    Long-term worst ever purchase was Aion.  Most recent is Miner Wars 2081.

    Vanguard at full original price.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Wasted $750 and 4 years of my life on Eve Online. Took a while but I eventually came to my senses   :)

    Dark and Light. I pre-ordered to get into the Settlers of Ganareth test. Regretted it the minute I set foot in game.

    I didn't buy WOW at release. Then after a week or so I caved to peer pressure since all of my DAOC guild had switched and bought it. I didn't last 2 weeks. Even RvRing on a mostly dead server was more fun than WOW's kill 10 rats solo gameplay.

    GW2....I played 2 hours and stopped...I can't get myself trying again, I really can't.

    RF Online

    I was actually really looking forward to this....I lasted twenty minutes and never bothered again.

    That was the last time I got hyped uncondtionally over big robots and a flashy cinematic.

    What a bad day that was..

    This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

    Mortal Online

     

    Cost $75 for the standard box version of the game.  They never sent out functioning release discs to everyone that bought it.  2.5 years after release people (and these are their "fans")  argue that it's too early to market the game because it's "not ready" yet.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    Champions Online. It was an impulse buy, as I saw it on the shelf at Wal-Mart. I thought, "Cool! Champions Role-Playing Game in an MMO!"

    It was nothing like Champions.

    I was also playing City of Heroes at the time and Champions was barely a mere shadow of CoH.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    DDO for me, bought on recommendation from friends and it totally wasn't the game for me.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Rift (when it first came out).  I did have a little bit of fun there but not worth what I paid.  I have more fun in free to play games so I felt cheated.  I enjoyed Rift's, well, rifts.  Until they got gimped - high levels were not allowed in low level rifts.  I have always hated the separation of high levels from low levels.  I wanted to show off in front of newbs.  Looking at it from the other coin side, I always enjoyed it when high levels show off for me.  In everything except getting ganked (world PvP sucks).

    One month sub of MO was 15 Euro down the drain. I stopped playing before the sub ended (unsubbed after about 2 weeks). I even supported this game massively at first! Apologize to everyone who listened to me. OTOH I never played WoW and now have a blast with Vanguard (and not paying anything). xD

    I don't know where to start. I've bought soooooooooo many games on steam that I have never even played. Of the 500-600 games I have there I think I have plaed only 20 :D Although I've bought some of them at a crazy cheap price so even if I decide to play them in the future would be worth it as I doubt they will get any cheaper down the line.

    SWTOR was probably my best purchase. Why? I quickly knew that this game was going to suck. Thus, I sold the CE for almost double what I paid for it just after launch.

     

    Diablo 3 CE was the worst purchase.

  • AdamantineAdamantine NowherePosts: 3,514Member Common
    My worst purchase was GW1. I was completely bored out of my mind after 3 days. You dont meet anyone ever except in cities, the quests are generic, the crafting system unbelievably primitive, the combat system was trivialistic and monotonous. Good thing ? Well graphically it looked nice. And that was all.
  • ZzadZzad Palma de MallorcaPosts: 1,332Member Uncommon

    For me it was SWTOR sadly :(

    Didn´t even make it till level cap...not even when it went FTP....

    I think its pretty simple really. Just wait a bit after release and check reactions of the players. ;-)

    The only time when this recipe failed for me was Guild Wars.

    But worked like a charm, for example, for Vanguard. Which I still play. Or Age of Conan. Which I never ever touched. :-D
