Hey guys,

What is the XBLA or PSN download you most regret dropping the money on.

I know alot of people bought Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting and didn't like that, or maybe spent the 1200 pts on Braid or Limbo and just didn't 'get it'.

Everybody must have at least one XBLA or PSN title that they wish they could just get a refund for and move on with - what is yours?

For mine it would have to be N+... I don't know why I spent the $10 on it. I got the demo, and it was fun, but I probably played the demo for longer than I have played the full game!

Carcassonne probably tops the list for me, but I've made plenty of bad purchasing decisions in XBLA.

I'm torn between Limbo and Comic Jumper. Limbo was way too much for what is was, and Comic Jumper was funny, but lacked good gameplay.

I almost forgot, did anyone here actually purchase Fable 2 pub games?! Certainly that would top someones list!!!

I also must admit, for SOME reason, i bought the kameo deck for uno... No idea why, i never played it. I never even played kameo?

Comic Jumper. I think I made it to the second or third crappy railshooter part and the game glitched on me twice and I was more than happy to never play it again.

I really regret getting Castle Crashers and ilomilo. They aren't bad but I get no enjoyment at all from them.

Trials HD and 'Splosion man. 
 
Bought both at full price and got stuck fairly early on in both of them.

I'm with you on that one.  Such a horrible remake of a arcade classic.  They should have just ported the game over.

Comic Jumper. Everything about that game was great except for the parts where you actually had to play it.

Probably Defense Grid. I never get very far in that game. I think it was discounted when I bought it though.

At least some of the money went to charity. Pretty sure I'll never buy another "shape puzzle" game ever again. Never even liked Tetris.

NOTHING. I was wise.

However I got an advance code for Hydrophobia for free and that was bad.

Turtles in Time. I wanted it to be good so badly but it wasn't. Just didn't have the charm it once did.

This is why I love the arcade, the price is low enough to not regret buying something you dislike.

Although, I would say Go-Go-Break Steady. I really liked the trial, but then it got old fast... I don't regret it, just think im never going to play it again.

D&D Daggerdale. 
 
It has yet to be patched once and the only word from Atari seems to be "we're working on it." It's insane that this game was even allowed to be put on XBLA.

Serious Sam HD: TSE (controller + Serious Sam = serious disappointment) 
 
Space Invaders: Infinity Gene (the trial made it look awesome, and it was... for an hour or so) 
 
Bomberman Live (AWFUL online experience) 
 
Small Arms (...ugh)

Beyond Good and Evil HD.

After all the positive nostalgia I saw people throwing around, I decided to pick it up. I really wanted to like that game, but about an hour in I realized that I just did not give a fuck, and was never going to play it again.

I don't think the game is terrible, but man it just wasn't clicking with me.

I buy loads of XBLA games so perhaps some of the unplayed titles I have, I brought the whole sonic collection and barely played the first game, I have both monkey island games and haven't played them yet. I have countless others I have only loaded up once or have never played I am slowly but surely going through my collection though, trying to S-rank as many as I can, gotta get my Ms. Splosion Man on tomorrow though.

I dunno...Serious Sam TSE maybe? I got to the part where you bounce around the walls in a room filled with enemies. It's fairly early in the game and pretty much impossible, and I don't really care to try it again any time soon. Luckily I bought it on sale during the holidays.

I kind of hated playing a lot of Comic Jumper, but strangely I don't regret buying it at all. I'm not denying that it has some truly rotten gameplay and awful desgin choices, but it's one of the funniest games I've ever played and I got a certain amount of enjoyment out of it that made it barely worth it.

Just picked up Stacking on sale and I gotta say it's just not very fun. It's neat, it's funny, I dig the art style, but it's not fun.

Hexic 2 I guess. I spent countless hours playing the first one, but the second one just didn't do anything for me.

I did not spend a single penny on Streets of Rage 2 for PS3 but I felt ripped off like you wouldn't believe.

The people behind that piece of shit emulation should not have been allowed to make it. The emulation was better on a fucking Nokia N-Gage. 100% serious about that.

Metal Slug 3.  Or was it X?  I bought it for the multi-player, but regardless of the connection, the engine always has terrible network lag in co op.

I'll go with the opposite! I totally regret NOT buying Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 when I had the chance. Same with Smash TV and a few of the other un-buyable titles now.

Lara Croft and the Isometric Calamity.  1200 points and it's absolutely funless.  I got it in the summer of arcade buy two for 1200 and get 800 back so you could say it was only 800, still a titanic waste when compared to something amazing like 'Splosion Man.

The Scott Pilgrim game. For some reason I thought I would be interested in a brawler, but boy was I not. It's hard (for me), and there is no online co-op. Boo!

I don't regret it because I'm glad I played it for context, but I didn't find Limbo all that memorable. It was a neat idea, but just an ok overall experience.
