With the life consuming game which is FFXI, I've been thinking just how little I play other games, which also got me thinking of how many games I'v got sat on the shelf which haven't been played through or even started for that matter.

crikey!

er, Grandia 2

erm..

Evil Dead, which I took back straight away it was so shit.

uh...

I think that's it (apart from some older emulated games)

You need to stop buying games boyo.

EDIT- Thief 2

and never touched Kingdom O Magic, cause I haven't got a crap enough PC.

I don't understand how you never touch games once you've bought them. Do you not want to play a new game as soon as possible?

I used to be crap but Squirtle's "Finish those games" initiative got me on the straight and narrow. I must have finished about ten games so far this year and acknowledged that about another 5 were rubbish and have put them on eBay. At the moment I probably have about 7 games across all formats that are unfinished and only two (Splinter Cell: PT and The Twin Snakes) that are still in their shrink-wrap. There aren't that many games coming up in the short term that excite me so I should be able to get into good shape before the October to December rush.

The only potential problem is that XBOX live has meant I have been playing a lot of games like Top Spin and EIS.

But when 3 or 4 new games come at the same time, some just get left by the wayside :blink:

You don't have to buy them.Since FFXI arrived i haven't bought any new games (Apart from Ninja gaiden which i had on order for ages), And i don't intend to buy any more for quite a while.

Of all the games I have that I would like to finish, Gregory Horror Show is one I really want to get done. However, I just don't seem to get it for some reason. Whenever I put it in the console and start playing, I just sit there wondering what to do. It isn't really obvious what to do next. I need to get me head in to the Gregory Horror Show way of thinking I think. ho hum. It'd be a nice, easy, one to tick off the list too.

Your right I don't HAVE to, but I do :blink:

Don't worry I will get round to them, but with only 5hrs of sleep a night at the moment due to the amount of gaming hours i'm playing I can't really commit any more time (FFXI, RC2, RE0, FC etc... I am playing too many games atm)

The worrying thing is evertime someone posts a game they haven't finished I think shiiiit, I haven't done that either ;)

Don't kid yourself mate, you'll never finish the vast majority of those games. I've been saying the same thing as you about Code Veronica and a bunch of other games for years, but the chances of me touching them again, let alone finishing them, are zilch.

Ahh, but I was in a similar situation with my PS1 games. I had almost 100 PS1 games which I had to complete, and within 4 months I had completed 75 of them, and now I've done about 90. I ALWAYS get them done, but it just a case of catching up (well maybe not all those dam huge RPG's though :blink: )

Problem is though atm I'm working 50+ hrs a week which is really hurting my play time ;)

That is my PS2 and GC list. So what I am doing at the minute? Replaying Super Mario Sunshine.

I really can't think of one. Though I haven't completed every game the way I want to. Viewtiful Joe in Adults Mode for example. I'm trying this at the moment but The Magnificent Five are giving me hell. Ikaruga in Hard Mode is another one.

To be honest, the sheer amount of money wasted there is rather shocking. Not really impressed I'm afraid.

Well everyone is welcome to come round to my house and play freely on them. That way they aren't being wasted right?

Can't be more than a grand worth of games there, that could be a two week holiday in the sun which turned out to be a holiday from hell. I could think of other worse ways of wasting money like gambling :rolleyes:

On the other hand, if you gambled successfully you could have eight times as many unplayed games to look forward to.

A lot of the games i've bought have been second hand/bargain bin material. So financially its been affordable. Its still a waste though.

Maybe i should just cut and paste my list into the trading folder... I can't see myself completing all those in the next 6 months.

I've got lots of games that I've never completed and never will. It's the nature of certain genres (RPG and adventure games mainly) - there are loads of people telling you how much they enjoyed game x and how everyone should play it so you of course get it. But people only enjoy these games because they put so much time into them at a point when they usually haven't played many other games like it, so of course I (having played a load of RPGs in my time) am going to get bored 3 hours in.
