With physical copy of a game, I can simply resell it if I don’t like it. I’ve done that plenty of times already. I played the game, I thought it was fun, but I just didn’t think it was good enough to keep in my catalog. Unfortunately, you’ll most likely have to take a loss which means the game is either sold with bitterness or kept on the shelf. Digital distributed games remain in my catalog as a constant reminder of your poor judgement.
So with that in mind, here’s this week’s checkpoint: a list of games (in no particular order) which I’ve regretted purchasing or not letting go.
Calling All Cars
From PSN for about $13
The reason I purchased this was because of David Jaffe’s involvement — the man made God of War and Twisted Metal! I’ve played it online and enjoyed the time I spent with it, but it just didn’t stay on the list of regularly played games due to the lack of longevity. How long did it take before the game stopped being played online? 3 weeks? I’m not sure, but it felt like that.
