The two examples the come to mind right away for me were devil may cry 2 and xenosaga both 0f which I spent 50$ on and were total trash.
I actually really liked Xenosaga myself. Whole SERIES though.... not for everyone.
Couldnt stand the first game, Xenogears, at all.
Recently, a terrible purchase for me was the most recent DBZ: Tenkaichi game. The previous three that had that title were excellent.... flying around and dodging and lasers and explosions.... it made me think of games like VOOT. Alot of fun with all three.
THIS one though..... ugh. It's like someone made literally an ENTIRE GAME out of quick-time events. I mean, seriously, there isnt even ONE part of the gameplay that does not involve QTEs.
Others are.... hmm..... most of Capcom's fighting games. I (usually) buy them, and usually am disappointed. UMVC3 is the only exception. Couldnt stand SF4 (or 3 for that matter) or Capcom VS SNK.... bought ALL of those, regretted ALL of them. I'm much more used to Arc's games. Capcom's..... they tend to be poke-fests, whereas I'd rather be hyper-aggressive, being that that's the way I am by default.
Also.... the Wii, and absolutely everything associated with it. I wish I could go back in time and un-buy that horrid thing. That was a big pile of money I never got back. Oh I sold it to Gamestop later on.... for hardly anything.... blech. And the Gamecube, for that matter. Only redeeming feature was PSO.
And as much as I hate to list these..... DDP:DOJ, and ESPGaluda 2. I love shmups, love danmaku types especially, and love Cave, but I CANT STAND either of these games. DOJ is the worst.... probably 70 bucks, and I spent like, all of an hour with it, before tossing it aside permanently.
And ugh, Devil May Cry, yes, I'd grabbed those as well. Bah. Not fond of ANY of them, really. Whole series. More money down the drain.
If only I could stop buying things simply because they are shiny. I dont handle money well.
