Mega Man Anniversary Collection (GC). I got it because I wanted an introduction to the Mega Man series. Turns out the first 6 games are all the same and they're all hard. It's also awkward playing the games with the GC controller when they were designed for the NES/SNES controller.

Mega Man X: Command Edition (GC). My first Mega Man game. It's a stupid RPG with random encounters in an otherwise empty area. Plus, even on easy kills, Mega Man annoyingly says "Ahh. I did it." The boss battle warning is not for photosensitive people. I got it really cheap at a video store that was going out of business, so I just sold it at Gamestop and was through with it.

Starfox, man the hell up. Megaman is meant to be hard. Inverted buttons kill it a bit though.
Secondly; Maybe, but i am not sure, 'MetalArms Glitch in the system'. I mean it is a good game, I like it, but It is just awkward to play.

Spiderman and the X-men on Megadrive. That game was terrible, I got it cos it had spiderman in it.
Chakan - the foreverman on Megadrive would like to play it again, but I remember being so dissapointed when I played it first. Diddy Kong Racing N64, why didnt I just get Mario Kart 64!!

Colecovision collection for PS2, bought it just to see what games where like before MS and NES, one or two where ok, but the rest I didn't really care for, at least it was cheap.

Namco Museum 50th Anniversary for Gamecube -- barebones and some of the ports (Galaga) not up to scratch.

Defender for Gamecube -- no original game!!!??? The game is okay, but not special enough for me to bother plugging in controllers to boot into Gamecube mode.

Intellivision Lives! for Gamecube -- I never owned an Intellivision; now I know why...

Viewtiful Joe, Gamecube -- Nice game until the BS repeat boss run at the end. lame, Lame, LAME!

(PSX) Vandal Hearts 2, it wasn't even CLOSE to as entertaining as the first one was.

There he goes, Firkraag. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die. - My VGscore

Dragon's Lair on the C64, a good few years ago...urrgh!

I tried to take it back to WH Smith claiming it didn't work (I was sure it couldnt be that bad), but they would only exchange it for another copy (and it really was)... Also Virtua Quest on the Gamecube, that was surprisingly bad!

Also - agree with Sean there about Namco 50th on Gamecube - and it was badly optimised in PAL 50hz over here! Oh well, it did sometimes play Dexy's Midnight Runners on the menu screen, but thats a matter of taste I guess...

PSP.... Namco Classics..... lets just say Atari games are well left as memories.
GB..... Wario Land 2...... I thought it was 3 that wasn't great but its 2.
Think that is about it.

@Starfox..... I know your a younger gamer and the appeal of Mega Man and really difficult games has seem to be lost with the younger generation so I DO understand you not liking Mega Man but for us older gamers MAN I LOVE them.

@Sean Aaron..... Dude please do NOT hate on Vewtiful Joe, that game was a breath of fresh air for us 2D fanatics when it first came out. Its still one of my all time favorite game Ever, BUT the last boss did kind of get frustrating.

I purchased StarTropics and Zoda's Revenge recently for my video game collection. Both are horrible games. I didn't pay much but the fact is I had to pay SOMETHING for that trash so I regret that...and for thinking they belong in a video game collection.

I will stop hating on games that rehash boss battles when game developers stop making them!

Street Fighter 2. I wish I liked this one. I liked SF3, so I thought I'd try out the one before it. Nope, it just wasn't the same.

Now I'm waiting for Capcom Vs. Tatsunoko =D

Check out my classy comics.

For me, Jade Cocoon was the first game I bought when I got my PSX. I forced myself to play it through once, and that was it. I still have it, lol... I don't think I've touched it since 2000. :P
