    With all the excitement of the Wii's release, I am sure some of us went crazy and bought some questionable games, and were a bit disappointed to shell out 50 dollars for a game that just sits there now, thinking it'd be something spectacular.

    Anyone have a game they bought, and wish they didn't?

    When the Wii was pretty new and didn't have a large library of games, my brother bought 'WarioWare: Smooth Moves'. A friend of mine said it was a great game ... and we believed him.

    The moment my brother started playing, I was getting nervous and started yelling at the screen because the game was so bad. I felt insulted as a Nintendo customer and I will never trust the Nintendo seal of quality again.

    My brother sold the game on ebay and got a fair amount of money for it.

    I will never buy a Wii game that solely consists of minigames.

    I'd have to agree, I was kind of shell-shocked with the Wario. The first half hour I was like "Why am I shaving a beard, or zipping a zipper?" But I think once you get over it's extreme Japanese format, it becomes something quite entertaining, and hilarious to watch friends play.

    None.
    I only buy what I know is a good game or can be counted on to be good like Zelda and Metroid etc.

    I rent ones or read some reviews on ones I am not sure about, maybe you should as well.

    My games are Zelda Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 3, Resident Evil 4 and Umbrella Chronicles as well as Super Mario Galaxy.

    Mario Party 8 was a HUGE let down for me

    I bought it knowing the mario party series has always been great

    Unfortunately, it seems the series reached it's peak with #7

    SSX Blur - Well, at the time of purchase I didn't really research this and just thought 'oh yeah snow boarding w00t'. It was enjoyable at times but overall poor.

    I got my Wii at realease and also a copy of Far Cry, that was a complete let down. The gameplay was ok, but it was just a half assed port and overall dissappointing.

    I can't believe you poeple don't like SSX Blur, is it because you don't like it, or you just can't figure it out. I know when I first got it I was somewhat upset because of what it takes to do uber tricks, but once I got the hang of it I loved it and I still play, have been playing it since it released. And Graphically it is pretty good as well, maybe you have to be a fan of the SSX series who knows.

    I bought Spy Games: Elevator Mission as an impulse buy. Save your money. I just wanted a shooter that wasn't World War related. I'm getting Far Cry today for the same reason and because it's only 20 bucks. Hope I like it better than ElronMac!

    Icandy, it's not as terrible as I let on honest, for $20 it's actually probably a pretty good deal but I paid $50 on release day and I was let down. But I did get a decent trade in for it at EB so it wasn't all bad. Plus if you like FPS action games it does have a decent story.

    The only Wii game I regret buying is WiiPlay. I should have just bought an extra Wii Remote for $40 and saved the extra $10 for some VC games. The game started collecting dust 1 week after it's February purchase.

    Yes...:yesnod: I will never do that either. I hated Wario Ware, my freind let me borrow it and i thought it was dumb. But I know that there are many people who would enjoy this game...

    I was excited to play Mario Party 8 (it came with our Gamestop bundle) but thought it was awfully boring. If I wanted to play a board game, I'd just play a board game!

    The day after I got the Wii I just wanted to buy a game, so being a fan of Sims 2 on the PC I picked up Sims 2 Pets. SUCKED!! I wound up selling it on Ebay less than a week later. Also learned how to rent games before buying from that experience.

    I know I'll take heat for this, but I didn't like Zelda at all. It sounded and looked so great, but it was just too hard for me I guess. I'm too uncoordinated, I just ran around and around in circles and then sent it back to Gamefly. *sniff sniff*

    Biggest DELIGHTS have been Super Paper Mario, Super Mario Galaxy, and Metroid Prime 3! I've never been able to play Mario on other consoles, and Metroid looked too hard (in fact the dude at Walmart took one look at me and said it would be too hard for me), but I managed to scrape by and have fun.
