Bought Horizon Zero Dawn : Complete Edition last year around summer with very high expectation, still haven't completed it yet as i got turned off/bored by the grinding, repetitive sub quests. Also i felt bow and arrow are not my thang.

Well?

Pretty much every game I own. The last game I’ve seen end credits was Mario 3D World on my WiiU a few years back.

But I mostly play online and I often ignore the single player and go straight to the online portion.

I don’t care for story in gaming and I tire easily of solo play.

So Many on PS4 and it'll even more on PC. Bloodborne, Marvel Spiderman, HZD, Days Gone, Nier Automata, Uncharted lost legacy, all Assassin Creed games after 2, Shadow of Colossus remastered, Gravity Rush 1and 2, Detroit, Last Guardian come to mind. Main reason is lack of time, games becoming longer(open world) and of course practical life commitment.

Currently busy with Witcher 3 (160hrs) and recently platinumed FF7R.

yea, too many for me to reasonably remember and list here.

AAA games I actually see the end credits for these days are the exception.

if I stop having fun with a game, I stop playing it. and lots of games are over long and padded out now.

I beat pretty much everything, but the two i haven't beaten, which has been bothering me is TW3 and GoW. Most likely gonna beat GoW on the ps5, but going back to TW3 over 4 years later would be too hard.

I don't get it. Do you guys buy games you don't like or something? Or are you just bored of gaming? I mean if time is not the main factor.

And, yes, it is very possible to know if you'll like a game before you buy it. Discernment is your friend.

  • Fallout 3, Fallout 4
  • Skyrim
  • Final Fantasy X-2
  • X-Com 1-2
  • Starcraft 2 (the third expansion Legacy of the Void)
  • Sam and Max Season 1 & 2
  • Divinity OS (finished OS2 already)

I like these games, actually still have them all installed on my PC for years and played them quite a bit, just haven't fully finished them.

There's some other games I'll probably never finish, but these games I intend to finish, just need to stop messing around and do it.

@subspecies: It’s not that I don’t enjoy the games that I buy it’s just that so many games that I want keep coming out and I want to play them.

None! Every AAA game I buy, I ended up completing the game and it's rare I'll likely take a break like a week/months to come back and finish the game for good. (But Skyrim was a pain in the ass to complete the main quest) But as of right now, all my AAA games are complete.

Honestly, if anyone cannot complete simple AAA games and continues buying games but doesn't put effort into completing them, you might as well retire from gaming altogether.

I'm really good at managing my time and the time it takes to complete AAA games.

@davillain- Thats the spirit.Why buy AAA games if you don't plan to finish it? Great work. I also finish majority of my games with exception of few which dosen't live upto my standard of enjoyment.Before buying my games i do thorough research. then only buy. HZD i made a wrong purchase ( But HZD CE came free with my PS 4 :P ).

Usually research before getting AAA games, but sometimes I splurge and get seriously dissapointed. The latest was probably Assassin's Creed Origins. People said it was so different and much better than the other AC games Ubisoft spits out to no end. These people were very fucking wrong, and I regret putting 20 bucks towards a freaking AC game. I disgustingly rewarded Ubisoft for being terrible.

Other than that? Fallout 4, probably. So, so boring. So lame. Probably the laziest game Bethesda has ever made.

MGS V - Got bored about half way and stopped.

FF7 Remake - Still playing but it's slow going due to a lack of game time. Just got passed the train yard.

Ace Combat 7

Been looking forward to playing it for years. I buy it, and I suddenly don't feel like playing it -__-; I keep it installed for when I suddenly want to again.

Done that a couple times with Assassins Creed.

Most of them, LOL. Not really (kinda) but so many are too bloated or too long or simply don't hold my interest well enough. I'm not proud of it - but the point of gaming is to have fun, right?

Well think of it like this: have you ever been excited for a movie and when you finally see it ends up disappointing you? You thought it would be good, especially with high reviews, but it just didn't set with you. Now it's a lot easier to sit through a bad movie since it's only asking 2 to 3 hours of your life, yet people still walk out of theaters.

Same things happen with video games. Sometimes we live and die by the hype and personal excitement. It happens to the best of us. Now video games, unlike movies, ask a whole lot more commitment out of the audience than movies do, so I much more understand why people don't finish a bad game.

To answer the topic question, I bought and never finished Skyrim and Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. I had high hopes for these titles and they disappointed.

Now if you can say you finish every game you finish no matter how bad they are - more power to you - but it should be perfectly understandable why one might not.

I also have a number of remastered games that I haven’t finished yet and even some that I haven’t even started yet. However since I have finished the original versions of them I didn’t include them in my list.

I’d also like to point out that I do fully intend to finish those games. I’ll just get back them when I get back to them and do so, hopefully. 😅

If I like a game I'll usually finish it. Some games though test my patience and if I'm not enjoying it I'll just call it a day.

Some examples:

Metro Exodus, really repetitive gameplay, horrible voice overs, shit story (if you can even call it that), really wanted to like it but just hated it and finally gave up.

RE2 remake. Dated mechanics with a new coat of paint. Gave it every chance and just couldn't get it into it at all.

Jedi Fallen Order: God was this boring. Dreadful level design, awful characters, shallow gameplay designed around their stupid trademark wall running mechanic, fucking hated it.

RDR2. I demand this game is compulsory playing for all insomniacs. Never seen devs so much up their own ass as with this game. Horribly slow 'gameplay' hey it's almost as though they wanted you to watch the game instead of playing it. Guess what? They did.

A few, Horizon felt kind of dull, God of War was a game I said I'd go back to and haven't yet. There are a few. Might just go PC next gen until one of them proves worthy enough.

RDR2, GTAV, Witcher 3 and shitloads of everything else. Lost interest in most of the game arounf halfway.

Oh, been trying to play ME:Andromeda very recently but I just couldn't hold any interest after we secured the first planet and hero becomes the captain of the ship.

of my 150-200 PS2 games: I would say 80% of them.

60-100 PS3 games I would say 60-70% of them

250+ PC games probably 90% of them.

With PS4 I've been very good at completing games as my new rule is not to buy a new game unless I finish the old one first...

With that said:

  • Spiderman (I am 85% and kinda given up... it takes forever to finish)
  • Horizon Zero Dawn (half way)
  • Days Gone (half way)
  • Arkham Knight (40%)
  • SOTC remake
  • Mafia 3 Not really AAA at all but still

Probably more

Spider-Man

AC: Origins

AC: Odyssey

AC: Syndicate

GTAV (Got lost in online. Never finished story)

Jedi Fallen Order

Farcry 5

There are probably more. This is just what comes to mind right now. I tend to work 1 single player game at a time but really spend most of my game time online with friends. Took me a year to beat Red Dead 2 because I spend so much of my time in multiplayer games.
