What's something vidya related you wish you never did?
I have a 140 hour save in Final Fantasy 13, on my Xbox 360. Never finished the game either. I'm considering replaying it on PC, too. I hate this game.
I played the entire Mass Effect Trilogy start to finish at least 3 times. I finished ME3 I think 6 or 8 times.
I hate everything about those games. From the writing, to the charactes, to the universe.
At least I pirated the entire thing.
>try to play it on Steam because, hey, I can't safely criticize the game's worth unless I do it
>no meaningful resolution options to speak of
>silky smooth 10 FPS for no particular reason other than incompetent coding
The damn thing is really not making a good first impression.
As for your question OP, I really wish I hadn't sunk as much money into Hearthstone as I did. Turns out I have a weakness for buying card packs only to get completely rammed in by the luck of the draw.
Alternatively, I wonder why the hell I've put 458 hours into Borderlands 2
That game is like 40 hours long at most. How could you possibly play it for so long without finishing it? Why would you be considering playing it again on a different platform if you hate it? Why would you even play a game you hated for that long?
>458 hours in borderlands 2
jesus christ. i hope you had been playing that with friends or something.
How much have you spent on digital cards? I payed for all 3 expansions and probably 60 or 70 packs.
I still have only ever opened like 4 legendaries, and all of them were shit.
Meanwhile my friend opens 7 packs an gets 4 legendaries, one of which is dr boom and one of which is a golden legendary.
I have no idea.
I think I wanted to obtain a complete overview of the games to truly call them shit. Now, I drew the line at the Citadel DLC, but I did play the entire thing beside.
40 hours? Felt like 90 man, I kept playing it on and off and then my file disappeared one day.
So I played it again, got to the 40-60 hour mark and then I gave up. By then the story had become so convoluted and the characters were so out of character that I just gave up. I was enraged.
and I thought I had a lot with 150
Did we play the same game? I felt the story was really straight forward to the point of being generic and I certainly don't remember anyone acting radically out of character. I'm also certain that you would have finished the game by the 50 hour point because it really isn't all that long. Instead of starting it again why not just finish the last couple of hours and be done with it?
I have only bought the first expansion [and Naxxramas], because I thankfully realized how insane it was to spend money into a game I was not enjoying instead of using it to buy more vidya. I'm pretty sure I bought something around 120 across my playtime, at least.
One of my first packs yielded me a Golden Ysera though. I was very happy with it.
Never any Jaraxxus though, which is terrible because I used to stick with Warlock religiously.
I guess part of the reason I stopped playing was because there weren't any viable Warlock decks apart from maybe Demonlock that ever felt "warlock-ey" enough.
I have a remarkably high tolerance for bad writing, and I dare to say I had fun with the mindless leveling up until reaching endgame and having every enemy stat inflated enough that they felt like they were firing bullets made of anti-matter. And now I can barely stomach the thought of looking at it.
Handsome Jack was a waste of potential character though. Screw Burch
I know that feel, OP. I played the game up to somewhere in chapter 11 or 12, but I couldn't handle it anymore and I sold it. A year later I bought the game again for 20 dollars because I couldn't stand leaving it unfinished. I finished the game and eventually platinumed it. I really don't care about trophies/achievements at all. I swear to you, I hate FF XIII.
All of my Skyrim hours. I hated TES before, I hate it now, Skyrim just sucked me in like it did all the casuals.
Fuck, I could've been that one bastard who never touched Skyrim in my circle. Goddammit Todd.
Thing is with me, I'm generally slow at anything I do. Take that new Mario and Luigi game. I put 50 hours into that game and struggled at the final boss fight. I gave the same game to one of my nephews and he finished it in 30 hours and now occasionally replays the final boss for fun.
I see you folks literally pour hundreds of hours of games that I can only put a quarter into. In this case, you can finish this game in 50 or so hours, but it took me more than 100 hours.
I got to the third disc where the crew made it into this sort of building after running from a rebellion(?). I don't remember, all I remember was being amazed by how differently everyone was acting up to that point. It was so surreal from the last 100 or so hours that I gave up.
Great music, but good lord I hope 15 isn't like this.
I got drunk while playing Bloodborne for the first time. Put in a few hours. When I sobered up and tried to pick up where I left off, I had no fucking clue where I was or what to do.
Didn't play it again for weeks.
I'm very sorry Anon, I have failed you.
I refuse to believe that. There are only like 80 unique amiibo. There's not even that many fucking DI figures. I don't even think there's that many skylander figures. Why would you ever have or want more amiibo than there were pokemon in the first generation
Waste money on games for women over the years.
>Break up halfway through a co-op game
I wish I never sung along with the Altantica level in KH2.
I've done it twice, browsing and downloading, installing, testing, tweaking. I've spent continues weeks in missing that game, but I never really wind up playing it. I just mod, I think "dis gone be gud!", and I get as far as Whiterun and just burn out.
Ironically, the only time I've between that game was when I had it for the PS3.
Modding Bethesda games sometimes turn out to be a more enjoyable experience than the playing of the game itself. There's something cathartic about picking and choosing features you never even know you wanted but that once you find out about them you suddenly wonder how you could've played until then without them. And then comes the time to play the game, and all willingness to just... ceases.
Hell, back in Oblivion I used to erase entire characters and start anew just because I suddenly found out about some mod that I wanted to experience from the very beginning. Multiple times.
I wish I never lost my DS case that had like 13 games in it. Even if I were to replace the games, which buying new would cost an assload, you can't replace all the time and effort that went into them.
started playing it in the first place
I put 600 hours into CS: GO over the course of only a couple of months back in 2014 and probably a few hundred dollars into opening fucking weapon skin crates for it. I ultimately gained nothing from that experience, I don't know why I went full autism over it like that, it's not even a good shooter. Anyone who says it's competitive or requires skill is lying, deluded, or hasn't played enough to see the truth as I have.
I've done this more times than I can count. Another hobby of mine seems to be getting drunk, installing a game, and then not touch it at all. Or buying games I don't even want in the morning.
Christ, I gotta quit this shit.
Yeah. Start a new game of Fallout or whatever and get drunk. Realize the next day that my characted has retarded equipment, leveled all fucked up and made stupid ass decisions. Then, have to scrap the whole character.
1,637 hours into apb reloaded and 5.4k into it. It turns out I have a gambling problem and the Joker boxes ate so much money. Please. Look away. If not for your sake then for mine.
>1,637 hours into apb reloaded and 5.4k into it.
Do provide additional context so I can be sure you're saying what I think you're saying.
when i was kid i would throw away all my ps1 cases and put the games into a big CD binder so i could bring to the neighbors easier.
have some rare original release games that are caseless.
>thinking back on how much of a faggot i was.
the idea of someone spending that much money on digital goods bothers me in a way i can't put into words.
I mean...I guess it's a pretty decent game at the end of the day but...fuck, man.
2200 hours into mwo over 3 years
>a quarter of my life was spent on a free to play robot game for 3 years
I kept replaying Bloodstone only because I thought the CQC was pretty sweet.
>I spent too much fucking time in that damn Casino level.
Posted this before, but
>3,000 hours in TF2
>$150 spent in Spiral Knights(when it wasn't COMPLETE shit)
Feel free to laugh.
just got back from being out but basically it all started when i wanted a car. You see the joker boxes offer chances to get cool stuff. My thought process was oh 1 box a week or a dollar a week and i can afford that . so i started off simple. got some premium membership the first 2 weeks. the 3rd week. The 3rd week i got a rare gun. a gun that was op as all fuck. then i thought "well hell, if my luck is like that i can probably get more rare stuff and sell it for better things and things i want in game". so some weeks pass by and im buying 5 boxes or about 7 bucks worth of stuff a week. not to bad all in all. then it hits. I get my car but the day i do get it. They announce a new joker box with another car. naturally i think fuck i want that car. so i thought. if i could get what i wanted in about 3 months then i can surely get it faster if i do it in bigger quantities. next thing you know each week im spending about 50 bucks on virtual lottery boxes. get nothing but premium or maybe a rental gun. then i get mad. go WELL FUCK IM GETTIN THAT CAR. then in 1 week mind. in literally a 12 minute span. i spend about 400 dollars on nothing but boxes. best part. i got nothing but premium days. the premium days come in either 3 days or 10 days. the last time i logged on was back in i want to say may of last year. back then i had about 2100+ days of premium left. after that it basically escilated so that in about a month i spent around 1.8k. that is how many boxes i opened. take heed anons, do not fall for what i did. for it is a shame that i shall take for me to the grave
oh and before i forget i have no idea how i spent 1,637 hours on apb reloaded. to this day i do not know what i saw in that game. maybe the customized music i had going while i was driving around? Maybe it was that i was so good (it was the p2w guns i got from the boxes) that i was part of ACES which was pretty big back then, and maybe its because through it all i made a couple of friends. or maybe its because something in it triggered a level of autism and soul sucking hellish desire that it actually convinced me to bring friends into the folds of the game. When it went onto steam i even recommended it. I still do not live down this shame to this day.
>I pre-ordered the collectors edition Total War: Attila
>I only have 20 hours in the game, never finished a campaign
>That 20 hours was all done in the first month of release
>I have yet to touch it again
>Spite all this I have still proceeded to buy every single DLC released for it and never play it
For whatever the sympathy of a stranger in the Internet is worth Anon, I hope you are doing well.
Godspeed, and all that.
>tfw I got over 100 hours out of payday 2 since friends wanted to play it but I still thought it was kinda shitty
its only just now that they finally got sick of that shit
i take solace in the fact that literally i can now spot shit like that from a mile away. I no longer have to deal with insane shit like that and most of the games i do play are either single player, or involve no micro-transactions. its a small beacon of light in an otherwise dark ordeal, but its a light none the less.
99% still moon rune of course
the rest already on english
I actually liked FF13 and I never spent that kind of ridiculous time on it.
I've dropped money on things I don't like. Plenty of times. But when I realise that I don't like it or that it's not for me - I stop pretty promptly.
I bought both Operation Racoon City and Hardline for full price on release I still don't know what I was thinking
Please anons, I just want to die
Please kill me and end this runescape garbage
Thanks Nama-sensei, also you fucked up so bad with Operation Raccoon City. But I liked Hardline quite a bit for the 30 hours or so that I played it, but totally not enough to spend $60 on it, I'm sorry for that.
Iv played the entire Halo series a total of 11 times chronologically
Halo Wars = 2 times, Heroic
Halo Reach = 3 times, Legendary
Halo 1 = 2 times, Legendary
Halo 2 = 4 times (1 was an enitre non-stop 7 hour run through with my friends), Legendary
Halo 3 = 3 times, Legendary
Halo 4 = 1 time, Heroic (co-op only)
Halo 5 = 1 time, Heroic
its just my favorite game series
Resident Evil Zero remake soon friend, that's something...
I've never been able to enjoy a horror game since none of it scares me or captivates me for long[/spoiler
I hit a PS4 controller into the woods behind my house because some faggot no-scoped me in the head six times in a row in a single game of Destiny PvP. I stopped playing FPS games after that because they infuriate me when I do poorly.
Now I stick to fightan' games and other genres where fucking up is my own fault every time, so crazy MLG RNG back to back noscope shit like that doesn't aggravate me so much.
Not me and I don't think he regrets but one of my friends back in High School has completed 50+ playthroughs of Fable 2.
The only thing he has never done is not drink the sex change potion
*hit with a baseball bat, forgot to clarify
Yeah, that's what I usually do, but I may have been on adderall at the time which would have certainly boosted my overall irritation and made me lose my cool. My brother gets pretty angry too, though, and has broken several controllers over vidya. Naturally, I'm super cool-headed, but yeah, shit like that destroys me.
I bought 2 versions of the same game because my sister was borrowing one at college
this was after knowing that anyone can pirate 3ds games, but I was too lazy and just wanted to play my game
You can never own too many copies of a good game.
I have no excuse other than sunken cost fallacy and being a fucking loser at that time.
it was a very hard learned lesson about how to be responsible with money like an actual adult.
over 6600 hours in TF2.
I played from 2007 to 2014, competitive and all that from 2010, but a lot of pubbing. It's pretty much the only game I played for all those years.
I regret it because I wasn't really enjoying it for years, I just couldn't put it down.
I played FFXIII-2, Ass Creed 3, and Borderlands 2 all to completion, back-to-back, while extremely depressed.
>not a fan of fallout at all
>proceeds to clock in around 200 hours on FO3 and NV respectively
>"how did ya like fallout?"
I was just fuckin bored
when I couldve been doing literally anything else productive. Now i've got close to 800 hours on warframe and i dont plan on slowin down
Personally, my only regret about TF2 is that I haven't played more of it
I will say, in people's defense, that TF2 looks like a very simple game from the outside, but once you get into it you realize that it has a lot of depth to it. There's enough content to make sure that you can always switch off of what you're doing and do something completley different in the game and still have fun, but I digress.
For whatever reason, I never regret putting an inordinate amount of time into any game, because I'll only play it if I'm having fun. Hell I put a few hundred hours into Too Human, and I'm pretty sure I'm one of only a handful of people who actually enjoyed that game. I just have one of those personalities that lets me keep the magic alive I guess.
Can't get into MMO kind of stuff whatsoever though, which seems weird all things considering, but it is what it is.
If I have any regrets, it's making deals with my friends to get them to buy games with me. Sometimes we'll end up doing things where they go, "Ok, Anon, I'll get this game to play it with you if you get this game and play it with me." and 95% of the time I know I'm gonna end up hating the game and I do it anyway.
I should just stop being retarded and just buy them the games I want them to play with me and tell them to shove their shitty games up their asses instead of wasting my time and money on something I know I'm not gonna enjoy.
