What's the worst game you ever bought? I would say mine would be Thrillville

Such a terrible game, I warn you to never get this game. So what are your duders?

Ocarina of Time.

#3 Posted by falserelic (5444 posts) -

The worst game I've played this Gen is The Cursed Crusade. Fuck that game and the developers for making that shit.

One

Run Like Hell

Killzone 3 (wasn't the worst, but I wasted $60 on that game.)

Probably Final Fantasy XIII. Pre-ordered and got a guide with it, too. One of the biggest regrets I've had in gaming since the NES era.

I like seeing these threads pop up just so I can mention Record of Agarest War Zero yet again. Obscurity prevents it from getting the hate it deserves.

Brutal Legend. It was an impulse buy while waiting in line on release day for Uncharted 2. I guess that's why Cabela's always comes out on the same day as Halo.

What was your justification for that purchase?

Hard to say.

Recently, I was in gamestop and saw a game from my past, Hunter:The Reckoning, for a buck. Remembered having a fun time with it back in the day, so I picked it up. Well, past me was stupid. The game is pretty much crap.

So, yeah. That is the worst game I've bought recently, anyway.

Conflict: Denied Ops, all it had to be was a update of the previous games, we got a horrible FPS instead. That's the last time I buy on release day on a whim.

Fez. I regret buying that game and hate it so much.

That game was fucking horrible.

edit: also, does linking game names just straight up not work and only add an extension url onto the end of the word for anyone else?

#24 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

@LordAndrew: Pretty much the same as my justification for buying the ofull game: it was 5 bucks.

It was also developed by HB Studios who are local, so I figured it was worth owning for that.

And christ, have you seen my game collection!?!?

I remember buying Brutal Legend it was just terrible. Maybe it was because I wasn't into the heavy metal vibe. But still I found the game to be dull. Hell I didn't even finish playing the game.

I dunno I once bought both 50 Cent Bulletproof and Shadow the Hedgehog. ON THE SAME DAY.

Duke Nukem Forever. A purchase driven by nostalgia, curiosity, and a desire to own a piece of gaming history.

I'm torn between Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Phantasy Star Universe. I didn't think there could be a game that I enjoyed less than Bastion, but, hey, Amalur was there to surprise me.

@Canteu: Happens to me from time to time. I found out it's less likely to happen if you select the word(s) you want to link from left to right, not right to left. Maybe it's just a crazy coincidence, though.

Fightbox for the PS2, they were handing those out for free with every purchase of £15 or more when I got it.

When I was a young lad, I wasted my birthday money on a copy of Super Aquatic Games Staring the Aquabats on SNES. That shouldn't have happened. My younger self would have had more fun if he had burned the money.

I only went back and finished it when PSN was down for a month. Without being able to play any of my other games online I had the time to play that crap since all my other single player games were completed around the time that I got them.

#39 Posted by johncallahan (570 posts) -

I'm sure as a kid I bought some pretty bad SNES/Genesis games. The absolute worst one I can actually remember though is Dragon Ball Z: Sagas. I've played worse, but that is the worst I actually paid a large sum of money for.

Well, then what was the least good out of the games you've bought...?

Anyway, I can't really think of what would be the worst exactly; but Beyond Good and Evil is the first thing that springs to mind as a game I bought and disliked.

Edit: Bad Company 2 - I'm not a multiplayer person, so I only played through the campaign. Eugh.

I actually do not know. I can't think of any downright bad games I've paid for at the moment. I'm certain that I have paid for bad games before but their names slip my mind.

Besides, I generally do research on games before buying them and have been for a long time.

#48 Posted by Soap (3594 posts) -

Current generation it was probably Alpha Protocol and Kingdoms of Amalur : Reckoning.

Alpha Protocol felt like a buggy unfinished and downright ugly mess while in KOA:R I was almost convinced I had jumped into some weird console MMO that no one else was playing.
