    Where all things matter
    What games you shouldn't waste money on even if it was your last?.

    Start the list!!!, and give the reasons :).

    Update: Here's mine

    When I was a kid I used to Hate/Love this game, and I still do It's a horrible game. This is the type of game that make Gamers want to cause suicide. You don't think so then take a look at this funny review. I wouldn't even spend my last dime to buy this game, and make it look fun, that's how bad it is. The game has some fun parts, but it's only for a short period of time.

    Ultra Street Fighter 4, because it's going to be the exact same bloody game yet again, re-released under a new name instead of being distributed as DLC for the original.

    Bound By Flame. It looks neat, but it plays like shitty dick, sounds like shitty dick, and is shitty dicks.

    Also Thief, get Dishonored instead.

    Also Universe Sandbox.

    Also the Wii U in it's entirety, it's a shit system. ;O;

    That would clearly be wrong. I mean they may be a bit tainted but there are some multiplatform titles for it.

    Anyway is the art or the artist likely to see the phase "in exceptionally poor taste" used when describing it? Might wish to give it a miss then. That said I probably would ignore a lot there for a good game, I certainly ignore quite a bit there when it comes to films and books.

    Quality is a different one, I might occasionally pick up a bad game for some reason -- all the COD knockoffs might be bad COD games but they often make fine shooting galleries and sometimes I want that.

    To be fair, it's an okay if you've been waiting, like, 6 years to get into Street Fighter 4.

    Very true, seeing that it's a game currently available for everything from iOS through the 3DS to home consoles and PC. If you still haven't played it, you're trying really hard. ;O;

    Metal gear solid V ground zeroes.
    Seriously, unless the game is like $5 don't even bother, it's a waste of time.

    Also Pikmin 3. Bought and returned it on the same day, I had NO fun with Pikmin, albeit it's audience is rather Niche.

    And lastly I'd say Ryse Son Of Rome on Xbox One. It's a short burst entertainment kind of game, and not really one I enjoyed. Reeks of launch title terribleness.

    Persona 4.
    Such an overrated game. I mean come on, it's basically a waifu simulator! You should play the game Persona 4 ripped off--It's called Conception II. MUCH better than Pearusona..
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Well if you think about it Kojima made Zone of the enders series, and that was incredibly short, and fun, but people still bought it. Unless your a true MGS/Kojima fan (like me) it's worth it, but if not don't risk it. It has high replay value even though it's short as hell. I'm happy just because they gave us a little taste of the content before the fully polish game comes out we can't really complain if they're introducing us Open-world especially (Not directing towards you just saying).

    Eh, I don't really know. Nothing particularly springs to mind as a massive waste of money. Maybe the yearly sports game updates, those seem a bit ridiculous.

    I'm still in two minds about Ground Zeroes. The gameplay is top notch, it's easily one of the most fun games in the series, but it is criminally short. I think it would've been better if it was just an introduction to The Phantom Pain rather than a separate release, however it does have high replayability due to all the hidden goodies. I can understand the intention and the rather low ($25 for a digital download) is acceptable, but it still left me hungry for more. It's definitely a title that's solely dedicated to hardcore fans and I have no doubt that there will be a Ground Zeroes + The Phantom Pain bundle eventually, so those who are on the fence about the game should probably just wait for that.

    First thing that popped into me mind when I saw the thread title.
    Then again any major sports game with the year behind it is the same shit over and over again.
    COD is also one of the games that just has to have it from it's multiplayer.

    Other then that, I think games that are being released on a near yearly basis would be the ones that have atleast some caution when buying them.
