I've had a good run this year with games.
The only game I wasted money on which I quit after 2 weeks was Diablo 3.
Now there was a game that was hyped beyond everything and turned out to be worse than indie games on Steam. Did D3 really take that many years to develop?
Originally posted by Xiaoki [ ... ] Seriously, MMO developers, if you make an MMO that can be max leveled in 2 weeks PLEASE put more effort into the endgame.
Oh, that's adorable. You still think playing MMOs is only about maxing your level and getting to endgame? Poor guy.
1) Diablo 3 (bad game overall)
2) TERA (I couldn't stand looking at the graphics anymore. And combat felt painfully slow and dull)
3) EVE Online resub (1 month, didn't play once xD)
Originally posted by Unojc For me it would be.... - BF3 - D3 - GW2 Again just my opinion with my playstyle.
Swtor (the month of january's sub fee)
Only two titles. I refrained from preordering TSW because of my experiences with AoC, so figured waiting was better. By now its obviously not going great number wise, so that seemed like it was a good choice. I tried Tera in beta but didnt think it was worth a sub, and I didnt really get excited for the new rift expansion either.
Overall I let my past dissapointments affect how many new games I was willing to try out past beta.- However GW2 was a massive one, all by itself.
The only other game I purchased besides GW2 this year was Borderlands 2, which Im actually very satisfied with.
In 2013 Im hoping to enjoy Elder scrolls (will have to decide based on beta feedback or experience) and looking forward to Titan.

Same here! The graphics always egg me in, but once I'm in and see the spreadsheets, I abandon ship ASAP. One day I'll learn.
I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.
always lovely when people buy games "just because they are supposed" to be cool.
i bought diablo3, gw2, TSW, MoP and others, and i did NOT waste my money on them.
i enjoyed em all for some time, but sooner or later, you move on.
did you guys buy single player games? how many hours did you spend on em? did you waste your money there too?
i'd say i spend more hours in all of those games than you usualy spend in single player games (well, assassin's creed might be the exception here. hehe).
and i am actually still playing gw2 and MoP ^^
maybe you heard this line before "it's not you, it's... shit yea it's you."
"I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up! Not me!"
SWTOR - technically last year but about a year ago.
SWTOR (once i got to lvl 50)
D3 (pointless repetitive game)
TSW (too buggy for my computer and ended up sucking anyways)
The Witcher 2..... (wouldnt work on my computer)
BUT i find my money well spent on my Rift subscription and Storm Legion, Im really liking it.
D3 is the only game I purchased that really feels like a "waste." I spent enough time playing SWTOR and GW2 to keep them off such a list, but I don't really play either one NOW, so.....take that for what it's worth. D3 I think I played for all of a week. I hated that game. It just made me miss D2 LoD online and did nothing to restore equivalent or better play than D2. I was grossly disappointed.
I don't know if I would add MoP to this list or not. I just bought it yesterday, so at this moment it still seems good. Time will tell, but I'm sure after I have my main to 90 and a panda somewhere in the leveling process....I'll probably be done with it again for a while. That seems to be my pattern with WoW expansions. I have 2 85s and a lot of level 80s that I never got in the mood to level. Who wants to repeat the same stuff over and over and over. I'm tired of that.

Yes I bought three copies for my other 2 family members.
SWTOR (was ok up to lvl 20...)
Mists of Pandaria + sub (my brains were prolly somewhere else at this point)
XCOM (nothing like the old xcom, which is immensely more fun than the new crap)
GW2No dynamic in dynamic, no working scaling, just backslash panic changes to instance system (token grind), lieing developes, lack of visual gear variety, again average dx9 game client with poor performance and lack of the right sliders for adjustments. Poor class design, no trinity, no healers yet water eles and guardians actually healing against boss damage.
I'm still looking for that overrun village with burned out houses and the flame legion invasion monsters patrouling the perimeters. (Reality: npcs dead /faded out, everything looks the same, 5 flame legion npcs spawn into my face for the next 3 minutes)
LOTRO ROHAN LegendaryJust awfull. So litte so much money.
I still like my tsw, like my tera.
Originally posted by ShakyMo Hmm don't agree with you on gw2 having bad performance. The engine is good, there ate other problems with the game but not the engine. Poor engine would be Swtor or Aoc. Rift, war and wow also but to a lesser degree than swtor
Poor engine are you basing this off looks/visuals? In all honesty your not going to come across a more polished engine than WoW. They have had 8 years to polish it for crying out loud. Big difference from the way things look and how the engine is designed/works.
"It has potential"-Second most used phrase on existence"It sucks"-Most used phrase on existence
Wasted money and time on :
Left 4 Dead
Left 4 Dead 2
all ended with exe errors after updates with NO fix.
Translation Valve games BLOW.

Shh...be careful or the gw2 hate police will come to your house

The performance isn't great, it's cpu bound and bottlenecked through forcing multiple calculation through a sotware shader. Overused Dx9 with a brute force attempt to make it work. The according sliders to lessen the load on these are missing too.
In fact when they have to completly remove whole effects just to get the performance to acceptable levels it says it all. This game should never have release with just a dx9 client.
The (lacking) visual fidelity compared to the requirements make bad performance as an result. It may run fluid on my i7-3930k @ 4.5ghz, doesn't mean it has good performance. Sure it's not swtor's level of failure.
Just Dance 3.
Oh, you meant MMO's? None, there's something good about every one of them to me, yes...even SWTOR. And I kinda hate SWTOR.
I know it's hard to believe people don't like your game of choice, but even with 400 hours played I think it was a waste of money.
MMOs are supposed to last a long time, GW2 lasted a month and that was with me trying every way possible to enjoy it, hence the 400 hours played.
GW2 - biggest MMO disappointment since Warhammer online
D3 - I enjoyed it for about a month but compared to D2 that lasted 2-3 years it's a huge letdown.
DAoC - Excalibur & Camlann
I paid the $199 for TSW lifetime gladly (and didn't have to pay anything for the game). I still play it and they have new content constantly coming through.
D3 was a terrible waste of money. Biggest disappointment of the year, BY FAR.
GW2 was a waste - I was hoping for something new and got the same old thing in a camoflage package.
MoP is a decent expansion, but truthfully, I just couldn't get back into the game. I'm over it. So, that's a waste too.
