    Was thinking about this in pysch class. Sometimes you're really hyped about a game, or you read a good review, and you try it expecting great things. Then, you actually play it and it all goes down hill from there. It's not what you were expecting, or it just annoys you for whatever reason.

    My list for DS:

    TWEWY: After all the time I spent getting this game to work, I ended up getting rid of it. I simply cannot do the one slash move very well. So, it's just annoyning to me and I gave up. Might try again later though.

    WWE 2008: I read that it was all touch controls at IGN, so I'm like okay, I can work with that. But I can't work with the fact that you're not really fighting at all. It's a shame too, this game has great presentation if you're a wrestiling fan.

    Petz Dolphinz: What can I say, I like Dolphins. But you never get to do anything with them, unlike Petz Bunniez.

    Mario Party DS: This game just does nothing for me. I usually like mini game fests like Touchmaster, but this is just sort of blah.

    Puchi Puchi Virus: I love puzzle games, but this gets tottaly unbalanced after the 2nd or third level. Good concept though.

    Super Monkey Ball: I have SMB 1,2, and Wii, but controling with the the stylus just doen't work.

    Megaman ZX Advent: I keep longing for the days of Megaman X. Think goodnes for snes emus:)

    Warioware Touched: Good, but nowhere near as good as the gba games.

    Digimon World Championship: Pretty fun idea, like it, and beat the game, but when you pile the Digimon up, it's...SO....ZETTA...SLOW!

    You gave up TWEWY, just because you couldn't do one slash move? That's a bit much, don't you think? Also, the game gets good after the 2nd day of the 2nd week, imo.

    Also, N+ feels overrated to me.

    Spore Creatures.
    In all the fairness, I did expect something like Spore Creature Creator.

    N+ DS
    Sure, it was a good game, but after putting countless hours into the xbox version, and countless late nights testing my new Co-op levels with friends over XBL, there was pretty much no way that a portable could compete.
    I'll go ahead and list my gripes:
    -Deaths are less epic
    -Level editor sucks
    -NO ROTATING LAZOR
    -Bounce blocks are gimped extremely. First of all, if you fall from a semi-high spot, they will kill you just like the ground if you land one them, and second, it's near impossible to do a decent jump off of them.
    -Levels don't have cool titles like before
    -NO WHITE NINJA?!?! WHAT THE HELL? THAT'S MY TRADEMARK
    -No singlecart multiplayer
    -No online multiplayer (yeah, level sharing doesn't count)
    -Graphics are ugly as hell. I usually wouldn't care, but seriously. The DS could do so much better. For such a simple game, all the effects should of been perfected.
    -etc etc

    Command and Destroy.

    I wanted a genuine RTS game (odd coming from me as I don't tend to like RTS).

    But the game is crap. It's crap because it looks like they quit half way through making it. What? did they run out of money and decide "screw it, they can just settle for this much".

    It frustrated me to no end. The stupid frogs just kept jumping at me and here I'm trying countless times to slash them and it just not working no matter what I try. Suffice it to say, I was getting preatty sick of it. I'll probably try it again sometime though, it does look cool.

    I never played the online version of n+, but I don't think it's bad for something quick to play for like 20 mins.

    edit - but then again, I was never expecting anything awesome out of n+, I got it because of all the buzz. So, I couldn't really be that let down:)

    Lego Star Wars 2 the Original Trilogy for DS. Do I need a reason? Glitches.

    N+. I really can't get myself to play that for more than 3 minutes without chucking my DS at the wall. I just don't see the fun to it :\

    Also, Professor Layton. It was just so...ugh. I trudged through like the first hour of the game, and I forced myself to keep playing, but eventually had to stop; it's one of the most boring games I've played on the DS. I guess I'm just not a puzzle game fan.

    Yeah, I don't really see the fun in N+, too ..
    But Layton for me was a top DS game.

    Harvest Moon games excluding Rune Factory games.
    My tolerance wall broke down when Island of Happiness had multi-second loading from item menu screen to actual play screen. Freaking hell, when a cart game has longer loading than optical media games, there's something severely wrong.

    Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. I guess I just fell for the Pokemon logo slapped on.

    Insecticide was pretty disappointing as well. It had fun detective bits, but pretty mediocre and just boring and frustrating action bits. So much potential......DOWN THE DRAIN! [​IMG]
