    +1 on that.

    But I got a refund, I can't complain.

    So I'll pick SWTOR, full box price at launch. Ouch.

    Paying for a second month of SWTOR :-/

    Star Wars Galaxies was such a letdown.  Never again will I pre-order a game without actually playing it first.  Me and my friends burned a lot of money only to walk away after the first 30 days or so.  Such great promise, but needed another 6-9 months of work (not polish, work).

    Are you serious?

    SWG is one of the most revered (and perhaps imfamous in later years) MMO's of all time. A real MMO.

    I still rate that as the best MMO ever. Nothing gets near, so many years after... imho!

    For me, SWG is kind of hit or miss.  It was one of my favorites, yet it was bug ridden to hell and back.  I was one of the first commandos on my server and the devs forgot to spawn the material that weaponsmiths needed to make the commando weapons. After a few weeks when they finally put the resource in the game, the weapons were bugged and only did 1-2 points of damage.  Then there was the holo grind that absolutely ruined the game due to a poor implementaion of an OP class that didn't belong in the game's time period.  I do miss our Imp raids from Bestine to Anchorhead though.

    Yes there were bugs/mistakes, but every game since has had their fare share, many reapeated from what should be long learned lessons.

    SWG had a recipe for long term, often multiple subscribers, many continuing until the very end, in a period of online game virginity. We (or 'I') need a game that rewards long term commitment like SWG used to do, not the instant satisfaction of MMOs produced today.

    A game where you knew anybody worth knowing on the server, and that they were there - "come rain or shine". Because a real MMO is about the community.

    That they never have 3 uniquely different realms with classes, armor and architecture that stays true to the lore.

     

    That makes me sad.  Oh well - time to log in my carbon copy toon and fight my own mirror for a flag woot!

    Diablo 3, After Playing Diablo 2 for years i had high hopes for Diablo 3.. then the error 37's hit and once i was finally able to get in and play it I couldnt believe i had wasted the money. I went back a few months later and there was the RMAH and i was disappointed.. Blizzard had finally entered the world of Hypocrisy after attacking so many others for selling digital content for real money they turned around and did it themselves. Im already decided that Titan will be a waste of time.

    Played: UO, LotR, WoW, SWG, DDO, AoC, EVE, Warhammer, TF2, EQ2, SWTOR, TSW, CSS, KF, L4D, AoW, WoT

    Playing: The Secret World until Citadel of Sorcery goes into Alpha testing.

    Tired of: Linear quest games, dailies, and dumbed down games

    Anticipating:Citadel of Sorcery

    Many MMOs fit into this category.

    I got bored easily with SWG. Went back to it twice but still did not hold any long term interest for me. I have multiple accounts with EQ2. Had multiple ones in other games at times too like SB, AC and DAOC. I know many others who stayed with CoX till it went dark many with multiple accounts. Shadowbane the same. So for you it may be the perfect game but you for others it was not.

     

    And it is not revered by all. I am not even sure the majority. Oh and before you ask... yes I am serious.

    Diablo 3. Impulse buy then waited to late to get a refund. Still stings.

    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!

    GW2, hands down. What a pile of poo.

    Easily Guild Wars 2.  I was hyped up to get the game from a friend, we played it for two days then never touched it again...

     

    Such a waste of money, oh well.

    Biggest regret in the past 2 years, was purchasing games on an impulse, such as Diablo 3 and SWTOR, without reading about what I was expecting. I have made much smarter purchases since then, which also means fewer purchases..

    Yes, that's why I posted it. ( ' :

    Design-wise, pretty brilliant.  Implementation-wise, it was a mess from the word go.  Some of us consumers expect more for our money and don't reward manufacturers for bad products and service....  For us, the state of SWG upon release was simply unacceptable regardless of how good the ideas were.

    God of war 3.. Beat in in under 10 hours and spent $60 on it

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Gw2, pointless, boring.... regret.
  • KyleranKyleran Tampa, FLPosts: 19,994Member Uncommon

    I've enjoyed pretty much every title I've purchased, at least for a month or so.

    Perhaps my only regret is falling for the pre-order/multi-month discounts and bonus items for Rift and Tera, because in each case I paid for 6 month subs and only lasted 2 or 3 months in each.

    No more of that, strictly on a month to month basis from now on. (I still resub to EVE in 3 month blocks, but have never regretted that decision)

     

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

    The biggest regrets of last year speaking of videogame purchases were buying GW2, and paying the Collector's edition of Diablo 3 when it wasn't worth the price of a normal box. 

    My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

  • H0urg1assH0urg1ass Austin, TXPosts: 510Member Uncommon
    Actually, my biggest regret is from NOT buying a game.  There was an entire year where I didn't stay subbed to EVE Online and now I've lost that year of skill training forever.

    The only game I've outright regretted playing in the last couple of years was the Thor movie tie-in on the PS3. The boss fights require timed button taps, a la God of War. My memory might be a little off, but I think activation involved the L2 or R2 button, which takes longer to press down. I could never nail down the timing. It might be my fault, but I'm pretty sure it was the game.

    Also, I ran into this bug jumping off a platform where the music continued to play and everything else froze.

    Very upsetting.

    currently playing: DDO, AOC, WoT, P101
