I've made some really bad purchases. Mostly not games though.
The funny thing is the worst game purchases I have made I have pretty much long forgotten. Maybe I am an optimist that way, I forget the bad games I play and remember the good! Wish I could do that with some of my other *cough* social *cough* experiences.

If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.
Anything after EQ.
Originally posted by itbewilly Originally posted by Aralvar Originally posted by itbewilly All Points Bulletin 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.
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?
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)
Wow, now I'm glad that I only play F2P mmorpgs (for the time being, haven't found one I wanted to pay for yet)..
My negative experiences with "STEAM" and their total lack of customer support ,would put them at the top of an all too long list of close contenders for the top spot of companys to avoid.
(no I don't play any mmog atm if that gives you a clue about my feelings for the current mmog genre)
There is only one purchase that I look back on and wish I didn't make, well actually a collection of purchases for one game and that game is:
Hellgate: London - Collector's Edition and Lifetime Sub (I also purchased the hunter statue but I still like it.)
Because flying a Minmatar ship is like going down a flight of stairs on an office chair while firing an Uzi.

Originally posted by Azzataky Well, without a doubt, World of Warcraft Battlechest for me and my girlfriend. Couple of her friends played the game, she wanted to try it, I said, ok, why not. Never again. I don't think there is a game I regret buying as this one. Especialy with monthly fee.
Umm dude, your thinking wow online, not battlechest as battlechest was the rpg versions of the game beforew wow went online and there was no monthly fee.
Guild Wars 1
I had heard so many good things about it from various people and never took the time to research it myself.

"Spent over $500 on World of Tanks in less than a years time... not really worth it."
- no wonder that f2p games get more popular for the game industry if a lower percentage invests higher amounts
