So.... What game did you buy this year that was the biggest waste of money?

For me... its Spore. I still haven't even played the tribal phase.

Conan online and that bf2 like game that you download from steam.

Spore was ok. I lost interest in the space part of the game. Wasn't a waste for me since my brother gave me his copy when he was done with it. Since it was free I was a lot more forgiving of the game. :D

I never play full price for games, except for Warhead{but it was half the price of a full game, and I wanted it for bench marking}.

I buy them new off ebay for $35 delivered vs $70-$90 instore.

Spore here too. Probably is ALL the review and initial impressions were brilliant. So you HAD to get it. Turns out it was just ok the first time and not really any fun the second. It now sits on my floor uninstalled.

Other than that I haven't had many wastes of money. Best value of the year would be The Sims 2: Apartment Life.

Although I liked it, I would have to say Crysis. I bought it with a good PC, only to have to upgrade it even more. After completing it, it was in no way worth spending that amount of money on a PC for. ****ing PC gaming... I guess it's to be expected.

That has to be Far Cry 2 so far..

spore without a doubt, spending hours unlocking all the new bits and evolving the creature as per the aim of the game only to find they don't have a bit of benefit or use in the next stage! how flawed is that!

Tie for Spore, Age of Conan, and Warhammer Online.

This would work well as a poll - I think Spore is going to be a popular one. :p

i loved the first bit of spore and the second age, until it dawned on me how mis-designed it was. The tribal stage was just cringeworthy yet some stages just felt too easy and rushed and just as your getting into it its time to move on - whether you like it or not - with no benefit to hang around in that stage.

Probably the worst game this year I bought was Crysis Warhead. Crysis is an ok game, but I guess where the gameplay is a little bland for me and it rapes my PC, I just don't wanna finish it. Maybe during Christmas I'll finish it.

Gears of War PC. Yeah, it's from Nov 2007, but I bought it in Feb 08.

far cry 2

Crysis Warhead. Yea it was only $30, but the campaign was far too short, and the multiplayer isn't much fun.

10-29-08, 04:54 PM
Crysis and GRID.

10-29-08, 05:06 PM
The Movies.

No... I'm serious. I bought it earlier this year. :o

Despite my poor choice in "The Movies", I can't help but laugh at all of you who bought Spore. It looked absolutely ridiculous and even with the "rave reviews" on it, It still looked and WAS terrible. :lol:

10-29-08, 05:50 PM
Spore. I'm embarassed I bought it.

10-29-08, 05:57 PM
Metal Gear Solid 4 - my a mile!

Metal Gear Solid was my favorite game of the year thus far.....

10-29-08, 08:43 PM
Spore. $50 down the tubes.

10-29-08, 08:53 PM
Spore, Stalker, and Far Cry 2. Three worst titles of the year.

stalker was as bad as spore? dont know if i can believe that........I know stalker is very taxing on good machines though......

10-29-08, 09:11 PM
The Movies.

No... I'm serious. I bought it earlier this year. :o

That was a good game I thought. I've never played it though... ::(:

I didn't buy spore because I knew my 2 minute attention span would get me bored in 1 minute.

I got World In Conflict this year, played it about 4 missions, never been back didn't liike it much at all. Rainbow Six Vegas 1 offered me more gameplay but I just about hated every second.

I haven't purchased any games this year that i haven't liked. I've bought games for my g/f that i would never play, but i like them because she leaves me in peace so i can play other games.
