I honestly prefer a soundtrack download to a CD. The CD would just get ripped to my computer and never used again, anyway.

Plus, with a download you can give people the uncompressed original files, and let them convert them to a lossier format if they want.

I expected a game I would enjoy, I was dissappoint.

Another reason people rush to get the collector's editions is sometimes they really are limited and if you miss the chance you won't get it again. Sure, most of them come back in stock but no one wants to skip the one that truly is never sold again.

Interesting that EA has the lion's share of these "worst CE" entries.

No it's not like the lied. The size of the book is what I think has people disappointed. They didn't really specify the size of the book, and every picture of it was misleading. I knew what I was getting though, and as I pointed out in my first post I know that I got $20 of merchandise, it just wasn't the quality I quite expected.

Haven't really gotten many, but of the few I did get, Mass Effect 2 takes the cake. First off, the game comes in a crappy steelbook with no disc release buttons. You have to pry the discs out and pray that they don't break. I ended up buying a cheap, empty Mass Effect 2 regular edition case to use instead so I don't fears snapping the discs in half trying to take them out anymore. Then you get an artbook. Whoopee! Flipped through it once, never looked at it again. Same with the making of DVD. I think that's about it in terms of stuff it comes with. The only good thing I got out of it was the in-game Collector assault rifle. Yeah, that's it. An in-game item was the only good thing about the ME2 Collector's Edition. And the ME3 one is basically the same crap again, so this time, I skipped it and went for the regular version.

Yeah, you could say that it was advertised properly and thus I shouldn't complain, but you asked what my most disappointing CE was and I gave you an answer. I really think EA missed the point of a CE anyway. It's supposed to have collectibles, something you can show off. What am I supposed to do with ME2, launch the game and show people my awesome gun? No thanks. At least with LBP2 I have a little Sackboy plush and Duke Nukem Forever (CE of that was a gift) has a small Duke bust. I can't even use the now-empty steelcase as a "look at this stuff" shelf item because it's just got a boring pic of Shepard on one side and a boring pic of a Collector on the other. Snore.

Skyward Sword with the gold remote wasn't a CE, it was a bundle of the game and a controller. And if you had a broken controller you should have contacted Nintendo to get it replaced. I never understand this nonsense people pull. "I got a broken one so it sucks!" No, you suck; nothing in this world is going to have a 0% failure rate, you might be unlucky and get one of the bad ones now and then. So stop whining and get it repaired or replaced you ninny. You can complain about the low quality if your replacement is also broken or breaks quickly, but getting a single bad unit means nothing.

I would have to say the RE5 collecters edition was. It came with a making of dvd (that was super short) a ugly steelbook and a cheap necklace and a baf that would most likely rop if you put a small book in.

I'll get back to it I'm sure, I'm playing through ME1 again now that I have a 360, I'll probably enjoy it and want to carry Commander Elayne Shepard all the way through the story.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Dark souls CE. Granted it was a free upgrade for the preorders but later they resold it here on amazon for the regular price.

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Special Edition

Bought it at Wal-Mart. I just happened to be there and I had the money so I said, "what the hey?" $69.99 Special Steel Case, DLC Code for 2 extra characters, Redemption code for Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, & Exclusive Comic Book Tie-In to the game. Bought it, took it home, comic Book and both redemption codes were missing. Wal-Mart wouldn't take it back had to contact Capcom to get missing stuff. Got codes like a week later, never received the comic book. On top of that the game sucked. Never buying another game from Wal-Mart and it will be a very, very long while before I buy another Capcom product as well.
