The biggest mistake you made this gen?

Buying a Wii. Such a waste of money. I know I shouldn't say that because I loved Super Mario Galaxy 2, but that's it. Way too much money spent on something that gave me a week of fun. Not doing the same with Wii U unless Nintendo steps it up, but without trophies, with already limited third-party releases and performance just on par with current gen, I'm not about to repeat my mistake easily.

Unless they do Super Mario 128 and it's the most awesome platformer ever.

PS Move. It's actually awesome when it's programmed well in the game, and it's a lot of fun, but so few games actually use it and the majority of them are just shooters.

And of course, instead of improving or innovating, they just slowly let it die and hope people forget about it.


Well, I almost forgot about the Move.

My biggest mistake was actually liking Guitar Hero and Rock Band for a while. Then when DJ Hero came out, I snapped out of it.

Lighting my 3DS on fire.

I'd probably say buying inFamous blind, but I don't really regret that. It's not a bad game, just not my style.

Besides, if I had quit buying games blind because of inFamous, I wouldn't have played Dark Souls, which is already one of my top favorite games.

Vita.

As far as games go I don't feel i made any mistakes in 2012, and that includes D3(150 hours and most of them were a blast).

But then again, I still have a ton of games from the steam sales that I haven't played yet.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

I'm guessing you don't like RPGs?

Not noticing the local Blockbuster was going out of business until it was too late. I could've loaded up on games cheap with the sales they had.
