  1. I am playing Metro 2033 right now. I started to play the game when it came out, but never finished. This time I hope I will. I also never finished, but really want to:
    Dirt
    Doom 3
    Prototype
    Cryostasis
    GTA IV
    Amnesia
    Penumbra

    Which games did you start, want to finish, but never actually did.

    Love that one and the sequel.

    I guess I'll have to restart Metro yet again. I just lost everything but my OS drive. Ahh the days when books were the only form of fun. Oh, God am I that old.

    Wow...now this list is long and I can't even remember half of the games which I haven't finished...I'll just throw the games that I remember here :)

    - Fable Lost Chapters
    - Oblivion
    - Metro 2033
    - STALKER Clear sky (my PSU blew while playing this)
    - C&C Tiberian Wars 3 & Tiberian Twilight 4

    The games above I'll finish when I get a new rig that actually works :D
    And then the games below I'll most probably finish...unless some one of you can convince me otherwise ;)

    - Dirt 1 & 2
    - Devil May Cry 4
    - Fuel
    - C&C Red Alert 3

    Clear sky was pretty tough.

    Had a Club3D Radeon HD5670 that died so I got a XFX Radeon HD6580 instead "on" warranty :D
    Anyways...I had a 500W PSU...or was it maybe 550W...not sure...but it whined and whistled and what-nat and then it literally blew up and semi-killed my mobo. :/

    Almost all my games I have completed over 5 times, most prominently Halo, Fable: The Lost Chapters, NFS: Most Wanted, Battle Engine Aquila, Gunmetal, Warcraft 3 (all), Soldier of Fortune 2, Delta Force Black Hawk Down, Max Payne 2, Sudeki, Pokemon Sapphire and Ruby, and a few more.
    However, some I started, but for reasons I dont recall, never completed. Mainly:
    Hitman 2, NFS-UG2, Echelon, Star Wars Clone Wars, Penumbra, Amnesia:DA. And also FEAR2, I think.

    Oh damn.

    I never did finish Max Payne 2. Would like to try the third one. I tried Hitman (first, second and Blood money) but never could get into them. I like stealth but I just couldn't get the feel of those games.

    ...if you liked Max Payne 2 then you just have to try Max Paine "1" also! ;) ...and also Fable 3 even tho ppl mostly say that Lost Chapters is way better...but I still like Fable 3 so I recommend it too :)

    Lol, yeah, I've played Max Payne 1. Just that completed it twice, and 2 more that 5 times, hence the mention.
    I didn't really like Fable 2 & 3. Lost Chapters was simply my kinda game, so I never get bored of it. I never completed the Collect the Hero Dolls quest, so I always try to. Maxed out everything else!

    Spore for me as well, the space stage dragged on endlessly. Also Half LIfe 2. I got about 3/4 the way through it, and got kind of bored.

    I did finish HL2, But I do agree that it does get boring after a while and there is no re-playability. Lot of good mods for it though.
    Fallout 3 and Fallout NV are great. I was just replayed both of them again.

    Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil
    Bioshock
    Morrowind (loved the game but man did it eat my time!)

    On the other hand I have played the original Divine Divinity 3 times and NOX at least twice. :)

    Call of Duty Black Ops.

    I'm sure it was for a lack of imagination on my part, but ACOG sights in 1961 and exploding arrowheads just killed it for me. The loss is mine, of course.

    Any of the Ratchet & Clank, Daxter, etc. I know hard games, but these ones are not my type.

    Been trying to finish WarZone2100, Battle for Wesnoth, and FreeCiv. I like the turn-by-turn and RTS.

    I've been trying to complete the bioshock series for awhile. Also I started half-life 2 but I doubt I'll ever finish it.

    Assassin's Creed Brotherhood - I didn't like the story.
    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - The story is very cool, but the game is way too easy and the bugs ruined it for me.

    There have only been a few games I've stopped and haven't gone back to complete. One is Jericho. Another one - and I'll probably get flogged for this - is Assassin's Creed. I felt pretty bad about it too because I wanted to like it, and the story seemed interesting, but I couldn't get into the gameplay. I did enjoy Brotherhood's online multiplayer though.
    I do see myself possibly going back to finish both at some point, but it's not a priority for me.

    Penumbra: Black Plague is a lot better than Overture. You should definitely finish the first and try it out.

    I can't start nor finish Skyrim. Though I finished the prologue, the next day I can't even touch it again. I don't know if there's a disorder regarding this.. Gamer's Block? :p

    I forgot to mention Modern Warfare 3 too. I feel sorry not only for an unfinished business, but double posting as well. Apologies. :(
