Elder Scrolls Oblivion

of the 15h I played the game the first 5 hours were exciting, the next 5 hours were repetitive and the last 5 hours were a shore

good thing I haven't bought Ocarina of Time, for my verdict of that game would be similar, but the feedback would be tremendously more lethal :P



Like someone mentioned before, I have purchased games but they weren't bad but I they didn't really interest me that much.

Some games like Killzone 2, Tomb Raider: Underworld, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, Sonic Unleashed.



sam & max season 1 for the Wii, the frame rate is so bad, and the puzzles lack of sense made me put the game away.

Tons from the last generation. I didnt really do research on games before i bought them and so many of them sucked so terribly.

This gen, the only games I haven't completed are Lair, folklore, and this one shovelware game. On handhelds there are a bunch i haven't finished- i bought them for the gimmick controls or the radical storyline

Dear child, I do hope you sleep in the presence of bodyguards

psp:
wipeout pure - maybe i lost interest in those kind of racers, but thwe handling was so terrible that i was just hitting walls all the time,
Patapon - i still don't see appeal of this game and after a while it became just grinding for new items on the same 2-3 stages,
Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 - simply terrible game and i though i would never play again fun golf game until i got Pangya,
Toca Race Driver 2 - i though that i would get a racing game not series of mini games on race track,
Monster Hunter Freedom 2 - too complicated controls made this game no fun at all,
Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth - at some point it just wasn't fun and i stuck,
gran turismo portable - after spending 8 hours in the game in 2 weeks i just sold this game, driving in this game felt like a chore and the fact that even on highest difficulty setting i was just driving by AI and never met them again was dissapointing. bad game even as a pick up & play title. plus the music was annoying as hell(5 laps on nuburgring or that huge ass oval track while hearing the exact same annoying track in a loop was just tiresome),

wii:
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance - i though it was great and then i played it, this game is doing pretty much 90% of things for you:/



Yes, on several occasions.. The more recent ones I are:

Red Steel - Novel concept at the time, but the controls were pretty horrid and the single player got boring

The Conduit - Got close to beating it, but just got bored in the single player, and the game tended to make me nauseous

Mass Effect - Not really bad as much as I just couldn't nail the controls and the battle mechanics. Just didn't click for me.

RE5 - Bored me, and seemed too much like RE4, just in a new environment. Didn't play this one much.

Manhunt 2 - Somewhat sluggish controls and boring gameplay after the novelty of the finishing moves wore off ultimately deterred me from finishing it.
