Poll: Do you always finish games? (74 votes)

YES! 18%
No, rarely 9%
I try to complete most of them 43%
I a game is bad and wasting my time, i am not finishing it 23%
I will never finish all my games, too big of a backlog 7%

Just wondering if you guys finish games you buy or just have a big backlog . Do you try to at least play them and finish them?

Long RPGs are my only downfall, but usually I finish the games I buy.

No, I do not. Especially when it is a adventure or rpg game. I tend to get 90% of the main campaign finished, before starting a new campaign on a harder difficulty. Then I finish 50% of that and move on to a new game. This happened to games like The Last Remnant and Infinite Undiscovery.

I can count the number of games I've finished this year on one hand. And I don't even use the whole hand. I'm terrible at starting something and then starting one or two other things in the middle of playing it.

For instance, I got about 30% the way into Grand Theft Auto V, then decided it was time to play Arkham City, and there was going to be nothing to stop me from playing it (including a very noisy 360, which is why I bought the PS3 GOTY edition and started from scratch). Not even the fact I was enjoying GTAV could stop me. It was time to don the cowl and get to work.

I do finish the majority of them.

depends.

if it's difficult for the right reasons, i'll try my best and usually succeed.

if it's just frustrating, too long, or too boring, i wont force myself.

I do my best to complete each & every game. There are an few games (Afro Samurai, Hitman Absolution & etc) I haven't finished due to renting them & not having enough time to beat it.

Damn dude, how big is your backlog?

No.

A nasty habit of purchasing new ones before I've finished the ones already bought.

Not always, but almost everytime

I finish all my games (except for RDR). If I am unhappy with a game I atleast try to finish the story, but leave the side-quests, extra modes and other gameplay varieties untouched.

Oh some games yeah I do finish like Saints row the third, I finished the story line and played around a bit but games like skyrim where I haven't even finished the main quest yet with 300+ into game I just go off exploring and such.

I'm really enjoying tomb raider. I'm end up re playing it just for the story, turn up the difficultly and explore more.

I very rarely don't finish a game. When I do it's for one of two reasons.

One, I try a new genera or franchise and find that it's not for me.

Two, I find that it sucks too much and is not worth pursuing further.

I'm the same way.
