For me it was The Crew demo.

1:10 seconds into the first race, um, no.  

Not for me, deleted super fast.

Do developers get statistics like that?  Just curious.

Did you even bother to look at the handling options?  Assuming that was your problem with it...

Yeah 1.10 seconds is pathetic for anything to be given a try of course as an Arsenal I understand how that can happen   eek

Say your issues and maybe someone can help, there are a few easy setting changes for handling that really make it handle well.

Now I'm trying to think of the shortest amount of time I've ever spent with a game before deciding it wasn't for me.

I think Star Wolves 3 and Galactic Civilizations 3 each have something like 20-minutes played on my Steam account, but that just indicates that I didn't want to play them at that time.  GalCiv 3 was a beta at the time, and SW3 was scuttled after I decided not to follow the on-screen mission prompts, failed, and didn't feel like replaying from scratch.  I fully intend to give them both another "real" try at some point.

There have also been games that I played once and never revisited.  Soul Calibur V was so generic that spending part of an afternoon in the story campaign left absolutely no impression and I honestly forgot I owned it.  On the opposite end of the spectrum, I had such a good time with Brutal Legend that I had to force myself to stop playing...and have no explanation for why I never loaded it up again.

But in terms of "NO I HATE THIS" reactions...I'm trying to think of anything I didn't spend at least a few hours with.  I probably have at least 10-15 hours in Demon's Souls, trying to find at least a shred of the same fun that everyone else was having.  Fable II was one of the least enjoyable games of its generation, yet I still finished the whole thing.  Even games that proved to be irredeemably broken, like Master of Orion III and Battlecruiser 3000 got at least a few hours out of me as I tried to figure out what I was even supposed to be doing.

I feel like there must be at least a couple examples where I quit something within a few minutes, but nothing's coming to mind so far....

I definitely didn't give it enough time, I get that.  I guess I really wasn't in the mood for racing, and the first level of the demo that has you going through fields/trees running from the cops didn't interest me at all.  Oh well.

Thinking about it some more, it's possible I spent less than an hour playing Super Street Fighter IV before shelving it and eventually trading it in.  I later had a really great time with Mortal Kombat 9 and Injustice but nothing about the mechanics or structure of SSF4 appealed to me at all.

I don't have a good sense of what The Crew even is, but "Which Game Did You Quit The Fastest?" is an interesting topic!

I had about the same reaction to Street Fighter IV, but still probably spent and hour or two trying to figure it out.

The quickest I've quit a game was one of those squad-based military shooters a few years back, might have been a Rainbow 6 game.   I literally spent about 20 minutes stumbling around then getting sniped from the other side of the map before realizing I had absolutely zero interest in even figuring out how to play the game.

I think Spore may be the quickest. Enjoyed the first two stages, got to the RTs stage, hated the game mechanics of it and turned it off after a couple of minutes. Couldn't tell you what it was about it now. Never went back.

The latest Call of Duty, I had reservations about getting it but wanted to do MP with the gang.  I probably played 3 matches and just stopped, didn't like the map look, felt I died as soon as I saw someone, didn't like the new movement options, lag seemed bad, game moved far to quick for me etc..  I suppose I could go back and play the campaign but really don't have the desire to do that either.  I'd say no more FPS's for me but who knows, I did like the Destiny MP game play. Another factor in dropping CoD so quickly is that I was having fun with Sunset Overdrive at the time and would rather do that then be frustrated with the speed of CoD.

Bladestorm: Nightmare. Ugh.

I'd add Final Fantasy on 360 (where you begin in the subway) I got outside and thought:FTS. Traded it the next day.

NFS:Rivals was also one of the polite declines.

This one was pretty fast:

Spoiler for Hiden:

But I'd have to say this one was fastest, probably because of the limited color scheme:

Wait, I may have misread the thread title.

Demon Souls ~ 30 minutes.

Started it up, combat seemed alright.  Ghost and message system cool enough.  Got carried away when fighting a big dude on a bridge.

Dead.  

“Oh well, my fault.”

Game starts me back a mile away.  Get about half way back to bridge dude when enemies crowd me and wonky physics push me into a hole.

Dead.

Games starts me back at beginning.  Hmm, this game could use a few more check points, oh well, onward to glory!

Dead.

Man this starting area is getting pretty old; at least they could let the enemies stay dead so I wouldn’t have to waste so much time getting back, maybe there is something I’m miss-

Dead.

“Screw you skeletons!  I don’t have time for your crap!“

Runs past all initial enemies, gets turned around inside a multi-level structure, look behind me.

“OH MY GOD! Every enemy from the start of the level is chasing me!”

Dead.

I've recounted this story before in various topics, and technically it may have not been the shortest amount of time I've ever spent with a game - but it's easily my most memorable rage quit.

The year was 2002. Two of my most anticipated sequels to my most beloved franchise were releasing the same week. Heroes of Might & Magic IV and Might & Magic IX. While I loved the HoMM series, I was most anticipating M&M IX because I had played 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 obsessively. I went into the store and plopped down $100 for both of those bad boys. At the time, I was out of college and had a job, but I was in debt and certainly didn't have a ton of disposable income, so this was a rather large investment for entertainment.

I get home, start up M&M 9, and got that sinking feeling we've all had at one time or the other. The feeling that we've been had. That the hype machine has dashed our hope upon the rocks, and we just got taken for a ride. I started and stopped, started and stopped, hoping I was just overlooking something and that the game really wasn't all that terrible. When I finally accepted that I was out $50 on a steaming pile of dog crap, I took the CD out and threw it and the game box in the trash. It is the only time I have ever physically thrown a brand new game in the garbage.

Of course, the sad cherry on top of this tale is that HOMM IV was also a colossal let-down, though after my despair over M&M 9 I wound up playing it quite a bit because it had at least a few redeeming qualities.

I'm having trouble remembering which game it was, but I remember taking a gamefly rental and dumping it in the mailbox the day I got it. 

I do remember hating Fable 3 and returning it pretty quickly too.  If I wanted to play a game where there was more control given to how you wanted to make friends than fight, I would have played the Sims.

No. Clouds of Xeen was 5&6 which you could combine, if I remember correctly.

I believe 4 was Clouds of Xeen, 5 was Darkside of Xeen and together they made World of Xeen.

Yes, vriinc is correct. 4 & 5 could be combined. I only did it once because it took an astronomical amount of space. I had to delete almost everything off my computer to get it to fit.

Almost 40 megabytes. INSANITY.

Hotline Miami crashed on start-up and I never tried it again, so I guess that one wins.

Thanks. That was the last M&M I played. Loved World of Xeen. Hated the undead dragon that chased you around the clouds. Tongue Still finished the game.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor - I only played this more because I had to do a review. UGH.

I deleted BioShock 2 pretty fast from my Steam account. Played it for two hours, per the stats. Couldn't get into it at all. Nothing about it worked to pull me in and I moved on. Finally fired up BioShock Infinite the other day and it's a billion times more entertaining. I'm about half way through that and need to finish it at some point.

Condolences on Steel Battalion Purge.  I played the demo for literally 30 seconds. Deleted it instantly after.

The Evil Within. Played the demo for about 15 minutes and then died in a way I thought was pretty cheap. Ended up uninstalling it right then and there.

Then purchasing it a month later on a Steam sale.   icon_confused

Oh the memories. So many awesome memories.

Also still have a decently sized poster of the box art of M&M VI on my wall that I won in a 'contest' (basically buy the game, play it for 30 minutes to find a codeword, and send in said word and your registration card - first X people get the poster). Starting to fade a bit though.

M&M IX however...I did not play much of it at all. Didn't like 8 much, and I read the reviews of 9 before buying. Glad I did (or didn't, in the game's case).
