Your Most Regretted Game Purchase

post #1 of 662
Thread Starter 
Thought this might be interesting idea...

Which games do you regret buying?

Which games made you squirm when you realised you spent $50+ on a turd?

Mine was Star Trek Online. So much potential and I'm a huge fan of ST, but this game was horribly boring. Not only did I spend on the game itself, I also had to pay for a subscription.

RIFT... my god. Played the trail and was like "yay!", bought the full game and am now like "eww!". Wish I'd put that money on something more useful. Also Avatar (the game)... spent about 2 years now regretting that purchase.

(Also as a little extra: I regret spending 2700 euros on wow. -.-)

Its a tie between crysis 2 and black ops. Those two games made me stop buying games on release day. I'm happy I learned my lesson if I hadn't I would have been stuck with another bad game. *insert brink joke here*

Black Ops for me.

I don't regret buying Crysis 2 at all.

'twas quite simple really.

* Normal edition of the game and then upgrade to collector's edition.
* Blizzard store pets, mounts etc etc.
* 5 years of subscription.
* Gender, Faction, Race, server changes (lost track of how many of those).
* Recruiting myself for the RAF-mounts.

I am so ashamed of myself. That game is a virus! Avoid it like the plague!
