I like to fancy myself a gamer, I really do. However, when I look at my 5 year old Dell PC, and the stack of video games I've never finished, I have to admit, I'm not.

But with my son's help, I may just finish Lord of the Rings: The Third Age for Gamecube! Woo Hoo! We've only been working on it for almost a year!

Just for the record, here are the games I never finished:

X-Wing
Tie Fighter (almost finished it...)
X-Wing vs tie Fighter
Descent
Descent: Freespace
Myst (Anniversary edition)
Thief
Thief 2
Thief 3

Working on:
Dark Fall
Return to Mysterious Island
Final Fantasy 3 for DS
Trace Memory for Ds
Age of Empires for DS

Finished:
Syberia
Syberia 2.

Any other deluded "gamers" out there like me?

ME !

I just don't have time to finish playing:

Games currently working on but will probably never finish:

Dark Alliance on PS3
Bladestorm on PS3
Tales of Symphonia on Gamecube
Zoo Tycoon 2 for PC
Guitar Hero for PS3

And lots of others I have forgotten I play.

I WILL finish Assasin's Creed on my PS3 if it kills me.

I'm currently working on Gothic 3.

I usualy finish the games I play, I just cheat to do so.

I know, "Bad cheater". However, I play RPG's for the story line, not to waste hours of my time trying to level up.

I am very sympathetic to not wanting to waste hours of my life!

The reason I finished Both Syberia games was because of the storyline. It was excellent, and I had to find out how the story ended. I highly recommend Syberia to anyone interested in puzzle games.

Unfortunately, my pile of unfinished games is probably well past 100 by now. I honestly can't remember the last game I did finish.... GTA : Liberty City Stories for PS2 maybe?

Right now I'm making my way through Super Mario Galaxy on Wiii, which is amazing by the way, and I will finish that game. After that, I need to somehow make my way through Bioshock and Mass Effect on the 360 before GTA IV comes out at the end of April.

The game I'm most ashamed of for not finishing though.......Half-Life 2......which is keeping me from heading into the following 2 episodes. :(

EDIT : The last game I finished was actually Halo....last year.....yes, Combat Evolved, not 2 or 3, which I also do own, just haven't gotten to yet. :D

The last game I finished was Resident Evil 2. I can't remember if that was on PS1 or 2. I just play online nowadays.

I'm notorious for not finishing the games.

I don't think I'll ever finish Oblivion: Elder Scrolls IV GOTY Edition on PS3.
Working my way up the triangle in Dirt.
Motorstorm is about half done.
Finished Call of Duty 4 but I only play it online now.
Just started career mode on F1 Championship Edition
