    What games were so horrible that you wish you never played?

    For me I would have to say its a tie between Painkiller: Overdose for PC, Crow COA on Playstation or Revolutions 2012

    I Don't think I need to explain why I picked these :P

    There's no games I really wish I could "unplay", if a game is bad I'll just stop playing it.

    I mean I've beaten some bad games but nothing that really doubted my faith in humanity.

    There is really one game I wish I never played and that would be Marvel Nemesis for the DS. I didn't finish it because the game was so badly broken, plus it dropped saves. I didn't even know it was possible for a DS game to drop a save until I played that game.

    I can't recall its name, however, I still remember how horrid it was. It was some racing game for the PC I picked up at Staples or Costco when I was a lot younger. The controls were a nightmare. Camera was shit. It was just an around pathetic excuse for a video game.

    When people ask for an example of the Sunk Cost Fallacy, I just point to the FFXIII sequels.

    As for games I regret playing... Soldier of Fortune: Payback. I borrowed it from a friend and still felt ripped off.

    Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).

    In a lot of ways, I want to finish it... but... a huge part of me wishes I never played it in the first place. What a disappointment that was, I've never been so filled with pure rage.

    WoW....

    It's not that the game is bad or anything far from it, but I feel like it was just such a waste of time getting to level 60, then after the expansions getting to 80 was something you could pull off in a week.... getting to 60 in classic was an accomplishment that took months.

    That and it just sucked up so much time with raiding and the drama... (Multi player games are great but WoW can show you some of the downsides very fast.)

    C&C: Tiberian sun.

    I just kept thinking "yeah, it'll probably get better next level"

    ...but then I apparently finished it. Same for the NOD campaign. Why the hell did I even play it through, I still do not truly know. I wanted to get some bang from my buck, I guess.

    I pawned it. A bit later, I kind of pirated every game and their mother. At one point, I thought "hey, I could just download a cracked version of that game". Even that thought felt it was a waste of bandwith.


    But other than that...no. There were some hard, buggy, disappointing and/or frustrating games, but that wasn't the same. At least I managed to get some fun out of that in the trying process.


    I'd nominate the vehicle gametypes of UT3 as well, but that at least had DM and CTF to make up for it.

    I take back my previous statement because I played Metroid: Other M, that fucking piece of shit of a game. Like that game was just fucking terrible.

    There's a lot of shitty PS1 games I wish I never played. Don't get me wrong, this is not a anti-Sony statement but because the PS1 had a huge library logically it had its share of shitty games just as well as the good ones. I remember there was a Spice girl game where you can finish the game in less than 15 minutes
