Worst ever purchases?



  • NachurNachur Phoenix, AZPosts: 14Member Uncommon

    Champions lifetime sub. I enjoyed playing COH for a month each time a new issue came out, and thought why not have access to the game any time I want.

    Gamer logic through rose-colored glasses.

    Star Trek Online - Played CO and knew it was not that great... Was in the STO Beta and knew it pretty much sucked balls... Still preordered the game hoping it would get better... Easily the stupidest game purchase I've ever made and the absolute last time I will ever preorder a MMO.

    Guild Wars 2, bought copy for myself and my girlfriend.

    Worst purchase ever and this is coming from a TSW Lifetimer.

     I'm glad I didn't buy this one.....I could see why you'd be upset...That was a terrible game.

    I do a lot of research and make my own decisions,but have to admit that Warhammer got me. By far the worst purchase I ever made. 

    Currently Playing: Star Wars The Old Republic

    Age of Conan I guess. Probably because it was the first MMO where I thought to myself... this isn't even close to being done.

    Enter a whole new realm of challenge and adventure.

    My worst purchase was the one-year subscription to Rift.  I bought it May 15 and haven't played much since September/October.  What a waste for a game I won't even have access to when the sub expires.  bleh
    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.

    Im one of those people who buys CEs because I actually collect them. The SWTOR CE IMO is a fantastic CE but the game isnt. The only mmo I regret buying is TERA and Final Fantasy.

    None, and I have played a few. I have a rule about games. If i get a $1 per hour, its a good buy,

    I thought I knew the game after closed betas, open beta and launch. But I was wrong.

    The only game/xpac I've bought that I wish I hadn't is Mist's of Pandaria.I only played it a little for a couple month's.My annual pass ran out and realized I'm done with WoW.Just tired of that game and better option's are abound.

    Some day I'm going to put a sword through your eye and out the back of your skull!

    Guild Wars 2 for me.


    I never had the opportunity to Beta it so I didnt know what to expect.

    Horrible game IMO.


    The one thing I will give them credit for is they gave me my money back and they never closed my account. Sadly I have played maybe 1 hour since initial release and them giving me a refund.


    I just cant make myself play.

    Everything after 2007.

    Hmm.. Maybe it's the fault of this site..

    Warhammer, i was forced to quit the game due to bad performance and went back to wow in less then a week.

    For MMOs, would be Hellgate: London lifetime sub. Not because the game was bad (it wasn't) but because of the gross mismanagement and outright lies of Roper & co. I still fully intend to take my $120 back out of Roper's hide should I run across that piece of trash someday.

    For regular games, would have to be Red Faction: Armageddon. The game is a huge step back from the previous installment, and was in fact so bad it managed to kill off the franchise. It still blows my mind how they could regress from an open world game with damn near fully destructible environments to a linear, level based shooter confined to claustrophobic caves.

    MMO: Aion or Vanguard SoH ( I actually played vanguard for close to year hoping they would fix the bugs, but here we are years later with a half assed F2P model and the same glitches that have plagued the game since release)

    Single Player: Probably Diablo 3 or Demigod. Diablo 3 doesn't even really have an online component other than trying to log in, and Demigod is probably the worst MOBA I have ever seen.

    Currently Playing: ESO and FFXIV
    Have played: You name it

    For me my worst purchase has to be Gothic of the most shocking gothic games i have fact its not even worthy of that  title.the game itself looks fantastic..but it lacked just about everything that should be in a gothic game.and has if that was'nt bad enough i was stupid enough to buy the expansion which was the biggest rip off in gaming took me 3 hrs to complete the expansion..and it  was'nt even linked to the main game.jesus i,m one dumb MF

    I keep going back to play Swtor and enjoy it so won't say it was a waste.


    My worse purchase was GW2. I bought into the hype, bought it, played beta and never even played at launch. It was entirely the exact opposite direction I wanted in an mmo. A massive world of public quests and watered down classes turned out to be the ultimate themepark and not the other way around.


    The funny thing about Swtor is that with all it's faults it is still fun. As with most mmo's these days though I expect to take long breaks from it from time to time. I still await the so called sandbox games around the corner. Sadly though I am burned out on fantasy and see no good sci-fi alternative atm.

    You stay sassy!

    WWII Online.  Was fun when first came out but all the broken promises I regret spending any money on it in the end.
