    Quite a few games, actually. The latest being the Valkyrie Profile that just came out for DS. I was really looking forward to it, but after only the first 45 minutes, I can't stomach anymore of its incredible melodrama. The combat also isn't what I thought it would be; it's pretty boring. I was expecting more twitch action mixed in with the strategy, but so far as I can tell, it's just button mashing.

    The World Ends With You

    i wasl ooking to that game for so long, it was over hyped in my opinion, ended being another Jrpg with an emo lead character with a story that makes no sense and a gimmicky control scheme...

    I was expecting...fun?
    I mean there was absolutely no side quests, and a confusing control scheme.

    pokemon. please don't flame me. but it was fun for awhile, and then it was tedious. i don't want to work so hard to unlock stuff in a game. just don't have that kind of time.

    FFCC Rings of Fate. It looked like such an improvement over the GC original but it just...fell short of expectations.

    Moon. It looked good and sounded good and I thought I was going to enjoy it but I just couldn't get into it..

    RO DS. I've played the PC game for years and I was looking forward to the DS version but damn if the controls aren't really annoying....it just doesn't work to me.

    Damn! This game was praised to hell and back! I was so happy when I got it in my hand. But when playing I soon realized I didn't like it at all. I don't know what it is exactly, but I really couldn't get into it.

    Dragon Ball: Origins
    The trailers looked so amazing. It was fun too in the beginning, and the cutscenes are really cool. But the main gameplay is just boring and repetive.

    Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker
    On this I went totally wild! I expected Pokemon in 3D. Instead it was kinda boring, the plain area's, the VERY lame music and sounds really turned me off.

    Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time
    I played and enjoyed Superstar Saga, so I expected more of the same but then maybe even better. Instead I found myself playing with a straight face and hardly enjoying it.

    Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume
    The stupid dialogue is a REALLLLL turn off. So much drama and useless crap. Typical japenese stuff. The strategy is far to find. Why? You often have to hold back, 'cause if you go 'all in' you're gonna get surrounded by all sides and then there you are, having 4 enemies going wild on you at the same time.

    TWEWY- Boring as hell, and I didn't like the controls

    Luminous Arc- Repetive, boring and long battles

    Proffesor Layton- Puzzles just dont turn me on

    Blue Dragon Plus- Just like Luminous Arc

    Naruto games- Didn't like them, somehow

    DQIV (I liked DQV though)- Didn't like restarting at lv 1 each chapter, had to grind all over again making it repetive and boring

    Imagine Games [​IMG]- You know what they say about Imagine Games.......

    Avatar: Burning Earth
    Star Wars Lethal Alliance
    Splinter Cell
    Tao's Adventure
    Mario Hoops
    Princes Peach(whatever it was called)

    All seemingly good looking titles...but once they were in the slot, the initial appeal wore off to reveal hideous controls or boring gameplay or frustrating puzzles etc.
