    Whether its because of how horrible it is, or just the negative impact it had on you, are there any games you wish you never played?

    For me its.... nothing. Haven't played many bad games tbh :p

    -Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, man that game was boring
    -Scene it! Lights, Camera, Action, that lost it's replay value almost instantly
    -LA Noire, I won't even describe what a disappointment that game was

    I actually got a copy of LANoire still in its wrapping I keep meaning to play it... got it 6 months ago.

    FUEL. a good game on paper but its buggy and limited in scope and functionality given the premise to the point that theirs one bug that actually makes the game more enjoyable and adds like 100X more playability... I hate the day I picked it up and hate myself more for putting so much time into that waste of space

    off the top of my head, anything I started, but never finished for whatever reason, as it's always there in the back of my mind, gnawing at me.

    Dragon Age: Origins.
    I hated that game so much, but I had to finish it because of my neurotic need to know what happened at the end. I didn't like any of the followers except the dog and I could not get used to the magic combat. I have no idea why it rubbed me the wrong way since I usually like RPGs. But it was nothing but a huge stress, and I traded it in the day after I beat it.

    Most of these games are pretty much what I've played on Xbox 360 in the four years I've had one, but there are a few that are from other consoles.

    -Transformers: The Game. Nobody, be they gamer or Transformers fan, should ever have to play this game.
    -Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. While it was better than the first movie game, this still had problems.
    -Burnout Paradise. Maybe I'm so used to Mario Kart, but I don't think I can ever play a normal racing game and actually win 1st place.
    -Glover for the N64. This was the first game that made me realize that bad games do exist.
    -Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. Eight years after the second game, Rare makes this as the series' third? I still feel ripped off. I don't care if it finally uses the Stop N Swop shtick that became a great video game mystery, Banjo and Kazooie can NOT do a racing game.
    -Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Admittedly, the former of the two was my first Xbox 360 game that I had gotten for my birthday alongside the console itself, and I give it a grudging respect. Personally, I thought it was the better of the two Modern Warfare games that I've owned, because to be honest, the second game was utter CRAP.
    -Tony Hawk's Underground 2 and subsequently every game after it. I honestly thought that the last good game from the Tony Hawk series was Underground 1. Maybe it was because I just enjoyed the idea of having an actual story mode that starred your custom character, even if the voice acting was hokey at best. But Underground 2, looking back at it, was just piss. I can't believe I ever found Bam Margera funny when I was a teen, because he steals the show in this game more than Tony Hawk, and the latter's name is part of the game's title! I barely bothered with American Wasteland, because the story for that game was even dumber than the "around the world" trope Underground 2 used. And I'm glad we're getting the first Tony Hawk game again on XBLA/PSN. Hopefully it reignites the spark the first few games had.
    -God of War III. I just didn't like it.

    -Super Paper Mario: I just can't finish the last act, because I'm bad at video game, and now it's killing me that it's unfinished.
    -Pokemon Diamond: I wish I'd forgotten about it after having beaten it once. I restarted a game recently, and forgot that I'd saved over and event Deoxys.
    -The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion: What a jolly bit of crud. Chores and walking, nothing else.
    -Resident Evil 5

    *Ahem*

    I did like Burnout, I'm just not used to racing games outside the Kart racing sub-genre.

    Besides, who couldn't resist throwing a red shell at that one player who used the lightning bolt in the race? :lol
