Marvel Vs Capcom 3.

It fucking sucks, it disappointed me on every front, and the online is just simply terrible.

Medieval II-Total War-for those who can play it I'm sure it's wonderful, but I have no idea how to.

Portal is probably one I won't play again.  I've been through the game and genuinely enjoyed it.  But to listen to critics and fans gush on and on and on about it got annoying.  When I kept seeing it over 9 months after the fact, I said 'Enough's enough.  It was very good but no game will ever merit this."

Welcome to every first person shooter ever :P I'd actually say the Half Life series does more different in one shooter series then most other series do in a year, simply because of the range of situations, and lets face it, adding a fun level with a cool gameplay twist is a lot easier then totally reinventing shooter mechanics with each new release :P

Yeah, they repeat shit like the see-saw puzzle and the slow elevator, but name for me 3 other first person shooters with the same level variety. How many other games do you have to fight your way through packs of ground enemies to get a bomb on a slowly moving siege machine, when its a massive open area with multiple siege machines and multiple pathways, and the enemies are programmed to destroy your bombs, and you also have a vehicle for transport and any buildings you could hide in are completely destructible.

Or what about sneaking through war torn junkyards to get behind a set of suppressing turrets? Or helping humans fight off increasingly tough waves of bugs with placeable turrets and mines? Or battling through a hospital that is already engaged in a 2 sided war? Only Halo does that last one :P

Sorry if I seem confrontational, I just can't stand people insulting Half Life for silly reasons like "It's the same as other shooters". Its not. Anyone whose listened to the dev commentary knows its not.
I don't say Half-Life sucks, I say that Valve needs to do something other than FPSs because despite the variety it has lost its innovative edge in that genre. Hell Crysis is just as variant when you actually get down to brass tacks. Bulletstorm kind of looks promising on that whole variant thing too. I'm just saying Valve should try something new. Maybe just a new genre. Do a fantasy FPS or something. I dunno'.

The game I will never play again sits on my shelf mocking me.  I look at it and plan its death but.. I fear it has become sentient.  So I will whisper the game I will never play again. 

Superman Returns for the XBOX 360.  Shhh...

Is Superman even interesting enough as a character? I mean, I've never been much of a comic fan, basically limiting myself to Batman and Alan Moore, so I may be missing something, but Superman just seems terribly ... flat and dull. I mean, not completely flat, but he seems to lack any sort of tragedy and ... real weakness.

They tried giving him some tragedy (last survivor of a doomed planet), and some weakness (although the amount of Kryptonite that ended up on Earth would make Krypton larger than Jupiter).  Batman is just someone that more people can identify with; he doesn't have super strength, super speed, or anything like that.  He makes do with wits and what he can bring with him.  Okay, he's rich, and can afford the really kick-ass car/boat/jet/helicopter/gadget-of-the-week, but he's just this guy, ya know?

I'll never play Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn again; not that it was a bad game, quite the contrary.  It's one of my all time favorites, falling in right below Zelda and Xenogears.  It's just that it was so damn long, and I don't have the time to sink into it like I used to anymore.  It's really a shame, because I always wanted to try a solo run through, but now I can't bring myself to commit to it.

Thats why I say Frank castle is the most human of the characters out there.   He loses it all, gets no justice, snaps, and makes the justice that he should have been given.  He wasnt rich, didnt need gadgets, just the human drive to get it done.

Actually I suppose I should add WoW to my own list now. Dumped 13k gold and a whole bunch of gems, herbs, minerals and other materials in my old raiding guild's bank, cleared pretty much everything out that was worth clearing, and I'm done with it. It was a good run, but...it ended badly. :|

Two Worlds: Just an all round bad game in general I thought. The plot was extremely predictable, and the item system kind sucked. I mean, you could grind through enemies for an hour, collect 100+ of an item and make a super charged version more powerful than anything in the game that far in.

Fable (All): I have yet to play Fable 3 but from my prior experiences I can gather the following
Play Fable -> good game
Beat Fable -> wtf did I just play?
Play Fable 2 -> Good game
Beat Fable 2 -> damn it they got me again!

Perfect Dark Zero: This game made me hurt on the inside. I loved the first one, was one of my first N64 games and my first shooter (I didn't like 007 ok). The story was completely turned around and the 'end boss' was terrible.

Diablo 2: I congratulate Blizzard for making a great game in its own right, I simply just don't like it. That and my mouse does have a limit to how many times I can click the bloody thing before it shatters.

Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier ..... a horrible disgrace to the previous three games (not counting Jak X, as I haven't played it), which are among the best games I've ever played. A total waste of money, that was.

I wasn't very interested in Superman until DCUO. Taking him as your mentor means you get to save his ass from the fate depicted in the trailer, Lex killing him. They also try to humanize him a bit, giving him other weaknesses, sort of. Heroes actually have to save Smallville and the Kent farm from a LL experiment with Doomsday DNA and excobyte tech, notably without the ILA since only excobyte exposed people are immune to the effects.
