RAGE without a doubt in my mind. It was cool looking and it was an okay game but it was nothing new and had absolutely no replay value what so ever. It has a basic and cliche plot that it doesn't develop or delve into, the characters are plain and forgettable, missions were incredibly easy, not a wide variety of enemies, and I could just keep going. I'll admit the one thing I loved was Mutant Bash TV and its' host J.K. Stiles. Anyway I paid sixty dollars for the Anarchy Edition at Walmart on Black Friday and compared to the other game I could have bought, RAGE was a disappointment. I wouldn't have minded as much if I had paid say no more than twenty for it.

It wasn't that bad and the multiplayer was really fun

Trapped Dead... so many painful memories.
It was only $10 but still a ripoff, if I knew what it would be like before I bought it I wouldn't even want it for free.

Also Mindjack. I should also mention that I bought both Mindjack and Cursed Crusade used at gamestop so I returned them asap.

I will begin by saying that this game is CRAP. It's pointless--all you do is craft shit and build stuff. Sorry, but I feel my money has been wasted on this piece of shit.

I hope this is sarcasm. It does what it says on the box: the "pointless" crafting and building IS the point of the game.

-- Gears of War 3 --
The story wasn't awful, and Horde 2.0 was pretty cool; but the multiplayer in general irritated the hell out of me. I can't remember the exact reasons why I hated it so much, but it must have been pretty bad: it's the only game I've ever sold/traded.

-- Battlefield 3 (Xbox 360) --
I can't speak for the other versions of the game, but BF3 was just so disappointing. The campaign was so horribly awful, it made Modern Warfare look like Oscar-winning material. At least on 360, every patch seemed to make the game worse and worse: 90% of the official servers became privatized, where people with more money than sense could kick you out for absolutely any reason; the game seemed to get worse in terms of lag; suppression became stupidly overpowered; the balance of guns and classes was completely ballsed up...

I haven't played BF3 since April 2012. It might have got better since then, although the gameplay mechanics when I left were so bad, it would take a miracle to fix it.

Some games were bought by me, and some came from my brother.

Jupiter Strike (PS1): a Starfox knockoff with a slow moving ship, weak weapons, and a boss at the second level that is impossible to beat (unless you have a GameShark). There are no continues, so Game Over means going all the way back to level 1.

Mansion of Hidden Souls (Saturn): A game with people as butterflies, a decent story, nice music, and...you can easily beat it in under 2 hours. It's so short.

Castlevania Adventure (Game Boy): no subweapons, sluggish gameplay, a falling platform in the second level that will kill you unless you make perfectly (and I mean PERFECTLY within 0.000001 second) timed button presses to jump over it.

Celebrity Deathmatch (PS2): a game that seemed like it had potential, but you have minimal moves, a pathetic AI, and it only runs on comedic lines and gets boring after 20 minutes.

Soul Calibur 3 (PS2): a good game, but I regret it because of the File Corruption problem. Bugs. At least it didn't fry my memory cards.


I may ask to get my BBS posts removed and my account terminated at the end of 2017. If you want to reply to my topics you won't get a chance afterwards.

Saints row 3, it gets repetitive way too fast and the story is rushed and gaysexual.
Also Shadow the hedgehog.

Saints Row The Third.

A great game for about, what, 5-7 hours? It has a lot of unique features, but the replay value and the story is just absolute shite compared to Saints Row 2.

Medal of Honor. I believe it to be the most recent one that came out.
I went to GameStop to buy Dead Rising 2 that day, and when I got home with it, my Xbox couldn't read the disc. Took it back, and apparently they didn't have any more copies of DR2, so I looked around, found Medal of Honor, and thought it would be fun.
Turns out I hated it. It was bland and boring. I didn't feel any originality in it.

Deus Ex Invisible War.... I bought it over ten years ago (as a massive fan of the original), and in that time, through half a dozen PCs, I have never once had a machine that could actually run it due to the fact that only a couple of graphics cards could support it. Even now, with a brand new machine, it won't run, and I refuse to buy a graphics card solely to run one game.

And by all accounts it isn't great anyway...

I must be the only one who loved Saints Row: the Third. And I played 1 and 2 first.
