For me that would be Metal Gear Solid 4, at first I was so engaged with it due to the story and how it wrapped up years of loose ends and plot points + the stealth gameplay.

Years went by and I started to see (many) holes within the game, Now I don´t like how MGS4 prioritize story to a fault, there´re long cutscene sequences with short gameplay segments (there´s a point in the game where you´re watching 1hs and 30m of cutscene non-stop followed by at most 10 minutes of gameplay that´s then interrupted by another minutes of cutscenes, it´s insane!!!! Doesn´t help that the game has over 9 hours of cutscenes.
The long sequence of cutscene also hindered the flow of the game a lot, there´re many examples of the above throught the whole run of the game.

What´s the game you liked at first but you started to like it less overtime?

I would have to say the GTA and Dragon Age series. Both are successful franchises and I enjoyed the first time I played those games. But, over time they just no longer appealed to my personal gameplay preferences.

Level-5's RPGs, in particular Rogue Galaxy and Fantasy Life. While charming, both are supremely grindey with multiple layers of grind on top.

I'll qualify these answers -- these are recent games where my initial impressions didn't equate to my final ones. None of these games are what I'd consider *bad*; it's just they didn't resonate with me the way they initially appeared.

Fallout 4 - I could write a book here.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - Ditto.
Dragon Quest XI - It's the most accessible DQ game, and the localization is top-tier, but the scenario is nowhere near the series' heights.
Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - Great intro, some absolutely fantastic puzzles and bosses marred by a TON of filler. For me, the story wasn't nearly as good as Wind Waker and Twilight Princess.

For games I liked years and years ago, yet I don't really enjoy now --

Xenogears - Make no mistake, it was a revolutionary title when it was released. But replaying it, I was amused by the amount of freshman-level philosopher gumbo. And RPG game mechanics have evolved so far since it was released.
