    Let's see...

    -Before modding my PS2, buying Xenosaga III, Grandia III, and Suikoden V and only beating the first one, and afterwards selling the remaining two, unbeaten.
    -Selling my Gamecube.
    -Selling my PS2 a few months before Persona 4 was announced, having loved Persona 3. (though with that money I bought my M3 Real [​IMG] )

    What do you regret?

    Selling my DS.. I kinda miss it now, but only for KORG DS10 and some homebrew.
    Selling my PS2 Slim (so sexy!) not realizing my PS3 wasn't backwards compatible. I still want to finish ICO, Shadow of the Colossus and MGS3.
    Buying all three current-gen consoles (Wii, then X360, then PS3). Actually, I like all three, but everytime I look at them I think of the wasted money and wasted time.

    - Buying WoW and getting tired of its community, thus not playing anymore, after two months.
    - Buying LoZ: The Phantom Hourglass.
    - Selling my GBASP "because the DS can play GBA games"...
    - Being cheap and buying a SuperCard miniSD. I could have bought an M3 Perfect, but no... I HAD to go for the cheapest product available...

    - Buying some VC games that I don't even play/didn't even finish
    - Selling my DS for 5 Wii games, which ended up being traded for 2 360 games, which I enjoyed (I miss my silver DSL [​IMG] )
    - Showed off to my cousins (5 years ago) by showing them that my Pokemon Gold GBC cart won't break even if smashed by a hammer 100 times. Well, it didn't break after 95 hits (I hit it lightly) but my cousin took the hammer and did the honors. He broke it...
    - Buying the song "Another Way To Die" for Guitar Hero WT...worst song for Guitar Hero...
    - Buying the game Spyro Enter the Dragonfly... that game made me HATE Spyro...

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    I'll always regret the amount of games I buy/download and don't finish. Not to mention all the unfinished NGC and PS2 games I sold back in the day. It's nice getting to replay and finish them now though I guess.
    I regret spending so much time playing games instead of revising for my GCSEs, which I could've done so much better in if I had.

    Hrm, this is a depressing topic aha.

    Not finishing games that I spent a lot of time on. (Took me a year to finish DQV because I never came back and beat the last dungeon).
    Not selling my GBC before the speakers in it blew out.
    Not selling my Game Gear sooner. I don't think it'll ever work again.
