Regrets In Our Gaming Lives?
Regrets are part of our lives. No matter how much one tries to avoid these instances in our everyday living; we’re bound to find them and they like to creep up on us from the most unexpected of sources. As much as I’d like to talk about a great vista consisting of monuments erected from the very basic forms of regrets, I’d rather leave that for another time seeing as how this is a gaming website and not a corner to discuss every single smidgen of each dark happening to take place in our lives. Therefore I’d like to take this time and talk about the different regrets to take place in our gaming lives.
These may not be regrets spawned from as much sources as found within our existence, but regrets are bound to surface – no matter where one is to look.

A friend and I spoke the other day about some of the regrets we’ve experienced in gaming and surprisingly these regrets revolved mostly around trading in some of our most beloved games to buy another game we so desperately craved for at the given point in time.
Not too long ago I traded in quite a few games to help and urge along my purchase of Dishonored. I’ve not once regretted my time with Dishonored and I’m quite the enthusiast about the game and the lore it contains, but I do miss some of the murder that came from whacking someone with a walloping purple dildo. (That’s Saints Row 3 for the people who have yet to play it. It is not some fetishistic gratification I gain from doing the aforementioned act for real.) I honestly feel as though I could’ve given the game at least one more playthrough. Lollipop Chainsaw was also among the games that was traded in and although I did do everything possible in that game, be it achievements or unlockables – I do long for more rainbows and stars to spew from fallen enemies.
Another game I traded in some time before those for another game that has currently slipped my mind was Grand Theft Auto IV. I honestly don’t know why I did that. (Stupidity would be my guess.) The only reason for my trading of Grand Theft Auto IV must’ve been out of desperation for some unknown hankering for another game with softer thighs.
Other regrets may include the purchase of a game itself. My one and most probably only candidate would be Duke Nukem Forever. I traded that game in before I even finished it and that is truly saying a lot. You see, I have this deal with myself about first finishing a game before commencing final judgement, but old Duke made me break my one sacred rule.
Which brings me to ask you about your regrets found in the realms of gaming?
