Batman: AA is amazing, just beat it last night. Best $7.50 I've spent on a game in a long time.

Now that I had taken more time to think about this...Every game since 2009...That's why I wait until the price drops to $20 or $30 before I buy it now

C&C Tiberian Twilight. Installed, played one hour, uninstalled. On shelf. C&C Generals FTW.

Just fired it up a few days ago, and man it sucks. I mainly play as a sniper in fps - and I like what they tried to do with BC2, with the whole bullet dropping thing. But it is so damn inaccurate (especially with the lag and pings and whatnot). The sniping is so random. Sometimes I aim above the guy - and boom headshot. Then I turn to the guy next to him - and nothing, I try all sorts of shots, until finally getting a headshot by directly aiming at his head (this is from quiet a distance), and boom headsot. ??????? Completely random sniping has turned me off this game. Also, it is full of bugs and glitches, and I always get huge amounts of screen tearing with this game (don't get it with any other). I hear people talking about measuring lag, but I have no idea how to do this, and nor do I plan to find out.

Honestly, I hope BF3 is alot better than this laggy/buggy port. I would much rather dead-on/no-bullet dropping - arcade style - COD sniping than this random POS
I understand you may have had bad personal experiences with the game/graphics/screen tearing etc.

But dude you are a serious minoriy, BC2 is one of the best online FPS games there is and it is decently balanced.

As almost all online games have "some" lag from time to time, maybe you should try a different class??? take off the wookie suit and play the objective as assault or engineer?? You will find it much more rewarding rather than popping random headshots from time to time when lag allows for it. BC2 as well as B2 are team based games And unless you are an assault sniper with c4 and motion mines, you aren't really playing for the team.

Anyways - Sniper Ghost Warrior must be one of the WORST games of all time

I think the wrst money i ever spent was Gears of War 2. Limited edition at that. It is still in the closet, i have never been able to open, brings back some bad memories, so i have never played the game.

Final Fantasy XIV, UI was terrible. Can't believe I stuck around to give it a chance. Didn't change though.

Quite possibly Never Winter Nights 2 and all expansions... bought everything at once based on screen shots and some pretty decent reviews... I have played it just a hand full of times and it is still a very poorly optimized game -not to mention control issues, even my sig rig hates it when I fire it up.

90% of what I bought for dreamcast, I was 16 out of highschool making tons of money during the dot com boom, purchased nearly every game there was, and ended up playing bass fishing and virtua tennis the whole time
