I played Guild Wars 1. I can say without doubt there's a bunch of regret there.

Minecraft, Dead Island, Mount & Blade, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, Far Cry 2, The Witcher (first one, the combat mechanics made me lol) and Evochron Mercenary.

I'm also not a fan of Just Cause 2, and I only bought it for the multiplayer mod. Other than that, its a very shallow game in my opinion.

Also, Skyrim.

Also, I have every Call of Duty for the PS3.  It's shameful, and has made me seriously think about what I played in the past.  Haven't touched those games in like a year.

Also, just about every game for my PS3 except MGS4, Blazblue: CT, and  Contra Hard Corps Uprising.

I found Dead Island very hard to get into. Everything works well, combat, quests, level system, but I found the pace horrifically slow. The same thing with Far Cry 2.

I enjoyed Skyrim, for the sense of adventure. The scale of the world is terrible though, a whole country in only about 14 square miles, and like 100 people? Hell, there were more guards than civilians. Plus characters had little improvement from Oblivion in terms of liveliness. The quests weren't terrible, but the only ones I thoroughly enjoyed were the Dark Brotherhood's.

Call Duty has had decent campaigns, but other than that I don't care for them. I only own Modern Warfare 2, it was a gift at Christmas.

Games that I've regret buying for my PC? Let's see...

1) Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb. I never finished it due to the crappy PC port. Indy 1 was fun but this? No sir.
2) Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder. Most-Boring-Point'n'clicker-Ever.
3) Kill Switch. I still wait for the rest of the game. Seriously.

I really liked trying out the PC port on loan, but I just don't have the time to invest in a game like that. Otherwise, it's a beautifully designed game with great voice acting and an incredible combat system.

Black ops. I just can't deal with how everything in that game works. It's like you take all of the mechanics that would normally make sense, and then flip them upside down. I guess it's not just black ops, though. This is the same for every COD game I've played.

Just some things that bug me about the COD series...

  • Whose idea was it to implement prone in a game that is close quarters? Seriously, it makes no sense. You're just ASKING for people to camp and abuse it. It has its uses in large scale maps like in battlefield, but nothing is more obnoxious than trying to shoot someone and they go prone WHILE shooting you. Since when can you go prone AND still shoot someone with perfect accuracy?
  •  Claymores and semtexes. OK, I can understand having claymores in the game, but is it really that necessary? It takes zero skill to use claymores, and it ruins the game IMO when you turn a corner and just blow up because someone setup a claymore hiding behind something that you would have never seen. And semtexes. Those fucking semtexes. Grenades already have a huge explosion radius, why do they have to stick to stuff now?

I am not ashamed to admit that proning in a pile of player corpses and playing dead, only to surprise my friends as they run past me, made for some pure joyous moments. Just one of those guilty pleasures.

Oh and to not stray from the topic I will add (drumroll): Shadow the Hedgehog for the Nintendo Game Cube. Granted this was years back, but just what was I even expecting?

As a designer, I've got no explanation for the prone but as for the explosives... you won't like the answer. It's for people who keep playing but suck at the game. I don't know what rank you have to reach to unlock them, but trust me, those are in there for people who either don't care (like people who use shotgun in Gears of War 3's MP) or who just don't have the best aim/reflexes. With those, they feel they have some chance. Without them, the game would lose those players and that's the last thing Call of Expansion Pack (with DLC coming soon!) would want to have happen.

This is similar to how you unlocked the grenade launcher very soon in Bioshock 2's multiplayer. You start out sucking, usually, and then have to unlock weapons but eventually you get things like the pistol and MG stabilizers or the crossbow damage increase or the elephant gun scope. However, to get the player through the first few levels, they need the grenade launcher (which admittedly still requires 2-3 hits to kill someone in Bioshock 2, most of the time anyway).

Defiantly Witcher, the combat mechanic is just horrible.

Alone in the Dark, the Nightmare Begins. Mainly because the guy promised me it would be the original Alone in the Dark, and because the game wasn't that good.

Yeah, I played a good bit of Witcher 2 and... it feels like they took a hack'n'slasher and tried to make it harder to make up for a lackluster main combat system.

I can't believe no1 has said World of Warcraft.  Every expansion is like $60 when it first comes out, and then you have to pay $15/month to play.  Its a money hole!  I played up through WotLK and decided to quit before Cata.  Later I found out there is a great site that provides WoW for free, and has 20k+ players (across several servers).  I played on it for quite a while, getting a druid to level 80.  It has its bugs, but its a great free alternative.  Man I wasted a lot of money xd.

When it comes to WoW it didn't seem to be that bad of a game for you considering you went and hunted for a free alternative? However money is quite painful paying each month (the subscription alone can get you a fair share of indie games a month). imo I hated getting: Tower wars, Great Big war game (first 2 games I never looked into before buying, but they were cheap), Black Ops I found disappointing in multiplayer but single player I found tops for an fps, mount and blade w/ fire and sword, advance wars: days of ruin, paper mario 3 was the biggest letdown for me (*weeps softly*), mass effect 2+3, zero hour 2 (face palm cannon activated).

I enjoyed the game, but I regret buying it - especially since there was a free alternative available that I didn't know about.

I've pretty much regretted every single MMO I've played. The only reason I've been stupid enough to buy several of them is because of overenthusiastic friends who like that kind of games.

- Lord of the Rings online (pretty, but the same as all the others)
- Warhammer Online
- Guildwars 2 

Never again D:
