Which games did you buy this gen that ended up being a waste of money?

FF XIII-2- Terrible story and characters

Persona 4 Arena- Really boring story, online died fast

LBP2- The platforming was still terrible

Catherine- Cool story, hated the puzzles. didn't finish it

I just finished Catherine again last night. The story gets really... dumb/weird at the end IMO. Did you try playing on Easy? You can usually breeze through the puzzles (some of them are still hard though, even on Easy...)

FF13-2 I still have yet to play because I love FF13 too much and I just keep playing it >_> I don't want to move on. I did start FF13 and after about 5 minutes I turned it off.

I feel like Madden 12 was a waste of my money because I bought it after the season was over and it's not as interesting if you're not playing along with the season. Then I ended up getting Madden 13 not that long after so Madden 12 took a backseat.

MGS4 is honestly a waste of my money, not because of the game itself, but because I won't play it. I have only played the first MGS for PS1, and I want to play all the MGS games in order... but every time I play MGS2, it just reminds me of how great MGS1 is and within 30 min minutes of playing (which you're still watching scenes and listening to codec after 30 min...) I just get so nostalgic, turn it off, and play through MGS1 again. So I will probably never get past MGS2 because I love MGS1 too much LOL. Even though I own MGS2, 3, and 4...

Sorry mate, but XIII-2 was pretty obviously going to be a waste of time.

GTA4 and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

I tried to like both. I really did.

I'm kind of a FF drone to where I buy all t he new FF games. Plus all the previews kept making it sound like they fixed everything about about FF XIII and that it was so much better

GTA4 and UMvC3

Why obviously...?

This is honestly the first time I've heard anyone say something like that. I tend to hear only praises for the game. Though I don't really hang out on forums much so IDK what the word is around here.

The only people I see praise it are the same people that insist everything bad about FFXIII was fixed in XIII-2 when in reality XIII-2 is just more of the same only with a worse story.
