Andrew's Top Ten Games I Wish I Never Bought

You know, for as expensive as games can be, I've sure made some terrible spending decisions in my time. The following is a list of games I just shouldn't have bought. I'll give you a reason for each, be it that I never played it, or it just plain sucked. God, I hope some of these are still going for something on Ebay...
 
Note that this is a list of physical copies; were I to include Steam purchases, I'd probably have to make it a top 30. But those games were either cheap or included in a bundle, so there wasn't nearly as much of a monetary loss and no remorse to be felt.

Hmm... the fact that lists don't use any text formatting makes some of the longer explanations less than ideal for reading. Sorry about that.

Good list, even if I disagree with a few submissions, for example Black and White 2 and Left 4 Dead 2. I owned Black and White 2, and while I found it a difficult game I had a lot of fun with it(Not so much with the expansion) As for L4D2, I know what you're saying about not wanting to play with strangers, but you should still definitely play it sometime. I have that trouble sometimes too, but when I do I normally just start playing online and finding random people in the games I join, then I add them. Either way, I think you should try both of them again

I don't know why I never got into Black and White 2. I'm an arsehole for wasting money on it and not playing it, and I really did like the first game. I think it was just another one of those situations where there were a bunch of really good games coming out and Black and White 2 fell to a low priority, ultimately to be forgotten.  But like I said, the game kind of lost all of its charm for me. I guess it couldn't have been worse than the game-crippling bugs in the first one preventing you from finishing the game without a patch.
 
I've picked up Left 4 Dead 2 a couple of times since, and I still like the single-player and uniqueness of each level, but miss the ability to play as infected in single player. That means I usually stick to the original game, even if I've played all of the official maps to death.
 
Considering right now I'm on a bender of playing older games for some reason (currently playing Splinter Cell: Double Agent, before that played Hitman: Blood Money and a little Hitman 2), I just might make a loop back through to Black and White 2. I'm trying to play a lot of these games I bought on a whim instead of buying new games (as money is super tight).

I never played the first game, I heard it was amazing and always wanted to try it. And yes, it's definitely much more polished in my opinion :) just give it a try sometime. And glad to hear :) I definitely liked L4D's main character's better than L4D2 but L4D2 was a very solid game nonetheless and I enjoy playing both. Good choice on Hitman btw :)

Ok, wait, so you just have Enclave but you never played it?  Just left it in the box?  I need to travel back in time and kick your young ass, that game is great!

@starrjack1: Sadly, I don't even have the box. It might actually be worth selling if I did :P
