Default Biggest Waste of Money Game of 2008

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.

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.

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.

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.
