This weekend I went to my library and for the first time in ages I decided to browse thru the tiny game section they had there. Anyway I made the fatal mistake of checking out Silent Hill Shattered Memories for the Wii...this game is seriously the biggest piece of crap I have ever played! The controls are terrible, you can't defend yourself because you have no weapons, all the game consists of is just walking around and getting chased by monsters that glomp you to death (im not kidding).

I still have this game checked out for another week but I'm dropping it off at the library first thing tomorrow! Just having that POS game in my house makes me feel dirty.

Not sure many people remember this game Dark Sector but it's horrific camera controls and glitches made me want to break the blasted disc in two.

Aw, really? I actually rather liked that one. Dark Sector wasn't the greatest game I've played but I enjoyed it all the way through.

My friend enjoyed the game too after I gave it to him which I'm happy he did but for myself I just didn't care for the game at all.

Cursed Crusade and Air Conflicts Secret Wars. Both games had the worst voice acting I have ever heard. Luckily enough, I paid less than $20 for both so no harm no foul in my book.

I regret buying:

Mirror's Edge(360)-I just hate everything about it.
Mortal Kombat(360)-All the characters look like they are on steriods and the x ray finishers were implemented wrong.
Fight Night Round 4(360)-I hated the way they changed how you recover from knockouts.
Halo CE Anniversary(360)- I hate how it is so laggy and broken the online multiplayer, it made me go back to playing Halo 3's online multiplayer.
The Fight:Lights out(Ps3)-Man was the hype misleading, I constantly calibrated the two move controllers & changed my room around to help with my boxing but the camera never read my moves properly even when I went slow.
Uncharted 3(ps3)-I just think this game was truly rushed & underdeveloped, I loved & adored Uncharted 2 as my favorite Ps3 game next to Heavy Rain but 3 was a step backwards.
No More heroes:HP(Ps3)- It was horribly ported, too much screen tearing & frame rate issues for me to truly enjoy it like I did on my Wii.
The Wii zapper(Wii)- What a waste of money & time, could barely use it on certain FPS.

I totally forgot about the PS3 Move game Fight:Lights Out, I agree completely that game was another atrocious release. Though only equal to the Kinect game Rise Of Nightmares that my friend bought and one I truly wish I never played.

The Wii Zapper was fantastic for Link's Crossbow Training, but otherwise useless

I loved Rise of Nightmares. While it can get awkward having to walk in a Kinect game's 3D environments, it worked pretty well. I also dug the corny storyline as a House of the Dead fan. Probably my favorite Kinect game. Still waiting on Crimson Dragon.

I disagree. The Wii Zapper was the stupidest thing they ever released for the Wii...$20 for a piece of plastic and a free "game"? please...

I feel like Link's Crossbow Training was worth at least $20 by itself. You should try playing it. It is very fun.

Negative. I had Link's Crossbow Training because I was silly and bought the damn Wii Zapper back when it came out in '07. The game was total crap and forgettable...and I'm a huge Zelda fan, not that it really mattered for Link's Crossbow Training but yeah.

But what really pissed me off the most about the Wii Zapper, was the fact that I bought it just to play Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles with it(another crap Wii game, go figure) but the game required you to press the "A" button on the remote to pick up weapons and healing items, which made the physical process of doing so while holding the Zapper impossible...did they actually test this thing out on any games beside Link's Crossbow Training? Biggest waste of $20 ever.

I totally regretted buying:

GTA IV (360) - Such a huge letdown compared to the PS2 trilogy. Everything about this game blows.
Bayonetta (360) - I know a lot of people liked this game, but I just couldn't get into it. The controls were retarded and all the characters were so damn bland and generic. I tried restarting the game over a few times but could never make it past the first act before I lost interest and stopped playing.
COD 4 (360) - The only time I ever let myself get pressured into buying such an overhyped and overrated POS like COD, all thanks to my idiot friends I had. It's been almost five years since and I still shake my head for buying a game I had zero interest in buying.
Alan Wake (360) - Had been looking forward to this one, considering it was in development hell for over 5 years, but it just really disappointed me...not really what I was expecting.

Bayonetta and Alan Wake don't belong in that list!

It is unfounate that you disliked Link's Crossbow Training. It is not Black Ops or Goldeneye certainly, but I found it to be quite enjoyable.

I did not play Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, but your impressions of it are consistent with others who have played it. I hope your gaming has been better of late.

I bought Link's Crossbow Training when it was $0.99 at Gamestop. Fantastic game. Couldn't believe how good it was for so little money.

GTA IV was awesome. The trilogy of PS2 had absolutely no substance. The girlfriend thing sucked and mini games blew but the story was so awesome.

The Ps2 GTA games had no substance? Seriously? San Andreas had a ton of side-quests, the stats system that you could level up by biking, swimming, working out at the gym, etc. SA's map was still twice as big as GTA IV. SA didn't have painfully slow and sluggish driving controls, and SA also didn't force you to do the same monotonous mini-games over and over to keep your friends "respect" level up just so you could get the "benefits" for it.

GTA IV was just a garbage game.

substance- solid or meaningful quality

No, they had no substance. All of those are completely meaningless things. The story was generic garbage and the game played like the fantasy of a demented child. GTA IV introduced a (quality) story driven game that was incredibly fun. Mini games also weren't forced in GTA IV, don't know where you got that.
