Buyers Remorse

We've all had it. This seems like a good game, ah what the hell, bought. Oh god, it's shit. I don't want to play it. But I just spent all that money on it. Damn.



I know I definately have.

But what are your worst moments of this? I think for me nothing beats Final Fantasy 14. In case my blatent obviousnuss (Is that a word? It should be) has not shown you by now, I love Final Fantasy. Or I should say, I love the OLD Final Fantasy. But I believed the rumors, I bought into the hype, the developers are listening to us, Final Fantasy 14 will be the next generation MMO.

Worst. Game. Ever. And I spent £45 on the collectors edition sitting next to me. I think I have spent longer looking at the pretty box, badly made cup and shitty cloth map than I have actually playing the game. The game came with absolutely no content, terrible system, and just generally bad enough to make me make the warrrgarbl noise.

Also I am choosing to ignore the multitude of games purchased in the Steam sales as I am certain I will play them "someday". Maybe I have no idea when but "someday". So, even if it's not vidya related, let me know your buyers remorse stories in the comments section.

Also before this post ends, my thoughts go out to those in America suffering from the severe snow, and those in Queensland, Australia facing the worst storm ever. Hope everything ends up okay for you all.

The worst I had to have bought would be bloody roar when I was a bit younger. I played it once and that was that.

I once bought a really crappy webcam off ebay for $1. It even came with free shipping.

Oh well, at least it was only a dollar.

AVP was so bitterly disappointing. Just beyond words. I'm still mad about that shit.

It happens all the time. This is why I usually read reviews and play demos before buying the game.
