the description for this list we’re
looking at the most disappointing
collector’s editions video games have
ever received whether it be because of
number 10 enemy zero 1996 limited
edition enemy zero obviously not the
worst on this list but probably the
creepiest enemy zero is a survival
horror adventure game released for the
often forgotten Sega Saturn in 1996 so
it’s understandable if you don’t
remember it ok let’s go what is most
memorable about it however is it’s
highly exclusive collector’s edition for
the price of $1,700 you could get one of
20 literal crates of goodies
hand-delivered to you by the game’s
director Kenji Eno it came with some of
the expected items like a t-shirt and an
in-game weapon replica what’s landing it
on this list is the incredibly gross
enemy model that came with bodily fluids
and the exact leather outfit worn by the
games booth girls from the Tokyo Game
number nine call of duty world at war
collector’s edition call of duty world
Call of Duty has known several
worthwhile collector’s editions that
feature exciting trinkets but this
surely isn’t one of them
for this 2008 release the collector’s
edition came with a logo engraved
canteen this would have been a decent
collectible if it could actually be used
sadly it was sealed shut for whatever
reason meaning it was only good for
sitting on a shelf not only that but the
collector’s edition also came with the
perk of earning double xp for the first
week online and access to a high level
machine gun you’re cynical Zeus unless
you are strong if you paint a bit more
seventy dollars on PC or $80 on xbox 360
you’d get to upgrade everything quicker
than others so it was unfair on a couple
of levels number eight destiny twos
collector’s edition destiny to
activision and Bungie were courteous
enough to send GameSpot a few of the
Destiny to collector’s edition we are
going to be unboxing one Bungie sci-fi
FPS franchise is no stranger to
disappointing its fans and while the
second game made definite improvements
on the first it didn’t bring that same
insight to the collector’s edition
very ugly but it’s a good-looking ornate
kind of fake book while it did come
packaged with some wonderful artwork it
also came with a clunky solar-powered
USB charger some stickers and other
easily lose able knickknacks and an ugly
frontier bag we’d be able to forgive
this one and put it under the not for us
category if only it didn’t cost a
whopping two hundred and fifty dollars
it came with access to expansions as
well but those would be far cheaper down
the line to those who waited
lavalla this is my serious face can’t
you tell
number seven fable two’s limited
collector’s edition fable – oh you poor
sure you don’t want the buckle the case
of the limited collector’s edition for
fable 2 is an interesting one as it
might not have appeared on this list had
it included everything it promised but
alas here we are just two more we can
buy the music folks originally fans
could pay $80 to receive DLC a
behind-the-scenes DVD 5 art cards and as
small figurine of hob this version was
canceled last minute due to supply
issues with even the special box not
making the cut the revised version
dropped $10 in price and still included
the DVD and DLC codes but the damage had
been done to make matters worse some
Xbox 360 coffee ship without the DLC
codes so Microsoft had to do damage
control for already dissatisfied fans oh
I can almost smell the gold number 6
limited edition and legendary edition
both collector’s editions of this
otherwise incredible Microsoft title had
significant drawbacks upon release the
legendary editions main perk was the
replica of Master Chief’s helmet which
many fans may have been surprised to
shell out 130 dollars for only to find
out that they couldn’t even wear it
sorry sir your armors still in partial
lockdown while it still probably looks
cool on a shelf being able to put it on
would have been much sweeter more
significant was the literal damage done
by the limited edition for $70 fans
received the game art and a
behind-the-scenes DVD in a steelbook
case unfortunately the plastic holding
the discs in place was poorly designed
and caused the game to come loose during
shipment and when eager players opened
up the box they came to discover that
their coveted game was scratched
worried so easy number 5
mind your final thought will be how I
have bested you similar to that of fable
to the 2015 conclusion to the Arkham
series was meant to feature a
collectible that sounded insanely cool
suitably called the Batmobile edition a
fully transformable version of Batman’s
ride was featured in this $200 limited
edition however due to what was
described as quote unforeseen
circumstances that greatly compromised
the quality this version was canceled
fans were given full refunds and could
have picked up the other collector’s
edition for $100 which featured a
colorless statue of Batman but as the
Batmobile Edition was cancelled so close
to release date there probably weren’t
any left of that version
this means that fans who chose to give
warner brothers more money sadly missed
out on something extra special
I trust you have not forgotten me Batman
number four Japanese collector’s edition
final fantasy 14
what’s worse than a canteen you can’t
use a tumbler that teases you can use it
but really can’t this collector’s
edition exclusive to Japanese retailers
came with a ton of cool smaller items
among the typical artwork
behind-the-scenes DVD and keychain was
the bundle signature item a tumbler with
the logo on the side however a closer
look at the box revealed a warning
against putting salt carbonated
beverages juice dairy beverages or
anything solid inside this still left
tea in water for 9480 yen around 112 us
to date all have proven ephemeral you
had one job you tumblr how could you not
achieve what a simple glass can
accomplish one whose tail is yet
number three power armor edition fallout
76 uh fallout 76 so much promise so many
problems putting aside how many players
were disappointed with the game itself
Bethesda seriously screwed up with the
massive power armor edition coming in at
$200 this version came with a map 24
mini figurines a helmet and what was
supposed to be a nice canvas bag however
when it was shipped to customers they
were understandably enraged to receive a
cheap nylon one instead but the
company’s response made things even
worse essentially they knew they had to
replace the bag due to supply
constraints and neglected to tell anyone
the prices understandably dropped since
then but it was still an incredibly
callous thing to do number two zombie
bait Edition Dead Island Riptide wait
until you attract what I need you on
when we’d be wethington note two game
companies everywhere if you’re
collector’s edition is clearly going to
offend an entire gender it’s probably
best you don’t make it available in
Europe and Australia the zombie bait
Edition of Dead Island Riptide came
packaged with a bloody dismembered torso
of a bikini clad woman and the immediate
intense outrage across the Internet was
everyone from games journalists to
casual fans called out publisher Deep
Silver for featuring a collectible that
was so obviously a display of sexualized
violence against women the company had
to issue an apology to everyone but that
didn’t stop them from selling it look I
understand how you feel but we don’t
have much time here number one game not
included multiple titles of all the
awful aspects of collector’s edition
could bring the most egregious act a
company can commit is to exclude the
actual game we’ve seen this happen
multiple times such as the $270
collector’s edition for Mass Effect and
which was really just an RC car or the
$100 Panzer hunt edition of Wolfenstein
the new order which came with the
in-game enemy statue and an empty
steelbook case once you bought the game
these thanks it’s hard to imagine who
would want a collector’s edition that
didn’t include the game and we’d like to
think companies have learned but even
Red Dead Redemption 2 received a $100
collector’s box of goodies but no game
they’re just an insulting way for
companies to earn more money look at
this place
it’s like a palace now I’ve seen
everything do you agree with our picks
