The Most Useless Video Game Items

I'm not sure this list is complete without mentioning one of, or collectively, the thousands of pieces of useless crap in an Elder Scrolls game or Fallout 3.

but those items are purely just there to add detail with the world the fact that you can interact with them is their entire purpose.
But still useless though.

I used to build stuff out of clutter in Morrowind. I once collected all the books I could find and built a small house in Ald'ruhn.

I picked up every caliper I could...I ended up with over 80 by the end of 7 hours. Fun..

I immediately thought of toilet paper in FFVII. Conspiracy theories abounded over that one. Spent hours trying to give it to that indisposed gentleman in Rocket Town.

List is kinda weak though.

SF's Vega? Halo's Needler? MGS's cigs? Castlevania's daggers?

All highly useful if you know how.

I always like to be reminded about Shenmue, such a great game , i spent hours just playing Hang On and Space Harrier in the arcade on that game. The Capsules were pretty useless though.

I thought they would have included the Crocodile Cap from MGS3: Snake Eater. I could never find a single situation in which enemy soldiers were near enough to a lake or other body of water and I could use the cap to disguise as a crocodile and go in for a stealth kill. The idea is cool, but its totally useless.

The cigarettes proved more useful in MGS4; they depleted health but restored Old Snake's Psyche.
