    Mortal Online - Steel Case (client was outdated by the time I got it)

    So much potential yet fell so sort of what it should have been.

    I'm phrasing my reply both with respect to money wasted and sheer disssapointment (which is actually worse)

     

    1) SWTOR: Collector edition

    Got less than 2 months out of this.

    2) GW2.  Actually spent money in the cash shop for crafting items *facepalm*

    Couldn't hit max level :(

    3) WAR / AoC 

    Again, couldn't hit max level.

     

     

    Pleasant surprises: Rift (got 6+ months), LOTRO (got 1 year).

    I WOULD say Final Fantasy XIV, but I'm actually looking forward to A Realm Reborn, so the big "Craaaaaap-tastic" prize would have to go to Diablo III.

     

    It was apparent all too soon why they only let you complete the first part of Act 1 during Beta.

     

    At least the talented folks that split Blizzard to make Torchlight and TL 2 made up for it-- AND for a fraction of the price.

    Morrowind was 10 times the game Oblivion was.

     

    Worst MMO Buy: Mortal & Darkfall

    Awwwww someone said your "old school and nostalgic" game is worse than it's sequel? Yeah, if you compare the amount of content that Oblivion has to Morrowind, it is a much better game. Oblivion is almost undeniably better, you're only saying it's worse because you're comparing it to how good Morrowind was FOR THE TIME PERIOD. You are a complete moron who has no idea how to judge a game by it's objective quality. But hey, listing no reasons of why Morrowind is better does a good job of proving my point that you're a nostalgia gaming retard.

    A game with the potential to tap into the GTA fan base if only it was done decently.Instead you got two shitty combat areas and a social area. AFK/macroers ruined match making. Hacks/cheats made it suck(tho not as many as you see in other pc shooters).  It would have been a lot better to just have a huge city map and let players do their thing but instead the game sucked,Its company went bankrupt,and now its a pay to win piece of shit.

    We wont mention balance and how retardedly easy it was for Enforcers to win against Criminals using Less than Lethal over-powered weapons.

    Spent over $500 on World of Tanks in less than a years time... not really worth it.
  • casual187casual187 omaha, NEPosts: 32Member
    FF XIV no ifs ands or buts about it.

    I think I pretty much gave up on that game entirely when I realized that the only permanent weapons were ones you had to buy with real money. It had a lot of potential to be awesome, kind of like GTA (like you said). Did you actually spend money on it or do you just regret playing it?

  • CultOfXtcCultOfXtc nottinghamPosts: 378Member

    Probably

    GW2

    Rift

    WAR

    Managed to dodge SWTOR, pre-order Collectors Deition and played beta.  Cancelled.

     

    Best purchase:

    TSW by far! :D

    GW2. Bought it 2 months ago and haven't even ripped off the plastic outside the box yet.
  • BrianshoBriansho Woodbridge, VAPosts: 4,779Member Uncommon
    Diablo III - impulse purchase hoping it was going to be a good game. Waited to late to get a refund.

    Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!

    I played it a lot pre-GamesFirst.. It was a nice game but had issues that kept it from really turning a profit. I installed it when it became Free to play and seen guns fullly modded in the cash shop for $60 and said screw it and left. Plus when G1 took over they got rid of chase missions(driving) and didnt really add anything worth even playing. Same lame districts(back when i quit at least). Also didnt like the fact that during the switch from the original company to G1 i lost all the cars and crap i had.

    To answer the question-- Nope. No money spent in Cash shop. Spent the full price on the game plus every month sub it had while the game was live(which wasnt that long)

    I purchased both Warhammer Online CE and Age of Conan CE, but I was very hyped for both games.  I do feel I played both games enough that it was "worth it", even though the CE themselves were just eh at best.  Still if I could go back in time I'd ahve just bought the regular copies.

    My worst is buying the SWToR CE, after the Warhammer/AoC debacle I decided to be very very careful about buying any game at all, much less a CE.  But with SWToR I had a big pile of friends ready to play it, had tested it out some, really had a ton of fun in the early levels, figured that would carry the whole way through..oops.  Only played about 3-4 months and while I really enjoyed the game, the CE wasn't worth buying.  Had I bought the normal game I'd have felt like I got my $$ worth for sure.  But as a CE, not so much, ah well.

    With the concurance of everyone else here, the SWTOR is my worst purchase.  DDO was a close second, because I couldn't get more than 5 hours played into it.
  • bizoux86bizoux86 Bangor, PAPosts: 85Member

    I would say SW:TOR only because the game was broken in so many ways at its release - biggest disappointment    = (

    After my husband and I bought into the hype and pre-purchased 2 copies!  Learned to always only buy one copy of a game when trying it out!

    Other than that I bought many games that I have not continued to play, but I wouldn't say I regret buying them. Those games gave me greater insight as to the types of games I want to play.

    Final Fantasy XIV for sure.  Didn't finish out the first month.  Couldn't even be bothered to login once it was free while they tried to fix it.

     

    I did appreciate the apology they issued - still not enough to get me to try that again.

    I was trying to remember the name of that.  I remember putting in that I was pre-order #83 in my sig.   Damn did I get rid of that fast.

  • movindudemovindude santa barbara, CAPosts: 122Member

    Yes, War Z big time right after this site had it ass the top recommended game with a 8.5 or so rating.

    Warhammer Online Collectors Ed, I let my love of Warhammer drive me to it.  What a waste.
  • SebaliSebali Staten Island, NYPosts: 392Member Uncommon
    Gw2 was my shortest stint in a mmo ever at around 4 hours. That would have to be mine
  • buzzzxbuzzzx L.A., CAPosts: 41Member Common
    I'd say every game I bought except Everquest.
  • NC-JohnNC-John burlington, WIPosts: 113Member

    I Regret none of them, The many MMOs cited all provided me with a education and they refined my resolve to push for better games to be made with more innovation. of course it's just a dream a fanatsy of hope, but you never know if we keep demanding games to be fun, someday they might make one fun.

  • Jagsman32Jagsman32 Atlanta, GAPosts: 109Member

    SW: ToR

    Rift

    Fallen Earth

    Hellgate: London

    Mortal Online

    Xsyon

     

    The last two I dont mind personally because I knew they were going to be bad when I purchased them and was looking at more like an investment. The first 4 were just bad decisions.
