    What are some consoles/video games that overall felt like a waste of money or a failure to you?


    *cough cough* Wii U *cough cough*

    It did have some good games though, so i felt honestly mixed on it.

    Oh and i regret mario party 10 because it ruined everything that made me love the games.
    also i enjoyed the ps vita more than the 3ds almost to be honest.

    So what do you all think???

    My PS4 Pro. Got it for $400 and Sony has a sale later in the year for $299.95. That's all I can think of at the moment.

    Only game I can think of regretting buying in recent memory is Tales of Zesteria ... God I just hate the characters in that game, so flat and boring ... yet i loved its prequel Tales of Berseria. Took me 4 goddamn attempts of playing Zesteria to actually force my way through it. 4 goddamn times. And the real kicker is ... I ended up with it on PC and PS4!

    ps4, PS3, pokemon moon, crash n-sane trilogy, oculus rift (not nearly enough games for it to be worth my purchase),

    kinda regretting getting my switch considering i'm seeing how expensive of a system it is... joycons are $90, games are $80 for the most part, pro controller cost me $110,

    i didn't even buy overwatch and i still regret having it

    there's probably more i can't remember at this moment

    "*cough cough* Wii U *cough cough*" You're joking right?? With a few tweaks, the Wii U is the best, and most versatile console that Nintendo has made to date. I would regret it if I bought the Switch for example. $400 for a console that only has a few games worth playing. Wii U can play just about every game Nintendo has made over the past 30 years.

    I can see how the Wii U would have been disappointing during most of it's years in existence. But that's the irony in life. Something that was the worst, turns out to be the best in the end.

    Only thing that comes to mind is Sim City (the last one with that disastrous launch) because I couldn't even play the game for the first week and I spent $60 on it.

    I've never regret any consoles because I eventually get enough use out of it to justify buying it. I have gotten lots of use out of my Wii U, it was worth it for Mario Kart 8 alone.

    PS1 was boring, not many good games. Hyrule Warriors was a horrible disappointment and it was really boring to me. And of course most movie licensed games are automatic wastes.

    I regret buying NSMB2. It didn't really add anything new and the game was too easy (in my opinion). And the whole coin thing was kind of pointless.

    that's simply a opinion buddy. And the games are perfect.

    And the switch doesn't only have a few games worth it... the phone app ports are utter shit but there's underrated gems that are worth buying.

    Wii U, considering the fact I only played a small handful of games on it then Cemu came out and has been making amazing progress.

    I buy a lot of games on the cheap and I forget to play them.

    For a game? Paper Mario Sticker Star. Boy, what a mistake.

    For a console? Wii U. Good console, but didn't do much with it.

    I have no regrets. If you live life full of regrets then you will never achieve true happiness.

    1. Realize it’s ok to make mistakes.
    2. Control negative thoughts.
    3. Live in the now.

    Not necessarily a console or video game, but game-related. I do regret upgrading my computer recently, mainly because now I'm broke AF, but also because new video cards are (or at least, should be) right around the corner.

    Switch is $300. Wii (got mine for $20 used) covers 2/3rd the uses of WiiU and CEMU covers the other 1/3rd. Combine that with the fact that it's the most cumbersome home system to date with terrible marketing...yeah, WiiU was not a good system. A 720p portable with 1080p output all in one small package is exactly what WiiU should've been, but it took the console's failure for Nintendo to realize it.

    On topic: I regret buying GPD Win, which I later sold. I remember really wanting a Gamegear when I was younger, but then barely using it once I got one, sticking almost entirely to Gameboy games. I think those are the only two consoles I regret. Edit: and Shield Portable, which was also meh.
