That's possible or maybe you have no interest in the time period and geographical area? I know a lot of people who skipped on getting TW: Atilla simply because they had no interest in the Late Roman Empire era.

Interesting pick. What was it about the game that failed to grab you?

I haven't played Sniper Elite 4 but I did have one of the earlier offerings. Now I don't know about you guys,but as I get older I find I can no longer tolerate the graphic kills in games like Sniper Elite. I also avoided knife kills in BF,I just found it too gruesome. I also won't kill police so I avoid those sorts of games.

Anyway,I don't want to take this too off-topic,that's not the SimHQ way biggrin

I'm having trouble with the OP's topic though. I think it might have been Miscreated. An open world survival game that initially was pretty cool to play but I just couldn't make it work for me. I like open world survival type games but this one has no SP so I found that if I met other players they would usually just shoot me in the face,no questions asked.

I know I might be a bit controversial here but..I uninstalled the box series just a few days ago. The FM and DM for me are second to none but the A.I,cloud graphics and visibility of other aircraft at distance are poor.

I've put 100+ hrs in but usually after I see the AI do something incredibly stupid time and time again I've had to put it down for my own sanity haha.
It's a shame because it looks and flys beautiful at times,the career mode is well done but I've had enough of seen squadmates lawn dart,enemies turning circles constantly..I could go on but I won't.

I'm not bitter I've certainly had my money's worth but they really IMO need to get a A.I coder on board,if they could do some work on the A.I I'd certainly give it another shot.

I've not yet uninstalled it yet but I've pretty much abandoned Elite Dangerous. Not enough time to get into it and learn the mechanics of advancing.

I just got ED recently and it's really a fantastic game BUT you really have to put a lot of time into it if you want to get the most out of it. It's simply not a "sit down and go out and play quickly" type of game. For that you'll be much better off with something like the classic X-Wing and Tie Fighter games from Lucasarts.

The last SimCity game, whichever one that was - not so much for the game (which wasn't very good), but for the dumb EA "service" required to run on top of it.

Other that that, I'm like Blade - with so much HD space I just ignore rather than uninstall.

This is one of those games that I ONLY bought because of the cooperative multiplayer. In fact, it's also the only reason why I bought Far Cry 5. The coop is lots of fun but these games I find utterly boring to play in single player mode.

(Caveat - not really into multiplayer/online gaming, am a pure single/offline player)

Uninstalled in last year:

Borderlands 2 and Witcher 3: not sufficiently different to Fallout 4, which I still prefer and which mod DLC keeps alive (I guess I am an open world monogamist unless a game offers something hugely superior which is why I cracked and got a console for RDR2)

IL2 Great Battles and Cliffs of Dover: nice eye candy, aircraft variety and flight/weapon mechanics etc but AI still too dumb in both. Might go back to CoD if Team Fusion really can fix the AI in their version 5 release.

War Thunder: ground my way up to the top of the US and German tank trees, tried to find joy in online play, but lost the will to live along the way, gave away my hard earned key because tho I keep trying online shooters, I keep buying and then uninstalling them (Verdun, DayZ etc etc when will I learn)

Call of Duty WWII: semi-enjoyed the campaign but it was very short and had no replay value (much preferred Metal Gear Solid V campaign, prob because like Fallout 4 there is the option of multiple NPC 'companions' in battle, very replayable).

Interesting you mention Borderlands in your list because while I found the Borderlands games to be a LOT of fun in cooperative multiplayer, I found them to be utterly dull in single player.

And that is why he uninstalled the game as he is a SP.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Witcher III: the Wild Hunt was the last game I uninstalled.

Got a new, mildly awesome PC. Installed W3. Corrupted install. Uninstalled.

Reinstalled it too!

Did you mean to say that Witcher 3 was too similar to Fallout 4, or is there a cut and paste error in there somewhere?

I was wondering about that myself. Besides Fallout 4 and Witcher 3 both being in the RPG genre, I really don't see any other similarities at all.

Read this, go there, talk to her/him, kill this, find that, main quest, side quests ... repeat. One decent open world game is enough for me, gameplay too similar in all.

And not having played Witchers 1/2 I gave up very early on Witcher 3 (mission 4 or 5?) when I got into a long drawn out conversation with some guy who interrupted my bath to interrogate me about stuff that I was supposed to know about from previous games, then it got bogged down in choosing my uniforms and teaching me how to bow to a king (I bow for no man!), so I abandoned the main quest, went wandering and did a few side quests, got bored and quit and never went back. Uninstalled.

I don't uninstall because I need the disc space, I uninstall to reduce distraction. If there are 20 game icons of abandoned games on my desktop I find I quite often think 'maybe I should try that one again' but inevitably when I do, I reach the same conclusion as I did before and then think 'ah yes, that's why' and I've wasted a couple of hours. Simpler to just uninstall and move on. The world is full of other options!

I'm the same way. I can't stand clutter in any context.
