I'll say Neverdead. Bought it for $5.99 with shipping included and still hated it. I can enjoy a lot of games, especially when they're cheap and I have very low expectations, but this game has some of the worst level design and overall game design imaginable. Annoying core mechanic (decapitation), respawning enemies (until you destroy sacks littered around environments), lousy level layout, mediocre controls, very annoying and repetitive music, awful writing and voice acting, and it doesn't end there. This game truly came out of the pit of Hell.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Also I don't regret buying Tokyo Jungle but I'd probably be happier if I had spent less on it.

Bioshock 2 and Bully: SE were both very good games.

I still need to play more Tokyo Jungle.

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour (Android) - Cost me $7, and it was an utter waste. The presentation values were phenomenal, but the game is otherwise unplayable. Horrible, and I mean *horrible* controls. Aiming and firing is extremely sloppy, and at least on my phone, I end up covering half the screen with my fingers in order to control it. If I ever get that MOGA controller I may give it another go, but without that it sucks bad.

Dream Trigger 3D (3DS) - Great 3D effects, but frustratingly difficult and odd, hand-cramping controls.

Bionic Commando. Although, I think it was more like $13. Turrible swinging mechanics, subpar shooting, and a plot twist that pooped all over the original storyline made for my biggest gaming regret of this generation. At least the soundtrack was great.

Pictionary Ultimate Edition. It requires friends and I don't have any. All I have is this uDraw tablet...

I gave it a try but I hated the hacking & the shooting was really off

Bulletstorm. Bought it for like $7.99, played it once and wasn't really a fan. Rage was kind of the same way, but I played about five hours before deciding it wasn't going to get much better. I suppose the later experience was worth the $5 I paid for it, though. At least I didn't buy it on release day.

Aw, I liked that one. I only paid a buck for it though, so maybe that had something to do with it?

Loved that game. Felt like a spiritual successor to a lot of what made the first Mass Effect great, warts and all, with a spy twist. Something the sequels were lacking.

Dream Trigger 3D looked like a game I'd like, then I played it. What an annoying and odd game.

I loved Rearmed which was made by the same studio. I don't know what happened. Even if I had gotten it for free I'd feel the same way. It wasn't so much that I thought it was a waste of money as it was I found it offensive as a fan of the IP.

I remember that game got a bunch of hype for being similar to the old Bushido Blade fighting games, one-hit kills and all. I tried the demo but didn't find it all that fun to play.

The shooting felt really weird to me too. And the movement was awkward. I did like the dialogue choices, but didnt make it very far into this game. I should probably just sell it.

I enjoyed the BC reboot the first time I played it. It had some really frustrating moments, which is why the subsequent playthroughs weren't as enjoyable. The ending scene was pretty visually stunning.

Ah, yeah, I could see that then. I didn't have any stock in the history of the games. I could never get into the old ones. I think this may be why we have different takes on it, heh.
