Man, hearing some people's stories about the Nemesis and Talon fights makes me jealous. I just completed them and well...my Nemesis was just some random uruk I'd never seen because I managed to go the entire game without dying except to caragors at the start, and I'd previously finished off any other nemeses I'd encountered. And one of my warchiefs instantly enraged upon seeing my caragor mount at the start of the Talon battle and obliterated 4/5 of them by himself. The entire ending sequence ended up being super anticlimactic for me.

As always, Master of Orion 3. I've never seen another sequel that so thoroughly betrayed everything that made the previous game great.
Dishonorable mention to ME3. That game was at least playable unlike the above.
I enjoy visual novels a great deal but I was super wary about this as soon as I saw it; even just looking at the cover artwork gave a strong impression that it was a throwaway game with cardboard trope characters and generic non-eroge fanservice designed to rope in desperate otaku for a quick buck. I'm actually sad that it sounds like I was right.
@wolfgame Kara no Shoujo is probably my favorite VN but I'd also add the disclaimer that anyone playing it should be prepared for some pretty extreme violence and dark themes. It's definitely not for everyone.
@tamriilin: Do you have a source for this? I felt something like this was going on the entire time I played and would love to see it confirmed as true. My guess had been that the AI's hand was fluid, filled with blank cards that could turn into any card in their deck as the situation demanded, though this would also make sense.
Was this the ultra low quality one that was made up of just 2 still frame photos of him and had only a single headbutt attack with a slightly powered up version as a super? If so, man, I am so sad I missed that. I have very fond memories of watching that thing's "AI" try and fail miserably to beat even the weakest characters in my game (and managing to beat even a few real characters when playing as him myself). Hopefully he shows up again.
I would probably say Strike Witches, though it was a long time ago when I was first getting into anime that I tried watching it. I've watched a ton since then and I doubt I would even bat an eye at that show's content today, especially since I've managed to sit through this season's Vividred Operation which is basically the exact same show.
Guess I'll go with Dakara Boku wa H ga Dekinai. Silly fanservice with a nonsense plot that manages to take itself way too seriously.
