Hello giantbomb community, I haven't really been to this forum in a while, but that's not the point, the question is, what are some games you wish that you never purchased? Me?, I would have to say Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time, this game was suppose to be epic for me, but, I was just extremely sad with it.
 
One more game I would have to say I regret purchasing would have to be Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories, I wish I had waited for the full pack, but hey, we all make mistakes right? So tell me, what games have YOU regret purchasing? (so far at least)

Diablo 2. Man, this game was a huge disappointment. Even though I bought it for 10 euro I still regret it!

Fable 2 maybe, I got it at the same time as Fallout 3 and ended up liking Fallout 3 much much more and I still finished it but never played it since, don't even have some of the easier achievements.

Man, my list is endless, but here are the most I can remember: 
Snoopy's Flying Ace 
Worms 2 Armageddon 
Far Cry 2 
Fallout 3 
Splosion Man 
 
I have to say I regret Splosion Man the most. Its possibly one of the most dullest games of all time. The only thing it has going for it is the doughnut song.

Great game that I spent too much time on: World of Warcraft (not anymore, thankfully).
Not-so-good game I definatly could live without: Final Fantasy XIII. I completed and almost S-Ranked it, but damn it was disappointing start to finish.

Skate 2. Biggest let down I've had so far. Love the first one but for everything they fixed in the sequel, they fuck up something else, to the point of being unplayable at times. I really really wanted to like it as well.

Transformers WFC
Battlefield Bad Co 1.
MGS4, I dont know why people say its a good game. I found the movement controls and aiming to be really sub-par for whats considered a big title on PS3.
Little Big Planet, stopped being cute after about 30 minutes.
 ...basically anything I bought for PS3.
Fable 2

I agree with that remark on Splosion Man. Had a lot of fun with it at first and then it just got so damn boring.  
 
I would also have to say Left 4 Dead 2. Even though it technically is a better sequel I like everything from the first one better like the maps and characters.

Only a few, since I have to be very selective of game purchases to being with.
 

Games That, In Hindsight, I Probably Should Not Have Payed Full Price For

Due to my limited budget over the years, I can usually justify the games that I buy, especially those at full price.  But, there are some that, looking back on, I probably should have just waited on or rented at best.

1. Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution

It's a good game, especially for a console strategy game, but there were other great games of 2008 that I missed out on because of the $60 I spent on this bad boy.

2. Perfect Dark Zero

I was a huge fan of the first installment and it was a launch title for the Xbox 360, a perfect recipe for me to waste money on. It's still a quality title, but I never put enough hours into it to match the price tag.

3. Resistance 2

Again, another quality game, but I just never got into the multiplayer and the single player campaign left enough to be desired that makes me wonder why I payed the full price tag for it. Again, there were other better games of 2008 that I could have purchased instead.

Brutal Legend and about half my Steam games list. I'm already preparing my credit card for the ass raping it's going to get next month in the Steam Christmas sale. It has become a yearly tradition at this point.
 
I'm also sure that a few of the games I bought on my PS3 Binge will be disappointing.

Ended up trading it in after I beat it

Most of my games. I buy them when the first come out and only play them for a few weeks. After that, I'm done with it. Talk about a waste of money...

I bought that game for the pre-order bonus. I didn't receive the pre-order bonus, and never opened the game. Money well spent...
