starsrift: I've bought and played a lot of stinkers. But the only game I actually ever returned after a half hour of play was Grand Theft Auto III.Driving around the town at high speed and try to watch for landmarks, not crash, etc etc, it just wasn't my thing. I only got more disoriented and lost the more I played, and I f*cking love open world games. I get that the GTA games have objective arrows and stuff in them now, but I've not given the franchise another try.GTA2 or nothing. :|
Jim_Callahan: Yeah, and the buzz for Titanfall is kinda giving me flashbacks to that
The Slush: Jim_Callahan: Yeah, and the buzz for Titanfall is kinda giving me flashbacks to thatYeah, Titanfall's gonna suck. I haven't really been paying much attention to it but the hype seems unavoidable. Are we really expecting a good game from people who shat out Call of Duty? AND it's being published by EA? Yeah, good f*cking luck if you drop money on it with that pedigree. 5 hours of shooting brown sh*t on rails, but this time it's different, BECAUSE ROBOTS. It comes out in 3 weeks, have they released any actual gameplay footage that doesn't look exactly like Call of Duty?
RatMaster999: [ks23364.kimsufi.com image 850x1142]Only game I've ever bought, played once, then stuck at the bottom of my pile of games, never to be touched again.I love the concept, though.
DBrandisNC: You realize that little thing in the bottom left hand corner of the screen was a map that basically told you exactly where to go, right?

Summer Glau's Love Slave: Batman Arkham Origins. This could have easily been a truly epic game, but WBMontreal rushed the release date. The end product was so glitch ridden that it literally could not be played through to the end of the game. The worst bug was the dreaded "corrupt save" message that killed all of your progess, forcing you to start over from the beginning. The entire gameplay was just sloppy and filled with some really basic flaws that could have been easily removed via some basic playtesting and troubleshooting.I feel like I paid 60 bucks to be a beta tester.I've had this game since the October 2013 release date, and I've never been able to finish it. WBMontreal was promising to put up patches since November. Some fixes were released, but all of them have been dogshiat worthless./The Deathstroke boss fight was the best thing I've ever played.//Hope you like Bane.///You get to fight that farker 4 times.
lousyskater: [nextgengamingblog.com image 580x362]I haven't pre-ordered a game since.
nmrsnr: nmrsnr: It was barely a game, and you had to be a farking actual surgeon to get the goddamn appendix out (which I never successfully did).Let's try that again with a picture:[www.dosbox.com image 320x200]
fusillade762: Lsherm: And Doom motherfarking 3. That "game" was a pile of shiat, a disappointment, and the whole reception from everyone that it was good made me think the world had lost their goddamn mind.The thing that killed me about Doom 3 was you're surrounded by all this amazing technology, but apparently no one had figured out how to tape a flashlight to a gun barrel.
Confabulat: lousyskater: I haven't pre-ordered a game since.Rage was the first game I bought with my (then) new gaming PC. Hey I was dazzled by the graphics. Then I got to the ending.I didn't realize the game was named after the emotion you'd feel after witnessing that finale.
Ed Grubermann: I'd have gone with Duke Nuke'm Forever, but I canceled my pre-order after playing the demo.
Uncle Tractor: I kept thinking of items being crossed off a checklist as I progressed.

Vertdang: [2.bp.blogspot.com image 617x396]For PC. What a piece of shiat THAT was.Bad voice over, horrible controls, the mis-named "real time" play that was just turn-based with a little more speed, cheating AI, crap graphics.Luckily I bought it on a steam sale for only 8 bucks, but I would have rather wiped my ass with the $8 and then flushed it down the toilet. The devs wouldn't have gotten the money, and it would have been more entertaining.
diaphoresis: DoctorCal: [www.vintagetoysillustrated.com image 850x425]HEY! My brothers had something like that when we were younger. I liked it when the quarterback ran around in circles and got nowhere.
Snapper Carr: The phrase "fundamentally broken" come to mind./Shame since I still have 1 and 2 on my PC and play them regularly. 20 years on and they're still among the best 4X games ever made.
Sgt Otter: That game was originally going to be Thrill Kill, a fighting game featuring serial killers, that was supposed to completely outdo Mortal Kombat in terms of gore and sadism. It was cancelled at the last minute when EA bought the developer. They recycled the engine into WT:SS and shoved it out the door.
