Games you have, but not finished?

I've just been looking at my games, and realised just how many I have either started and not finished, or not even started. Must be high 20s at least.

So how many games have you got, but not finished, or even started? If you feel like typing up a list of what they are, go ahead.

Most of mine are on the Wii, Bully, Manhunt 2, Sam & Max, Zack & Wiki, No More Heroes, etc. etc. But there's a couple on the Xbox too, Tomb Raider Anniversary, FEAR Files, Dead Rising, to name a few.

Re: Games you have, but not finished?

I haven't finished most of the games I have.

Then again, I play a lot of games where there is no technical "ending," or games where you are meant to play over and over, like Civilization and SimCity.

I haven't finished HL2, yet. One game I keep meaning to come back to is Omikron: The Nomad Soul. It's just that the beginning parts are so very clunky to get through. Once you start jumping bodies it gets a lot better.

I think there are very few games that actually manage to hold my attention long enough for me to finish them. But I have finished Final Fantasy I, IV, VI, VIII, IX, X, Tactics, and Tactics Advance, so if anyone can make games I feel compelled to finish, it's SquareEnix.

Re: Games you have, but not finished?

Most of the games I have, I do want to go back to and finish at some point, but I just keep getting new ones that take my attention away from the old ones.

Re: Games you have, but not finished?

The ones where there is an ending, but I haven't reached yet include:-

Tomb Raider Anniversary
Jade Empire (in progress)
Crysis (Basically looking around where to go next as I think I've done what I'm supposed to in that section, but the mission isn't continuing)
Assassins Creed
Gears of War.

They may be mostly older games, but are fairly recent purchases for me.

Re: Games you have, but not finished?

It probably depends upon how you define "finished." For games that have an actual story and ending like Resistance 2 or Gears of War 2 , I have finished all the missions but I know that I've never gotten 100% completion of all the collectibles and such.

I've finished all the main missions on the GTA games or the two Saints Row games, but I've never gotten 100% completion on any game like that as all the side missions bore me to death after awhile.

But there are also a lot of games that I never finished the story for one reason or another. I've NEVER beat any SNES game or any game that doesn't allow you to save your progress. I remember Metroid Prime for Gamecube had this boss mission that I simply couldn't beat and I wasn't really that far into the game and I just said the hell with it. (Games are supposed to be fun, not annoying.) Recently I gave up on RE5 pretty soon because it just wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be based on the demo.

For awhile I was renting games through Gamefly and I've lost track of the games I've played for a day or two and sent back.

Re: Games you have, but not finished?

By finished I mean finished the main storyline/quest. Not 100% collected every possible thing there is.

Re: Games you have, but not finished?

The ones that come to mind are Manhunt 2 and Shadow of Rome.

Manhunt 2 because it was such a disappointment, compared to the first game.

And Shadow of Rome because the final boss battles were too difficult.

I particularly remember how, after beating Marc Antony, your reward was--to fight him again! Only--he's tougher this time!

At that point I said: , and shelved it.

Re: Games you have, but not finished?

At least 20-30. There are a good number of those that I haven't even started. Now that I'm cutting back my WoW playtime considerably, I've been working on some of those more. There are a few, like Mass Effect, I'd love to play through at least another time before I get swamped with fall releases, too.

I finally opened Dead Space last night. I bought that a few weeks after it came out but never got around to it with the other games that came out around the same time. Well, Fallout 3 and WOTLK, at least. I'm on chapter four right now and enjoying it a ton.

Re: Games you have, but not finished?

Too many too count. I tend to play through a lot of games and quit on or near the last level/dungeon. It's not because of difficulty, it's more that I get tired of the game by that point. I'm not really sure why I do it.

I havent' finished Call of Duty 4 or 5, even though that's what I play the most - I just get them for the xboxlive online gameplay and don't really care about the game itself.

Stuff like Oblivion and Fable 2, because they're so addictive and open to exploration.

Splinter Cell Double Agent because I just lost interest in the middle of one of the mini-games (those minigames really brought this one - and I'm a big Splinter Cell fan - to a crashing halt)
