    We've all played a really bad game once or twice in our lives, or even foolishly put down money for them.

    One I remember was Glover for the N64. That game was so f**king hard to play with that damn ball that you have to constantly babysit and if you let it out of your sight for ONE second, it pops/shatters/breaks/falls of the stage.......sad part is I still have it....

    Most recently, I got Saints Row, and it was also made by Volition Inc. I got it because it was cheap and around GTA4 came out, I heard of it mentioned alot, I was curious and the reviews arnt half bad. I dislike the game's driving physics and it's overall style, maybe GTA4 spoiled me but I didnt find the game to be that cool, plus, I also dont like at how I would some times car jack, my character would shoot the guy, and toss him out of the car. Well, I hate wasting ammo like that, and... that's just cold, bad enough I'm stealing a car.

    SW: KOTOR. I have a 360. I can't really figure out the controls to work easily with that control since there is no B or W buttons. So I'm going to trade it in and get soemthing else. A 360 game.

    I thought this one would be good. Glad I tried the demo because I was not impressed at all.

    I regret paying full price for Need For Speed Carbon. I just couldn't get into it at all.

    Dang, I actually wanted that game for a while. Now I'm not so sure..I loved Secret of Mana.

    I regret buying Dragon Ball Z Sagas (I enjoyed it, but I should've just rented it), Final Fantasy III for DS (a good example of taking a relatively decent game and making it more boring than I had previously thought possible), and Advance Wars Dual Strike (it's a good game, but I should've realized that I shouldn't have bought it since every turn-based strategy I've ever played has only entertained me for about a week before I never want to play it, ever again), and Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People (also very very boring).

    Renting? Nothing.

    Playing: Final Fantasy VII and VIII...sooo boring. The Table Tennis for 360 demo...I can't believe that game's actually widely praised; the controls are so clunky, the challenge is non-existent and the game as a whole is incredibly stale.

    The two movie Transformers games on the DS. Why the hell did I buy BOTH?

    GTA: San Andreas. I got it for $50, played it and didn't care for it. I just wasn't my type of game. Why do I regret this? Because a week later, it was a "Greatest Hits" and sold for $20 (or was it $30).

    This place is making me feel like a do-do head.

    I too have a distaste for FFVII and FFVIII.
