OXM: Great Games We'll Never Finish

OXM writes: "Everybody owns at least one world-class game they'll prattle about till the cows come home but have yet to actually finish. As a rule, we'd rather die (or more likely, stall frantically while Googling wikis under cover of the table) than admit to such oversights, but guilt has a way of wearing a man down. Join Matt, Log and Ed as they get a few things off their chests."

I doub't I'll ever 100% a Yakuza game, but still every thing about the series... except golf.

HolyOrangeCows2516d ago

If I ever beat Demon's Souls, I'll EAT a copy of Yakuza.

I have yet to finish Metal Gear Solid 4. I bought the MGS4 bundle back in the day with the Backwards compatible PS3 and I was so amped to finish the franchise off on a high note, but the game just didn't deliver like the previous titles and I felt it was more of a movie then a game.

Also they took out most of the actual stealth elements and the install times for each section got to be too numerous and tedious. I kind of felt like going back to finish it, but the lack of trophies put that on the back burner.

SuperLupe2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

MGS4 was cool, I finished and but you're right, this time Hideo went too far with the cutscenes. But its only near the end of the game that I started having the feeling that I had watched more than I had played.

NYC_Gamer2517d ago

MGS 1&3 were the best in my opinion

RankFTW2517d ago

MGS 3 is a masterpiece that will never be surpassed.

BattleAxe2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

@ Raven

Well if you don't like the story or the plot enough to watch the cutscenes, then why would you buy MGS4 in the first place? Since MGS2, cutscenes are a given, but the other thing is you can skip them if you want to, so why complain about it?

Sugreev20012516d ago

Yeah,MGS4 was a disappointment for me because the cutscenes were simply too long and too many.I love watching cutscenes,but MGS4 took things too far.MGS3 is the best in the series.

Final Fantasy XIII for me. I started playing the game, and about 9 hours into it, I just couldn't take it anymore...this was not the final fantasy game I used to remember.

SuperLupe2517d ago

Same here, FF fan but only got 14 hours in and gave up, nothing was pushing to go further.

rabidpancakeburglar2517d ago

I completed it twice and spent about 110 hours on it, despite most peoples opinion it is actually a good game.

JVC062517d ago

I bought this game on release, and was really looking forward to it. Very soon into the game I realised the linear approach and confusing story was really putting me off.
I left it for a year and just recently got back into it and ended up spending 120 hours acquiring all the upgrades and achievements.
In summary the game as a story let me down compared to some of the older ones which were brilliant, but I did enjoy the levelling up and Cieth stone missions, Square have definitely not been on their game since FF10 in my opinion.

FFXIII, same game for me i was days into the game when my harddrive crashed and i lost all my data still haven't goten the nerve to start all over again. :(

SuperLupe2517d ago

My favourite is MGS 1 too. Sometimes I feel it doesnt get the credit it desrves compared to MGS3 which is the 2nd best imo.

Kee2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

Umm.. I vowed to platinum demon's souls but after beating it about 5 times I still have a few trophies to get. Stopped trying about a year ago. (Nah, less than that, more like 7 months ago)

egidem2517d ago

Then there are those games that you want to platinum, but it just seems impossible to do it. One of these, currently on top of my list is Wipeout HD.

ainsz2517d ago

You are so right about that. When I beat Zico, I almost cummed in my pants! Still no where near platinuming it though...

RankFTW2517d ago

I got platinum on my US copy of DS but only got about 50% in my EU version.

jerethdagryphon2517d ago

demons souls disapointed me i expected it to be harder beat with plat in 3 and a bit playthroughs easy game :(

unfinished anythign with retarded amounts of online trophys, and currently gt5 stupid special events :(

helghast1022517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

I have the Demon's Souls platinum :)
In fact, im considering importing a US copy to get the Platinum ALL OVER AGAIN

For some reason Mass Effect for me the franchise not just 1 or 2 but both combined.

Have 100hrs in ME1 but still havent made a class to get the last 3-4 achievments of using biotics.

Same goes for ME2.

RankFTW2517d ago

I got prety bored at the end of ME1 and never finished it but completed ME2 twice, it's a much better game.

aznrunner18812517d ago

I think ME2 is more shooter, whereas ME1 was more RPG. However, the shooter side of ME2 coupled with the RPG elements makes for a masterful game IMO.

grifter0242517d ago

Rank-- To each his own...I loved Mass 1 more than I did Mass2 and right now only have 1 save in Me2 at the level cap of 30 with 1 playthrough on insanity halfway through that I havent played since March.

Azn- Agree although Bio needs to throw in more RPG elements than what they took out of in ME2. I dont know why they took out changing armor at least leave that in there jeez.
