Ever bought a game you couldn't be bothered to play?

Topic. I am about 2 hours each into Fallout: New Vegas and LittleBigPlanet 2 and I have lost all interest in both games already. The online community for LBP2 is abysmal and the bugs in FNV make the game practically unplayable.

I feel irritated at shelling out about 40 for games I was looking forward to playing, only to lose all interest in them. Not to mention a couple of used, cheap games that looked good but I just don't care to pick up any more. There's nothing coming out in the coming months that really interests me.

Perhaps I'm just getting old... (Note I am not old. I'm 20.)
Anybody else losing their enthusiasm for gaming lately?

Well since this topic of "do games just suck or am I getting older" has come up a few times lately, I'm gonna say no you're not alone.

But it could just be you're not interested in those games tbqh

And to answer the original question, yes.

Fallout New Vegas was it for me too. I bought the game, couldn't get into it, traded it, bought it again later and still couldn't get into it; traded it again.

It's a pain because I loved the original release on PC. Bought the Ultimate Edition for PS3 and it's just awful in comparison.

And previous poster is correct; in retrospect I remember several similar topics about the same subject.

Darksiders 2. Really really meh. Very few abilities to use and the lore just does not immerse me at all. Very stale other games do this better.

Exactly this. Weird.

Record of Agarest War 2. Loved the first game. Literally can't play the second because it runs so poorly. It rarely gets above 15fps and has constant 30sec-1min freezes between actions in-game and dialogue during cutscenes.

There was also God of War and Darksiders in the past couple years. I bought the first game in each series (first two in GoW actually) and they are just terrible. All-around awful games.

There have been plenty over the years, besides those, though.

Why did you buy the PS3 version when you already have the PC version? I'm usually the opposite XD
