  • Ace of Spades
  • Aliens: Colonial Marines - My friends and I are doing an LP of this game. Because of the sheer garbage that this game is, we manage to play about 30 mins of it, leave it, then come back the following year to try and finish it again.
  • Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs - I have sunk plenty of hours into Dark Decent, and am pleased with the amount of custom content it provides to keep the scares coming... Now A Machine for Pigs.. what a boar(get it?!? coz bore...eh)
  • Dead Island: Riptide - A copy-pasted product, sadly all the bugs were also pasted over.
  • The Expendables 2 Videogame - I feel sorry for my friend who bought it for us to play.
  • Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days - Funny game... Not worth the cost though
  • Postal 3

I agree with Machine for Pigs but only partially. Many fragments of this game are really scarred.
From my side:
- The Void (or tension) - shitty gamepay and terrible controls
- Homefront - crap
- Terminator Salvation - crap
- Spore
- ...and few others I just want not to remember :)

X:Rebirth. man, the design choices of this game were so bad i thought they were trolling at some point.
What were they thinking? ''hey, i think our general audience will be mostly 7 year olds so let's add as much retarded unneccesary minigames to the game as possible!''
also, i've never felt so limited and held back in a world so open...

  • Necrovision - Some really dumb FPS with paranormal elements. I am not terribly upset that I got it, just that there were so many things wrong with it.
  • Aliens vs Predator(2010) - Jesus Christ. I couldn't even play this game when it first came out. I pre-ordered the game and when I got it, it would crash several times. When I finally got the game working, it just felt repetitive and unfinished.
  • Deponia - I was looking for a new and bizarre point-and-click game. I really enjoy point-and-click games and some of the modern ones like Sam and Max really hit home. But this was just weird and unfulfilling. The puzzles could be ridiculous and frustrating and the characters are completely unlikable and unrelatable.
  • Dungeon Defenders - This was actually a fun game. I regret buying this because my friends who played it stopped playing almost immediately after I got it.
  • Magicka - Same as Dungeon Defenders. However, there were some aspects of the game I found just plain annoying, like the plot and characters

Blood of the Werewolf -- Cheaply designed, lazily balanced, unpolished hash.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown -- Damn near broken on my PC, and far from the epic "strategy' game I was expecting. Here's hoping Xenonauts can do better.

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack -- I can't get past the second level because of how shoddy a port this is. The controls simply won't respond.

Batman Arkham Origins: Cold Cold Heart -- It can go to cold cold hell.

Deadlight -- Arguably intriguing premise brought down by clear lack of quality assurance, testing, and some of the worst writing I can ever think of.

Imagine Me -- ...who charges $9.99 for a game that is so far from unfinished after several years of development, that it feels like a proof of concept demo? Never should have gone to Early Access this early.

Iron Brigade -- Just wasn't that great, sadly.

InMomentum -- Same as Iron Brigade, a sad disappointment.

Toy Soldiers -- Again, good idea, but lacked the ability to hook me, so it's just money wasted for the most part.

There has only been two games I've really truly regretted buying, Devastation and Far Cry 2... both of them looked so good and has interesting ideas but where poorly executed or in the case of Devastation, were completely and utterly broken.

@Minto: Agreed on FC2, I think it had pretty good gameplay in terms of shooting and driving, but the world and story just wasn't enough to keep me in the game more than a few hours. And of course, while it's been said many times by many people, the whole malaria thing was just ridiculous.

I've been playing Far Cry 3 lately, and I'm actually liking it a lot. It fixes the biggest flaw(IMO) of its predecessor, as it has an actual story and decent characters. Not the best or anything, but it's enough to keep me interested and keep me playing.

- Kairo (One of the most boring games ever made in my opinion)
- Gone home (I don't like to use the word "overrated". Frankly, I kinda dislike that, but that's the perfect way to describe that lame game)
- Real Horror Stories Ultimate Edition (A newground flashgame you actually have to pay for... I got it as a gift though luckily)
- Dream (A bit better than Kairo but still a rather boring game)
- Machine for pigs (I agree it wasn't that great. The game itself wasn't horrible, it was just a huge disapointment since I, like many others, thought it was going to be like the original Amnesia)

Lego Racers 2 - Not nearly as good as the first game, disapointment.

Battlefield 3 - got it ages after release so i didn't have access to 80% of the maps, really grindy and just generic.
Endless Space - worst 4x game I've ever played. Mind numbingly shallow and awful pretensions at battles.
Endless Legend - everyone said it was so much better than endless space, and sure, the battles are decent. The game itself though is just as shallow as Endless Space and the battles aren't good enough to compensate for it.
Sword of the Stars II - terrible, broken and ugly game. Such a shame after how fun SotS 1 was.
Borderlands 2 - awful gameplay and the most boring loot of any game ever. Compounded with the lack of boss battles, i honestly dont see any appeal to this game.
Hearts of Iron 3 - the game is so unintuitive, lacks any feedback and has some of the most questionable design decisions I've ever seen. The game works, in its own unique kind of way which is more than i thought when i first got it but that doesn't make it good.
Rome 2: Total War - even with the Emperor Edition this game just lacks and personality or flavour. The gameplay is functional now, I wouldn't say it does more but at least it functions unlike on launch. This game is broken from its very core and is beyond repair. Unsurprising then, that CA released Attila to be the fixed version and insulted everyone who bought Rome 2 in doing so.

Starcraft 2 WoL

Stronghold Crusader II, just a cheap sequel of the wonderfully amazing Crusader I game. So much bugs in there and you can even buy DLCs for that messed up thingy. Just DON'T buy that..

Battlefield 3, ended up regreting it because EA let tons of hackers play without proper moderation. (Jet pilots would snipe me each time i would spawn, random spawn areas right after one another... among other crap like that)

Battlefield 4, I didnt learn my lesson and the launch was terrible, and the game STILL to this day is a bug ridden cess pool....

both above examples are 360 editions btw

Good news? I learned my lesson and wont ever buy a EA title ever again.
Bad News? EA owns exclusive rights to make Starwars games..... #%$%^@ dont deserve that shit. so now Starwars is blacklisted too with EA \o/

COD Black Ops : The Game where attack helicopters are sent into battle with killer fax machines (the guns sounded like a fax machine printing)

Hmmm what else did I regret buying....pretty sure there are a few more EA titles im forgetting.....

ah, here is a old regret : Sonic Heros....game was to childish, even for being a sonic game...i mean SERIOUSLY... "blarghhhh" no, i didnt buy sonic 06 thankfully
