Which games of your collection Did you regret Buying?

Forums - Sales Discussion - Which games of your collection Did you regret Buying?

The only time I mind buying a game is if I paid full price, so FFXIII and MW2. But you'll notice they are not in my collection anymore!

And I have to ask andremop what he considers a "non-generic" game, because I have never in my almost 30 years of gaming played anything like Oblivion.



Around the Network

I'll stick to current games here:

  • Dead Rain -- don't get me wrong, I liked the game and it even opened the possiblity enjoying quick time events to me (even made me play God of War), I just regret paying full price for the game.  It isn't worth $60 since it's about a six hour game with little to no replay value.  It's fun, I'm just upset I payed full price.
  • Killzone 2 -- I just didn't like this game.  I didn't even appreciate playing it and was a total waste of money.
  • Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm -- Hated this game too which is a shame because I actually liked the fighting and thought it looked incredible.  So why did I hate it?  Because of the shitty open worl quest crap they make you do.  No, I don't want to take 5000 steps or fucking play hide and seek with whatever the kid just so I can continue on with the game.
  • Resistance 2 -- R:FoM was a decent launch game but I'm upset I bought Resistance 2 since they took away that made R:FoM worthwhile and replaced it with everything they could to make it even more generic.
  • Valkyria Chronicles -- I just never got into the game and it's collecting dust at the moment.  Who knows, maybe in 20 years it will be worth $100.
  • Okami -- I heard everyone rave for years about how great this game was and when I heard it was coming to the Wii I thought I was in for a treat!  When I played it I was greated with walls and walls of text.  Fuck that, if I want to read a book I'll read a book.
  • Rayman Raving Rabbids: TV Party -- So I didn't buy this one but someone bought it for me and I haven't even taken it out of its plastic.  The first game was a brilliant launch game and the second just underwhelmed me even though it did fix some problems.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess -- I have a confession to make: I just don't care about Zelda games anymore.  I bought the game when I bought me Wii and I have never gotten more than a few hours into it.
  • Eternal Sonata -- Beautiful but shitty game.  It was incredibly unbalanced (they chick with the bow just murders everything and heals your entire party in the same turn every turn) and Forte Fermata has to be one of the worst damn dungeons I've ever had the displeasure of playing.
  • Fallout 3 -- I don't regret buying Oblivion, I regret buying Fallout 3.  Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.  I was fooled with Fallout 3 thinking it wouldn't have the same problems as Oblivion and I was dread wrong.  The story was at least more interesting than Oblivion in that I got further than the first quest, but wasn't interesting enough to keep me wandering the wastelands and dealing with the stupid easy difficulty curve and boring gameplay.
  • The Orange Box (360) -- I don't regret buying this on the PC, I only regret buying it on the 360.
  • Spore -- Awfully boring game.  Played it for a few days and never touched it again.
  • Sims 3 -- Pretty much see above.  I actually enjoy the game, I just stopped playing because they wanted me to buy everything for the builder part and fuck that.  Building the houses and populating them is my favorite part, I wish they would have let me know they were selling me the bare minimum when they sold me the game.
  • Lost: Via Domus -- FUCK that was such a bad game.  I really wish I would have saved myself the four or so hours of frustration and just read a walk through to get the extra little bit of the Lost world.


Brutal Legend. So much potential. :[

batman returns for the SNES. You might remember it form a AVGN episode. That game sucks so bad it makes me cry for my wasted childhood.

I think you might be thinking of Batman Forever which was a travesty!

Batman returns was made by Konami and while it's nothing epic, it's a fairly decent beat em up.


You're absolutely right.  The game is so bad i can't even remember it's name



                                                                           

Ususally I never regret buying games but I have one exception:

Borderlands.

OMFG why did I even bother...

Splatterhouse on Virtual Console. The Simpsons Game. GTA IV. Guitar Hero 4.



I don't really regret buying any games in my collection, it's the price I bought certain ones at that I regret. Velvet Assassin would be the one that jumps out at me.
