The Sonic reboot this generation. I bought it used from Amazon for $3. That was too much money.

I have said this on every regret or game hat thread I've seen but leisure suit Larry box office bust quite possibly the most detestable game I ever played

Noby Noby Boy. I don't care that it was on sale for 5 dollars, it was still a waste of my money and time.

Final Fantasy XIII and Assassin's Creed Revelations but I'm willing to give those another chance...one day.

Pre ordered Brink in full months before its release. Worst decision ever.

I also share your pain. On the plus side, I had S-ranked that game in 2 days.

Brink, It seemed like someone walked into the studio halfway through development and was like, oh yeah game is out tomorrow by the way.

Also Final Fantasy XIII-2 - I have no idea why i bought this, especially since l didn't like Xlll.

Maybe you saw a barely better game in Xlll-2?

Modern Warfare 2.

I didn't like much of what i was hearing about the game prior to launch but i'm also not a dumbass you will join a Steam boycott group either. COD4 remains one of my favorite games of all time and i figured i'd judge the changes they were making in MW2 for myself. And judge i did and boy... what a worthless piece of shit that game is!

I bought LA Noire new, and I've hated myself for spending 60 dollars on that game ever since.

I think I already posted here but on reflection:

Everything on my 360 except for Tales of Vesperia, Bayonetta and Alan Wake, and I regret buying those games for 360 and not other platforms.

#312 Posted by Hawkerace (294 posts) -

Jeez, I don't know whats up but I like a lot of the games people have said.

My vote is Borderlands, rusefully linear and shallow gameplay grind fest with a "bazillion bazooper guns111!1" and awful characterization, and the ending what the fuck, the only good thing about the game supposedly was the loot, and the ending laughed at you for that. Buyers remorse forever and ever.

As a kid I got the LOTR: Fellowship game on GBA. It was atrocious.

Also bought a PSP soon after release :(

Dragon Age, tried about 4 times and couldnt get more the a few hours in.

And no, you couldn't do anything when you got stun-locked.

Any game bought in a Steam sale that is just sitting in my list. Unplayed.

Time Commando for PS1. That game would probably be terrible if I tried to play it today but can you really blame me for wanting to play a game called "Time Commando"?

#319 Edited by The_Hiro_Abides (1280 posts) -

Spider-Man 3. The forced quick time events, ugly graphics, and average gameplay was so disappointing to the fun I had with Spider-Man 2. I'm sure if I dug deep there are many other games in my pile of regret.

#320 Edited by DarthOrange (4091 posts) -

Skyrim. I played it for like maybe 2 hours. It looks like shit, plays like shit, and has made me warry of all videogames.

#322 Edited by WinterSnowblind (7595 posts) -

Simcity. Resisted the temptation until just before it was released, but I've always been a big fan and decided having to be online wouldn't really hamper my experience much and it'd probably be fun playing with some GiantBomb friends.

Then I watched the GB quick look and immediately regretted it. I'm usually much more careful with buying games, especially at full price, so I feel pretty stupid for being suckered in with this one. Lesson learned though.

LA Noire.

#324 Posted by Cheesebob (1285 posts) -

Spore

GTA IV

Celebrity Deathmatch, The Game

The third Harry Potter game, it was a gift from my mum and one of those gifts that was given because she found it and thought her children would like it. It was...alright. Luckily it somehow got corrupted an unplayable about half way through

One of the terminator games on original Xbox

Gangland

Impossible Creatures, to a degree. The Gameplay was very mediocre but the creating the creatures was sick!

#325 Edited by Winternet (8234 posts) -

GTA IV. But only because I didn't had a computer good enough to play it for about 2 years.

#326 Posted by MikeJFlick (452 posts) -

APB, full price game, it goes bankrupt(more like taking the money and running) before I even got to play it, that was me literally taking 50-60 dollars however much it was and just throwing that money into the fucking wind.

#327 Posted by LackingSaint (1978 posts) -

I guess I don't regret getting any games because if I didn't get them i'd never know I wouldn't enjoy them. But as far as games i've recently played and couldn't get into: Valkyria Chronicles.

Practically every MMO that had a box price. (except Guild Wars)

#329 Posted by JoeyRavn (5117 posts) -

Most recent purchase I regret buying: Age of Empires II HD Edition. An "HD" port of a 13-year-old game absolutely plagued with a myriad of bugs that make it unplayable. The devs basically tricked pre-purchasers into beta test the game for them, and the most of the "community" willingly accepts it.

Seriously, it's a fuckfest.

#330 Posted by TangoUp (327 posts) -

Easy.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron: What this game is, I don't even ...

Kingdoms of Amalur: Yawn-fest. And bad for my eyes because I constantly have to read the subtitles to understand the boring "All Ye Auld ..." dialects and the uneven volume.

Demon Souls: Depressing.

Modern Warfare 2:

And the biggest regret of all ...

GRAN TURISMO 5 (and buying GT5 Prologue and GT4 in expectation): Feeling of being conned doesn't even begin to describe my feelings for the title and Polyphony Digital in particular.

M thoughts exactly about MW2 whereas COD4 remains one of my favorites.

Superman 64, although that game completely changed the way I bought games. Since then I almost always checked reviews before making a purchase, although that doesn't help with...

Dragon Age II, a game that was utter trash, rushed development at its finest, and yet it got great reviews.

#333 Edited by Mocca_Bear (67 posts) -

Not video games but all of those d20 and White Wolf P&P RPG books that I never ended up using... So much money wasting away in boxes stored in the attic to never again see the light of day...

#334 Posted by mlarrabee (3206 posts) -

None. I like gaming, and even when a gaming experience doesn't measure up to another, it's still part of why video games are my persistent hobby.

Even games I never touched and gave away--if I play a game at all, I keep it--even those are important, because while they didn't become part of my own gaming history, they added to someone else's.

That's a bit old, but I remember regretting getting Demolition Man, for the SNES. Finished it in an afternoon. Not much to do thereafter.

#336 Posted by Vin (5 posts) -

Gran Turismo 3.

The very definition of grind. Fun for hardcore driving nuts, sure. But goddamn, the time spent in the Sunday leagues can just kill a person's will to live.

Record's been pretty spotless since then. Thank god for Quick Views and good old fashioned gut instinct.
