I'm sure each and every one of us at some point has bought the newest console or game and got sucked into the hype... only to find out it totally sucks. What have you guys bought that turned out to be terrible?
I've got two that come to mind:
Guitar Hero 2 - This was back in I want to say like 08-09. I'm not sure how or even why this started, but one day on a whim AC and I decided to head on down to the local EB Games and buy ourselves the two GH games (there were only two at the time) plus the plastic instruments. That came out to roughly $80-100 bucks each, and AC had to buy some cheapo 3rd-party wireless guitar. We got home and the damn controller didn't even work... should have been a red flag that this wasn't meant to be. So back to town to exchange it. The employee at the time gave us some serious attitude, assuming that we must be dummies that don't know how to work a controller. Finally we convinced him to just try it and lo and behold it still didn't work. Thankfully they had another one in the back that worked, so off we went on our merry way.
We played into the night really having a blast for the first night. The following day, we both picked up the guitars and kinda just shrugged. The magic was already gone. We pawned off the goods the next week if I remember right. To this date I haven't played a single GH game since. I 'played' Rock Band at a party once (although it hardly counts as I was... well, not sober at all). What a waste of time and money.
Playstation 4 - This is much more recent. I bought this thing exclusively for MGS under the assumption that between the purchase date and release date of MGS there would be some solid games to play. Here I am more than a year later and I still haven't bought a single additional PS4 game. MGS is coming out this September, but it's coming out for PC too so I'll just get it for that. I almost got Destiny but decided to hold off and wait for what people were saying. I played the Alpha and it was alright, but it didn't really improve up to release. The free PS+ games are alright, but usually available on other systems. Also my subscription ran out, so now I can't even play 'em!
So here I am now with what boils down to a $400 blu-ray player. Which is stupid because I already had a PS3 to do that. The upcoming Uncharted game might be good, but besides that there hasn't been a single game to really get me hooked.
