For me it was Arkham Asylum. I thought I was gonna get at least a cheap batarang that I could at least take off the pedestal but sadly that was not the case. After that I never got a collectors edition again.

Half-Life 2. Cheap, flimsy box. Disappointing upgrade to the original Half-Life. Cheap t-shirt. Woohoo. I've bought a lot of collector's editions, but that was by far the worst.

I was going to say Street Fighter IV, then I remembered Dead Rising 2 and then I realised the anwser to every single worst themed topic: Capcom.

LPB2 and MK. Bookends... I thought it was a cool idea...

#5 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10475 posts) -

I think the only Collector's Edition of a game I own is Splinter Cell Double Agent, which was pretty lame, but I also got it for $40 or something, so I didn't pay too much for it (I believe it was actually less than the regular edition at the time).

None. Cuz I has never bought one.  Cuz I is not the dumb.

Yep, Dead Rising 2. Heres your ...pen? Yesssssss.

Pretty much all of them have not been worth the extra cash. Of the half-dozen or so collector's editions I've picked up over the years the only thing I've gotten any use out of at all is the duffel bag that came with GTA4. I swore off getting collector's editions after the disappointing Dead Space 2 package. I have learned my lesson.

Fable 2. Some of the games didn't have the DLC codes in the package so Microsoft had a setup a website for people to request their DLC code. They didn't have any way of authenticating who had bought the collectors edition so they gave codes to anyone who asked for one. On top of that, a couple weeks before launch, they dropped a bunch of the extras that were going to be in the collectors edition box.

Arkham Asylum. They changed the Batarang from metal to plastic without informing the people. (You can still dig up pictures of the original kit.) On top of that, they then changed it again from a clean plastic batarang to one that's all scratched up.

Halo 3.

But I've only every bought that and fuckin loved it.

#13 Edited by RagnarokRed (90 posts) -

Anytime it's just a tin case an artbook, and a lazy, less-than-30 minute dev commentary disc. It feels so damn bare-minimum. Maybe I just like useless swag like my sackboy and fallout boy and my septum gold coin :\

#14 Posted by BoG (5181 posts) -

Fallout 3: Survival Edition. The Pip-Boy 3000 was the cheapest piece of crap I've ever seen. I did like the lunchbox, though. Prince of Persia (2008) was also kind of lame. So lame, I don't even remember what it had in it. I was really bothered that the collector's box was cardboard.
#15 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

Fable 2. Holy crap, what was I thinking.

#16 Posted by Clonedzero (4091 posts) -

i dont buy collectors editions

#17 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5806 posts) -

I've never bought a collectors edition, with the exception of a few PSP games that came in bigger boxes and included a soundtrack.
 
Not a bad a deal, considering they cost the same as the regular edition.

#18 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

modern warfare 2. don't get my wrong the night vision are alright but i was expecting a better book. i was expecting something that was huge with information. i don't buy a lot of collectors editions because they are just cheap things.

#19 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7050 posts) -

Probably Modern Warfare 2 seeing as I was under the assumption that there wouldn't be so many game destroying glitches in that game and never thought I would stop playing 2 months after launch.

#20 Posted by Zippedbinders (983 posts) -

I guess God Of War 3, but that was still pretty cool. My favorite was New Vegas', I quite enjoyed all the extras. 

#21 Posted by Getz (2989 posts) -

Halo 2, I guess. The metal case seemed neat at the time, but now it just sticks out and makes me angry.

#22 Posted by MiniPato (2721 posts) -

You know, I want to say all of them. I bought the Hardened Edition of MW2. But really? An artbook for a Call of Duty game? I guess the download for CoD1 kind of made up for that. Dead Space 2 was kind of disappointing too because it doesn't come in a steelbook case or anything, just a cheap paper box. I do use the plasma cutter as a flashlight occasionally and play with it while I'm bored and just browsing around on the computer. The only good thing about the MGS4 one as the orange box with the cool box art.

#23 Posted by mlarrabee (2885 posts) -

Saints Row 2. I had no idea what it was when I picked it up shortly after launch for $20. Tossed it into the disc drive, completely hated it, put it on the top shelf and forgot I had it. But a new release collectors edition for 20 bucks isn't bad, even for a game you don't play. *grin*

#24 Posted by 234r2we232 (3181 posts) -

Battlefield: Bad Company. A fold-out poster and videos that were already available free on the EA website. Yeah.

Same. Glad I'm not the only one who was disgusted by this product. Don't remember the T-shirt but that sounds right. Huge cardboard insert with a cd case in the middle. OH BOY!

Collectors Eds are for suckers.  I would rather play more games!  Kidding, I get why people like them.  Just not for me.  Witcher 2 2nd tier deal was the closest I came to a collectors ed and it was awesome!  It was the version that didn't come with the weird bust thing.

#27 Posted by crusader8463 (14412 posts) -

Since the game died shortly after, I guess it would be Tabula Rasa. My most anger inducing experience would be the time I bought the one for the first Bioshock that came with that kick ass Big Daddy statue. Mine came broken, and the cunts would only replace broken ones for people in the god dam US. Every one else they just told to fuck off.  Still very pissed off at that.

Halo 3, if only because the disk is always rattling around in that damn case. Never stays on the spindle.

Final Fantasy 14 Online, wrong in  soo many ways...

This.

Fable 3's was a little better. Unfortunately, that didn't make up for the terrible game part.

#32 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

Halo 2. Was it worth the extra $10? No. Still, it wasn't that big of a loss. But man, that bonus DVD was like the most uninteresting and tragic video I've ever seen.
 
By the way, if anybody says GTAIV. they're getting beat up. There's your warning.

#33 Posted by Pickingwings (181 posts) -

Bought so many crappy collector's edition. Definitely the biggest one was God of War 3, followed by Street Fighter IV and Resistance 2.

#34 Edited by GorillaMoPena (1927 posts) -

That Madden collector's edition that came with a copy of NFL Head Coach.

I think NFL Head Coach is the only game I fell asleep playing. I think it also came with early 90s Madden playbooks, which you remember why they don't have those in the game anymore

It might be laying somewhere with those night vision goggles and that Best Buy Gears of War 2 tank.

#35 Posted by cinemandrew (711 posts) -

Fable II was pretty lame. Most of the reason I went for the Collector's Edition was for the Hobbe figurine, which they removed from the set shortly before release.

#36 Posted by Aus_azn (2224 posts) -

Forza Motorsport 3.
 
VIP released to everyone eventually, no SteelBook, and the only perks were a flashdrive (fashionable, I guess?) and a keychain (a common laser-engraved one).

$10? I payed five dollars. Shit I would've payed ten just for the steelbook.

#38 Posted by huntad (1930 posts) -

Hmm, I've bought very few collector's editions. The only ones I can remember were Bioshock 2 and LittleBigPlanet 2. Out of those, I guess the LittleBigPlanet 2 one was worse although I don't regret my decisions. The Bioshock 2 one came with a cool Vinyl Record, a music CD, a pretty thick artbook, and a couple of lithographs. I really like it, and I really liked the game too. Man, what a great set of stuff!

#39 Posted by Kraznor (1578 posts) -

Resident Evil 5 for me. Disappointing game on top of it all.

#40 Posted by Jeust (10477 posts) -

I only bought two, and I loved them. ^^

#41 Posted by Synthballs (2193 posts) -

I've only ever bought Fable III Collectors Edition.

It's great!

Well, in that sense, I think it served it's purpose well. Being one of the only good games on Xbox, it was always easy to find. I'm just talking about the multiplayer, though. That campaign was pretty freaking weak.
#44 Posted by ikaruga (191 posts) -

FFXII I was so excited to play it and the fucking camera control is backward and no option to change it. Never get past a few hours on that game.

#45 Edited by Gerhabio (1977 posts) -

GTAIV

I use the box to keep aspirins, ibuprofen, etc. The soundtrack was pretty cool, I guess, but definitely not worth the extra money.

I've been thinking of getting the collector's edition of Mass Effect 3 for the DLC that comes with it. You guys think it's worth it? You think they'll just release it later for download?

#46 Posted by Gargantuan (1881 posts) -

I've only bought one which was the Oblivion CE. It was okay.

Resident Evil 5 for me too. CE was a piece of shit. The game was okay though.
#48 Posted by Pezen (1562 posts) -

CoD: World At War, it came in a neat looking steel box and inside was a pocket flask that you actually couldn't open, making it completely useless.

#49 Posted by CounterShock (420 posts) -

Can't think of one, i'm usually smart enough to look at a package and think "All of this shit sucks and i'll never use it". Plus you save 20-40 dollars.

#50 Posted by Hilfemaster (100 posts) -

all of them
