    I don't get it.

    That'd make em pretty fun, eh?

    Crysis...it was meh, but BC2 I played the hell out of, lots of Team-work to be had.

    Farcry 2 Agree. I never bought it, but a complete waste of space that one. Painful.

    And the latter comment is exactly the main reason I don't use steam. Its great for many reasons, but if I ever want to sell the game (which 9 times out of 10 I do since I almost never replay a game) it just makes no sense to me. How have they been around this long without having implemented a system where you can sell your steam games to other steam users?

    Believe it or not, most people don't care about that. Some do, but the minority. It'd also cause so many issues due to the way Steams system is setup. You're not able to really return anything; so they can't give you money for nothing.

    Fallout 3 GOTY - Fallout 3 alone was pretty fun and I enjoyed the gameplay and main story, but when I played the DLC I uninstalled the game because I was so disappointed! Mothership Zeta was the catalyst... pure ****! The only good one was The Pitt.

    Gothic 4 - Not only does this game destroy what made the first 3 games good, but it should not even be considered an RPG. Dull combat, story, dialogue, characters... just a plain shallow RPG.

    Force Unleashed 2 - Repetitive combat, buggy, half-assed story, short, lame Yoda and Boba Fett implementations and unlikeable characters. Lucasarts' name is officially mud after this sequel. Maybe Bioware will redeem them.

    Modern Warfare 2 - Terrible game, 10000x worse then COD4.

    Counter Strike Source - Just seems its skill level is considerably less then 1.6.

    Games I regret ever buying include:

    Blur (PC) - The Xbox 360 version is much better IMO although the game itself is shallow as hell compared with Bizarre Creation's PGR series.
    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (PC) - Absolutely horrid game that is made ten times worst by a gamma bug that renders everything washed out and graphics settings that disable anti-aliasing on the highest detail!!!
    Singularity (PC) - Not terrible but depressingly generic and, thus, disappointing. The whole time travel concept is wasted IMO and the narrative is dull. No subtitles option either, tut, tut.
    Street Fighter IV (PS3) - OK, so I'll say now that I was never a fan of the original games in any way, shape or form but I bought this to see if my perception of the series had changed. It hadn't. While I accept that it is well coded (as with all recent Capcom games) and has depth, I just found it unbelievably dull to play. Hated it. Felt very dated and even the graphics annoyed me.
    Halo 3 (360) - A crushing letdown after the first two games on the Xbox plus it looked visually dated even back in 2007. Halo: Reach is a far better game IMO and is what Halo 3 should have been in the first place.
    Bionic Commando (PC) - Tiny levels, atmosphere ruined by loading screens every ten minutes, wonky controls, terrible level design, DX10 promised but never delivered; a complete waste of both my time and money. No wonder GRIN went bust...

    A lot of developers are guilty of that. Konami for example still haven't learnt how to add fullscreen 16:10 support for their Pro Evo Soccer games on the PC. You can have fullscreen at 1920x1200 but it's just a stretched 16:9 1920x1080 which obviously looks odd. I mean how hard is it to code for 16:10; it's just an aspect ratio for goodness' sakes! :bang:
