I was just thinking there about PS1 games I never completed. I remember Star Wars Episode 1 Phantom Menace was an annoying one, I got right until the very end were you fight Darth Maul, but I could never beat him, I actually remember I then played the entire game through again, and again I had a very low health bar when I got to Maul, and I never ever managed to finish the game and see the ending. Other difficult games I never completed include Duke Nukem Time To Kill and Land of The Babes, Dino Crisis 2 and A Bug's Life, lol just off the top of my head :D Can anyone else think of any PS1 games they couldn't finish?

I cant really think of a game I couldnt finish, however, I REALLY want to find a copy of Ghost in the Shell... man that demo was awesome. I did beat the demo like 100 times, but I have NEVER seen an actual copy of the game, so I guess that means it has been beating me for years and years... sigh. Awesome game if you ever do run across it.

Trying to get all perfect is Parappa would be insane... I remember playing the game for hours just trying to pass certain sections with the lowest possible score.. lol

I never finished any of the Metal Gear Solid games, including the PSOne version. It is my secret shame. Don't judge me! I was once like you!

I never finished Final Fantasy VIII.. My disc was scratched. I can purchase it on PSN, so I'll do that someday.

Oh you're missing out. I'd make time for those, especially Metal Gear Solid 3.

Persona, I played it for almost 100 hours. My Mega Memory Card killed all of saved datas including Persona, Final Fantasy, Chrono Cross, Tekken 1-3, and others. That's why I stopped to purchase Mega Memory Card or other card that it took more than regular memory card for any console.

Wow, that sucks. Come to think of it, I never finished FF8 because I got a corrupted memory card late in the game.

Funny, my PS1 memory card got one block corrupted, and when I put it in my PS2, I can see a blue block that has no memory space but says it's corrupted, and it won't let me delete it. So is that permanent or...?
#11 Posted by Shenmue_Jehuty (5207 posts) -

Oh there are so, so many. Here are a few noteworthy mentions:

- Lunar Silver Star Story (playing it again right now, but have never got past Gallion)

- Metal Gear Solid (got pretty far, but sadly stuff came up and I never picked it back up)

- Thunder Force V (I love this game, but it's hard as hell)

- Final Fantasy Anthology (FFVI to be more specific; many people consider it the best in the series, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll try again someday)

#12 Posted by WeskerTeam (1727 posts) -

Dino Crisis and Resident Evil 3. I bought both of them on my PSN but I still haven't taken the time to beat them yet.

Hmmm... maybe I'll play one of them tonight.

Please do yourself a favor and start playing them....NOW!! lol

Seriously tho like someone stated in another topic somewhere here, Hideo Kojima is the Tarantino of video games.

All the hype around the series is not hype...it's truth.

#14 Posted by GreySeal9 (25076 posts) -

Suikoden. It didn't really keep my interest, but back then I was not the JRPG freak I am today, so I'm actually going to order another copy and play the whole thing. I'll probably like it alot better now.

#15 Posted by JustPlainLucas (74900 posts) -
Tomb Raider. It was in my first PlayStation when it got stolen. I was on the last level. Chrono Cross, because I ended up losing the save after the memory card died on me. That's all I can think of right now. I try to leave no game unfinished these days.
#16 Posted by Change_MyShorts (75 posts) -

Monster Rancher.....my disc exploded

#17 Posted by WeskerTeam (1727 posts) -

Suikoden 2 was another good one I never finished.

Too many games to list.

#19 Posted by Seabas989 (11013 posts) -

Vagrant Story - I got stuck on one boss and didn't feel like backtracking to get the right weapon to beat it. One day I'm just gonna restart it since I did enjoy it.

Final Fantasy VIII - I stopped caring after disk 3 and so I saw the ending on youtube. And yeah I didn't like it.

That's it with the ones I own.

 Vagrant Story

Final Fantasy VIII

Seabas989

 

I had no idea people could actually beat Vagrant story. Such a neat unique game, an so unfogivably hard.

FF8 isnt worth anyones time.

Dont think I even completed one ps1 game lol that was back in the younger days for me. From what I remember, It would have been cool to finish spyro and crash bandicoot
#23 Posted by BarbaricAvatar (977 posts) -

I was far more of a completist in the PS1 days than i am now, but there were a few that slipped through the net.

Dino Crisis - Never really hooked me in the same way RE did and couldn't be bothered.

Formula 1 '97 - I never mastered the controls for it and was still playing GP2 on the PC.

Grand Theft Auto 1 + 2 - Doing what i wanted was preferable to following the story.

Micro Machines V3 - Got far too frustrating.

Mortal Kombat Trilogy - Fighting games were never my thing and i only ever had brief blasts on it.

R-Type Delta - Didn't have the patience.

Ridge Racer Type 4 - Didn't really like it and couldn't be bothered.

Silent Hill - Wasn't enough action for me.

Tony Hawks 2 - The frustration would always have me turning it off in a hurry.

-

All of these though would've been affected by whatever game i was obsessed with at the time.

ODT or die trying. This playstation 1 game. I could never beat. I tried but the very last level it couldn't beat.

lol you are not like me when it comes to that, never finishing any of the MGS games? That may be a criminal offence in some countries :D

#26 Posted by TheGamer1988 (69 posts) -

Tekken 1-3, and others.DeafNYCPlayer

Tekken 3 lol so you never got Gon and the doctor b? :)

Resident Evil 3.WeskerTeam

I just dug it out yesterday, and 5 hours later game finished, what a classic

#27 Posted by Emerald_Warrior (6581 posts) -

Tomb Raider.JustPlainLucas

This one for me, too. It was because I liked it in short doses. But in long doses it got boring. Then I got wrapped up in other long-term games like Resident Evil games, Metal Gear Solid, Syphon Filter, Final Fantasy IX, and others.

Oh yeah, Driver was another one, because I snapped it in half.

Now, now. Let's not start that debate again.
#30 Posted by Tenko72 (661 posts) -

There are a lot of games that I never got a chance to finish. Like Lunar Silver Story Complete, Blood Omen, Breath of Fire IV, FF VIII, FF IX, and many others. Currently playing BoF IV right now.

I got both Gon and Dr B with my Mega Memory Card. I was not lucky that Mega Memory Card killed them.

I have started Chrono Cross and Xenogears both multiple times and never wind up getting past about a dozen hours in. I like the genre and thought they were both good games but somehow I just always get distracted.

I've actually never finished Chrono Cross either...but Xenogears is a definite MUST finish. As if my avatar doesn't say how I feel about that game :cool:

Heart of Darkness comes to mind

Final Fantasy VII.  I love it but there is sooo much I hate about it. VII must be the hardest game in the series because the game starts off by being too easy, then it becomes Contra-difficult the rest of the game.  Also, it's my 4th attempt at trying to beat the game after I screwed up the first 3 times.  If there's any game to put you in a bad mood, it's Final Fantasy VII.

#37 Posted by benleslie5 (7988 posts) -

Vagrant Story- Is it possible to beat the game? I loved the gameplay and design but its quite a hard game.

Resident Evil 3- Found it frustrating towards near the end and ran out of items quickly

Tomb Raider Last Revolution- Lost track of time on what to do

#38 Posted by Sweenix (5957 posts) -

finalfantasy vii, to hard :(

#39 Posted by GSJones1994 (334 posts) -

Yes. FFVII is Contra-difficult indeed.

MGS 1 was a fantastic game with a killer story and great gameplay. However, that said, I remember being LONG AS HECK! So long that I never wanted to play through it a 2nd time. However I recently re-bought it, and it's on my list of games to play soon. But it's been YEARS.

#41 Posted by LittleMac19 (1638 posts) -
FF8 (made into Lunatic Pandora and couldn't beat boss so I got mad and quit) Rayman (Got the game in the late 90s and never quite finished it as a child, bought it again on PSN like a year ago and still can't finish it)

Pretty sure it can be beaten in less than 3 hours.

Yeah I think you're right, but I think it's about 5 or 6 if you watch all the cinematic scenes. Either way it's definitely not too long to play again, I mean wtf!?

lol yeah games were harder when we were younger, as our logic and reasoning skills were developing, but I can't believe you never re-played it with the stealth and bandana and you missed out on the tuxedo :D

#50 Posted by TheWestCoastDon (387 posts) -

Legend of Legaia, I loved it growing up but I got stuck at a certain part and then I lost my copy. I will go back and finish it one of these days.
