There are games I probably should have bought at release but didn't because I already had loads to play. They have since become quite hard to get hold of at reasonable prices, but I sort of enjoy the challenge!

I do not want to know how much I have spent on this franchise that I could have used on many better games. It's bittersweet.

Thankfully, though, I quickly got over myself after I actually played a few awesome PlayStation games.

Same here ... couldn't believe how bad I was when I look back at my (admittedly embarrassing) comments.

Wish the same could be said of some folks on here; it is absolutely absurd to be blindly loyal to one company.

Probably buying a Xbox 360 instead of a PS3.

agreed. I mean, I genuinely don't think I was quite as bad as some people since even when I got mad at my cousins for thinking Xbox was better than GCN, I fully knew it had some cool games I liked and I was always interested in playing PS1/2 when I could. I was more pro-Nintendo than anti-other companies if that makes any sense...

Not getting a PS3 sooner. That said waiting allowed me to get great games much cheaper so it wasn't all bad.

Maybe buying Paper Mario SS. They screwed that game up so bad..

I totally agree about the feeling. I stopped playing it about 6-7 hours into when I finally accepted that I just didn't care for it and I loved the Paper Mario series. Now I'm stuck with the digital version of it and can't resell it. Now I am very cautious which game I buy digitally...Like Animal Crossing and Brain Age Concentration Training (I knew I will be playing them for a long time so it made sense to go digital).

What ever happen to just liking games?
As a kid I mostly had Nintendo consoles but I wanted to play other consoles as well, but didn't have much money.
When video rental store was still a thing back then, they would let you rent a console for a week, so I would rented a PSOne, so I could play some of the vest amount RPGs and fighting games they had. I remember it was $12 to rent the console, and $5 to rent a game for a week, so I spent a lot of time trying to finish them quickly.

The weirdest thing was, I didn't care about "console wars" before then; I loved both the Genesis and the Super NES before I upgraded to the next gen, and I thought the Saturn looked really cool too. I don't quite know where my misguided PlayStation hate came from.

I just went through this odd, almost random phase where I became a massive tool that didn't want to play as many great games as I possibly could.

Ooh boy, this rings true with me.

Miyamoto on his desire to focus more on the (hard)core Nintendo fan.

[The casual] attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ [...] and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing.

Paper Mario Sticker Star is up there. I knew it was going to be different, but even at $20 I just could not like any part of that game. I could not enjoy any part of that one. Steel Diver is also up there. At $5 it was overpriced, and the period of time I spent on it was just boring. Spending money on Carnival Games was also a terrible mistake.

My biggest regret is NOT buying a Wii U at launch. If I had I could be one of the cool kids and bash it at any given opportunity.

Oh wow. Let's see...

Not buying Xenoblade when it was in print
Using the N64 for nothing but Pokemon games as a kid (although, to be fair, Pokemon Snap is still a really fun game)
Letting some of my rarer PS1 games get scratched up when I was younger
Opting for a 360 over a PS3 years back
My family opting for a Genesis over an SNES when I was a kid. I mean, I still enjoyed it, but my god, look at the difference in the quality of the games!
Not discovering a lot of great Atlus franchises until just this year

Digitally buying NSMB2...kinda wished I didn't, I'm stuck with it now.

Mine too, exactly! I would easily get money back for it selling online, but I'm stuck with it :( By far the worst Mario game I have ever played.

I mean, its not that bad...but after the Wii game, it kinda gets old...Dunno how the whole coin collecting theme thing got me into, lol.

Luck was on my side since it was my first NSMB game and they offered double the club Nintendo coins for the digital version.

If that's the case for you then get the U version...I'm thinking it'll have the same effect as the Wii version. For me it brought back Super Mario World memories for me. :p
(not sure if the U version will or not, but still go for it)

I stand by what I said, NSMB2 is a piece of garbage and a waste of money. New Super Mario Bros Wii U though... Awesome! They clearly put some effort into it. Best 2D Mario since Yoshi's Island.

It's Wario time Yaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!
