Reality Check: When Was the Last Time You Fully Completed a Game?

Nintendo Enthusiast's Omar T.: "Are you really impacted by software droughts? It's a serious question. We like to moan and groan when the release schedule for a particular platform doesn't look booked. But how many of us actually stop to ask ourselves how many unfinished games we still have sitting at home, let alone how long it would actually take us to complete them?"

I have this obsession with completing a game before I start a new one.

Omar911306d ago

It took me forever to finish KH 1.5 because I wanted to get everything in KH1. When I finally beat chain of memories I couldn't get to 365/8 because I wanted to finish Riku's story!

overall it took me more then I wanted to to finish that collection lol

XisThatKid1306d ago

Yea prolly before DmC I haven't actually ended a game in years but lately I've been good on it I'm still ending Last of Us now I bought it Launch week :/ Before I get flamed, I play alot of multiplayer and Co-Op games with an inconsistent group I am unfortunately very loyal to.

joshw20111306d ago

lol 365/8. Close!

OT: I need to start 1.5. Been obsessed with Animal Crossing and Pokemon lately so no time with school. Maybe over spring break next week I can start.

Army_of_Darkness1306d ago

I finally beat Tetris for the nes just yesterday........... :-)

OCEANGROWNKUSH1306d ago (Edited 1306d ago )

last games i finished were The last of us, GTAV, Pokemon Y, Resogun on hardest difficulty, and Killzone Shadowfall. working on a link between worlds, AC4, Outlast and Super Metroid at the moment.

showtimefolks1306d ago

The Last of US was the last one for me and before than borderlands 2 and GTA5

GuyThatPlaysGames1306d ago

I consider completing a game as in beating the story. As far as getting 100% trophies, Ain't nobody got time for dat!

wsoutlaw871306d ago (Edited 1306d ago )

Ill only do 100% if its a game i loved and want to play it more. Im not going to grind to get 100%. I ran through the story real quick on ac:bf and had no interest in doing all the other junk. Did anyone enjoy running around for hours finding fragments?
The last game I played until there was nothing else to do and then some was dark souls. I also just got the last of us dlc so I might finish that game too.

diehardmetallicafan1306d ago

yeah i wont start playing another game until i at least complete the story. but i do love a good platinum trophy hunt if its not too ridiculous and full of multiplayer trophies. ive platinum-ed demon's souls, dishonoured, deus ex hr, the last of us, resogun, contrast, outlast(that insane mode is a motherfucker) and a couple of vita games. working on killzone sf at the moment but the multiplayer trophies are pissing me off...

SilentNegotiator1306d ago

I beat Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon a week or two ago.

jcnba281305d ago

Is it any good? Thinking about picking it up but the price is still the same as it was a launch!

SilentNegotiator1305d ago (Edited 1305d ago )

I liked the first more because it had more unique ghosts and was more about solving the puzzles of how to capture them.

That said, Dark Moon is still enjoyable. There's still a good deal of puzzles and a couple of neat new features, like a special light you use to reveal hidden objects.

If I could go back, I would have waited for a price drop. It's a lengthy game, but kinda repetitive because you go through the same environments constantly and fight the same half a dozen ghosts over and over, until a boss fight comes up.

Visiblemarc1306d ago

Yeah, I basically complete a game every time I start one, as in till the credits roll. I *fully* complete every other game, it usually depends on if the 100% is worth it. Sometimes, the odds and ends are just pure filler and keep me from my backlog.

awi59511305d ago

Then i hope you dont have a steam account you will driver yourself crazy with all the cheap games that you will never finish.

yeahokchief1305d ago

ps plus is the same. they give you more free games than you have time to play and then put a dozen on sale for $1-$5 too.

bigfish1305d ago

the author is wrong - in short they state that the reason for having unfinished games are because people are buying the wrong types of games/consoles etc based on hype and drama......nope...

the reality is that people are buying what interests them otherwise why would they spend their hard earned cash on it??

its actually about having a lack of time due to other obligations such as work, family etc when one gets older. And then a new game comes out which they want to play before finishing the previous one, and again there is still a lack of time available to finish that one and the cycle repeats itself.

dontbhatin1305d ago

I actually just got 100% on TR:DE like a week ago. it was just so easy to do. Still need the platinum though! XD

MatrixxGT1305d ago

Great game I'd love to go for plat but dem mp trophies can kick rocks.

Christopher1305d ago

Few days ago, Far Cry 3. Now on RDR. I'm killing my PS3 backlog.

I did in AC Revelations and AC3, but that's about it recently. You really have to put time into competing a game 100%.

lsujester1306d ago

Especially Assassin's Creed games. Getting all of those flags, fragments, etc is pretty tedious.

elmaton981305d ago

Me too. I finished playing ninja gaiden sigma since I wanted to play it again so badly and I didnt stop till I finished it.

BosSSyndrome1306d ago

Beat megaman x like last week?

Geobros1306d ago

This is just a great game!!!

SoulSercher6201305d ago

That's funny I just beat Megaman X5 last week. Those final bosses ain't easy.

lilbroRx1305d ago

Its funny that we have inverted disagrees and agree with no difference between what we said other than the console we usually post under.
