Worst Purchase

#1 Posted by OblivionGuy07 (161 posts) -

Well, since everyone is talking about all of the awesome games available on the 360... I was wondering if there were any games you purchased that you regretted. For me, it has to be Viking: battle for asgard.

Wrestlemania for the xbox. That game was very bad...

#12 Posted by Soulless (143 posts) -

Time Shift.  I knew it wasn't good, but I bought it just because I had extra money to spend.

Probably the Halo Legendary Edition, such a waste and I have no idea why I got it.

#16 Posted by DarkLegend (1387 posts) -

Really? I liked the deal.

#17 Posted by BeeDizz (30 posts) -

Earth Defense Force 2017. I still punch myself in the face occasionally for that one.

#18 Posted by Nibbz (203 posts) -

i just got the reg edition of Halo3. i feel bad for the ppl that got the Legendary edition. Its like $90 now and you can find it everywhere.

#19 Posted by OblivionGuy07 (161 posts) -

yeah the halo legendary edition was waaay too expensive, and I reserved it.

#20 Posted by 10MP (311 posts) -

i only regret one of my game purchases and that is assasins creed.

it was an ok game, but SOOOOOOOO repetitive
#22 Posted by Dr_Feelgood38 (1550 posts) -

I don't regret buying Assassins Creed because I got it for like $15. I thought it was a pretty good game too.

#23 Posted by SG_Mahonay (105 posts) -

Forza 2.  Simply because I was terrible at it.  Played it for a grand total of 2 weeks.  60 dollars could of bought me a whole lot of burgers.



Other than that, I don't really have any purchase regrets.  I follow games closely enough that I know what I'm getting into.
#24 Posted by Begemot (108 posts) -

Probably C&C3 or Hellgate.

#25 Posted by Pitta (182 posts) -

I don't regret... I Gamefly....

Cept Hellgate.... I'm a 'Founder'.... Sucks for me huh?

Lost Cities on XBLA.

Pocketbike Racer :(

#28 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (735 posts) -

The Legendary edition of Halo 3.....

Thankfully I was able to sell the helmet to my friend LOL!

#29 Posted by Dj (913 posts) -

Tetris Splash, it was an impulse buy. 

#30 Posted by Schadenfreude (206 posts) -

Lost Planet is my most regretted 360 purchase, followed by Guitar Hero 3. I can't seem to sell Lost Planet anywhere for a decent price. =/ For XBLA games, it'd have to be Bomberman Live! The online function did not work particularly well.

#31 Edited by Carlos (504 posts) -

Mario Galaxy... It was so boring I gave it away
oh you said 360 game uhmmm i still go with mario galaxy

#32 Posted by Conflict (76 posts) -

Star Trek Legacy, got it for the achievements and couldn't stay past the tutorial.

#33 Posted by Player1 (3850 posts) -

College Hoops 2k8 was an absolute joke. I could have mistaked it (minus good graphics) for a 2002 game. The gameplay was terrible and all the players look the same. The jerseys aren't even right.

#34 Posted by Thereisnoway (3 posts) -

I pay 20 bucks for Spider-man friend or foe, I traded it in for 22 bucks and I still regret the purchase because I actually finished it. Although if your the type that plays games for gamer score this is an easy 1000 points or at least an easy 925.

#35 Posted by Montauk (19 posts) -

I don't really regret any of my purchases... maybe FarCry. I already had Instincts on Xbox, but if I remember right, it was on sale for the same price as Evolution and I wanted to get that so I thought why not just get the 360 version.

#36 Posted by subrandom (117 posts) -

Neverend - it was purchased as an impulse buy to be a review exercise for really cheap games. However, after five minutes of playing neverend i lost all will to live.

#37 Posted by ParanoidFreak (1461 posts) -

 Command and Conquer 3, no RTS will ever work on a console.

#38 Posted by Ma7moud (805 posts) -

Kane and lynch was terrible.

#39 Posted by tec3297 (1170 posts) -

Stranglehold, thankfully I bought it used and was able to return it for a better game.

#40 Posted by Xeros606 (545 posts) -

a psp, accessories for it, and 7 games for it -$500
i just kept on buying games thinking that "okay, this is gonna be the one good psp game!" and being sorely diappointed every time.

bioshock - $60
wasnt a bad game, but after playing it once, i never wanna see it again. i should have rented it, i beat it in 3 days anyways.

geometry wars - 400 ms points/$5
i liked the demo but once i bought the full game, i played it once and havent played it since.

coldplay import single - $6
i feel so stupid for this one. i alread had x/y but i went ahead and bought the single cd for one of the songs since it had some b sides.

the wall - $30
imo one of the best albums, but at $30 i feel a little ripped off.

the laptop im using now - $1000
specs: 3.0ghz p4, 480 mb ram, 32 mb integrated intel grpahics 80 gb hard drive.  bought in 2005.

about 1/4 of the books i have - $50
i havent read em yet and dont plan on reading them.

I played the demo last weekend, it's terrible.

Shadowrun, O how I hate thee.

#44 Posted by Txheat (133 posts) -

Time Shift, some people may have liked it but i couldn't get past playing it for 5 mintues

#45 Posted by AndrewP (89 posts) -

Guitar Hero Aerosmith. I looked at the achievements and instantly went out and bought it. Wow, was that a bad decision. I had 970 gamerscore in about 4 days and a little sick to my stomach that I paid $2 a song for Aerosmith. I don't really listen to a lot of music and assumed that Aerosmith was good for some reason and I hated every minute of playing that game but I had to play it or else I would have wasted my $60.

I will never again buy a game based on achievements and achievements alone.
