Tell GR: What's The Worst Game You Ever Bought?

Posted on Tuesday, February 12 @ 18:52:04 Eastern by

Today, Gearbox Software and Sega released Aliens: Colonial Marines to the masses. While GameRevolution's review copy arrived yesterday, it's clear that fans eager to step into Ridley Scott's scifi-horror universe have reason to be disappointed.

Movies don't necessarily encourage watchers to buy their tickets in advance. Television is pumped into your home after you pay the bill, but I don't know if it's fair to compare it to video games. Why do we consumers hand over our cash before the product arrives? Why do we buy games sight unseen.

Sure, there are plenty of trailers, but so few games get demos anymore (and that's the best way to see if you'll like a game, hands-down). Anyway, it got me thinking, the worst game I ever bought without previous knowledge would have to be Animaniacs for the Game Boy. What about you?

Without demos, how do you know what games to buy? Do you wait for reviews before picking up your preorder?

What's the worst game you ever bought and immediately regretted?
