SW:TOR CE... huge waste of money. I logged on today as a free account and noted they have added nothing to the CE vendor other than a Tauntaun since release yet the cartel store is constantly updated with new items. Complete bullshit.

The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

Non-MMORPGs is a long list. But looking price/value wise (ie most expensive with shortedt playtime) I think it's Oblivion and Civilization IV. Oblivion because I was spoiled by Morrowind's deep system and Oblivion feld kinda shallow after that. Civ4 because it's just the worst civ-game ver made. Good thing that Civ5 is so much better (back to that Civ1+3 feeling)

 

Oblivion? Lol sure, even though they fixed the combat system, made exploration more fun, improved the physics and graphics, got rid of the 90% text conversations, and the world felt a lot more interesting? Please don't spew this nonsense about Morrowind having a "deep system". The world was depressing, exploring was lackluster, CLIFF RACERS, the combat system was atrocious, you read more text than you would in one of those old text based RPG games, and the game itself feels very dated. Your worst purchase was probably those nostalgia goggles that you glued to your face before you play Oblivion.

 

Worst MMORPG purchase? Runescape probably. For some reason, when I was much younger, I enjoyed the game and wanted membership. But of course, realized too late that there's no point in getting membership unless you're going to keep it forever (items become unusable, quests and areas are blocked off). And the game itself is rather plain.

Non-mmorpg, maybe CSGO, bought it to play with a group that I'm a part of but never got into it. The game feels like an overrated (a Valve game, so of course it will be) and more polished version of CSS. Or maybe all those CoD games I bought, I do enjoy the singleplayer (no flaming me plz) on all the ones I bought (CoD4 to MW3), but some of them I barely played the multiplayer of and now I feel like it was a waste. Then again, I actually used to enjoy CoD's multiplayer back then.

Luckily I got to beta test SWTOR, so I knew it would fail to keep the sub system. I cancelled my pre-order and saved money on the CE xD

 

My worst buy however is quite sad....

Hellgate London (great game imo, but it shut down)

GW2 (let down, don't play it much)

D3: CE 

TSW: Founder *sigh*

Champions online founder *double sigh*

 

Anyways, I learned my lesson, no more CE or founder. Most MMO are coming out with cash shop bullshit anyways that will release CE perks later on for small cash compared to the CE price.

For me, it would have to be FFXIV and Vanguard.  Both were huge disappointments and that's coming from all three gamers in this household.  Even though GW2 isn't what we'd hope it would be, so far it's still playable but with every patch that pushes you in the store's direction a little harder, it's allure is diminishing. :/

For me as well as many SWTOR. The great feeling was not buying the collectors edition after seeing one for $30.00

at a retail store.

Mines of Moria and further LoTRO expansions when my character was mid levels. Not saying its bad but I never actually reached Moria, so it was a waste.

Awww someone said something bad about your precious? Your worst purchase must have been a lifetime sub to Oblivion Fanboyism. Poor you having to read all that text must have caused serious trauma... and imagine that a 4 years older game feeling dated compared to it's successor, how smart must you be to come to such conclusions?

Morrowind was 10 times the game Oblivion was.

SWG pre cu > all

Guild Wars 2.

Everyone kept saying it was the most innovative MMO in years and it was completely different to everything else. I played it and I found it to be the exact same experience as before only with no world PVP which sucks even more. Instead there was the keep PVP from WAR but no mounts so it was constant long pointless runs.

 

 

I could also list, WAR, LOTRO, AoC, Dark and Light.... Remember that one? lol.

 

I keep getting caught up because there hasn't been an MMO I've liked since SWG was ruined on Nov 15th 2005. I dunno why I keep doing it to myself, I just want that experience of being in a world and yet none of these games feel like worlds, all just feel like games.

 You can still play the real SWG - SWG pre cu on another server far, far away.

Usually a steady number of 2k players online all the time.

We both were disappointed.

I can also poke myself in the eye at any point.

I even got that ability for free.

Doesnt mean I want to. Ever.

My first MMO for sure.  Which happens to have been Anarchy Online. 

 

I should have stuck with single player games because devs simply will never understand that while I love sharing a game world with other players and while I will interact with them when I feel like it, I will not be forced to do so in order to play the game, get the best gear, or be safe from constant ganking.  

 

I had some good years with MMOs, but it's not worth it.  If I had known then what I know now I would have saved myself a lot of frustration, not to mention money.

I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.

Although a couple of CEs could have been bought at a discount later............

I do my research too but for some reason I buy them even if I hate the beta, I dunno why but I keep seeing everyone saying glowing things so I think "there must be something good about it". Then the game comes out and suddenly it's massive hate and the game dies......... like hang on what happened to all the fanbois?

I know but the game is rather dated now as it is nearly 10 years on. Back in 2005 it still had so much potential but now it doesn't, it is all gone and the engine is horrible. They need to make another full blown Raph Koster game.
