Best: Grand Theft Auto (ps1). Even after GTA 2 came out I was still introducing friends to this game it was off the radar of everyone I knew.

Worst: Falcon 3.0. Not because it was a bad game but because I didn't have a computer that could run it until 4.0 came out years later.

I usually plan a list of games when I go to the shop, and if there's nothing there I like, I tend to give myself about 20 to buy other games I might prefer instead, which turn out decently in most cases. Though nowadays, I buy pretty much everything online.

Impulse buys I liked:
Final Fantasy X
Children of Mana
Kingdom Hearts II
Yggdra Union
Riviera: The Promised Land
Star Ocean: The First Departure
Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions
Lyrical Nanoha A's Portable: The Battle of Aces

I didn't like:
Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness
Heroes of Mana
Evelynn is my waifu.
Help... Me...

Best: Final Fantasy Tactics. While I didn't buy it myself, I did ask for it on impulse. I saw it on the shelf and thought it would be like FF7, so I wanted it. When I booted it up and found grid based strategy rather than "Stand and slash" FF7 battles I was surprised but kept going and it ended up being one of my favorite games of all time.

Runner Up: Okami

Worst: Rayman 3D. Grabbed it with my 3DS because I suddenly wanted a game to play in 3D. I played it for less than an hour before it was headed to Gamestop.
RIP City of Heroes and Paragon Studios - Killed by NCsoft.
Not changing this line until Dimitri, Moosh, and Ricky appear in another LOZ game (7/20/09)

Best: PS3 + Demon's Souls + Valkyria Chronicles

Worst: Dragon Age: Origins (PC) or Lollipop Chainsaw. The first because I fell for Bioware's marketing BS about it being a 'spiritual successor' to Baldur's Gate 2, and the second was just an average game that I should never have paid anything remotely close to full price for.
