What is the worst game you ever bought?

is it bizarre that I got hours of enjoyment from the Army Men series?

 

Probably Outlaw Volleyball. The only good thing about that game was Steve Carell as the commentator.

I guess I'd have to say Sim ThemePark. Couldn't stand it.

It's no Roller Coaster Tycoon ...

 

There's some games I hardly played because I could tell right off I wasn't going to like it, like DungeonSiege2, The Last Express, etc. so maybe they'd qualify, but hard to say based on 30-60 minutes of gameplay. :)

Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor - Not only is it the worst game I ever played, but after uninstalling it I had to reinstall my operating system. Beat that!

I agree with that. Evil buggy game.

It's a toss up between Dungeon Lords and Ultima IX: Ascension. Problem with both those games is that after heavy patching, I was able to enjoy both games a lot..

 

If we're talking games that I've been given too (Hey, it's part of my job!), I have to say.. Neverwinter Nights. I had such high hopes for that game and it turned out to be so boring, so ugly, so stupid and so repetitive. Even the story was insanely dumb. Of course, I'm only talking about the single player aspect as I never even tried multiplayer.

 

Oh, and Morrowind has to get a mention too! I actually bought that game.. wow, I almost forgot about that. Anyhow, I loved Daggerfall and Morrowind turned out to be an ugly, boring and uninspired mess of a game.

 

 

I can't choose. One of those four games. I think I can rule out Ultima IX, since it's become somewhat of a collector's item since then and I love my big Ultima box.

Morrowind and Fable: B

The Bard's Tale: C

Call of Cthulhu: C-

 

I'd give CoC a D, but it has some great moments. J. Edgar Hoover strapping me down to a chair and slapping me around until I cooperate. Me unleashing a beast that kills the little girl, her ghost popping up occasionally, and the big band theme slipping into tense moments.

 

However, if these really are the worst games you've bought, then you've been lucky.

 

If you ever want to torture me, here's a good game that will make me beg for death:

It's a toss up between NWN1, Deathtrap Dungeon and Tombraider III

Journey: The Escape.

 

Buggy Atari 2600 game that had a game stopping bug that you can never escape the first level.

 

Even E.T. was better than that.
