The forking paths, definatly. Then the button combos. I don't think I've ever played a game where I had to lose to win. Then I tried to memorize the combos and specials but I can't do fast paced strategy to save my life. The only fighter I am good at is Naruto Ninja Storm which is kiddie level :P.

I got disappointed after buying it, BUT I do still spend my spare time making random characters and houses (the customization is so much fun).

Terrible games? Yeah, I got terrible games. I got the Gameboy Color version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game for Christmas. They decided that doing skateboard tricks is boring, so they made it a racing game instead. All the characters are the same person with different coloured hair. Neverwinter Nights may be the worst game I've ever played. Bland graphics, confusing gameplay, a story I just couldn't bring myself to care about, and music that was... was there any music? Either way, that game had it all. All wrong. After playing that mess, I refused to touch another Western RPG until Fallout 3.

After spending 130 hours playing Star Ocean: Till the End of Time I was under the assumption that tri-Ace was a good developer. So I bought an Xbox 360 to play their games. Then I played Infinite Undiscovery. Then, four days later, I sold Infinite Undiscovery. But surely Star Ocean: The Last Hope would be good, right? There's no way they'd mess up the last game in the series, right?

And then a month later I sold my Xbox. There were just too many bad memories associated with it. And a special mention goes to Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier for being the terrible game I almost bought.

final fantasy xii revenant wings... i was like wtf!? with its ending and the gamestyle......
next, harukanaru toki no naka de yume no ukihashi... i was expecting like the ps2 ver. and then just an rpg(which is sooo easy) and a very very very little bit of romance(dat should have been d reason i wasted money for it)......

last, saikin koi shiteru... it was like... it made me doze off. seriously, i admit i'm picky and one of the reason i've hated it is that it has a not very nice art but still fine. but oh god,,, it is the only game that i haven't played for an all-night.

I quite liked the Another Code games, though they are a little short. They do have some of the best "thinking outside the box" puzzles, though. Well, the Wii one only really has one stellar puzzle...

Did you just mention Majora's Mask in a thread about the worst video games ever?

*Sniffle* It was Spore for me... I had been following the game's development for years, and it looked so, so cool, but when it came out it was just a dumbed down, shallow version of what I expected *sigh*

I think Majora's Mask is one of the most under-appreciated games there is.

I was disappointed with Soul Calibur IV. Lack of good story, lack of modes, then just more guest characters and perverted ecchi-like material, which is the last thing it needs.

Dawn of Mana is the most disappointing game I've ever bought. I assumed that it would be amazing, like it's predecessor. Instead I got some piece of junk title, with horrible graphics, controls, and plot.

Oh and another really bad game that I own, (yet still play) is Dragonball Budokai.

Though somehow, I actually enjoy playing it. It's like watching a B-movie. I'm playing it more for the laughing value from the horrible game-play, then from actually enjoying it.

Oh wait!!! I just remembered there is one more game that I was excited about, because it the sequel to a game I liked.

I bought it, and I played it.

I heard I spent the next three hours staring numbly at the TV screen in shock, then I apparently preceded to softly bang my head against a door in utter despair for another hour. I do not remember this, as I have repressed all memory of that night to maintain my sanity.

Though even today, I am still plagued with horrific glimpses of that night in my deepest, darkest nightmares.

The name of the game I bought that day was:
Highlight if you dare:

Naruto Games....

I'm sorry, I'm also a Naruto fan but the games(especially the gba ones) are sooo boring. I liked the shippuden one on DS though, but still, a game i wouldn't like to play again.

I don't really like FFX-2 but it's not I'm totally hate it too. Indeed it is very hard (and fast-paced too), but it's still a good RPG with a good graphics (no comment on the story, it's like a gaiden, side-story, or a prologue of FF-X, why don't they just include it in FFX International or something?)

And the most important thing is that they have babes in it, sexy and expose lots of skin, and there are 3 of them >_< Too bad Square ONLY relies on the babes. They think it (the babes) could sells.
