Street Fighter X Tekken is in contention for the worst 2D fighter Capcom has ever made. Thank goodness Aris Bakhtanians got me to cancel my preorder by being a jackass on Cross Assault.

Also, UFC Undisputed 2010, UFC Undisputed 3... Thought maybe after 2 years they would of made huge upgrades... So glad the EA is taking over the UFC games in the future. Madden 2012 was a let down for me too, Haven't bought Madden in a long time... Feels like the same game I used to play on ps2... Wasn't happy, Sold it to my brother half price a week after it came out.

I too bought the MW3 Hardened Edition. I did get bored with COD a lot faster than usual this year, but I still play, So I guess I can't say I regret buying it all together. I definitely regret not just getting the standard edition though... I hate most of the DLC, and usually turn it off when I play. Poor design on a lot of these maps, Won't be renewing my COD Elite subscription this year even If I do buy Black Ops 2...

Ghost Recon Future Soldier...thought the online would be fun and refreshing but I was wrong...Decent campaign though.

Starhawk: Looked fun, felt too clunky and just didn't draw me in.

Unit 13 for vita....ugh whyd i buy you digital, now i cant trade you in :(

Probably gonna get hate for this one but Arkham City as well...Just didn't do it for me. I really don't understand the hype behind it.

AC:Revelations: I loved AC1 2 and Brotherhood but Revelations just wasn't as good simply put. Not awful. but not worth $60. The tower defense mini game was atrocious too...

Clearly your childhood was wasted not wanting to be Batman.

Blue Dragon. Played through the first cd and realised that it wasnt the game for me. Plus hearing "Nothing." over and over got to me.

Premonition - I'm a fan of survival horror games, but I couldn't take this one serious.

crimson alliance is probably the worst for an arcade game. worst full retail game would either be mw3 or starhawk.

Shadowgate 64: Trials of the Four Towers for the N64.


I am an RPG fan and I thought this was the answer to my prayers. I had been yearning for a great RPG experience on the N64. Instead, all I got were some annoying puzzles and a bland story with no battling.

Eternal Sonata... And more than anything that has to do with disappointment. I'd bought the 360 because that was where the JRPGs were going at the time (this was pretty early on), and I was SO excited for this game. I played the demo probably twenty times and was just super excited. And then I got the game and it was such a massive disappointment.

A friend of mine said the game looks good, but the story wasn't all that great and that the game was really short. He said he beat it in 2 sittings.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

Horrible game, took it back in less than 48 hours.

badguy says:
its not a bad game but its the one I had the worst experience with ever, performance wise. I was really excited to play it before it was released but afterwards it became a nightmare and has become THE ONLY game i've ever gotten rid of.

"looks" good in some ways. The graphics themselves were really very pretty and the character design was interesting, but the damned motion capture was awful. There were a lot of JRPGs this last gen that had what I call "Mascott Mocap." All the characters move about like a sports mascott with the exagerated movements of their over-large heads, and the general motions otherwise. It was awful.

I heard that about Future Soldier. Looked promising but I guess it fell short.

I agree about Unit 13. It's fun at first, but with no actual story or character developing I fell no need to keep playing the missions. I bought the physical copy so I'll probably trade it in at some point.

I also agree with Arkham City. I just can't get into it. But I did like AC: Revelations. Wasn't as good as it's predecessors but I got it as a gift so it was free and the hook blade zip lines were cool new features. Will you be getting AC3: Liberation for the Vita?

That's a tough one to swallow, although I'm sure there is a day 1 $60 Duke Nukem Forever buyer in here.

Never mind. Some poor sucker admitted to buying the Balls of Steel edition...

Movie Monkey says:
Jurassic Park: The game. I love the movies, and so when I saw the digital copy for only $20, I jumped at it. The game was awful in so many ways, and now since I bought the digital copy I can't just resell the game (probably only get a couple bucks anyway).

Kid Icarus - I just can't get over the clunky controls.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope - It's just so long and boring.

Ugh. The Last Hope was awful for many of the same reasons as Eternal Sonata. More than anything, though, I wanted to throw Welch unprotected into the cold vacuum of space and watch her suffocate to death. Hated her.

Most recently, Twisted Metal and Max Payne 3. Bought both at full price and pretty much hate them both.

So, if you regretted buying FFXIII, why the #$(& did you buy FFXIII-2? Did you get them both at the same time?
