Since we are talking about games. What games did you regret buying? Feel free to bash and rant. Fanboys: try not to go nuts when your favourite game gets trod it. 1) The Sims: I love Sims 2 and I love Maxis but I don't love the Sims. Didn't stop me from buying the sequel. 2)Rise Of Nations: Too messy and fast paced. Infinite resources just makes it worse. 3)HOMM 3: Lots of people like it so I bought the compilation and I'm not one of those people who like it. 4)The Elder Scrolls 3 and 4: The first 2 are ground breaking but the flaws are fatal for the last 2. Mods do fix some of the game balance. The skill/your level/monster level relationship is pure idiocy. It wasn't so bad in Daggerfall. They should seriously consider reverting back to XP level system used in TES1:Arena. 5)Ultima 9: People said it sucks, I should have listened to them (but don't you want to complete the collection?) 6)Ultima Online: My first and last MMORPG, I bought it at the time when I'm surfing by the minute = $200plus phone bill in 2 weeks. The internet was expensive back then. 7)Wizardry 8: its not too bad but isn't worth it. Berserk fighters+Bishops = win. 8)Thief: I played Thief 2 before I bought this, ruined the experience. 9)Homeworld 2: Over too quickly. Oh the game scales with how well you did: Did very well? They'll throw more stuff at you in your next mission. Reminds me of TES (the weaker you are the weaker they are). 10) Arcanum: The reason why I waited years before buying their next 2 games. I usually don't bother about graphics but this is just terrible (and the caves and the combat system and the game balance) I spend hours modifying the spells and weapons to balance it out. 11)System Shock 2: Maybe I waited too long before buying it and was spoiled before I even started playing but I prefer its predecessors UW and UW2. *Hides from crazed fans* :ninja: What games did you regret buying?
