You gonna finish that? Why we don't finish games anymore

RPGs can be too demanding. Relationships with action games can get tedious. Backtracking through a space you've already explored might be less than awesome. Maybe you don't feel like fighting that boss you already killed despite the fact that now he's purple and has a longer life bar. Some players even insist games have been letting themselves go, and the resulting glitches can put an ugly and unsatisfying stop to the fun.

Games are growing more complex, but are they asking too much? How can the bond be rekindled between gamer and game? Does it need to be, or are we just getting lazy?

I usually finish about 90% of my games. But if I screwed up and bought a really bad game. Sometimes I can't even force myself to finish it. I've got a couple like that.

If I like the game I will tough it out with a bit of screaming and a little yelling. Yeah Bohan I'm talking to you!

so i traded it in today at Gamestop and put that credit towards GTA4. i got $32 for it so it wasn't that bad.

i got bored with it after the game switched over to Dante. i liked playing as Nero better (probably since this was my first DMC) and going over the same areas over again didn't help much either.

i didn't finish the game but i didn't care about the story and i got the DMC experience, plus $32 towards GTA4 for it so i'm satisfied.

Another good game.

sometimes there are games that surpass the current played game, and.... well, many of you guys must know.

I'm having the exact same problem with Bohan.
I'm waiting to the Rumble controller comes out in the UK, and then I'll go back to this title and play all the way through again.

my reason is because i have way too many to play at one time...
i still have a backlog of over 10 games to finish still

kira9893220d ago

20 games to beat on ps2 with some heavy rpgs
4 on xbox360(mass effect among them)
5 on wii(especially metroid prime 3)
7 on ps3 (oblivion and the orange box are on the top but i seem to always come back to cod4...)

1 word. Online gaming. The end.

Danja3220d ago

I think you meant 2 words....:)

harv0523220d ago

The only latest game I haven't finished yet is Resistance: Fall of Man. I just never got really that interested in it....

IntelligentAj3220d ago

I normally make it a point to finish a game first then move on to another one but it's never due to difficulty. The only game I stopped playing was Devil May Cry 3 cause it was 1)too hard and 2)I just wasn't interested.

Danja3220d ago

DMC3 wasn't that hard dude....you could have just played it on easy if normal was too..hard....

I like a challenge in games ne ways
