Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I started a new game 3 times and even bought Shivering Isles, and I still found myself quitting about 10 hours into the game each time. I was never satisfied with my character, the voiceovers were drab and repetitive, and the main story was boring. I even used popular PC mods and couldn't enjoy it.  Also, Bioshock. I thought the story was contrived. Most people who thought Bioshock had philosophical depth thought so because they have never read any of the material that Bioshock references (aka Ayn Rand).
Oblivion is neither about voice acting, nor story, and not so much your character, so you're focusing on the wrong parts. 
Oblivion is about the world and the motherfucking endless content and quests in it. so much to do, too much!!
A lot of content doesn't matter if the game is bad.

First few hours of L.A. Noire felt amazing, after that it was all down hill as the gameplay was the same all the way to the end(which was very half-assed in my eyes).

I didn't want to like LA Noire, I just straight-up didn't like it very much.  
I did want to like Alan Wake because I really liked the combat, but it had pissed away all my good will by the end.

Blazblue. I bought both versions of the game and put tons of hours into it, I just don't like it very much. The art, animation, music etc are amazing, but I just don't like the way any of the characters play. Littlebigplanet was also a pretty crushing disappointment.

I wanted to like Shadows of the Damned a lot more than I did.

Bastion. For all the hype surrounding that game, I can't see why it's so good.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3. I can't help but seeing them as generic modern military shooters.

Oh, and E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy. I really wanted to play that game, but it run like shit on my PC, despite exceeding all the recommended specs. The answer from the devs and the community was a "fuck you, your PC is shit". Wasted €20, never buying indie again.

Damn this list might be a bit long you'll probably wonder what games I actually like but here goes:

Bioshock, anything from Bethesda, anything from Bioware, Mario Kart, EVERYTHING that was on or originally from the N64, Grand Theft Auto 3 onwards, most racing games, all isometric-view strategy games like Starcraft and Warcraft, Halo series, Half-Life series, Team Fortress 2, Geometry Wars, Shenmue, Gears of War series, Left 4 Dead series, Lumines, World of Goo, Battlefield series, Modern Warfare series, Gish, Mirror's Edge, The Witcher and I think that's it.

I'd have to say Oblivion. Granted I played it after playing Fallout 3 which I loved and also I didn't play a tonne of it so I never got really far into the game, but there's something about the game mechanics and visuals just turned me off.

The Halo games. I absolutely loved Halo 2's superb multiplay, but I couldn't care less about the Halo universe (The Story, characters, etc).

Crysis 2 singleplayer I found cool but the multiplayer even though it seemed so cool in the trailer I find utterly broken. Just the fact that every single person has such a strong stealth ability makes TDM really stupid imo. Everyone runs around in cloak only and you get killed all the time from behind.
3D Dot Game Heroes. I have always fuckin loved Zelda when I was younger and I thought 3DDGH would be similar. But that game is trash. This gigantic sword feels super broken, you never have motivation to keep on playing because of non existing story, the dungeons have stupid level design, and overall the game is badly designed. For example I once had to return to a temple that I had already beaten just because I didn't take the item of that temple with me.

Final Fantasy XII, Oblivion and Dragon Age 2.

I was on the side that believed the changes to DA2 would mostly be for the good and result in a much better game. I'll freely admit I was wrong. DA3 needs to be a sequel to Origins.

Oblivion took much of what I loved about Morrowind, but simplified, dumbed it down or outright removed it. It was still a pretty enjoyable game, but not as great as it should have been. Hopefully Skyrim fixes the problems.

Thats cool if you didn't like it but reading Rand isn't and shouldn't be a prerequisite to being able to judge Bioshock as a game. Maybe it doesn't have the depth of a novel but for a videogame it definitely did.

Fable 2. I really liked the first but I just got bored playing the second.

Well, I wanted to like Alpha Protocol because it sounded like such a good idea.   I also really wanted to enjoy Crackdown 2 since I was such a huge fan of the original.   

The only one I can say I actively disliked in recent memory is The Darkness.  Several people suggested it to me and I had strong hopes for it, but I just hated practically every feature of the game.  I didn't like the characters, the story, the setting, the play-mechanics, the pacing, the U.I., etc...
Oh and Red Dead Redemption didn't thrill me either.  Parts of it were good, but I hated anything having to do with roping.  I also wasn't a fan of timed events in the game.  In the end, not enough of it was good enough to entice me to continue after 8 or 10 hours of play.  There were too many tasks I didn't want to do and that made the game boring while I wandered around looking for goals to achieve.

i had wanted to play oblivion ever since i had bought my 360. When i finally borrowed it 3 years ago, i was overjoyed. However, the game just proved to be clunky, i hated the UI with the passion although i guess the argument could be made that it fit inside the gameworld. I feel that i would've enjoyed oblivion a lot more if i had a pc (i have a 4 year old mac) so i wil never really know. I hope skyrim will be a big improvement.

Dragon Age: Origins and Dawn of War 2. I loved the first Dawn of War when it was a more traditional RTS and not the hero/squad focus they went with in the new one. Dragon Age was just..meh.

Dragon Age: Origins and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for me. 
Dragon Age: Origins I think I just need to try a new character or something, but I just can't get into the supporting cast as much as I want to. Though the look of the game throws me off. I just don't think the way armour looks in the game is appealing at all, and there's something about the way the characters look I'm not fond of. Yet, I'm a fan of both Baldur's Gate games. I don't know why Origins didn't sit well with me. Maybe it's because I was also playing it on the Xbox360 as I lack a suitable PC. 
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was a game I REALLY wanted to like. Morrowind was one of my favourite games from the previous console generation (having played it on the XBox and loved it) so I thought more of the same style of game would be great. While I liked the quests and the vast amounts of things to do, I couldn't get past the character design. I'm also going to take some of the blame on this one too, as I went in playing a character spec'd for unarmed combat, which as I now know does sweet crap all for killing dudes. Cut to me grinding out my axe and sword skills for the next 5 hours so I can actually be useful in combat.  
Surprisingly though, I really dug the look I achieved with my character despite giving him the biggest nose I possibly could. I think a key tip for making your character look good in that game is to exaggerate the facial features since normal looking people look weird in Oblivion. That's just me though.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, I managed to like it to some extent but ultimately it was a big disappointment to me. I still have some hope for the sequel...I guess.

Street Fighter 4 didn't help me to get into Street Fighter, so I guess that's another one.

Oblivion, played Dark Messiah before it, couldn't accept the fact that you cannot decide which direction you will hit with your sword, also too much choices regarding your character.
Farcry 2, obvious why here-
Basically all Halo games, don't get me wrong, I like playing with friends, but the campaigns are boring for me.
Crysis 2, Dragon Age 2, GTA 4,  LOTRO
To some degree Demon Souls, but I haven't given it a proper chance, I have actually only watched someone played it, thinking it was too random as a game or something.
Also, I hate Dead Rising 2, HATE IT.

Everythign Bethesda related (Including New Vegas)

Any Battlefield game after BF 2. The story of DICE just baffles me. They make BF2, the best large scale multiplayer game to date and then go make possibly the worst multiplayer  I have ever played in my life, Bad Company 2.

Oblivion and Fallout 3 are stand-outs for me. I don't think that they're bad games, I just can't get into them for whatever reason. I also got Darksiders recently and have found myself unable to enjoy it.

Far Cry 2. And Oblivion. I put a lot of time into both, and they both have some really awesome stuff, I mean stuff that fits me almost too well. But then they both have a lot of bullshit which just barely outweighs the awesome.

LA Noire, no doubt. Exceptional idea, terrible execution. One of the most boring games I've ever played. It looks good, it has an interesting story, but it's just soooo boring. 
I also never cared for Eternal Darkness and Viewtiful Joe on the Gamecube. I bought both of them for cheap because I heard they were so good but I never could get into either one.
