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 though to myself “What was the worst that could happen?” Well, allow me to regale you with a tale of how my blind faith lead me astray.

Something happened to QSF5.com on Friday. It wasn’t the usual server outage. Something happened over at the Bluehost servers which required restoration from backup. While a majority of the site was restored, it didn’t come away unscathed. A handful of pictures and modifications which were made on Thursday did not make it over to the resurrected website.

That had me thinking about backup and restore situations for my own things.
