A Samsung flat screen TV that wasn't HD ready bought in a time HD TVs were still not the majority. Paid it a lot and I'm still stuck with it.

Watch Dogs - A disappointing game.

An PS3 Silm - I've brought it back in 2011 and I've haven't used it much since then.

Now moving on to life stuff.

Model Cars - They just sit on the shelf looking dusty.

Gta 5 doesn't have the replay value of older gta games and it tries to pull you into the online crap.

All the useless sh*t I have scattered all around my house. I had a consumerist phase years ago which now I regret about. It's stressful to have that many crap you don't need around you.

Yard sale or something?

Sunglasses, lots and lots of sunglasses. I'm pretty much a hoarder ehen it comes to that sorta stuff, I've got about 6 pairs I've never worn. It doesn't help that they weren't exactly cheap.

Surgeon Simulator 2013. I didn't even buy it because I thought it would be good good, but because I thought I would get a good laugh out of its wackiness. I did not. Should probably mention I bought it on a sale for like 2 dollars. Thankfully.

The Xbox 360.

I'm sorry, but what? It's one of the worst decisions I've ever made. 

 

There are just so many things wrong with this piece of sh*t.

Damn. 

 

It wasn't very recent but I still regret buying a chess set off Craigslist that was made of sandstone. The pieces are rather cool looking, but it's too clunky and cumbersome to play with, and it's quite heavy. Don't have enough space to put it on display, so it's always packed up in a box, and it's heavy, and a pain in the ass to move (not difficult to move a heavy box, but it's a just a heavy box that cost me money).

There was this Early Access game on Steam. I've did some research on Google/YouTube regarding it, but once purchased, it wasn't what I expected. I gave it multiple chances, but it just didn't feel like something I could enjoy "learning". Their forum is far from helpful either. 

 

0/10 would not buy again. 

 

or as IGN would say

 

10/10 would not buy again.

£200 bowling ball that I've had for 2 years and thrown 3 games with. It does completely the opposite of what I intended to buy it for.

Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD is another terrible purchase I made.  I guess I just wanted to own it since I'm a huge RE fan, but it's an awful game, so it's not like I'm going to actually continue playing it.  I'd just be putting myself through hell.

I regret purchasing my Canon SX600HS. I'm not going to lie, it simply wasn't worth the two hundred fifty dollar pricetag. An old and used DSLR would've been much better. I want to sell it and buy a Canon EOS Rebel T3i with a polarizer.

Black ops 2, that damn game was fun and all but it messed up my ps3 and now I have to download my games on it. Also not going to fix it because I'm just going to end up getting a ps4 so fixing it is pointless.

Pro tip: Never buy a laptop if you're going to do serious gaming on it.

I don't think I've ever bought anything and regretted it.. I'm a slight hoarder for things. My garage is filled to the brim with all kinds of sh*t.. some still in packaging, some never used. If I won't use it, someone will some day.

 

However, I have spent little money on some mobile games that I played for about a week and then uninstalled, if I regret anything, it's probably the few bucks I've spent on those.

Never buy a laptop for gaming. Always go for desktops.

-PS2 slim. I wish I had bought an original SCPH-30001 like I used to have instead.

 

PS2 slims blow man. Mine died in two years.. I got a refurbished "phat" model system from GameStop and it still works.

 

Look, i bought a PS2 slim after my original PS2 died in a natural disaster in 2005.  9 years later, that ps2 still works.  It's outlived about 5 xbox 360's, which i gave up on in 2009.  

 

 

As far as regret.. i try not to regret anything, especially purchases.  material is material after all eventually we will lose our material possessions at some point if i have something i can't use i sell it, to try to get at least a lil bit of money.  If i can't sell it i'll donate it or give it to family.

 

I guess the closest thing money wise would be, I bought a car that didnt run when i graduated high school, 500 bucks.  I spent months slaving over it, eventually investing way more into it than it was worth.  Many hours of labor, junkyard visits, and busted and bleeding knuckles commenced.  I ended up finally getting it running, sold for 450$.  I didnt get my moneys worth, especially time and parts invested in it.. hell no.  but what i gained in knowledge is something that was worth far more, i know how to do a lot of things to cars i would have otherwise never known.  Now i save money on visits to the shop when smaller things break  :^:
