I have bought several games on Impulse, and I'm quite happy that Impulse remains only a DD platform instead of a DRM platform like Steam.

And then Gamestop bought them and decided to not develop it further.

Best: Persona 4 Golden.

Worst: Dead Rising 2 for $60. Never played part 1, fell for the hype. It was good, but I would only pay $20-30 for that game.

I dunno what my best impulse buy is, but my worst was "Sequence" during a steam sale. That game is so, so, so bad.

Best: CoD4 -- I hadn't played any other CoD game, and had only played two FPSs before it. I think I've probably logged more time into CoD than I have all of Final Fantasy and Elder Scrolls combined.
Worst: FF XIII -- I bought it at launch because it was going to be so amazing! Crap.



Other notable buys:
Good: Bioshock, Borderlands(these first three are right up there with CoD4), Minecraft, Halo 3

Eh: The Darkness

Bad: DMC4, Halo: ODST


Most of my buys are impulse buys when it comes to games.

Best: Alice: Madness Returns
Worst: MX vs ATV Reflex

^^I remembered having a ton of fun with ATV Offroad Fury 2 on the PS2, and I assumed that MX vs ATV would be the PS3 equivalent. Turns out its just terrible.
