One of the first games I played on my PS3 was the original Assassins Creed, which I really, really enjoyed at the time. But for one reason or another, I only got about three or four hours into it before getting sidetracked by something else.

Now, years later, I've picked it up again to finally finish it...but...I can barely play it for half an hour before putting down the controller out of boredom. I have a hard time figuring out what I ever saw in this game.

Have you had a similar experience with a game in your collection? Love it at first, come back to it later and dislike it?

Red Dead Redemption.

Ha, that's the exact opposite of what I thought. It was alright at first but got progressively better in my opinion. On topic, Modern Warfare 2 and Far Cry 2 are the first games to come to mind.

Red Dead Redemption multiplayer. At first I thought it was kinda cool, but over time I just got frustrated and it became really boring with no story to keep you going.

I agree with Assasin's Creed. I was in to it for a little while but I quickly got bored.

I liked Assassin's Creed well enough, but AC2 made the first game absolutely unplayable by comparison. Same with Saints Row. First game was decent, but in hindsight it's crap, simply because of a vastly superior sequel.

Most every FPS with MP. Halo's slow paced and bland. CODs is unbalanced with zero dev repore / community support. (no community support equals a big **** you from Activision/IW/Trey in my book) KZ2 controls suck (its not a debate) and full 32 player servers lag bad, plus the Assault class. BC2 becomes a hassel cause people camp and do nothing as they snipe and pad thier stats. I'm passing up all the big names this year Reach, COD, MoH. Mad as hell Crysis 2 got delayed...

AC2 - about half way through it i got tired of it.

Little Big Planet - sometimes i find creating weird contraptions therapeutic but after a few levels i wondered whats the point! no one cares about your levels...they just want you to heart theirs so you will do it back.

Because the game is so damn BIG. I just gave up. I spent more time walking, driving, and running than actually doing something. Bored me right out of the game.Shame since I was so looking forward to this when it first came out.

I liked "BioShock" while I was in the store, and the walk home... but then I got it out of the case and tried playing it...

... to this day, the WORST money I've ever thrown away on a game, since 1977 when I started. "Pong" was more engaging, and 1000x more fulfilling than that piece of excrement. I'd rather have a colonoscopy with an outboard engine propeller.

I'll admit, I do miss the old-school shooters. As cool as it is to have all these options for weapon customization, killstreaks, emblems/tags, etc, sometimes I would just like to strip all that crap away and have it be me vs. whoever, not me vs. airstrike, sentry gun, chopper gunner, hearbeat sensor...etc.

Red Dead Redemption and Brutal Legend come to mind.

I was really into both at first, especially RDR, then I just stopped playing them. I just can't muster up any enthusiasm to play either one anymore. Can't really put my finger on why this happened, as I actually think both games are good, I just don't seem to want to play them.

GTA 4. I beat it but never touched it again after I did. Not even for the multiplayer. Game just left me unsatisfied for some reason.

Glad to oblige!!!

And CoD2 was SO great... played that game right up until about a year ago!!! The last even-setting shooter of it's kind. Both teams had great guns and everyone was on an even playing surface from the start of the round... Quality. Days I spent in "Canyon" or "Cassino"... good times, GOOD TIMES.

I've got to say: I'm surprised how many people are mentioning RDR. I was way into that game until the very last mission.

However, I can see how it might have gotten kind of old while your constantly doing missions just to find your old gang 'buddy', meanwhile all the mission givers are totally using you just to achieve their own ends. That did get a bit annoying after a while, but I still thought the gameplay was very fun and engaging.

I guess it's not everyone's cup of tea though.

LBP, Its just boring by yourself and online can be a pain cause of load times and poorly made levels. Its just 100 times funner with other people right there with you.

I agree with him, all the killstreaks and perks nonsense got to be so annoying. That and a million other things about that pos game. The tiny maps combined with the cracked-out gameplay is utter GARBAGE !!

Red Dead Redemption, Modern Warfare 2, Fallout 3.

Uncharted 2 i beat the story then a month or two later went back to play through it again and just stopped barely 20 minutes in, i was so bored.

GTA4, went back when the dlc was released and thought it was horrible, prolly since i was use to smoothness of u2 aiming.

Wow. What's with all the RDR comments about? I finished the story and I still play it cuz theres so many other missions to do.. (stranger missions)

But in a way.. yeah, it's kinda meh for me but that's what we think of games that we finish right? :D
