I actually can't think of any game of the top of my head but why is this in the Nintendo forum?

Damn it! Because of the two Nintendo games that I picked. Oh  well I will let it go until someone sees it I guess.

Children of Mana, no wait I bought that horrible game.

Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here?

So then what is your next choice? Zelda: The Wand of Gamelion?

Care to evaluate as to why?

While I personally enjoyed Xenonlade. I can understand why some people may have a problem with it.

- After level 40ish you never get anymore abilities

- Maps are wayyy to big. This would be alright if their was actual content to sustain the maps.

- Sidequests are the same. Kill X, Collect X

- Battle System never really requires thinking or strategy (does on occassion)

- Sidequests over level your character making the game dull

- Too many monster pallet swaps

Some of the reasons I could think of that someone may not like the game. As I said great game and I really like it but it has quite a few problems. Then again, what game doesn't nowadays?

Am I allowed to post games that are not related to any Nintendo systems? Because, you know, this is in the Nintendo forum?

Anyway, I'm sort of happy that I missed Civilization V. As far as I know, it's not what it was supposed to be and I'm guessing I would have hated paying 40€ for it. I'm still looking forward to buying it but it'll take some time for the GotY Edition's price to come down.

Never heard of the existence of CD-i games until 5 years later. At the time, I would've bought Mario games regardless of knowing how bad they were, glad I was il-informed. . .

It's hard for me to say that I'm glad I missed a game, cause that would be like saying "I haven't played it, so there's no way to know if I would have enjoyed the game or not, but somehow I'm sure it was very wrong for me".
I know I decided not to play tons of games cause their concept or gameplay does not look appealing enough for me. And that's fine, of course, those games were not meant for me, but not because of something intrinsic to them, but because of my taste or my mood. See the difference? I am having a hard time to express it clearly.

On the other hand, it has happened to me many times that I gave a chance to games I was not interested and I even hated in the first place and I ended up loving the experience. Final Fantasy XIII, by instance.
