As for me, I only buy games when I'm pretty sure I will enjoy them. I've played almost every game I've spent money on. Only exceptions are the STALKER series and Bioshock (both made me feel nauseous).
As everyone who has Steam knows, you never pay retail price for any game you buy off of it. Look at the Online Deals section of OCN. Mostly games are $2.50, $5, or $7.50. You can buy a lot of games off of Steam for what one retail game costs ($50 - 60).

As for my most disappointing game, I'd have to say ODST for 360. Bungie did really poorly on advertising. All their game trailers had you thinking you were fighting as a team (like in Halo Reach). In the actual game, you were a lone wolf trying to find your squadmates and didn't play as a team until the final mission. Also no matchmaking in multiplayer = FAIL.

Willow for the PC. You got to throw acorns at people. Gawd that was horrible. Returned it the next day.

Final Fantasy 13, I made it around 15-20hrs in and the whole being on rails, running down hallways, fighting, then more running got boring; put it away, haven't played it since.

Command and Conquer 4. This game really went downhill. Waste of money.

MapleStory... bought Nexon cards from 7-11, probably wasted about $70 on the game. Stupid MMOs like this are addicting thats why I avoid playing them.

The crap they put out now in the last few years makes me think I should get a different hobby
I've been considering it myself. Before I give up completely, I'm going to wait out the big releases this year to see if there's any gems. I'm also about to buy an xbox controller for my PC. Since almost everything coming out is a friggin' console port, I may as well try playing them with the proper input device.

To the OP (in alphabetical order because that's how I roll):

Assassin's Creed - I've tried for several hours to play this, but the oddball (console) control system combined with the "meh" story and repetition tend to turn me off far before reaching the end.

Dead Space - I don't care what anyone else says, this game is truly unplayable on PC. Retarded controls, retarded graphics issues...it's kind of like Bioshock and Mass Effect got together and had a retarded baby. Until I bought Dead Space, AC1 was my biggest gaming regret ever. Dead Space has now taken that "honor".

FEAR 2 - From the heavy console roots to the bungled Steam launch, FEAR 2 has permanently turned me off of preorders. I enjoyed playing the game even though it was a bit too easy, not scary, and only had a passing resemblance to the original, but it wasn't worth full price.

HL2 Series - Before you crucify me, let me explain. I bought the Orange Box, and I still consider it the single best deal in PC gaming history. I LOVED these games. I'm just annoyed that I bought Valve's BS about episodic content bringing a faster dev/release cycle. EP3 is the new DNF.

Mass Effect 2 - Like FEAR 2, I don't regret buying the game; just paying full price. I had fun playing it. I just don't feel that the minimal effort put into making this game justified the AAA price.

Honorable mentions - Anything from EA's RPG department, due to the excessive amounts of DLC attempting to nickle and dime me to death. Whatever happened to throwing gamers an occasional bone? So...X dev studio finished up some content that got cut before launch or whipped up some cool gear in their spare time. Instead of charging us for every little detail, why not try rewarding us once in a while for supporting you? CDProjekt did it with The Witcher, even going so far as to give away an almost completely rewritten game to people who bought the original version. Due to their dedication to gamers, CDProjekt is the only studio I will even consider preordering from. They're also the only studio I am still willing to pay full retail price. I'll wait till everything else goes on sale.

Mw2 and WoW.

spent $120 on Mw2 for PS3, played it that day and never again.
spent $70 on the WoW chest with WoW and TBC, played for a week, then never again.

Yes games cost that much here. :| Australia; where only the rich or the "pirates" can play games.
not to mention the fact that those overpriced games get the **** censored out of them here... like L4D2 :|
