Goddam reset button right beside the post button!!

I'll just say God of War and Horizon. I'm gonna have to start all the way over.

You should, those two games deserve to be platinum'd and appreciated to their fullest. 

I will. And it wasn't just those two. Tons of games from Infinite Undoscovery, GTAV and Red Dead 2 to Vanquish and NSMBU (Wii U version). Something comes up and before I know it, a year has passed. In fact, I bought Xenoblade for Wii, didn't beat it and bought it again for the 3DS...only to not beat it! I suck sometimes.

Liar.

I have never stopped playing a single player game for more than three days and have went back to it 

Damn, that dedication. I have had life intervene or a new game release more times than I can count that has gotten in my way of long single player games.

As long as you beat God of War at least, no need to overwhelm yourself.

Waterfall shouldn't be too hard to get back into but it is so short anyway restarting would not be an issue. Can't speak for the rest but what is Dead Nation like, almost sure I have that in my library? Worth a shot?

The thing about Matterfall though, is it's pretty tough, and requires mastery of fairly complex technique. It's one of the more difficult side scrollers I've ever played. I was in a nice ryhthm, and would have to get back into it. As you say though, it's a short one, which is a plus. Dead Nation, like Matterfall, is a Housemarque game, and maybe my favorite of all of them ( I own 10 of their games across PS3, PS4 and Vita ). It's a top down, twin stick shooter, where you play not only to pass missions, but also for score and money. You collect money to buy new weapons and gear, which you also purchase upgrades for. It's the game so nice I own it thrice, with plats in the PS3 and Vita versions. It's currently $15 on the NA PSN. It'll almost certainly be on sale at some point too. It also has a co-op mode, and while decent fun, I prefer solo.

The start of that third world begins to get pretty damn hard alright. I might try out Dead Nation, never knew it was Housemargue, I lived all of their games this gen and Alienation was perhaps my favourite. Cheers.

Legend of Zelda:  A Link to the Past (started 1991, finished 2018)

Suikoden (started 1997, finished 2009)

Luigi's Mansion (started 2002, finished 2017)

Fire Emblem:  Awakening (started 2012, finished 2019)

All games that I put significant time into, but for one reason or another had multi-year gaps in playtime before I returned and completed.  It gives me hope of finishing other games that are in my deep, deep back-log.

God of War 1, got so tired of the QTE-crap that i rage-quit about 75% through and never returned
Final Fantasy 6 and Octopath Traveler, played them for about 30 hours, then stopped and i am not sure if i will ever return



Switch friend-code: 6700-1526-7903

I have several games that I put down with plans to come back and finish them later that I never did, due to the steady stream of new releases that interest me keeping me busy. I'm not sure if I ever actually went back and finished any of them so far.



I came back to Windwaker after setting it down a couple years earlier and finished it.



Endless Space. Have 50+ hours and a huge empire. Tried getting back into it a few months ago and was totally lost. So many menus, spreadsheets, etc, forgotten where everything is and would have to relearn the whole thing all over again. Also have games I haven't played for the same reasons, mostly rts, sim, strategy type games



Ocarina of Time. Go stuck [on Wii, bad arrow aiming] at the beating drum boss after 100s of tries. 18 months later I DL'ed on WiiU [for $2.00] and started over and finished it.
