Worst ever purchases?

    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.

    I bought gPotatoes once.  /headkeyboard

    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.

    Does it have to be an MMORPG? Then Archlord probably. Or maybe City of Heroes (not my type of game). But if it wasn't an MMORPG then I would have to say probably 90% of my steam games, I buy things when they go on sale that are super cheap and never end up playing them.

    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)..

    Rift.  I played it less than any other B2P/P2P game I've bought, ever.  It was just so generic.

     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)

    GW1 and GW2.  I don't know  why I keep buying the games.  The world doesn't immerse me and I'm not all that hardcore with PvP.

    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.)

    Hellgate London

    Fury

    WAR

    Final Fantasy Online Never even opened that box = (

    Trials of Atlantis for DAOC. Just a waste of money. Should of read up on what it was about more. It made RvR and most dungeons boring as people were too busy doing the same thing over and over and over again to unlock pieces to get stupid items. Ill admit I spent sometime getting some, but soon realized that I was no longer playing a game so much as just following a pattern to achieve a goal.

    Most say SWTOR but I actually enjoyed the PVE aspect. The stories were amazing and left me actively immersed. However the end-game made me want to shoot my PC lol. My worst ever purchase is probably Darkfall.

    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.

    Played: Lineage 2,Guild Wars 1 and 2, Age of Conan, Ragnarok Online, LOTRO, World of Warcraft, League of Legends, EvE online
    Tried: KAL Online, Face of Mankind, ROSE online
    Playing: CS:GO

    My worst purchase but I don't really regret it was Warhammer Online as it was only £5 but I just had to see what all the fuss was about and I hated it, thought it was the worst MMO I'd every played, still do, and my Shadow Warrior was the most useless class. Luckily I've got into beta of quite a few games that has allowed me to decide if a game is worth a purchase, Rift being the worst of the beta's, generic is an understatement. I am quite forgiving about games though, played FFXIV and Darkfall at release got my monies worth but they were unfinished and tedious respectively but interesting concepts none the less and that eased the pain somewhat.

    * Tabula Rasa 

    * SWTOR

    * Lineage 2

    *  RFO/RF Online

    *  F2P genre

     

     

    "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

    Brink

    Space Marine

    Dawn of War II + Expansions
