I finish 100%. Maybe not right away but eventually they all get finished.

Today I will complete the 24hr Nurburgring race in GT5 and with that I will have achieved gold in every race. All I have left to do it upgrade 14 silver license tests to gold and get gold in a few more special events and I'll be done.

Haha, I'm at least 95%.

People who don't just waste their money. Like I'm trying to save money this year on games so I'm trying to squeeze every ounce of playtime I can on the few new games I have from Christmas. ACR lasted me a month and I hope the others last that long too.

But people who play for 2 hours then quit don't know how to spend their money. I've only ever didn't finish Crysis 2 and FFXII cause I usually know if I'll like a game or not.

Doh!!, you just reminded me, I never finished Crysis, it was just too boring. Maybe I'll get back to it one day.

So I'll have to restate my claim - I finish 100% of my PS3 games :)

Good thing I'm not most gamers. Completionists FTW!

I finish almost all games I buy. I've had a PS3 for a year, bought almost 20 games and the only game I haven't completed is LBP, but that game is a sort of long time project for me and haven't abandoned it so it doesn't count.

I tend to complete a game if another doesnt come out while im still playing, ive started trying to hold back on a new release until i finish a previous!

But big games like skyrim, and swtor i can totally enjoy but stop playing for a day or 2 and i dont have the drive to return to either :( i prefer 10-12 hiur campaigns with decent story telling etc

I finish most games, but the reason I don't finish some games is because they might lack depth/exciting.
