    Bioshock, Diablo 3, Return to Castle Wolfenstein are some that come to mind. Starcraft Broodwar, C&C Tiberium Sun, Dawn of War series (just played multiplayer in that), Total Annihilation, HL series. Currently still playing Skyrim...

    Whatever game I don't finish I watch the story on youtube :) It's just easier to watch it if you dont have time to play but have time when commuting or at work:)

    I did it for F.E.A.R. 1 & 2, Max Payne 1 & 2, Halo 2.

    These are just games you have to know the story, same with other titles you guys are listing. Reminded me of other games I need to watch.

    Here comes my huge list - and this is just the games I wish I had finished, not the ones I don't care about:
    Alice
    Alice: Madness Returns
    Assassin's Creed - never got a chance to start the rest of them even though I own them
    Batman: Arkham Asylum - never got a chance to start Arkham City even though I own it
    Battlefield Bad Company 2 (finished!)
    Bioshock - never got a chance to start Bioshock 2 even though I own it
    Bulletstorm
    Chrono Trigger
    Darksiders
    Dead Space - never got a chance to start Dead Space 2 even though I own it
    Dragon Age (made it 70 hours in)
    Dragon Force
    Dragon's Quest VII
    Dungeon Seige - never got a chance to start the rest of them even though I own them
    Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
    F.E.A.R. - never got a chance to start the rest of them even though I own them
    Fallout 3 - I'm working on this one though... well I'm about to work on it
    Fallout New Vegas - I stopped since I hadn't finished F3 yet
    FarCry - I think I was near the end
    FarCry 2 - I stopped since I hadn't finished FC1 yet
    Final Fantasy 3 (or 6 in Japan)
    Final Fantasy VII - I kept starting over after disk 1 since Aeris kept passing
    Final Fantasy VIII
    Final Fantasy XII
    Final Fantasy XIII
    Gran Turismo 2 (didn't get as far as I would've liked to)
    Grandia
    Half Life
    Half Life 2 - never got a chance to start the rest of them (ep 1 and 2) even though I own them
    Hard Reset - lots of fun for the time I played it
    Kane & Lynch 2 - even though I never played K&L1 and I own it I just came into this game too late
    Kingdom Hearts
    Mass Effect - never got a chance to start Mass Effect 2 even though I own it so I didn't buy ME3
    Metal Gear Solid
    Metal Gear Solid 4
    Panzer Saga
    Phantasy Star IV
    Prince of Persia: Sands of Time - got this at launch and never finished - pretty much the same for most of the following episodes
    RAGE - Looks beautiful, I will come back to this one for sure
    Resident Evil - I was told that I was at the end when I quit playing it forever
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - I keep starting and then feeling like it's going to consume too much time so I never make it anywhere
    Super Mario Galaxy
    Super Mario Sunshine
    Shank - my save game got corrupted and I didn't feel like working my way to the last act again. This has prevented me buying Shank 2 even though it's been on sale a few times. (I bought Shank 2 anyway - but never installed it.)
    Morrowind
    Oblivion
    Skyrim - I'm working on this slowly because I don't want it to end
    Torchlight
    Trine
    Trine 2
    Zelda Ocarina of Time
    Zelda Wind Waker

    Looking at this list makes me feel like getting older sucks.

    Every GTA except III. Always hit something hard and find it more fun to rampage (plus I just didn't like Vice City).

    Both Batman games. Always hit something hard in that "you have to be console-twitchy and reload 20 times" way, and find it more fun to quit.

    Crysis. I didn't like it.

    But in general, I'm a finisher. I used to not buy a new game until I finished the current one.

    Forgot "Fury of the Furries". Great game! Pity the old Amiga was so slow it made it very time consuming to play.

    Never really thought about it, but I have a surprisingly long list:

    Amnesia: Dark Decent - BF3 took over my life right after I started it
    Dead Space 2 - Got too low on ammo and couldn't get passed a certain part
    F.E.A.R. 2 - Got repetitive
    Half-Life 2 - For some reason the game crashed at a certain point so I couldn't play further
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Bought it because I thought it was supposed to be scary, wasn't
    MW3 - Did the single player, but I dont think you've really beat the game until you've prestiged at least once. It just wasn't that good of a game.

    Most games I've played in my life with a handful of exceptions: Far Cry, Diablo 2, Half-Life, Max Payne, and a few oldies like Doom, Duke3d and Wolf3d.

    Final Fantasy IX.

    I was playing as a 12 year old and because I loved VIII so much, I thought IX would be just as great. I got about half way through and got stuck in some sort of puzzle so just left the game and sold it. I keep meaning to buy it again to finish it properly though...

    I'll list the ones I never finished because I lost interest:

    Oblivion - main story too linear and Oblivion gates are annoying;
    Fallout New Vegas - just became bored midway through;
    STALKER - all three are just horrible. I bought them because they are loosely based on the iconic sci-fi book I read as a child.

    The one I am sorry I finished: Mass Effect 3.

    The one I am sad will never get a sequel: Masquerade Bloodlines.

    The one one I am positively giddy will get a sequel: Witcher/Witcher 2.

    I've owned the entire Sam & Max series but I've only ever finished the first season. =\

    I've also yet to complete Halo 3: ODST, even though I've had it for a while now.

    Been so many over the years, but most recently... GT5 and Infamous on PS3, Deus Ex - HR, Star Wars - The Old Republic (I know it's not really finishable being an MMORPG but I said to myself I'd play one characters story through before cancelling but never did), I'm sure there are a heap more but I've found that the evolution of gaming into the online multiplayer/vs creature that it is now means for a lot of single player titles and "Story" modes of multiplayer titles I just can't seem to come back to them to continue.

    Rage_3K_Moiz Sith Lord Posts: 7,277   +22

    I never got around to finishing either of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games too.
    Hard Reset's another one.
    I reached the last boss of Darksiders, but never bothered to finish it. Someday...=P
    Far Cry 2 was something I got bored of, of the two times I played it.
    Skyrim is something I'm playing slowly, to make sure I get everything I can on the first playthrough. Fat chance of that, right? ;)

    I refuse to sit through the 10 minute loading times of the 2 STALKER games.

    The other 42 games are on my bucket list.

    I can't get through one level in Homeworld 2. Probably one reason why I stopped playing for a while. XDD
