Games you wish you never bought...

For me it would be: Lufia: The Ruins of Lore.

 

It had some nice, tough boss battles... but it was SO glitch and bug ridden, that it took the fun right out of it. Not to mention the quick save system. That didn't work so well when the game kept on freezing in the same area over and over without any way to get past it.

 

How about you guys?

Maybe some games that I bought only 'cause they were cheap and they remain factory sealed. Deus Ex and MGS4 for example.

I have some PSN games that aren't worth getting like Daytona USA. That game has no split screen which is so stupid and the online feature is worthless since almost no one is around to play. It's basically a single player driving game. I swear to god one of the modes is called karaoke where you sing to the song while driving. What.........the.......**bleep**! It also serves less of a purpose since one of the songs is mostly instrumental so they also fail at making a pointless feature to become even more pointless.

 

I also highly regret buying Mass Effect 1 on PS3 since the port sucks so hard. It was a complete waste of $20 since I stopped playing it. I have to disagree with the fans on this. Gameplay wise, my favorite is Mass Effect 3.

 

I've also made a huge mistake on buying X-Man Arcade, Tony Hawk's Project 8, and the worst offender of all is Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). One of the worst and easily the most disappointing game I've ever played in my life.

Uncharted 2. People said it was so amazing butt it wasnt. I hate when people hype things that are bad like that. Drake was not as funny and the ending was stupid

Resident Evil 5

Fun game. But clunky as hell. My least favorite RE in the series.

God of War: Ascension

Glitchfest. Plain and simple.

DJ Hero

Seemed fun at the time. Looking back it was giant waste of money.

Playstation All-Stars

Okay I actually enjoyed the game. But I regret buying it at full price. It was SO not worth 60 bucks.

I have no games I regret buying because I usually do tons of research before dropping $60 on entertainment. Now... games I regret renting? THAT list is enormous.... because if I don't buy a game outright, I'm usually correct in the assumption that I wouldn't have liked it.

Thief comes to mind in that regard...

There's quite a few games out there I regret having purchased due to their poor quality. I'll try putting together a list of poorly made games that stink for one reason or another:

 

Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon

Katamari Damacy

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Demon's Souls

SIlent Hill Origins

Valhalla Knights

Yoshi's New Island

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES

Gran Turismo

Armored Core 4

Resonance of Fate

Legend of Mana

Advance Wars

Call of Duty

Dead Nation

Pushmo

Eufloria

Alex Kidd in Miracle World

Medal of Honor: Rising Sun

Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader

Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops/Portable Ops +

Final Fantasy XIII-2

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?

 

There are many other unsatisfying games I've played over the years, but there's also plenty more I didn't pay for or at lest didn't buy directly (such as those that came with the Plus service). These are some of the ones I can remember having had to shell out the money for and not being impressed with.
