    So I thought this might be a great idea for a thread and hopefully I can inspire some of you to broaden your horizons and get through those games, think of this thread like a gamers anonymous thread only you come here to confess what awesome games you have not finished and then you update us when you've pushed on through and broken out the other side for victory!

    Oh and I don't consider 100 percenting completing, unless that's what you wanna do that's cool too :)

    Being that I'm starting this thing I guess I need to participate, so here's a part of my list.

    Just Cause 2 (currently playing - absorbs so much time faffing about that I don't know if I'll ever "finish" it.

    Gemini Rue - I love this but it's still unfinished. The icon stares at me from the desktop every time I fire up something new.

    GTAIV episodes - So I've finished TL&TD but not BOGT, the great news is my procrastination means the game runs great and Liberty City still puts a lot of worlds out there to shame for sheer charm and fun.

    Borderlands 2 - yes it's on the pile, I seem to fire this up when I'm tired and then I lose my patience in the respawning enemy areas (I love a good enemy clearing so I can wander around and just look at "stuff").

    Alice Madness Returns - I got the shits with this but I was enjoying it, hmm must go back.

    Psychonauts - shame of all shames and I am a fair way through I just keep getting distracted by shiny things.

    Fallout New Vegas - I honestly can't remember why I never finished it but dammit I'm not living with the shame anymore, and now that all the DLC is out I will play it from the beginning to the end!

    Saints Row 3 (same thing happens in this as happens in Just Cause 2 - damn you open world shenanigans!)

    Dragon Age Origins - I love this game I really do, but I took a break to play a couple of something elses and completely forgot wtf I was doing - big mistake!!

    that'll do for now, I promise to update myself when I whittle the pile down. :)

    I'd run out of ink in my keyboard if I tried to write up the games I've started and haven't finished.

    I'll put Bishock up the top of it though.

    Witcher 2 - i love the intro, i love the look of it, i love the sound of it, tried playing this through 2 times, both times i just get up to flotsam and then i just somehow never get around to playing it again, eventually it gets deleted off the SSD

    Skyrim - started this a few times too, too opened ended, felt like playing real life instead everytime i fired it up

    have finished Call of Pripyat but not SoC. I got it when it first came out and got to a point where I was too scared to continue.

    Torchlight- I actually got very close to finishing this then number 2 came out and I never got there.

    I think I've got about another twenty minutes of Crysis 3 to complete it. Can I bare that god awful wank-fest for a full twenty minutes? No, I'll have to do it through four separate sittings I think.

    Should finish Dishonored in a couple of days. The game's amazing and I'm regretting having not purchased it earlier. (scratch that. completed today).

    Black Mesa. Probably finish it in a month or so...

    StarCraft & StarCraft HOTS. Only up to mission three on HOTS, had to put it to the back to finish Tomb Raider and Max Payne 3 (both of which were freakin' awesome) and yet to finish SC (close).

    Those are the games I know I'll finish.

    Games that I won't finish for a looong time or will probably never finish;

    Crysis 2
    Borderlands 2
    F1 2012
    Diablo III
    GTA IV

    Wolfenstein (the newer one)

    There's probably more I haven't listed as well. I think most games that I buy I tend to play a few hours of and then never get back to them, although I've been better at completing games recently

    Well this is my Steam account

    Games Owned: 987
    Games Played: 158
    Games Never Played: 829
    Percentage Played: 16.01 %
    Total Hours: 1529.70

    So yeah I have a stupidly large pile of shame that I doubt is ever really going to decrease. I want to finish Infinite in 1999 mode but the story isn't really that good for a second playthrough ):

    I've got a zillion games I've never looked at and probably never will. I can't kill that alien in Crysis. I don't know how to kill him so I'll probably never finish that game. I haven't finished my Lego indiana jones and I started lord of the rings but only for about a minute. I bought an XBox but I haven't even turned it on. I started something on the PS3 but I got stuck on that. I started some other thing on the PS2 but I got stuck on that. I started another one on the PC but I haven't played that.

    I shouldn't have games. I should have stuck with the one game that I played for 7 years.

    Tomb Raider Anniversary - Love this game but started over about 5 times, gotta get it finished

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - About half way thru, not a bad game but struggling to keep me gripped

    Just Cause 2 - probably never finish, so much chaos to cause lol

    Omikron: The Nomad Soul - a game i'm really wanting to get into but yet again keep restarting it over and over.

    Splinter Cell: Conviction - Finding it hard to get into, probably not splinter cell-ish enough for me i dunno.

    I have put 30 hours into this and I'm still on the second last level. I have really enjoyed it, absolutely sensational game with gorgeous art direction, utterly immersive environments and story, and strong game mechanics.

    I put 63 hours into this before getting distracted with something else, and I didn't even get close to finishing. I think I'll have to start again now I have all the DLC. :lol:

    Ah yeah, this is the only time I've been tempted to pick up a controller. It's my first platformer, and the camera does weird things sometimes; I've found navigating using keyboard and mouse less than intuitive at times.

    My GF plays this with infinite health, infinite ammo, and no reloading. It basically becomes a cable hook sandbox, and looks far more fun that way.

    I got about 15 hours into DAO and quit in frustration because I didn't care about a single character in the game. They all irritated me. I had fun hitting on Morrigan, but her response set off my slut alarm. I'm more of an Elder Scrolls guy.

    Damn ... 88 games. I thought I was progressing. Not as bad as Gnarlyrocks, but I've been working on getting it down from 90 a year ago. Finished Super Hexagon, 10,000,000, and A Valley Without Wind in the past couple of weeks. I can usually resist Steam sales, but those Humble Indie Bundles get me.

    Games I've started and would like to finish:

    Skyrim - I'm 225 hours in, finished every sidequest, and never fast travelled. I really need to get back into this and finish the main questline.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution - I think I did the first mission. I got bogged down trying to get the perfect stealth achievement, but I loved the Ghost in the Shell vibe.

    Bioshock - I got about 1/4 through this. I really should try again with all the good things I've read about Bioshock Infinite.

    Torchlight II - I'd sort of like to finish it ... it's just ... I can't tell the difference between this and the first one. And I got my fill of the first one playing the infinite dungeon.

    Saints Row 2+3 - I've only played these in multiplayer, I should give the single player campaigns a shot.

    Amnesia - Finished the main game, keep meaning to play Justine or whatever it's called.

    Dead Space - I'd like to finish this, but I'm too scared to play it. Creepy horror is okay, but this is like The Thing meets Aliens times a million. It's like everything Doom 3 wasn't.

    If I think about it too hard I'll realise I buy games more frequently than I finish them, so the [huge] list just keeps getting longer. I'd rather live in ignorance.

    Mind you, I finally got around to finishing the last two missions of Blood Money, so that's something. Next up, the last few cases of LA Noire. That'll give me the HD space I need to install Psychonauts. :rolleyes:
