Never got into it. I think that's about it. I usually only buy games that I think are going to be amazing.

I could deal with the story for what it was. Mashup disney/FF universe? Sure, what the hell, do whatever you want and I'll go with it.
It was the mechanics, the act of playing the game, that made KH2 so terrible.
The one thing I've liked about all three KH games I've played is the gameplay. To me, it's great brainless fun--fast, uncomplicated combat with sparkly effects everywhere.
What got me about the second one was the plot. Even if I hadn't played the first game, I think a lot of the same things would have bugged me. To me, Sora was a really unlikeable character in the second game. I was also annoyed because KHII takes on some very dark and interesting topics, then completely backs away from taking them seriously. It had all the potential for a fantastic, blow-your-mind story--and watered it down into a "friendship trumps everything" kiddie message.
So I guess my problem was that I expected too much. At least for KHI, the plot is consistent from beginning to end.
Hmm, I can't think of a game I've regretted buying. Well, there's KOTOR: I grabbed it on Steam, but I can't play it for more than a few minutes before it randomly closes. Because it's just been sitting there, waiting for me to find a fix, I kind of regret purchasing it.
I mean, don't hate me but I do like the concept of going around, mining for diamond and what-not, heading off into the nether and raising hell, and building stuff that could honestly turn out to look like Mario, but I'm not that kind of guy. I understand it appeals a-lot of people, but for me...
It's just kinda of iffy for me.
Watch this video and you'll understand why. Best review ever.
My god that was the funnest %#!!ing thing I have ever seen.
Outside of that though? Civilization V. It just feels so....shallow...compared to IV. Plus more braindead AI issues in that than you can shake a stick at. Watchin an army that dwarfs my own 4 to 1 putz around outside my borders while I'm at war with them is...disappointin at best considerin some of the terrible situations I got into with an army half my size in Civ IV.
I loved MW2 and played it up until BlOps release, and I soooo wanted BlOps to be an improved upon version ofMW2, and instead I got a big steaming pile of turd where my $60 once was....
blazing angels 2 and master of orion 3 (oh how terrible)
oh sweet god how could i ever forget Master of Orion 3...
MoO2 was/is one of my FAVORITE computer games of all time. I've beaten it on the highest difficulty with nearly every race and started doing custom races just for kicks. To this day i still have my original CD and, yes, i even messed with it enough to get it to run in windows 7 lol (for context to those that don't know, its a win95 game that had a DoS version :P).
I also own MoO, the original. Its decent for its time but wasn't spectacular. MoO2 was huge.
Then MoO3 hit... wtf man lol. You could have easily slapped any title on it and it would have worked... it was a horrible, convoluted and un-fun space strategy game that sucked even after you took the week to figure it out. And it had virtually NOTHING to do with the original 2 orion games past some of the races.
So... yea... that game is a sore spot here too lol... and i paid 50 friggen dollars for it the first day it came out... /grumble
