    Everyone has games they haven't finished. Because I'm nosy, what games have you got that you haven't finished? Have you got games that you've finished but not got all the achievements/trophies? Do you even try to get them all?

    I'll post my list of unfinished games after a few replies, I just want to see whether I should list them all or just some of them. ;)

    If what you mean by completely finished is finished all side quests, found all upgrades/secrets/items/tokens/whatever, then I have finished very few of all the games I've ever owned. If you just mean that I've completed the story, then about half of my games of the previous generation I have either not begun or finished, although in my defence I bought some of them well into this current generation. The current generation is where I am worst, however, as I have only begun on 1/5 of the library I own for PS3. [face_blush]

    I've even been renting Dark Void for three months without finishing it, because I was too engrossed with Infamous 2 in that time period!

    This is why, as paradoxical as it sounds, and how utterly stupid it is with respect to one's own money, I prefer games with short campaigns, so that I can finish them quickly. I should be ashamed of myself for having that preference... I'm only encouraging laziness on the part of the developers. [face_plain]

    *looks at Steam library*

    Alan Wake, Magicka (because seriously it's harder than it looks), Dead Space, Alpha Protocol, the entire Assassin's Creed series, Portal 1 and 2, Psychonauts, TFU 1 and 2, The Witcher 1 (I didn't even bother getting Witcher 2), Evil Genius, World of Goo, Puzzle Dimension, Divinity II, Fallout New Vegas, a bunch of indie games ... and if we move into games I've been meaning to buy and play but haven't, there's Final Fantasy 13-2, KotOR 2, Uncharted ...

    ... embarrassingly, it looks like I've really only finished Blizzard or Bioware games, and a handful of tower defence things. [face_blush]

    Far Cry 2, mostly (the malaria mechanic drives me crazy). The only other games I haven't finished are mostly ones I picked up as part of a discounted pack that I wasn't particularly trying to get in the first place. Human Revolution is the only game I've ever gotten 100% achievements on, so far.

    This is a nice game. It returns to the main character from the previous generation's trilogy, and those same mechanics, all the while mixing in new powers and mythology that is reminiscent of the stand-alone 2008 game. When I played it, I got the feeling that Ubisoft were trying to take the ideas from the 2008 game, and incorporate them in a more familiar tried and true way, as if to redeem themselves to the fans. It is challenging and frantic, and you will have amassed quite the arsenal of powers by the end parts of the game, that you will have to use in tandem at a hectic pace. The campaign is fairly short, however. There is some replay value, though, in that you unlock survival challenges after finishing the campaign, which I used as a convenient way to rack up achievements.

    Here's my pile of shame:

    Xenoblade Chronicles
    The Last Story

    Fallout: New Vegas
    FF XIII-2
    Infamous 2
    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
    The Sly Cooper Collection
    Clash of the Titans

    Rogue Galaxy

    Planescape: Torment
    Icewind Dale
    Icewind Dale II
    Temple of the Elemental Evil
    Baldur's Gate
    Baldur's Gate 2
    The Legend of Grimrock
    Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition
    Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone
    Dungeons and Dragons: Demonstone
    Dark Forces II
    Titan's Quest

    You might not think it but I'm really not much of a PC gamer. But I am sometimes a sucker for Steam, and GOG sales. Also, the Humble Indie Bundle's gotten it's hooks into me a couple of times as well.

    I think I'll wind up finishing The Last Story next. I'm determined to not start another game until I finish the one I'm on. But after that one I think I'll try Planescape:Torment.

    As for trophies, I'll sometimes go out of my way to platinum my games but not usually. I'll only do it if I think it will be easy. Generally speaking, I won't play a game any more after I've beaten the main story.

    Life: depends on what you want. Some of my games, like the Lego ones, I want to get everything, others like MW3 I'm happy with completing the campaign and getting so multiplayer achievements.

    Zebra3: hah! Now I won't feel so bad when I get around to posting my list! :p

    I have dozens of games on Steam that I haven't played yet because I get them in bundles on sales. It'll have to wait until I get home from my trip for a detailed accounting though.

    Well, I have more than one obviously, but Dead Space is the most recent. Reached the final boss, went about trying to blow away the pod things on its stomach. Took about fifteen failures and I was like "you know what? Who cares? My life is not going to be measurably better with blowing away one more hideous monster, gigantic or not. I'm done with this game."

    :eek: I can understand having 71 unfinished games, but 71 games you haven't even started? :eek:

    Edit: oh, and does anyone know of an android/pc app that I can use to keep track of my games? I Need to go through them all and finish some more.
