    Worst game you have ever been tricked into buying?

    Lets keep this simple....

    What is the Worst game you have ever been tricked into buying?
    Pre-Nes to PC/PS3/360/Wii era is fare game

    My pick is Halo 2&3, basically overrated gameplay, and just a huge let down for me anyways........

    Twisted Metal Black: I bought it only to find out that all the cutscenes had been taken out of the PAL version, Fucking asshole do-gooders thinking it was unsuitable.

    Close second is Final Fantasy X, Shitty voice acting and an all around shitty game.

    Maybe you were a longtime gamer by then, but for me Final Fantasy X was the first non-Gameboy game I ever played and I loved it. It was in seventh grade, I had just plunked down $200 that I won in an essay contest for a PS2 and it was immediately so worth it - stayed up all night for a week or so playing that game. I bought it solely on the basis of seeing the commercial where Tidus and crew skate down those cables and he jumps across them. I still think it's a fun and beautiful game.

    Erm, back on topic: I couldn't get into Metal Gear Solid 2 at all and FFX-2 didn't grab me the same way the original did. I returned 'em both.

    Wow, gin, you got doubly screwed. I'm pretty sure Dirge of Cerberus was released in the States at around the same time as Advent Children, give or take a month.

    Too many to name. At a pinch it would have to be Operation Winback on the N64. Iremember this being billed as the N64's answer to Metal Gear Solid. Not a f***ing chance!

    Gah! SSBM alone makes the console worthwhile. Though I agree there was a definite lack of great non-Nintendo titles.


    That said I dont think I have ever made a poor video game purchase. I tend to have to spend my own money so I typically only go for stuff I know I will like.

    That's the thing about Nintendo... You rarely end up buying a game for a Nintendo console that wan't made by nintendo tbh, except in the good ol'days of Rare =[
