Forums - Gaming Discussion - Too many unfinished games. Will not buy a new one until I complete them.

I have just realised that I am a compulsive buyer.  I get new games, but I rarely take the time to finish them.  In the hope of saving some money, I have decided to finish all the main quests of my games before buying a new one.  I am making this thread in the hope it will motivate me to pass through some very bad decisions.

The list with a few comments:

PS2 games:

1.  Fatal Frame II.  It should be easy.  I love horror games.
2.  The Lord of the Rings: The Third age.  Should be fun.
3.  Ico.  Not too long.
4.  Shadow of the Colossus.  Tought one.
5.  Silent Hill 3.  On the PS2 or from the HD collection.
6.  Giants:  Citizen Kabuto.  This will be a tough one.  It's supposed to be good, but from what I have played...
7.  Yakuza 1.  Superb.
8.  Yakuza 2.  Amazing.

PS3 games:

9.  Flower.  Short.
10.  Silent Hill.  First one.
11.  Siren Blood Curse.  Too dark.  I am lost most of the time.
12.  Afrika.  Mistake.
13.  Uncharted.  GONE!
14.  Uncharted 2.  GONE!
15.  Spider Man Shattered Dimensions.  Why did I buy this one?
16.  Nier.  
17.  Aquanaut's Holiday.  Don't ask me why, but I bought it in japanese.  This will be a tough one.

New arrival:  Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year edition.

Xbox 360 games:

18.  Singularity.  Halfway through.
19.  Kingdoms of Amalur.  This will be long.
20.  Castlevania Lords of Shadow
21.  Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga.  Already played it for about 40 hours.  I have not finish the main quest or touched the expension.  
22.  Sherlock Holmes vs Jack The Ripper.  Mistake.
23.  Skyrim.  40 hours in.
24.  FFXIII-2.  Just played for a few hours.
25.  Halo 3 ODST.  Came free with the xbox.
26.  Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate Edition.  Just started.
27.  Dragon Age II
28.  Oblivion. GONE!
29.  SIlent Hill Homecoming.
30.  Child of Eden.  Short.
31.  Test Drive Unlimited 2.  Just the championships, but I am not very good.
32.  Alan Wake American Nightmare.  So let down by this.
33.  Amy.  THE mistake of the whole list.  I don't know how I'll finish it.

New arrival:  The Saboteur

Wow!  I can't believe I have so many unfinished games.  RIght now, I am playing Singularity.  Pretty good.  I should finish it this week.  Anyway, stupid thread, I know, but I must cut down on my expenses.  And if I bought them, somewhere inside me, I thought they were pretty good.  Right?

I hated Oblivion too for some odd reason, although I usually like playing RPG's.

My list is similar to that in length, I've also made a foolish mistake of purchasing a PS3, so there goes a few more games added to that list.

Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

Nier is awesome. Such an amazing soundtrack.

Make sure you play it twice! You don't really understand what's going on until the second playthrough, and some of the added scenes are a total gut punch. One in particular makes me a little weepy whenever I think about it.



Holy balls bro! You could just sell most of them too.

You should never talk about quality.You play games for trophies ... you are a disgrace to us casual gamers.

 

OP my back log is massive. Problem is, school is keeping me from playing my precious HD remakes, new Silent Hill, Yakuza DS, Sims 3 Pets, etc. I just want to game again :(

 

Oh and did I mention? badgenome is wrong, Nier is awful. Remember, he lacks  the ability to judge quality. All games are good to him if they have trophies!

That's not true. Catherine has trophies, and I still haven't touched it her it.

Yeah!  I thought about it.  But I like having them in my collection.  So I will make the effort to finish them.  But I am pretty sure I will crack before the end.

That's a different reason, girls scare you.

Indeed, Nier has the best soundtrack in all of the games I have played.  I like the game, but I just can't play it for long periods of time.
