Ninja Gaiden on Nintendo damn boss at the end. Ninja Turtles on the NES. Mike Tyson Punch Out. Actually i don't think the NES was a kids system at all. Those games were rather difficult.
Goldeneye for the 64 1st game i had to use a strategy guide. Getting the Golden Gun had me frustrated beyond belief.


Pfft, weakling. Good old-fashioned trial and error while shooting the safe floor tiles is the way real men beat Goldeneye.

Many games, most of them recently. I simply don't have the patience to endure games I don't enjoy for whatever reasons.
This is just a selection of games left unfinished:
- Lords of the Fallen --- I don't find enjoyment in repeating checkpoints a dozen times. Enemies are very tough, the game's pacing is painfully slow, it takes minutes to defeat the simplest opponent. And what I found most irritating is enemies respawning as soon as you walk behind a corner. Kills any will for exploration. Endured the suffering until I beat the second boss, then quit forever.

Shadow of Mordor - just too much extra stuff to do. I can hardly ever make it to the mission, as there is always some enemy to fight, some captain to defeat, somebody to avenge... It doesn't help that everywhere I go I need to either fight three orcs that multiplies to thirty in a heartbeat, or that if I want to avoid them I need to sneak around like an idiot. Makes even the easiest collectibles a chore to get to. Sure, there is lots to do, but it just seems to go nowhere.

Alien Isolation --- 4 chapters of sneaking through vents is plenty enough to call it quits, when I kniw there are a dizen more to go, with androids around every bend. A very slow and boring game.

Bound by Flame --- well, this game just plain sucks.

Bioshock --- once I realized that the entire game will be me shooting stuff in a submerged corridor, I gave up. That was chapter 2.

Honorable mention: The Last of Us --- I actually finished this game. I persevered because of a promise of things getting better, sadly they never did. I started on PS3, made it about halfway until I just couldn't take it anymore. Then I borrowed the PS4 version, had to suffer through the same part ("It gets better right after that part, trust me" said some of my friends). I vowed to finish it, never had I been praying more that each chapter is the last one. About 5 chapters after I had enough, the game mercifully ends.

There are more games I never finished, these are just a few recently. 


Damn this was funny. The way you described your Last of Us play through makes me think of the time i forced myself to finish Star Wars Force Unleashed 2. I felt nasty playing it. Definitely agree about Shadow of Mordor. It got so damn boring towards the end.

Man soon as i read pattern on the floor i dropped the book and just sat back thinking lol. There was no other part in that game where there was a puzzle on the floor. I don't even think there were any period. I for the life of me could not understand why that gun kept shooting me.



Super Ghouls and Ghosts

Fuck that game. Check out the end of this video for just one example of the bullshit.

I've lost a few 1000+ playthroughs in morrowind, ff tactics and other games due to mishaps (freezing, glitching, power went out) during saves. Does that count? I did play those games again but with more saves. haha.



really early into Dark Souls i kept going the wrong way and kept getting killed by skeleton's that wouldn't stay dead and didn't realize until months later i was going the wrong way.



I got stuck in Borderlands 2 and never played it again.
I was also in a similar situation as you when I played Tomb Raider. I wanted 1000G but could never get one achievement cause it glitched for me 3 times.

games don't really "beat" me, but if they're bad, stupid, or boring, I might quit, and I usually don't go for 100% completion by default just because I'm not interested, so there's that too... *shrug*

I don't remember doing any extra training at the end of FFXIII. However in FFXIII-2 it's pretty much a requirement as the boss is overpowered beyond belief.

I think I was doing poor because of my team set up. I had Lightning, Sahz, and I think Snow. I refused to change the team since I didn't like the other characters, (except Fang, she's fine). I kept losing, and I couldn't stand it anymore, so I quit.

I do like Sahz but he's the weakest character (in terms of damage) of the bunch. Snow is alright if used well but I never needed a Sentinel, so I barely used him.
AFAIR it's really important to have a Saboteur and a Synergist in the party.

With Hope, Vanille and Lightning it's terribly easy. All 3 are Medics, all 3 are Ravagers, Lightning is a Commando, Hope is a Synergist, Vanille a Saboteur.


I completed FFXIII without dying once on my second playthrough

I was using Vanille, Fang and I don't remember the last one

my 6 strategies were

1. Syn-Syn-Syn

2. Sab-Sab-Sab

3. Rav-Rav-Rav

4. Com-Com-Com

5. Med-Med-Med

6, Sen-Sen-Sen

Fang and Vanille are the best Syn and Sab

Start with Syn and wait until everyone has Haste and all the other buffs

Then switch to Sab and debuff all the ennemies

Then use Com and Rev to stagger the ennemies

Once the ennemie is staggered use rav to bring the stagger percentage higher and a few seconds before it ends switch to com for max dmg

If the ennemie uses a powerfull atk put everyone on Sen and then heal with everyone on med
