I personally regret purchasing an online pass for Uncharted 3, Skullgirls and Virtua Fighter 5: FS, Fable (XBX), and Super Street Fighter 2 HD (XBX) The reason why I regret buying those games were because the games were boring fast and on top of that was because I didn't think about it before buying it.
What PSN/XBL game do you regret buying?
I bought Crescent Pale Mist on PSN and I really didn't like it.
The list of XBLA games I regret buying would be a lot longer as I spent most of this generation buying for the 360. Fortunately I am finding it difficult to remember the names of the games. I do remember one was a top down shooter with zombies that I bought specifically because it had Jeremy from Pure Pwnage as a playable character but I'm not really into zombie games and it didn't play well either. I also regret purchasing Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix (if that is the right name). I bought it after getting all hyped from SF4 and I just didn't enjoy it.
Bomberman Live. Godawful netcode.
Serious Sam: TFE HD. (not sure why I bought that in the first place... I already had it on PC) The game itself is great, but Serious Sam just doesn't play right with a controller. I can only imagine how poorly Quake Arena Arcade plays.
I'm sure there's more, but I'm not thinking of any offhand. I try not to impulse buy XBLA stuff, since the crap flows pretty freely amongst the gold nuggets.
There's probably a few, but I'm having trouble coming up with them. A lot of times I buy a game that looks interesting to me and then never really play it, so it never gets to the remorse stage.
I've had several cases of buyer's remorse over XBLIGs though, and those only cost me a dollar.
Fat Princess. The servers were broken day 1 and when I finally played it, it was just kind of hectic and not that interesting. I think that's when I made my rule of, $15 and no demo = no buy. My niece got a ton of play time out of it though, so it wasn't all bad.
You know, I was going to say nothing until you mentioned SFIIT HD Remix, I got that on 360 and had been waiting for it for ages, that was the day I discovered just how awful the standard 360 D-pad is. I cannot get any specials out consistently. Dragon punch is just a waste of time on that pad. I think I played through it once with Ken on easy and never touched it again.
This game was awful, and when I got to this point in the game. I was ready to throw up my hands and walk away.
Yes I know it sounds like the name of a porno, but its a third person shooter set in a underwater setting. There's alot of things wrong with Deep Black. First off the story is nonsensical and boring. It doesn't go anywhere, and the cheesy voice acting makes matters worse. The shooting and control mechanics is straight up broken. Weapons lacks impact, enemies can absorb bullets, stiff animations and glitches, bland and bad level design, the works hell you can even take damage while your in COVER! Fuck this game and to ever who made it. What developers in there right mind releases a game that's barely functional.
Uhh, well since this is in the PS forum I'll try to think... Championship Sprint is probably my only tragedy on PSN. Uncontrollable. Also, Jesus Christ, Wikipedia.. sorting on The... :P
For XBLA I got both the Galaga Legions games, because I apparently have a brain disorder?
The only PSN game I truly regret buying was Noby Noby Boy. It just felt like a complete waste of time. Although there were some games that came pretty close to that same feeling for me (Outland, Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes & Penny Arcade Adventures), I managed to finish those with at least some fondness remaining for them.
Comic Jumper because I flat out didn't enjoy playing what I played of it (though, I'm a little torn because I like Twisted Pixel and do want to support them).
Rush'n Attack and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled because nostalgia got the better of me.
Small Arms because it was early on in XBLA and there wasn't that much to jump on. I found myself with, shall we say, some points that I didn't pay for (I tried paying for them, I really did, Microsoft refused my money). And I thought this quirky character-filled brawler thing might remind me of Super Smash Bros. It did not.
- Quantum Conundrum. I don't like it.
- Dead Rising 2: Off The Record. I hate this game.
- Sound Shapes, Papo & Yo & The Unfinished Swan. Only regret buying these games at full price since they've dropped to more then half the price.
- LittleBigPlanet Karting. Terrible.
- The Walking Dead Episode 3. Regret buying because I got all the episodes from my friend eventually.
Man there are quite a few that I didn't like
Ms. Splosion Man because it was not nearly as good as the original
From Dust, I just couldn't get into it
The Last Guy which I didn't find very entertaining
Quantum Conundrum was just meh to me.
Stacking I found really boring
that being said there are a ton of XBLA/PSN games that I have had a blast playing and they far outnumber the bad ones
Off the top of my head, Retro City Rampage and the season pass for Uncharted 3. For the first one I don't even like the Grand Theft Auto games so I have no idea why I thought buying that game was a good idea. As for Uncharted 3 though, I had a ton of fun playing the beta that the season pass just seemed like a no-brainer. But by the time I was done with the campaign, I felt kind of too burnt out on the game to play multiplayer. Even then, returning to it isn't as "friendly" as Uncharted 2; anybody who is a higher level than you (who is everyone that is still playing the multiplayer) grossly outguns and outperks you.
I forgot Comic Jumper on my list. I agree, it was a total chore to play through
