you choose to focus on gaming communities full of dorks who are hyper-critical about every aspect of every game, sure.

As far as mainstream audiences go? It most definitely is not widely hated on. :rofl:

every single online gaming community. people in real life that play games that i talk to don't play games like this, they don't play single player games at all. single player games are radically less popular than multiplayer games after all.

I've read some criticisms in some online gaming communities. I've also read a lot of praise. Given that those who are enjoying the game are probably busier playing it than they are listing their grievances, I don't think reading some gaming forums (which seem largely overrun by extremely nitpicky individuals with very narrow tastes) really gives an accurate picture of what the overall reception for the game is. Also, frankly, I suspect there's some confirmation bias going on here when it comes to focusing on the negative things that are being said, and ignoring all the praise that's being heaped upon the game.

The question before me now... should I focus on finishing the story and then work on the rest of the side content, or spend more time on the side content and put off "finishing" the game? It sounds like there's still a good amount of motivation to keep playing even once the story is complete, so maybe I'll just do that so that I don't have to keep ducking end-game spoilers.

mmm you guys have way, way more narrow tastes in games than your average gamer posting to IGN.

Board is full of hot takes today! Some of y'all need a bit of chill, damn! We're talking about toys here. Not saying that as a pejorative, I love games as well, but ultimately they are just toys.
