Just curious, what is the one or two games that you regret buying and why?
Not games which you got from a bundle with other games (example- Fanatical or HB bundles/monthlies). Has to be single purchase which you bought separately. Also the reason why you regret buying, can't be "It got bundled later/There was a better sale after I purchased it" :P I hope I was able to explain it clearly. Excuse my bad english.
For me, its Fallout 4, which I bought during one of the Steam Sales. I read reviews on Steam and watched videos on YouTube before purchasing, which made me pretty skeptical. As I dislike knowing anything about the story, as it might spoil the fun of discovery, I skipped over all the story related sections of the reviews. Which was a huge mistake in hindsight. Needless to say, I hated the story.
LIGHT SPOILER WARNING and the reason why I hate it: I can't digest that a man/woman who lost his/her significant other, and then had their child taken from them, wouldn't go mad with rage (even though very little time was spent while building upto this event). Also Fallout's gameplay mechanic doesn't fit with the theme of the game. A father/mother collecting cans for upgrade, when they don't know what happened to their baby. The dialogue options doesn't help either, it says the same thing is 4 different ways. So there is no way to role-play either because you are force fed your lines.
I am not a father and I don't plan to be one in the near future. But I don't connect to the story at all. I know suspension of disbelief is crucial when playing a game, but only an asshole would go a year with doing side-quests and rebuilding entire towns when they have a baby dead/missing. And if you only do the main storyline, you miss out on good equipments, interesting side stories, cool places to see and being a low level character in the process. As a result I knew I wouldn't be able to enjoy the game either way.

AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity and AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome
Bought one of them because I redeemed my tickets for a dlc for it at the 2011 summer sale (imo the best sale, things went downwards from then on), thinking it would be a great game. Well, I was wrong; not my type of game; and since I'm utterly stupid I even bought the second one before trying the first...
Ark Survival Evolved. Played with a a couple of friends but I couldn't really get into it
Hearts of Iron 4 and Crusader Kings 2
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, but only because I bought it in the same week that it showed up in the latter part of the Humble Monthly and I had already played past it the refund point. :(
