I regret buying Kenshi. Even that it's still in development(since ages), it's most probably the worst Beta/Alpha game that has been being sold. I never experienced such difficulties- if there were any option, I would make the "dude" suffer -kidding-! ^_^
As for me, that game shouldn't be on any store, yet. .... Yes, I understand that that guy needs that cash to build the game- but truth is, you also need Starter-cash/Investement. He released a game full of bugs,crashes, unstable settings and so forth and so forth. He should have at least finance the First Steps. I mean, I have a heavy computer, an very expensive and VERY strong one- even so that game make my little baby suffer. 

I also regret buying Final Fantasy XIII and some other titles. That particular FF game was .... horrible on PS3. Gush, I shouldn't have bought it.
I feel better though- FF14 Closed Beta seems to be great- it'll be a new FF, an MMO. Like XIII the concept is different from what we know from the FF Series. But, I still like it better than that horrible FFXIII!

Arcania Gothic 4.  Played and loved the First 3 Gothic games, thoroughly enjoyed Risen 1 & 2....then tried out Arcania Gothic 4, and decided to personally declare it non-canon.  I now pretend it doesn't exist, and insist to anyone who asks that Gothic is merely a trilogy, and that the no 4th game was ever made.

Who needs to buy games when there are torrents?


I jest ofcourse. Nobody downloads stuff illegally.... Right?

Some of us around here think that the hundreds of artists, programmers, and designers that work their arses off to put these games out deserve to get paid for their work.

Only if the result is not yet another crappy AAA-title as most are in recent times. Voting with the wallet is a way to say "not want this shit! give me something worth it!"

Agreed fully!

But voting with your wallet shouldn't mean "pirate or not". It should just mean playing or not playing something.

To do a decision about buy or not you have to get a demo of the game to get at least a basic idea. Demo versions are being called extinct by AAAs so the only way left is to play the game for free. Like always the problem is not the customer but the AAAs up to ripping off customers with overpriced and mediocre products while crying pirate every now and then. Pirating is the "result" of the real problem (which is in the AAA play field).

Okay, I absolutely love Duke Nukem games but I do regret pre-ordering Duke Nukem Forever and spending the big bucks on the Special Edition.. >_>

Rogue galaxy I despise this lazy and tedious load of ass.
The justification to do things in that game is beyond what I am willing to tolerate.

I'm tempted to say the Crysis games. Or at least, Crysis, Warhead, and Crysis 2. I got them together on steam a while back. Crysis was okay, though I encountered a glitch that prevented the final cutscene from playing after I beat the boss, so I had to watch the ending on youtube. Warhead was a bit more fun, but I wouldn't call it great.

And then there's Crysis 2, which I've just been bored out of my skull with as I try to get myself to finish it. I don't 'dislike' it per se, I just find it very dull. The only fun I've got out of it has been in the stealth segments, and the part near the beginning while jumping around on rooftops.

So the series to me, at it's best is only "okay", but is mostly pretty boring. Luckily they were on sale, so I don't regret getting them too strongly.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, and Black Ops. Back in the day when Call of Duty was decent and we had COD4 and WaW, I thought Call of Duty was great. Then came Modern Warfare 2... it was alright, but was terrible on PC due to them removing dedicated servers, and it getting filled with hackers. And well, Black Ops was just terrible. Last Call of Duty I ever spent money on. I also regret Dead Island, it was boring to me because I do not like using only melee weapons, I prefer guns. and I regret buying the game The War Z, now known as Infestation Survival Stories. Even though I got it on sale for $3.5, it is still a horrible game and a complete waste of money.

Modern Warfare 3.  I bought it because my cousin nagged me to play with him (he's 31 by the way) but I played it about 3 times and now it gathers dust.

Truthfully, a game that I absolutely regret buying period are the "Kane&Lynch" games. I bought Dog Days and Dead Men at the same time, because my friend was nagging me to get them at GameStop. Well, once we got back to my house, we started to play them, and I just could NOT get into the story at all. Beat the first mission of Dead Men, and figured out that it's just like basically every other game in it's genre. Haven't picked either of them up since. Even though I got both of them for a total price of around $16-$20, It really wasn't worth that at all.

Anarchy Reigns I thought was a really disappointing game. I expected alot more from the same people that brought me Beyonetta and Vanquish, both of which are some of my favorite games for PS3. You had know idea what was going on in the story, and the gameplay and fighting felt clunky and dull compared to Beyonetta.

I'm the worst person in the world when it comes to buying PC games ever since it stopped being my main hobby.
It started with Big Rigs and ended with Brink. So much unbelievably unplayable stuff in-between!

Sony Battle All Stars Royale (or whatever). So unpolished, regretted buying it after 5min of playing.

And you are fully right about that. I remember how proud I was when I worked for Gothic 3, and I remember my frustration when I quit Arcania during developement (actually, then I was producer for the game) because the funding companies advisor removed almost all I loved about the Gothic series.

When I buy something and I realize it's not as good as I expected, I normally try to look on the bright side of the game and at least try to enjoy it for a while. However, there are two games which I couldn't do that with: RE6 and Operation Raccoon City...

My precious moneys :[

i shouldn't have bought wave race back then. the only thing that was at least a bit funny are the tricks.

Sep 29 2013, 6:59pm Anchor

Its not a game, its in game content, the TOG II* in World of Tanks, costs like $10USD and is actually shockingly terrible. Only in game content I bought because I heard people saying it was amazing. What a waste of spare change.

Batman of the Future. Doesn't even have a save system :(

Jak & Daxter is the best video game franchise on the PS2! No, seriously :)

Oct 6 2013, 5:51pm Anchor

Some of the games I regret buying are Grand Theft Auto 4, Borderlands, Final Fantasy 13, The Witcher 2, Terraria, and Evoland. It isn't that these games are actually horrible, I just didn't really care for them.

80% of my Steam list. Not because they are bad, but because i haven't played them yet, and in retrospect, I'd rather have the money. :)
